Wednesday morning I woke up with that crushing chest pain yet again. After 5 hours of pain and vomiting I couldn't take it anymore and had to go to the emergency room. They admitted me and finally the test results confirmed that I had to have surgery to have my gall bladder removed. I was in the hospital until Friday night. I'...

Since then I have been through numerous tests and procedures. The doctors still aren't sure what is wrong. <BR> <BR> Through all of the testing that has been done, a precancerous polyp was found and removed. I thank God that the testing lead to finding that. Had I waited until I was 50 to have a colonoscopy done, it may have been full blown cancer. Please, please, please don't put off having screenings done that are meant t... Fri, 1 Oct 2010 16:31:38 EST Prayers Needed...Tragic accident involving my daughter's friend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3584620 Please pray for these people. Maddie was one of my daughter's friends. An unfortunate accident, but I wanted to put the article here as a reminder of the importance of following traffic laws. Maybe this still would have happened... maybe it was just Maddie's time to go home. She will be missed terribly. Thanks so much for the prayers. They are much needed and appreciated. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> A 15-year-old girl is dead as the result of a car accident that happened around 3:30 Saturday...

Gone...Feeling oh, so Grateful!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3445750 Today marks 5 months on Spark for me. I thought it was time for a little reflection about my journey. <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> When I started this process 5 months ago, I was at my absolute lowest emotionally and the heaviest I'd ever been in my whole life. Spark was the last stop for me before doing something more drastic. I found out about Spark in a magazine and thought what do I have to lose? So between Spark, prayer and a supportive husband here I am today...a new woman weighing ... Mon, 19 Jul 2010 01:54:41 EST Hardware Ranch Take Two!!! WOO HOO!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3424846 I had a great weekend! My biggest accomplishment to date on my bike has been riding back to Hardware Ranch. It's only a 40 mile ride, but that is how I started my biking journey. I have avoided doing that ride again for a long time because of the way the first ride made me feel. (Legs like jiggly lead, body aches all over for a couple of days, dehydrated and just plain physically and emotionally exhausted!) I am so proud of myself, you have no idea!!!!!

I visited every one of my friend's page!!!! I also got caught up on the comments on my page from my birthday forward as well as the goodies from that point forward. I even got caught up on my friend feed last night, I've tried to read and comment on at least one blog on everyone's page and if I haven't yet, I will.

Chris and I had quite the adventure today. We went for an 80 mile bike ride and about 35 miles in, I crashed going up a hill. Chris teased me and said I have now been initiated and am an official roadie! Woo Hoo!!! Chris had 2 flat tires back to back after my wreck at about 37 miles in. The rest of the ride went beautifully. Yay!!! <BR> My left leg is pretty tore up. Thought I'd share a picture of the back of my leg. <BR> ... Sun, 20 Jun 2010 01:26:34 EST To Blog Or Not To Blog... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3342737 That is what has been on my mind this last week. I wanted to take some time away from blogging to see how I felt about it. The first couple of days I felt tremendous anxiety not blogging. I'm sure that stemmed from the commitment I made to myself and needing that structure to feel safe because if I just do this and this and this...you get the idea, then I had my routine and as long as I stuck to my routine, then everything would be just fine. What I learned this past week is that I don't ...

I am convinced that with the time change, the days actually got shorter, not longer. LOL! <BR> <BR> I thought today I would have some time to do some real catching up, but it didn't happen.

Hope everyone had a great day! I'm hoping to have a little more Spark time tomorrow. Thanks for all of the great comments on my Victory Ride blog! I had the time of my life on that ride. See ya later! Have a great Tuesday! <BR> <BR> <em>247</em> <em>102</em> Tue, 8 Jun 2010 01:10:39 EST VICTORY RIDE with pics!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3305961 So, I'm just gonna put out a disclaimer now. If you DON'T want EVERY roll to show, NEVER wear white, or bike shorts that cut into the middle of your chunky belly. Also, leaning over a bike causes everything else to lean forward...chunky belly included. With that said, I am only posting these photos because from Feb. 18th to now, I have lost 48 lbs., I have worked my butt off at the gym, I have eaten the right way, I've literally only had my rode bike for two weeks putting 180 miles on it p...

I always take Sunday off. I don't know if I'm going to make it through tomorrow. I may have to break down and go for a little ride in the morning. Nothing too strenuous...just enough to feel like I've done something. I go to pick up my registration packet for Saturday's ride tomorrow evening (Friday). I'm getting so excited!!!! <BR> <BR> I went to stamp club this morning and I didn't finish the scrapbook pages. ... Fri, 4 Jun 2010 01:57:58 EST A Whole Lot of Nada http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3295256 First of all, I need to say thanks for all the great responses to my last two blogs. I said I wasn't going to let myself get behind again, but I literally have been on the go for the past two days. That equals falling behind. We'll see what tomorrow brings! Actually it's going to bring a little down time for me and I'm going to go to my stamp club. I'm really excited about that. Last month I was on the run and wasn't able to really enjoy the club projects or even finish them before I ... Thu, 3 Jun 2010 01:37:07 EST Reducing my exercise program this week...Ugh!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3291309 My husband told me that I should cut down on my exercise a lot this week so that I am prepared for the ride on Saturday. So, like no exercise on Friday at all. No more spinning classes this week. Just easy rides on my bike. No bodypump. I don't know if I like this idea or not. Actually I don't like this idea at all, but since he has more experience than I do, I'm going to listen and TRY not to exercise as hard. I will be going to piyo tomorrow and on an easy bike ride. I don't know wh...

