Once again, we are reaching the end of a round of the BLC and it's time to think about how I'm not going to lose all the ground I've gained during the round, especially since this is a long break (5 weeks) over the Christmas and New Years holida... Read more
Contrary to what it may seem, I am still around... but I have not had a lot of time to be on line (and sometimes did not have an internet connection even if I had the time) so I have not had a chance to respond to all the wonderful comments I go... Read more
To be honest, I'm expecting a kind of crazy, rough round. We just closed on our first house, where hopefully we will live for a very long time, and we will be gaining possession of the house next month. Then we will not only be moving in, but ... Read more
This weekend, being the first weekend of the new BLC round, we had a fitness test to measure a baseline we are working to improve over the course of the round. I had a rough time with this in part because I had a root canal last Monday that is ... Read more
I realized that I'm still struggling with a lot of the same things I was dealing with last round as far as goals.... too much stress, too tired, and still figuring out this life after grad school thing since I basically graduated and then moving... Read more
This is a bit late as I usually post this as soon as registration starts, but life has been *really* crazy for me lately (and for some reason my internet access annoyingly less than reliable... grr!).

Wow, I can't believe that it's already the end of the round. This was supposed to be my relax and focus on myself round... and it couldn't have been farther from the truth. I've been running from one thing to next--moving to a new apartment, f... Read more
I took this quiz on what my fitness personality because, well, I am a bit of a geek when it comes to personality quizes and I was curious, LOL.

I am really struggling with my goals this round, in part because I graduated on Friday so am still figuring out this whole life-after-school thing. I've been working 12-19 hours 7 days a week pretty much non stop except for the holiday break si... Read more
Thursday I took a simple fitness test to provide a baseline for my level of fitness. The idea is that this will provide a baseline by which to see my progress over the next 12 weeks.

Tomorrow is the start of the next round of the BLC and that got me thinking about goals. Not just healthy lifestyle goals, which I'm currently wrangling with, but goals in general.

Like many of my sparks friends doing this challenge, I really struggled with writing this but then I went to write to someone else "It's because it's hard that it's important to do" and realized that I should be saying this to myself.
So he... Read more
It was suggested that I post ideas of foods that I like/that work for me to help people get ideas.
Some reminders of things I am looking for:
