Murphy's Law

Thursday, May 08, 2014      6 comments

I guess my intention of starting to make some blog posts again didn't go exactly as planned. Haha! This week I remembered that my three year anniversary at SparkPeople was coming up and today I thought that I should start thinking about what to ... Read more

The Returned

Saturday, March 15, 2014      11 comments

I haven't made a blog post in a long time. Back in January 2012, I was on the cusp of reaching my 80 pounds lost milestone. To follow-up, I reached -80 two days after that blog post, and then continued to lose another 10 pounds over the next few... Read more

Don't Bid So Close to Me

Saturday, January 14, 2012      3 comments

Right now I'm in Las Vegas and don't have a lot of extra time to write, so this post is going to be a little different than my others. In fact, I'm probably going to edit it with more info later, but I wanted to get a couple things jotted down h... Read more

The Nutcracker

Saturday, December 31, 2011      6 comments

My premonition of today's stress came true. The last official working day of the year came. And, it went. It was definitely crazy, hectic and every other word there is for sheer madness. But, at the end of the day (literally, it's 11:58pm!), it ... Read more

Grinches Be Crazy

Friday, December 30, 2011      3 comments

I thought I got all of my whining out in yesterday's post. But, I'm still caught up in the whirlwind of end-of-year-crazy at work. Tomorrow is the last "working" day of the year, although I'm going to try to negotiate some deadlines into the wee... Read more

Express Christmas

Thursday, December 29, 2011      2 comments

I'm in the middle of what feels like the most stressful week of the year for me. Although, just as the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence, a stressful week always seems like THE MOST stressful week ever. So, who knows? In ... Read more

A Christmas Gift

Sunday, December 25, 2011      4 comments

Yesterday, I blogged about how frantic I was while I was trying to buy my family's Christmas gifts the day before Christmas Eve. I was wrong when I said that I waited until the last minute to get everyone's gift. There is one gift that I've been... Read more

The 23rd

Saturday, December 24, 2011      4 comments

What a crazy day! I've gotten into the terrible habit of waiting until the absolute last minute to do Christmas shopping. My family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve every year. So, that means I usually start shopping around the 23rd of Dece... Read more

One Week

Wednesday, December 21, 2011      6 comments

With the holiday season in full swing, last week was a crazy one for me. For a lot of us here, social events and the food and drinks that go along with them pose major challenges. We have parties and events all year long, but rarely are so many ... Read more

That Still Small Voice

Friday, December 16, 2011      6 comments

Last night, I attended my brother-in-law's college graduation ceremony. Graduation ceremonies can be long (and boring at some points). But, the silver lining is that they are always filled with a lot of positivity. Words of encouragement and con... Read more

The Treaty

Friday, December 16, 2011      3 comments

My new absolute favorite holiday treat is Williams-Sonoma Peppermint Bark. This is definitely not health food (although it has some calcium and almost no sodium). However, as I understand it, one of the premises at SparkPeople is not to fully om... Read more

And the Pop-Up Sale

Thursday, December 15, 2011      4 comments

I don't like buying clothes. For years, I only shopped for shirts and jeans when I needed to replace others that I had outgrown (often in a state of emergency). Now I need to replace the clothes that I've... What's the opposite of outgrown? Outs... Read more

The Corn Field

Saturday, December 10, 2011      3 comments

Today I was going to write about my shopping experience yesterday and my clothing dilemma, but now I think I will save that for next week. I don't make that many blog posts, but I'm working on it because a) it helps me score some bonus points in... Read more
