Summer Homeschooling
Monday, July 06, 2020      6 comments

Welcome to day 1 of ESY homeschooling! One of my twins was enrolled in Pre-K for kids with special needs (the official name is "Disabled Pre-K" - don't get me started), but then the world fell apart and after going through 2 months of meet... Read more

So, here's what's up. Work & homelife if overwhelming... but also, just one big blurred thing. Anywho, I started back up on SP yesterday, and here's what I did well: Tracked food & stayed in range Blogged Increased my water intake... Read more
Still kicking
Wednesday, July 01, 2020      2 comments

Just a note - I'm still kicking. Just back into tracking. At the start of social distancing in March, I was actually down 5lbs, but then I don't know exactly what happened and I blew past that 5 and added 10 more. Ok, I know what happene... Read more
New Spark Team - rebranding Cooking Light Team
Tuesday, February 11, 2020      2 comments

I am currently one of the leaders of a spark team for fans of Cooking Light Magazine. Attendance on the team page dwindled over the years, and the magazine itself has now gone out of print. I thought I'd keep the page to discuss old recipes, b... Read more
Healthy Workplace
Monday, February 10, 2020      4 comments

I really do work for a good organization - especially when it comes to encouraging healthy habits for its employees. For years we've had a small conference room with "tread desks" - treadmills that allow you to walk at a slow pace while working... Read more
The Flu, Teeny Weinies & Refridgerated Dough
Tuesday, January 28, 2020      4 comments

The flu has returned to my house. I swear, wasn't it less than a month ago that my daughter got the flu? Now it's her twin brother. At least it seems to be mild for the flu - but he's got another double ear infection, and we're still waiting ... Read more
Le weekend
Monday, January 13, 2020      2 comments

So, I forgot to log this weekend - what else is new? It was just a crazed 2 days, and my phone is really on its last legs, so I don't have the sparkpeople app anymore - which just makes it harder to remember to log if I'm not sitting in front o... Read more
Day 4 and Female Bloat
Thursday, January 09, 2020      4 comments

Day 4: I can't say that I've made much progress yet, but I've logged on for 4 straight days, and logged calories, even if I haven't been meeting my goals. Making a habit of logging in is progress, however small, so I'm just going to focus on th... Read more
Back Again, Bigger than Ever
Monday, January 06, 2020      4 comments

I'm back at SparkPeople again, and I'm at the highest weight I've ever been (and that includes that one time, 5 years ago, when I was pregnant with twins). Anywho, my weight gain in the past 2 years has been pretty off the charts - I'm struggl... Read more

Calories Never Quite Match the tracker - What's up with that?
Monday, April 01, 2019      4 comments

Does this happen to anyone (everyone?) else too? When I look up packaged foods in the food tracker, more often than not, the nutrition info in the SP tracker does NOT match the nutrition info on the food label. What's up with that? At fir... Read more
Progress is slow, but still progress
Thursday, January 10, 2019      5 comments

It's been such a long time since I"ve logged on to sparkpeople for 5 days in a row. It's a bit astonishing how apathetic I've been about my own health, but I'm feeling pretty optimistic about the little steps I've taken so far. One of the... Read more
I Have the Power
Tuesday, January 08, 2019      4 comments

Today, I'm going to channel my inner HeMan, and remind myself that I have the power. The power to eat within my goals, the power to comit to at least 10 minutes of fitness, the power to focus at work to get results that I'm proud of, and the po... Read more
Cooking Light Farewell Issue: or WTF?!? Noooooo!!!!
Tuesday, November 27, 2018      3 comments

I just posted the following on the message boards of the Cooking Light Magazine Fans community on SparkPeople, but as that group's been rather inactive, and I'm looking for other CL fans to commiserate with over the end of a lovely era, I'm post... Read more
Facebook tells me Halloween with 3 yr olds is fun. Facebook is lying.
Thursday, November 01, 2018      6 comments

Halloween is a fun day to check out your Facebook news feed. It's full of adorable little ones, all dressed up as their favorite characters. They are excited to put on costumes, and excited to celebrate the day. And, wouldn't you know it, the... Read more
