This is essentially me at work every day. I try to resist, but always end up giving in. A couple of months ago I was able to 'give up' coffee for over a month, but "one small cup" led back into my full-blown habit. Ugh. If anyone that has waylai... Read more

...and I actually did a spot of exercise this morning. Just ten minutes on my CardioGlider machine, but I could really feel it in my arms! I know ten minutes is pathetic in comparision to the rest of you goddesses, but if I can just start with d... Read more

I've really been neglecting SparkPeople for a while now. First, huge apologies to RDEPASS and all of the Buddhists team. I'm sorry I haven't been a mindful moderator. I'm going to try and pop in a lot more frequently. I've been mostly readi... Read more

Last night should have been my 3rd day for Week 1 of the C25K program. Honestly, I was just too lazy. I wanted to keep reading the new Harry Potter book, and I wanted to pig out on snacky foods. I have no excuse. I've been slipping back into my ... Read more

Wow, it's beautiful outside today. Mother Nature has been thus far very supportive of my endeavors to start a running program. Bright blue skies with puffy white clouds, a nice breeze.. it feels like May weather in late July. Odd, but I'm not co... Read more

That's right, I actually went for a jog tonight. ME! I shouldn't get too ahead of myself here. Let me clarify by saying I successfully completed Day 1 of the Couch to 5k program. I had attempted it a couple of weeks earlier but about ten mi... Read more

1) I'm completely addicted to sugar. I had suspected as much, but it didn't really strike me until I noticed how off-kilter I felt until I ate some. It's come to a point where I eat so much of it daily that I don't feel 'normal' until I have it.... Read more

I've been ... eh. Not exercising at all, that's for sure! So, unsurprisingly I gained back all the weight I lost in March. I'm thinking of cancelling my gym membership. It's such a drain on both my wallet and conscience knowing that I never go. ... Read more
