What a Crazy Surprise - Day 49 of the Diva's Re-Spark
I've been going through a lot. I've been very stressed and very sad. On top of bi-polar, I'm dealing with intense roommate issues. We argue constantly and there's so much anger/resentment going on between us for various reasons. Despite it all, ... Read more
Back to Shakin' That Thang - Day 20 of the Diva's Re-Spark
Zumba was so great last night! I was so apprehensive (especially after not shakin' my thang for 2 years other than musicals), but soon I was getting the hang of it all over again. My body was wiped after only the first song, but I kept going and... Read more
Bi-Polar Depression Sucks (Duh) - Day 19 of the Diva's Re-Spark
Well, I gained 1.5lbs in the last week and I already know why: I didn't track AT ALL. Between my bi-polar, crappy food and the weather which affects me more than I thought, it was not a good week eating wise. I notice that the more I track, the ... Read more
Denied - Day 12 of the Diva's Re-Spark
Well, I didn't get the 3rd apartment that I applied for. I offered the management company so much information, so much paperwork and still, no dice. I simply don't make enough and my credit is only "fair". I've done my very best to do what I nee... Read more
Trying to Stay Positive - Day 6 of the Diva's Re-Spark
So, I lost 2lbs! Yay! I'm not sure how I managed it, but I'm sure it was because I was a lot more active this weekend. I've been in the theatre pretty much all weekend and did A LOT of walking around, lifting things and had a ... Read more
Feeling Very Down - Day 2 of the Diva's Re-Spark
As I expected, I went over my allowed calorie limit yesterday. I've been eating what I want, when I want and how much I want for the past year or so, so it makes sense that I would feel like I'm "starving" when I stopped at a certain number. It'... Read more

Check them out on my... Read more
Why Don’t I Care?
I am having such a hard time SparkFriends. Tracking my food is frustrating at best and with everything going on in my life, I’m having a hard time staying above water. While I am keeping my healthy habits for the most part, I just don’t have the... Read more

He lives by mending.
The grace of God is glue. - Eugene O' Neill
Without going into a long paragraph about my story, I’m starting over from scratch. Like so many, I’ve been on this journey for over 4 years having ... Read more

What’s Up With MissB8604? – Weeks 174 & 175
Nutrition: Not good, but not because of depression. I've been eating what I want and haven't been paying attention to my portions. I've relaxed a bit too much and need to reel it in quite a bit. My veggie intake has been terrible as well, so tha... Read more
What’s Up With MissB8604? – Week 173
Nutrition: Not good at all. I was going through a bout of depression Saturday through Wednesday which was of course, bingetown. Scones, ice cream, chips, you name it. Terrible stuff. My body was NOT happy and got me good yesterday.
Water I... Read more
