Nothing new here, just a short rant. Buying clothes is frustrating. I spent a couple of hours last night trying on sweaters, because I'm really running out of clothes to wear to work! I thought I found something, but I think the super overly fla... Read more
Please Welcome Me to the *Twentieth* Century
So.... drumroll, please...
Today I acquired a microwave!
I know, I know... most of you are probably asking how I reached 2012 without one. I did have a microwave when I lived with my girlfriend, or roommates, but I haven't ever had one... Read more
My Tracker Makes It Look Like I Gained Weight Recently*

I finally made the tracker accurate this morning... Read more
Monday - Better Get to Work!
It's a great Monday so far. I didn't get enough sleep because I was reading a book I couldn't put down! (When will I learn?)
But I'm feeling good this morning. Had some green tea (no coffee), and a healthy breakfast. I'd set out cereal, pr... Read more
Reasons to Exercise - Reminder to Self
An unfinished list, in no particular order, of reasons to exercise other than "because I should" or "to lose weight."

1. To improve mood.
2. To incre... Read more

I Need to Get My Butt in Gear
I have been sluggish and lazy lately.
I have not weighed in a while and I'm sure my tracker is wrong. I have a fear that I have gained back most of my weight lost!
I am not tracking food lately.
I have still been aiming to drink a... Read more
Instead of Pizza
Well, I've been pretty active today (big cleaning chores, laundry, walk, and errands) and I hadn't eaten a real dinner yet. I was starting to crave something really "bad" like a greasy slice of pizza or some fried little tidbit.
Then I reme... Read more
1,500 Spark Points for March
Quick blog --
I've been lagging on both my exercise and Sparking lately.
A quick goal for March -- get back up to 1500 points for the month. 50 points a day shouldn't be that hard, right?

My New Secret of Success
Well, I've been on SP for more than a year, and although I've been pretty "religious" about tracking food (at least at times), I've never paid attention to sodium much. I knew I ate too much, but I always told myself I could only focus on so man... Read more
Continuining to Gain! And Serious Gymphobia
Wahhh --- well, I kind of feel like whining after weigh in.

I did some major reorganization --- furniture rearran... Read more
