My Third Run

Sunday, July 12, 2009      6 comments

Each time I do this run, it seems SO hard at the beginning... then as I'm on the way back out, and it's easier, I am reminded that it's deceptively flat; it's actually a gradual uphill the whole way in! I shaved another minute off my run today,... Read more

My Second Run

Tuesday, June 30, 2009      6 comments

The Spring Creek trail near my house is SO gorgeous any time of year. Sometimes I think I should mix things up more and go other places to hike/walk/run. And I do, some. But it's so easy and so beautiful! Today was my second time out wit... Read more

My SparkPeople Journey, By The Numbers

Thursday, December 11, 2008      4 comments

It's a day for celebration! No, I am not quite at my goal. But my 1-pound loss marks 25 pounds lost since I joined SparkPeople! So being the numbers person that I (sometime... Read more

Grumpy

Monday, November 24, 2008      5 comments

Yeah, that's me. I feel grumpy. And because I feel grumpy, I'm sick of Spark People. I'm sick of worrying about my food. I'm sick of going to track my dinner calories before I decide whether or not I can have something small for dessert. I ... Read more

Small Victories

Sunday, November 02, 2008      5 comments

I think all moms of little ones have a mixed bag of challenges when it comes to weight loss. One the one hand, it is sometimes possible to share a meal with a preschooler, therefore eating less yourself (and they are still quite happy, and full... Read more

Another Learning Opportunity

Tuesday, October 21, 2008      4 comments

What is this whole journey but a string of learning opportunities, one after another? Isn't it amazing that, despite how much we learn, we still make some profoundly bad choices? I have a sweet tooth, and I learned years ago that, when try... Read more

Happy Anniversary To Me!

Thursday, September 11, 2008      3 comments

Happy anniversary to me! A year ago today, I was web-surfing (which is actually quite unusual for me) and found a mention of SparkPeople on a strangerís blog about weight loss. I checked it outÖ and the rest, as they say, is history. Iíve... Read more

What I've Learned: An Update

Sunday, August 17, 2008      2 comments

One of the things I love most about SparkPeople is how much I've LEARNED! I've learned so much about the foods that I eat, and how they break down into carbs, fats and proteins. I've learned that the days that I feel best at the end of the da... Read more

Calories... I don't like them

Friday, August 01, 2008      1 comments

I'm really struggling to stay within my calorie range, ever since I re-assessed and changed my goals to get things moving again. I still am not aiming for aggressive weight loss; it's still very slow and steady. And I'm doing great on exercise... Read more

Note to self: Remember to mix it up

Tuesday, July 22, 2008      0 comments

You know, there's lots of articles on SP about plateaus, boredom, and the need to mix up your exercise, for all sorts of reasons. I've read many of them, they're really good articles! And I kept thinking "oh, but I am!" Some days I walk (fast... Read more

How Things Happen In SparkLand

Wednesday, July 16, 2008      3 comments

OK, so on one of my teams, a challenge was posted. I've never actually done a Spark Challenge before, of any kind. It was to find a team member's page (someone you don't know), learn about them, post a comment to them, and then return to the c... Read more

Am I The Cart, Or The Horse??

Monday, July 14, 2008      1 comments

Sometimes, many times, the time that works out for me to workout, is when DD sleeps... around 3-4 in the afternoon. The fact that this coincides with my body's natural sleepy time in the afternoon can sometimes be tough. Sometimes, I rally: th... Read more

The Ups & Downs of Sparking: UP

Wednesday, July 09, 2008      0 comments

I've been meaning to post this for a week or so; it seemed to balance out tonight's "DOWN" post well! I have a relatively new friend, Leslie (she actually joined Spark in December, MURFNLES, but has totally fallen off the wagon the last few... Read more

The Ups & Downs of Sparking: DOWN

Wednesday, July 09, 2008      0 comments

OK, so I was going to post the "UP" post first, but I've always been one of those people who, when you ask "which do you want first, the good news or the bad news", I always say the bad first. So what the heck happened to me today? The mor... Read more

Today Is Lousy

Saturday, June 28, 2008      1 comments

Today sucks. I'm tired. So very, very tired, from 3 weeks of not sleeping well. I am not handling 6 days of single motherhood very well. The puppy is exhausting me, our daughter is exhausting me, just getting through the day is exhaust... Read more
