It has been busy and acclimating to living with a man who snacks and entertains me... we have been eating! He has gotten into running and quickly lost 25 lbs - GO HIM! And I mean that... but my weight keeps adding on!

So, I'm starting with some streaks - 10 min of exercise and logging... let's see how many days in a row I can do :) GO SPARK!!!

Post Marathon 11/15/10
I logged my food for a long time, and it served me SO well. I felt well trained enough to drop that from my schedule as I focused on my running... ten pounds later - I have started logging again. It is tough to face, but for me the only way for me to ever lose weight is to log religously. So here I go - again. After maintaining 150-155 for the last 18 months+ I am now back up at 160 and that has got to end! So, now that I am done with the big 26.2 it is time to focus on cross training, strength training, and eating clean and correct! 140's here I come!

Post Half Marathon 08/18/09
After a two week hiatus following my Half Marathon (wahooo i did it!), I am back on track!!! I want to get some of this weight off and continue improving my running endurance. Spark, spark buddies, and running have drastically changed my life and allowed me to accomplish things I never thought possible! I look at myself and my potential in a whole new light, it is amazing what we are capable of!!!

New Start 01/05/09
Okay, got off kilter a little there working two jobs and dealing with holiday hectic-ness. . . back on track for the new year and definitely not going to do the second job next holiday season - too stressfull!!! Anyways, I gained about 7lbs and got way off track! Counting calories and committing to exercise was really working, so I am getting back to it! Next step is to plan some races so I have something to shoot for! Wish me luck and holler at me if you need support, the more the merrier and I always need new friends! Good Luck to all of us!!!

Initial Intro 04/08
Hi All, I have been trying (and semi-suceeding) to eat and live a healthier lifestyle. I have gotten into running a little and doing small races and eating healthier. I have trouble with consistency and need extra motivation, I am hoping this site will keep me on track!

If you.can't put the rest of the ice cream down the drain, put half of it back before you dig in. :-)

Thanks!! We are working on reconcililng (ie: he's been dating and all the other women suck, DUH!) but it's super stressful because I am totally used to always moving FORWARD and now I am in a total holding pattern while he sorts his life out. SO FRUSTRATING!!!
