LOVE my Fab 4!!!
I am SO excited to have all of us back together again! Nothing like good buds to keep you and your nonsense and excuses in check!
I've got workouts planned, healthy food stocked and I'm chugging the ... Read more
Onward and Downward Again!!!
Wow, so okay, I haven't blogged in a loooong time!
September was a VERy busy month, an out of town trip to the Smoky Mountains and a wedding for dear, close friends and my 8th wedding anniversary...we were all over the place, and natch, so ... Read more
Still banking those fitness minutes...still feeling it!
Oh, the strain I have put on my poor 34 year-old knees by carrying this extra weight around for so long! I think they would probably be okay if my office wasn't in a historical home that has steps from the parking lot, steps to the front door a... Read more
Hurts so good!
Whew! I have been packing in the fit-NASS the past few days! Gym workout Friday and this morning and a KILLER hour of Zumba on Saturday!! Yes, for me, that's packing it in :)
I have picked my first 5k as the YMCA's Trick or Trot on Octob... Read more
This running "thing"
I treadmill'ed it again yesterday at the gym and actually kept a steady pace for 12 consecutive minutes. That's the longest stretch I've run since high school...and that 12 minutes was the mile I HAD to run for P.E.! I kept going another 13 mi... Read more
I ran. And I ran and ran and ran. And didn't die!
I have been playing love/hate with the workouts again, so when my buddy called to reschedule our Sunday workout (because she spent all morning loading a truck and trailer with the logs that came from the tree they had cut down last week), I knew... Read more
Well, it's already July and I've not yet stepped up my game to where it needs to be, so I'm writing down some goals to try and keep myself accountable:
180 cardio minutes a week - the 90-120 I've been doing...not cutting it!
3 strength... Read more
I had Thanksgiving for lunch...in June!
These are leftovers from Sunday night's dinner - roasted skinless turkey breast, mashed sweet potatoes with cinnamon and brow... Read more
Fail to plan...plan to fail!
So, I've been scooting along, making better decisions most of the time and generally being healthier, but the title of this blog is the story of my life right now.
On one hand, I love to plan things; parties, meals, shopping trips, vacation... Read more
Onward and downward
I have been sticking to plan for the most part...what plan? Eat less, move more!! That's about as far as I have gotten into the whole "plan" thing. I need SOME structure, but too much = IMPLODE for me. So, for now, ELMM + H20 is W... Read more
Back to Blogging and Fast Food FAIL
Nothing like ignoring Spark for a whole year and being "surprised" when you fail to make any progress on the weight loss front, is there?
Well, friends, I'm back! No promises on a schedule of blogs or anything like that, but I'm tracking c... Read more
What's that again? Baby steps? Got it.
If you are tired of reading my on-again, off-again posts about how I'm gonna do it "this time", I can't say that I blame you. I'm getting kind of tired of living it, too. But, as they say, you only quit when you give up trying, and friends, I'... Read more
Back to Basics
I'm not going into a long backstory about how I got so far off-track. Plainly stated, my inherent laziness, combined with my love for food got the better of me and I stopped caring. 12 pounds later, I'm starting to care again.
Saturday mo... Read more

The good pain
I am currently consumed by "the good pain". The kind of pain that comes with getting off your tookus and DOING SOMETHING.
Lots has happened since I wrote my last blog.
I gave up. Just for a day or two, but it happened. I totally gav... Read more
