I'm having a meh sort of day. Me and the kiddo have been sickish for a couple of days, and to add insult to injury, TOM showed up and I was up and down through the night from the pain. Part of me wants to say hang it and just dive into a rich ch... Read more
So, I let life kick me around. I got discouraged, I hung up the attempts to live healthier. It all went downhill from there. Grad school kicked my butt and I gained back 20 pounds of what I'd lost, and this time it's not wanting to come back off... Read more
Where's my mojo? Anyone seen my mojo?
I'm seriously stumped. I know I keep saying over and over I'm finally getting back on track, but I'm just... not. I'm still in a drifting, aimless haze. I've been here since we got back from vacation and it's just not clearing up. I know what to... Read more
Well, it was time to sit down and really give my goals a good look. It's been a couple of months and I needed to evaluate where I was, what I want and where I am going.
Getting in the 150 workouts at Curves this year isn't going to happen. ... Read more
I like squash, oh yes I do...
I am incredibly relieved that I did NOT plant any summer squashes this year in the garden. Because I don't think I could handle a single one more. As it is, my garden is producing copious amounts of cukes. So when I got to the CSA last week and ... Read more
Gardens, and bunnies, and pools! Oh my! (And ankles!)
So today, we talk about the major happenings in my life. When we left for vacation, my cucumbers were growing like gangbusters, with loads of cukes ready for the picking. So I'd asked my in-laws to pick 'em (and eat 'em) while we were gone. Whic... Read more
I won an Excercise DVD!
I was popping in to spend the wheel, answer sparkmail and check in with my teams, when I noticed a funny little thing on the wheel. A blue disc that said "Win Excercise DVD." And being me, I thought, "Heh, wonder what happens if you land on that... Read more
Actually, we've been back a week, but the last week has been a little crazy: settling back into routines, national holiday, repairing my pool for use, reinjuring my ankle....
Yep, that's right, I'm off my feet again. This time, probably onl... Read more
Ignorance is Bliss
Well, today was my W&M at Curves, doing it now since my normal day is in the middle of my trip. I wish I hadn't. I wish I'd just waited until next month, or maybe even never. I think I'd just rather not know I suck.
So, my grand total for t... Read more
The Last Supper
So no one can truly reach quite the same bang for a final meal as Christ. That's fine, I'm not one to want to compete with the divine, you know?
I've been reading Gastronaut by Stefan Gates. It's a funky sort of food book, and what happens ... Read more
It's a Beautiful Day!
This morning, I snuck outside to check on my garden. Now granted, it's small, only two 4x4 foot squares, carefully planted with the square foot garden method. Well, that's only half true. Because there's not a lot of variety because I had a mind... Read more
Here it is, the good, the bad and the ugly...
I halfway didn't even want to put this here, because I want to be a positive, supportive sparker, not a "whiner baby." But I'm really hurting right now, and I figured it would be better to get it off my chest now and be authentic than pretend th... Read more
Change in Focus
Some of you may have noticed my goals have been slightly tweaked since last night. But most likely not, since it's a small thing to notice... except for me.
I have come to the conclusion that my goal weight needs to be 120 and not 110, even... Read more
The Power of Habit
I have a Latin saying a day. Probably because I'm a nerdy kinda person and took Latin in high school. It occassionally comes in handy. Last Sunday, the saying was this:
Magna est vis consuetudinis.
Translation? Great is the power of ha... Read more
Yo! Check it!
That's right, baby, not only did I do my first Project Mayhem challenge, I survived it. And on my period no less. I totally rock. I had no idea though that I could burn off as many calories as I did on the Gazelle. I tell you what, that little g... Read more
