Quite a Day!

Monday, April 26, 2010      3 comments

Well, it was quite a day today. Not in a Sparky kind of way, but just in general. Today I had my surgery that helped me bid farewell to the kidney stone that has been plaguing me for a month now. I had the stent removed, (no more discom... Read more

Hi everybody....sorry if this is too much info, but many, many Spark Friends have been concerned about my health and well-being after my recent bout with a kidney stone, so I thought I'd give you a quick update. I went into the hospital las... Read more

Trying to re-join the land of the living

Friday, April 09, 2010      6 comments

Whew! It's been a crazy couple of weeks! I am starting to feel more like myself again after being down for the count for the past 10 days. I am one of those "lucky" people prone to kidney stones. It's a pain--both literally and figurativ... Read more

Really feeling crappy

Friday, April 02, 2010      12 comments

It's been such a hard week for me. I've had a kidney stone since Wednesday morning. At first I thought it was just going to be the typical stone that I flush out with tons of water and cranberry juice. But by mid-afternoon it became clear tha... Read more

Is it the chicken or the egg?

I had another bad week. I'll just put that out there first. I haven't been very active on SP lately, and I'm not sure whether it's because I have been bad, or if I'm being bad because I'm not being very active on SP. It's the classic "whi... Read more

A brownie sundae. Are you kidding me?

It's been a rough food week. I was over on my calories most days this past week. Not terribly over, as in falling off the wagon, into the ditch, washed away by the flood waters, never to catch up to it again over....just a little over, like 20... Read more

How many times do I have to fall off the damn wagon?

I'm an intelligent person. Really, I am. My college degree says so, and the fact that I'm able to hold down a responsible position, and that people come to me for advice and information confirms it. I have strong writing, reading comprehensio... Read more

No Harm Done

Saturday, February 27, 2010      6 comments

Weigh-in day today, and no loss to show. It makes me kind of happy though, because it seems as though my body has found a way to be comfortable with the weight I'm at....so even when I'm not being good, I'm still able to maintain. Because trus... Read more

Um.......What?!?!?

Saturday, February 20, 2010      13 comments

Those of you who regularly read my blog are probably sick and tired of hearing me complain about how overworked I am....how many hours I've put in....etc, but although it's a valid complaint, I do want to put it out there that I do love my job, ... Read more

Another update from the frozen tundra

Saturday, February 13, 2010      5 comments

Greetings from Minnesota....snowbanks up to my shoulders, and I'm tall! And temps way down there, kinda makes a person want to hunker down with a blanket and a remote control, and maybe some comfort food. But so far I'm staying strong. ... Read more

A relaxing weekend....but not very Sparky

Monday, February 08, 2010      10 comments

I had a good weekend--one that was relaxing (downright lazy) but not successful in a Spark kind of way. I got the errands done...the grocery shopping, the weekly WalMart run for toilet paper, etc,. caught up on emails, played with the dog....yo... Read more

All I lost was.....a week!

Saturday, January 30, 2010      8 comments

Today was my weekly weigh-in, and monthly measure-in. And, I'm exactly where I was last time I weighted and measured. But it's not all bad. I didn't expect any movement on the scale, since I was forced to make other parts of my life (work, mec... Read more

Something good came out of a lousy week!

Saturday, January 23, 2010      9 comments

This was not the best of weeks for me. I was so far behind at work that I ended up working 12-hour shifts twice and 10-hour shifts twice. Friday was the only day I left on time, and that was because we carpooled and I HAD to leave. (Blessing ... Read more

A little progress

Saturday, January 16, 2010      10 comments

Today I recorded my first loss of the new year. Yea me! I feel like I'm making some progress for the first time in awhile, and it feels great! I started my week out doing well fitness-minutes-wise, but kind of fell off track as the week went ... Read more
