I was feeling done...finished...bamboozled!
I said something of the sort to my husband, who always has a comment, and he said... Are you done? Stick a fork in it!
I sighed (old jokes! sheesh!) and shortly after, found this site, all because I was searching for SOMEONE who could tell me how many calories are in 2 little Cuties (tangerines). So I decided to stick a Spark in it instead!

I just keep on swimming....swimming...swimming...

And speaking of swimmingswimmingswimming...I am still swimming. Part of me feels like just throwing in the towel, then the other part signed up for Fitness Camp at the end of October. I am a little amazed at myself for taking that on but it helps me feel like I can do this.
I was ready to just give up. I have a job that makes it really difficult to keep track so I am either working my brains out or home recovering. I love my job...I just need to manage things better and preplan so when I am out on the river with no cell access I am still ready.
So when my weight started creeping back up and the other diet was way too restricted to believe, I decided to get back to basics.
Time to stick a SPARK in it!

    HI! Whoa, that's a lot of driveway you have!!! How's it going?
    I just got done with a spin class-started about a month ago, and it's tough, but worth it...now I'm wondering about my 'food' for the day-that's my downfall!!!
    Are you going to the auto show this weekend???
    Enjoy the 'nice' weather-more snow on the way...!!! emoticon

    Thanks for stopping by my page and for your comments. They help. And I just finished a 13.76 mile 68 minute bike ride. That's an average of 12.1 mph. So I feel good about that. I just forced myself to go out and do it.

    I love your sense of humor! Welcome to the St. Louis team and to Spark! You've come to the right place for support & answers to questions you may have. The site itself has seemingly unlimited resources, but I love the 'Sparkers' themselves, because they are what have really made the difference for me! Please let me know how I can help & I can't wait to watch you progress in your quest for better health!
