Return of the Raspberry

OK - let's try this *again*! (Yeah, I've said it before...........)

Today, 10/8/15, I received awesome news (have been on a frustrating job search since May)............so now it's time to reflect on the experience and how I've worked through it - and frankly, it has *not* been a good one.......

Sooooooo - now, the introspection and soul-searching (or what's left of my "soul") begins again, including "re-Sparking"!

Sooooooo - now, the introspection and soul-searching (or what's left of my "soul") begins again, including "re-Sparking"!

I'll shoot for a 40 lb. loss again - and will give myself a year to do so (I figure that'll allow for - ahem - age-related changes in metabolism).............eating, as in the past, will continue to be a challenge, but I have still been pretty consistent with workouts, thankfully..........I *still need to deal with stress better than I have been* - it's been a DOOZY to try to deal with that this time around.......

For those who've read my recent vents - thank you for bearing with me! I felt I needed to back off of things a bit for a while, so turning off my SparkPage for a while just seemed to be the prudent thing to do while I diligently worked on getting back on my feet.........

Let's hope the "third time's the charm"!

My Goals:
A better body and overall health - and a neater appearance in suits would be a good thing, too (as much as I HATE suits) :)

My Program:
No formal plan for now, but a basic cleanup of bad habits and refocusing on stress and emotional eating issues.....of course, the ultimate stress resolution will be getting re-employed :)

Just trying to keep in mind that old saying - "one day at a time"!

I had no idea that the Tax Day deadline had been moved to 4/18.
Usually, when April 15 falls on a weekend the tax deadline is moved to the following Monday. April 15 falls on a Friday this year but another event, Emancipation Day, is pushing back the deadline three more days. Emancipation Day???? Emancipation Day is a legal holiday in D.C. with city workers off the job. Since this year's holiday is on a Saturday, it will be observed on the closest weekday, which falls on April 15, moving the tax deadline to the next Monday on April 18.

now I feel like I did my taxes early emoticon

emoticon for stopping by my blog. I have been downing water like no tomorrow recently. My weigh in showed that the scale is starting to go in the right direction. I don't know if I could do just plain rice cakes, but I am definitely open to giving them a shot!

Hope all is well!