Actually I'm okay with keeping it short tonight. I think I am finally caught up on my thank you's for comments on my blogs and for goodies. I think I have my page comments covered too, although I can't quite be sure about that one! In any case, if I have not thanked you, I am now saying thank you and for my own sanity I am starting with a fresh slate tomorrow! I am giving myself permission to be okay with this.

Mon, 31 May 2010 01:47:47 EST One Epic Adventure through Hail!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3281149 Today's ride turned out to be quite the adventure. Our plan was to do the 35 mile leg of Little Red, so that I could see what it was like. We got to Trenton and parked, unloaded the bikes, got everything situated and ready to go and then my husband fell. He smashed his mirror and somehow in the fall his tire went flat. No big deal, he was going to replace the tube but when he turned the bike over he saw that his tire actually had a hole in it. Seeing that, he knew a patch would not hol... Sun, 30 May 2010 00:18:55 EST Another good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3278827 Today was another good day, except for the rain! I helped a friend with her little girl's birthday party. Her little girl turned five and had 11 little girls over for a "Fancy" party. They all dressed up and had a blast. I even got to wear a feather boa! Ooh La La!!! <BR> <BR> My husband and I went to the bike store this evening and got a computer for my bike. Now I will be able to track my mileage, speed, cadence and all sorts of other things that will probably take me forever to lear... Sat, 29 May 2010 01:43:37 EST Loving the Rides!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3275785 I thought last night I would give you all a break from reading one of my long blogs...Just kidding! I was actually very tired and just couldn't muster the energy or the thoughts to write anything. I had quite the day of exercise yesterday (5hrs.), which wasn't so bad because I slept like a rock last night. <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> So this week I have been on 3 pretty long bike rides. It has been so much fun! I already told you about the one ride with my husband. Yesterday I went out wi...

The absolute best part was having the sun shine in over our valley!!! I love sunshine! <em>67</em> It just makes everything better. When my husband got home from work we went on a ride. Outside of some crazies on the road, it was absolutely wonderful. Having a road bike makes such a difference! <em>332</em> I was really worried that I would forget to unclip and fall at a stop, but I didn't!!! <em>224</em> Although I have been told by numerous people t...

Our regular instructor was back today. It was so nice to see her. I got on a spin bike and she was great about it. Even encouraging...talk about differences. My friend that was going to join me had something to do at her daughter's school, so I was on my own. Do you have any idea how hard it is to motivate yourself to do a spin workout for an hour by yourself? It's hard!!! The musi... Mon, 24 May 2010 17:23:49 EST So, I'm just not feeling it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3261273 I've been sparking off and on most of the afternoon and evening and now I'm kinda just over it. I kept thinking I'll get to my blog soon enough. Maybe I'm procrastinating because I'm running out of things to say, or maybe I'm thinking that Dr. Laura is right and that blogging is a little narcissistic, or maybe I'm just burned out and want to take a break. Hmmmm. I'm thinking about this one. I guess I've been a little more down lately because of the yuck weather and feeling like I'll neve...

I think I annoyed the instructor today at the gym. I thought our regular instructor was going to be back, but she was still on vacation. Anyway, on Fridays they split the hour into half cardio and half PiYo. Usually the cardio is some high impact thing and I have a hard time doing that because of my knees. There's another woman that has a hurt foot right now, so she can't do the high impact either, so we decided that we would get on the spinning bikes while the ot... Sat, 22 May 2010 01:11:14 EST Long day, short blog! :o) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3252535 There were a ton of people at Zumba tonight. We did some new songs which meant new moves. It was a lot of fun although my legs are hurting. I did an RPM spinning class last night, then this morning did bodypump and a 30 min RPM class and finished today off with Zumba! I was going to take a break today, but I was feeling antsy this morning. It feels so good to sweat! Never thought I would say that. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow morning half of the class will be cardio and the other half will be Pi... Fri, 21 May 2010 01:51:24 EST Dr. Laura Schlessinger annoyed me today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3248843 So, I just realized that yesterday was my 3 month anniversary for Spark! A lot has changed in my life in that little bit of time. All for the better of course. I've made wonderful friends, lost some weight, actually enjoy exercising and have made myself important in the game of life. <BR> <BR> I was listening to a talk radio show today as I was driving around. It was Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Part of me wanted to change the station because she is rude and annoying. The other part of me w... Thu, 20 May 2010 01:39:10 EST I'm being whiny, so feel free to ignore this blog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3245064 I've been so busy that sparking has become hard! <em>39</em> I'm not in a down mood, just wishing there was more time in the day to get things done. I keep thinking things will slow down a bit and they don't. The only thing I realistically could cut back on is spark or exercise and I'm not going to stop either of those. I think I just need to take a step back and remember that I don't have to do it all or be it all to everyone and everything. Balance...that's what I'm working towards. ...

