Afternoon, SparkWorld! Some of you might know, but a week ago today I was dealt a really crumby card - my partner of over two years decided to end things. Skip to the next happier emoticon if you don't want to read details! To say I ... Read more

I just want to thank all of you who were so supportive after my last blog entry. I really was feeling low and terrible and I really appreciate having so many loving people there when I fall. I hadn't intended to write a month-after update ... Read more

Monday, February 23, 2015      9 comments

When I wrote my last blog entry, I thought "now, time for change!" -- did things change? No. Well, yes, they did, but for the worse. I had three amazing months in the fall but once I slipped, I kept on sliding. The scale confirmed it for m... Read more

I was going to write a nice long blog entry today about motivation and goals and working out but then I saw CRABADA posted this list a week or so ago and.. I want to get in on the fun too! This may or may not be too much information about ... Read more
Choosing self-love
Tuesday, September 23, 2014      8 comments

For many years, I hated my body and my self. Waking up in the morning, I would have a few moments of forgetting to hate, but I would be reminded by the glimpse of my jiggly arms or a fold when I sat up. The tone of the day was set -- my bo... Read more
I Know What I Did (or didn't do) This Summer
Thursday, September 18, 2014      5 comments

I'm baaaaaack! Wow, so it's been a while, eh Spark? Goodness. I was trying this whole doing-it-myself thing and it was going okay! But this past December, I lost my best friend and the woman who made me who I am, my grandmother. The stress ... Read more
Nine months later?? ~updates galore
Sunday, April 01, 2012      1 comments

Has it really been nine months since I was active on Spark? That's disappointing to me. I got caught up in a bit of a whirlwind romance at the end of July that lasted until January, and unfortunately its end sort of threw me off balance. When I ... Read more
