Frustrated w/Results. :(
So, after months of hovering around 152-153...I'm back up to 163. This happened nearly overnight - in a matter of a few weeks, really - and is despite me exercising (running, elliptical, tennis, and weights) more than ever. I burned over 4,000 c... Read more
5 more pounds...5 more pounds...
I'm trying to post more regularly in order to enhance my SP experience :) but also because my only real-life buddy in this journey is my son, and sometimes I'm not sure that's by choice. I run alone, and I don't have anyone to whom I hold myself... Read more
FOUR Years of the Spark!
Wow...I can't believe it! Where did the time go? It's been four years since I started tracking my food and exercise on SparkPeople. Sure, I've fallen off the wagon a couple times, had a few missteps, taken a look at myself and said "oops" - but ... Read more
Time for a blog entry!
So, it's almost summer and I have a closet full of clothes that don't fit. I bought them all at my goal weight, which I reached two summers ago thanks to Sparkpeople. Last summer, I could kind of squeeze into some of them (and ripped the crotch ... Read more
So, how much did I gain?
November was a bad, bad month...lots of eating, little exercise, and overall a pretty piss-poor attitude towards all things healthy. What a funk I was in!
December brought about my one-year SP anniversary, and renewed interest in maintainin... Read more
One Year of the Spark!
Yesterday was my one-year anniversary with SP!! What possessed me to start my healthier lifestyle during the holiday season? I don't know...but I'm glad I did!
Over the past year, I've gone from 236 pounds to 159. My waist has gone from 37... Read more
Time to get back on track!
Okay, so my sucky eating habits have persisted. I'm now a night grazer. I NEVER was before, even though I know it's a problem for others. All of a sudden, I can't seem to get enough to eat at night, even though I'm probably not hungry.
I've... Read more
Santa Clarita Half-Marathon!
My running and healthy eating habits have been entirely non-existent the past couple weeks. I can't explain the eating...but I've been having trouble with my legs and foot. I keep waking up with cramps in my legs...not good when you're trying to... Read more
Put a fork in my marriage, it's done!
Done, as in finished and over! I went to court yesterday and the judge granted the divorce. My ex didn't show, and he wasn't expected to. After court I went and changed my phone number, so I don't have to put up with his calls and text messages ... Read more
Will somebody explain to me...
Why is it the California has a waiting period for divorces? I don't get the premise for this waiting period. My hearing is tomorrow, and the divorce will likely be granted at that time. But it won't be final until 6 months after the date I filed... Read more
Awesome article re:self-image
I've always had trouble with self-image, and it has prevented me from taking a lot of chances or experiencing a lot of what life had to offer. I'm not a huge Oprah fan, I've never watched her show, but I found this article on CNN and it really h... Read more
I went shopping today for some skirts to wear with my boots for winter. The size 4s fit well....woohoo!!!! That's a huge improvement, since today the scale said I was up 8 pounds (water weight). Definitely makes me feel better about sticking wit... Read more
I feel awful!!!
Okay, so TTOM was due....a long time ago? I'm at least a week late. In the meantime, I'm bloated and crampy and moody...just a real joy to be around! Nothing seems to be making it any better...not exercise, not eating healthy, not eating poorly,... Read more
WOW - I did it!
So last week was the first time I ran over 10 miles...I'm happy to report that today I ran a whopping 13.33 miles!!!! That's more than my half marathon! I still can't believe I did it...especially on only 1.5 hours of sleep. I'm really proud of ... Read more
Tomorrow is a big day!
Okay, so the training for the half marathon continues...and tomorrow is the big day, then day I will finally run 10 miles! I've never ran that far before, I'm totally excited and psyched for this opportunity. I already have the route planned, an... Read more
