A coworker & I have been talking about wanting to try Zumba for a few months now. We want to find something close to the office so we can go after work. We live in completely opposite & far directions, and since neither of us wanted to go alon... Read more

I have 5 cats. I did not start out to be the crazy cat lady, it just sort of happened gradually without my noticing, kind of like my extra weight. But I take care of them so I don't qualify yet for an episode of Animal Hoarders, or whatever th... Read more
I feel sparkly! (and apparently can't spell)

Per the scale this morning I am now down by 15 pounds! WooHoo! And officially in the 180s. 5 pounds left to go down a BMI level to merely "overweight". Next week I take measurements & I've been sleeping pretty good. I feel like a Sparkl... Read more

My scale has them. And they are playing with me. For the last week my scale has not budged an ounce...or even a fraction of an ounce. The same number every single day. And I've been good, eating right and exercising. Intellectualy I kno... Read more

Today is my "day off". I have no exercise scheduled, I'm going to be looser with what I choose to eat (but still stay within my plan!). We're having Tur-duc-hen with homemade jambalaya for dinner just because (it's expensive so is genera... Read more

Dinner tonight! This is fast becoming my childrens' winter comfort food. They are after me to make it weekly. So I entered the recipe here & the damage isn't nearly as bad as I thought. I might even eat one! http://recipes.sparkpeople.c... Read more
Week 3 recap / ramble
Saturday, January 22, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday was the end of Week 3 for me. I've lost 14 lbs. so far which is amazing. My BMI is hovering just on the edge of "obese", ready to go to merely overweight in 1 more pound. Which stubbornly refuses to go away this week. But at least ... Read more

We all know drinking enough water is important. Being very goal oriented & somewhat competitive I just can't break my streak. But time conspired against me yesterday and I was faced with being 2 glasses short at bedtime. Not thinking it throu... Read more

I picked up my dry cleaning this afternoon and tried on my size 16 slacks. They no longer fit! Oh, I could still wear them in a pinch, they aren't falling down to my knees but they are visibly big. Time to pull out the 14s and retire the ... Read more
Week 2 Recap - much better than expected!
Sunday, January 16, 2011      0 comments

At the end of Week 1 I was worried about what would happen in Week 2. Historically the 2nd week of every weight loss effort was when I would fail. And this time my week 2 started with being surrounded by pizza for lunch - and pizza is one of m... Read more

I hate push-ups!
Tuesday, January 11, 2011      1 comments

I hate them with a passion, I always have, I always will. I hate them more than running, more than hot dogs, more than my ex-husband. But I'm up to 16 now, more than I could do 2 months ago. I still hate them though. ... Read more

My first day back to the office after 3 weeks of vacation, and only 10 days into SP, and one of my coworkers brings in a big bag of miniature candybars to share. If I didn't know better I'd think she was out to get me LOL. But I managed to res... Read more

I've been fortunate enough to have the last 3 weeks off work, in a mix of holiday and vacation days. Now, sorrowfully, my time has ended and it's back to the office in the morning. ... Read more
