1 Year After Healthier Lifestyle - the Things I Take for Granted Now

Friday, January 15, 2010      8 comments

As I pulled one of my fave blouses out to dress this morning, I smiled. It suddenly dawned on me that this was among my "skinny" clothes, meaning, an item that ceased to fit when I packed on the extra pounds. However, it has fit again for some... Read more

OH PLEASE! (Jillian on TV last night)(and other misc. thoughts)

Thursday, January 14, 2010      12 comments

I rarely express my strong opinions as not to step on toes, but I just have to scream about this one. Seeing Jillian Michaels on TV last night made me shout out loud in protest. Honestly, I admire all the good stuff that Jillian has done. ... Read more

Almost One Year (in 12 Days) Sparkanniversary

Wednesday, January 13, 2010      3 comments

In 12 days, it'll be one year at this terrific site. I marvel that it has helped me reinforce so many healthy habits, and will not whine about my forever plateau. I think this might be my goal weight! Yikes! Not much to say today. Fight... Read more

Interesting to Hear Valerie Bertinelli's Food Struggles

Tuesday, January 12, 2010      3 comments

I was channel surfing and landed briefly on part of an interview that Joy Behar was doing with actress Valerie Bertinelli. She commented that, even after 3 years of being on a healthier eating path, she still has to be aware of everything that ... Read more

Societal Attitudes Toward Overweight People

Monday, January 11, 2010      6 comments

I recently talked to a woman who stated that it was difficult to find a management job in this city. Since she said she is experienced, competent, and a recent transplant from another city, she wondered if not getting a job after interviewing c... Read more

Keeping My Face in the Sunshine

Sunday, January 10, 2010      5 comments

Another day of lots of warm sunshine walking is my therapy in handling loss, sorrow and grief. I think I'll attend a grief support group on Tuesday to help myself through this latest loss. And my cousin who's like a sister to me is not doing w... Read more

Another Hike in the Warm Sunshine

Saturday, January 09, 2010      5 comments

Feeling good, and doing lots of hiking today. Sunshine is so cathartic and makes me feel healthy, strong, and ready to face whatever is in store for the rest of the day. Wishing all a fun day.... Read more

Grief, Cheesecake, and No Remorse

Friday, January 08, 2010      7 comments

This is the kind of confession you dread writing. In fact, you either put it off as long as possible, or refuse to write it at all. Yesterday, after a couple of days of handling my most recent loss of a dearly departed family member ver... Read more

So Much to Say, Yet So Little

Thursday, January 07, 2010      4 comments

In times like these, when there is so much loss in my life, it's tough to blog. If I have nothing good to write, I tend to not want to say anything at all. At times, I list topics I want to blog about, and other times, there's not one single t... Read more

New Year, New Loss

Wednesday, January 06, 2010      4 comments

A beloved family member passed away today. I am distraught and griefstricken. (But not eating junk as a result) Handling my sadness with a lot of exercise, among other things.... Read more

Divorcing My Scale

Tuesday, January 05, 2010      10 comments

I never even owned a scale before starting this lifestyle change in October '08. Guess I was one of the lucky ones who was able to eat anything, in any quantity, and not gain a pound. That changed a few years ago with hormonal tidal waves alon... Read more

Monday, January 04, 2010      5 comments

Things in motion tend to stay in motion. Wasn't that a Physics principle I learned in high school? Well, my momentum from 2009 has carried over and I am armed with the tools I need to continue this healthy living adventure. Exercise and... Read more

Shorts, Sunshine, Sweatin and a 2-hour Walk

Sunday, January 03, 2010      5 comments

Oh, how I complain about living in San Diego! Whine, whine, whine about high cost of living, tough job market and a host of other things. But the long and short of it is that it's January 3 and I have overdosed (in a good way) on sunshine duri... Read more

Went to the Movies w/o Popcorn or Candy

Saturday, January 02, 2010      8 comments

There used to be a day when there was no way that I could go to a movie w/o a feeding frenzy of treats. After a year's healthier journey, I went to the movies today and didn't even miss the treats. I'd eaten a healthy breakfast, had my water b... Read more

Enjoying "The Spark"

Friday, January 01, 2010      6 comments

Have to say that this is a great way to start a new year - reading the info that reinforces all I've learned after a year (almost) on SP. Thanks to Chris and the SP team, and of course, to all my sparkfriends. Wishing everyone a happy, hea... Read more
