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
wow! It's been close to a year since my last blog ... and a LOT has changed. Since last April, I got a job offer, relocated from California to Texas, started a new job, my son started kindergarten (!), daughter turned 2, hubby found the "job" of... Read more
I'd been gone from Sparkpeople for a bit, but I haven't been "inactive"! I've just been tracking my running with the Runkeeper app on my iPhone. :)
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. :)
Oh, and I think it's super ... Read more
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 auditioned for my community theatre's The Sound of Music...and got the part of Maria!

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

If I lose one more pound, I'll be able to post the "Lost 10 Lbs" image on my sparkpage! I'm excited! :)
A few weeks ago I trained, using a "couch to 5k" program my friend Liliana put together for me. I loved it, but I didn't lose weight.
