Motivation vs. Volition

Thursday, November 04, 2010      28 comments

"I envy your motivation." I'm so sick of hearing this I could spit! Look, when people think of the word "motivation" they often think of this mystical creature, this invisible feeling that comes from God-knows-where, deep within our souls,... Read more

Woah-Man Overboard!!

Wednesday, November 03, 2010      14 comments

I was so excited yesterday to have a day off from work that didn't have to include a day off from the gym. (Hate it when my gym closes for holidays, but I understand...) I knew I wanted to renew my Zumba muscles and that I had to ST, but I als... Read more

My First Yoga Class

Tuesday, November 02, 2010      22 comments

Since today is a holiday for state workers (YAY! Election Day!), I get to work short days this week, 8:30am-4:30pm. That means that I will be able to get to the gym by 5:30pm instead of 7pm, which opens up a few more classes for me this week. ... Read more

Weekend Plans and Rest Days

Friday, October 29, 2010      11 comments

Wednesday was my SIBCCT night, and I burned over 1,000 SP calories. Thursday I followed my son's lead and started out on the stationary bike, and reminded myself how BORING it is and how much I hate it. We set our time for 30 minutes, but ... Read more

Another One Bites the Dust

Thursday, October 28, 2010      14 comments

...another pound of fat, that is! That's how I like to think of my workouts sometimes - me, blasting away those calories, calling my muscles into battle against those lazy little fat cells that do little more than take up space in my body. A b... Read more

Annoyed

Wednesday, October 27, 2010      20 comments

Okay, so last night I had a meeting with the nutritionist. Sure, my fault for giving her the wrong time and having to miss part of Zumba, but I didn't expect to be in there for an HOUR and miss ALL of Zumba. I literally tried talking faster as... Read more

Fear of Expectations

Tuesday, October 26, 2010      19 comments

Yesterday I did nothing. I didn't eat according to my schedule. I didn't workout. I didn't even go to work. I didn't even Spark but for a few minutes. And while I felt that twinge of guilt every now and again, I shoved the guilt down and we... Read more

Saturday, October 23, 2010      18 comments

Okay, let me first get you the information I got today from the initial contact meeting I had with the PT lady at the gym. She was running a little late with her previous appointment, so I didn't really get in to see her until around 10:45a... Read more

Re-Evaluate

Friday, October 22, 2010      13 comments

Yesterday I followed the same basic eating pattern I've been using for weeks. The problem is, ever since I started this training and actually started running, I've been HUNGRY lately. I've gone over on my calories the past two days now and tha... Read more

Is the World Changing, or Is It Just Me?

Thursday, October 21, 2010      20 comments

For the past few weeks I've been noticing something. It's like a shift has happened, and I wasn't even aware that it was happening. We read all the time about obesity and weight loss. Heck, I've been learning about diets my entire life. But ... Read more

1/11/11 Starting Template and Thoughts

Wednesday, October 20, 2010      12 comments

I went ahead and bit the bullet and joined the 11 by 1/11/11 challenge. The only difference is that (after I realized it wasn't NOVEMBER 11th of this year we were shooting for) I decided I'm setting my bar a little higher. ***** I do dec... Read more

Yesterday Was a Good Day...Kinda (& WTF Template)

Tuesday, October 19, 2010      14 comments

Yesterday I was rejoicing in the 6 month Spark glow. I decided that, plateau or no plateau, reaching my goal of 70 pounds in 6 months or not, I deserved a reward for the hard work I've put in in the past 6 months. So I gave myself 100 bucks ou... Read more

What I Learned in Six Months on Spark

Monday, October 18, 2010      41 comments

Well, it's official. Today is my 6 month Sparkversary. I began my journey here on April 18, 2010 with no real sense of how things would turn out and whether this time would be THE time. Now, six months later, I'm almost 70 pounds lighter and ... Read more
