Thanks for all the comments and encouragement from Spark People far and wide on my 5K blog. I was blown away when I saw that it got a popular blog trophy! It was a lot of fun doing this with family, and we want to do it again. Maybe when we... Read more

Did I reach my goal?
Thursday, May 31, 2012 8 comments
Today is my goal day. This is the date I aimed for when I signed up for Sparks last August--the day I was to achieve a weight loss of 40 pounds. Even though my ticker says I've lost 40 (and a half!) pounds, seven of those were pre-Sparks pounds,... Read more

I'm in shock! This has never happened to me before. Last evening I was told that I don't weigh enough to make a Double Red Cell donation. Seriously?!? I've never in my life been told that I don't weigh enough for anything! I've donated bloo... Read more

Random, perhaps not cohesive, thoughts
Wednesday, October 19, 2011 3 comments
This morning, with the cool weather, I found myself standing in my closet wondering what to wear to work. And in the midst of the wondering, I wondered how many of the clothes I wore this summer I won't be wearing next spring. As I break out the... Read more
Donut holes don't have calories, do they?

OK, there are donuts in the break room this Tuesday. Again! Donuts are one of my red flag foods--those that once I start eating them I don't quit. And twice a week a local donut shop donates their leftovers to us. Donut shops close here at noon,... Read more

Kind of late in starting blogging, but the past couple months were an exercise in mental hanging-on-with-the-tips-of-my
