This week has been hella stressful at work, so I am very glad to be moving into the weekend. Of course, the weekend will have its own struggles - ones I'm sure my fellow Sparkers are very well acquainted!
Yes, I am talking about the weekend... Read more
Be vigilant every day
Day 2 of logging in and blogging! It's the small goals, right?
What a beautiful thing to see comments on yesterday's blog posts! I certainly did NOT expect to see that, but it was hugely encouraging, as today was one of those days where I d... Read more
Long time no see - once again!
Hello Again! As is typical of me (and I think we all understand this place), I gradually stopped logging in, stopped watching what I was eating. And is typical, I found myself in an unhappy, unhealthy place.
But back around June/July of thi... Read more
So on Wednesday, the strangest thing happened. A quarter to 3, I suddenly had a sore throat. Weird. It did not go away with water, so I wasn't too surprised when the next day I woke up with a cold.
So I've been sick for about 5 days now. I'... Read more
I am proud today. Yesterday, I stuck to my plan. I ate the Medifast foods I planned. When I went home, I finished the cous cous and grilled veggies in the fridge - about 1 cup of cous cous and a LOT of grilled veggies (peppers, eggplant, zucchin... Read more
This finding a "new routine thing" *SIGH*
I hate saying "I'm back" because either it seems my previous return didn't last or it really highlights how long it's been that I've taken a break.
I have had my braces for nearly a month, and my mouth is definitely more accustomed to the l... Read more
Finding a new routine
So I got off vacation last week and started slowly getting back into my routine: work, exercise, eating, etc.
And then I got braces last Wednesday! This is a good thing, because as a result of the DNA appliance that was used to cure my slee... Read more
Back from Vacation!
Howdy do! I am BACK from vacation! And I got the most amazing picture:
Yes, that is Stonehenge!
Anyway, while I was on vacation, I was def... Read more
Vacation starts tomorrow!
So tomorrow is my first day of vacation! I'm nervous and excited - traveling to a new place and all! I plan on trying to watch what I eat, but I also want to enjoy the local food too.
Anyway, I won't be on much the next two weeks. Wish me l... Read more
THE SCALE MOVES!
It's probably been like two weeks since I came back on SparkPeople and started monitoring what I ate on MyFitnessPal. In that two weeks, I hadn't really seen the scale move much at all. In fact, Scale and I had a heart-to-heart awhile back.

The Results Are In...
And I think I did pretty darned well!
Honestly, this weekend was so hot, all my sister and I wanted to do was lounge in front of the AC. But I did get off my booty and ran on Friday morning, though it was a tough run - so hot!
At the g... Read more
Goals for the Weekend
The weekend is coming! And with this being a holiday weekend, and knowing what type of person I am, I am going to have to gird myself and ready myself for the trials ahead.
Tomorrow, I'm going to a soccer game. Fun, but of course, junk food... Read more
A good day!
Yesterday turned out to be a good day - particularly last night.
Once I got off Medifast and adopted my old Bad Habits, dinners had gotten, well, out of control. You know what I mean - you have eaten pretty good all day at work, avoiding th... Read more
So I haven't made any significant scale victory (boo!), but there is one non-scale victory (NSV) I have made: I have checked into Sparkpeople every day for the last 8 days!

Summer is here! Well, it's technically been here for nearly a week, but for my area, today and this weekend are expected to be HOT. So I figured I would do my part and post some stuff about Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke:
Heat Exhuastion (... Read more
