I need a dairy detox. I'm lactose intolerant-ish... its usually not a problem if I avoid some major triggers (aka-parmesean) and take lactaid. Lately though I've been eating too much cheese and dairy products, and even with lactaid, my body ha... Read more
This weekend = bad for my diet... good for my soul?
So this weekend was chock full of events... with food. Unhealthy food. That I ate. *sigh*
I worked out a lot this weekend too, but the calories still came back to bite me in the butt and the scale. No loss and up a pound, but at least ... Read more
I'm going to try and do a quick little update before lunch.
Yesterday the co-worker I don't like walked into the meeting room early while I was setting up. She proceeded to THROW her bag on the table, shaking the entire table, then kicked ... Read more
Has anyone tried P90X?
I can't believe January is already gone. I was only down 4 pounds last month, but hey, its progress. I'm still pushing through my Wii Fit kickstart and am going to finish my 30 day challenge, but now after I'm done -- I throw in my regular wor... Read more
I've been a little MIA lately
Sorry for not keeping up with everyone's blogs and posts lately. I don't know what it was, but all of a sudden a million things had to get taken care of.
One of which -- broke up with Brandon, and he was like, okay. That was it. No big d... Read more
Giving myself a kickstart
I dusted of my Wii yesterday and wanted to revisit EA Sports Active. The whole reason I bought a Wii originally was to use Wii Fit (what a joke!) and then EA Sports Active. When I first got it over a year and a half ago, the leg strap baaaaare... Read more
Dilemma... need non-diet related advice
Okay... so here's the thing that I've been stressing about. I started my online dating foray as one of my Spark goals in late November. I've been dating Brandon for about 3 weeks, and the longer we see each other, the more I think I just want ... Read more
Happy Friday Everyone
I'm going to make it a good weekend. I started off strong with sleeping in, going to seminars all morning and Chiptole for lunch. Yum. Finally have to start doing some work though in a bit with my prostate cancer study...
I made smart fo... Read more
Stress, stress, and knee problems.
I have had a stressful week. Its the first week back with undergrads on campus, which means I almost hit 2 as they were illegally crossing the street and not looking...
I had a Monday with Brandon though before the week started. I'm still... Read more
Spark seems to be working
I have been a little distracted lately (quite a few date nights out with Brandon) and I was worried that it would affect my weight loss... Its been slow going the last few weeks; I think like everyone else, at first the weight seems to fall off... Read more

Spreading the Spark Today
At our weekly lab meeting, I made a comment of "oh I don't bake anymore" since another girl brought in cookies... which led to my admission of my 70lb weight loss in 8 months. Seriously, a lot of people are just too PC to say anything.
So ... Read more
I tend to overanalyze...
I tend to overanalyze things, but yesterday's blog post became relevant a lot sooner that I had expected it to. Brandon and I have only been talking since right after Christmas -- we had our first two dates last week. So honestly, I don't in t... Read more
So when do you tell a new boyfriend that you used to be fat?
So here's my predicament. I'm online dating now, which has taken an upswing for the positive. I've been talking to and gone on two dates with this one guy, and we're really hitting it off. Except, I make him nervous. To him I'm perfect and b... Read more
So yesterday evening was interesting. Went on a coffee date (and had my herbal tea) and the guy was okay, but just in a different place in life -- but as soon as I got home, the guy from last night called and we ended up talking for four hours.... Read more
