The first three months of 2013 have been full of change, challenges and growth. I am now at a point where I am ready for amazing things to start happening and I am really excited.
I have a lot of wonderful things happening in my life right ... Read more
I've been working on some things to get me motivated to do what needs to be done throughout the day (not necessarily fitness related), and I think I have found something that's working right now...
I make a to-do list for the day, usually w... Read more
I'm smiling again, I'm getting things done, and I'm getting movement throughout the day. I'm still eating way too many calories right now, but that is already starting to shift as well. But the main thing is, I'm back to myself again, finally! I... Read more
Rolling with the Punches
I woke up this morning with a really bad migraine. I've suffered from migraines for years and have learned to work through them most of the time. Every so often, though, one is really bad and I am not able to just work through it. Today has been... Read more
Back into the Swing
I have been using the last couple of days to get back into the swing of things... short walks, more water, joining new teams, etc. I really want to get back to my longer walks but the weather and lack of sleep are making it harder. At least with... Read more
Re-Booting My Spark
I have lost my motivation somewhere along the way. After all of the stress, anxiety, fear, packing, moving, relief, depression, etc of the last 5 1/2 months, I cannot seem to get myself back into my healthy habits that I had created before every... Read more
Getting it Together
As you know from reading my blogs and status updates, the last 2 months have pretty much been taken up by packing, moving and unpacking for me. And realizing I own a lot of stuff! In the course of unpacking, I managed to strain my back and have ... Read more
I am finally almost done with the unpacking! There are only 3 boxes left for me to unpack! And of those 3, one of them is decor and another is supplements, so they should be pretty simple. The only one that may take a while is the rest of my off... Read more
Ready for the Next Step
I am so ready to be done unpacking now! I have made a lot of progress, but when I look around at all of the boxes that are left to be unpacked I sometimes get frustrated. I know that moving takes a lot of time and energy (and money), I'm just re... Read more
Unpacking, Losing and a New Beginning
I have been so busy the last month that I haven't had much time to devote to Spark or to regular workout sessions, but I have been getting a lot of activity!
I got the keys to my apartment about a week and a half ago, but didn't actually mo... Read more
For the last two weeks, my life has been focused on my move... and I still have a few of weeks to go! At this point I have been really focusing on getting everything packed and out to the garage. I realize that I still need to be able to functio... Read more
Moving On... Moving Forward
I found out yesterday that I got the apartment I wanted, so I will be moving at the end of this month. I'll be picking up my keys on the 26th, but won't actually be moving my furniture and stuff until the 1st. The time difference is mostly logis... Read more
I'm Still Here
I haven't posted a blog in a while, or posted on message boards, or even tracked my food or fitness, but I haven't left Spark, I am still here.
I have had a lot of stuff going on over the last 3 months, mostly related to my roommate's new b... Read more
The Blog I've Been Waiting to Write~ 50 lbs GONE!!
This is the blog I’ve been waiting to write, and at times I really wasn’t sure that I would ever be able to write it! But now it is official, so I can shout it from the roof-tops and share it with all of you… I have officially lost 50 lbs and am... Read more
Set Backs and Moving Forward
So I’m pretty frustrated. I mentioned that I exacerbated my injury (torn plantaris muscle) by pushing too hard, too fast on Friday. So now it looks like there will be no walking for me for 2 weeks, and no running for at least 6 weeks. This means... Read more
