Day 11 is done
Tuesday, January 14, 2014      6 comments

I took BADL's advice from yesterday and I wore the purple dress with the pink sweater. I also brought the lovely peanut butter bark in to the office and I left it in the Food/Fiscal Department. Let them get fat. I must confess, I ate a very smal... Read more
This Is What Happens When My Personalities Start Arguing With Each Other
Monday, January 13, 2014      14 comments

This mental toughness thing is exhausting. I'm always proving myself to myself. This was definitely a day to remember that I was forming new habits. I want to be tougher. I want to *really* hold myself accountable. It's so easy for me to stop pu... Read more
Survived the Family Meal w00t! WooT!
Sunday, January 12, 2014      9 comments

Someone made a comment on my page, blog, somewhere that sometimes we have roles in our families and when we try to break out of that role, there is push back. For her, it was when she was no longer "the fat one" in the family. Holy smokes! The l... Read more

Thank you for encouraging to not decapitate my husband or to commit mayhem. I did a few abs exercises and I fumed through all of it. Just like a little kid: I don't wanna! I hate this! It's stupid! By the time Dan made it home from the gym ... Read more

My poor husband. He came pretty close to being decapitated. I don't know why, but I was crazy, cranky hungry when I left work. In fact, I didn't stay late because I was hungry. Irrational hungry. I had to run errands and I stayed away from snack... Read more

Mental Toughness is holding strong so far. I knew I had a meeting after work tonight. I planned for potentially having richer food than expected and ate fewer calories during the day. When the meeting arrived, I was able to enjoy a roast beef wr... Read more

Day 4 is in the bag. The work event was wonderful. I was so busy meeting and greeting that I never got near the sweets. By the time I had time, I just wanted coffee and there wasn't any! I ate what was in my lunch bag. After work, I biked 12 mil... Read more

Hey Sparkaroonies. I'm whipped. I was up and out of the house very early this morning for work. I was beaten by Lenny right after work, then I waited for the Hubster to finish his run, so I didn't get home until 9pm. I still have to get ready fo... Read more

WATERMELLEN and ONEKIDSMOM had me almost convinced to try Steve Siebold's Fat Loser program. I'd already started reading the free e-book. It's free. Why not? His schtick is mental toughness, which I feel I need to make additional progress in my ... Read more
Did a Personal Sprint Tri at the Y
Friday, January 03, 2014      9 comments

OMG, Sparkers. I handed my own butt to me today. The Hubster wanted to go to the Y. I would have preferred staying snuggled in bed. We got a foot of snow and temperatures in the very low single digits. But we went out to the Y. I even broug... Read more

I could have saved this for another day, but i haven't. I haven't posted a foodie picture in weeks. I know my fans are disappointed in me, so to try to make up a little bit, not only will I post a picture, but I will also include the recipe... Read more
Bad A$$ not a Fat A$$
Thursday, January 02, 2014      10 comments

One of my goals for next year is to do a pull up because I want to be a bad-ass. My friend VIXSTERLU paid me the compliment by saying I was alway a bad ass. It made me laugh and I'd like to think I was, but I wasn't. At least not in2013. Or at l... Read more
Rock Your Resolution
Wednesday, January 01, 2014      11 comments

Thank you, everyone, for your comments on my last blog on making resolutions. I think the general advice of goals work better than resolutions was dead on and I'm glad you pushed back on me. I know I don't do well with resolutions, so why preten... Read more
