Still Loving the Low Carb Way of Life
Tuesday, May 12, 2020      7 comments

Apparently I check in on SP every 2 years. My last entry was August of 2018, and here it is May of 2020! I'm still loving the low carb eating I wrote about last time. It has become so natural, just the way of life now. I am still in my size 6 je... Read more
Another New Stage of Life
Monday, August 13, 2018      1 comments

I just re-read my last blog entry, which was more than 2 years ago! That makes sense, since the last 2 years have been so incredibly stressful, busy, full of taking care of everyone but myself, and full of all kinds of heartbreak, as well as som... Read more

So, it's been exactly a month since I posted that last blog. I feel so much better than I did a month ago! I have checked in on SP first thing every single day, gotten back up over my goal of exercise minutes per week that I was doing before all... Read more

So, it's four months since I posted my last blog, but it all pretty much still applies, except that I weigh even MORE, and my old overalls are even CLOSER to completely wearing out, and a bunch more difficult stuff has been added to my life (dau... Read more

...is gonna be tough, but we gonna make it. (As the song so beautifully says.) So, after a LONG absence, I have my new laptop and I got up early enough to use my "anytime bytes" and have a little peace and quiet. Read the last couple of blogs I ... Read more
Success and The Meaning of Life
Monday, August 24, 2015      1 comments

What is "being successful"? I've been thinking about this some, lately. What I see is that often the people who are deemed "successful" are a) rich, b) incredibly over-stressed, c) too busy to enjoy life, or d) all of the above. I know success h... Read more
Back in the saddle again...

A combination of factors have kept me away from SP for a few months. My internet was so weak and iffy and prone to go off every 5 minutes, for one thing. My computer was totally on the fritz, for another. And things in my family household were i... Read more
My Personal Thanksgiving Challange
Saturday, November 01, 2014      4 comments

I haven't had the luxury of time to blog for a long time. I guess checking in every day on the Maintenance Team's daily check-in has substituted for blogging. However, today I need to take a few extra minutes and put my thoughts, goals, and plan... Read more

Update #3 on Primal Eating
Friday, June 20, 2014      4 comments

I've been getting very creative the past few days, and cooking things that turned out oh-so-delicious! I'm on vacation from working at school, and my hubby took 3 weeks off, and my son is home from university for 2 weeks. So I'm making 3 meals a... Read more
My Summer Goals
Friday, June 13, 2014      3 comments

I just got done re-reading my two fairly recent blogs about eating Primally 4 out of every 5 meals. I have continued on with this plan, and am loving it so far. Except for my non-primal snack yesterday, where I went overboard and had 2 pieces of... Read more

This past week I have implemented the plan I thought up for how to eat Primal fashion 80% of the time, and I am really shocked at the results! In case you didn't see the blog last week, I'll quickly recap the plan. According to the book I am rea... Read more
My First Sparkiversary
Monday, May 26, 2014      7 comments

It was nice of the school district to give me this special day off, don't you think!? It is my own special memorial day, and I am remembering all the good things that have happened in the last year. I am so happy to be at 133.8 today, instead of... Read more
My New Experiment in Eating
Saturday, May 24, 2014      5 comments

I think I can safely say that I am officially a weird person who loves to live by rules. I, of course, like to change up the rules now and then because otherwise I get bored and in a rut. Nevertheless, I like rules. I think it's my way of coping... Read more
Birthday Reflections on a Year of Change
Thursday, April 24, 2014      4 comments

I can hardly ever find time to blog anymore! I wanted to write something yesterday, which was my actual birthday, but spent all my computer time reading all the birthday greetings on facebook. Today I'm awake half an hour before my alarm went of... Read more
