Busy day today

I didn't get a workout in today; unfortunately my oldest child threw up in her bed again tonight. This sucked... a LOT. So I had to take her to the doctor instead of going to the gym. Sinus infection. Yay. Worked a lot. Cooked supper. A ... Read more
A little bit cleaner

So today on SparkCoach, the challenge was to organise your kitchen so that it was easier to be healthy. Well, that's a tall order for me. As you may know from previous posts, I'm a borderline hoarder... I don't actually hoard, but I'm a to... Read more
In the hotseat
Monday, August 20, 2012      12 comments

This isn't fitness related, but it is health related, if not my health. Today was my husband's disability hearing. We've appealed three times, and this is the best chance we've got to make this happen. We were both nervous going in, but m... Read more
Do unto others

Lately, I've discovered something about myself that I *really* don't like. It's a terrible habit, and one I absolutely must stop. I'm very critical of other people's... Read more
Quick and easy meal ideas

SparkCoach prompt ahead. :) I'm actually really terrible at coming up with things that are simple, healthy, and fast. My one thing I do love is my turkey lavash wraps, inspired by the ones they sell at Kroger in the deli. I LOVE those thi... Read more
Ringworm. I hates you.
Friday, August 17, 2012      13 comments

I've been suffering from ringworm for about TWO MONTHS now. It's to the point where I've just about given up. We're fairly sure the initial infection came from my cat; The whole family had it, but I had it the worst. At its peak, I had about 8 m... Read more
I haven't lost as much as I thought I had

Went back to boot camp again today. I'm still sore from Tuesday, but not enough to warrant skipping class. I was pleasantly surprised with myself. I jogged more than I thought I was capable of, and was able to keep a steady pace through most of... Read more
Just who is this crazy redhead, anyway?

I've added a bunch of new Sparkfriends lately, and some of you may or may not know me; Most people find me through my posts in the forum. You can read my Sparkpage, and get a pretty good overview, but who am I, really? Obviously, I'm... Read more
Settling into our new routine... finally.
Tuesday, August 14, 2012      8 comments

Day two of back-to-school is already proving to be better, although my husband is proving to be a bigger obstacle than I had anticipated. See, as some of you already know, he's being forced to wean off his meds. This has all kinds of unple... Read more
First day of school: Mommy cut loose.
Monday, August 13, 2012      8 comments

Went a little overboard. The girls went to school today, and Papa and I had the whole house to ourselves for the first time in six years. Soooo we went out to eat. Three times. LOL. Burger King for breakfast. Sonny's BBQ for lunch. Chines... Read more

I found my helmet! So today I went for a ride, and it was incredible. The weather was spectacular, nice and cool at 85 with a cool breeze. I rode for about an hour, and in the process, discovered a writing partner! See, I've lived in this ... Read more
Rain, rain, go away...

Actually, don't. Stay. We need you! It's been so nice to have afternoon thunderstorms, even though they've been interfering with my ability to ride my bike. Another thing interfering with my bike rides: I can't find my helmet! I'm not comf... Read more
Living in poverty
Friday, August 10, 2012      14 comments

This isn't exactly a secret, though I don't really talk about it a lot. There's a lot of prejudice against the poor, especially those of us who aren't lucky enough to be able to support themselves 100%. You get so much slack from people over ev... Read more
What IS it with men named Chris?
Thursday, August 09, 2012      9 comments

I just realized a weird bit of syncronicity in my life. Men named Chris for some reason have a profound, life-changing effect on my life. No, my husband is not a Chris. :) But I mean this in a more indirect, people-named-Chris keep doing ... Read more
School's about to start
Wednesday, August 08, 2012      7 comments

Feeling a little sad, but very happy. Next Monday, school starts, and my big girl starts 1st grade, and my baby starts pre-k. I'm extra thrilled that my youngest has the same preschool teacher as my oldest did. She is an amazing lady, and really... Read more