I will get to you I promise!!!! I appreciate it so much and wish there were more hours in the day so I could do it all! <BR> <BR> I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

First I want to share a little history of how this came about. Those of you that know me or are my friend have seen on my status feed and a previous blog that I am going to do a cycling event. My first ever and I am so excited!!!! The name of it is The Little Red Riding Hood Ride. This ride has been sold out for a while and I was fortunate enough to have a friend who knew someone that is not going to be ...

It is really sad and not very flattering. I was at my heaviest and so depressed. I thought I was hiding something by being in sweats all the time.

I had a full day of being on the run and then I did a spinning class and Zumba back to back. I think that was probably a mistake on my part. I am so sore!!! I came home took a shower, tracked my food and exercise and here I am. Utterly exhausted! We all know what this means. BED in just a few minutes! Thanks for all the support today! I am very excited and proud of myself for working so hard even when I didn't want to and that it has translated into a 41lb. weight ... Fri, 14 May 2010 00:59:50 EST I Have Spinner Legs! Woo Hoo!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3224450 Tomorrow will make 12 weeks I've been on spark. Losing weight really is a journey from the inside out. I watched the Biggest Loser and I think I've got a little bit of Michael in me. I'm working hard and I'm making progress as quickly as my body will allow, but I'm so frustrated by some of the things I still can't do. I have horrible knee problems, so spinning is a great work-out for me. I'd love to be able to do Hip Hop or Turbo, but every time I do, I pay for it dearly. I tried Hip H...

I have all sorts of things going through my head earlier. At night my brain turns to mush! <BR> <BR> I'm starting to get a little more excited about losing the weight and I'm feeling like I can really do this.

Remember how I said a while back that I was setting a goal to ride with my husband next year in one of his charity rides? Well I had a wonderful opportunity for me open up to be able to ride in a non-competitve, Women Only cycling event, so I talked to my husband about it and he's going to help me train for it. The ride is June 5th. They have different mileage amounts that you can do, so my husband and I talked about it and decided that I ... Tue, 11 May 2010 00:52:04 EST Reflecting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3212715 This has really been an emotional few days for me. Subconsciously I guess a lot more was going on in my mind than I even realized and it has been wreaking havoc on my emotions and heart. We are far away from any family and sometimes it's hard being so far away from everyone. One of my sons is in VA and I miss him terribly. This was my first mother's day without him around. I am very blessed because my other two children were here with me, but it's hard having your children have their own... Mon, 10 May 2010 01:18:13 EST I Indulged just a little and boy was it yummy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3209767 Boy, time flies when you're having fun. I'm still trying to get caught up. I've had a great day today. I'm so glad my husband is home. Yay!!! We went to a spinning class this morning at 6 a.m. Just a little crazy, but boy was it a great start to the day. <BR> <BR> After spinning I went to pick up a basket of yummy fruits and veggies from the co-op and then I went to the farmer's market. Some women from my church have a band called "The Hot Flashes" and they were playing the live mus... Sun, 9 May 2010 01:48:09 EST Thanks, Thanks and more Thanks http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3207001 I thought about skipping this tonight because my honey is home, but then thought I had at least better say thank you for all of the support today. I have lots I want to share, but it will have to wait until tomorrow. I still have catching up to do as well, so I'll just say a generic thanks now for goodies, comments and such until I have more time tomorrow to visit your pages! <BR> <BR> THANK YOU!!!! You have no idea how much you have helped me and how much better I feel. I truly feel s... Sat, 8 May 2010 01:12:48 EST Warning, this is not an upbeat blog... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3203730 I should feel great, but I don't. I don't know what happened between this afternoon and Zumba. I should be over the moon! I've lost 38.6 pounds, I'm doing all of the right stuff, even had a 3lb loss according to spark (it was 2.8, but who's counting) and I feel FAT!!!! As if I had not done a thing. <BR> <BR> So my mood started coming down along with that white stuff that came down and is still sitting on my freshly mowed lawn. It's May 6th for crying out loud. I've had enough cold yu... Fri, 7 May 2010 02:02:48 EST Spinning Smoothie...Just what the body ordered!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3199963 Oh boy, today has been a long, long day! I feel exhausted, not in a bad way in a really good way. I think I'm going to sleep great tonight! My husband is out of town on business so I was left on my own to go to spinning class tonight. I missed having him there, but I still worked so hard! He did manage to make it to a spinning class tonight as well and we actually finished at the same time. I'm glad he was able to do that. Yay hubby!!! <BR> <BR> Then I came home and created what I call... Thu, 6 May 2010 01:52:29 EST Help, My eyes are closing and I can't finish my blog! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3196017 I've been reading random blogs and comments today and I have decided that I just don't like the heavy blogs. There is so much anger in some people and even though I can't hear it, I can feel it and it just brings my mood down. You know how when you meet someone and something about them just rubs you the wrong way? That's kinda what has happened for me with some of these blogs and I was always taught that if I didn't have something nice to say, just don't say anything at all...so I don't! ...
