Yup, time...yet again
Sunday, August 02, 2020      4 comments

Well here I am again. I've said that before, and before, and before. But maybe this time it will stick. I, like many, are struggling during this pandemic. I saw on FB someone posted it's called Covid 19, because 19 will be the average numbe... Read more

Well, I've been down this road before. Several times. Feeling the need for some structure so here I am, back again. The upside is that while I've been gone I think my weight has been pretty stable - so what I've learned does seem to stick with m... Read more
Productive Sunday
Sunday, September 22, 2019      1 comments

Yes, it was a productive Sunday. Perhaps not quite up to my original expectations, but better than yesterday. Was able to get some mending and altering done, that's a big checkmark off the to-do list. Two mile walk with the dog and not only did ... Read more

Although I've not been online for some time, SP has been in my mind and heart. Now that summer is done, I'm settling into a new work routine, and I'm counting down to a big trip to southeast Asia in November. After getting myself back into the 1... Read more

Stepped on the scale today and wanted to cry. Despite my best resolutions of last week of course I'm off track...again! I am confident, however, that if I jump on this issue immediately I can cut my losses - on in this case my gains! My nei... Read more

Looking at my previous paragraph it appears that my updates have marched in-step with the semester changes at school. So, here I am doing the summer shuffle. Lets hope it's a bit more successful than last summer! I'm within 10 pounds of the life... Read more
Bumping up the steps
Thursday, February 21, 2019      2 comments

Whew, in a week and a half my "puppy" will have been part of my family for a year. As she grows and needs more exercise I'm certainly seeing it in my step totals...which is good because I've not reduced my eating but the increase in steps has at... Read more
Just over two months this time

I've been very lax the last several months in keeping track of things online, but I have at least manged to keep my weight in line. Of course my goal for the new year is to be more serious about getting to my goal. Ended the new year the ri... Read more
8 months...
Sunday, October 28, 2018      4 comments

Yup, eight months have gone by the wayside. I see my last blog was in February, shortly before I picked up my new puppy. Wow - she apparently took more time than even I thought she would! Upside is that my exercise has bumped up. I think I ... Read more
February might be going okay
Wednesday, February 07, 2018      2 comments

With a rough start to the new year I think I might be looking at a modicum of success for this subsequent month. A colleague is doing the Whole 30 program in February to try and combat the pain and inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis. Her commi... Read more
What happened to January!

I had such high hopes for a good new year start...but here we are in February and while the scale inched down a wee bit before the holidays it's inched back up. Trying to keep up my spirits in a world where hate reigns supreme isn't easy - but I... Read more
A Week In
Sunday, January 07, 2018      1 comments

It's a week in and not much progress to report. The scale was kinder to me this week than it should have been, but I'm not complaining. I go back to work next week, which is of course a good thing/bad thing. I've loved the unstructured tim... Read more
Welcome to 2018
Monday, January 01, 2018      0 comments

Well, here it is the first day of the new year. I imagine there have been at least 30-35 different New Years Days that I've had the same resolution...lose weight, eat better, get healthier. And I know I'm joined by millions in this resolve... Read more

Okay, just changed my intro to my Sparkpage, and didn't realize I'd used the same phrase about pulling up those big-girl pants! Well, it was a good sentiment then and it's still a good sentiment. The eight months between this entry and the ... Read more
Time to pull up the big girl pants and move on
Sunday, April 09, 2017      5 comments

Okay, the title pretty much sums things up...time to pull up the big girl pants and move on. Although I'm usually a positive person, the past month has been more than a bit of a challenge. But when I step back and look at the big picture, I real... Read more
