Love Yourself Part II

Thursday, January 29, 2015      0 comments

I ran in to one of my friend's mom from high school, when she commented on how she thought I had lost weight. I looked at her a little shocked, because I see myself every day. Admittedly the scale has gone down since I have seen her, and my clot... Read more

Love Yourself

Tuesday, January 27, 2015      2 comments

I love to read other Spark Members' blogs to hear about their successes and challenges that come with the daily choice of being healthy. Today I came across a question that moved me beyond belief, "What would someone who loved themselves do?" ... Read more

Set back

Wednesday, January 21, 2015      3 comments

I had decided to pretty much cut carbs from my diet to cleanse my body of craving sugar. I made it to day five, and about lunch time my body thought the food I brought sounded disgusting, and I wanted chocolate like a crazy woman. I sat there ... Read more

I have come to terms with the fact that I am a horrible blogger, in the consistency factor anyway. The good thing is, while I haven't been making time every day, or even weekly, to blog about what I have been up to-I've still been seeing results... Read more

Friday, August 15, 2014      2 comments

Yesterday we went to the Iowa State Fair for work (not for working, for a team building day) and we were there for seven hours-walking pretty much the whole time except for lunch-I counted that as my Day 4 activity because I was definitely more ... Read more

Wednesday, August 13, 2014      3 comments

Sometimes I wish I was as excited to wake up and go out in the mornings as my dog. Once I'm up-I'm good... I just hate leaving my very comfy bed lol We got up and went for our run this morning, and it was absolutely perfect weather. They were mo... Read more

Top Priority

Monday, August 11, 2014      2 comments

I have been thinking a lot lately about my persona-what kind of person I am. I am very detail oriented, a planner, a doer, and I love projects. When I am passionate about something I go all in. I recently purchased a house and I had a fever to g... Read more

Everyone is different

Thursday, June 26, 2014      4 comments

It seems like such an easy concept to understand-that everyone is different. When coming from a weight perspective-it is actually pretty hard to grasp, at least for me. What I look at my weight, is completely different from what someone else at ... Read more

Not Guilty!

Yesterday was the first day (since I've been counting calories on the tracker) in the past two weeks that I went over my calorie count. My boss was so thoughtful and bought us this super rich chocolate/heath/caramel ice cream...but you know what... Read more

Last night was a whirlwind! I had to go to the grocery store right after work to grab stuff to make dinner (taco zucchini boats!), run home, make dinner, workout, and entertain my friend. Needless to say by the time I got home-I underestimated t... Read more

Exciting news!

Wednesday, June 18, 2014      2 comments

Last night I went home and completed day 3 of the 30 day shred-which wasn't extremely difficult-surisingly enough-since I did not do the workout in 2.5 weeks :-/. I woke up this morning, did my yoga-then weighed myself. Down 5 lbs! Exciting news... Read more
