Frankie Manning died this morning. He was 94 years old, about to turn 95, and most of you have never heard of him, but he changed my life. Frankie was one of the original Lindy hoppers at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem, pre-WWII. He and his... Read more

...but today is the last day of classes, and I have all my finals within the next few days. This either means I will be more absent from SP than I would like, or it means that I'll be on here ALL THE TIME because it's a procrastination tool tha... Read more
Reminders to myself
Tuesday, April 21, 2009      2 comments

1) You're doing so well! You aren't really losing weight, but you're also already at a healthy weight, and you're more concerned about eating better, anyway. You're doing a very good job of that. 2) People apparently read your blog! It's... Read more
Pluses and minuses

Let's begin with some entries on the plus side. I walked for an hour and a half this morning! I ate a good breakfast! (Kashi GoLean Crunch is amazing stuff, but it takes a very, very long time to eat.) I had a nice, leisurely shower! I was ... Read more

Well, even though I did have a fairly exciting Friday, that meant I didn't have time to post a blog entry. Saturday, I worked all day, then had a migraine that lasted through half of Easter Sunday. Yesterday, I was all set to get a lot done, t... Read more
Getting off the couch
Thursday, April 09, 2009      0 comments

Today, I got off the couch, but not enough. Tomorrow will be better. Tomorrow I will also have an interesting blog entry (perhaps in part due to getting off the couch!). I just want to check in with myself every day that I can, even if I have... Read more
Busy week
Wednesday, April 08, 2009      0 comments

Well, it's been a week since my last blog, and I've been so busy I haven't even had time to say how busy I've been. Things are calming down now, though, so here I am to tell you that I haven't gone away again. Yay! I've not been eating as wel... Read more
A fool for April
Wednesday, April 01, 2009      0 comments

Oh, today has been a wonderful day. I woke up (comfortably, not screaming in my head for five more minutes of sleep) early enough to do a full stretching routine while my coffee brewed, listening to some great low-key African music. The weathe... Read more
Still truckin'

As we ALL know, it's hard when you're so good for a week or two, and you see no result on your scale. I don't have a lot of weight to lose; I'm at a completely healthy weight, but I'm happier and feel better overall at the lower end of my weigh... Read more
Shy and retiring
Wednesday, March 25, 2009      4 comments

I'm good at SparkPeople. It's all online, so I don't have to worry about being shy, I can make friends at my own pace, and I can type things out a million times until my words say exactly what I want them to say. I'm good at the internet in ge... Read more
Today was harder
Tuesday, March 24, 2009      0 comments

I had a horrific sinus headache today from my nasty allergies, so I wasn't nearly as productive as I've been the past few days. I am feeling motivated to get a lot done tomorrow, since I got nothing done today outside the bare essentials. I di... Read more
Dancing along
Monday, March 23, 2009      0 comments

Tonight's a dance night. I love dance nights. I get to see my friends, I get to DANCE (one of the deepest loves in my life), I get lots of fitness minutes without even trying, and tonight, I even get to teach. I love teaching people to dance.... Read more
Day two of renewing my SP vows
Sunday, March 22, 2009      1 comments

I really have no idea what makes me fall by the wayside, or why it's so easy. I love this site, I feel so much better when I'm eating within its guidelines, and tracking my nutrition and fitness really makes me want to eat healthier and exercis... Read more

I sure didn't get enough sleep last night, but I got new groceries this morning (healthy, delicious things!), ate really well today, took all my vitamins, washed my face the right way, cleaned up, had a good day at work, and am generally pleased... Read more
One more try
Friday, May 30, 2008      2 comments

This is my third attempt at a blog entry today. The other two were deleted as I tried to post them, so this will be even more truncated than my second attempt. I'm not dead. I definitely have had a very difficult past few months, and the... Read more
