Reflections of these past two days: 1) Drinking alcohol and going out to hear music (first time in eons) is fun. 2) Day-After drinking alcohol translates into leaden/heavy body (lower stamina and reduced lung capacity) as well as big 'hun... Read more

woulda/shoulda/coulda --- a whine for no one but me

Tuesday, August 09, 2011      2 comments

1) I've been treading water financially. Bravo on the one hand. O f*** on the other. 2) Living below my means in order to stave off anxiety has, over decades, caught up with me... and now there's less room to wiggle - and I can not forget abou... Read more

I'm writing this down. Marking it. In today's paper, the Sunday section, a quotation inset for a little profile on someone or other... made me tear up, tear way up. The quote: "(Mydad) always said, 'Jump into the river. It will just move a... Read more

184/8 and pivoting toward year 2 - JULY 2011

Tuesday, July 12, 2011      1 comments

Wow. Almost a year. Just a week shy of a year of Sparking. I had a slacky sort of last few weeks. I've been a little loose with tracking. Accurate, but the choices I've made can stand improving. I can and think I will re-consider the who... Read more

1500-1700 calories a day. That's what I've been eating since i got back from Athens. Not bad, right? It's the high end of my range. And, as I've seen for months, my weight loss is slooowww even at the low end of my range. Yep, the updown/keepy... Read more
