At the beginning of May I started a "clean eating challenge." The goal was to eat nothing but unprocessed foods, exercise and drink plenty of water for the next 30 days. I did really well ... for the first 10 days or so. Then I just fizzled out.... Read more

The last time I checked in was almost exactly a year ago. There was a time when I was very active in the SparkPeople community. That was one of the healthiest periods of my adult life. I see a connection there. I have been away from SparkP... Read more

I've reached the mellower part of a new weight loss endeavor. Of course, I have to keep reminding myself it's about more than just losing the weight. That helps to keep me going. I want to develop healthy habits - and stick with them. And I... Read more
the best I have to offer right now - my honesty
Monday, March 07, 2011      12 comments

I finally figured out why I've been so shy about jumping back into blogging here at sparkpeople. When I sit down and look at where I'm at, where I've been, where I want to be ... I feel like I have absolutely zilch to offer to anyone. Who wants ... Read more

Exactly a week after my last blog entry, I was informed that my office was closing - immediately. Wow. I had seen it coming for some time, but it still sent me reeling when it actually happened. For the next two months, my full time job bec... Read more

My recent life has been a series of ups and downs and mostly downs. My job is very unstable (and that's an optimistic outlook). I don't see it lasting through the winter. I've been searching for a new job before this one gives out on me. So far ... Read more

I'm taking stock of where I'm at, right here, right now. I won't say I'm starting over. This is a life-long journey. I have no end goal. This will never end. Like I said, this is a life-long journey. So right now this is what I'm doing... Read more

I've been tackling the healthy eating and water goals. I'm doing quite well on both of those fronts. (yay me!) Now ... exercise is looming on my horizon. I've been getting walks in at work during my lunch break. I've enjoyed them. But I not... Read more

The boss asked me to pick up a salad from McD's for her today. I'm starting to grow weary of salads for lunch, so I thought I'd get a couple of their grilled chicken snack wraps. I got back to work, only to find that they had wrapped them as gri... Read more

I've got the weight loss mini-goals and rewards worked out with my beaded bracelet. But what about daily goals and rewards? I got an 18 month planner over the weekend. I've had a ton of stickers just sitting around the house, begging to be ... Read more

I've been kind of AWOL the past week or so. I've not gone completely off of the deep end with my food choices. I haven't made the best choices either. I had my 40th birthday to celebrate in that time frame. That included pineapple upside down ca... Read more

I've stuck with my healthy efforts all week now. And I'm feeling very good on so many levels. I see this in many aspects of my life, besides just physically. I caught myself smiling today for no real reason. That's not all that unusual... Read more

Wednesday, May 26, 2010      4 comments

So I have this wonderful bike in my room. It's hooked up to a trainer so that I could ride it through the winter without having to go out into the weather. The last time I rode it wasn't this past winter. It was the winter before. I rode it so m... Read more
the skinny on kumquats
Tuesday, May 25, 2010      1 comments

As promised, I tried a kumquat once I got home yesterday. It was ... interesting. The inside tasted very lemon-like, while the skin or peel was bitter and sweet at the same time. I tried a couple more after dinner and decided that I didn't... Read more
