Regular Coffee, 2 cup (8 fl oz)
(Coffee I promise your picture will be in the next blog!)

Breakfast TOTALS: 240


(I took a picture of the container that I LOVE to use to bring cereal to work. Milk goes in the bottom, cereal on top. It's great. Way more efficient than a thermos and a separate bowl. Also note my very cute lunch bag, lol)

EDIT: So many of you have asked, so here it is: the lunch bag is from Wal Mart of all places, and the cereal container I got from my neighbor who was selling from her son's school fundraiser -- but I think those can be found at places like Target, Wal Mart, etc.

We LOVE the Spark Cookbook and my hubby has been making the Quinoa-Flax Seed Pizza dough and he makes a special section for me without cheese. I love that man!

The pizza dough recipe is online, as a sneak preview to the Spark cookbook which is AWESOME and I suggest you buy it if you don't have it. Here is the link!:

*Chipotle Rice (3.5 oz serving), 0.5 serving

Dinner TOTALS: 329


Apples, fresh, 1 cup, quartered or chopped
Skippy Natural Creamy Peanut Butter, 1 tbsp

Evening Snack TOTALS: 169


(Note: I love my hubby for that last photo - not only did he make me my evening snack, but when I requested such a specific thing - apple slices with only 1 tbsp. of peanut butter AND asked him to photograph it, he scoffed and said he wasn't going to go that far. I didn't think he took the picture until this morning when I went to upload my pictures. What a sweetie.)

Here's my note from my nutrition tracker that I wanted to share, since a goal of this challenge is for everyone to see how others eat.

I ate a bite of an old fashioned dunkin donut, thinking I was making a good non-dairy choice, but then realized it probably was baked with milk -- so I threw the rest away and looked it up when I got home - yep, made with skim milk. I'm still counting this as Day 9 of my no dairy as I am making awesome choices and I consider this a small mis-step. If I start over again at Day 1 my perfectionism will kick in and I'll feel like a failure, which I am NOT.

This journey is a PROCESS. And although I had a small bit of skim milk, probably a trace amount, I am not going to punish myself for it, but will move on.

p.s. Dunkin Donuts - PLEASE give us some Vegan options! Baked goods taste just as good cooked with almond milk!

Take that first step...

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." ~ Lao-tzu

The past few weekends I've had VERY active weekends. And I had a blast. Two weekends ago we went out of town to Michigan and I got multiple workouts in every day. I gathered my family up to workout, too.

I ran with my sister one morning, walked with Leslie one afternoon, got a hike in, and then on Superbowl Sunday I did the Spark fun Superbowl Workout with my husband the entire game (those first downs killed me! 25 bicycle crunches each 1st down!).

Then this past weekend I went to a Chair Dance class with my other sister led by my good friend, the "Fitness Mistress".

Now I am considering becoming a certified Walk Leader for Leslie and teaching women how to start working out and becoming stronger.

And to think at the start of this journey I couldn't walk even a half mile with Leslie. At the beginning my ideal weekend would consist of sleeping in vs. getting up early for a run. That would be followed by more laying around, watching movies vs. getting up and walking, even if it is inside because it's too cold. Football games would be watched with a drink in hand, chips in the other, not running up and down the stairs and doing crunches.

The journey of 1,000 miles does indeed start with that one, first, single step.

I can't wait to inspire others to take the first step, if they haven't already.

SparkPeople 28-Day Bootcamp Review

Monday, February 13, 2012

SparkPeople chose me as one of the lucky bloggers/team leaders to receive the newly released "28-Day Bootcamp" DVD by Coach Nicole, and in return I need to post my review of it. A disclaimer: I received this DVD for free from SparkPeople and did not receive any form of payment for my review.

I love trying to complete the Spark Official 28-Day Bootcamps that are held here in the Spark community typically every January and in the spring -- I never finish, but I always love trying. In those bootcamps the videos are all online, but it's the same 7 videos rotated throughout the month.

At first I thought that's all this DVD would be, but then I put the DVD in and hit "play".

First of all, there are options! Yes, you can have your cake and eat it too. You can follow the 28-day plan which is in a cool calendar format (for those literal people like me), or you can pick from different timed segments - 12, 20 and 30 minute workouts. GREAT for busy moms like me, too.

I love that the cardio plus the boot-camp style circuit training burns more fat in less time (again, busy mom here!)

I LOVE the cardio intervals.

It's so much nicer to view it on my TV screen vs. my computer :)

There are three different intensity levels so you just pick your own speed and go with it.

