Because I'm bored!
I stole these questions from ANNE7X7
1. Why are you on Spark?
Because I felt fat and alone in my attempt to be healthier. Because I'd just broken up with an @$$ and needed something to keep me occupied. I stayed because it worked.

I did not fall down on my face.
I did not trip or stumble or even look stupid, though I did have problems getting my jacket off. (A minor glitch.)
I enjoyed myself. I met new people and actually knew one of the other girl's parents. Sm... Read more
I'm a model, ya know what I mean? (an update)
So, I went to Haute Pink Boutique last night for my fitting and all my fears were allayed. First off, the clothes (through the window, I checked it out from my car) were super cute and not at all "skanky" or "racy" or whatever. As soon as I came... Read more
Oops or Yay?
Today was pretty much like every other day. I didn't feel too great this morning (I think that means I can no longer eat pizza, but that's another story) but I gradually felt better. Lunch came around and I sat down to my spaghettios and nonfat ... Read more
Minding My Own Business
I think I might be a busybody. I've never really thought of myself that way, but lately I've been taking too much interest in business that's not my own. Not at all. Yet, I can't help myself.
Here's the situation: My friend and her husband ... Read more
Razorback Game and My Thoughts on Progress so Far
So, if you read my blog entry about 25 goals to meet by the time I turn 25, you know that one of my goals is to see a Razorback football game. Mission accomplished! And, OMG, I forgot how excited I get when I'm actually at the game compared to w... Read more
I Know What You Did Last Night
Yesterday, I was in a really down mood and actually wrote a blog post about it, but didn't post it because it was a little TMI and probably not completely true (I was going through a moment of self-hatred and was being really hard on myself). Al... Read more
25x25 (and on being in-between)
I'm in that in-between size now. I'm not an 8, but I'm not sure if I'm a 6. I just know that my work clothes are starting to get baggy (they've always been a bit loose) and I no longer feel attractive or professional in them. I feel a bit like I... Read more
I'll admit it, I'm a bit obsessed with health and fitness and like to talk about it. So, people who are not obsessed with health and fitness (and never will be) tend to tell me to zip it.
But they start it.
With such innocent comments... Read more
"You're not fat, so why are you trying to lose weight?"
I get that question a lot. Technically, I've never been overweight (though I have toed that line). I've always maintained a healthy BMI. My blood pressure is always spot on. I don't have any medical problems. I'm a healthy, healthy girl.

Feeling Better and More Focused
Last night I sat down with my husband and we figured out a plan for our finances. What's funny is that I stressed out so much about it, was so nervous he'd be offended by my suggestions or think they were stupid, or argue about them, and it only... Read more
Stop That! (Identity Crisis #342)
Have I mentioned I'm a perfectionist? It's something I struggle to get over, because it makes my life a lot more complicated than it should be, but I can't help it. And sometimes it's like OCD, and it gets worse and inadvertently I'll get depres... Read more
I had a pretty fun weekend. Saturday I cleaned and worked out and then went over to my parents' house for some burgers, beer and a hayride (still kept in my calorie range). But the real fun part of the weekend was Sunday. It was a beautiful day,... Read more
Are You With Me....Or Against Me?
I'm upset this morning. It could have to do with only getting three hours of sleep last night (which makes me moody), but it also deals with how alone I feel in this journey to being healthy and fit. And how I feel like the one person who should... Read more
Sometimes Being Selfish is a Good Thing
I've been accused of being a selfish person. Silly me, I used to believe it, too.
And then I realized that I wasn't being selfish, and that the word was being used as a weapon. To humble me. Lower me. Make me doubt myself and my goals.
