Veggies are my friend...even if I'm sick of them!
Trying to find new and exciting ways to eat vegetables without adding tons of cream or cheese is SO hard. I've been eating a lot of mashed cauliflower and I'm just sick of it! I was desperate for something different and determined not to blow my... Read more

Thankful for the SP App!
Ten days back on SparkPeople and I'm already 4 pounds down. I am so pleased with my progress. It hasn't been too hard to stick with this time around either. I guess I'm finally just ready to make a change again. I've talked, griped and compl... Read more

I did it again ;)
Yup, another morning of not wanting to exercise. I made my best effort to NOT exercise this morning, too, even watching a movie with the kids as soon as they got up. I tried to use the excuse that DD is sick as my excuse to not exercise. But ... Read more

One Week Down
I'm back. After feeling like such a schlump yesterday, it was much easier to get up and do what I knew I should today. Sometimes failing to follow through actually lets you see how good "just doing it" feels. So, even though I was disappointe... Read more

Sunday plans and birthday cakes
Unless I get up shockingly early tomorrow, I am not planning to exercise. I've recently started singing on my church's praise team, so I have to be there by 9 a.m. for practice. That's pretty early for me since I'm not used to having to leave ... Read more
Best Laid Plans
I had such great plans for yesterday, and I lost control of my day. That's not exactly true. I really gave up control. But I have a reason.
I'm going to be working like crazy for the next week. As I was sitting with the kids having brea... Read more
