So I'm headed out the door to the Rheumatologist... on one hand, excited to go and maybe figure out what's behind the flare ups of exhaustion, joint pain and swelling and fever. On the other, worried it's just going to end up being another case... Read more
Disgusted with myself
The one thing that forces me to acknowledge just how fat I've let myself get is shaving my legs. Every lump and bump, every bit I can't reach without major contortions or see reminds me that once upon a time, I did this 4-5x/week and it was a 1... Read more
Well that sucked...
So, I made it to the gym, sort of as planned. It was an awkward day, I couldn't go before work because I had an early visit scheduled. I couldn't go right after work because the day ran long and I needed to do some grocery shopping before I we... Read more
Time to get sparking
Ok... so I kind of fell apart around Thanksgiving, and since then, have had pockets of good eating and drinking habits, and no freaking exercise at all. I've gained 4 pounds back (likely some of which is water weight from excess sodium). So to... Read more
Granola - The red headed step child of the diet world
Granola is the redheaded step child of the dieting world... calorie dense, a little heavy on the "fats" side of the equation, you'll hear a lot that it's not really health food. All that being said... I got more breakfast satisfaction out of my... Read more
I can't help but laugh
I don't quite get it, but for some reason, I just cannot put enough carbs in my mouth according to the spark ratios. Out of the last 7 days, I've been under target on carbs 5 times. Over on fats, surprise, surprise (ok, no, not really), and fo... Read more
So, yesterday? Fail. Big one. I was exhausted by the time I came home, and failed at the decision making.
Garbage plate for dinner (luckily I really only managed to eat about half of it)
Too much diet coke

Ok, so after yesterday's shoe buying extravaganza, I did get my act together and hit the gym. Went to the Y, was disillusioned to discover that they've deactivated my FitLinx account (no surprise, really), but did my cardio anyway.
The ell... Read more
Tonight, while attempting to remove my final semi-legitimate excuse to not go the gym, I realized I have a new goal. I want to be able to shave my legs, ankles to bits, in one sitting, and without feeling hot, sweaty, frustrated and disgusted w... Read more
Do one concrete thing and the day is a success
I am really struggling to get started today, with everything. Luckily my job is flexible, so the fact I haven't walked out the door isn't going to hurt anyone but me. For weight loss, exercise, eating well... still haven't found the start tod... Read more
The first week
So, I'm a week into using spark, and I've not met any of my fast break goals, but I've been paying attention and keeping track of what goes into my mouth and what I'm doing, which is more than I can say for last week. I did reset my fast break ... Read more
