SPASTASTIC's SparkPeople Blog SPASTASTIC's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community One month coffee free! So I would get coffee (sometimes iced ones with whipped cream) about 4 times a week. Medium sized sugary drinks packed with calories. I always had a late day crash and felt jittery at bedtime but on the days I didn't have it I'd get serious headaches and feel really bad. I hated that I felt so dependent on the caffeine that I decided enough was enough. Coffee for me should be a small once in a while treat, not a staple of my diet. Withdrawal sucked and lasted a few days but I stuck it o... Thu, 24 May 2018 14:12:57 EST Joined the gym. I was a member of a gym that was about 20 minutes away, even longer in rush hour, so I never got there. But there is a gym that opened a mile away from my house and so I made the switch yesterday and signed up there. My boyfriend is a member as well so tonight I went with him for my first workout. It was 30 minutes on the treadmill and I'm very happy with it. Before I gained my weight back from when I got down to 236 I was spending an hour or more at times doing cardio and I know I will ... Wed, 7 Mar 2018 21:09:26 EST I'm still here! I haven't blogged in a while but I'm still around. :) Hope everyone is doing well. <BR> <BR> I just turned 34 on the 4th of this month and decided that I am really going to push to change and get the healthy and strong body I've always wanted. I've told myself that this year will be the year I reach my goals, no and, ifs, or buts about it! I'm in love with a great guy, someone I've been friends with for 5 years, and we shared our first anniversary as a couple back in July. Things are ... Mon, 18 Sep 2017 00:15:35 EST NSV! Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> Today was veeeery windy and cold but I had a lot of errands to run so I needed to head out into it almost all day long. Normally I always would stop before getting into my car and unzip my coat so I could sit down (very annoying) but I was in such a rush to escape the cold I hopped in without even thinking about unzipping and my coat fit perfect! I noticed only after I put my seatbelt on and I was totally shocked. I'm so happy that my clothes are fitting better, e... Sun, 12 Mar 2017 00:31:17 EST Stress ate. Today I found out my dad likely needs another vein surgery on his leg. He had a bypass about two years ago, and while this surgery isn't supposed to be as invasive or taxing it still really scares me. After his appointment we got breakfast and I ended up with a platter. Fried eggs, two sausage patties, fried potatoes, toast. I didn't eat the toast and tossed half of the potatoes, so it wasn't totally terrible and I can be proud that I had SOME self control. I wish I had picked a healthie... Wed, 8 Mar 2017 15:08:03 EST Back in action! <BR> Hi all! <BR> <BR> I haven't posted a blog in quite a while but I have been popping on Spark a few times a week just to read articles and stuff to stay motivated. Hope everyone is doing well! <BR> <BR> After gaining back 64 of the 92 pounds lost I felt really ashamed of myself and depressed. Well, I felt depressed when I was regaining all of that, but it didn't help any. I was so close to being under 200 pounds for the first time since I was a child and I just sabotaged myself. Sub... Mon, 6 Mar 2017 15:09:32 EST Still going! Hey everyone! <BR> <BR> I spent this morning in the ER with my dad. He fell on the deck and hurt his leg to the point he was unable to walk. Fortunately there is no break but his knee is badly sprained. He needs to rest it and will go see a orthopedist Friday morning. He was in the hospital for two weeks back in the summer for leg and vein issues so I'm just very glad it wasn't way worse! <BR> <BR> Anyways. I feel like it is my first day really on track in two weeks (PMS and TOM hit).... Mon, 18 Apr 2016 16:46:34 EST March goal! February wasn't that great for weight loss but that's okay. I maintained my January loss of 7 pounds. I was trying new things but decided that I really needed to get back to the basics of what I did when I first lost 90 pounds before regaining some of it. I went back and read my old food logs and blogs and started to feel less overwhelmed by everything. I know what works for one person will not work for me, so I need to trust my own plan and stick to it! <BR> <BR> My March goal is to los... Fri, 4 Mar 2016 18:39:17 EST Goals. My goal is to lose 47 pounds by my birthday in September. That will finally get me to the 100 pounds lost mark. I got sooo close before (90 pounds lost!) but I slipped and regained weight. When I reach my goal I will weigh 228 pounds. From there I want to get down to 199 so I can be in Onderland. :) I think 75 pound lost by the end of the year is doable. On top of that I've already lost 7 pounds since Jan 1st, so it'd be 82 pounds lost in a year. I can do thissss! Fri, 29 Jan 2016 11:55:03 EST A fire and hurting my back.. again. On Friday my best friend's house caught fire. She lives right around the corner from me and I heard sirens and saw all the emergency responders rushing to her street. There were so many and I got really concerned when they came