How do you handle religious differences?
Sunday, September 11, 2011      6 comments

Put this in the "No topic off limits" category I guess. How do you handle religious differences? I guess if you don't have kids it's not much of a problem but our daughter is at the age now where I feel she should be getting a religious educatio... Read more
Ugh! Transitions are so hard on everyone!
Saturday, September 10, 2011      12 comments

I've posted about this a bit on my teams already but I'm going to put it here anyway because I still feel like it is weighing on me pretty heavily. "She laughs so she won't cry"... I have been going through the motions for the last couple o... Read more
Recommend your dvds!
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      7 comments

I am thinking about getting a workout dvd to do in the afternoon. Something easy, no equipment required (well hand weights would be okay but other than that..). I'd like something that doesn't have a lot of floor exercises. ULTIMATELY if I am dr... Read more
New jeans without the "W" in the size
Monday, September 05, 2011      17 comments

After our camping trip I finally bought some jeans that were a size smaller than the ones I'd been wearing. The 18Ws have been pretty baggy to say the least but I have been hesitant to replace them. I am guessing I am not the only one who still ... Read more
update from this morning...

My husband rocks! Can I say that?? He got up this morning and dealt with her. He told me I could go out shopping. He told me to go to Lowe's because they have patio furniture on sale, and we obviously need some! LOL! He also told me to buy mysel... Read more
Frustrated with my 5 year old
Sunday, September 04, 2011      12 comments

Sigh... I am feeling like a failure of a mother this morning. I don't usually put this kind of stuff on Spark, but here you go.... my 5 year old daughter started kindergarten last week. On the first day she peed her pants at recess and was cryin... Read more
It's the little things, right?
Thursday, September 01, 2011      7 comments

I took the old car instead of the new ones. In a few years I'll be the one getting the new/used car. I'm good with that. More importantly though I took the parking spot.. the one in the lot that further away from the building, and isn't in a nic... Read more
up for the month of August
Wednesday, August 31, 2011      7 comments

So in spite of being DOWN for the year, I am UP for the month of August and not very happy about it. When you lose the weight as slowly as I have then it doesn't take much to be back UP to where you were months before. So I am UP now to where I ... Read more
After one year of Spark this is me--

I just crossed the one year mark on Spark and here you go... a work still in progress. I was hoping to be further along by now, but I am what I am... ... Read more
How do you handle a "binge"?
Monday, August 22, 2011      5 comments

I am usually pretty forgiving if I go over my calories a little but yesterday... wow. We went to Ruby Tuesday's and I ordered the salad bar with the chicken quesadillas. Let me tell you right now- never order the chicken quesadillas! Also do not... Read more
Serves me right- Spark bonus wheel
Sunday, August 14, 2011      3 comments

Oops! Looked at the Spark bonus wheel yesterday and was disappointed by what was on the wheel. Everything was like less than 10 points so I decided "I'll come back later". Well I came back later to track my food and fitness but I totally forgot ... Read more
The difference a pair of jeans can make
Friday, August 12, 2011      5 comments

It's obvious. It's common sense. It's really true. Clothes make the person. When I wear a baggy pair of pants and a baggy t-shirt I feel frumpy and invisible. I lack confidence. I go in and out of my cubicle and don't stop to socialize with... Read more
Planning a trip to the White Mountains

My hubby, our 5 year old daughter, and I are heading to the White Mountains for 5 days (including travel days) in a couple of weeks. I have a list of probable things to do, and we have a reservation at a campground in Lancaster, NH. We are 2 for... Read more
Whoops... so that didn't work

If you have a Smartphone then Red Robin has a great application that lets you calculate your nutrition, customize each item on the menu right down to the ketchup and tarter sauce so that you know what you are eating. Unfortunately I don't h... Read more
Celebrating today
Tuesday, August 09, 2011      6 comments

Celebrating today because it is my 8th wedding anniversary. 8 years ago in a park in Northampton/Florence with slightly less than 50 of our friends and relatives we got married. It wasn't a perfect wedding by any means, but the job got done, and... Read more
