Hubby is leaving this morning for 10 days out of town, so I have the house all to myself. I am planning to use this time well! Every once in a while, moderation requires a bit of a shakeup, so there is going to be a combination of 10 days of hou... Read more
Those cute little girls are dangerous!
They got me in the grocery store: Girl Scouts. Those hopeful, smiling faces. How could I resist?
I limited myself to two boxes: one Samoas and one Tagalongs. I brought them home yesterday. There are only five Samoas left today.
But *I*... Read more
Paean to a Pair of Shades
I wore the same sunglasses for 26 years.
Not the same kind of sunglasses. The same sunglasses.
And this was not a pair that lived in the car and were only worn while driving. I wore these glasses camping, kayaking, biking and skiing. T... Read more
Filled with pride and excitement!
This has nothing to do with weight loss or working out, but I'm thrilled to bits to announce that my husband has been nominated for a Nebula award! For those of you who don't know, it's the science fiction writer's equivalent of The Oscars. He's... Read more
Gotta get off the computer
I love Spark, but it's making my computer dependence an even bigger problem. I can spend the whole day answering email and team messages. So tomorrow I have to start controlling and limiting my computer time. Life is passing me by while I'm sitt... Read more
Today's exercise: figuring out when to keep my mouth shut
On a regular basis, I read about member here on Spark people doing things that are unwise: exercising is a way that may not be safe; eating in a way that isn't very healthy. And I have to debate each time whether to speak up and give my advice o... Read more
February is cordially invited to LEAVE
The continually-sick thing is getting old, old, old. I'd be worried if it weren't for the fact that hubby has it, too. We are just useless, though. I haven't gotten any work done for most of the month. My brain is just not functional. And every ... Read more
Brand new day
Up on time, slept well, now let's see if I can actually manage a moderate workout instead of killing myself with my own enthusiasm again!! I do have a hard time with coming back slow--I am not patient with myself.... Read more
I think I overdid it yesterday. Couldn't get out of bed until almost 11. Ugh.... Read more
Back from the dead
I still want to sleep a dozen hours a night, but I'm feeling well enough for a mild workout today. Have to remind myself not to overdo things starting out. It's easy to get over-ethusiastic!... Read more
I just finished doing a 6 week challenges on one of my Spark teams, and I did lose a decent amount of weight--tomorrow is the official weigh-in day, but I stepped on the scale today and I'm down 17 pounds since the beginning of the challenge. Wh... Read more
Sick, yet successful
I've been too sick to do much of anything the last week, but I haven't used it as an excuse to eat bad food, and I feel pleased that I haven't fallen into my usual pattern of treating sick time as somehow excused. Because it's dejecting to get t... Read more
I woke up at 6am with a nose bleed, then went back to bed and was there until 11:30. I feel dreadful.... Read more
Hubs and I have both managed to come down sick. This is unusual; we generally are only sick one at a time, and don't tend to "cross-pollinate" our illnesses.
But hey, it's almost Valentines Day, and isn't this a time for loving couples to s... Read more
In the last few years, it seems like my winters have been spent swinging from one cold to the next. This year has been much better; a couple times I thought I was getting sick, but managed to stave it off.
Today, though, I think this cold h... Read more
