I don't really do cheat days. I eat healthy all the time, I don't diet, I don't binge (or at least, I try.)
Today though, I'm just plain tired of tracking, and still hungry... so I'm going to just declare it a cheat day, and start over tom... Read more
So the vertigo's still got my head, though it's improved, fortunately. I can sit, at least, without my head spinning. Standing, though... that's another story. It's better.
I have done very well with the eating today; I dropped my activity... Read more
Okay, so I know that there are two problems with my running.
1) Crappy shoes. Seriously, my running shoes are broken down... they've worn down on the inside tread, and provide no support anymore. They're fraying something terrible. I'm wor... Read more
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
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.

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

This is the stuff that eating disorders are MADE of. How can any parent humili... Read more
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've spent the last three days over my calorie goals. Yesterday, I did well until we went to bed. You read that right. I was IN BED, and my husband surprised me with fresh vanilla milk, and cookies.
I couldn't say no to the... Read more
Today at the gym, I got some really bad news. My favorite trainer, the one who teaches the awesome HIIT class, abs, and step, is leaving our gym! She's disgruntled with the management, and is moving to a better gym... unfortunately, my contract ... Read more
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
So one of my biggest fears in the next year is summer vacation.
Here's my current fitness routine: I wake up at 7:30, grab a protein shake, get my oldest child ready for school, head out between 8 and 8:30 (depending on whether my kid eats... Read more
So today was pretty much family day.
I started out the day with taking my oldest child to her soccer game. She got her picture made, and then my husband very kindly offered to stay there with her so I could go to yoga! This thrilled me bey... Read more
