Better Than Yesterday
I implemented my Coca Cola plan today and I must admit that even though I add more calories than I like, I feel better about myself. I drank almost all my water (still have about 12 oz. sitting next to me, waiting.), but I'll drink it for sure. ... Read more
When I say I'm a coke addict, I hope no one thinks I'm a cocaine addict. It means that I love Coca Cola. I don't know why, because I never did until about a year ago, but I am and it's a battle I have been losing for a long time. I also struggle... Read more
The Word Of The Day
My thirteen year old niece was on facebook, as is usual, and constant, and annoying, but I digress. Anyway, she was on facebook and she put a picture of someone she thought was "sexy". Frowning slightly, I went to her page and looked at her frie... Read more
You know how people say that there is a song for every occasion. It's true. Any situation, if you think hard enough, there is the perfect song for all situations. The same can be said about food.
Weddings, birthdays, you gotta have cake. Summe... Read more
Carrying The Weight
Where to begin this one...
It's not about physical weight today. I lost my dad a few months ago. I lost my mom a few years ago. I buried a friend last week. I wish there was a way to lose that weight because it is painful.
But, in a way, it ... Read more
When I was three hundred pounds, I knew my body. Seems kind of strange to say that. I didn't like my body, but I knew it. It was comfortable and familiar despite it's faults. I knew how much clearance I needed for hallways and doors, how much it... Read more

Blog About Nothing in Particular #1
The highlight of my day had nothing to do with working out but it did happen at the gym. As soon as I got there, a woman was having trouble getting her car started. I am not mechanical at all, but I know how to put on jumper cables so I gave her... Read more
Back In The Good Old Days
It's time to take a trip down memory lane. It's not always great to look back, but I feel the need so bear with me. I just get these hankerings for all this stuff. Like caramel mochiados. Big Macs. Jelly Beans. Coca Cola. Been thinking about the... Read more
The Pull Up Machine
So I went to my new gym for the first time. It was awesome. It has a pool, steam room, sauna, cardio room, weight room, blah, blah, blah. Enough of the boring stuff. They have a pull up machine.
Ok, like everyone pull ups remind me of gym clas... Read more
One Year Later
Back again. I had to shelve the Sparkpeople goal for most of last year. Unfortunately, my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and passed in December. As most people who have lost their parents know, it is a pain one learns to ... Read more
1/2: And That Was That
End of one year and the beginning of another. As far as last year goes, it wasn't the best for my spark diet. I lost months of training, but as of 2012, I'm back and hopefully back on track. The holidays were rough, but after the final weight ta... Read more
12/19: The Return From The Darkside
There was the oatmeal pies. They're made in Amish country so there is lots of sugar and butter and they are fantastic. I ate a dozen in three days.
Then there was the quart of Ben and Jerry's New York Fudge ice cream. Yum, but I a... Read more
12/09: Crisis Averted?
It is very difficult to work for someone who is/was your friend.
My friend got a supervisor job and when I was looking to change jobs, she contacted me and wanted me to come to work for her. We had worked together at another posting and had g... Read more
