I can't say I'm back. I've been gone too long to say that. I am starting at square one. From scratch. From the beginning. I'm not at the weight I was originally, so in that aspect it isn't quite square one. But with my attitude and my mental sta... Read more
I did it!
I went to the gym by myself today. No workout partner. No one to meet. I had to drag my son with me, but he wasn't motivating me at all. I just had to go. I needed to do it. I didn't end up doing anything yesterday so it was really important for... Read more
Staying the course
Yeah I know it's only been a few days but I'm staying the course. It feels good to do that even if it's only been a few days. It's not perfect since I don't have a lot of extra grocery money right now, but I've been trying to follow sparkpeople ... Read more
It's a good start to the week. I went to the gym this morning and spent 45 minutes on the arc trainer. A good and healthy breakfast was enjoyed. Water is being consumed. Blog written.
I did step on the scales. I know I said I wouldn't, but... Read more
Okay so I was all whiny here the other day and you guys gave me some awesome support. Awesome words of advice. I just love you guys. Thank you.
I was chatting with a high school/spark friend on facebook (you know who you are if you read th... Read more
I'm not gone
Well it's been a long time since I've written a blog here on SparkPeople, so I figured I was due.
So where am I with my weight loss? About the same place I was the last time I checked in. I've gotten no better at tracking my calories, and... Read more
There's so much on my mind right now. I'm disappointed in myself, frustrated, and yet understand how I got to this point. Over the last two weeks, I've been drinking a little more alcohol when I had been drinking NONE. My sleep patterns have ... Read more
Still at it!
I know I haven't been "around" a lot lately, but I am still here. I am still at it. I've found a network of other moms like me on twitter that I've really connected with, so I've been spending a lot of time with them, and also I have started a p... Read more
I need your support
So here it is. Sparkpeople got me started, and Mamavation.com is giving me the real push. They run a campaign and sponsor two moms a few times a year. The sponsorship includes lots of free stuff to make exercise more obtainable (a treadmill, dvd... Read more
I am on a quest for a new adventure. I do not know if it will come to fruition or not, however I am going to try anyway.
Mamavation.com is a great website for all Moms to check out. Also bookieboo.com. Mamavation has some really great spon... Read more
I feel good about this week. I got in a lot of exercise, burned a lot of calories!! I ate pretty well. Drank my water. I just feel good. When I'm awake, I'm really awake. When I'm tired, it's time for bed. It feels regular, scheduled, good.

We are not perfect in our journeys. I already shared that I had gained two pounds over Thanksgiving. It is gone now. :) So I have 11 pounds to go toward my March 1st short-term goal. That's pretty exciting.
Today they had me scheduled to w... Read more
New goal. New determination.
That nasty BMI. My doctor says he doesn't like it. I don't really either. It says I'm "obese" and I don't think I am, and my doctor agrees with me. Personally the doctor's opinion holds more water to me than the BMI.
At any rate, I am down... Read more
Not what I was hoping for
Maybe we have all figured out that I try not to obsess about the scales. Really, I don't. We went to the gym this morning, and I did weigh myself. Those two pounds I gained back over Thanksgiving have been a little heavy on my mind. They aren't ... Read more
Solo workouts and self conversation (not conservation)
I find that, to a degree, my workouts have become dependent upon my workout buddy. This, I realize, is not entirely healthy. This method is not allowing me to develop independent habits. Of course, working out with a friend... Read more
