So despite all the stress that I'm under due to my impending unemployment AND the fact that I am crazy-busy trying to find another job, I lost 3 lbs this week. This makes me very happy. Not only that I lost weight...but also that I stuck t... Read more

Howdy, SparkFriends! Can anyone tell me if drinking water w/Crystal Light (which I water down with about 1 extra cup of water for more mileage) counts as drinking water? I sure hope so - it's the only way I can get it all in. In o... Read more

Okay...needed a laugh this morning, and DDOORN's latest blog gave me a bit of inspiration. For many years, I was an avid Sims player. And I have to say that some of the fitness bits they have in The Sims are pretty hilarious: These Yo... Read more

Friday, March 05, 2010 13 comments
So last night, in an effort to sort of find some inner peace about this ghastly layoff situation, I decided to contemplate the question of "What's the worst that could happen?" I figured, if I looked 'the worst that could happen' squarely... Read more

Thanks, everyone, for being so supportive during this time. It's a tough prospect to be facing the job market right now, and I was kind of embarrassed to post that I'd been laid off...and as a result, it was tough to even WRITE that blog the ot... Read more

Well, this week I have not been around very much. No, I didn't go anti-social. But I did finally get laid off on Monday in IBM's latest round of job cuts in the US. I was not alone - about 2,500 others were laid off with me on Monday.... Read more

Friday, February 26, 2010 9 comments
Did this workout for the first time today. I've only done Start It Up! once, and that was a few weeks ago, but it was pretty easy so I decided to not repeat it and go directly to Ramp It Up! Good decision, because this was a good workout ... Read more

Wednesday, February 24, 2010 7 comments
Well, as long as it stays this way (in an overall downward trend), I'm okay with it. But get a load of these numbers from the past few weeks weigh-ins. All weigh-ins were done on the same scale at Weight Watchers, wearing the same clothes (sam... Read more

Friday, February 19, 2010 8 comments
Okay...I did Turbo Jam tonight for the first time (the Learn & Burn segment). I did it after my Power 90 workout, so my upper body muscles in particular were a bit weak before I even started....but the bottom line is that this is going to be re... Read more
