Cross fit update
Long time no blog! A few things have changed since my last check in, and I am going to have to tweak my goals. Since the last time I checked in, I have joined the YMCA's 60 day challenge. It has nutrition meetings, and I get all of their pay cla... Read more
Back at Spark, plan in place, and now to make it happen!
The quick and easy update. When I was last lurking around the edges of Spark, I was in a stressed way. My work life was rough- getting moved around, little stability, and just stressed. And, with stress, I ate awful, didn't exercise, and was jus... Read more
Still struggling to find my groove, but at least trying again
February and March have been tricky months. I have tons of excuses...I just haven't been doing what I need to do. I haven't been tracking well, and I haven't been eating healthy...and I have a million reasons why. I am exhausted, not sleeping we... Read more
emotionally not in the right place-confessional blog, huge backslide...
I have not abandoned SparkPeople, but this has been a difficult month. I keep trying to talk a big game about getting healthy but I just haven't felt it. The truth is, I am a year older, frustrated, and unsure where I am going.
I moved to ... Read more
Week 2- mostly on track last week, and ready to work hard this week
Starting off with reviewing last week:
1) Wear my fit bit, and keep track of my calories on it as well as on my fitness pal. Read more
Re-committing to change in 2014- need to somehow get back on track
The winter season undid me. I know I am not the only one this happens to, but I thought I had it all together until mid December when life really got the better of me, and all the changes I had worked so hard to do regressed. I have regained 9 ... Read more
I keep falling off Spark, but December Goals looking towards January
I feel like I am never able to stay up to date on Spark. I want to make it more of a point to do it during the day for inspiration, but I keep forgetting.
Life is crazy, that much is still true. That said, I have decided its easier to be se... Read more
Still struggling...but maintaining. Need to make forward progress one way or another
I can't seem to get my mojo going. I have seriously tried getting to the gym, and I have managed to get there 3 times a week. Each program I have looked at basically wants me there at least 5-6 days a week, and that is just not happening right n... Read more
Second go around back on Spark- did not do as well as I thought. Ready for round #2
Okay, no way to look at it except I did not do particularly well. I got to the gym twice...ate food fairly well but planned poorly on others...and It cannot be healthy for me to have 3 monsters, coffee, and coke zero before 2 PM to keep my energ... Read more
Gone from spark for a month, October was crazy but trying to get back track
It has been a really off month for me. I had been doing so good right up until October started. I was initially sick, then off to Orlando....and then nothing.
Now, I had an awesome time in Disney-if you ever have the chance to do the Not S... Read more
Ending the month on a down slide, but planning for a great October
It has been a rough end of the month. I got sick last 2 weeks ago, and was sick all last week...still sick now. It has been rough since I haven't been sick in awhile. it wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't coughing up a storm and exhausted. It just h... Read more
Suppose to start week 10, derailed by a virus, busy week
Short blog, but trying to keep track of my journey.
I am doing live fit for my fitness program, and last week graduated to phase 3. It was I hard-super sets where I do 2 weight lifting sets, an "active rest set" where I do a weight exercis... Read more
Possible dog seizure, Work changes, and continuing Live Fit to stay...balanced
Life has been a little bit more complicated recently.
Winter may have had a seizure. She had an episode where she staggered and collapsed. My husband went over to her, touched her, and she woke up. She was acting disoriented though. He call... Read more
Serious progress made (under 190!)-going strong for week 7, positive changes, and ready to push on
I am pretty surprised and pleased to be writing this blog.
I am again under 190-it has been a really long haul to get here. I am at 187 this morning, and that is a decent change. I have been doing my Live Fit, tracking my calories, and tryi... Read more
Calling a re-do:restarting week 5, re-viewing eating- have to get back on track
So, this last week sort of fell apart for me.
My sister in law came into town with her family this week, and my workout plans fell to the wayside as I had to go over and hang out with her, the baby, and the in-laws. I really needed to work... Read more
