Happy Saturday, Friends
Things, to be honest, have not been going well. Things have been downright bad. Financially bad, emotionally bad. My poor kitty, Ninja, has been very sick. There have been many trips to the vet in the last two weeks, and of course, many vet bill... Read more
Weight Loss Goals
Hello Spark Friends!
I didn't go to work today - staying at home sick with a cold (but still managed to get a short workout video in *and* cook a really healthy meal - yay progress!). I will likely be staying home tomorrow too. And of cour... Read more
Happy Saturday, Spark Friends!
Good morning! It's my favourite time of year, fall. I don't like when it's too hot or too cold out, so fall weather is my ideal, and it is such a short season! So I need to enjoy it while it's here. I will go out for a long walk today and enjoy... Read more
All the Way Home...
Finally, I walked all the way home from work today. I've been meaning to try it ever since I moved into my new apartment (just over 2 months ago). Today I was feeling pretty good after work, and the weather was good - not too hot, not too cold. ... Read more
I Love My Doctor
I know I'm not alone in this, but I've been afraid of doctors for as long as I can remember. I've always had lots of anxiety when I've had to go in even for a simple check-up. When I graduated from University two years ago, I had to find a famil... Read more
A Dragonite a Day Keeps the Doctor Away?
Just wanted to share a little success that I had today.
I moved at the beginning of July - I live in a large city, and I work downtown, my new apartment is close to downtown, probably about an hour's walk if I'd been brave enough to try (w... Read more
Today I had my three month follow-up with my doctor after my diabetes diagnosis. All the news is good, and she was so excited to see my results.
My A1C three months ago was 6.7 (6.5 and above is diabetic), and now is 5.7, which is a signif... Read more
Hello Spark Friends,
I'm writing my first blog post in a long long time and there is a pretty big confession I have to make. I just thought it would motivate me to put into words the things that I don't really want to admit.
The past t... Read more
Back to Spark World
This is the post where I sheepishly say that I'm coming back after an eight month hiatus where I managed to undo all the hard work I had put in before. I don't see a sheep emoticon, so I'm going to stick an adorable little bunny right here: ... Read more
Could Be Worse...
I'm actually really happy today. I've gained 0.6 lbs!! And while that's a step in the wrong direction (my goal is to lose weight), I'm shocked and really happy, because this month has been incredibly tough on me. I've been eating terribly out of... Read more

Looking forward to coming back to Spark, getting o... Read more

Lots of lessons learned this week.
A couple of things that happened this week have really made me think twice about what I'm doing, and it's time for me to try a new strategy.
The first thing was my doctor calling me for some blood test results, which put a scare into me. M... Read more
Time to Re-evaluate
Well... I've had an exciting week, full of celebrations. It's been wonderful, but it's definitely thrown me off track. I wouldn't say I splurged this week, I have tried to be smart in my food choices. However, with eating more meals out than usu... Read more

Today until Tuesday is going to be a flurry of big celebrations.
My friend, in the same graduating class as me, has a special graduation banquet that she invited me to, so I'm looking very much forward to tonight. Tomorrow I am celebrating... Read more
