Mad at myself but moving ON
A coworker visiting from the UK for three days (meaning lunches out and extra meetings), and then my kids' Spring Break (and mine, I took the week off) derailed me. It IS my downfall, when I'm off my normal routine. I don't track food even thoug... Read more
Last week's successes and 1 pound down
It was a great week if I do say so! Really helps that my bosses have been out of office or busy - no requests for lunch out, and no stressful days, in the past 2 weeks! So I've been enjoying being able to plan my OWN days and not have them plann... Read more
Okay, it's spring, time for renewal!
I'm back and newly motivated. A Saturday spent (doing very little) at a school event recently wiped me out -- I was just a chaperone, sitting at the First Aid table and walking around slowly, most of the day. But by the end of it I was just DONE... Read more
Feeling a little good, a little blah
Hey there. I haven't been here in a while. I tend to get a little bit addicted to this site and start spending wayyyyyy too much time on it, particularly during work hours (oops) so I've had to cut back. Also, I've not been very faithful to my h... Read more
First GOOOOOOAL! Achievement Unlocked!
I am doing the happy dance! I made it to my first goal, AND I'm back in the 130s now, which I haven't seen on my scale since before my kids were born, I think. TEN YEARS AGO.

I am down 7 pounds!
Hey, it's been A WHILE, hasn't it?!
My last post here was in May, and I was not happy. I had been on SP for 2+ years, with NO real progress. Argh. Not that it was SP's fault -- it wasn't. It was my fault. I wasn't being accountable or dili... Read more
How many times?
I've quit and restarted here so many times I've lost count. My first login here at SP was 2011, I think? And I've yet to lose the first 10 pounds I wanted to lose. I'm very tempted right now to delete this SP account so no one will see all those... Read more
REASONS I LIKE EXERCISE
I've not been exercising even though I really do want to. I've had lots of excuses. Here is my pep-talk to REMEMBER that I LIKE EXERCISING (DUHHHHH!!)
I like feeling good-sore
I like feeling winded (sometimes)
I like feeling su... Read more
Glad it's Friday!
This week, man! It has been crazy. With the kids out of school Monday and then unexpectedly Tuesday, and me having to attend a national meeting Mon/Tues and then play catch-up the rest of the week at work... it has worn me right out.
Today ... Read more
I had to slow down (=stop) blogging here because it had become such a distraction for me. I could spend a lot of time I was supposed to be working, over here "playing" with Sparkfriends, reading lots of motivating things and.... not doing my wor... Read more
I'm grateful my neighborhood makes a big deal over Halloween, because it means I get a lot of nice (albeit slower than usual) walking done that night! Helps work off the Snickers..es....

Confession time - Weekend
I must have mixed up "cheat day" with "cheat weekend."
Friday we ordered pizza for our movie night with the kids, and I ate more than my planned 1.5 pieces. Pizza... I can't resist it, man.
Saturday we went out to dinner with some fr... Read more
2 Good Days
I've had 2 good days of eating and getting around 20 minutes of exercise. Much better than I had been doing! I'm pleased. Even had Mexican food yesterday and kept my hands out of the chips basket.
Tonight is a fundraiser for my kids' school... Read more
Dusting off the ol' SP blog....
I've been unhappy about my pants not fitting again. I want to be "back" and get my good habits re-booted. I want to have that feeling of slight superiority because I'm a person who works out. (So I need to start working out again!) I know that's... Read more
My August is chip-less!
Tortilla chips, that is.
Yesterday I had one, but I folded up the bag and put it away.
My nemesis, those things, and their accompanying guacamole and queso dip! Even salsa makes me want to eat a million chips. It's embarrassing when ... Read more
