Feb 1 -- A fresh new month with some improvement goals
Friday, February 01, 2013      1 comments

I can't believe January is already gone and a new month is beginning! Time just flies past the older you get! January was not a perfect month, but it was a good start to my Spark program. There were a lot of days that I did well with my nutri... Read more
Jan 28 -- Back to Good News Club & torn about church
Monday, January 28, 2013      2 comments

OK, first of all, I wrote this blog earlier today yet it has mysteriously disappeared so if this should happen to post twice, I won't be surprised! It's been a crazy busy day today. We had our first day back at Good News Club today and it act... Read more
Jan 25 -- Bye bye Hershey girl :(
Friday, January 25, 2013      7 comments

I sit with tears rolling down my cheeks. The thought of dinner is nauseating, but I'm pretty sure I don't have the flu. The best dog we've ever had has moved on from this life. We were standing there, saying good-bye and reassuring her as the... Read more
Jan 22 -- A few lazy days, but getting back on track
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      1 comments

I weighed in this a.m. and I'm up about 1 lb. This isn't too big a deal and it's really not a surprise; with the craziness of the long weekend -- the bridal shower, the wedding, the kids home for an extra day with the school holiday-- I didn't ... Read more
Jan 19 -- Shower down, wedding to go
Saturday, January 19, 2013      1 comments

The shower went pretty well. Steff was very excited about her KitchenAide mixer. She got some really nice gifts and I'm very glad so many family and friends cared enough to come and support her. I know I didn't eat well today; the cake was an... Read more
Jan 18 -- Feels good to stay home for a change
Friday, January 18, 2013      2 comments

I can't remember the last day I didn't have somewhere to run. I had a lot to do here at the house, but was so glad to just stay here! I got about 80% of the church cookbook typed and unless I get some new submissions, I'm done typing. There a... Read more
Jan 17 -- Hard to feel unproductive after 6 hrs of volunteering
Thursday, January 17, 2013      2 comments

There isn't a lot to say about today. I love my time at PCC but 6 hours of volunteering plus drive time doesn't allow for a lot to get done. Still, I will never be sorry for the time I spend there. Today an abortion-minded client chose life f... Read more
Jan 16 -- The "IT'S DONE" list
Wednesday, January 16, 2013      6 comments

I read a Sparkpeople article that said if you make a "to do" list, it can be so overwhelming that you don't have the drive to do even one thing on the list. Instead they recommended making an "it's done" list. At the end of the day, you can l... Read more
Jan 15 -- Too much to do, too little time
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      3 comments

It seems like I'm running in all kinds of directions but not sure I'm getting near enough done. No matter what I give up doing, 3 or 4 more things pop up that I need to do. My niece just moved her wedding up to this coming weekend so we have ... Read more
Jan 14-- Trying to push my way through
Monday, January 14, 2013      2 comments

I'm still reeling from last night, not because the tablet is history and Eric is upset, but because I let myself raise my voice to my children over something so stupid. It's like I set there with words pouring out of my mouth, the whole time th... Read more
Jan 13 -- I hate myself
Sunday, January 13, 2013      4 comments

I feel like the crappiest mom that ever existed. I don't know if I'm more mad at myself for letting things get to this point of technology addiction with all of us, or because I lose my cool when something stupid happens and I can't make it bet... Read more
Jan 12 -- Started off rough but the day is getting better :)
Saturday, January 12, 2013      1 comments

When the alarm went off at 4:30am, I was not happy! I had stayed up past midnight and my body does not function well on 4 1/2 hrs sleep! Unfortunately, there wasn't really away around getting up. My oldest had to be in Shelbyville at 6:00am a... Read more
Jan 11 -- What a day, what a day
Friday, January 11, 2013      0 comments

Sometimes you just feel like you've done everything wrong. Today is one of those days. I wasted most of my day messing around on the computer, not being productive on it mind you, just goofing around on Facebook and such. I didn't get much d... Read more
Jan 10 -- Got to stop myself from snacking
Thursday, January 10, 2013      2 comments

I've done really well today. I know a lot of the food choices weren't terrific but I stayed within my target range on every category except fiber. I'm very proud of my accomplishments, particularly because I managed to eat out at lunch (Sub... Read more
