enough of that mess. I. really. want. to. stayonthecouch. But if nothing changes, then nothing changes. That's what people way smarter than me have said. So I've got some stinky workout clothes upstairs. (laundry, my nemesis...) and I'm going to... Read more
NIGHT SHIFT: How do you do it?
Sunday, September 15, 2013      2 comments

My hormones I think are a bit confused. Is is daytime? Should I be hungry? How about I be hungry just in case. And repeat. Any sparkers work the night shift and have some tricks to share about making healthy habits stick?... Read more
Vacation aftermath: I cannot fail unless I quit
Saturday, September 14, 2013      1 comments

That was a good mantra I borrowed from another sparker. And I'm using it today. I went on vacation... my old nemesis. And, no great surprise here, came back with all the weight back that I'd lost since returning to spark. 10lbs in a week! First ... Read more
The most ridiculous day to log food
Wednesday, September 04, 2013      0 comments

is today. I made a Korean dinner with lots of banchan (little side dishes) for my hubby's birthday. And I WAY overestimated the amount of food I made. It was ridiculous bordering on grotesque. Three kinds of bbq'd meat, squid, anchovy, kimchee a... Read more
Am I ashamed of eating healthy food?
Tuesday, September 03, 2013      0 comments

At dinner last night I ate way more than I intended to. And my excuse was that I didn't want to stick out. I had brought enough to share of what I planned to eat over to my brother's house. He wanted pizza and when it showed up my stuff wasn't q... Read more
Took my DD swimming
Sunday, September 01, 2013      0 comments

Swam today, tried to tread water as much as possible and swam back and forth as much as I could with my DD. It was fun. Also realized that I'm scared of hiking. I've been putting off planning a trip next week that will probably involve hiking. I... Read more
Hungry at bedtime.

The late night grumble belly is a downer. I've done well today. I logged all my food, got lots of protein and fiber. I even walked. And that's saying something since I was obliged to carry my 4 year old piggyback during said walk. I guess I feel... Read more
I am not done
Friday, August 30, 2013      2 comments

I don't want to give up yet. I've been on-again, off-again with food for so long I don't know if I really believe that I can ever change, but I'm not ready to just keep doing the same insane thing for the rest of my life. You make gourmet waffle... Read more
Me VS Lazy: I won!

How ridiculous is this? I'm sitting outside the gym, in the car, and having a whine-fest about not wanting to go in. ... Read more

The salad from outer space
Friday, October 26, 2012      1 comments

Had a hankering for thanksgiving style turkey and cranberry today. I was out of salad greens (gasp) so I used steamed cabbage and shredded carrot with turkey and some cranberry jelly on top. Not normal for sure. But low fat with lots of fiber a... Read more
Whoops, ate my feelings anyway
Tuesday, October 23, 2012      0 comments

(Disclaimer: I'm grieving a miscarriage so take any ramblings with a pinch of salt) For the past five days I've been relying heavily on one strategy to make it through. I ask myself "what's the healthiest choice I can make right now?" An... Read more
Thin line between life and death
Saturday, October 20, 2012      2 comments

So this is a strange time for me. I'm waiting for my miscarriage to be complete, grieving, and suddenly uncomfortably aware of how close life and death are to each other. I miss my baby, but I'm also so grateful for my husband and daughter. And... Read more
