Thursday, November 05, 2015      5 comments

Anyone as old as I am might recognize those words from the song by the rock band Boston from back in the 80's. Great song, and not really on point with what's on my mind, but it HAS been a long time since I've bared my soul here on SP. Doesn't... Read more

A Three Week Check In

Tuesday, June 17, 2014      2 comments

So three weeks ago today, I went to the doctor for my annual physical, and I was, quite frankly, a mess. We spent a lot of time talking about the past, dark, 18 months of my life, and I left with the marching orders of doing some thinking about... Read more

Monday, June 16, 2014      3 comments

I have been pondering this for the last several days, after my committment to myself to give some to me every day. And honestly, I cannot decide. Being a person who can make an argument for or against practically anything (sometimes it is exha... Read more

It's a Choice - Part 2

Wednesday, May 28, 2014      3 comments

I read a really interesting article yesterday, talking about all the "self-talking" we do that ends up undermining our sincere efforts to lose weight/get in shape. It basically said that when we react to a "craving" with a rationalization, as t... Read more

The Learning Just Never Ends

Monday, March 17, 2014      6 comments

A few weeks ago, I blogged about my new plan to change my eating habits a bit and see where that took me. My plan was to go grainless for breakfast and lunch, and to eat a normal amount of grain (or perhaps "starch" is an even more accurate des... Read more

...since I've been able to talk about a successful weekend! We went away to a hockey tournament this past weekend, and I think I can declare it, for the most part, a success. I ate pretty well all weekend, managed to maintain my "no grain ... Read more

Making My Way Back

Tuesday, February 25, 2014      4 comments

I bought the spark activity tracker the other day and have started using it. It has been quite a long time since I have done any kind of exercise at all, so I decided that for the first few days, I would just wear it to get the baseline of my a... Read more

Yesterday, I spent quite a bit of time "signing up" for challenges in the Harry Potter challenge team I was invited to join by my old and dear friend Annie (Chalkdrawjumper). It has been a rocky start, as I was overwhelmed by the breadth of cho... Read more
