Ireland! Germany! USA!

Tomorrow I'm flying to Ireland for 4 days. It will be my first trip there and I'm very excited! I'm more than 1/4 Irish (my dad's mom's maiden name was McGrady) and I've always wanted to go there. This will be a "working vacation" as I've ... Read more

I posted on my status but not here on my blog. Both exams went just fine. I was amazed at the score I got on the written test because I felt like I had run out of time before I got in everything I wanted to say. But I guess I covered everything ... Read more
Testing...1, 2...

Tomorrow is the 2-hour written final for my master's and Tuesday is the oral exam. Just two days of testing, not three! The written test could be on just about anything, so there's really been no way to study. I'm just going to trust that... Read more
Weak - No! - Week Ahead

Wow, after finishing my paper and turning it in, I really felt like a wet noodle, a deflated balloon, an old dish rag, (insert further similes here). I didn't get much sleep last week and then all the tension that had built up over the three w... Read more

Today I celebrate two years straight of daily 30 minutes intentional exercise. On some days, it's been just an easy walk, or marching in place in front of the TV. Other days, a run, a long Nordic walking tour, or maybe a session with Jillia... Read more

Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the Summer 5% Challenge:

...but I thought I'd check in. It's going to be a push to get this paper done. I have a hefty teaching schedule the next couple of days, so won't have much time to write, just to continue to read and gather my notes. I do have the outline set up... Read more

After my last blog...especially after reading some of the comments, I wanted to be sure that I didn't come across as gloating over being a size 6 and aiming for a size 4. We're all where we are in our Spark journey and everyone is doing their be... Read more
Oh, to be 4 again
Sunday, May 27, 2012      9 comments

Size 4 that is. It may have something to do with the fact that I've gotten out the summer clothes and am still the same size I was last year, but my motivation to lose has really increased lately. I remember thinking then that I would need some... Read more

...and another 15 to go! This morning, I finally sent off my final project report to my mentor and to my evaluating prof. It hasn't really sunk in that it's DONE. Of course, it's only one step in the finals process for my master's. On Monday, I ... Read more

I've set myself a May 7 deadline for completion of my master's project. It's going to be a stretch but I can do it. I'll probably take a vacation day or two to chain myself to the desk. One thing I've learned through my studies is that it's hard... Read more

Yesterday was my 5th Sparkiversary!? How did I miss that?! A new Spark friend had to point it out to me. Now, I knew it was in April but I thought it was coming up sometime in the week ahead. ... Read more

Sometimes it's just not a good idea to click on the 10-day forecast button on the weather website. They're predicting rain and cold weather for the next week and a half! I take that back - the sun is going to shine on Tuesday - or maybe Wednesda... Read more
