I found it! A little, at least
The past few weeks I could NOT have been less motivated to work out, eat healthy, even move off of the couch (DVR is bad like that). See previous entry.
But I think I finally found my motivation - interestingly enough, it came from someone ... Read more
Finding your motivation
I think most things, whether working or working out, require the slightest bit of motivation to get you going. Right now, I'm typing this blog to try and find the motivation to start my work day, but I've been having trouble finding motivation i... Read more
Wii fit, you shut up!
Wow. I haven't written a blog post in nearly a year. Has it gotten worse?
YOU BET YOUR BOOTS IT HAS.
I'm tired of making excuses. Sure, I haven't had a steady job since March of 2009 and I've been laid off twice. Sure I've had an up a... Read more
falling off the wagon
Whether it's because of work, school, relationships, or our own laziness, I think we've all fallen off the wagon a few times. After getting laid off last year and going through a series of fruitless relationships, I've finally found my way back ... Read more
Kudos, Kim Kardashian
This week, that image has been making the blog rounds. From fitness blogs to gossip ones, EVERYONE is talking about this Kim Kardashian picture.
Apparently what happened ... Read more
I have not been blogging lately, tsk tsk!
I guess there's just not a lot going on. I'm still doing Jillian Michaels' Making the Cut, this should be my final week but I got sick last week (and had lots of green beer on st pattys day. and lot... Read more
And now, for something more optimistic
My last entry was kind of whiny and pessimistic. I don't like ending the day like that, so here's something a little more encouraging.
I just finished Day 9 of Jillian Michaels' Making the Cut 30 Day torture scheme, and since Day 10 is a r... Read more
Listening to your body
Earlier this week, one of the featured Spark blogs was about listening to your body and trusting it to tell you when you're hungry, full, and what you need to be eating. While I fully agree with this in some respects, don't you think we should b... Read more
What you do in the weekend...stays there?
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Unfortunately, that isn't quite true with weekends. What you eat over the weekend TOTALLY comes with you into the week days, in the form of flabby thighs and a delicious donut around your waist.

Grocery Store Blues!
After reading "Eat This, Not That!!", my eyes were really opened to how processed foods are totally gross for you. So my trip to the grocery store today was a little rough. I stood in the bread aisle forever trying to find a bread that would mee... Read more
I'm having a really hard time with my cardio right now. Maybe it's because I haven't been consistent over the past week, but Tuesday I was so tiiiiired and I'd done a good legs work out, so I decided to do 20 minutes of rowing instead of running... Read more
Making the Cut
After some research and reading I've decided to do Jillian Michaels' "Making the Cut" program. I joined the Jillian Michaels Sparkers Team, because I've loved her ever since I started watching The Biggest Loser and even MORE whenever I tried her... Read more
SODIUM IS EVIL!
I finally figured out how to get Spark to track my sodium intake for me. It always annoyed me that it didn't have that in the main groups of nutrition trackers because, hello, how many people say that if you aren't losing the weight you want or ... Read more
Overworked and Underpaid
Sure, it's normal life for most of us in the office, but what about at the gym?
When I started Spark People last year, I was a portrait of fitness perfection. I went to the gym 5, 6, even 7 days a week. My workouts usually lasted about 2 ho... Read more
Can I just say, as we begin, that I love it when I eat all 8 fruit and veggies? The little icon is so pretty and colorful. It's a good reminder that putting lots of color on your plate is a good thing.
ANYWHO, I thought I'd share the tinies... Read more
