Having a no-good-very-bad... weekend.
Was up all night with moderate to severe stomach pain (really concerned about appendicitis) that now appears to have subsided.
Feeling weak and shaky and hot. Driving to the doctor's office now, wis... Read more
Reading other people's blogs always inspires me to write my own. It's more or less one of the few ways I've been staying on track this time. One of the most popular blogs at the moment is one about how the "friends" we have are not the ones who ... Read more
Well for sure.
On Mother's Day, my mom and I got our nails done. My entire life, I have been a compulsive nail biter. Never low enough to hurt or get infected (like my boyfriend's nails) but it kept them trimmed and gave me something to do with my hands. I got... Read more
I've always really been into weight lifting. It appeals to my habit of crossing normal gender boundaries (like being an engineer). I can, as of last night, bench 75 pounds (10 reps, 5x). So I've spent the last hour or so researching muscle build... Read more
Motivation of the Day: Wives
I woke up this morning and got on SparkPeople. I stared at my reflection in the computer screen and thought, "damn, when I grow up, I wanna be a trophy wife!".
So there you go, motivation of the day.

Just some thinking...
I've been looking back at my "reports" for the last six months. I've been more or less doing SparkPeople hardcore for a solid six months.
I'd say this is an accomplishment. I'm only down five pounds from where I started (I was down 25 at o... Read more

Motivation of the Day
Motivation of the Day: I do NOT want to end up with a picture of my butt on a local news segment where the caption is "ARE AMERICANS GROWING FATTER? WHEN IS FAT- TOO FAT?". Likewise, I don't want to end up the same way with a picture of my butt ... Read more
Changing things up
I'm in Houston this week because I needed a break. It gives me an escape from my really high stress family life. I did however, just get a job at Home Depot, so I'm headed home on Friday for orientation. I'm missing some school, but I emailed my... Read more
In need of help. :(

Day 15? Whoops.
Everyone is doing MARVELOUSLY in the competition, I'm so proud of you all!
I wish I could be prouder of myself, because I feel like I've been off the wagon for four days or so, all days over 2000 calories. I've been tracking, but this last ... Read more
I didn't realize how long it's been since I've blogged. I think blogging is probably one of the most important things for me to do, and I've been neglecting it. At the same time, I've been neglecting my health. Guys- hold me accountable. If I ha... Read more
Day Three: Uh oh!
So I've been fighting hard to try and beat Gigalena here since the competition started- but she's had me every day so far. :D She wants it just as badly as I do, except she... Read more
