Week 2 day 3 of C25K, sucking wind!
Wow. I did my run/walk outside yesterday at a park instead of on the treadmill. I feel like I should be back at week one! I know it's harder outside, which is why I thought I should try it out, but I really didn't think it would be THAT hard.... Read more
Week 2, Day 2 of C25k, Feeling a little better and more hopeful
I really do think my flat feet and unsupportive shoes are the number 1 reason the shin splints are happening to me. Last night I went out and bought an ice pack, athletic tape and orthotics. I iced my shins and took some ibuprofen last night ... Read more
Week 2 of C25K, angry and scared
I am so angry I could just scream and cry right now.
Everything was going so well.
OK, so last week I started the C25K training program again. This time would be different! I had failed 3 TIMES last year at this program because of in... Read more
My scale was on uneven ground!!
I know it is silly to put so much "weight"
on what the scale says, but it just didn't seem right to me that... Read more
Disappointing week / Mixed bag
Things always seem to go wrong when the vendors from Wisconsin are on site... our hospital is implementing a computer system that originates from Wisconsin, so every once in awhile our "Application Coordinators", the vendor specialists who know ... Read more
It feels SO GOOD to be back exercising so much again. Yesterday, I kind of ignored the bootcamp thing and did 40 minutes on my elliptical machine. I knew there was going to be some ab work for the boot camp, but my neck got all out of whack ag... Read more
Back in the 150's!
I never thought I would be happy to see my weight in the 150's but it sure beats the 160's. Back in April last year, I remember finally seeing 159 on the scale, and being so elated. I told myself jokingly that I would kill myself if I ever got... Read more
I got in my exercise, finished the bootcamp challenge, ate pretty well today but not enough veggies (might eat carrots later, though), but..
Ok, so the whole thing was, I was supposed to go eat dinner with a friend, but it turned out that... Read more
Who is that woman in the "before" pictures?!
Not me! NO WAY. I obviously am in complete denial of my appearance. So here are my "before" pictures for SP Bootcamp! I had just woken up, hadn't done hair or makeup, but that is hardly noticeable with the other body flaws.

A blog adventure, 2010 goals, etc.
I am so happy 2010 is here! I feel like this is going to be a great year for me, the year I really get everything in order, such as finances, my weight, and my health. 2009 was more of a year of discovery for me. I really started the SP thing... Read more
New goals and a name change
I turned 32 on the 25th and I feel like it's a new year, a new start, and I'm determined to make my 32nd year the best! I have accomplished a lot over the last 7 months on Spark, with getting into exercising regularly and eating healthy most of... Read more
Jewelry & Makeup
For me, wearing jewelry and putting on a little bit of blush and mascara are things I do when I feel good about myself. When I feel gross about myself, I stop caring. I stop shaving "down there". I stop wearing makeup, I stop wearing jewelry.... Read more
Dude, where's my BOOBS?
The one thing I did enjoy about being heavy was that it was the only time (besides pregnancy) that I've ever had boobs I could be proud of! All through my younger years, I have been pretty flat. Always an A cup and very self conscious of mysel... Read more
The title of this blog should be read in a very ominous voice, with creepy, off-key organ music playing in the background, followed by a woman screaming!
I went last night. My family loves that place because all the comfort foods are avai... Read more
Chronic neck pain
I am in so much pain right now. I have this issue with an apparent slipped disk in my neck that pinches a nerve or something. It is always hanging around but sometimes if I sleep funny I will wake up and realize it's going to be a horrible day... Read more
