Change #2 - perspective
My long-time Sparkfriends know all about the blue bridesmaid dress from my youngest sister's wedding on May 2011...just to jog the memory - it's a size 8 (really a size 6 in a normal person's world) and was only hemmed at the bridal shop because... Read more
Change #1 - less on my plate, sort of...
In my last blog, I mentioned changes going on....one of them is that there is "less on my plate"...in the figurative sense...not the literal sense.
For example - I used to get my nephew on and off the bus at my house every day because he an... Read more
Update: so many changes going on.
If I had to list how many changes have been going on and are going to be in the future, your head might spin! And most of these things are GOOD things too...but stressful nonetheless.
All of these changes have been weighing on my mind too -... Read more
I am a Kindle addict
Yup...if you knew how many books I have purchased and read in the last 2 months of having this thing...you'd think "does she do anything else but read??"
I can read a book a day if I wanted to...I am a very fast reader. Yup - I was one of ... Read more
Sometimes it's all in your head
Whenever I get down about things, I get little reminders at how it was..and how it could have been if I didn't get things under control when I did.
For example, when we went to Boston to visit my sister on, seriously, the hottest day of the... Read more
It's the little things.
So my last blog was me trying not to flip out about me being out of my maintenance range. (Yup - that was a flip-out blog....see how evolved I have become? LOL)
Well, as per my usual, getting back on track was easy enough...don't get me wr... Read more
Up, up...and AWAY!
That's what I thought after I stepped on the scale today and saw 136....a number I haven't seen in a while. And It probably is more than that, since vacation calories tend to sneak on a few lag days behind after you actually stop the eating an... Read more
Another thing to omit out of my diet for now
I have a running list of things that make me feel like crap...things that I LOOOOVE (or loved) too...it's a list that has taken years to compile with knowing what foods make me feel good and what make me feel sick (literally in some cases). It... Read more
Negative people stink
Every time I hear "ugh, this just isn't going to work." well, frankly, it drives me nuts.
Why not?? Why won't it work? Who says???
I get the whole "I don't wanna be here - this (insert occassion - like a birthday party you'd rather sk... Read more
Do me proud
This is for all my new friend adds out there:
Do me a favor...make me proud.
Do this for you....track your food, read and learn, drink your water...do this for you...and make me proud.
I am here all the time...I'm not a fly by ni... Read more
A blip on the radar
A flash in the pan.
A wrinkle in time.
This too shall pass.
Can't say that I'm all that happy with being in the top portion of my range...so I actually vocalized it on Saturday to my husband.
Quick backstory: I listen to him ... Read more
Up & Down & Steady
Ahh.....the scale has been doing that so much this week....and if I were in any other place other than Maintenance, I'd be upset....but this is what Maintenance is.....you get a range of 5 pounds and that is your goal - to stay in that range.

Me & My low expectations
I laugh sometimes at my new found "low expectations"...and maybe it's why I continually surprise myself. I just don't expect too much anymore...and you know what? I don't think it's really a bad thing.
Let's get a back story of me and my H... Read more
Lose vs. Loose - definitions
Hey there...it's time for a little "educamation."
This is big, GINORMOUS pet peeve of mine...and for some reason, people either do not know or care to know the difference between the 2 words listed above, nor how to use them correctly....it... Read more
Hey, soccermom's...I so get it now, but I'm not giving in....
I have 3 sons....and with that, I have been warned that when they are all in sports (like now), well, then, all the free time that WAS yours is now gone and you are the taxi service from the hours of 5pm to 7:30 or 8pm at night.
And you kno... Read more
