Happy to be Running?
Yes, I am! I actually had a pretty good laugh at myself this morning. I've ran twice this week with my trainer and was SO afraid to do it since all the drama with my foot. We only did a mile each time, but that is just a warm up to lifting. We w... Read more
Same Old Story.....
So here I am again, complaining about everything, hence the title, Same Old Story.
I've been sidelined from walking and running for a couple months now and the elliptical just isn't the thing for me. I've been doing it 3 times a week before... Read more
Just a Rant
I wish I knew what I was doing wrong. I cannot budge on losing weight, despite working out and watching my diet. I either have to kill myself in the gym or starve to see any little bit of progress. I hate to sound like this, but sometimes I just... Read more
At least that's what my trainer call it! LOL
I never know what to expect from Luke, just when you get used to a certain way of working out, he completely changes things up on us. He trains me and my friend Paul at the same time, so we get a... Read more
The Day After The First Day
So yesterday was my first day back to the gym, working out with my old trainer Luke and another old friend, Paul. Wow, just being in the gym again gave me the confidence I need to do this. The last time I was with Luke, I lost over 40 pounds and... Read more
Just a little short blog today.
I'm wondering why I can lose weight when not exercising, more so than when I do? My diet is pretty much the same either way and it's pretty confusing to me to say the least. I've been stuck at this weight for a ... Read more
Back to Spark!
Well, not really, I haven't 'left" I've just been tracking on my phone app. But, my husband got me a Fitbit for Christmas (after me telling him to get it!). So, I just found out that if I track online that my food with be synced to the Fitbit ap... Read more
Well, it's been 6 months since my husband was diagnosed with lupus. It's been an up and down 6 months for sure! Since he got his meds regulated, it hasn't been too bad. He lost about 50 pounds in the couple of months before they figured out what... Read more
Life with Lupus - The Beginning
Dizziness can be such a crippling thing. My husband found that out last February when he started feeling a little under the weather. He went to see our family doctor, who gave him meds for his stomach and was told that if he wasn't feeling bette... Read more
Life with Lupus- Part 1, The Diagnosis
Well after two hellacious months with my husband being sick and hospitalized twice, they've finally figured out he has lupus. Thanks to me. Yes, thanks to me. I've been asking him to talk to the doctors about lupus being a possibility and he alw... Read more
I was talking to my old trainer yesterday and I keep coming back to something he said. I was asking him about using balls to train and he told me I should come back to his gym, there's a hip hop class (def not me!) and a fitness class for streng... Read more
So where do I go to find it?
Did a few updates on my page, haven't been on here regularly for a long time now. I track my food, water and exercise on my phone, so easy. But I'm finding that it's a habit, not something I'm actually thinking... Read more
Update on the Carbs/Health
Ugh! I had my bloodwork done again and this time most of the things they were worried about are getting better. I wish someone would have listened to me when I told them about the steroid injections. My thyroid levels are better, but the doctor ... Read more
Bad News Made Good!
I had my bloodwork done last month, and followed up with my family doctor. He tells me my thyroid levels are down, meaning my meds need increased. I had just told my husband the same thing a couple weeks before that I thought my thyroid was mess... Read more

Oh No, NOT Again!
I feel like all I do is complain when I post a blog! I've been working out pretty consistently, 2-3 times a week at the gym with my trainer, and 2-3 times a week at home on the treadmill. This isn't just putting in time, it's me pushing myself t... Read more
