If you read my blog, you know I had a rough week. I had a heavyweight title bout with candy, and candy won. For four consecutive days I was having these mini chocolate binges. I've been fine about my eating otherwise, not feeling at all deprived... Read more
Today the goblins and ghoulies were not knocking on my door, but my inner goblin took over for a while. I had a, shall we say, candy malfunction?
And it wasn't even just today. I've had two sorta awful days, foodwise. Yesterday I bought one... Read more
Me and My Knee
Yesterday my knee was hurting big time. I had done some step aerobics on Tuesday and I felt something go wrong while I was doing it. It hurt in the wrong way and I knew bad things were coming. I took some ibuprofen before bed, but when I woke up... Read more
Not one of my best days. Woke up achy from the ab crunches yesterday and generally being old. Ate a piece of my pizza for lunch (which was wonderful but I ate two pieces yesterday, so this was not a good choice). And then because I still felt hu... Read more
Today I Get It
I was feeling meh about exercising today, and it's so easy to talk oneself out of moving one's body, isn't i? But I always come to SparkPeople and log on, read the features, cruise a few blogs.
Of course I track daily, and tracking is qui... Read more

Me and My Metaphor

Well I fell o... Read more
Ever the Student
My one-month "sparkiversary" just passed. And what have I learned?
1, Spark People is a huge font of information.
That is good but also challenging. Good, because there are tools and report generators galore. Challenging, because I am co... Read more
Saved by the Pants
This past week was a hard one for me.
September 7th is the anniversary of my sister's death. She was murdered when I was 17 and she just 21. It was a horrible experience, and even though it has been a very long time since I lost her, I kno... Read more
The Importance of Being Labeled
The other night I made a meatloaf for dinner. It wasn't the healthiest recipe because I used ground beef, not even lean ground beef, but I am rather new to this healthier lifestyle and I had it in the freezer and beef is too expensive for me to ... Read more
Welcome To Me
I feel like a drop of water that has fallen into the ocean that is SparkPeople.
I know. I talk this way all the time and I can't help it. I'm a poet and a writer, obsessed with words really. I always seem to see everything in images and me... Read more
