My 6 year old's salad!
As I promised yesterday, I've taken pictures of the salad my daughter came up with. As it turns out, there were a LOT of pictures; rather than upload all of them here (which takes FOREVER) I'll upload just one for you as a teaser, and redirect y... Read more
From the mouths of babes
Today my six year old had a FANTASTIC idea for a dish. I got a spiral slicer a while back, and I've throughly enjoyed it. It's a great alternative to (or enhancement for) pasta. Run a freshly peeled zucchini through it, and you have a light, fil... Read more
Crazy work day
Make that a crazy work week. Been up to my eyeballs. Also did 6 loads of laundry and cooked dinner.
Have had no time to breathe.
Have been writing, though. That feels good.
Peace out.... Read more
It's been a while since I started this journey. It's been a slow journey, one that is on a par with the slowest loser. One year, 23 pounds. (Was 25, but I gained them back.)
I have to remind myself of why I'm on this journey, though.

When self control is out of control
So the biggest problem I have is eating. I'm good at exercising; I LIKE to exercise! Just now, for example, rather than give in to the fridge-rooting snack attack, I went for... Read more
I don't like Saturdays
I've decided I don't like Saturdays. I guess that means that I'm not a kid anymore, huh? Used to be my favorite day of the week!
For starters, the girls are home from school, which means they're up my butt all day, and bored out of their ... Read more
1 Year Sparkiversary
Okay, so technically I joined Sparkpeople on July 17, 2010. I followed an email from Mypoints to get 10 points for signing up. I poked around, even posted a little, but gradually got bored after a month or so and wandered off to other internet ... Read more
I counted them. 15 cheerios, floating around in my bowl. I spooned them up about five at a time, and dropped them in the trash. Then, I poured the last 1/4 of a cup of mi... Read more
A post today in the Sparkpeople forums started me down this path of thinking, as so many of my blogs often do.
Most, if not all of us, have loved ones who are not he... Read more
Improving faster than I expected!
So my recovery from sedentarianism has been faster than I had originally anticipated. Yesterday's boot camp left my back a little sore, but nothing major, and I didn't even feel compelled to take an ibuprofen. I wasn't feeling yoga this morning,... Read more
I've had the pleasure of working with a number of trainers through my group classes. Some of those sessions have amounted to personal training sessions, since I was the only one.
I mesh better with certain personalities of trainers. I do... Read more
What's YOUR excuse?
Excuses. We all have them. Come on, even if you're in a great place in your life *now*, you made them in the past.
My most common excuse for not exercising is simply "I'll finish this and go in just a minute."
I will... Read more
Just a quickie tonight
Quick day roundup tonight. I'm pooped!
It's been an incredibly busy day. I've been working overtime at work with the beta test. Husband had a car show with his lodge that he had to take care of. I took the opportunity to bash some order in... Read more
SO unbelievably sore
So yesterday at boot camp, our trainer really put us through the wringer. First, he told us to put 10 lb weights on our barbells. (Most of us do 7 1/2 or smaller, normally. Everyone in there was used to doing more than 5.)
Then we went into... Read more

ADHD: Please, no.
Soo. It's time to get my daughter evaluated for the dreaded A word.
I've been waiting for it, but protests from my husband have really kept me from pushing too hard for it, even though last fall my 6 year old's Kindergarten tea... Read more
