Another Five Year Stint
Friday, November 02, 2007      4 comments

So, after over five years of being in a relationship, I've broken up with the love of my life. I'll be moving back to California (from London) for now and what the future holds, who knows. Nothing has happened -- no cheating/betrayal, no m... Read more
Maybe it's all about learning...

Once again, it's been ages since I've posted, much less logged in at all. I tend not to log in when I feel I'm "failing" as a proper Sparky Gal...the thing I'm starting to truly learn is that there is no such thing as failing. The only failure... Read more

My time online has waned, and in all honesty, my time doing most things has waned. I'm absolutely and completely wiped out. Why? In my mind, no good reason! I'm most likely anemic, seeing as it's historically been a problem, but MAN-O-MAN is... Read more
I am blessed.

Wow. It has been a few days since I've had the opportunity to log into SP and I'm really touched by everyone who has written to encourage me. I have been much better over the past few days and have benefited by being a bit gentle with myself. ... Read more

Where to start? I haven't logged in for at least a month and I haven't logged my food for even longer. I have been absolutely shoving it down, however, in a desperate attempt to allay negative feelings. I struggle to understand it, because i... Read more
Seasonal Confusion
Friday, August 24, 2007      2 comments

Here in the land of eternal winter, things can get confusing. It's the worst summer on record in the UK...well...my record any way. It's been so cold here, it feels far more like November than August. I find myself falling into the winter slu... Read more
How to kick a cold in a day!
Thursday, August 16, 2007      4 comments

All I can say is...wow. I heaped every cold-busting trick I could onto my recent infection and remarkably, it cleared, nearly entirely, within one day! That is unheard of for me -- once I get a cold, I tend to have sniffles for at least a week... Read more

It was bound to happen. Masses of stress and an increasingly poor diet (or shall I say rich...) -- bam. I'm ill! I'm a complete wimp when I'm sick, so I've been moaning all day about how poorly I am! I'm quite grateful, though, as falling il... Read more

Okay, for anyone who took me completely seriously, shame on you. Vomiting is not pleasant and I would never encourage anyone to actively pursue it...unless, of course, poison had been swallowed, but I digress... Today, I ate pretty well u... Read more
a yang for every yin

Taking a step back from things, you can often see that things are far more balanced than you realised. For every negative comment, there's often a positive one; for every bad day, a good one; and for every moment of panic, a moment of calm. Do... Read more

Well the past week or so has well and truly kicked my butt. I underestimated the stress levels in my new job -- I was really thrown into the thick of things. However, this is life! No, life isn't all horrible and stressful, life is fantastic ... Read more

Well, after writing a rather lengthy blog entry, SparkPeople decided it was not worthy, and prevented me from posting it. I must have had some dashes of some sort, as it said "no html please." Of course, the pop-up window that I write the blog... Read more
Running me bum off and other mindful musings.
Sunday, July 29, 2007      2 comments

So, I'm still going strong with this whole using my brain thing. I think, generally, it works well! ; ) I have been incorporating more and more planning into my days, and feeling much more in control. Hurrah! Today was a strength trainin... Read more
Trying to gain...
Saturday, July 28, 2007      3 comments

Yeah, that's right -- I'm trying to gain -- brain power, that is! I wonder what percentage of the weight I've lost came directly from brain cell atrophy/loss...I think I've just not really been with it lately, and I've been ignoring my best ass... Read more
Back in the Working World
Tuesday, July 24, 2007      4 comments

I'm pleased to say, I'm back amongst the world of the working! After many visa troubles, I'm now legal, working, and...tired! It's so sad, seeing as millions of people worldwide do it without a problem, but me, two days into my new job, am hun... Read more
