Back from the dead

I still want to sleep a dozen hours a night, but I'm feeling well enough for a mild workout today. Have to remind myself not to overdo things starting out. It's easy to get over-ethusiastic!... Read more

I just finished doing a 6 week challenges on one of my Spark teams, and I did lose a decent amount of weight--tomorrow is the official weigh-in day, but I stepped on the scale today and I'm down 17 pounds since the beginning of the challenge. Wh... Read more
Sick, yet successful
Saturday, February 11, 2012      5 comments

I've been too sick to do much of anything the last week, but I haven't used it as an excuse to eat bad food, and I feel pleased that I haven't fallen into my usual pattern of treating sick time as somehow excused. Because it's dejecting to get t... Read more

I woke up at 6am with a nose bleed, then went back to bed and was there until 11:30. I feel dreadful.... Read more
Sick house
Thursday, February 09, 2012      8 comments

Hubs and I have both managed to come down sick. This is unusual; we generally are only sick one at a time, and don't tend to "cross-pollinate" our illnesses. But hey, it's almost Valentines Day, and isn't this a time for loving couples to s... Read more
Getting sick?
Wednesday, February 08, 2012      5 comments

In the last few years, it seems like my winters have been spent swinging from one cold to the next. This year has been much better; a couple times I thought I was getting sick, but managed to stave it off. Today, though, I think this cold h... Read more
A sign of the new me?

After last night's drool-worthy watching of Triple-D, I went to bed and dreamt about eating... Strawberries. A long, elaborate dream about having a large dinner party with friends, and the hosts insisting it was time for dessert, and m... Read more
Self torture

You know, when you're up late and kind of hungry, watching "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives"? It's kind of...pornography. (This is me laughing at myself -- and heading for bed instead of for the kitchen!)... Read more
Resolution of frustration with friend
Sunday, February 05, 2012      7 comments

Thanks to everyone who commented on my post yesterday. Your comments really helped me to decide how to handle the situation. I should clarify that the day's plans were to take the kids to the home show with us and then they went home to a... Read more
Frustration with a friend
Saturday, February 04, 2012      9 comments

We went to the Home Show with our best friends and their three kids today. After only getting through about 1/3 of the aisles, my friend decided that she wanted to buy Sugar Bears, small marsupials that look like tiny flying squirrels. The proce... Read more

I got to the top of the stairs, sighed heavily, and said to Hubby, "This. This is the moment when I really miss it." Yes, I'm day three into no artificially sweetened iced tea mix, and doing pretty well. But after I finish my workout, my fi... Read more
My other addiction
Thursday, February 02, 2012      10 comments

Unless we go out or have friends over, I've fallen into the habit of staring at the computer all evening, just refreshing the page and looking for things to respond to. While I love the support I'm getting here, and have friends I want to intera... Read more
The day of reckoning
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      8 comments

For over a quarter century I have been drinking Lipton Sugar Free Instant Iced Tea, a concoction of chemical sweetness and caffeination that has kept me going through raising kids, working, divorce and remarriage, moving across country, and more... Read more
A quarter of the way!
Monday, January 30, 2012      12 comments

As of today, I am 1/4 of the way to my goal weight. I've also reached the "10% of body weight lost" goal. I've been on Spark People just a little bit over 4 months, and with all this help and support I have made tremendous progress. Thank you al... Read more
