Dinner with the family
Tuesday, October 28, 2014      2 comments

all too often I don't feel like I have time to make dinner and we end up at a fast food place. Mostly it is that I don't have a plan, and it requires so much more effort to prepare dinner when you have to dig through the fridge and freezer to fi... Read more
Day 11 - ugh swimsuit
Thursday, July 21, 2011      1 comments

I am headed out of town tomorrow to go on a family float trip. Unfortunately that means I have to wear a swimsuit. I have been putting it off all week, but tonight I was packing and I had to try on all of my old swimsuits to see if there is one ... Read more
Day 9 - I love omelets
Tuesday, July 19, 2011      2 comments

A few weeks ago I bought two cartons of eggs when they were on sale and decided to finally learn how to make an omelet. The few times I had tried before always ended with scrambled eggs. This time I did a little online research and it paid off! ... Read more
Day 7 - I want a bike
Sunday, July 17, 2011      2 comments

I'm thinking about buying a bike. My boys love their bikes, and any time I tell them we are going for a walk they ask "can we ride our bikes." They love going for "walks", and in fact this week as soon as I get home from work they start asking m... Read more
Day 6 - lazy Saturday
Saturday, July 16, 2011      2 comments

I think I am dehydrated. I woke up with a terrible headache and I'm pretty sure it is the result of my walk last night in this ridiculous heat and humidity. I drank water, but I probably sweat more than I drank. I have not been interested ... Read more
Day 5 - need new shoes
Friday, July 15, 2011      0 comments

Last year when I was working out diligently I bought a new pair of running shoes. I loved those shoes and I only used them when I was working out or running/walking, so they are still in excellent shape... except they do not fit! I'm not su... Read more

Today began with a car that would not start. This is a recently purchased 2008 vehicle, and I just replaced the battery two weeks ago. Ugh! Looks like its going to be in the shop soon. After my husband came home and gave it a jump start I... Read more
Day 3 back on the plan
Wednesday, July 13, 2011      0 comments

I feel a little like an addict that has to start back at D1. There are some hard realities to face, and a little bit of shame over how much I have gained. I am almost 30 pounds heavier than I was when I started in January 2010. The part tha... Read more
My first 5k
Monday, May 10, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday I completed my first 5k. I trained for about 9 weeks using the Couch to 5k program. This was a major accomplishment for me. I wanted to be able to run the whole thing. I ended up walking a few times, but I still finished almost t... Read more
Today and some ramblings about calories
Saturday, May 01, 2010      4 comments

Today I will get back in the cardio routine. It has been two weeks of excuses! Thankfully the numbers are still going down, but that's because I have been tracking my food and eating healthy. The nutrition part isn't hard for me anymore. ... Read more
It's been a while
Friday, April 23, 2010      1 comments

I have been active on SP every day, faithfully logging my food, tracking my exercise, finding new and helpful information, but I haven't posted a blog in a while. I have never been a blogger. I generally think nobody would be interested in what ... Read more
I can inspire my family to move
Sunday, March 21, 2010      2 comments

One of the hardest parts about this whole experience is the fact that my fiance is 6'3" and 185lbs and his BMI is healthy. This would be great if I could attribute this to a healthy lifestyle, but he is one of those few with the super high metab... Read more

It's been a while since I posted a blog, and for the past week I have been thinking about all of the things I could say. I love spreading the spark. However, I aparently only want to share it with people that I like. Shame on me! Las... Read more

I joined a challenge from March 8 - April 8. March Forward: Spring is Near! This morning I weighed in at 176, so I decided my goal is to reach 170 by April 8. I think this is acheivable, but it will definitely take some extra effor... Read more
