Fitting Into My New Routine.
I used to be able to work out for a couple of hours a day but since my boyfriend and I have been laid off (thank, you Congress), our new full time job is looking for jobs! So now my usually joyful Zumba sessions have turned into trekking around ... Read more
A New Month.
Okay, I must admit I have fallen off my routine. I've still been maintaining healthy eating habits but I've been slacking off on exercise. This is a new month, though, and even though it's been a rough year I must re-focus and get back on track.... Read more
Just learned yesterday that my first friend on Spark People passed away last week. I'm so sad & I'm going to miss her so much! I know she was such an inspiration to so many people on Spark with her determination, kindness, & positive attitude. I... Read more
February is my Favorite!
Usually because it involves the Super Bowl but also because I love Valentine's Day & my birthday is also this month. I'm leaving for my birthday trip on Saturday and I'll be gone for about 10 but still plan on tracking my food, exercise, & I'm a... Read more
Year Is Off To A Good Start.
Pretty excited that this is the first holiday season where I've actually managed to lose weight instead of gain. I usually make new year's resolutions but this year I decided to not specifically make one and just to keep on track with what I'm d... Read more
Had A Good Week!
It looks like I'm getting back on track. I've been trying to stay positive, active, and been making myself set little goals each day to achieve! Still steadily losing weight, eating fewer processed foods, & getting good sleep at night. Just hope... Read more
Trying To Stay On Track.
I've been feeling lately that I am slipping. Working out less (but still daily), eating more (but still staying in my range) but it's just not working well for me. My energy levels are low even though I'm sleeping a full 8 hours at night & my mo... Read more
Oh, What A Tangled Web We Weave.
Although things on the health and fitness front have been well, it seems my self-destructive and neurotic tendencies have seeped over into other parts of my life. I'm physically healthier, losing weight, and feeling better BUT with this newly di... Read more
Nothing Much New Here
but I realized I hadn't blogged in almost three weeks. (oops) Life is great though. I've been doing great with my Zumba, even doing an extra session a few days a week + making sure I am doing strength training twice a week. I have been getting b... Read more
I've tried to write this blog twice and my cat ran across my hands, which usually means she wants me to go back to bed, but I am determined to hash this out. Lol. Anyways what I really want to say is thank you, SP. Life is sweeter, I have more h... Read more
Tackling The Weekend.
So every weekend since I've started this journey, I have slipped off track. I still stay within my proper calorie range and I still do my scheduled exercise BUT I make unhealthy food choices and don't do anything extra to burn calories. I do th... Read more
It feels good!
I've only been on SP for a little over a month but I have made a lot of lifestyle changes and have really started treating myself well for the first time in my life. I have been drinking tons more water, eating healthier, and smiling more. I've ... Read more
I am 7 years older than my little brother and our little sister is 7 years younger than he is (She'll be 14 in October). I know it's a pretty big gap in ages but we have always gotten along really well. My brother has been in college since he wa... Read more
Okay so I've only been on SP maybe about a month and I have really noticed that my weekends are where I get into trouble. I'll do so well during the week and it seems like Friday night, Saturday, & Sunday I turn into a different person. I'm tryi... Read more
Getting Back To Where I Was.
I was thinking earlier about how much I have changed in the past few years... How many mistakes I've made, etc. and then I realized that I don't feel like the same person anymore. I used to be so trusting and carefree, so social and sweet. Now I... Read more
