An update on my journey
Sunday, July 12, 2015      3 comments

I haven't been on spark's full website for a couple of months now so I thought, maybe, some of you might like to know what's going on in my life....good, bad and ugly. GOOD- I have been using the sparkpeople app so I get my log-in points an... Read more
Looking ahead to a perilous weekend
Friday, May 22, 2015      3 comments

Today was a day off for me so I took a long walk. It felt really good to be moving and to have all the time in the world to do so. The only downside was thinking about this weekend and the "danger" I'm going to be in at work. I knew when I got h... Read more
Exhaustion leads to re-evaluating some goals
Sunday, May 03, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday after work I was simply too tired to move or even think. My ankle was swollen to 3-4 times its normal size, my feet were throbbing, my calf muscles were seizing and my knees rebelled at climbing the stairs to go to bed. (I fell up the ... Read more
Such pretty colors
Wednesday, April 22, 2015      5 comments

I love spring. Watching nature come back to life always amazes me. Spring is a little late this year but there are finally lots of colors to see. It's almost as if the trees and plants have realized that it is mid to late April and they have blo... Read more
Bouncing around
Thursday, April 16, 2015      7 comments

My journey has been interesting so far. Sometimes all goes well and sometimes it doesn't. I feel like I'm bouncing around instead of making steady progress but I can see that I am moving forward even if the path has been a little crooked. I... Read more
Week 1 of 5% challenge
Friday, April 10, 2015      4 comments

Tomorrow is weigh-in day for the challenge and I'm not sure I'm looking forward to it. That seems strange to me considering I managed to exercise for at least 10 minutes every day and I drank 8 or more cups of water everyday. What I didn't do wa... Read more
Those darn jelly beans

Signs of Spring at last
Thursday, April 02, 2015      4 comments

I was beginning to think Spring would never get here. Don't get me wrong, I actually love winter BUT this cold has stuck around much too long. On my walk to the bus stop I noticed both purple and yellow crocuses blooming in a neighbors yard. I a... Read more
Some things I've noticed
Monday, March 09, 2015      3 comments

Lately I've noticed some small improvements on my journey and elsewhere in my life. They've kind of snuck up on me and, each time, I've stopped to wonder at the timing. For example, I work with a really difficult co-worker who tries my pati... Read more
The let down is hard
Wednesday, February 25, 2015      2 comments

I have always found it hard to rely on others because I feel like they always let me down. My application for graduate school has not been an exception. I asked the 3 people I felt would give me the best recommendation and would do it in a timel... Read more
A small blog
Sunday, February 15, 2015      4 comments

OMG! It's sooo cold outside. Good thing I have exercise DVDs and space to do them. Granted, I don't always exercise for long but I'm starting a 10-minute a day streak and today was day one. I simply turned on the music and started dancing; the n... Read more
More good habits
Tuesday, February 10, 2015      5 comments

I've had to re-adjust my thinking and my focus on this journey to be healthier. Even stating it that way is different for me. When I started this journey 2 years ago, I did it simply to lose weight. I was like many who started off well and then ... Read more
Work and boredom
Wednesday, January 07, 2015      4 comments

I don't know how to handle boredom without eating my way out of it. Since I have finished school for the time being, I don't have that work to do. And my job has entered its winter hours so my schedule has been cut way back. (And I still wonder ... Read more
Simple admissions
Friday, January 02, 2015      3 comments

I'm not really sure I can explain my absence from sparkpeople without using excuses but, I'm going to try. I'm pretty positive that the simple reason is because I was failing miserably and didn't want to be reminded of it. I fell on the excuse ... Read more
Highest since starting spark
Saturday, September 20, 2014      8 comments

While I'm especially grateful for the start of the 5% challenge, I'm as upset with myself as I've ever been. I weighed in just to see where my starting point is and I'M AT THE HIGHEST WEIGHT I'VE EVER BEEN ON SPARKPEOPLE! That both frightens me ... Read more
