Another Eatingwell soup picked by the Guy. I'm not such an eggplant fan, but I'm trying (this week, I made an Indian eggplant recipe and it was delicious). Recipe here:

Mindful Eating

Wednesday, January 07, 2015      4 comments

As we have powered through the holiday season and the beginning of the year, many of the maintenance bloggers have documented going through the Beck program. I was totally unfamiliar with it, so I read their blogs with interest, and as I mentio... Read more

Wednesday, December 24, 2014      3 comments

If you've never been to Mount Dora, FL, imagine rolling hills, lakes (including Lake Dora), quaint shops, foodie type restaurants, antiques and a lot of charm. Hills aside (more on that later), a great place to run, and this was a great race. ... Read more

Thinking about 2015

Friday, December 19, 2014      1 comments

2015 will be here in less than two weeks...and I'm still wondering where 2014 went. I have no idea, but time is flying. Anyhow, I've been thinking a lot about where I would like to go with my journey this coming year. I've been struggling... Read more

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wednesday, November 26, 2014      9 comments

Happy Thanksgiving to all US-based Sparkers! So this year, I have a lot to be thankful for. I met a great guy, met my goal weight, am well on my way to completing my first formal HM, etc. I'm actually am having two Thanksgivings - one wit... Read more

Spending some downtime at work in between appointments planning meals for the next few weeks. I loathe going anywhere like Walmart after Thanksgiving and usually only make it to the regular grocery store. The crowds and the frazzle is too much... Read more

2014 IACP Univeral Adventure 5K Run/Walk

Monday, October 27, 2014      3 comments

This event was run by Track Shack (but was not one of their races); they also ran the Miracle Miles 15K. This was my 3rd race with them, and I can't say that I'm impressed. They are running a couple more that I want to do, but we'll see. I al... Read more

Under 144 and Weekend 5K

Thursday, October 23, 2014      1 comments

So apparently, I lost close to 2 lbs overnight - just under 144 this morning. More scale lies, but probably my weigh in today was close to the truth. Adjusting and moving on. I pretty much have mentioned the lies so one, I don't freak out... Read more

Scale lies & other rambles

Thursday through Sunday, I was in New Orleans. I had some piggy moments, except on Sunday when I got back to normal. I only got one organized exercise session in, but did tons and tons of walking and spent way too much money. I loved the city... Read more

Some clarity

Tuesday, October 14, 2014      5 comments

I feel like I need to clarify some points on yesterday's blog - mostly as I gain more perspective and think more thoughts. Pesky how those happen, eh? One, I took a break with a finite length. I knew yesterday would be back to the routine... Read more

Took some time off....

Monday, October 13, 2014      4 comments

Last week, I was done. I was beyond burnt out. I was really tired, worn down, not motivated and over it. I just wanted to lay in bed and read and not do much else. So I took some time off. I didn't really track food (and overate) and only d... Read more

But not for a run. Lazy morning on a rest day, and I did NOT want to get up for work. So I check my email, and Amazon has my running shoes half off! Woot! I have been monitoring them to get a second pair or two when the price dropped, so I or... Read more

October? Already?

Thursday, October 02, 2014      4 comments

October is typically my favorite month, but seriously, how is it October already?! This year is flying by. But I'm happy for Halloween, cooler temps, fall squash, etc. Been working on getting my weight down a bit to have some holiday "wiggle ... Read more

Miracle Miles 15K 9/20/14

Monday, September 22, 2014      3 comments

Impulsively, I signed up for a 15K this past Saturday a week before. A friend was doing it, and I was able to con the guy into signing up with me. We, for the most part, run 10-ish miles most Saturdays, so no problem, right? Sigh. I was ... Read more
