Scales went up I guess I should be more upset
Friday, September 23, 2011      9 comments

The scales went up this week. No surprise. I haven't exercised really at all. I've tried to be within my calorie range most of the time but I've gone high on sodium by eating some really yummy deli turkey.. low- calorie bread, mustard, and deli ... Read more
*MY* picture policy on Spark
Tuesday, September 20, 2011      12 comments

Many of you have commented that you wish I shared pictures of my daughter on Spark. It took me nearly a year to post a picture of MYSELF on Spark. LOL! For the time being I am still maintaining a policy of not posting pictures of my daughter (or... Read more

Sunday, September 18, 2011      11 comments

It had to happen. I think every kid does it at some point. Friday afternoon my 5 year old daughter and I were home and hanging out. I was reading something and I looked up and saw the scissors. She was cutting her own hair. My little girl w... Read more

If you work 7am-3pm let me ask you this...
Thursday, September 15, 2011      9 comments

About 2 weeks ago I changed my work schedule and I am now working 7am-3pm. However I still haven't figured out how to EAT. I am getting up at 5am and right now I make a coffee and a sandwich (low salt peanut butter) at around 5:30am to get my da... Read more
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

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

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
