This year has been pretty amazing. I've discovered a lot about myself and my relationship with food. It's an ongoing process. I've also been working on my life. I hired a life coach and we are working to develop the plan for the next chap... Read more
Golf and me
Tuesday, July 05, 2011      3 comments

I am having a love affair with the game of golf. It intrigues me, it makes me frustrated, but I can't stop thinking about it. I actually think about golf before I go to bed at night. While I'm at work I think about ways to improve my practice... Read more
I survived another lay-off
Monday, June 13, 2011      1 comments

My work is becoming more stressful than I thought it would be. This morning we had the fourth lay-off in just 6 months and we lost some good people. It's because sales aren't as good as predicted by the wildly optimistic marketing guys a few y... Read more

I am starting to make friends again. It's been awhile since I've actually had any friends. I don't know if it's because they were turned off by my husband or if it's because I pushed people away because I didn't want them to know how bad my ma... Read more
I left

As discussed in my most recent blog, I left my marriage. I moved out and I now have a beautiful, quiet apartment without much furniture. But I am sort of free from the control freak husband. It feels great. My apartment building has a gym so... Read more

Since I took such a long break from spark, I felt a need to give a small update on what I've been doing. A lot of this started because of spark, and I am thankful for that. So, I was doing my spark diet last year and losing weight and fe... Read more

It's been a few months since I checked in here. And I must admit I've not been following my spark plans over the summer. So now, I'm deciding it's time to get back on track. I also need to admit that I gained about 5 pounds while not being... Read more

I just found the GOYAAM team thanks to a fellow sparker, and here is my list of GOYAAM goals for the month of June. 1. I will eat healthy food this month, and include at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. 2. I wi... Read more
did not meet the birthday goal
Thursday, June 03, 2010      6 comments

I guess I knew weeks ago that I was not going to meet the goal weight I had set for myself. Today is my 50th birthday, and I'm about half way there. Although I'm a bit disappointed with myself for not accomplishing what I set out to do, I can'... Read more

SonomaKate was my fat name. My real name is Kathy. My mom and dad saw the movie Kathy O' some time before I was born. Apparently my dad thought that Kathy in th... Read more

When I started out with SparkPeople, I set some pretty ambitious goals for myself. I was going to weigh 142 by my 50th birthday, which is this coming Thursday. Obviously, I am not going to hit that goal. For the past few weeks, I think that f... Read more

Let's just say that work is not always as nice as you think it is. I thought the place where I am currently working was too small for politics to get in the way of getting the job done. I just found out that I am getting a new boss and that my... Read more
swimsuit shopping
Saturday, May 15, 2010      1 comments

This morning I took my daughter swimsuit shopping. Since trying on swimsuits has traditionally been at the bottom of my list of things I like to do, I typically avoid looking for one for myself and only buy one if I absolutely need one. But... Read more
starting over with blogs
Sunday, May 09, 2010      0 comments

I did a little housecleaning last week. Well, actually, I guess you'd call it blog-cleaning. I decided that the negativity of my blogs past was not really helping me out. While I am working on putting the past behind me and living in the pres... Read more
