On hiatus for a bit...

Wednesday, February 26, 2014      2 comments

I haven't been tracking or weighing in recently, and don't plan to anytime soon. I'm going on hiatus from SparkPeople for a bit, because I'm pregnant! I'll still log in occasionally and may track items like water, fruits/veggies/mood etc. ... Read more

1 year anniversary

Wednesday, January 15, 2014      4 comments

To be honest, I totally would have missed this if not for the "Member since..." area on my profile. What a difference a year makes. I'm almost to my goal weight (about 6 lbs off), but am happy with where I am at and proud of myself and my body... Read more

Keep on keeping on

Sunday, January 12, 2014      1 comments

Today I am home working, on a Sunday. I am doing this because I keep getting sidetracked and pulled into other things while I am at work. Part of this is my fault, so I am just trying to live in the saying "keep on keeping on". When I have hu... Read more

Off-roading

Wednesday, December 04, 2013      2 comments

I had a hiatus from the SP site for about a month due to a crazy work and holiday schedule. This time of year is difficult to keep up with since it's filled with get togethers, parties, and road trips. I may not be logging on as often, but I'm... Read more

Workout funk

Friday, November 15, 2013      2 comments

I've been in a bit of a workout funk lately--I make sure to get some in on the weekend but I'm not great about working out after work, and try as I might, I just can't get up early to do it before. This past weekend I went to visit my sis... Read more

Can I get a woo-hoo?!

Thursday, November 07, 2013      5 comments

The title of this entry makes me laugh--there is a lady at church who starts every activity with that saying and it makes me smile each time. If you're going to do something, do it joyfully! But in all seriousness, I do deserve a woo-hoo--... Read more

Inspiration

I had written a really nice blog post detailing each of the quotes below and how my experiences related, but my computer had an interruption in service and I lost it all. Sooooo...a much more abbreviated post now. I have found these two quotes... Read more

Weekend fail

Tuesday, October 29, 2013      1 comments

So I am up 2.4 lbs from last Thursday--the product of a party on Friday, a macaroni-and-cheese heavy church dinner on Saturday night, and a Sunday afternoon of making delicious peanut butter cookies. So disappointing! BUT, I am determined ... Read more

Sweet sweet sleep

Tuesday, October 22, 2013      2 comments

Today I am DRAGGING...the result of a late night reading. I got caught up in a good book and didn't get to bed until midnight, which is about 2-2.5 hours past my normal bedtime. I'm concerned this will have a snowball effect on my afternoon--I... Read more

Secret to success

Monday, October 21, 2013      3 comments

I work out at home. And like many folks who work out at home, I have a ton of items and equipment to do my workouts at home. I have several different DVDs that in my head I've rated as easy, hard, too hard, medium, etc. I've found that I am m... Read more

Making time, not excuses

Wednesday, October 16, 2013      2 comments

Lately I've been trying to make more time for my workouts, and less time for my excuses. It's incredibly difficult, but I make myself work out at least 3 times a week to something challenging. I also walk at work on every nice day at lunch, bu... Read more

I Asked For Strength… And Life Gave Me Difficulties To Make Me Strong I Asked For Wisdom… And Life Gave Me Problems to Solve I Asked For Prosperity… And Life Gave Me Brain and Brawn to Work I Asked For Courage… And Life... Read more

The only way to finish is to start

While watching this Spark video (http://www.sparkpeople.com/re

ideo=105), I was totally inspired by the message on one of the member's shirt--"The only way to finish is to start". How true and inspiring is that?... Read more

Good days, sunshine

Monday, September 30, 2013      1 comments

We've been incredibly blessed with the weather lately--warm, sunshine-filled weekends that encourage you to get outside and move your body. My husband and I have been working on painting the trim on our house, which apparently that burns a lot ... Read more

Goal weight, here I come!

Friday, September 13, 2013      2 comments

I'm so excited that things have been coming together recently in terms of diet and exercise. This weekend will be a true test (see my blog on past bombing on the weekends), but I think I can stay motivated through. It helps that I have some fa... Read more