and hooked up the hose to the hydrant across from my house. I texted my friend at work because I wasn't sure if it was her house or another, and when I was putting my shoes so I could go down there she called me crying that the roofer she had hired caught the house o... Wed, 18 Nov 2015 20:43:10 EST November walking goal. I made it a goal to walk 40 miles on my treadmill for the month of November. With my back issues I have not done much exercising, but now that it is feeling better than it did I need to get back into doing something. I love walking so I decided it is a good way to get back into exercising after two months of recovery. In the past I stressed about getting to a certain distance within a set amount of time, but that just isn't realistic for me at the moment. I am not going to throw my back o... Wed, 4 Nov 2015 15:04:05 EST I'm not defeated! I have been trying really hard to lose weight but despite my efforts I've only lost 1 pound since July. I woke up with thoughts of "Why should I even bother working out? Nothing is changing anyway." But when I really thought about it that isn't true. My clothes are fitting better and I have more energy in general. A few people have even complimented me, saying I look thinner. Maybe I am building muscle to replace fat lost or something. <BR> <BR> I actually enjoy working out once I am do... Wed, 2 Sep 2015 00:27:08 EST My goal dress. I've never been a dress girl - not because I dislike them, but because I've always felt awkward and exposed in them. Having struggled with my weight since childhood I've spent most of my life trying to hide what I've considered to be my imperfections, and in my mind dresses have always highlighted those things. I've always wanted to wear things like sundresses and really feel cute and feminine, but I've just hid away in jeans and dark colored shirts. I think the last time I wore a skirt ... Sat, 25 Jul 2015 21:44:59 EST Been a while! Hey everyone. =) <BR> <BR> Wow, been almost a year since I wrote a blog. Last September my back went out for a few weeks right when I was getting back into my weight loss journey and it completely derailed me. The holidays hit and I was just too down that I didn't even try to lose weight. Fortunately, I didn't gain and I pretty much stayed the same weight until I got back on track in March. It was a slow start but I've lost 17 pounds so far and am feeling happy and hopeful again! <BR>...

Mon, 1 Sep 2014 11:30:25 EST Goals and my holiday survival plans. So today I peeked at the scale, one because I wanted to see if the water weight came off, and two because it's been exactly a month since I got back onto the wagon. Drumroll . . . . it said I went down 1.5 pounds! And THAT means I've lost 10 pounds in August, which was my goal! I'm so happy! I want to lose another 10 by the end of September and I have faith in myself that I can! <BR> <BR> Time to ramble a little: <BR> <BR> It's crazy that the holidays are around the corner. It seems li... Thu, 28 Aug 2014 13:24:09 EST Sodium, boooo! Last week went well for the most part. =) On Saturday I had a cheat meal, which was a club sandwich with potato chips. Omgosh, it was yummy! But the downside is that it had tons of sodium which my body hates. I bloat <em>15</em> and my blood pressure goes up. Between that and the high sodium vegetable soup I had for dinner, I knew my Monday weigh in was gunna stink. I can easily put on 5-7 water weight pounds when I have something high in sodium. So I drank a lot of water and ate a l...

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 13:05:49 EST Working out when you don't feel like it. I was feeling so tired today that I didn't even want to work out. I slept like crud last night and was just feeling moody. But at 9:45pm I decided that I'd ride my stationary bike for at least 15 mins. I ended up going for 20. I also went for a walk with my dog around 7pm for 20 mins, so I passed my 30 minute total goal for the day . =) <BR> <BR> I got a grilled chicken salad for dinner on the way home and it was really yummy and filling.

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 11:46:44 EST Feeling good! Hey guys! <BR> <BR> I've had a pretty nice week =) Stayed within my calories each day and got my workouts in. This weekend I'm really sore though from my strength training on Friday so I decided to give myself a rest until tomorrow. I did get a lot of walking in from going to the mall and other stores though. For some reason my left foot was really hurting today.. I suspect it was the new shoes I was wearing. =/ At least I know not to wear them if I am gunna be doing a lot of walking arou... Sun, 17 Aug 2014 22:29:23 EST Rainy day workouts. Today was a dreary and rainy day. My area got 5.5 inches of rain and had some flash flooding. Bleh. Plus side is that tomorrow it will be springlike and will continue to be for the rest of the week and weekend. Lotsa walking to do! This has been an awesome summer tho I admit sometimes I wish it was hotter so the pool water wasn't cooler than I prefer. lol. First world problems! <BR> <BR> It was sooo dark outside that all I wanted to do was curl up and go to sleep when it was time to wo...

