The weekend went pretty well. I didn't get as much exercise in as I'd like, but I did keep my eating under control. Not bad considering there are chips and other goodies in the house plus brownies and cheesecake from 2 of my kid's birthdays. I'm... Read more
Let's try this again
Sunday, October 09, 2011      10 comments

How many times have I started over? Too many to count. Most of my do overs lately have lasted less than a week. I spent the day shopping and prepping my food for the week. I've already got it in my tracker for tomorrow. If I can stick to it for ... Read more
Who me?

I have to say I'm feeling a little guilty today. I had an email this morning that said I've earned enough votes to have the spark motivator icon added to my page. I guess when you've been around for 4 years it's bound to happen! I've been feelin... Read more
My reasons why
Sunday, August 07, 2011      8 comments

I've been on Spark for 4 years today. I'd love to say I'm a success story. I was for the first 2 years I was here. I was within 4 lbs. of goal and now I'm nearly back to my highest weight. Although I don't consider myself a success (yet) in the ... Read more
My reward system
Saturday, August 06, 2011      4 comments

I did ok this week, but ate out a little too much and exercised too little. I have areas I can improve on in the next week, but I'm not going to beat myself up if I don't lose 20 lbs. in a month. I've tried that before and it doesn't stick. One ... Read more

Daily Goals

These are my current goals, which I plan to reevaluate after 4 weeks. I'll want to add more strength training, but my focus right now is to get nutrition under control and make exercise a habit again. I have to be realistic about the amount of t... Read more
Time to get real
Saturday, July 30, 2011      9 comments

As much as I hate to admit it, I've regained nearly all the weight I lost on Spark in 2008. It's taken time, and my plan was to lose 20 lbs. this summer, not gain a few more. I hurt my back in July and I let myself eat whatever since I couldn't ... Read more

Revamp of July goals
Friday, July 15, 2011      5 comments

I've been battling a pinched nerve in my back for 3 weeks. It was somewhat better a week ago and then we painted all weekend. Bad idea. That really aggravated the situation. I went to the dr. today and she prescribed muscle relaxers, pain meds, ... Read more

I haven't done well the past 4 weeks. I was super busy in June teaching summer school, taking a math workshop, and another online class. I struggled to get into a good workout routine. July will be busy, but not quite so much so here are my mini... Read more

Day 3 of eating according to plan and nothing else. Workouts are going well too. I should find out tomorrow whether I have to pack my whole classroom and move again or if I'm staying where I'm at. If I have to move it's one more thing to add t... Read more
A good day all around
Monday, May 02, 2011      7 comments

My day started off with a 20 pt. spin on the wheel. I got a walk in at lunch and did ST after school. I needed it because I was so wound up after my meeting. Long story short is that when "stress inducing co worker" tried to throw me under th... Read more
5k and other random stuff
Saturday, April 30, 2011      8 comments

I was going to skip the 5k our school wellness committee scheduled for today because my coworker from he** was signed up to go. I decided, what the heck, I'm going. I'll just avoid her. She ended up not showing up, but I did get stuck walking wi... Read more
