Inspired by blog posts from AHEALTHIERJESS and HARMONYBLUE, I have started from scratch on my goals.
While I'm not where I once was, I am still down 26 pounds from when I started SparkPeople four years ago (!!!). It's a bit scary wiping th... Read more
My sweet ride
I just realized I haven't posted a blog since 7/1 and nothing substantial since May. Eee!
But today I was inspired by the lovely Britt (BAM0827) to post something. She sent me this awesome SparkGoodie -
A note from the Universe
Hi, fellow Sparkers! Things are going okay - still vegetarian, eating healthily - and not okay - I've not been exercising at all (gah) - so the scale isn't moving.
I've been meaning to share this recent note from the Universe that I love. I... Read more
The Lent Report
I just realized I never reported back on my Lenten goals!
My plan was to give up all meat, artificial sweetener, alcohol and baked goods (cookies, cakes, pies, etc).
Guess what? I did it! And I lost 11 pounds!
I found that it wasn... Read more
Comparing protein supplements
I've decided to continue the vegetarianism that I started during Lent, at least for the time being. I've been relying heavily on soy products for my protein - in a typical day, I'll have soy milk at breakfast, edamame and tofu at lunch, homemade... Read more
Good notes from The Universe
From last week:
"In time and space, Sarah, if you just look for what's right - in others, in relationships, in yourself and your journey - you'll always find it.
Same when looking for what's wrong."
And from this morning:
"I... Read more
The Yogurt Report
As mentioned in my last blog, I made my own yogurt last weekend. It is so easy to do (it basically makes itself!) that everyone with a slow cooker and a love of yogurt should absolutely try it themselves.
Here's what I started with:

Some recent pictures
Nothing coherent here today, just some random things to report:
~ I went to New York City for work this week and this was the view from my hotel room:
My room had... Read more
So this vegetarian, teetotaler, artificial sweetener- and baked goods-free lifestyle is going pretty well! Imagine that.
Of course, eating vegetarian requires some extra thought, especially when eating out. Itís been interesting finding way... Read more
My favorite breakfast
For the last several months, I've been eating overnight oatmeal for breakfast every morning. I really love it and haven't gotten tired of it so it's what's for breakfast for the foreseeable future. I'm sharing my version of it to spread its good... Read more
What I made & ate for lunch today
How's that for a descriptive blog title?
I ended up working from home today and rather than eat what I would have packed for lunch today (frozen soba noodles from Trader Joe's with extra tofu to add, edamame, hard boiled egg), I decided to ... Read more
So about a week after that last blog, I just veered off course and did nothing to correct myself. But lately I've been giving thought to why I'm treating food and myself the way I have been and really craving a change. The advent of Lent last we... Read more
That's what I feel like last week was, a hiccup. On Monday, I changed my status on SparkPeople to read "looking forward to a healthy and active week!" And I was looking forward to it, being back to a routine with eating and moving.
But on ... Read more
Today's Note from the Universe
This one particularly resonated with me so I'm offering it up as food for thought.
Whenever something doesn't work out the way you thought it would, Sarah, instead of thinking t... Read more
Yep, three years ago today I joined SparkPeople.
It's truly amazing how fast that time has gone. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster, with some wonderful highs and discouraging lows, but I'm still here. And really, that's no small feat. The ... Read more
