oh.my.goodness! I knew today was the beginning of a very busy week. My work day starts at 4:45am (I got there closer to 5am). I snuck in a 30 minute power nap after work, picked up the kids at school, stopped at the post office and now we're at ... Read more
It's funny that my last blog post was from Memorial Day ... 2013! So much has changed! I ran my 1st half marathon (at Disney World!!) (with my friend Liliana!!!) this past January 10, 2015. Woohoo! Praise God, I did it!! It was awesome!
But... Read more
My last blog post, I had set a "Memorial Day" goal. Let's see how I did!
My goal was to lose 20 to 25lbs, but I wasn't going to obsess about the number. I was going to stick to these mini goals:
-Eat better (no daily Sbux)
-Exercis... Read more
Today I set a 2013 goal: lose 20 to 25 lbs by Memorial Day weekend.
When I reset my goals here on SP, it said I could lose 2 lbs/week and hit my goal by May 23...just in time for that weekend! But instead of obsessing over that, I'm going ... Read more

Here's the amazing part of the story: I hated running.

My friend Liliana challenged me today. She encouraged me to sign up for my very first 5k Run last year. She knows that I've been thinking of doing a 10k. In fact, when I think of 2011 goals, I usually mention wanting to run a 10k.
On facebo... Read more
About a month ago, I posted a blog about how I couldn't get motivated to work out.
I hadn't really been making healthy meals, either.
It's been 1 month...no change.
So why did that happen? I think the reason is "lack of planning"... Read more
It's been a month since I blogged here on Sparkpeople. Thankfully, I didn't fall off the wagon!
I have maintained a healthy weight, and I'm very grateful for that. I may not be at 120 lbs at the start of the year, but as of this morning, I... Read more
OK, so this is TOTALLY a cause for celebration in my book. I weighed in this morning at 131.5!!!
131 lbs was my pre-pregnancy weight before my daughter was born. I think I can celebrate minus the .5lbs. :)

Time to reset! Who needs to wait until a "Monday", or a "January 1st"? I'm resetting today.
Last month, my goal was to eat unprocessed food. Even though I didn't eat 100% unprocessed, the effort to eat healthy foods jump started weight loss... Read more
I want to weigh in today so bad!! :)
I weigh myself first thing in the morning every day. It's a good way to catch creeping weight gain, if it happens, so it doesn't get out of control.
This morning, I weighed 132.5. That is 1.5 lbs a... Read more

I can't believe it!!! I stepped on the scale. It said 135. I stepped off and stepped back on again. It said 135.
When my daughter was born almost 1 year ago, I weighed 167. So it's taken me a while to lose the pregnancy weight. B... Read more
