The anatomy of dinner decisions
Wednesday, February 29, 2012      11 comments

The 5-year-old who lives in my head: WAAAAH! You didn't feed me ALL DAY!!! I'm starving!! Me: I'm sorry. This day didn't go anything like it was supposed to. Let's make dinner now. 5yo: WAAAAH!!!! I'm too hungry for cooking!! Let's eat... Read more
Davy Jones! Oh no!
Wednesday, February 29, 2012      4 comments

So sad to read that Davy Jones has died. I remember The Monkees TV show from when I was in grade school. My own idols aren't supposed to be dropping dead; it's too soon for that!... Read more
Positive week

The sun is shining, and my house is getting cleaned out! The major declutter continues. How do we accumulate so much stuff?? It's pretty crazy. I feel like getting my life in order is directly related to getting my healthy living in order.... Read more

I haven't decided about plank positions yet. They are hard to do and make me miserable, which is an indication that they're good exercise, but I'm not sure exactly what it is they are really accomplishing. Except instilling dread in my very soul... Read more

After yesterday's cleaning, I had an hour's workout. And today I am paying for my enthusiasm in a rather unhappy back. Alas, it's a day of rest for me.... Read more
I can't argue with Myself!
Friday, February 24, 2012      3 comments

I tried. I told Myself I was really too tired, and my back was threatening wonkiness. I told Myself that tomorrow is a Saturday and there's lots of time for working out. I told Myself that I really didn't have time. Myself ke... Read more
Day One of Organization
Friday, February 24, 2012      3 comments

I've read several books on getting your house cleaned and organized. They universally suggest focusing on one room at a time, and for just a small part of the day. Naturally, I attacked the living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, AND m... Read more
10-day shakeup
Friday, February 24, 2012      11 comments

Hubby is leaving this morning for 10 days out of town, so I have the house all to myself. I am planning to use this time well! Every once in a while, moderation requires a bit of a shakeup, so there is going to be a combination of 10 days of hou... Read more
Those cute little girls are dangerous!

They got me in the grocery store: Girl Scouts. Those hopeful, smiling faces. How could I resist? I limited myself to two boxes: one Samoas and one Tagalongs. I brought them home yesterday. There are only five Samoas left today. But *I*... Read more
Paean to a Pair of Shades
Wednesday, February 22, 2012      5 comments

I wore the same sunglasses for 26 years. Not the same kind of sunglasses. The same sunglasses. And this was not a pair that lived in the car and were only worn while driving. I wore these glasses camping, kayaking, biking and skiing. T... Read more
Filled with pride and excitement!
Monday, February 20, 2012      12 comments

This has nothing to do with weight loss or working out, but I'm thrilled to bits to announce that my husband has been nominated for a Nebula award! For those of you who don't know, it's the science fiction writer's equivalent of The Oscars. He's... Read more
Gotta get off the computer
Sunday, February 19, 2012      7 comments

I love Spark, but it's making my computer dependence an even bigger problem. I can spend the whole day answering email and team messages. So tomorrow I have to start controlling and limiting my computer time. Life is passing me by while I'm sitt... Read more
Today's exercise: figuring out when to keep my mouth shut
Friday, February 17, 2012      10 comments

On a regular basis, I read about member here on Spark people doing things that are unwise: exercising is a way that may not be safe; eating in a way that isn't very healthy. And I have to debate each time whether to speak up and give my advice o... Read more
February is cordially invited to LEAVE
Thursday, February 16, 2012      7 comments

The continually-sick thing is getting old, old, old. I'd be worried if it weren't for the fact that hubby has it, too. We are just useless, though. I haven't gotten any work done for most of the month. My brain is just not functional. And every ... Read more
Brand new day
Wednesday, February 15, 2012      4 comments

Up on time, slept well, now let's see if I can actually manage a moderate workout instead of killing myself with my own enthusiasm again!! I do have a hard time with coming back slow--I am not patient with myself.... Read more
