I started a virtual walk across the country on March 1. I had two inspirations. First was America On the Move. This is a great program, but you are limited to the trails provided. My second inspiration was a team walk across the country on t... Read more
8 Week Battle #5 Begins
Tuesday, August 04, 2009      11 comments

Yesterday I began my third 8 week battle. It is funny that the person who introduced me to this battle has since left SparkPeople. The good news is that I have met some truly awesome people on this team. The bad news is that I have been yo-yo... Read more
RIP Frank McCourt

This blog has nothing to do with weight loss. Maybe it does indirectly, only in the sense that it relates to the theme that all things are possible with the right amount of determination. I was truly shocked and saddened when I signed onli... Read more
A little off track
Sunday, July 05, 2009      7 comments

This was kind of a strange weekend. It was great to have the holiday, but I definitely went off track with my eating and lost some focus. Yesterday we went to the Mets/Phillies game in Philadelphia. It was the first time I was ever at a g... Read more
Michael Jackson
Sunday, June 28, 2009      10 comments

For some reason his death has really hit me hard. I am not sure why; I almost pride myself on not being any sort of groupie. Objectively I tell myself that if I died he wouldn't care, so why should the opposite be true? I always liked his mus... Read more
A weekend of wine
Tuesday, June 23, 2009      6 comments

I am back from my much anticipated weekend in the Napa Valley. In a word, it was awesome. And WAAAAY too short. My brother and sister in law have been married 25 years today. As childless professionals, they are pretty well off. They li... Read more
Blog Prompt - Do I force myself to eat healthy foods that I don't like?
Tuesday, June 09, 2009      7 comments

The answer is a qualified "no". Without question, I love to eat and got myself into this mess because of that. However, I really can't imagine going through life without enjoying food. And to be honest, I don't think that's a bad thing. ... Read more
Springsteen #2
Friday, May 22, 2009      5 comments

So last night I went to my second Springsteen concert in less than a year. Prior to that, I had never been to one, so it's not like I do this all the time. We had tickets for a concert at the end of July in Giants Stadium. Unfortunately, due... Read more
A disappointing anniversary
Wednesday, May 13, 2009      11 comments

On May 15, 2008, I wrote a blog here (my first, I think) about how thrilled I was with the 40 pounds I lost. And so much ahead of schedule. Well, here it is a year later, and I have only lost about 4 additional pounds. This is after gaining b... Read more
What is your biggest fitness accomplishment so far?
Tuesday, April 28, 2009      5 comments

I know this was actually last week's blog prompt, but I never answered it. Like so many others on Spark, exercise was never a big part of my life. As a child, I discovered that I did very well in school. When I was in first grade, I was ... Read more
Yankee Stadium - Part 2
Thursday, April 23, 2009      5 comments

Ok, I've been giving this one a lot of thought. Anyone who follows baseball knows that this was a Yankee loss of historic proportions (22-4, including a 14 run second inning). Maybe it is best if I don't dwell on the game or the Yankees at th... Read more

We are going to the new stadium on Saturday!!! Late afternoon game, supposed to be in the 70s, should be great. Let's just hope they don't get pounded like they did today. ... Read more
Sick Day
Saturday, April 11, 2009      4 comments

I was sick all day today. I developed a headache shortly after I woke up. I would say a migraine, but I don't think it was quite as bad as a migraine. But similar in certain ways. This has happened before but not too often. The last one I r... Read more
Some Little Slip-Ups
Saturday, April 04, 2009      8 comments

I have definitely slipped up and had more sugar this week than I would have liked. This was in part because of the death of a cousin (DH's cousin, actually). It sent me into a bit of a tailspin. I slipped up at the repast and did not turn awa... Read more
My Sugar Battles
Sunday, March 29, 2009      10 comments

Without going into a lot of detail, they have actually been pretty good. I've made a lot of progress in the last month or two as far as fighting my sugar demons is concerned. I've drastically reduced my intake of refined sugar, and I am very p... Read more