I really enjoyed the 30-Minute Challenge Routine. This is like one of those combos at a Mexican restaurant. It's all in there and it's all so GOOD! Not just curls and squats, this mixture of cardio and ST will have your heart thumping and your body rocking. My husband did this one with me and he was dying! I had to encourage him to keep going.

The other women in the video do modify for you, too. The girl on the right is a lower intensity. I've read some reviews saying that beginners can't do it, but my hubby is a beginner and he was fine with the modifications - and a little reassurance from me.

You can pick up your DVD from Target AND you get 250 SparkPoints and a $3 off coupon if you go to the link below:


ENJOY! It's one of my new favorite workout videos. And I have a LOT.

I AM a Fighter (and January progress, February goals)

Thursday, February 02, 2012

First I want to look back at 2011 overall. In 2011 I lost 23.5 lbs. I had wanted to lose twice as much, but this weight is coming off slower and slower. YES I still made progress. BUT I am getting frustrated. I am getting tired. Earlier this week I started to lose hope.

Since reaching Onederland in August I’ve been gaining and losing the same 8 lbs. or so. The holidays did me in. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas I gained 6.5 lbs. this year. Last year I gained 9.5. So there IS improvement there. But in my mind I felt I did awesome during Thanksgiving. I DID do amazing. Yet I still gained. That put me on a downward slope to Christmas, where I didn’t do as well as I did for Thanksgiving because a part of me thought – what’s the point? If I’m going to gain anyway, might as well have fun doing it.

I had wanted to be at goal weight this month. That was in the summer. I have 20 more lbs. to go to goal weight and at this point I reset my goal date to my sister’s wedding in May. I didn’t want to restrict my calories any further, and I believe that my low calorie range might even be a reason I haven’t lost weight. I don’t know anymore. So I’m upping my calories to 1400 – 1750 per day and going to burn 2,000 - 2,700 calories per week.

Last year I lost 23.5 lbs. in an entire YEAR. I really would like to lose that by my sister’s wedding. I have 4 months and that is at the rate of losing 1 – 1.5 lbs. per week. That is DO-able.

I also think I have a boulder standing in my way. That is the old me, peering out at me from behind this huge boulder of losing 100 lbs. That old me is holding onto the rock, not wanting to let go. That old me doesn’t remember weighing less than 200 lbs., so the scale reflects that mentality. Up, down, in and out of Onederland. That old me needs to LET GO. To Let God, as I love to say. That old me needs to realize that it’s OK, the unknown may be a scary place but I will not get hurt. I used this weight as a cushion so that I couldn’t be hurt any more. But I am in a safe place and I don’t need that any more.

I know that inside of the NEW me is a fighter. I love to box, and each session I learn something new. You need to hit with your body, not your arms. The strength is in your stance. Keep your elbows in. Keep your hands by your chin. Stand straight. It’s a process of constant learning and while I’m hitting I need to remember all of these things. But after a time these patterns are woven throughout my brain and I simply HIT. I don’t try to correct it all at once because it’s a process and each session it gets more seamless. I will fight for this dream of mine to not be obese. I am not going to settle for being under 200. I am still not “healthy” by doctors standards. I cannot rest on my laurels.

The same with weight loss. All of the power is inside of me, and I need to remap my thinking about who I am. About what that looks like. I’ve never been the skinny girl. Well, when I was anorexic, OK. But that wasn’t the healthy girl, or the strong girl, THAT was the sick girl. I am not that girl any longer either. When my instructor at the gym says I am strong, I say, “No I’m not.” When he yells at me to hit with Power and I do – I self-consciously giggle and say “No, that wasn’t powerful” (truly I said this last night). I need to hear him when he says YES IT IS. I need to remap my thinking. YES I am powerful. YES I am strong. YES I can let the new inner me show on the outside as well as the inside. I don’t have to be afraid to hit hard, to show my power. It is not something that is meant to hide. It is something to embrace.

Looking back at losing 100 lbs. it almost looks like it was easy. When people ask me about it I act like it was no big deal, losing half of myself. I don’t REMEMBER the hard parts. It’s sort of like childbirth. Having one of my daughters naturally and the other with the aid of medication, I know the difference. That first birth was much more painful. But I don’t remember it. This journey can be painful sometimes. But I’m thinking it should be easy. It’s not easy. And I’m in a hard part right now. This plateau I’m in is rough. Five months of this yo-yo back and forth takes its toll on a girl.

But I AM a fighter. And I WILL get back up.

Now for the stats.


