My rewards program
Tuesday, November 21, 2017      9 comments

One of my SparkTeam friends asked if I would share my rewards program that I set up, "if it's not too complicated." My response was that it IS complicated, only because I'm geeky and I apparently like tweaking spreadsheets endlessly. ... Read more

I am in the heart of a very stressful, timeline-sensitive project at work. Unfortunately I keep getting interrupted enough that I have had a hard time working on the things I need to get done. So today I was allowed to work from home so I coul... Read more

Hubby made pizza last night for the family. There was some leftover dough and I think he was going to just toss it. We have oodles of tomatoes sitting on the counter that need to be used so I decided to make a fresh tomato pizza. Sadly we did... Read more

Well, I signed up to participate in the Summer 5% Challenge. I severely pooped out before the end of the last one. I think it was slight burn-out since I had been rather strict - not just for the Spring 5% challenge, but for a month before tha... Read more

For the past 10 days or so it seems like all it has done is rain, rain, rain. Today I received permission to work from home, as I can concentrate better (sometimes). What a lucky break that was. The ... Read more

I've been a member of SP since Jan 2009. I've lost some weight, gained it back, got pregnant, life was busy, started SP again and again, etc., etc., etc. I'm tired of the excuses. I'm fed up with feeling tired. This time it's gonna happen. ... Read more

So-long SP, hello BF!
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      6 comments

I think I'm going to "drop out" of SparkPeople for a while. I recently discovered that I'm pregnant and my energy level is so low that following SP exercises is out of the question. And eating healthy? I'm just trying to EAT! Anything. I ha... Read more

I'm ready to get back into some sort of routine again. However, because of the stress and lack of control over my environment the last couple of weeks (FIL passing), I'm back to drinking too much soda again. I read recently about a woman t... Read more
February do-over
Monday, February 01, 2010      4 comments

I started off the month strong, but typical of my past attempts by the end of the month I was slacking off more than exercising. I'm going to forget about what I didn't accomplish in January and start over again for February. On the posit... Read more
