I've been Spark sentimental lately. Maybe it's all the reflective and goal oriented blogs. It just is that time of year. Or maybe it's because it's my mental Sparkiversary. A friend told me about Spark in Feb. 08 and I used certain tools a... Read more

The Nonrunner's Marathon Guide for Women by Dawn Dais This book is great. It's an easy, funny read. The author was not a runner, not even someone into fitness, when she decided to train for a marathon.I'm not recommending that. I'm just say... Read more

Looks like one of my 2012 goals is going to happen sooner than I thought. Yesterday I had my "formal-ish" interview with the fitness director at the Y. I've taken bodystep for 5 years. I always thought that's what I'd teach. Turns out, learning... Read more

I have had it up to HERE with crappy news today. I turn on the radio this morning and they're talking about some guy that faked being a church volunteer and stole a truck worth of donated food (20,000 pounds or something equally as crazy!) and n... Read more

My husband's family does a gift exchange between all the cousins. One big catch: the gifts must be homemade. Great in theory, but sorta annoying in practice. My kids are little. I'm the one that does the work. And when you draw the 16 year old b... Read more

I've finally broken out of my "wanting to lose weight but not actually creating a calorie deficit" mode. You know those people that talk about losing weight as they eat cookies and bagels?? That was me. I wasn't out of control or anything, but t... Read more

Last week was crabby. I didn't get in enough miles, I ate too much and I was in a funk. Luckily I came across this quote: At that moment I changed my attitude. And surpr... Read more

Confidence and poise are admirable. Arrogance is annoying. I was reminded of this during a tough yoga routine yesterday. A super tough routine. I overestimated my strength and was feeling cocky. The handstands blew some humility back into me... Read more

Lately I've been thinking a lot about the balance between nutrition and exercise. I wish it were as simple as: calories IN, calories OUT. It's not. I wish the elliptical at the gym or the fitness tracker on Spark told me an accurate number of... Read more

I've been going to Bodystep for about 5 years. It's a Les Mills program, like Bodypump. It's obviously on a step, but this is not your mother's step aerobics, I promise. It is serious HIIT. There are 4 releases a year and there has been a big ch... Read more
