This House Will Be Cheery This Christmas Even If I Have to Force It
Saturday, November 23, 2013      7 comments

I cannot bring myself to skip writing a blog entry, because I have it listed as a daily goal with a checkbox next to it. This I do for me, not to entertain, inform, or enlighten others -- though I must admit that I enjoy receiving comments ... Read more
Cold Weather Clothing
Friday, November 22, 2013      3 comments

This post is going to be all about warm clothing of various descriptions... First, the packable down jacket that I bought on Wednesday, I have now realized, is only good down to about freezing (0 degrees C, or 32 degrees F if you are in the... Read more
The December #SparkTheSeason Challenge
Thursday, November 21, 2013      3 comments

Well, I am going to put last night's Tai Chi ordeal behind me (see my previous post, "Social Awkwardness" if you are interested in the details). I've decided I like the list of goals in SparkPeople's December #SparkTheSeason Challenge. ... Read more
Social Awkwardness
Thursday, November 21, 2013      5 comments

Oy, yesterday at Tai Chi was... an ordeal. First thing yesterday morning, I wore myself out with a challenging session with my personal trainer. Then, after a relaxing lunch I wore myself out again traipsing around a mall. Don't get me wron... Read more
It's a Trap!
Wednesday, November 20, 2013      5 comments

Wednesday is my busy day, with training in the morning and Tai Chi in the evening. (That schedule lasts for only one more week and then my trainer is free on a Tuesday morning so I will take that time instead.) Usually on a Wednesday I will go o... Read more
The Sweater
Tuesday, November 19, 2013      5 comments

Trying to find a goal to carry me forward through the dark days of winter. I think I've lost all the weight I'm going to lose. My couple of days off from the gym saw my weight climb, even though my eating was between 1500-1600 calories a da... Read more
Short and Sweet
Monday, November 18, 2013      6 comments

Sometimes I have an idea in mind when I write a blog post, and sometimes... I don't. Sometimes I am just writing something to put a checkmark in a box on a list of goals. (It's worth a SparkPoint! Gotta get those SparkPoints!) Except, I rea... Read more
No, Strike That, I Meant "CHOCOLATE"
Sunday, November 17, 2013      5 comments

I don't think I've done too many "grateful" posts. I always seem to find other things to write about -- and sometimes I just kind of imply what I'm grateful for -- because in general I am happy, which if I dwelt on it I would say still feel... Read more
Is It Sunday Morning?
Sunday, November 17, 2013      4 comments

Didn't get much done today. Didn't go to the gym because I felt I needed one more rest day for whatever is going on with my back and or hip (that general area). It feels like it's getting a bit better now, though. No need to take pain medic... Read more
Living the Dream

CAVEAT: I do not have "pretty" feet. As a short woman with small feet, I will naturally have stubby toes. It just goes with the territory. As a short woman who has been through pregnancy, I have lost most of my arches, so my feet are now short... Read more
Workout Music
Thursday, November 14, 2013      2 comments

So, I tried voting on SparkPeople's Best Workout Songs of 2013, but I've never listened to most of the songs, and I'd never even heard of half of them. If they are not played on my favourite EDM station on satellite radio, then I am not interest... Read more
My Ho-Hum, Humdrum, Ordinary Life
Wednesday, November 13, 2013      4 comments

So last night we went out for dinner and a movie. Sushi and "Ender's Game". We went as a family of three, so it was a nice evening. I was low on my calorie count for the day, and it was cold outside, so I allowed myself to have some Hot & ... Read more
A Tuesday in November
Tuesday, November 12, 2013      5 comments

I've been going on about my vision collage in my status updates. Truth to tell, I am putting a lot of mental energy into it to deflect myself from putting mental energy into something else that is very negative. It's so hard. It h... Read more
This Too Shall Pass
Monday, November 11, 2013      3 comments

Today has not been a stellar day for me, my sparkly friends. I did get to the gym, so that was one good thing. Start with the good things, right? Then I went to the dentist to have an old cavity refilled. That part wasn't pleasant... Read more
Yesterday's Thrift Store Finds
Sunday, November 10, 2013      6 comments

Okay, so I have photos of a few of the better finds I made at the thrift store yesterday. First, the vintage coat with beaver fur collar*. I didn't realize until I saw the photo how a big fur collar at your throat can make your head look hu... Read more
