Just had a lovely 2-drink lunch on the company dime! We enjoyed "Skinny Citrus Coolers" and fish tacos al fresco. I only had one-point-five drinks, BTW. Not the most calorie-friendly lunch but it could have been worse, and there's definitely som... Read more
NSV! and Qs about diet drinks
Just trying to keep myself accountable by blogging every day. I made up for Wednesday with two workouts yesterday, 1 cardio and 1 strength. And I ate below my range yesterday, around 1300 cals, to average my week. We'll see.
I need to worko... Read more
I couldn't resist the invitation and I do think it's important to spend time with friends/coworkers... But then I didn't stop myself from overeating. I was all prepared to just eat HALF of my spinach quesadilla. But one more bite turned into 4 o... Read more
To lunch or not to lunch??
That is the question. See, usually on Wednesdays my team has a meeting at 11:00, and then the three of us go out to lunch. It's the only day we do, and my other lunch hours are typically filled up with errands or workouts.
This week I have... Read more
Snacks I don't need...
It got cold and blustery this weekend, and today I had to actually DRIVE HOME during my lunch break and get a jacket! (I was over there for another errand already, but still.) What the heck?!
Today's a strength day. I'm starting to like those. It doesn't take very long, and the next day you feel the GOOD SORE that makes you know you did something!
We lost our dog, and other things
The early part of April has been difficult; our 15-year-old dog, Napoleon, got sick during our kids' Spring Break. It was seredipitous that it happened to be a week when we were, my husband and I, both available to take him to the vet, visit him... Read more
Somewhat discouraged about weight loss
I don't understand why I'm not losing any weight. I know I have days where I'm over the calorie limit, but I feel like they're the exception, not the rule, and I feel like I'm exercising more, and harder, and STILL I don't see a loss.
In th... Read more

Weekend, and the to do list
We had a great weekend. Busy, but fun, and the gorgeous weather put all of us in such nice moods! Spring makes me feel very lucky to live here in Georgia (but ask me again in June/July and I might disagree). We did some of our spring planting in... Read more
I decided if the co-workers ask me directly what I think about their diet, or if they tell me directly "I've lost XXX pounds in one week!" THEN I will say something. But just overhearing them talk about, it, I'm not going to butt in. No one like... Read more
Good week overall!
It's been a good week, calorie-range and calorie-burning-wise. Hooray! I needed a good week. Today's meatless Friday, woo hoo! Black bean burrito, here I come!
Can't stay too long (I've already been on longer than I should, since I GAVE UP ... Read more
Moody, Tired of Tracking, Co-workers and HCG
Yesterday I was in such a foul mood. No need to wonder why -- I haven't been doing my cardio. To be fair, I did have a cold again, and was home with a sick kid, but still. There's no excuse. Back at it this week.
I'm also SO sic... Read more
I ran on Tuesday at the new gym -- loved it, no one talked to me or bothered me, and that is my kind of gym -- and then Friday at the office gym. I think I prefer the new gym, actually, BUT for time reasons I can really only work out for 20 minu... Read more
I'm happy about this being my 1 year Sparkiversary, even though I haven't lost the 10 pounds I wanted to lose. I have gained this, instead:
--A habit of drinking water, at least 48 oz a day compared to zero ounces a day on average!
--A co... Read more
