An unsparky week

Monday, April 26, 2010      9 comments

I'm back from a week of visiting my folks, eating a lot, not exercising and rarely logging into Spark. I guess you could call it a vacation from pretty much everything that comprises my usual routine. Baby was with me, but my mom was with us so ... Read more

Thursday, March 25, 2010      10 comments

My first race ever!! I'm so not ready because I didn't train as much as I should have. I am hoping the adrenaline and having all those people (albeit strangers) to run with will propel me forward. I really have no idea what to expect or how I w... Read more

...and trying to pinpoint why. Is it hormones? The weather? Cabin fever? Feeling pulled in different directions? All of the above? Probably. The "Emotional Eating Monster" has arrived and is wreaking havoc. I am eating sweets (brownies, cho... Read more
