I am reading a new diet book, which is really resonating with me. I'll blog on some of its principles later but I'm still digesting it. (ha ha) But I was wondering last night WHY I even needed a new diet book? I'm such a firm believer in... Read more
I did It AND Had a Great Day!
Tuesday, March 22, 2011      7 comments

Now I know why these "Roadfood" books and "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" shows exist. You would not only pass -- but RACE right by these places if you you didn't know they were recommended by "experts"! I know I'm probably undoing years of work... Read more

TC and I are going on a big shopping outing today. AND we are going to a barbeque place and a pie shoppe that are written up in all the "roadfood" type books. We've wanted to go to this small town for years to try these two places. T... Read more

I had a wonderful day yesterday, it was super-productive on all fronts. I ate well, exercised, and felt pleased by a day well used even though I barely got out of the house. I will be teaching a new class online this summer and I completed one... Read more
Beck's Day 1: Record the Advantages of Losing Weight
Friday, March 11, 2011      9 comments

Lots of us are in various stages of using the Beck Diet Solution, and I've had great success with it in the past so I know it works. The problem is, as with any plan, is finding the motivation to STAY ON IT. But I'm not going to be discour... Read more
Surgery went well

So we were there at 6:00 am, and home by 11:00 am! Really!! Thanks for all the thoughts & prayers; everything went great. After he was given the "relaxing medicine" in his IV, he turned to a nurse and slurred, "I like being around a... Read more
Surgery Tomorrow
Wednesday, March 09, 2011      7 comments

This week has been impossible. Being away last weekend meant I didn't get anything graded for my online classes. So I started Monday behind! I hate that. Tomorrow TC is having hernia repair surgery. Yeah, we have to be at the hospit... Read more
Had a blast at the half
Tuesday, March 08, 2011      11 comments

Honestly, if you've never participated in a race you MUST. They are soooo much fun! After months of dodging traffic when we walk on the road, we finally got to walk in the middle of the street with actual policemen stopping traffic so we n... Read more
Getting Ready for the Half

....marathon, that is! We love our travel trailer and use it whenever we can. Today we are getting it ready & packed for the weekend in Little Rock (which is silly -- LR is a mere hour away!) TC will pick me up from school tomorrow ... Read more
I've got a parole date!!
Tuesday, March 01, 2011      12 comments

Geez, maybe not a good title for the Sparkers who don't really know me, but it's truly how I feel! I am quitting my job after this semester ends (May 14). My bosses and my two closest coworkers know but that's all. I don't want it to be pu... Read more
Stating Your Intentions

Ha! Nancy- and I have a weird thing going on -- last week she posted on her status that she was going to redo her menu, I told her I was looking forward to seeing it, and she wrote a blog about how I was keeping her accountable! That wasn't my... Read more
De-Funkified
Friday, February 25, 2011      9 comments

Thanks Watermellon, for my new word! Love it. I've had a really good week but NOT an overly obsessive week, as is my wont. I did some pretty intensive exercise each day this week, and I'm giving myself credit for that! I ate well but... Read more
Determined

Thanks for all the support and positive comments on my blog yesterday! DEFUNKING -- love that word -- is not easy but NECESSARY. How could we ever move forward in any area of our lives if we always just made the choice to stay stuck? ... Read more
Checking In
Tuesday, February 22, 2011      5 comments

I've been in a slump lately so have not blogged. That's very counter-productive so I need to stop that. Some of it is economy related -- I'm worried about my Spark friend ID_Vandal who got laid off from his job, and I'm also worried about some... Read more
What a day
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      4 comments

I was ready to throw a fit about having to give up MY class in order to take on another. I was absolutely ready to quit, but it didn't come to that. Cooler heads prevailed and a coworker will take the class in question, and I will just work wi... Read more
