Apparently this week my sparks action is supposed to focus on meal planning and eating the right foods (I stayed on the first step for a really long time because I joined sparks and then got thrown into moving madness and that just didn't seem l... Read more
Positive Isn't Easy
Wednesday, June 17, 2009      2 comments

Yesterday I'm posting about the importance of keeping a positive outlook and how sometimes that's not so easy to do, and today is the poster child day for days that it's really, really hard to be positive. My husband woke me up this morning... Read more

A friend of mine introduced me to a store which is kind of like a cross between a nursery and a grocery store. You can buy tons of different plants and planting supplies there--we wandered around looking at the various herbs and flowers and adm... Read more
Fitness Center Observations
Monday, June 08, 2009      2 comments

I've never gone to a gym before, so the fitness center at our new apartment is very new to me. We looked into gyms about a year or two ago, but simply couldn't afford the rates, but one of the reasons we chose our new apartment complex is that ... Read more

I originally posted this as a comment on SAASHA17's blog as a response(to her recommendations, then decided to post it again here (with some minor changes), if for no other reason than I would have it on record for my own use. Thank you, S... Read more

Yesterday, I wrote about general eating trends in an attempt to understand my eating habits in order to find problem areas so that I can fix them. And I think I've done a decent job at spotting my weaknesses, if not necessarily implementing a p... Read more

Not surprisingly, a lot of the articles I've been reading talk about our relationship with food and the role eating plays in our lives--not just as a source of fuel and building blocks for our body, but also as a social and psychological source ... Read more

My dad brought some stuff from their house that we had temporarily stored there for the move, and while he was here we went to the community fitness center so that he could show me how to use the machines. I've never used any fitness equipment ... Read more

It's kind of funny, in a way. I have been reading sparks articles recently about priorities and the importance of making time for yourself--time to work out, time to rest and recharge your batteries, time to get enough sleep and time to eat pro... Read more
A break
Wednesday, May 20, 2009      0 comments

Moving day 20, and I'm so tired and yet we're running out of time. We've painted the new apartment, moved over most though not all of the boxes and some of the smaller furniture, have put up a lot of shelving, and are in the process of packing ... Read more
Some bad, but mostly good

What do they say about the Best Laid Plans? Yesterday was another really long, busy day in a string of very long, busy days, so when I got home the night before, even though it was really late and I was really tired I made sure I set my ala... Read more
Moving: Day 12
Tuesday, May 12, 2009      0 comments

Well, moving may be making it difficult to find time for my regular exercise regimen (though I did work out again on Monday and am working out out how to find time tomorrow...) but moving is a lot of hard work. First I was painting and then I ... Read more
Day 5 of Painting
Tuesday, May 05, 2009      0 comments

Today was day 5 of painting the new apartment and I am beginning to wonder why I ever thought that color was worth all this effort. Grin. It will look great though when it's done--and I'm so tired of institutional white. Though at the moment,... Read more

I'm really sore today. I wish I could say I was sore because I worked out, but no, I'm sore because I've spent the last 3 days painting--10 hours of painting. But the new place is starting to look nice and so far at least we're on schedule. ... Read more
