Any of you who read my status yesterday know that I wasn't having a wonderful Monday. In fact, I haven't had a wonderful Monday since the turn of the New Year (I know there's only been two of them, but neither one of them have been a good day).... Read more

Saturday, January 01, 2011      26 comments

In all honesty, I don't like odd number years. Something about them makes me uneasy since some of the worst years of my life have been on the odds. 2009 was TERRIBLE for me - it was one of the worst health years of my life given that I had let... Read more

I just ate half a cake. OK - I'm lying. I just ate three quarters of a cake. Stupid cake. This is not me falling off the wagon. This is me sitting in the wagon...with my cake. I denied myself the cookies all day long. I'm ... Read more

So I'm definitely NOT on vacation any more. The jet lag has faded, the memories are growing distant, and WORK will not let up long enough to let me breathe let alone get anything accomplished before Christmas. I MISS Spark, I miss reading arti... Read more

All vacations sadly must come to an end, and since my body wanted to kick me while I was down, it decided to pick up a 48hr stomach flu bug on top of the chest cold I was already nursing for my last 2 days in Germany. Lovely. After a beaut... Read more

Where to even begin? I've seriously fallen behind in my travel-blogs, not to mention in my food and exercise tracking - but I think I'm still doing ok. It's so hard to tell. It's been harder than I imagined it would be to blog every day. ... Read more

"Kalt Klima! Warme Menchen!" says this old man, with lots of wild hand gestures when I tried to explain to him in VERY bad German/English that I was from Canada. "Ooooh, Canada" - he said, and grimaced. "Kalt! Sehr kalt!!!" We we're stand... Read more

I arrived in Berlin along with the first snow of the season. It's bloody cold, but everything is covered in a thin layer of white which somehow makes the cold a little friendlier...well, that and Gluehwein (but more on that later). After a... Read more

Tomorrow, while the rest of America will be gorging on turkey and watching football, I will be peeling the plastic wrap off of my pre-packaged in-flight dinner and cracking the twist top on my tiny bottle of airplane wine...and I couldn't be mor... Read more
Cry Baby

Over the past few weeks I have turned into the biggest blubber-butt ever. And I'm not talking about fat, because thankfully, my booty continues to shrink - woohoo! I'm talking about being an emotional mush bucket. For a person who has wal... Read more
