Hero, not the Victim
*** this is a very personal blog, so if that kind of stuff bothers you, click 'escape'.
I read somewhere once that in your life you can show up as the Hero, or the Victim.
When I was in my first marriage, which was not working, &... Read more
I took off That Dress ...& got another one a size up
There is no shame in ordering the next size up. All clothing manufacturers are different, & if you (like me) are also searching for a bargain , guess what?
That bargain dress is going to run small.
I used to Love shopping at Ba... Read more
I put on That dress
Something made me try on that dress this morning , as I was getting into my gym clothes.
You know the dress. It's the one you get online in your size & then it arrives & there's No Way.
Sometimes you send it back...& sometimes you hang... Read more
Too Cute to be Stupid
One of the more obnoxious things is Ted aka Mr Spooky & I at the gym, because we are still stupidly into each other & cute.
Everybody else is there on Total Business & T also insists on being next to me on the machines, still.
It's reall... Read more
Yoga date night!
One of the reasons that pushed me over the edge (& THANK GOD) of joining up at the gym again,
was because Ted aka Mr Spooky had been feeling like he was losing range of motion, at the tender age of 44.
He said he wanted to try yoga.

I woke up today feeling 'skinny'.
You know that light, clean good feeling from working out regularly , eating healthy & well (gross) being regular?
So I stripped off my pjs & leapt on the scale.
It says I am UP 3 lbs since last we... Read more
How Long Have I Been Here?
Am I sleeping? Have I slept?
I had to follow up my question with a quote from Fight Club.
Yes, I am still here.
I am still fighting.
About a year or so ago, I was complaining (again) about my weight, & how I'd gained back almos... Read more
Well, walking has been going pretty great!
As in, I DO it.
I fell of my circuit training kick after we went hiking & I saw these pictures that totally depressed me.
I know 2 months of circuit training isn't going to completely snap m... Read more
Will Walk for Nailpolish
Yesterday I saw a hand (playing glockenspiel) & that hand had on very pretty orange-red nail polish.
In the 70s they called that color China Red.
I didn't like it then, but I love it now.
So, like a horse with a carrot, I said I cou... Read more
Circuit Training & H.I.T
I feel really good today. Do you want to know why?
Today makes the end of 4 weeks of circuit training (Mon-Thurs) & I have been doing between 35-50 minutes per session.
All DVDs (I'm training at home) are Jillian Michaels, & she rocks... Read more
I know I have not been a good Sparkfriend, I tend to just put in my tracked foods/exercise into the tracker on my mobile phone,
& then don't think to check in on my computer for some actual interaction (& motivation)... Read more
Today my friend couldn't make our walk ~ so, I walked alone!
It's nice to have a walk buddy, but ultimately, it's up to ME & I am the one who wants to get into 'that dress', & not quake in fear when I get an email saying someone has tagged... Read more
The Reckoning- what am I doing?
It's ok, & just part of my fitness journey-
but I fell off the fitness track- although I've been pretty good about tracking meals & staying within my limit (albeit at the top of my caloric intake)
& not eating junk,
I am still at a plat... Read more
McDonald's comes through!
*disclaimer- this is about fast food, so if you are not into that, see you another time!
So, I guess 50 % of my blogs are turning into fast food reviews, I guess I will have to come up with a Spooky the Cat ranking system- using witch's hat... Read more
3 years on Spark
So, I realized I have been on Sparkpeople 3 years!
I have in that time lost 20 lbs, put 13 back on, & am now 8 lbs away from goal.
Oh yes, I have a Mini Goal weight too!
I want to be back in the 140s.
A couple of weeks ago my husb... Read more
