Doomed to repeat history...
I have a bad habit of using Spark for a while, then disappearing. It's been over a year since I last logged in, and I thought I'd look at some past blogs... here are some highlights from my first blog in May of 2011...
-I can't believe I al... Read more
Beginning week 3!
It's the start of the 3rd week, and I'm happy to report that I've been doing well with staying in my calorie range. Some days I may have been stretching the top of my limit, but it has stayed my focus and I've kept things under control. That's a... Read more
I've made it into day 8, and I already feel like I need to tweak my goals and refocus. As usual, I set up a plan to work out every day, stay within a specific calorie range, and drink 8+ cups of water. And this plan I'm sure is doable, but it's ... Read more
Here I am, already at day 5. I've done well staying in my calorie limit, and drinking 8+ cups of water. The consistent workouts, however, continue to be a struggle for me. Like last night, I was going to get on the treadmill for the interval tra... Read more
Yesterday was day one of my restart. I'm happy to report that I met all of my goals: I drank 8 cups of water, I did my first day of body weight training, and I stayed (barely) in my calorie range. I'm highlighting each sucessful day on my phone ... Read more
I'm burnin' up!
Ok, ok... my title is a bit misleading. This blog should be about how I had a killer workout and burned tons of fat.
It is, however, about how I ripped a few new CD's I got for Christmas onto my computer last night, and dow... Read more
Today is the last day of 2014. It's been an interesting year with many challenges to say the least. I was going to complain about them, but isn't it all just life? My in-laws tend to have a poor outlook any time anything goes wrong. They'll say ... Read more
I've known this for awhile, but it became painfully apparent last night. I love my couch. I love walking in the door after a long day at work to have it greet me at the door. It always supports me, no matter if I'm watching TV, snuggled up with ... Read more
Let's a gooooooo!
Mario anyone? Ok....
I survived Christmas... house guests, visiting extended family, gifts, piles of sweet treats... well ok. I don't know that I survived the treats. I had more than my fair share... But, I can't un-eat them, so now that th... Read more
A long, painful realization...
Losing weight is easy. You eat healthy, exercise, and you lose weight. Right?
It's easy, but it's not simple. Sometimes you think you're eating healthy, but you're consuming far more calories than you realize. Or you make those bad choices... Read more
Ok self... I get it. You've been struggling to meet your goals for 2 weeks now. You planned to do a countdown to Christmas challenge for 24 days, and today is day 15 and you've only hit your goals here and there. And it's frustrating and you're ... Read more
Day um... 10?
Oops... haven't exactly been keeping up with my blog. I'm now on day 10 of what was supposed to be my countdown to christmas challenge. I've pretty much failed miserably on that. I hate that I hold myself back. I have been doing better with bein... Read more
Day 3 wasn't too terrible. I ate well throughout the day (this is made easier since I plan and bring food from home), drank enough water, and even tried a new healthy recipe for dinner (chicken with a sweet potato, corn, and kale bake). A small ... Read more
I will not get discouraged. I will not beat myself up. I will not give up.
Yesterday was day ONE of my self-imposed countdown to Christmas challenge. Eat healthy (i.e.: stay in my calorie range every day), drink 6+ cups of water, and do som... Read more
Wait... what happened to summer?
I can't believe not only is Thanksgiving over, but it's December! I'm still in shock that it's not summer anymore. I suppose I need to do some Christmas shopping and decorating... :)
So, I believe fate brought me to sparkpeople today. I adm... Read more
