Just got home from blowing big bucks at Stop & Shop. I know Market Basket is cheaper, but S&S was on my way home and I figured they'd have a bigger selection (that ended up being only partly true though..) So now I'm sitting here eating organi... Read more
Here's a totally "duh" observation I've had recently... when I work out less, I'm less hungry! In the late months of 2008 I was working out a LOT - a few hours a day - and I was hungry until I'd eaten over 2,100 calories. Now I'm working out a... Read more
Today we went downtown and watched the Boston Marathon close to the finish line. I was so impressed that so many people were able to run so far, so fast. It was a lot more meaningful now that I am a bit of a runner...I know that these people w... Read more
Not much new to report, but it had been a while since my last blog entry. Today was my "official" weigh-in...I'm exactly two weeks into my latest weight-loss effort...and I am down another pound. Three pounds in all.

I'm Jewish, but since I've been with my boyfriend I've now celebrated Easter with his family five times, so I think I've earned the right to wish you all a happy Easter! Happy Passover too, though I don't think any Jewish Sparkers read my blog.... Read more
He's 5'10", I'm 5'6" and today we both weighed in at 163.2. Yuck! He looks great at this weight - me, not so much. Not only is he taller but he also has so much more muscle. Yesterday was a chest strength training day for both of us at the g... Read more
So last night I probably ended up (briskly) walking about 40 minutes from where I parked to the ballpark and back. We ate at Quiznos before the game - I had a chicken caesar salad and only used a bit of the dressing, and I gave half of my pita ... Read more
Six more school days until April vacation - thank goodness! I can't wait for some time to really spend on my goals!
The first Red Sox game of the season was yesterday, and I went out to watch at a bar across the street from Fenway Park. I... Read more
