Getting into Tracking food
I haven't been regularly tracking food for months. Some pounds have crept back on.
Trying get back into good habits now, and one thing that's become easy for me these days is tracking my food. It's kind of like a game. It also doesn't take ... Read more
Sad - up a lot of pounds, but I don't look bad.
Back home after visiting my parents place. Up nine pounds from GW. OMG, how can this be true?
I fit into my skinny pants. There is a teeny bit of love handle on the side that wasn't there before. Yucky, but how does that amount to 9 lbs? I ... Read more
I'm eating well and have been exercising every other day this past week. No tracking yet, but...I'm getting there.
Today I did Jillian's new Thighs and Butt workout in the morning. It's got some really good strength in there (can still feel... Read more
Back to Basics
I need to start writing again.
I have been faithfully spinning the SparkWheel for 82 days now. It's my longest consecutive streak ever. I can't wait to reach 100. And yet --- I haven't really been that consistent these past few months. i h... Read more
I am super busy doing interviews and preparing for the next school year. I am struggling to stay consistent. I am eating out for every meal and doing good but not great. I am making good choices, but sometimes, with my very long days, I make too... Read more
Cleaning out and Organizing my closet - any tips?
I am cleaning out and organizing my closet this afternoon! I'm getting rid of worn-out and ill-fitting clothing, plus setting up the closet so I can easily find things. Any suggestions for closet organization would be really useful!

A better day + a new small goal
I was in good spirits today. I got in my morning workout (Day 8 of the Thirty Day Shred) and got a good amount of job search stuff in the morning. I ran some errands in the afternoon. All in all, a decently productive day so far. Best of all, I'... Read more
Sad while exercising, from guilt and fear about not doing other things
Last week I started crying while doing the 30 Day Shred. It wasn't because it was hard (although it was hard), it was because it was morning, I had woken up somewhat late and I was beating myself up for not having done enough the day before, and... Read more
Sparking other aspects of my life: organization and time planning
I bought The Spark two weeks ago. I am still working my way through it (I'm super busy), but I love its mindset that the tools it advances aren't just about losing weight: They're about building a better, healthier life.
I have been pretty ... Read more
I am a motivated and ambitious person. I have a wonderful personal life, and that's what's most important to me. However, I really do want to succeed in my career, too.
I have had a less-than-perfect first year in law school. I've done abov... Read more
Mixed Feelings - the goal-setter's paradox.
I'm making progress, but feeling rather blue anyway about it. For my goal-setting personality, there's always another mountain, and that's what's always in the forefront of my mind. While I'm quite productive because I always set goals, I feel u... Read more
Eleven Mornings and goals for next week
I have managed to keep consistent in having some morning exercise every day for the past eleven days. My goal is to get the longest streak I can going. I have been exercising about 10-20 minutes each day. It's not much, but I know it's making a ... Read more
Seeing and feeling results
Consistency is its own reward insofar as it gives me something to feel proud of, regardless of what shows up on the measuring tape or scale. I've been working out every morning for the past 5 days and it feels great. I feel like a woman in contr... Read more
Carrot-and-stick consistency - and eggs!
So much for the 7 day Sparkpeople bootcamp! While I loved the first workout, the rest all require a stability ball, which I do not have. I don't have room for one in my tiny place, unfortunately. I did work out again this morning. Jumping jacks ... Read more
What I really want
Exercised in the morning today for thirty whole minutes! I’m pretty proud of myself. I marched in place and watched a lecture for 20 minutes, then I did Sparkpeople Bootcamp Day 1. I like how short those workouts are. Very well suited to my goal... Read more
