Updating My Weight & Other Things
Tuesday, April 19, 2016      27 comments

When I first started here on SparkPeople my goal weight was 160 lbs. Once I got there, I added in strength training and exercise. I added muscle (and pounds) and lost inches. It took me a few months to figure out how to maintain, and my weight f... Read more

I've tried 4 different ways to rotate this video. It isn't happening. I'm just posting it because I'm about to throw sh*t. (It's been 4 hours since I recorded this and my mood has TANKED, mostly due to this video not behaving itself, the f... Read more

Yeah, yeah, it's been a week since I've updated. It's not you, it's me. I'm still feeling overwhelmed with what I have on my plate. Today I have a kettlebell workout, a haircut and counseling, and somehow in between those I need to cram in some ... Read more
I'm a STRESS eater not an EMOTIONAL eater (and yes, they're different)

Last week I was super stressed, what with work, marriage counseling, off-Spark blogging, walking group, planning a cooking class to teach, etc. I was mentally drained. I'll own up to it: Friday night I had to stop at the grocery store to get my ... Read more

So Tired
Saturday, March 19, 2016      19 comments

I've been awake since 4:30 am. I never sleep well during TOM, and I was extra crampy last night. Add to that the time change and I'm wiped out. There's nothing good on tv at 4:30 am, either. So here's an update: My workouts have been ... Read more
Taking a Socializing Time Out
Tuesday, March 08, 2016      14 comments

Wow. So I got back from my trip to my mom's yesterday afternoon. It was a nice weekend but I got ZERO alone time and my normal regimented schedule got thrown for a loop. It made me crabby. I like my schedule, I NEED my alone time, and i re... Read more

So, in spite of my dramatic status update yesterday, counseling went well. I just cried a LOT. As in, couldn't stop. Our counselor is very Eastern-minded, so he had me do some breathing exercises to try to calm down. I just felt very vulnerable.... Read more

My food intake yesterday was weird. I got up in the morning and ate my usual breakfast of a chicken sausage and two eggs, then we went to counseling. Coun... Read more

According to the scale I've gained almost 4 lbs in the last month. Ugh. Now, I've been eating a lot of sodium this week, which could have skewed my results, but I won't be able to find out until NEXT month. (My weight has a low point just before... Read more
I've walked the Sahara!

It's been an odd week. Work is fine. I'm no longer in pain for my tooth, which is good. My root canal isn't until the 22nd though, so keep your fingers crossed that the pain won't return before then. (Side note: I have bad teeth. I t... Read more

My tooth is feeling much better. I'm painless for the most part, now that I'm halfway through the antibiotics. It doesn't hurt when I bite down or prod it with my tongue. Every now and then though it feels inflamed without being painful. When th... Read more

I'm pretty sure I have pulpitis in a tooth I just got a crown on in October. The pain is intermittent, which is good, but severe when it is here, which is bad. I'm not so much upset about getting the root canal because it will hurt as much as ha... Read more