I've decided to try some new recipes I've found on the internet. I like simple meals with ingredients that are readily available; I'll leave the complex stuff to the chefs! lol. Today I made honey glazed carrots for a side dish. I paired it with some chicken I marinated and grilled.... omgosh, so good! <BR> <BR> For the carrots I used: <BR> <BR> 1 cup baby carrots <BR> 1 tbsp olive oil <BR> Pinch of salt <BR> Pepper to taste <BR> 1 tbsp organic wildflower honey <BR> Mrs Dash table ble... Thu, 7 Aug 2014 15:08:44 EST How far I've fallen.. It's embarrassing to admit but this past year hasn't been a good one for me. I started to slip last September around my birthday and by the time the holiday season was over I gained 30 pounds. 30! It is amazing how fast you can put on weight. Oh, but it doesn't stop there. <BR> <BR> I was seeing a guy and I thought things were going well. We had been friends for two years before I agreed to date him. He was persistent and slowly I lowered my guard. Two days after Valentine's Day (wher... Tue, 5 Aug 2014 17:10:14 EST Climbing back on the wagon in time for the holidays. Hey everyone! I know I haven't been around lately and I aim to remedy that. I hope you have been well and reaching your goals! <BR> <BR> Since my last blog in the summer I actually fell off the wagon and regained weight. Uuuugh. I'm not gunna let it derail me completely though! Normally through the holiday season I sadly gain 15 pounds I lose again in the new year, but since I already gained that I am terrified of gaining more. There is zero way that I can let that happen and so I am r... Thu, 14 Nov 2013 16:57:48 EST Turning 30. <BR> Tomorrow I turn 30. Whooooooa. It's hard to believe it. I don't feel 30. I don't look 30. But... I am! Lol. I'm not going to be one of those "waaaaah!!" type of girls and whine about getting older. After all, turning 30 is a gift denied to so many that went before their time. I think of my friend Mike that passed away two years ago and would be having his 30th in two months, my cousin Mandy that passed at the age of 16 from cancer, and my childhood friend Angel that died from a... Tue, 3 Sep 2013 17:54:00 EST Woooot. Oh my goooosh, I did 30 mins tonight on the elliptical! I've had a hate-hate relationship with the machine and have only done at the most ten minutes on it before deciding to move to a different machine, but tonight I decided that I really needed to challenge myself and pushed onward. I stopped twice to wipe my brow and get a swig from my water bottle but that's it. My feet and calves were on fire, especially since I did 30 mins on the treadmill before for c25k. But I am really happy. =)... Tue, 23 Jul 2013 22:53:49 EST Pizza! Last week I started the gym and now I am going to focus on eating better again. =) I hit the grocery store and have everything I need to make my meals a success. It's been so great getting back into the swing of things! I actually gained weight since my last weigh in but I know it is just water and everything so I'm not concerned. It'll come back off. <BR> <BR> Soooo..... I love pizza. But I don't love the bread carbs! I hit SparkRecipes for ways to get my pizza fix but in a healthier... Mon, 22 Jul 2013 13:48:25 EST Feeling great. Hey guys! <BR> <BR> Soooo, I did three days of the gym this week! I am so glad that me and my friend decided to go. It has gotten a lot better and I don't feel too nervous going there now that I am more familiar with the place. We're not going back until Sunday but I plan to use my home gym until then. Tonight we just focused on cardio. I did a half hour on the treadmill, 20 mins on the bike, and I tried the elliptical and managed 10 minutes. I want to increase it to 15 and then 20. ... Wed, 17 Jul 2013 23:43:22 EST First day at the gym! Well, I went to Planet Fitness for the first time! I was really nervous and scared about going but it wasn't bad at all. I noticed people from all different sizes and it was just really nice. I didn't feel out of place or anything. My best friend Becki was really happy with it too and it was great seeing her feeling good about herself. =) She was even more nervous than me going in because in the parking lot her hands were shaking. lol She said the nerves just hit her all at once when ... Tue, 16 Jul 2013 02:43:07 EST Gym! So this summer has been a struggle for me. I backslid and have had trouble getting back to where I need to be mentally to lose weight. I've still come on Spark every day to spin the wheel but besides that I haven't done much. I dropped out of my summer challenge and everything! Bah! <BR> <BR> I really feel like I need something significant to help me get onto track