Happy New Year!
I took a little break from spark towards the end of 2010, it was a mixture of lots of things going on and the monotony of logging my life was getting to me a little. As a result the exercise and healthy eating dropped a litt... Read more
It's that time again folks. Time for a little monthly goal setting, but first an update on July's challenges.

Yesterday was an odd day in the world of me. I ran.
I ate quite a big lunch, and then quite a big dinner. Blew the daily goals, but its ok, I've had a great week and I will just manage to that and I enjoyed everything I had with friends, so... Read more
I love living in an apartment building. It has all the wonderful amenities I need, and at this stage of my life its right where I want to be. The walls are thick in this building, so I don't hear any neighbours, the doormen are nice, and its a h... Read more
I've learnt so much on my spark journey thus far; lots about food, exercise, motivation and so much more. The journey is going well, I've been dealing with challenges as they come, and coming out on top every time. The weight is falling off stea... Read more
Yesterday I went for a swim, and I usually do 100 laps, and I did do 100 laps, but it was a struggle. A serious struggle. No energy, tired, and I think my late nights and trip had caught up with me.

I changed my weight loss ticker today to include the weight I lost before I started using sparkpeople. I lost about 40lbs a few years ago when I went exercise crazy for a few months. I ate less during this time too, but it wasn't necessarily the... Read more
Over the last couple of weeks, I have hit the -25lbs mark since starting my spark journey. That's 70lbs from my heaviest weight!
I have noticed some difference. I've dropped 6inc in my trousers, my face looks thinner, clothes fit a little ... Read more
I'm not sure about this wagon thing. First of all, i'm not even sure it's that safe, because people are always falling off it. Why not get a bus to your destination, you will probably get there quicker, and safer.

Ok, so after I changed my status to "back on the wagon" last time, I fell off the very next day. I promised myself I would not change it again, until I had been rolling a long on the wagon for at least a week. Well today I'm proud that has been ... Read more
