Reflection
Tuesday, May 22, 2012      5 comments

Today is a big deal for me. Today I have been on SparkPeople a year and a half. Say it with me, people- yay! I may not be quite where I want to be right now- I got so stressed out with work I started taking it out on my body, and gained w... Read more
Proud
Sunday, May 20, 2012      7 comments

I'm having a great day today so far! I did 90 minutes of the Ultimate Tae Bo workout. I've never done that much at one time before. It's more than twice my usual 40 minute workout! I took the dog on a very short, lame walk, and I ate health... Read more
Attitude
Thursday, May 17, 2012      4 comments

I think I am normally a mild mannered, sweet person. However, events in the past few days are making me a bit snarky. Yesterday I worked 11 hours at the school and library. I got home and was planning an early night when the grocery store ... Read more
Whine
Tuesday, May 15, 2012      4 comments

Please ignore this blog. I am a whiney, whiney baby today. My ears are ringing SO loudly. It is insane. For any who don't know, this is a medical condition called tinnitus- and there is no cure. My ears ring every day, nonstop, but today it is ... Read more
Happy Mother's Day!
Sunday, May 13, 2012      6 comments

Happy Mother's Day to all the Sparkmoms out there. My mom is actually out of town this weekend, so no big celebration here. I gave Mom a card on Friday. I pushed my siblings into behaving decently. I reminded my sister in South Korea on... Read more
Yay Mom!
Thursday, April 26, 2012      7 comments

My work schedule continues to be hectic, with virtually no me time. Today, my mom took over my morning job, so I could sleep in and have the whole morning to myself until work at 1 PM. I slept until 8:30 AM. That might not sound like sleep... Read more
Health Food Can Be Perilous to Your Health
Sunday, April 22, 2012      6 comments

Okay, I love my mom. I appreciate her efforts to make healthy food, as I did not as a kid. But French toast made with whole wheat bread and topped with applesauce can only be described as nasty. She made enough to last the whole week, and ... Read more
Letter to Self
Monday, April 16, 2012      8 comments

Dear Self, This week you are scheduled to work 70 hours. When you get a schedule like this, I know your first thought is "oooh, money!" But there are important things you forget. Or not so much forget as totally block from your memory. I ... Read more
Sweet Progress
Friday, April 13, 2012      7 comments

My sweets cravings have subsided greatly. I can look at sweets now without wanting to eat it all. I did well on sweets yesterday, despite copious free time, and I walked five miles. Foe the "Tame your SweetTooth" challenge, I am supposed ... Read more
Just a Little Sleepy
Thursday, April 12, 2012      5 comments

Today, after my morning job, I had the rest of the day off. I had grand plans. I was either going to roller blade or do Zumba for at least an hour, then go on a long walk. But first, I was just going to take a little nap. I laid down a... Read more
Feeling good!
Tuesday, April 10, 2012      5 comments

I did an hour of Tae Bo today, and when I got off work at 9 PM, I felt so good I ran around the block. Boo-yah! I already burnt all my calories for the week! Not that I'm going to sit on my bum the rest of the time. Next week is going ... Read more
Happy Easter!
Monday, April 09, 2012      2 comments

I hope everyone had a happy Easter! I had a good one. I did have to work, but I worked 7-11 PM, so at least I got to spend most of the day with my family. My mom, my dad and I had breakfast together, then we went for a walk. I found three... Read more
Addiction
Wednesday, April 04, 2012      7 comments

Okay, I admit it. I am addicted to sugar. I joined the "Tame your Sweet Tooth Challenge" two days ago. I really need to do something about my out-of-control sugar consumption. Usually, I have two modes with sugar consumption- either i... Read more
Summer is here!
Monday, April 02, 2012      1 comments

Yes, I know, not really. But it feels like it. It is supposedly in the 80s outside, but it feels warmer. Today I went rollerblading at Shelby Farms! I have not been rollerblading since fall, ad I wanted to shake up my routine a bit. Hoo b... Read more
I am a Tough Pirate Chick
Sunday, April 01, 2012      3 comments

I wanted to avoid my house this weekend... long story. Anyway, I was working all day Saturday, which worked out well, and this morning I visited a library co-worker at her house. The summer reading program at our library is pirate themed t... Read more