again. That I need more accountability because right now I cannot trust myself to work out every day on my own even tho I ... Sun, 14 Jul 2013 13:12:18 EST Woo, workout room done. My workout room was a total mess. Everything was out of place, Christmas boxes were stacked up, and the dust bunnies were fruitful and multiplied. lol. It was unpleasant to exercise in there because I was so cramped and I was never looking forward to being in there. I finally got a basic weight bench at the flea market this weekend and decided I needed to get everything in order so I could enjoy the workout room again. The Christmas boxes were taken up to the attic closet, equipment was ... Mon, 29 Apr 2013 19:20:57 EST Salad ripoff. <BR> So for lunch I had a healthy meal and then my father and uncle came in from work and asked me if I wanted something from this local takeout place called Chicken Shack. It is not a healthy place at all. I declined but they were like "Get a salad!!" Lol. I knew a salad from there would be prolly be crappy and didn't want to waste the money but I said okay to shut them up. <BR> <BR> I was right. The "salad" was terrible. <BR> <BR> Half a hard boiled egg, a couple slices of an unim... Wed, 10 Apr 2013 13:22:58 EST Battling temptation. Thanks for all the replies on my last blog about struggling. I've continued to struggle since but things are getting better. TOM is finally over and the fatigue is lifting, and I am back in control of my eating. I am not caving to my cravings. I am not giving into the temptations anymore...I am not losing this war even if the battles temporarily make me lose some ground. I will not go whimpering back to 328 pounds. I will not. I WILL NOT!!! <BR> <BR> I am not kidding when I tell you ... Mon, 8 Apr 2013 20:50:53 EST Struggling I've been struggling since the weekend and being sick. I've binged, been emotional, bloated up (I'm talking a 9 pound weight gain in one day when normally my fluctuations are like 3-4 pounds) and got my period a week early. I just feel like I am in a funk and am sad because I was just on such a high on Friday when reaching my mini goal. I know the scale isn't going to be kind to me Friday for my official weigh in and I need to accept it and keep going (or rolling, considering how bloated ... Wed, 3 Apr 2013 23:39:39 EST Happy Easter!! Yesterday I binged on junk food. With my meals and the added junk I ate over 2000 calories. Today is going to be a high calorie day too but I am not going to eat any junk food. I decided that as soon as I woke up it was going to be a better day and that Monday will be completely back to my normal healthy way. So far so good. =) <BR> <BR> When I woke up I looked outside and saw that it was going to rain so I immediately got dressed and took my dogs for a walk with my mother to try and ... Sun, 31 Mar 2013 14:25:57 EST A new low! :) Omgosh, I'm so happy. I lost two pounds this week. I am at 237- this means I lost the 14 pounds I gained over the holiday season last year, plus a pound more which beats my previous lowest weight. 15 pounds lost so far this year! I really wasn't expecting more than a pound loss this week because I've been under the weather and missed two workouts, but I stayed true to my meal and snack choices, implemented more fruits and veggies, and got my water. <BR> <BR> It is so nice having real... Fri, 29 Mar 2013 13:34:51 EST Spring Challenge This blog is for my spring challenge team, Bouncing Apple Blossoms. (Though in my head I always call it Bouncing Apple Bottoms. Hahah - darn that song! ) <BR> <BR> During the challenge I want to get into the 220s and reach my 100 pounds lost milestone. I would love to drop a clothing size and feel more confident when it is time to try on new bathing suits in May. It is also a goal to remain committed to the weekly challenges and not lose interest or be discouraged by any possible setbac... Tue, 26 Mar 2013 12:50:38 EST Ready for the week! I went to the grocery store today to shop for the week ahead. I got all my veggies and fruits and now I feel prepared. =) <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Oh gosh, I checked out a new grocery store called Harris Teeter that opened up in a ritzy area not too far away. The prices were sooooo high. I just walked around it and then left to go to my normal grocery store. I'm sorry, I'm not paying almost 5 dollars for a loaf of bread. ... Sun, 24 Mar 2013 18:01:45 EST New shoes - finally! Yaaay! Finally got my running shoes after taking the other ones back since they hurt my feet. These are sooo comfortable. They cost about twenty dollars more than the other pair which sucks but I like them. I always get the plain