Here it is! SUMMER!
It has been a nasty one here lately.. There have been floods and tornados all around the area.. luckily the tornados avoided us.. and we live on the 2nd floor so the flooding mostly avoided us..
However, during the summer I always attempt to become a runner.. and I unfortunately haven't been able to start this yet! Hopefully soon I will get a chance. My best friend found an app called Run! Zombies! that we are both planning to use to get more active. It sounds like a lot of fun so I can't wait to try it out!
I hope everyone is having a great summer!
Looking forward to seeing everyone's journies!! :)

    This year has definitely been one of weather downs, I think everyone's struggled with it.
Good luck playing with your new app - looking forward to a review.

Workout Games!

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Hey all!
I'm doing a springing into fitness challenge on the Done girls team..
This means we have challenges every week to get into healthy habits!
This week's challenge is to create a workout game and do it at least 2 times this week.
However.. I am not so super creative and just found some on pinterest..
I found a Big bang theory workout game! (My favorite show!) That I think I may just get a lot of use out of!!
I also found a How I met your mother and Jersey Shore game.. I think I may have to invite my friend Lisa over to do the Jersey shore one! Woo!!

Hope all is well with everyone!

    I'm doing the challenge too and need to start searching for a game. I suppose I can make one up, but I'm afraid I'll make it easy on myself! LOL

Long time no blog

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Hello All!
Its been 2 months since I have written a blog entry.. Naughty!!
Things have been going ok weight loss wise. I have basically had to start over in 2013 because I lost all progress I started to make in November over the holidays. I am FINALLY getting back into the mind frame of making good choices food wise and exercising. I joined some challenges in the sparkteams and that helps keep me accountable.
Hopefully everyone else is having a good 2013!

    Glad to see you still at it though. We all slip up, but the difference between the ones who do lose the weight and keep it off is that they never give up. They keep getting back at it again. You CAN do it. Just keep picking yourself up when you fall.

Pretty statusquo.. Not great but not bad.

Saturday, December 15, 2012

Its been awhile since I updated the blog so thought I would post a new entry. Things are going fairly well in spark land. I lead a pretty boring life all in all. I have been wearing my little fitbit faithfully and have been doing pretty well tracking my food. I have been doing my 10 minutes of exercise a day, but not much over that unfortunately. The past couple days I've been slacking but I will get back on track! Hope everyone else is doing wel!!!

Small victories

Friday, November 30, 2012

Well.. The scale has not moved as much as I would like recently. However, I had a small victory today!! I had an absolutely HORRIBLE night at work last night. So of course the first thing I think about is making it better with food. However, I sat down to ride my bike for 10 minutes instead and ended up riding 25 minutes! Woo!!! Plus I didn't eat baked goods or candy to make myself feel better!! Kind of a big deal for me! Exited.
Hope everyone else is having a great week!!

    That's great! Replacing emotional eating with exercise is a fabulous thing and is something I'm currently working on, so I understand what a huge acheivement this is!
