The Untrackables
Monday, July 09, 2018      3 comments

I'm still here. I haven't blogged in 6 days and I haven't tracked in 2 days, but I am still here and mindful. This weekend has been crazy. We did a German Club festival Friday, a huge family party Saturday, and a family trip to Govern... Read more
Are kids exercise?
Tuesday, July 03, 2018      2 comments

I'm taking a moment for myself while the 1 year old power naps before our afternoon pool time and the four year old hangs out with grandma, who thankfully came for a visit today. It's 10:30 in the morning and I am just sitting down to coffee aft... Read more
Process Blogging

I'm going to start this with Rhonda, Audra, you guys are so wonderfully supportive here - thank you. I am a fickle SP go-er and friend, yet you are always here, consistently and supportively. I appreciate that immensely. Today I am blogging... Read more

Today is day 2 of tracking and being mindful of when and how I am eating. I have not stayed within the calorie suggestions of SP (1200-1500), but I have nailed my protein numbers as well as remained aware of eating meals and not mindlessly grabb... Read more
A Similar Situation
Friday, June 29, 2018      2 comments

I seem to have found myself in a similar situation as I was when I first joined SparkPeople in 2013. My weight is eerily similar and my mood is uncomfortably parallel. I am, by no means, proud of this. In fact, I thought about a complete and utt... Read more
I'm Back. Again.
Wednesday, June 28, 2017      3 comments

I don't to appear to be the fickle girlfriend, who only comes crawling back when she needs something, but alas, here I am having not blogged in over a year, and am admittedly here, well, to blog. I'm back. Again. This will be the third... Read more
Tuesday's Jury Duty Musings
Wednesday, June 29, 2016      2 comments

I, first, should thank those of you for the support and advice on my previous blog. My mother-in-law did not force her poor eating beliefs on me or my daughter that night; instead she force fed her plantains and hot dogs. Which did bring me to a... Read more
I am, admittedly, venting here.

Today is one of my four solid "days off" before I begin teaching summer school and has been a delightful day with the little one thus far - not too mention we've been doing so much that I'm 500 steps away from my daily goal and it isn't even 2 p... Read more
It's been a while

I appear to struggle with my allegiance to SP when pregnant; though that seems to be the habit of many an SP member when pregnant or immediately afterwards. It's something about suddenly not knowing your body so well that makes the intuitive und... Read more
A Return from Vacation
Saturday, April 16, 2016      3 comments

So I'm typing this on my phone, which is a first, so forgive my brevity and potential for typos. We returned from a wonderful vacation that was filled with walking and climbing and unadulterated family time as well as indulgences. Indulgences ... Read more
I ate lasagna.
Sunday, March 27, 2016      3 comments

I ate lasagna tonight. And I liked it. But before this turns into a Katy Perry parody for Italian food, I feel the need to address that I hate lasagna. I can honestly say that absolutely nothing about its texture or taste has ever appe... Read more
More grievances than musings, but it's that kind of day
Monday, March 21, 2016      2 comments

I thought about going to bed early and decided on blogging instead. Perhaps I will regret this in the morning, but only time will tell. There's a lot going on in my head lately, which seems to be primarily stemming from some serious dissati... Read more
The 140 - 142 Paradigm & Other Musings
Wednesday, March 16, 2016      3 comments

140.4 lbs - 142.4 lbs is my consistent weigh-in range. At first it was three weeks at 142.4 and then one week at 140.4, always the week before my TOM. This time when my TOM was expected, I was, sure enough, 140.4 again. But this morning the patt... Read more
Bury the Lead
Monday, March 14, 2016      5 comments

So many things have happened and/or are worthy of blogging (for myself, of course), but alas time has not been my friend - or perhaps blogging just hasn't been my priority? I guess it's all a matter of perception. On that, I have been havin... Read more
The Daily Dissertation (or series of grievances)
Tuesday, March 01, 2016      3 comments

I'm not a fan of these few and far between blogs and, quite frankly, in an ideal, meritocratic, world riddled with self-confidence, I would blog daily - sometimes twice - and be paid handsomely. Alas, this is not that world - one day, perha... Read more
