I work really hard to stay positive and not put myself down, but that doesn't mean I don't have insecurities. I had a conversation with a spark friend that got me thinking, and I decided to write about it because I am probably not the only one ... Read more

Wow, I can't believe that it's already the end of this round. This has been a kind of crazy round for me. My husband joined me on CAMO, and a good friend of mine joined the BLC on another team, both for the first time. My husband is working o... Read more

Once again, we are reaching the end of a round of the BLC and it's time to think about how I'm not going to lose all the ground I've gained during the round, especially since this is a long break (5 weeks) over the Christmas and New Years holida... Read more

Contrary to what it may seem, I am still around... but I have not had a lot of time to be on line (and sometimes did not have an internet connection even if I had the time) so I have not had a chance to respond to all the wonderful comments I go... Read more

To be honest, I'm expecting a kind of crazy, rough round. We just closed on our first house, where hopefully we will live for a very long time, and we will be gaining possession of the house next month. Then we will not only be moving in, but ... Read more

I realized that I'm still struggling with a lot of the same things I was dealing with last round as far as goals.... too much stress, too tired, and still figuring out this life after grad school thing since I basically graduated and then moving... Read more

This is a bit late as I usually post this as soon as registration starts, but life has been *really* crazy for me lately (and for some reason my internet access annoyingly less than reliable... grr!). BLC 26 will be starting very soon--the ... Read more

We are supposed to create a plan for our break, and I just wrote a post earlier today about how, much as I am a planner in most of my life (to a fault sometimes, LOL. Just ask my husband!) it hasn't worked well for me on the healthy lifestyle f... Read more

Wow, I can't believe that it's already the end of the round. This was supposed to be my relax and focus on myself round... and it couldn't have been farther from the truth. I've been running from one thing to next--moving to a new apartment, f... Read more

I am really struggling with my goals this round, in part because I graduated on Friday so am still figuring out this whole life-after-school thing. I've been working 12-19 hours 7 days a week pretty much non stop except for the holiday break si... Read more
