As I've mentioned, there is some stuff going on my life that is triggering emotional eating. I'm not eliminating it. I have better days and worse days. I'm nowhere near as on track as I was before vacation. Every day I've been waking up and... Read more
Embarrassed--Hide or Transparency?

I have my fair share of little slips on program. We all do. Since I came back to Sparkpeople I've been focused and ON. I went on vacation, made my choices, and came back heavier. My choice. I don't regret it. What I do regret is that in Oct... Read more

Returning to the vacation chronicles. Seems impossible I haven't finished all the countries we went to yet. At any rate, next was Finland. We did a foodie tour which took us through some great sightseeing with nibbles and meals along the way. Fi... Read more

Today I made plans to go to lunch with some friends. I had my lunch selected and calories all mapped out in advance. I stuck to it. I was proud of myself. Apparently maintaining my willpower for that lunch did me in. When I got back from lu... Read more

Yesterday I received distressing news at work. Don't be concerned, it's nothing earth-shattering. You know the news where you're not happy about it, but you'll get over it. I'll shake it off. After I received the news I kept thinking about ... Read more

Sunday, October 04, 2015      9 comments

I took the time to enter ALL my Sparkpeople measurements last week. I was inspired by fellow Sparkers who were talking about non-scale measurements of success. We are all going to hit that plateau. I figure when that happens for me I can savor r... Read more

Returning to the vacation chronicles after a little break for other things. Russia may have been my favorite place to visit. We went to The Hermitage first. Imagine my delight that the tour guide got us in before it opened to the public. Huge gl... Read more

Welcome to my updated page. Like the look? I was in the mood to decorate for my favorite holiday, Halloween. I love it even more than Christmas, although Christmas rates right up there I assure you! I'm joining my third Stormy's Challengers... Read more

I was so good throughout the day. And then it came time for the lunar eclipse of the supermoon. I actually got all excited. I took the camera out,... Read more

The next country we visited was Estonia. We went to Tallin. Adorable city. I had read so much about this little tucked away open air market. I wanted to go but everyone said it was so hard to find. I gave my husband all the info I could find on ... Read more

Do you strive for "more" for your career? If so, how do you balance work life? Or is that even possible with the choices you make? Did you always think that you needed to keep climbing the corporate ladder? Did something happen to make you ... Read more

Big and long day at work. Ultimately for the good. Just time pressure to deliver to make the good stuff happen. And 13 hour days are never fun. More of the same tomorrow. But next, Germany! ... Read more
Back from Vacation...and I QUIT SMOKING!
Tuesday, September 22, 2015      12 comments

Had a marvelous time but by the same token it is super good to be home too. Back to my own bed, my own shower, my house (dusty though it was after two weeks!), my clingy poor CAT! She had visitors three times a day but you'd think we were brutal... Read more
