I am re-learning what it's like to have a short hairstyle. I mean, some people might think that the chin-length bob I had before was short, but there is a world of difference between that and what I have now, which is a sort of top-heavy sh... Read more
The Joke
Sunday, September 08, 2013      4 comments

Is it as good a joke if the joke's on you? Can you still enjoy it? In step class, our irreverent instructor Dan the Man played a joke on the whole class. He was telling us about a golf tournament he went in, and about his golfing buddies (I... Read more

I just realized that the photo my son took of my husband and me does not do justice to said Little Black Dress. So here is a duck-faced selfie that does a better job of showing off the dress. ... Read more
My LBD is a Size 6 (Not 16)
Saturday, September 07, 2013      3 comments

This time last year, if I'd had a little black dress (LBD), it would have been a size 16. And I would have been happy, because I was on a roll with the beginning of my weight loss journey. The little black dress I wore to my anniversary din... Read more

Sometimes the Still, Small Voice Has a Great Big Fist to Punch You With
Wednesday, September 04, 2013      3 comments

This comic (see link below) expresses how I sometimes feel about writing, especially when I am in Tell Mode -- that facet of existence where instead of experiencing life in the moment, I see everything I do as if I were telling it to people like... Read more
Exhausting Day!
Tuesday, September 03, 2013      5 comments

Today was the first day back to school and I am exhausted. I don't even go to school! But I have good reason to be tired. I did a lot today. I got The Boy up early and got myself ready for the gym. The routine is supposed to be t... Read more
Why Is My Purse Always So Full of STUFF?
Monday, September 02, 2013      6 comments

Today being a holiday, the gym did not open until 8:00 AM. DH and I are used to being able to beat the crowds by doing our workouts very early in the morning, but of course today we had no choice but to be there with everyone else. I surviv... Read more
The Limitations of the Scale
Sunday, September 01, 2013      2 comments

Well, I sort of did okay on my August #backontrack challenge. I got stymied towards the end by road trips and my personal trainer's disrupted schedule. For me to succeed at doing weight training three times a week, I need my timing to be more pr... Read more

Good Morning, Sparkland!

I was so tired yesterday I didn't even write a blog entry. For once, my FitBit has told me I got 8 hours of sleep last night. Officially, 8:00.00.08 or something like that. There were only two eights, anyway, one at each end. DH d... Read more

Personal Training Tuesday and a big non-scale victory (NSV) today! My personal trainer (PT) hasn't done the "circuit" chest press machine with me for a while (by which I mean the ride-on machine in the circuit area that is used mainly by fe... Read more
Thought for the day: Hats
Monday, August 26, 2013      2 comments

This is something I spent time writing today, and I don't have the heart to erase it, even though I won't complete it. So I might as well post it. I may still write more (a different post) today. It's one of those days, I guess. ----- ... Read more