Start weight: 202
End weight: 199.5
Weight lost: 2.5

Note: I was 197 last week. Weight loss should have been 5 lbs….sodium and lack of exercise took my nice loss away.

Total weight lost this year: 2.5 lbs.
Goal weight progress: 21.5 more lbs. to go to reach goal weight!
Total weight lost: 98.5

Yellow = GOOD. Crossed out means no workout. Too many X's in January. Only 3 bad eating days, but they were BAD.


emoticonI reached 1,068 fitness minutes in January. My goal was 1,000 – I exceeded that.

emoticonI completed three strong weeks of boot camp.

emoticonI boxed with MEN.

emoticonI got my hubby to do boot camp with me and he’s wanting to get healthy now, too.

emoticonIn boxing I was referred to by my instructor as a “hard hitter” and “strong”.

emoticonI ran in the snow for the first time. (LOVE Yak Trax!)

emoticonI went sledding with my family, lugging my toddler up the hill over and over again.

emoticonI dreamt of push-ups (not the ice cream kind either!)

emoticonMy arms are shaping up and I have muscles where I didn’t before.

emoticonI ran in 14 degrees/9 windchill.

emoticonI boxed with my instructor.

emoticonSince starting boxing I've added 4 lbs. onto my weights.

emoticonI can now not only do a plank, but a straight arm plank, which means you alternate sides while lifting your arm up. Kind of like this (see demo below), but switching sides. Never thought I’d be able to do something like that!



emoticonI am .9 away from going from “obese” to simply “overweight” on the BMI scale.

emoticonMy v02 score went up by 3 points, I am now in the “Excellent” category!

emoticonI am in a size 12 pant and jean now!

emoticonI was the Sunny Gal of the Week!

emoticonI celebrated my 5-yr Sparkversary!

emoticonI entered Onederland (again). Third time is a charm!

emoticonI now officially have a workout partner, my friend Jackie who I blogged about over the summer. She used to intimate me but now we both encourage each other and she inspired me to try boxing and I love it.


emoticonSlacking off in workouts will lead to weight gain for me.

emoticonA few bad days in a month equals weight gain. Consistency is key.

emoticonThis weight loss journey is like childbirth – hard and painful, but worth it.




Weight goal: To lose 5 lbs. this month.


GOAL: Burn 2700 cals. per week:

Monday boxing 500
Tuesday run 525
Wednesday Walk & kickboxing 200
Thursday run 525
Friday Long walk & kickboxing 300
Saturday run 525
Sunday walking and yoga: 125
Adds up to 2700.

In December and January I started back doing the Spark boot camp. Both times I puttered out after Week 3. It is my goal to finish it out and have that trophy on my Spark page.

I also want to incorporate yoga back into my routine.

I want to be able to do a reverse plank – currently I can’t lift my butt off the ground.


1400 - 1750 calories
10 glasses of water per day.
Only 2 cups of coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon.
NO dairy – going cold turkey. (working on this!)
Get all of my freggies in.
Popcorn – break out the air popper and make it truly healthy. Then I can have 2 bowls.
Wine – only 1 – 2 glasses on special occasions. No more casual drinking.
Track all of my food into the fitness tracker and check my stats nightly to see where I need to tweak anything.

    You ARE strong. I relate so much to what you've written. At this stage in the journey, the pounds come off excrutiatingly slowly. A good month for me is 2lb loss. It's hard to stay motivated and keep going sometimes, but when I ask myself if it's all worth it, the answer is always the same: YES! I keep reminding myself that this is a lifelong process of learning how to care for my body & keep it healthy, so it doesn't really matter how fast the pounds come off... but wouldn't it be nice if they'd come off a little faster?!

    Man, I'm going through a lot of the same stuff. I've given up and come back about four times. [sigh] I can't truly bring myself to give up, but I keep wanting it to be easier, too. Ugh.

    I totally petered out on Bootcamp after week 3 too. Keep saying I'm gonna finish it, but I don't know if I will. I feel like you and I have been in the same place for a while now. 5 months? Yep - that's about it. the 8 pound yo-yo - I wanna kill it. But maybe you and I both need to stop fighting so hard for it and just let it happen. I think the harder we fight, the more we are resisting the parts of ourselves that are trying to speak up and say "Hey! There's something you need to fix here before I can do any more for you." And if we weren't fighting so hard, we might be able to hear those parts, focus on them and fix them so we can move on. I dunno. Just a theory. But I know I'm hung up at 186 pounds because I'm hung up on other things that need to be addressed before I'm gonna be any smaller. I need my weight so I can keep being a "heavy hitter". And I need to figure out why that is.
