As most of you know, I've been really struggling this summer to stay on target when life got incredibly busy. I spent a lot of time away from home--weeks at a time. It's really hard to maintain any kind of lifestyle, let alone a healthy lifest... Read more

It has been, I confess, a pretty rough week as far as healthy choices go. I didn't eat as healthy as I could have. My "exercise" (which I did record in sparks) was mostly walking and working on my balcony gardening--which made my arms and back... Read more

First, I just wanted to clarify something since it came up with multiple people.... I don't really care so much about the word "fat" as the negative connotations that so often go with it. Both SCREWIE and PUFFPASTRY have pointed out to me ... Read more

Awhile back, one of my sparks friends wrote a blog post because she was angry with a thread on sparks where people were writing very negative assumptions they made when they saw overweight people in public. The thread in question has since been... Read more
Finding time for food

A friend of mine keeps telling me that I need to eat more often--every two hours--in order to keep my blood sugar even and to keep my energy and metabolism both up. I know that I need to eat more reliably. I need to eat breakfast every day... Read more

I'm sorry about disappearing without much warning; I went on a last minute writing retreat with a friend of mine to her family's cottage and they don't have internet up there... probably a good thing as there were fewer distractions! One a... Read more
A busy weekend!

I know that I seem to be posting a lot of fairly negative blogs lately (or at least whiny, heh)--I'm tired, I'm stressed, etc. That's because I've been struggling for what feels like a very long time--first because I was so insanely busy and st... Read more

Have you ever had those moments when things on sparks just clicks with what's going on in your life, like some grand cosmic message? First this week one of the teams I was on had a relaxation challenge (still working on that, by the way) and th... Read more

Saturday, October 09, 2010      5 comments

Grr. We came back from vacation to having tons of fruit flies in the apartment. I don't know where they came from or what attracted them, as we didn't have any food in the house, but it's making it hard to keep fresh fruit and tomatoes in the ... Read more

First of all, I beg everyone to understand and forgive me. I gave up last night of trying to catch up on everyone's blogs--I realized that I have over 75 blogs on sparks that I am subscribed to, and while not all of those are still active, it w... Read more

I have a question.... Background. Last Thursday, I did something to my left knee-- I have no idea what. I was sitting with my leg propped up and when I stood up it hurt like crazy--I could barely stand, let alone move. Eventually it got b... Read more

Sunday, September 26, 2010      5 comments

In the post-vacation crash, I'm finding it a bit of a struggle to feel positive about my body. My hip hurt a fair amount while on vacation (all that walking, I imagine--but, to be fair, I WALKED. I danced. I even climbed a pyramid. 4 years a... Read more
