Emotional Eating
Saturday, November 03, 2012      5 comments

If you read my blog, you know I had a rough week. I had a heavyweight title bout with candy, and candy won. For four consecutive days I was having these mini chocolate binges. I've been fine about my eating otherwise, not feeling at all deprived... Read more
Tricky Treats

Today the goblins and ghoulies were not knocking on my door, but my inner goblin took over for a while. I had a, shall we say, candy malfunction? And it wasn't even just today. I've had two sorta awful days, foodwise. Yesterday I bought one... Read more
Me and My Knee
Thursday, October 25, 2012      3 comments

Yesterday my knee was hurting big time. I had done some step aerobics on Tuesday and I felt something go wrong while I was doing it. It hurt in the wrong way and I knew bad things were coming. I took some ibuprofen before bed, but when I woke up... Read more
Oh Nuts

Not one of my best days. Woke up achy from the ab crunches yesterday and generally being old. Ate a piece of my pizza for lunch (which was wonderful but I ate two pieces yesterday, so this was not a good choice). And then because I still felt hu... Read more

I was feeling meh about exercising today, and it's so easy to talk oneself out of moving one's body, isn't i? But I always come to SparkPeople and log on, read the features, cruise a few blogs. Of course I track daily, and tracking is qui... Read more
Shut Up Brain!
Monday, October 15, 2012      5 comments

My brain is a racer. It's probably the only thing about me that has raced until recently. I've been told I have a great imagination. That's a wonderful thing for a writer, but when I worry, not so much. I'm always thinking, thinking, thinking ab... Read more
Me and My Metaphor
Saturday, October 06, 2012      4 comments

I'm a writer, primarily of poetry, so you know I love a good metaphor. And metaphors abound in every culture. Two popular ones are falling off the wagon and getting back on the horse. Haven't we all done both? Especially here? Well I fell o... Read more

My one-month "sparkiversary" just passed. And what have I learned? 1, Spark People is a huge font of information. That is good but also challenging. Good, because there are tools and report generators galore. Challenging, because I am co... Read more

This past week was a hard one for me. September 7th is the anniversary of my sister's death. She was murdered when I was 17 and she just 21. It was a horrible experience, and even though it has been a very long time since I lost her, I kno... Read more
The Importance of Being Labeled
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      6 comments

The other night I made a meatloaf for dinner. It wasn't the healthiest recipe because I used ground beef, not even lean ground beef, but I am rather new to this healthier lifestyle and I had it in the freezer and beef is too expensive for me to ... Read more
Welcome To Me
Sunday, September 02, 2012      5 comments

I feel like a drop of water that has fallen into the ocean that is SparkPeople. I know. I talk this way all the time and I can't help it. I'm a poet and a writer, obsessed with words really. I always seem to see everything in images and me... Read more
