I think it's time for a challenge.
So I know I'm usually all hippy skippy positive thinking gal up here, and I am trying to be, but I think it's only fair to admit this is not true 100% of the time "off screen."
I have a couple of things coming up that are making me start t... Read more
Turkey Day check-in
Posting from my phone! I'll be back on a computer probably Monday, to drop you all some blog comments and spark goodies!!
So, here we are! The day after Thanksgiving. It's officially the start of the Christmas season.
Which my husband... Read more
Once Upon a Time, the scale said, "...
So this one is partly about the scale, we all hate to love and love to hate.
It's also kind of about my philosophy.
I know I'm not done yet, so what do I know, but this time on Spark is different for me. Different from everything else ... Read more
I survived Thanksgiving #1!
This Saturday we had Thanksgiving with my FIL (Thanksgiving with MIL's side of the family will be Thursday!).
It's *always*, holiday or not, an hours-long festival of eating at their house. Usually 4 courses - there are appetizers, hummus ... Read more
Curiosity killed the cat
I DID go to the gym with my friend, but the lifeguards called out, so no swimming for us. Sadness!
However, we did have a nice run instead. I took it pretty easy, so my hip is a only little sore today. I think I'll be okay for my TURKEY ... Read more
Aw, I just want to RUN!
My gym is open! I have gas in my car! The roads are open!
But my STUPID HIP is still being stupid. Booo.
I did get in a short run today, and then some walking. Better than nothing! But I wish my hip would just BE better, instead o... Read more
A little Told Ya, a LOT of MUD, then wind, bread, and back.
We are okay. Thank you for asking. Sorry for not checking in sooner. We were very lucky in the storm; our part of NJ did get hit pretty badly; quite a few people are still without power. We were fine - only lost power for a c... Read more
Accountability! Plus, I'm not sure how to feel...
SOOOOOOOOooooooooooo, I'm back.
Thank you awesome SparkFriends, for putting up with my super crankiness combined with total disappearance. And for the kind words while I was away having tantrums. haha.
Anyway. Accountability!! I ... Read more
Is 31 too old to still have tantrums?
Is it ironic that I have been trying to be more positive lately (like even about bad/annoying stuff), have a positive outlook, and this morning basically took a giant crap on my head?
I think maybe it is, but I don't feel like looking up ... Read more
Running. and post-vacation update.
Today there was no Wall.

"Just finish this song."

"I know I can do a little more."
No inch by inch until the end.
Today there was only ... Read more
Rant; Ramble: Raincoats. Resentment. Rage. Redemption. Relief. Realization.
So I'm leaving for vacation on SATURDAY (so soon!). I have plane tickets, passport, train tickets, hotel reservations, plans, numbers, maps, directions, itineraries, all that good stuff.
It's going to be rainy and chilly, and all I have ar... Read more
Officer Mealtime says: "That's all you're eating???"
Weekend stuff plus a message board thread got me thinking about "food pushers" - you know, those people who are always trying to get you to eat. Whether it's junk food or dessert or seconds, family or coworkers, we've all had them at some point... Read more
N is for number. It's also for nerrrrrd.
I like data.
I know all the issues with BMI as a measure, I just think for where I am now it is helpful. I enjoy poking about with the math. We'll see how my body responds as I get closer to the top of the chart's "healthy" range for m... Read more
