Staying in touch is hard!
"Bless me SparkPeople, for I have sinned. It has been 3 weeks since my last blog."
I wish I could say that it's been smooth sailing, but it has not. I went through another week of ... I'll call it... inappropriate eating. Not wanting to coo... Read more
Motivation in the gutter
Well. Last week was kind of a bust. It was so frigid out that I didn't get more than 5K steps in most days. I didn't bother tracking my food, because I ate like crap, just like I did the week before.
It was out of control bad. Let's just s... Read more

Resolutions for 2018
Yikes. It's been forever and a day since I've blogged. I've been around, lurking and tracking since late spring, but not taking advantage of the social parts of Spark.
- I have become such an introvert (or maybe I've re... Read more
I need a hug
I've really lost my spunk, my drive and my will. I have been depressed for months - as in - on meds, using a happy lamp, and still working very hard to get out of bed in the morning. I find myself asking "what's the point" a whole lot.
So... Read more
Sluggish and thinking about time
Oh my, this is a hard one. Soooo sluggish today. Sleep last night was horrible. I kept waking up coughing (allergy season) needing to pee (drank the last three cups of wa... Read more
Not a very good end to my week. Stress and PMS caught up with me on Thursday and Friday. I didn't track, and I didn't eat very well. Sweets. Not even ones that are worth the calories - not an indulgence, not even a treat. Just sugar. I'm putting... Read more
Update to Reckless Morning
As I thought, I pretty much didn't get hungry again until around dinner time. Lucky me! I must have had enough protein to protect me from the sugar crash.
I knew that to get my protein for the day, I was going to have to eat a bunch of it f... Read more
It is 10:38 a.m. and I have 19-365 calories left for the day. At least that includes 31 grams of protein... but...er, 200 carbs.
Not sure what snapped this morning, but I just wasn't present. I'm a bit stressed, trying to relax.. and not p... Read more
Lately, I’ve noticed the ads on Spark are becoming intrusive and inappropriate. Ads for diet fasts, “metabolic boost” bars, Snickers, fast food… “You can lose weight with this one ridiculous trick…”
I know Spark needs to make money – but th... Read more
No mistakes today
Preach! I have made every mistake in the book when it comes to taking care of myself. I repeat these "mistakes" over and over again. But the quote above makes a very go... Read more
Sobering morning leads to serene day.
My weigh-in day is Saturday. For the first time in a long time, I stepped on the scale and had a sobering experience. I knew I had gained a lot of weight back, but I didn't realize just how much. I now understand what's wrong with my knee. I'm m... Read more
When opportunity strikes...
For the first time since early this summer I embraced the opportunity of a new day. Here's how I made great use of today:
1. I get to work from home on Fridays now. ... Read more
Yup. That's pretty much been my life this year. Right now, I'm back at "do." I've actually been back tracking for a week, but I left blogging and enjoying the other deli... Read more

I am having some serious commitment issues
Commitment to friends, family, work, and myself has all gone to the wayside. I’m all about being satisfied right NOW, while, of course, not really being satisfied at all.
The past six weeks have seen me reverting to old ways of eating and n... Read more
