Vicious Cycles (Menstrual Issues)
This is going to be a bit of a TMI entry. I'll not go into anything graphic. This is me reaching out to see if I'm the only one...and hopefully, someone else will come across this blog and find that they are, in fact, not alone in this.

"...in my life, I've loved them all..."
All of the jobs I've had have nothing to do with my Associates Degree (in Applied Science, for Graphic Design). They've been minimum-wage, and usually, the pay never truly equaled the work that was being done – be it in the auto parts warehouse,... Read more
It's been a hot minute, SparkPeeps.
Such a hot minute, that many of the folk who I befriended along the way no longer seem to be active! Sadness.
A lot has changed for me within the last year. I left my family's home in December, and move... Read more
It's been awhile...
Other half and I began our lifestyle changes on March 7th; it's now March 18th. I've gone from 181 lbs. to 174.
I'm pretty happy. :-)... Read more
Off since spring, attacking with a vengeance in December.
Winter is here, and I don't enjoy the fact that my jeans aren't as loose as they had been.
I thought for sure that I'd be fine (again...likely story, lady) if I paid attention to t... Read more
What a difference a year makes...
I ampretty sure I missed the 1-year anniversary of my lifestyle change.
February 15th, 2012, I weighed in at 186.6 lbs.
February 15th, 2013- I am sure I was hovering between 154 - 156 lbs (it fluctuates).
I am still pleased, even if... Read more
Man, I had myself all psyched up and everything - I was writing out those "favorite things" blogs, I was hitting the elliptical every day, was being mindful, etc...and then I just stopped.
Stopped wrting and posting blogs.
Stopped trackin... Read more
Dear me (yet again)...
I know you feel gross right now. You feel unhealthy, off, icky. The weather changed dramatically, you're facing changes at work, and general confusion.
In the midst, you're feeling chubby, bloated, and not like you've lost 33 lbs.
Wearing... Read more
Too much at once, it seems.
There's been so much ridiculousness in the world lately. Have you seen the news? So much negativity. And it's played in my house. And it makes my father rage. And I have a short fuse after too much of him yelling at the TV.
There's been tou... Read more
These are a few of my favorite things: Activities (Part 2).
Good evening, Sparkies! :-)
On that note, yep, I work with kids. K – 6. And they like to MOVE.
I attended a training (I'm Moving, I'm Learning) for work in 2011, and it was amazing and well worth it. They ga... Read more
These are a few of my favorite things: Activities (Part 1).
CONFESSION: I set out with a purpose; to share the things in life that move me, and make me move.
...and in doing so...will have a three-page text document written, when it's all said and done. At least.
I don't want to overwhelm you, fri... Read more
These are a few of my favorite things: Noms: Part two!
Gratuitous food list ahead - mostly to remind myself that I need to focus on the good stuff!
So, I wrote about how I tend to slip up earlier. That did happen today. I'm not sure if it's because I'm re-adjusti... Read more
These are a few of my favorite things: Noms.
Maybe I'll make this into a mini-blog series. :-)
This is inspired by those Spark Member Success interviews that pop up and around - "What do you eat every day? What... Read more
Good things! :-)
I don't think I've weighed in since October, at least.
I had a Spark Checkup waiting in my Spark mail folder since November14th.
I had one terrible woman's week, and a not-so-bad one..Halloween and tiny candy bars...Thanksgiving and re... Read more
