I just remembered

I get to dance tonight. I GET TO DANCE TONIGHT! Yeah! We're practicing for a bellydance "flash mob." I think that's a very, very cool idea. :) And it makes me happy because the choreography is Egyptian/Turkish fusion - my f... Read more

The Perfect M&M's

Had NO plans during the holiday weekend... and grateful for it. After spending so much time schlepping around the northeastern portion of our country, I was ready to chill out and stay home for a while! I feel a little like my eating suffe... Read more

Heard something awesome today

"Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintaining is hard. Pick your hard." I like that. :) Not too much time to write an in-depth blog post today - but I'm feeling good and motivated. I'm all set up with my water and my heal... Read more

Home again, home again, jiggity-jig

Monday, June 27, 2011      0 comments

And I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. We were up early nearly every morning, the earliest of which was Thursday because we had a 7:15 a.m. load-in time at the theatre (ugh) - and we had long days, starting with workshops at 8:00 a... Read more

Home stretch!

Just got to get through today, and then I am on the first real vacation I have had in YEARS. A whole week off! Yeah!!! It's not exactly going to be a relaxing vacation - lots going on. Andrew and I will be headed up to Rochester, New... Read more

Beautiful day!

What an amazingly gorgeous day we're having! Weather such as we're having - cool, sunny, no humidity - relaxes me sooo much. I can actually FEEL my blood pressure dropping. The bus was very empty on the way in to the office this morni... Read more

Sorry, no time for substantive blog entry today, so here's the bullet-point list: -I danced, literally, ALL WEEKEND -I ate, literally, NOTHING BUT JUNK. (not entirely true, but for me, even a little processed/junky food is enough to m... Read more

Peas, please

Thursday, June 09, 2011      1 comments

I have talked before about my garden, but I must reiterate: I LOVE MY GARDEN. Today, as a snack, I brought in a little pint container of sugar snap peas that my garden has been producing in abundance. These are peas that can be eaten pod ... Read more

Not Without My Cheese

I think that my switch to vegetarianism is slowly making me develop a lactose intolerance. It was not intentional for me to stop consuming dairy products; it just sort of happened. I used to be a milk fiend, drinking tons of it when I was ... Read more

Back me up on this

Wouldn't it be great to be able to log into Spark every day and have the first thing you see at the top of your page be a list of the REASONS why you want to lose weight? I think that it'd be great to have a daily reminder of the very speci... Read more

Why so resistant..?

I grudgingly changed my ticker to report a one-pound loss. Most people do this with great joy - but for some reason, I felt like I had to give myself permission to do it... like the scale had to read the same thing two weigh-ins in a row in ord... Read more

Trying again!

Thursday, June 02, 2011      0 comments

Well, let's see if we can have a better day today - shall we? Yesterday was crappy on a colossal scale. I've no wish to repeat it. *~*~*~* Cleaned nearly all of the downstairs yesterday, and it felt good... it was the only way I coul... Read more

Today's Plan

Wednesday, June 01, 2011      0 comments

1) Work. Because, you know. Bills. 2) Eat only the foods I planned. I usually don't have any trouble with this, but I really fell off the wagon yesterday as far as unplanned eating; really didn't do too badly, calorie-wise, but still -... Read more

Yes, my inner child is a 12-year-old boy.

So I had to take Andrew in for his colonoscopy today. You might be wondering why a 28-year-old guy is getting a butt probe. Well... he's had some issues in the past, and he is getting them done in an abundance of caution. We did all t... Read more

Ground control to major TOM

Tuesday, May 24, 2011      1 comments

And I'm not talking about the song, either. Women know what TOM means. Men - just... go about your business. You don't want to hear about any of this. I guess I should have realized it would be a blockbuster when I had a meltdown... Read more
