Food: If It's In the House, I Intend to Eat It!!
Several of us post-holidays have been kicking around the perennial issue of giving into temptation --and since this is Spark People, that would be primarily in the context of food, of course.
Let me be frank: I don't have any will power... Read more
It's what we need, it's what so many of us find here on Spark People.

I've Got Sunshine on a Cloudy Day
Remember that old song by the Temptations? Also known as "My Girl"?
Well, my guy presented me with a light box beaming out a powerful 10,000 lux, which I've been using every morning. Sunshine bright!! I've positioned it over my lap top... Read more
This Will Be the Year That . . . .credit JGRIFF2712's blog
I will turn 60!! And how is that possible?? Gotta be delusional: almost-sixty still feels so so young, yes it really does!! Although if you'd told me that 60 could feel young when I was 25, I'd never have believed it. But given that I really ... Read more
Christmas Eve at the Dog Park!
My son and I took Charlie to the off-leash dog park this afternoon for a long romp this afternoon: he loved it! So did we.

But: amazingly, this far before the 25th, I have already decorated the tree, set up my Victorian village in billows of cotton wool on our living room mantel, and... Read more
My usual Saturday morning soup-making venture -- checking to see what needs to be used from the vegetable crisper before I go grocery shopping -- resulted today in an amazing rainbow production too robust to be characterized as a mere soup. Thi... Read more
Slouching towards Bethlehem
Christmas is coming . There is lots and lots and LOTS of snow here -- and although the work is piled as high on my windowsills as that snow, still I see Christmas in the not-so-distant future, and a bit of a breather at the end of the month.

Flu Two: Achoooo!!
OK, don't wanna be whiny here but: Thursday just as I was starting to feel human again a client came in and sneezed all over me for about two and a half hours.
I did NOT shake hands: short of cowering under my desk, I did my best to avoid... Read more
The Week Flu By
Despite having faithfully bared my arm for a flu shot at the very first opportunity, last Saturday's long-awaited visit with my sister was accompanied by sniffles and sneezes for both of us. Which developed over the past week into aches, sore ... Read more
Clothes are feeling a little more easy through the waist band: I had on my size eight pure wool (no stretch) black and white check pants this week with comfort all day long. There are still a couple items in the wardrobe that I know won't work ... Read more
Feeling a Little Podgy
Adopting WALKINGANNIE's approach to weight loss maintenance, I've been avoiding the scales and judging my maintenance by how my clothes fit . . .
And, I decided a couple days ago that things were getting a little snug!