boring white shoes but this time I went for color. The pair I took back were grey and purple which I loved, but this pair is pink, yellow, and black so I think they are cute too. =) Might as well jog in style. lol. <BR> <BR> Here is a pic I found online of t... Sat, 23 Mar 2013 20:08:25 EST A year of Spark. Current login SparkStreak: 365 Days <BR> <BR> Yay! <BR> <BR> I challenged myself to have a year of Spark, no matter what. If I fell off the wagon (which I did between Sept-Dec and regained 14 pounds) I still had to come onto the site and spin that wheel. I knew I could do that at the very least. Spark is such a big motivation for me and I knew that if I came here during my bad days as well as a good days that I would be inspired to get back on track. And I was! It really worked out fo... Mon, 18 Mar 2013 13:29:55 EST Happy Saint Patrick's! <em>137</em> <em>440</em> <em>441</em> <em>437</em> <em>438</em> <em>441</em> <BR> <BR> I joined a spring challenge here on spark and am looking forward to taking part in it. I've done them before and always started off strong but fizzled out at the end. Sadly it seems the case for most people but I'm really going to try and stick with it. Starting weights were due by Friday which is awesome because that is the day I always weigh in on anyway. It figures that when I w... Sat, 16 Mar 2013 23:38:05 EST How far I've come! Just something I wanted to share. <BR> <BR> The other day I was doing my measurements and I saw in my weight loss folder a paper where I had my measurements from when I was 315 pounds. (Highest weight was 328) My abdomen was 61 inches. 61!! I've always carried a lot of my weight in my mid section sadly. I took my tape measure and put it around me to see what 61 inches looked like and you know what? My tape measure only went to 60 inches. I stood there speechless for a long moment and ... Fri, 8 Mar 2013 20:53:48 EST A new month! I didn't lose any weight this week and so my total pounds lost this year remains at 10. 6 in January and 4 in February. My losing goal will remain 6 pounds a month. I'm not worried about not reaching it this time because it was a short month and I've been doing strength training more so I am building muscle. I measured today too and I lost over an inch on my waist this month. Whooooa! So happy about that! I also know today's weigh in wasn't exactly accurate because I wasn't able to u... Fri, 1 Mar 2013 14:12:36 EST Tomorrow will be better. I ate really poorly today. I had half a donut for breakfast and Chinese food for dinner. I overate and cannot even count my calories. Now I am bloated and have heartburn. Uuugggggh. The last time I ate so much and was unable to count calories was at my cousin's baby shower in early January, so I am not gunna beat myself up about it. I do allow myself a cheat meal each week, but I am not going to make a habit of this kind of cheat. Plus side is that I said no to the rice and ate mostly ... Sun, 24 Feb 2013 02:45:14 EST Ruby-lite of the week. Thanks to my Ruby team members for leaving me comments and goodies. It was such a nice surprise to be named Ruby-Lite of the week and it means a lot to me. =) <BR> <BR> Sooo, I weighed in a day early and I am at ten pounds lost so far this year! Four to go until I am back at my lowest weight. I am soooo not going to allow myself to pack on holiday pounds this year. Lol. I know it seems way early to think about it, but I didn't realize that it would be so tough to get the weight back off. W... Thu, 21 Feb 2013 17:25:32 EST I made my pets fat. It's true. My dogs are overweight and it is partially my fault. I showered them with love by giving them extra treats, giving some of my food off my plate, giving them meal leftovers, constantly refilling their kibble bowls for them to graze on, etc. And they got the same from my parents as well. And to add to the overfeeding they wouldn't get exercised properly. Oh, they'd run outside in the yard and play, etc, but it's not enough to burn off all those calories they feasted upon. A few... Wed, 20 Feb 2013 00:10:39 EST Figting food temptations thrown at me. Last night while I was on the treadmill my mother came into the room to ask me if I wanted fast food for dinner. Like.. really? I looked down and saw how close I was to my 5k goal and promptly told her no thanks. She said she understood it would be counteractive to my efforts but it annoyed me she even asked. Then tonight my father brought home pizza at 9pm, after we've already had dinner. I've really wanted pizza this week but behaved. If I had known he was going to stop and get it I ... Sat, 16 Feb 2013 21:46:39 EST 5k and changing my goals. Today I walked/jogged a 5k.
