Back in the Game
So I'm at 155lbs and out of shape. I began school yesterday and went to the gym only to figure out that I'm out of shape! I barely made 5 minutes on the Gazelle, didn't make even 1/4 of a mile, and stretching was not as comfortable as it us... Read more
Fall USF and Christmas
I am extremely happy to report that I passed my first fall semester at USF!! I wasn't even sure I could be a student since I didn't think I was university material. Being so used to community colleges, I wanted to prove myself, and I did - ... Read more
Hello Again, I've Missed You
It's been a shorter period of time that I was not on SP, and I'm pleased that I was able to come back so quickly!
I've always remembered SP and my SP family - kept all the updates and emails so I didn't forget the SP love and support! I... Read more
As much as I hate to do this, I must take a break from SP. I simply have no time to dedicate anything to SP, and for all of the info I get, I just don't have a spot in my life at the current time to devote...

Missing Myself...catching up
I haven't worked out in what feels like weeks! I can't remember the last time I went to the gym; that's not to say that it was longer than 3 weeks, but it feels quite long. The last time I went it was for a Zumba class.
A cold has come... Read more
Walking/Jogging Flatlander's Challenge 5k
Even though I went to the gym and have been training for this for several weeks, I was not prepared for the 'challenge' of uphill walking or cobblestone roads in downtown Brooksville, but with the encouragement of 2 ladies walking with me, we... Read more
Running, a first
Working out today at the gym provided very impressive: I got on the treadmill to warm up and had an incredible urge to run. I set the treadmill to 4.6 speed and began running - and kept going, and going, and going....for 7 minutes!! This i... Read more
Monthly Goal: Done and done!!
I knew I was going to make my monthly goal, but when I saw how much more minutes I actually did vs what I thought I was going to do - WOW!! Makes me want to do more.

Smaller fitting T-shirts
When I was pregnant and not ready to buy maternity shirts (I knew between my husband's shirts and the many many oversized shirts that didn't fit me from 20 years ago that I had more than enough to get through to my 6th month) I found my old t... Read more
That Uncomfortable Feeling in the Gym
Am I the only one who goes through this:
I am feeling good in the gym, getting pumped by my music and in a groove when a more attractive and skinnier person comes in the area that I'm in. I instantly feel insecure, sad and angry. Why i... Read more
What a big title for the goal this year...going from 165lbs to 125lbs (or whatever healthy frame my body weight stops at for a year of going to the gym and training on the treadmill, elliptical and doing other weight machine work).
I've ... Read more
Sad but Going
I realized as I was changing my goals for this coming new year that I had to change my weight loss goal (was 200 going down to 145) and I didn't make the goal this year, but then again I haven't gone completely good with not eating sweets or ... Read more
Discouraged but not Defeated
I see the end of this year is quickly approaching, and I see I haven't met my goal of 145lbs. What I have done is gone above and beyond my fitness minutes! I have to give credit where credit is due :)
I am discouraged that I haven't g... Read more
Areas to Lose
I don't know how much I have in each area of my body that is able to be lost, but I can guess-timate:
Losing a few pounds in my chest, which is pounding out a few arm exercises each time I go to the gym, for a few months at least
Lo... Read more
