Mental Health and Social Networking
I was just chastised for posting a request for any Sparkers who also provide mental health services to take a research survey because it violated Spark People guidelines. It doesn't, since it is neither an advertisement, inappropriate site, or ... Read more

Dare to Care
In the quest to beat the holiday bulge, my business is donating 10% of sales to combat hunger. I like to do at least 2 or 3 charity drives every year to do my part, and I figure there are a lot of people out there that need a meal more than I do... Read more

Lightning Struck Twice. And Now for the Cytotec.
When I last posted I was pretty excited about leaving spark for a while to become temporarily, but very happily, fat. I am back a few months sooner than I planned.
Went for the ultrasound on the 22nd with hubs laden with camera gear. We sh... Read more
Shelving Turbo Fire Because . . . .
. . . we are 5 weeks pregnant!
Actually, I am just shelving the HIIT workouts. I did a few of them last week when I started week 9 and was so excited, but it is one of the few exercise styles that are not recommended for pregnancy. Rather t... Read more
Turbo Fire "I Do What I Want" Week Seven
It looks like I gained a pound while out of town, but considering I had to eat out every meal, I am not going to cry about it. This defiantly has the potential to be a slippery slope, especially since I am taking 14-hours at the graduate level.... Read more
Back in Town
Ooops - I did not post my schedule plan last week. I was in such a rush because of the trip, I just ran out of tine. I managed to keep counting calories, walk a lot, and stick to the very loose plan I created. I had a few light days and a few ov... Read more

I lost 6 pounds and 4.25 inches!
Pound wise, I am right on target since I am going for a daily calories deficit of 750, or a 1.5 pound loss/week. The inches were interesting because although they were not big losses, they were losses that e... Read more
"I do what I want" Turbo Fire W4

Injuries are NOT Openings
. . . as a yoga teacher told me when I popped my right hamstring in a wide-leg forward bend 6 years ago. And when I popped my left hamstring last night doing the same type of movement, it was still b.s.!
So my Turbo Fire plans will have to ... Read more

"I do what I want" Turbo Fire W2
I stuck to the week one plan and have had a great time with some amazing calorie burn. I also realized I am still not crazy about CLX Burn 1 & 2 but I will probably still put some of the other workouts in as an option.

I Heard Clunking and Zipping This Week!!!
Two amazing things happened this week.
Although I have been weighing on the bathroom scale, there is nothing quite like the the butcher's scale for getting an accurate view of progress.

"I do what I want" Turbo Fire W1
I have done several workouts from the Basic and Advanced Turbo Fire kits and am thrilled with the intensity level. Me being me, however, it is unlikely I will follow the schedule precisely when I "officially" start the program this week. The pas... Read more
