I declare today a cheat day

Saturday, April 07, 2012      1 comments

So I love my sparkpoints... I find them terribly motivating, and I love being able to give sparkgoodies to other people. It's a good way to be accountable. And I'm approaching a 60 day login streak! Today, though, I'm AT MY MAX. All I have... Read more

I jinxed myself... now the room is spinning!

Thursday, April 05, 2012      5 comments

A couple of days ago, I was bragging to my husband about the fact that I haven't been sick, at ALL, since before I started working out 7 months ago. No colds, no sniffles, no sneezing, no nothing. Well, I clearly jinxed myself. Last night... Read more

So today was a day of firsts. We'd planned to make pizza for supper yesterday, but an unplanned trip to the Mexican restaurant and and unforseen expenditure at Walmart of $145 (!) derailed those plans. I DID get two new workout shirts, though. ... Read more

Taking up the slack... and pain!

Saturday, March 31, 2012      5 comments

Ouch, ouch, ouch. My usual Friday body blast class was cancelled because the instructor had a death in the family, but another of the instructors happened to be there, and we convinced him to do the class with us. This is the guy that does... Read more

I need a pick me up... Off track!

Thursday, March 29, 2012      2 comments

Breakfast is my bane

Tuesday, March 27, 2012      7 comments

I'm discovering that breakfast is the meal that makes or breaks me. A bad start at breakfast sets the tone for the whole day, and I struggle to meet my caloric goals for the day. Today I treated myself to a sausage biscuit from McDonald's... Read more
