One last post to say good-bye and then I am gone. I'll stay gone for as long as it takes to get my Spark back. Being gone might be permanent, but I don't know. I need to get back to basics, and, as you know, SparkPeople has a lot of extras ... Read more

I think I was addicted to SparkPeople. In the way that people get addicted to activities. Or maybe the habit was just so ingrained I didn't notice how integral all the little things were to running my life. Well, whatever it was, something ... Read more

This weekend I have actually been doing a lot of knitting. Watching old movies and knitting. I saw some old Elizabeth Taylor classics, "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" with Paul Newman and "A Place in the Sun" with Montgomery Clift. Here is the res... Read more

Today the Rhodiola started working, in that I went to the gym this morning and did a full strength-training-plus-cardio workout, AND the sky outside clouded over and everything turned gray halfway through the day... but I did not take a nap. ... Read more

(I am taking a cue from Deadmau5 for my blog title today.) Yikes! I haven't written since Monday. That's so unlike me. I had a visit with a health practitioner associated with a new health food store that just opened up about a mile fr... Read more
An Ordinary Monday

Okay so this is one of those times where my goal of writing a daily blog entry is a drawback. At the moment, I feel I have nothing to write. It was an ordinary Monday. Nothing unusual happened, good or bad. The early part of the day was su... Read more

Today as a family the three of us went to a city about an hour's drive away, one of the cities where my son has been accepted to college. (In two weeks we are taking a campus tour in another city which is a four-hour drive away, where he has als... Read more
That Awkward Age

February is a weird month for using the cardio equipment at the gym. Well, for me anyway. I mean, because it's my birthday month. So every time I do the part where I enter my age and weight, I become all too acutely aware that that (age) number ... Read more

I am taking positive steps to get my health and my mood under control. For two days in a row now, I've gone out walking in the cold. I get exercise, sunshine, and fresh air. Well, sometimes the sunshine is in short supply, depending on what... Read more

I went for a walk outdoors today. I really needed it. Most of the snow piles are over my head. It was kind of fun to walk through areas where people who own snowblowers had cleared these straight paths, shearing the sides of the snowba... Read more

Went to the gym this morning, but (and here is where a trend in my thinking continues to reveal itself) I am losing any sense of focus I once had. I really am not sure why. Maybe it was the 8 (more) inches of snow we got today. My bac... Read more

I am not feeling right today. Something is "off" with me, physically. I am keeping track of it in a longer version of this post which I have kept separately in a document on my computer. I had to cancel my PT appointment this morning becaus... Read more

I've been trying to find images to decorate my page for Valentine's Day. But the trick is, I want to stay within a Hogwarts/Slytherin theme, and that makes it more difficult. Oh well, I'm still working on it, with the idea of finding three ... Read more

Today we had another snow storm. Luckily I got to the gym with DH first thing. I then came home and... Crashed. I did manage to make it to my bed and under the covers first, though. Which is what happens when the pressure is... Read more

My maintenance weight set point seems to have gone down a pound. I'm still "overweight" though. Yup. I've got my BMI down to 25.1, which counts as overweight, wh... Read more
