I Can Admit When I'm WRONG!
Well, remember one post down when I claimed - it's All or Nothing, & depriving myself of my favorite candy (Bit-O-Honey) seemed like a good idea?
Well, I thought it was.
Until later that night I started to feel Really Lousy, & hubby as... Read more
All or Nothing
Well, I've come to the conclusion that I need to be abstinent rather than trust to my willpower, since my will seems to be out of commission.
We have a candy jar at work, it's usually safe for me - because I am not tempted by the strawberry... Read more
Things are better now
Thank you for reading & commenting on my post below.
I promised my DH that before I did anything rash, that I would talk to a counselor with him, & he was more than happy to come with me.
THAT meant a lot.
We have been going weekl... Read more
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
