Weight loss better known as life changes... [Apr. 5th, 2007|05:07 pm]

[I am |work]
[I feel |contentcontent]
[I hear |computers humming]

So, I am working to lose a whole bunch of weight and just generally be healthier. This whole battle has been a part of who I am for way too long and I am tired of talking about it. I would wrather just go away somewhere for 6 months and blow through 80 lbs, but since life does not work that way unless you are rich and famous, I will be doing the best that I can here.

I found Spark People last year or possibly even in late '05 and used it actively for a while. Since I was there they have upgraded the site, brought in more features, enhanced their food databses and broadened the site to deal with life mannagement as well as diet management. It has great tools fro goal setting, weight loss, making life changes, managing stress, changing the way you sleep. Plus they have forums and something sort of like yahoo groups that is built into the site.

Best thing about it? copletely free. I love free websites that make my life better. So I htought I'd share with you all. Here is my spark page. If you decide to join and it asks you who referred, you, mention shrinkinghilly so I get points!

SO yeah. Just a PSA. Not really much of an update after all.

I'm not dead, just BUSY with graduate school and working and hanging out with Astor and Roxi and Gideon. Life is full and life is fun and I just registered for my summer classes- last semester before practicum! I can't believe how fast this degree is going. 2008 will see me an MS. It doe snot seem real and is both exciting and terrifying.

So whats going on with me? oh, I don;t know, not much really. Too busy to be interesting. I did finally get a computer that interfaces with my scanner so I was able to scan in some pictures of my tawny self. Check out my new layout: it is a beautiful commission piece that daroneasa did for me at MFF this year.

What else?

Not much really. It all smooths out into a normal kind of a life.

Today it is warm and smells of spring. I can hear the train in the distance and the sound of birds. My cat cheaps to herself and breathes the air. Its a good day.

"all proverbs are better If you replace one of the words with 'lion'."

Just goes to prove that Lions are superior in every way *nod*

Better your mind in the new year:


Some friends and I are doing a reading and writing challenge together. If you are interested in something like 50bookchallenge that is smaller and has a writing component, come on over and join us. It all started because I was looking for a good new years resolution and now it has become the nucleus of an on line book club almost.

I personally am reading at least 50 books this year none of which can be cheezy romance or fantasy novels and 12 of which must be non fiction. I don't have the writing part all mapped out yet, but there will be something :)

Wish me luck.

Check it out.

Christmas eve has a special magical sucking exhaustion! I don't know what it is but it seems to be some sort of magical power wherein I am almost comatose as i write this even though it's only 11:49. Goodnight world I suppose. Christmas will dawn while Leandra lies sleeping.

[I hear |snoring cats]

Spent my Christmas eve with the aunts (my mother has 5 sisters, all but 2 single) eating ham and scalloped potatoes, opening gifts, and watching with a smile while they drank Manhattans and gossiped about family and friends.

Shining moments of awesome: I am finally old enough and pernicious enough that I got to make an actual point in conversation where my know it all aunt Joan conceded to me. *preens* And more importantly everyone got along and had lots of fun together.

Staggering moment of Awkward: Know it all aunt Joan asked me if I knew what a Wiccan was, then went on to tell us how she had one in her class once (she's a college professor - Russian studies or something like that?) and how the girl was depressed and obviously very very troubled in her life and confused... you know, cause she was Wiccan.

Then we came home and had our little present tradition of opening Christmas pajamas - my whole extended family on mom's side has this. It's the one night a year that i don't sleep naked :Op

Finally, slow but surely, it is beginning to feel like a holiday.

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate it, Blessed late Yule to those of us who celebrate that and happy winter holiday of your choice to all the rest.

Blessed be, sweet dreams, sugar plums.
