Alas, I promised a blog and a blog ye shall get. Unfortunately though, I'm not feeling particularly brilliant tonight, so I'm throwing together a hodge-podge of things that I'm thinking that may or may not have any relation to each other, but t... Read more

I am not a food sharer. I really, seriously suck at sharing anything on my plate. I'm like Joey on Friends (ah, Friends - I miss that show) when he goes out on a date with a pretty girl and has to dump her because she took one of his french fr... Read more
Cookie Face-Off
Thursday, June 10, 2010      18 comments

He told me I could have a cookie too. Drat! Now what? Do I want the cookie? - Yes. Can I afford the cookie (calorie wise)? - No. If I have it, I'll go over for the day. But it's there, and it's chewy and delicious and he offered it to me f... Read more
Ode to a Grocery Store

Oh, Whole Foods...how I love thee. On Thursday mornings, my weekly schedule brings me close to a Whole Foods Market. Since I'm on my way to work when I pass by, I usually can't stop for long or buy too much because I have to keep it with m... Read more

Since joining SparkPeople I have started to look at the world differently. There are the obvious ways - trying to figure out how to fit in more exercise, cooking new recipes, waking up every morning and walking myself through my day to make... Read more
Summer Flings and Diamond Rings
Thursday, June 03, 2010      19 comments

It was August 2006. I had just started a new job and was figuring myself a pretty big deal since this new position was in my field and finally paid more than poverty level in Chicago. I was working on my first big project that involved calling... Read more
Please Hold - We're Experiencing Technical Difficulties
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      12 comments

Ah, the ballad of the broken scale. Well, I don't think it's broken, but my house might be. So I get up this morning and am dreading the weigh-in anyway. I know I'm likely going to be up because of the long weekend, and the food and the a... Read more
Old Habits Die Hard
Friday, May 28, 2010      11 comments

Maybe it was because I was hungry. Maybe it was because I was tired. Maybe it was because I started delving into some rough stuff with my therapist that I'm not quite sure how to process yet. Maybe it was because I thought I deserved it. ... Read more
Radio Silence
Wednesday, May 26, 2010      5 comments

Wow. I haven't blogged in a week. To be honest, I haven't really had all that much to say. I've been coming to terms with my last blog and letting the idea of becoming an "athlete" truly sink in. I like it. I'm game for it. I'm making plan... Read more
Swim. Bike. Run.
Thursday, May 20, 2010      9 comments

I just had a CRAZY idea. I mean seriously, I think someone might have to lock me in a loony-bin. I had a GREAT swim tonight - and quite possibly it is the reason for this crazy thinking I've been doing. I have a sneaking suspicion that I ... Read more
It's Not Easy Being Green
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      8 comments

It's been a long week. Well - at least it feels that way. I've been a bit more detached from my "Sparkiness" of late - checking my page only a couple times a day, using my nutrition and fitness tracker, checking in on the DGOTD and then signin... Read more
Boring Weight Loss... Learning to Embrace the Plateau and Other Small Hang-ups
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      12 comments

I've been working through the idea for this blog for a few weeks now. This morning I am mad at the scale again, so I think it's time to get this out of my head and down somewhere that I can see it. Only ten pounds into my journey and I hav... Read more
The More We Do, The More We Are Able To Do
Monday, May 10, 2010      4 comments

Human beings are really amazing. We have the capability to adapt to just about anything. We live in crazy climates, we support any number of stresses on our bodies physically and mentally, we have children, we hold multiple jobs, we deal with ... Read more
Going to Great Lengths...for Exercise???
Thursday, May 06, 2010      9 comments

When we would take family trips as kids to Florida, my mother would always plan our route around all the Cracker Barrels on the way. I can remember getting the Cracker Barrel map of the US and following our route based on where we were stopping... Read more
Scale-Busting: Inches are the New Pounds!
Wednesday, May 05, 2010      6 comments

So even with the new weigh-in Wednesdays, I'm still up. It's cool though. I'm blaming TOM. And the fact that 12.6 pounds in 2 weeks really is A LOT to lose, so my body is just getting used to this whole 'healthy lifestyle' thing anyway. I'm ... Read more
