I am going to hit SparkPeople with three (3!) blogs right in a row. Get ready for the deluge ;-) As one may see I haven't been active on the site for about 10 months. No worries though... I have not neglected my health crusade, in some ways pick... Read more

I’ve had intentions to measure myself for the past hmm… let’s see, 4 months and somehow day after day evaded that tape measure (despite having it on me every single one of those days). It was too easy to avoid when I knew the sting I would feel ... Read more

About a year ago I read Lights Out and I was shocked that I could sleep at all without black out curtains, with the alarm clock lighting up the room, and falling asleep watching a movie off my laptop. I switched up all those variables and did fi... Read more

Saturday, August 04, 2012      4 comments

Whew! Only a few days in and I’m finding that all the work for our 3 month LMI challenge is a lot. But I am reminded that the successes that I had seen in the past that seemed to come so easily were due to the fact that I was doing all of the ta... Read more

That panicky feeling you get when you realize upon waking up that you ate 3 Oreos the night before, but it really wasn’t just 3 Oreos and it really wasn’t just Oreos. That panicky feeling you get when you are reminded of your goals and the... Read more
