Today did NOT go well.
Where do I start. Emotionally it was a lousy day, and in turn, my eating was not so great. :( I woke up to my mom being snarky on an email. That started it. So I went to Starbucks to cheer myself up and work. The working happened, the cheer... Read more
Well, last evening I had a seizure, (yes I'm fine now, and so is the Energy Plug) so I spent today feeling a little wonky and tired.
Irregardless, I had a great time with an old friend who was in from out of town, and got some light exer... Read more
Last blog of the year!
Happy New Years! I did really well this year on the fitness front - I set my yearly goal last New Years at 17,177 (Don't remember how I got that # now!) and I blew it out of the water! I ended up with 18,405 minutes. I'm Very proud of that nu... Read more
Here are my revised goals for 2013 as they relate to Sparkpeople. I also fleshed out some more of the goals that my husband and I have set for ourselves for the year, but those I won't post. The goals for this year are a bit more specific than... Read more
Connecting the dots...another NSF :)
Hubby and I were talking today, about how he liked how I was looking now, while pregnant, ect. I thanked Chris for a particular conversation we'd had shortly before I decided I wanted to get healthy & joined Spark. You see, originally my main ... Read more
How do you find balance?
I have a question for everyone.
How do you find a balance between being active, and listening to your body (especially when pregnant) about when to take rest days or slow down?
I'm approaching my third trimester (I'm 26 weeks along) a... Read more
Back on Track, and Remembering
I did a great job today. I got my calories on track, and I ate healthy. I FORGOT how much food I could actually eat when I ate well! LOL :) I didn't overdo the sugar, (tho I was just a touch high in the fat department)
I've had a really h... Read more
Did pretty good today!
I'm a little over my calories today, but I didn't do too bad. I was mostly over on my drinks, not the food! I even got some exercise in, in small increments. I was pretty pleased with myself.
I had a good time with my family. I don't hav... Read more
Well, yesterday was a mess. I KNOW I had too much sugar. :( I did do better than in other years still, so that's something. I think I did reasonably on food itself (I didn't track) and I didn't get my water. I got a little bit of yoga in,... Read more

Back on track and a sugar crash
I spent the first part of today feeling like crap and not knowing why. around 4pm it hit me - I've been drinking more water the last 2 days, and controlling the amount of carbs I've been taking in. I've also been eating more food, but lower ca... Read more
Trying to cut the sugar
I've been having issues with carbs since Thanksgiving. I know it's a bit silly to try to do this right before Christmas, but I can do it. I am so sick of overdoing the sugar, but no matter what I've done, I've not been able to break it. So I... Read more
A conversation, and a revalation
Lets see, I spent the night before last at my mom's, visiting a cousin, then we went shopping for some maternity clothes. That was harder than it looked! There are like NO decent maternity places anymore. I ended up at Torrid getting slacks t... Read more
Stressful couple of days
I've not been on spark as much as I'd like lately. First I was sick, then hubby and I were both sick, then the cat and the hubby were sick! Egads! Thankfully, everyone is on the mend. As such, fitness is on the low end, except my lots of wal... Read more
My journey to my inner strength set to music
I was just going to do a blog to review my day. Then I started thinking about how far I've come in the last few years, and some of the music that's helped give me strength, or more particularly, find my own strength.
This is something th... Read more
