Things I'm doing to bring the New Me into the New Year: 1) I ordered the Spark Solution today! I looked for it yesterday at a local retail bookstore but I didn't find it. That's OK because I need a few more days to clean and organize my w... Read more
It's Over, Jack!
Thursday, January 02, 2014      4 comments

"It's over, Jack"! Those are the words I said out loud in my car as I drove past my neighborhood Jack in the Box restaurant today. Sounds kinda crazy, but I did it to emphasize my commitment to myself to break some of my bad eating habits. Gett... Read more

Like many people, I am using today to reflect on the past year and to set goals for the new year. This morning I went back to my weight records from the period August 2009 to April 2010. I lost 23 pounds during that time. I lost an average of al... Read more
Ice is Nice?
Tuesday, February 01, 2011      7 comments

Somehow staying home today due to the ice storm was therapeutic because I did things that I had never done before like wrap outdoor faucets and scrape melting ice off my driveway in case I needed to go somewhere. Not that I wanted to get out in... Read more

On Dec. 4, 2010 I blogged about being back again. Where did an entire month go? Hmm. Well, the best thing about SparkPeople is that you can jump back in anytime! I appreciated the invitation to join the 10/10/10 challenge which began ... Read more

Whew, it's been about 3 months since I've been active on SP and it shows. Lots going on in my personal life and lots of stress has come with it. I will weigh in tomorrow to get the official number, but I have gained back at least half of ... Read more
I Miss SP!

Wow, what a busy week that flew by at lightning speed! Our son is playing basketball on a team in a fall league at his school which started a couple of weeks ago. He has games two evenings a week. The regular season will start next month, so t... Read more
Thankful for SP!

I was just about to write a crummy, complaining blog about how I just don't want to do this anymore--you know, tracking food & exercise, measuring my various body parts to see if inches have been lost, checking in with my teams, trying to stay p... Read more
Stopped the Medication
Thursday, September 16, 2010      4 comments

I stopped the medication (my last dose was Monday morning) and as of this morning, I'VE LOST 4 POUNDS! Doesn't that say something about side effects and water retention? Yesterday my doctor suggested restarting the Armour Thyroid after my symp... Read more
Finally a Blog!
Monday, September 13, 2010      3 comments

Work has gotten quite a bit better and I'm not working 10-11 hour days in the foreseeable future. Working those hours and being highly stressed at work has taken it's toll. I got some extra rest over the weekend and I was ready to face the day... Read more
Worn Out
Tuesday, August 31, 2010      8 comments

I hope that I'm not getting sick. So much stress at work, so little sleep due to worrying about the stress at work! There's something in the air allergy-wise as others have been sneezing. My throat feels scratchy tonight, so I'm going to bed e... Read more
Nothing like a good haircut!
Saturday, August 28, 2010      4 comments

I felt really good today after I got my haircut! It's the second time this person has done it, and I think she did an even better job! I usually try to wait 6-8 weeks between haircuts, but it was driving me crazy. I had her cut it quite a bit... Read more
I Can't Believe I Felt Like This
Thursday, August 26, 2010      4 comments

I truly wanted to just walk away from my job today after finding out about the huge financial mess that my predecessor left! However, since several people from the budget office and the accounting office are all trying to figure it out, I at le... Read more
Focus on the Goal
Tuesday, August 24, 2010      4 comments

I just realized from my friend ALMMOM, that she focuses on her goals. She gets so much done and is still flexible. I have so much to learn! I have difficulty prioritizing things at work because more and more tasks are thrown my way almost ... Read more
Watershed Moment (aka My Longest Blog)
Saturday, August 21, 2010      3 comments

" I think that I am enjoying the journey more and not focusing so much on the numbers" That is a statement that I just wrote on Karin's Sparkpage. Because I honestly meant it, I decided to blog about it. I have been kind of down recently ... Read more
