2020 Vision
Tuesday, November 19, 2019      11 comments

"2020 Vision" has been my motto for 2020 for awhile now. I started a Facebook group right after gaining two years in a row in 2017, and barely used it. I just updated my yearly weight measurements on the front of my SparkPage. ... Read more

So I'm pretty sure the last time I cracked open my laptop was in July for that last blog post. I'm happy to say that through some expensive comfy shoes and a committment to stretching my calves, I've succeeded in bringing down my heel pain cons... Read more

I had a few really tough and dark chapters there, and stopped logging in to SparkPeople. *sigh* I'm examining my life again and looking to make healthful choices. There were things I did to cope that weren't very "healthy" but were still ne... Read more
"PLOT TWIST"! *blink blink blink*
Monday, May 28, 2018      14 comments

I appreciate the support from my last blog. It's been exactly a month since I had deadly thoughts. In that time, the company that acquired mine eliminated my position and laid off the accounting manager and me. I have signed an agreement and can... Read more

Check-in: I am working hard to stay positive, after a really difficult low day last week. Wage garnishment, they refuse to negotiate. They don’t put people into debtor’s prison anymore, but it feels like I’m financially imprisoned. I was t... Read more
Foods I decline trick
Friday, February 09, 2018      15 comments

I’ve been taking a photo of “foods I declined,” and it’s been positive so far because after I take the pic and walk away it’s off my mind. It’s like a checkbox is marked and my brain is free to think about what I *DO* want to eat. I thought abou... Read more

Got kinda high on exercise

So it's been awhile since I consistently exercised. This weekend I joined a friend and went back to the gym for the first time in years. And the weekend prior I really enjoyed the treadmill at my apartment. There’s no good reason to skip exercis... Read more
Defensive to "helpful" Non-Spark Friends
Wednesday, January 24, 2018      18 comments

It probably shouldn’t bother me as much as it does… I have been more public about my re-entry into mindful and healthy habits. This has drawn some “support” from non-sparkpeople friends. When SparkPeople give me advice, welcomed or not, I unders... Read more

Monday I was exhausted, the night before I “splurged” on a date at the Chicken Pie Shop (my first time there.) We had chicken pot pie, big fluffy rolls, and French fries with a little slice of lemon pie for dessert. (After eliminating all carbs ... Read more
Can I lose 100 pounds this year?
Thursday, January 18, 2018      15 comments

Reality check: I was crunching my numbers today and made a realization. The max I lost was 140, and now I started this year only 40 pounds down from my original start weight here, 10 years ago. So I regained 100 pounds. That makes the math easy,... Read more
Let Go/ Hair Edition
Tuesday, January 16, 2018      10 comments

2018 is a year for letting go… The first year I was successful with SparkPeople was the first time I donated my hair. I felt happy to release the hair that I used as a cape, to cover, and to hide. At the beginning of 2017 I “wanted” to res... Read more

Tuesday, January 02, 2018      12 comments

2018 is a year for letting go. In 13 days it will be my 10th Sparkversary. Wow. I'm kind of in shock. I remember sitting down for the first time in my life, in 2008 and seriously considering, "What will my life look like in 5 years..... Read more
