I've been on and off the Spark for a years now: losing, gaining, losing, gaining. Vicious dumb cycle. Had a few big wakeup calls over the last few weeks: BP 134/99 (ugh), saw a picture of myself and didn't recognize the person, cholesterol/tr... Read more

Slept in today, lounged around the house a while, tried to download some new running music, couldn't get it to work, gave up and went for a run anyway. All before lunch. 72 and sunny! Awesome Texas Weather! Ran almost all of the first tw... Read more

I am so impatient. I want it and I want it now. Instant gratification. my fatal flaw. I've always hated that about me. The good news is that I recognize it and have been able to stifle it this time. Perhaps, i'm just wiser in my ol... Read more

I dreamt the most vivid dream of fried apple pie last night. I remember being overcome with the smell of cinnamon and sugar. I bit into it and my gosh it was the best thing I've ever tasted... doughy goodness, sweet and sticky. Yummy!!! Fo... Read more

My 38th birthday is coming up, as is my 20th high school reunion. For some reason, I've been thinking about my long term health. I'm guessing that the "invincible" attitude of my youth is wearing off. I went to a health fair at work this week ... Read more

Yesterday, after working a chaotic *funfilled* 12 hour plus shift, I came home at 8pm and promptly gulped down dinner in less than two minutes flat. My wonderful husband is such a keeper.... grilled chicken, corn on the cob, cilantro-flavored ... Read more

This week has sucked bigtime. I haven't ran since Tuesday. I've been eating like a cow. I haven't had time to log my intake. I feel fluffy and tired. I've had a bunch of overtime and we've been super busy at work which leads to gulping dow... Read more
