Day 1721- Reality Check
I'm sorry for my absence. I've just been struggling with coming up with anything to write lately.
I don't feel inspired. Or inspirational.
I mostly just feel blah.
I'm upset about how I feel I'm being treated at work. But rather... Read more
Day 1710- There's Cheesecake In The Break Room And Other Horrible Phrases
I'm kidding. I won't include any other horrible phrases.
That phrase popped up in my email at work today.
And I felt my body getting out of my chair and thought, "Why are you standing up, you don't need cheesecake."
And as I wal... Read more
Day 1699- July Race Complete and My 27th Birthday
When I joined SparkPeople, I was 22 years old.
Tomorrow will be my 27th birthday.
After my first year with SparkPeople, if you would have told me that I still wouldn't be at goal at age 27, I would have said you were crazy. I was on ... Read more
Day 1693- Keeping Things In Perspective
Warning ahead of time. This will be a very rambly (I don't think that's a word) blog.
Seriously, I'm about to be all over the place, so maybe get yourself a map.
So, yesterday I weighed back in at 213.8. Ugh. This whole lifestyle cha... Read more
Day 1692- Did I Fall Off A Cliff?
No. No I did not. Not literally at least.
I had a wonderful trip to Yellowstone last week, and here are a bunch of pictures!

Day 1680- Time To Heal
I attempted to go back to work on Wednesday, and midway through the day, I started to get a pounding headache, so I returned to my family doctor's office. Although my doctor was out, the physician I saw suggested I take the r... Read more
Day 1675- Can't Catch a Break
Yesterday, J.D. and I went mountain biking. We'd been a few times previously, and I had enjoyed it. It's a little more exciting than just biking on the bike path.
Last night, J.D. took me to a new bike path that he'd been on a ... Read more
Day 1674- What The World Needs Now
Some silence is truly deafening.
Over the past few weeks, the events in the U.S. have made me truly sad. And I find myself at a loss for words. One, because while I could mean well, many things I could say could hurt or offend others and t... Read more
Day 1661- Would It Help?
First, I'm not entirely sure that I haven't already blogged about this, and I don't have the time to go back and read through my past few months, so if this is a repeat, I'm sorry.
How many of you have seen the movie Bridge of Spies?

Day 1660- Going Into Hiding
I'm not really going into hiding. I just have things going on that I don't feel comfortable blogging about.
I've spent the past 4 years with a pretty open door into my life and now that I have things that are taking a lot ... Read more
Day 1654- Another Car Accident
I'm okay. I'll start out with that.
I just seem to have some bad luck lately.
I went home this weekend for a memorial service for my father's dissertation advisor. My dad receive all three of his degrees from Ohio University, and thi... Read more
Day 1647- One Bad Meal Does Not a Bad Week Make
Sorry for the absence. There is just a lot going on in my life right now, that I hope to share about soon, but can't right now.
Nope, still not pregnant, so no need to wonder about that.
Today was my weekly meeting at work for weight... Read more
Day 1640- Why Did You Leave SparkPeople?
It's a silly title for a blog, since the people I'm asking it to probably aren't reading it. But it's something that's been on my mind recently. I just can't ever imagine a point in my life where I'm not using the app, reading articles, and stay... Read more
Day 1639- June So Far
Well, it hasn't been my most successful month yet, but I'm still noticing changes that I like, so I'm not counting it as a loss.
I'm not great at No-Junk June. I'm still eating mostly well, but I have more treats then I would like. I've de... Read more
Day 1635- Who Needs Washed Hair?
Yesterday was a successful day.
I wanted to eat junk around 2pm but just munched on some almonds.
I got home and had dinner and then went for a jog around the neighborhood with J.D. He hasn't done much running since his back surgery ... Read more
