So this morning I weighed in. I hate my scale. Not because of the number that it shows me (although that can be annoying) but because it is old and sort of gross and in my cellar. It's way too big to put in my tiny bathroom, and some "gun... Read more

Nearly 8 weeks after being called into an office and unceremoniously being asked to clean out my desk, as my job had been eliminated, today I start a new chapter. I know that I was fortunate to find a job in a relatively (in this economy) s... Read more

So last week I posted that I had lost my job - but that after 7 weeks of unemployment I had found another one (which I start on Wednesday!). As part of my emergence from unemployment, I was making myself accountable for my behavior over those w... Read more

I haven't been an active member of SP for a while. Other than using it to track my running mileage, I've pretty much been ignoring the site. Things have been a bit of a rollercoaster for the past 7 weeks. My position was eliminated withou... Read more

Day 1 So I have decided that I need a challenge. I don’t know if it’s the Maine winter or what, but I can feel myself getting complacent about so many areas of my life. And is it just me, or do you find that when you start to let one... Read more

So…the Highs! Last week, I did my second week of the 10 week 5K series in the lovely community of Athens Maine (ie the cutest run on the planet). Last week’s theme was Christmas in July. Can I just say that Christmas cookies at the end of a 5... Read more
