Well yesterday I picked up my son (he's almost 2 and weighs 31 lbs.) Welp, it happened. I felt the tweek but thought ok just be careful for the rest of the night. Well then my son decided to have a melt down getting him out of the car and wrestling him did it in. I was hunched over for the rest of the night. Luckily,... Wed, 18 Jan 2017 22:16:50 EST Back at it again..... So....I've been off track for a few months. (oops! <em>24</em> ) But I am very happy to say I am back on track and I'm determined to stay for a while. I have actually put nearly 10lbs back on over about 4 months :( But I am not letting it get me down. I have set a new goal and I am gonna hit it if not exceed it! I HAVE to do this and I will dadgumit! haha! <BR> <BR> Wish me luck!! <em>334</em> Tue, 28 Sep 2010 12:06:25 EST Start off to a good day! So this morning when I got to work I weighed myself. I was pretty scared since 2 nights ago I might have drank a little too much and ate junk :| So I was prepared to see the scale move...up. But low and behold it went down! I could not believe it! Not only was it great to see, but it was also the exact thing I needed to see to be rid of 60lbs!! Craziness! I know that my spark ticker only says like 45, but I had lost 15lbs before starting spark so I started with my current weight. <BR> <BR> ... Thu, 24 Jun 2010 11:59:22 EST Fat Burning Foods?! Okay so this morning I was getting ready for work. (boo) As I do every morning I was listening to my morning radio show. (106.1 Kiss FM) There is one girl on the show named Jenna that is always doing research on things that are interesting/helpful to know. <BR> <BR> Well this morning just happened to be about weight loss. I can't remember every little thing that was said, well because I was getting ready concentrating on not screwing up on my make up and well I suffer from CRS. (Can't Remem... Fri, 26 Mar 2010 11:19:47 EST Help! I'm stuck!!! I've hit a major plateau and I'm not sure what to do!! I want to get past this ASAP as summer time is coming up. My work out partner and I have been doing a lot of weight training lately, so I'm thinking it's time to start hitting the cardio HARDCORE!!! <BR> <BR> I want to get into running again, but I know this is TMI but I have LARGE breasts and even when I wear 2 sports bras or ones that are small they still seem to give me a hard time. Especially in the back department. <BR> <BR> Any... Mon, 8 Mar 2010 13:37:05 EST NBA All Stars Games Hello all!

I'm sitting at work right now waiting for 5 o'clock. <em>128</em> When I leave here I'm goin to work out with my sparkbuddy AMELIA! I have exactly 17 min to go. I am just thinking about what I need to do when I get there. I hope that the trainer Anthony helps us today. He always makes me sweat, which is a good thing.

Thu, 4 Feb 2010 17:48:40 EST It's official....I'm a nerd. Okay so tonight I skipped out on the gym and I just decided I would take my dog for a long walk then I would do a work out dvd. Well I did take Chyna for a walk as I do every night. But instead of a dvd....I'm almost embarrassed to admit this but it's hilarious....I jogged around my apartment for 10 min. I am a dork! But at least I did a little something. And the funniest part was I was singing the whole time to my dog that was looking at me like I was some crazy person! THEN I started sing... Tue, 3 Nov 2009 22:13:01 EST Sorry to those.... I just want to say sorry to those that have sent me comment and goodies and anything on my page and never heard a thank you from me! I promise it's not because I am not thankful, it's because I never know when I receive anything. I still can't figure out how to get notifications sent to my email about activity on my sparkpage. So when I am on here I try to remember to check everything like my picture comments, blog comments, goodies, page comments and everything else I can think of just in ca... Wed, 30 Sep 2009 00:42:29 EST 20 Things you didn't know about obesity. I came across this article this morning on MSN...first I read the one on skin, then found this one and I just had to share. Pretty crazy stuff. <BR> ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*<BR>~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* <BR> <BR> 1. Child-safety seat manufacturers are starting to make bigger models after a recent study showed that over 250,000 U.S. children age 6 and under are too fat to use them. <BR> <BR> 2. According to a study by the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale Universit... Mon, 21 Sep 2009 13:35:01 EST Differences.... OK! Well I am from a small town in Oklahoma, but I have moved to North Dallas almost 2 years ago. I noticed last time I went up for a family visit it wasn't as easy to eat healthy. It wasn't because it was easy to cheat since I was on a "minivacation." It was because there is NO healthy places to eat. Everything is like greasy-home-country cookin'! No wonder I am over weight lol. Oh yeah and it doesn't help that my mother never has groceries lol! So I'm constantly eating out when i'm ther... Fri, 4 Sep 2009 11:10:21 EST What I got into this weekend! Okay! So I'm just a little excited about what happened this weekend! While visiting my Mom this weekend...I remembered I had some old jeans in my old closet. I decided I would just try to see if I could get them over my hips...I thought I know I'll never get them buttoned but I'll be fine with getting them up to my waist! As I was putting them on I got that feeling you get when you're in the dressing room of a store and you think "well crap! since they are so tight on my legs there's no wa... Mon, 24 Aug 2009 11:32:25 EST Seeing results is PRIMO! I can't believe how much weight I have lost! Even though it's really not that much I just never thought I could even lose that! Okay well for the longest time I wasn't really seeing or feeling results...but now in my clothes it is actually showing. My pants are baggier and it feels awesome. Although I don't feel like I look just makes me happy to know that to some people I do look slimmer. I just really hope that I can keep this up!!! Thu, 16 Jul 2009 11:01:56 EST Feeling very pumped today! Okay so today I am feeling very motivated to do something that's gonna make me sweat! Yesterday I was very proud of myself, I went to the park alone without having someone else with me. And I think if it wasn't for my love of music i wouldn't have walked as far as I did. But since I had my ipod plugged in my ears playing all the friggin great songs I have on there, it was hard to stop. It was very peaceful even though the wind was about to knock me over too. haha. I didn't work up a huge s... Tue, 7 Apr 2009 15:21:25 EST
