Today, I sucked it up and weighed in. I knew before I stepped on the scale that it would be cringe-worthy, and I... Read more
I did ok yesterday - managed to achieve everything on my list (except for putting makeup on!).
I could have done better with the amount of food that I ate -- I made good choices until the end of the day.
To keep... Read more

It was a busy morning at the office today. I got fed up and ended up having a brief outburst to vent my frustration with 'procedures' at the office -- tired of asking for specific instruction/direction/details, and getting vague responses, and ... Read more
CIrcling back around from somewhere I want to leave...
Here we go again. Weigh-in yesterday was 285 lbs. That's only three pounds less than what I weighed when I first started here on SparkPeople.
Not a surprise.

Oh Mother Nature - we have been on such good terms until now!
I managed to stop myself from "eating everything in sight" last time I Sparked, on October 8, but not for long.
I was expecting to start my TOM, about the same time that I last posted, but it still hasn't made an appearance - this could b... Read more

I had an epiphany today...
August 17th was my last officially tracked weigh-in.
August 20th was my last blog.
August 21st was the last time I tracked food.

Holy slow days at the office....
It's been so slow at the office since they announced the federal election here in Canada.

I am a Sabateur!
I had a great day on Monday. Made a new commitment to myself to stay on track. Drank all my water, did my cardio, ate well, and then at about 3 in the afternoon, I was craving "something" -- nothing specific, just "something"... Read more
Update on my last two weeks...
The good news is that I've been making sure to do my Sparking every day -- logging in, tracking food, exercise, and doing the minimal posting when I could. I've neglected to blog.
So, since July 23, a lot has happened -- the biggest, of co... Read more
I finally got around to moving everything into place in my "gym" room in the basement.
I bought some rubber puzzle mats and made a nice surface to do my workouts, on, I moved the treadmill to a spot that was more convenient, and I picked u... Read more
