Solar Powered
Monday, September 28, 2009      1 comments

Growing up, my dad joked that I was solar powered, but it wasn't until a few years ago that I realized that there was more truth to his statement than I had ever thought. It was a really rough winter for me, in a lot of ways--not only was I soc... Read more
It's Alive!!!! Plus Some Short Term Goals
Wednesday, September 23, 2009      4 comments

Heheh. Or at least a facsimile of it *grin*. I'm finally feeling better--not 100% yet, but better than I had been. Today is really the first stay in over a week when I was feeling at all like myself, which is a good sign. Thank you, eve... Read more
Quick Update
Thursday, September 17, 2009      6 comments

I just wanted to let people know that I'm still alive and will respond to everyone's comments eventually. I've been feeling under the weather--nothing serious, just my allergies crossing the line into a sinus infection. It happens, no big deal... Read more
Angel or Devil?
Saturday, September 12, 2009      4 comments

This came up in a e-conversation with NITAFROMCT (sorry you're getting it twice, NITAFROMCT) and it occurred to me that maybe I should share it with others. For one thing, I can't be the only one struggling with some variation on this issue. F... Read more
Fitness Dilemmas and Zoo!
Saturday, September 12, 2009      4 comments

On a completely frivolous side note, there are times when I can be really slow. I was catching up on some of my comments and realized that other people's blogs are different colors--not just that they have pictures for backgrounds. So I realiz... Read more
Getting Back on the Wagon?
Thursday, September 10, 2009      5 comments

The last week or two have not been very good, as far as healthy living. I have not exercised in over a week--probably closer to two. I haven't recorded what I ate for most of that time. I had insomnia for what seemed like forever (more like t... Read more
Health care and Not So Great Week
Friday, September 04, 2009      5 comments

"No one should die because they cannot afford health care, and no one should go broke because they get sick. If you agree, please post this as your status for the rest of the day." I saw this on MahouNeko's status. I don't normally get int... Read more
Insomnia etc. Update
Tuesday, September 01, 2009      4 comments

First, Thank you everyone (Rain454, Saasha17, Raggarwalax, Swal0701, Jantwo, etc) for your support. I try to be positive, especially when things aren't going so well, but knowing that when I do get fed up and exhausted that I have all of you th... Read more
Not so great weekend
Tuesday, September 01, 2009      6 comments

This weekend was really busy, with among other things two parties that we had promised to attend (a housewarming party of a good friend and the birthday party of my father-in-law). I thought I had been really responsible as far as food goes--I ... Read more
Color Personality Test Results
Monday, August 31, 2009      1 comments

I love taking personality tests, just for fun. This one was entertaining though I confess it doesn't sound much like me at all. Results: Your Existing Situation: "Organized and detail-oriented, she has a very precise and methodica... Read more
Spark Streaks Work
Saturday, August 29, 2009      2 comments

Well, spark streaks work--or at least they can help motivate me at least. Because today I swear the only reason I went to the fitness center at all was because I needed to get at least another 15 minutes of exercise in this week not to screw up... Read more
Mixed Report Card
Tuesday, August 25, 2009      2 comments

I just realized that I haven't posted in awhile. Last week was really busy. I didn't meet my goal of writing as much as I wanted to, but at least I got some work done and it's a start. Any progress is still progress, and while this week isn't... Read more
Chapter Done and Articles of Interest
Tuesday, August 18, 2009      5 comments

Yesterday I was really running behind on my "schedule," but I still managed to not only get work done on my dissertation (later than I had wanted to, and it meant ignoring my poor husband for the most part when he got home from work, but I worke... Read more
Words of Wisdome?
Monday, August 17, 2009      4 comments

Last night I had a strange fragmented dream, which I won't bother to describe here, other than to say that at one point I turned to a friend and said "I need to love my body now, so it's important for me to dress in ways that make me feel good a... Read more
Lifestyle, not Diet
Sunday, August 16, 2009      3 comments

I did not, I confess, come to Sparks with the intention of dieting. I don't really like the concept of dieting; it always made more sense (or at least a lot more sane and practical) to attempt to eat reasonably healthy but not to worry overly a... Read more
