Well, I'm completely sick of being stuck at 230 lbs. I've been stuck here since June or something, and I am DONE. I have tried a number of things since I hit this plateau, and I'm so discouraged I stopped tracking and everything. Well,... Read more
I almost missed it - ten years ago today...

Ten years ago today, I embarked upon this strange and wonderful journey. It was the day I started my training in Lovaas-style Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). I was one member of a five-person team of therapists who would be coming in to the fa... Read more

For those who didn't know, I left on June 30 for Thunder Bay, to look after my parents' pets while they are in Angola for the month. My youngest brother came to TB yesterday, and I returned home today. I had a lovely day yesterday with my b... Read more

Monday, June 15, 2009      0 comments

I missed posting when I was supposed to due to time constraints. Funny how that is, eh? :) In the movie IQ, Albert Einstein states that time doesn't exist. Well, as smart as A.E. was, I must beg to differ. Time DOES exist, and there is... Read more

Friday, June 12, 2009      2 comments

Yesterday I posted about changing your attitude. I think I forgot to mention that you need to think positively about the whole endeavour! Know that you can take control and keep control! :) I'm big on setting goals. I think it's largely due... Read more
Time Management - Part One: It's About Attitude.
Thursday, June 11, 2009      3 comments

I keep getting compliments on my time management, so I thought I'd start a series here about how to make sure things get done. First of all, I wasn't born with good time management skills. I have ADHD, which means that a lot of this sort of... Read more
One Year Today...
Thursday, May 21, 2009      2 comments

Today is my anniversary for joining SparkPeople. I weighed 248 lbs one year ago; today I weighed in at 235 lbs. That means I've lost 13 lbs. Of course, I gained in there; by September of last year, I was up to 255 lbs. That was when I started ta... Read more

On Sunday, I made pita breads and stuffed them with enchilada filling and baked them. Yummy. Yesterday, I made little apple tarts and strawberry tarts. They are yummy! The pita bread recipe is from The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook, ... Read more

I did it today! I did the video, and 45 minutes of cardio, plus I did my strength training! I ate too much, though. :P Owell, better luck tomorrow, right? I am having a great time right now. My mood is just... good. I am not sure why, but I... Read more
Sweatsuit to Swimsuit?

Meh. Not today, that's for sure. I got knocked on my BUTT with cramps and general ickiness, hot flashes, and other fun things that go with crazy hormones and TOM. :P I'll be fine again tomorrow; just totally sucks that I couldn't start the ... Read more

April is Script Frenzy ( scriptfrenzy.org ). Participants try to write 100 pages of a script in 30 days. Last year, I tried to write a movie; I'm not finished it yet (as in, I haven't made the 100 pages yet). This year, I decided t... Read more

I just wanted to share the icon that I made tonight. Making it was my reward for making my goal for my graphic novel pages today. That's Mal, the captain of the firefly-c... Read more

I made my ranges on my tracker for the most part, I think, except a couple that I know I need to work on anyway. So that's good. I've just been moving slowly all day. I'm feeling mostly good, not depressed anymore, enjoyed my walking and st... Read more

I was a bad girl today. Went over on all of my nutrition goals. :P I've been doing really well with everything else this week (exercise, time management) so maybe something just had to give... will try to do better tomorrow. I'm doing too well i... Read more

Well, I was asked about my relationship with J, so here's the story. I take requests, so if there's anything about me you're curious about, feel free to ask! :D Back a number of years ago, I started attending an Autism/Asperger's MeetUp gro... Read more
