Watch out for the unexpected. I had a trip to the ER for stitches this week and they said to take it easy off my foot till it is healed up. So one week no heavy lifting or any of that then the following week it is light lifting. GRR. Looking at ... Read more

I just read here on the spark how regular exercise can boost your grades by up to10 points if you are studying. It probably explains why I'm doing so well in school. I struggle to get the grades I do because I have some learning disabilities bu... Read more

I love summer. It is the one time of year where once a week I only have to spend a couple hours mowing the lawn and it counts as a butt load of calories burned. 200+ for 30 minutes. 400 + for one hour. Oh yeah! My pants have gotten so loose that... Read more

My school has a free gym that I signed up for. Since DH lost his job I lost the gym I had been attending. This is a huge blessing in that my school has all the tools I need to succeed, I just need to USE them. I often go to the gym to walk the t... Read more

I don't know what I am doing right or wrong but my clothes are fitting well. I had my monthly and it was not a issue at all. No bloat to chase me out of my nice clothes and into sloppy gear. Perhaps it did happen but I'm loosing the weight and i... Read more

Hi all. It has been a amazing few months here. Life while not joyful at all times has been a practice of picking myself up and carrying on even though I did not want to. I have been responding to a lot of heavy blows in a short amount of time. ... Read more
The end of the 40 days
Monday, March 29, 2010      4 comments

My 40 days of no fast food went pretty well in my estimation. I cut WAY WAY back on my ingestion of nasty food and saved a lot of money. I still had a few slip ups here and there but I found it a success. I cooked more for my family and planned ... Read more

Bad old habit of mine. In spite of everything I will occasionally break down and enjoy a cup of coffee. Lots of mixed guilty feelings there. MMM yummy that was good. Damn I'm not supposed to have that. Crap I gave in to it. But it doesn't measu... Read more

My 40 day fast from fast food is not going so well. Friday night we used coupons and went to the evil McD's. I will admit though that spending $15 instead of 25-30$ at the restaurant was nice. I was careful to get food's that were diet approved... Read more

I'm sort of participating in Lent. While it is not a part of my religious upbringing I find it to be a spiritual feast of sorts that is necessary while I am in the middle of a spiritual famine. I decided that for 40 days I would give up ALL fast... Read more
