Well, Emily and I never got to do our dance/hooping videos to celebrate my 100 pounds lost because, let's face it, life jumped in and postponed that victory. (EDIT: That means I've put back on a few pounds and am no longer at 100 lbs lost. Sorry to confuse some of you.)
BUT, I finally got some hooping footage up for y'all! My friend is obsessed with Reba McEntire and wanted to submit a video for a contest she's having to be in an upcoming music video.
Here's what I put together for that:
PS: The bloopers are my favorite part!
Much love and health to my SparkFriends!

I'm ashamed that I've been gone from Spark for a month! I love SP, but now that I have a smartphone, I'm rarely on the computer anymore and, unfortunately, the SP app isn't conducive to socializing. Let's get on that, SP, mmm'k?
I started a new challenge this weekend on healthy wage.com … It's similar to dietbet.com that I've done before, but this one is a team challenge with a larger reward for winning. I'm excited to get some weight off before we start trying for baby (in October).
Sorry for being gone for so long, friends. I've started a blog that, so far, has been primarily grief focused. But I anticipate that it will morph over time. Feel free to take a peek:

Every day is a struggle... I'm sure my mood will lift considerably when Spring comes. I always get a *touch* of seasonal depression during this time of year. Illinois is having one of the worst winters on record and it sure ain't helping anything! I also realized yesterday (while I was sobbing in the gym locker room Ugh) that there's a general sadness over my life - obviously - but it's because every passing day is another day FURTHER from the last time I saw my parents. Instead of feeling better (time heals all blah blah blah), I'm feeling worse because I'm feeling further and further away from my parents: our interactions, words exchanged, etc. It feels like being separated from a loved one for vacation, deployment, whatever, and the longer you're apart, the more you miss this. My only problem is there's no "end" to this separation. I have to live the rest of my life without the two people who raised me - whom I turned to for advise and guidance.
I've realized that I probably re-joined the 5% Challenge too soon. I'm not capable of being an effective teammate at this point. I still get on and log my exercise on the few days each week that a manage some, but my LTGL points are non-existent. Plus, I'm up five pounds since starting the challenge! Oiy. Part of that is that my eating is not in check - and part of it, I'm sure, is because my only exercise has been strength training. Well, one thing at a time...
And then I find something like this immediately after finishing this blog and tell myself to keep going...
