I knew March was going to be a difficult month for me. It's proved to be exactly that. Two birthdays, two business trips, a new very time consuming project launch at work and a holiday all thrown into a hectic month. Needless to say, I'm excited... Read more

Pre-kids, I remember being here. I lost over 50 pounds. I felt fantastic. I remember I had a routine down. I'd workout everyday. I'd track my food everyday. I'd track my water everyday. That's how I was able to lose 50 pounds. Anyway- point is, ... Read more

I'm on the consistency coaster. I've got a routine down and am feeling better for it. At this point it's really not about the number on the scale for me. I want to feel strong and healthy. I want to fit into old clothes. I want to feel confident... Read more
Old Habits Die Hard
Sunday, January 31, 2016      7 comments

I had Friday off, hung out with the kids. Hubby wanted to go ice fishing early, so I wasn't able to get to the gym. Being home all day is hard for me. I find myself snacking and eating way more than I should. When I'm at work, everything's been ... Read more

So, I've been really good at getting my workout in every morning. Today, tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday I won't be able to get it done in the AM. Hubby has to work... So I have to go to work super early- which leaves me with PM gym time. I'm al... Read more
Consistency Pays Off

Very happy with my loss this week. I've really strived for my step goal every day for the past week. I hit the gym all 6 of my planned days. Even nearly hit my step goal on my off day. I've avoided sugar all week, very limited carbs and drank my... Read more
Update on me
Sunday, January 17, 2016      8 comments

So, I've been away for a while. Things got a little crazy for a bit and I had to let something things go. Unfortunately, the time it takes to blog on spark was one of those things. I didn't throw in the towel with my fitness and eating. Although... Read more

I want to thank my spark friends who have come by my page to check up on me the last couple months. I'm okay. Don't worry, I've still been healthy and have actually lost some in the time I've not sparked. I'll do another blog later when I have a... Read more
Organized Life
Wednesday, October 28, 2015      5 comments

An ultimate goal of mine is to be as organized at home as I am at work. This can be a hard thing. I saw a meme once that describes my struggle perfectly. It said: "Cleaning with kids is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos." With a 6yr ol... Read more
Maintain is better than gain...
Tuesday, October 27, 2015      5 comments

So like it or not, I seem to be just maintaining what I've lost thus far. Looking back over the past month, I've gained and lost and gained and lost the same pound. My weight really has not changed much over the past month. While maintaining is ... Read more

I've struggled. This journey has not been perfect. Life is simply not perfect. I've had bad days. Personal problems, we've all got them. But am I going to allow my problems to side track me on this journey? Am I going to let one thing that's not... Read more
Gained 1.3 lbs
Tuesday, October 13, 2015      11 comments

I had a rough week. Which turned into me drinking things I shouldn't drink and eating things that I shouldn't eat. Sitting around, instead of working out. It was a bad week. I allowed myself to slip way to much. I could make a ton of excuses abo... Read more
