Kicking it up a notch!
Hi! So on the food front, things are eh. Not great, not too horrible. My weight is staying right where it's been. But my favorite is my workout! I decided to up the resistance on my stepper yesterday, and then today I upped it again! There are a... Read more
One hour on my stepper/elliptical, and I broke my previous record of 780 calories burned! 825! Oh my gosh I am super proud of myself! Also, I am a sweaty mess and my voice was hoarse from breathing so heavy! Plus I'm shaking. ... Read more
After I had my little breakdown (from losing 1 pound in 6 weeks of incredibly hard effort) and seeing my doctor, I decided I needed to tone it down a bit. I'm so close to what had previously been my maintenance range (3 pounds) that the amount o... Read more
What the doctor said
I went to the doctor on Friday to get a refill on some medication. First, I brought up my blood pressure, which has been getting higher and higher and she said that it's time to get put on medication for it. "It's a shame. You're so young," she ... Read more
I didn't want to write this blog because I didn't want it to be true. I hate what I'm going through right now but I need to be honest or I'm not going to get through this.
I've kept weighing myself every day this week, including this morni... Read more
When I first joined Spark almost 7.5 years ago, I was losing weight quickly and tracked it with weekly weigh-ins. Suddenly, I said to myself that I didn't want to wait a week to see my progress! I wanted to weigh myself every day!

And today's calorie burn was...
I am so freaking excited! I was terrified of what I was getting myself into when I made my newest playlist. But I did it and I am thrilled that I broke my last record!

Disappointing weigh in, as predicted
No gain, no loss. I've been down all day. But it did make me face a few things.
First, I know I was eating more calories than I wanted to admit over this past week. I wasn't weighing and measuring everything. No spreadsheet will work if th... Read more
Part Two: Workout success! And nerdy data.
Welcome to Part Two! Part One was a depressing blog about my food addiction (which actually should be updated because I just ate 220 calories of Dove milk chocolate bunny from my youngest daughter so now I'll have a 5130 calorie deficit for the... Read more
Part One: Dreading tomorrow's weigh in
I decided to make a 2 part blog entry today because I have two different ideas swirling around in my head and each is coming from a completely separate part of me. I don't have the energy to try to separate the two. First is FOOD.
I don't t... Read more
Oh no, Easter Candy.
I have bags and bags of Easter candy on the floor of my closet. So far it hasn't made me too crazy, but I know it's coming. I know it, because I know ME. My kids are very sweet and always want to share their candy with me, so even if I manage to... Read more
60 minutes, 635 calories!
Dang. So, yesterday I had the hardest time being motivated to do my workout and I actually quit 4.5 minutes early and burned 500 calories (according to the who-knows-how-accurate calculation of my machine). Today I decided that instead of watchi... Read more
Heck yes a new machine for me!
I took a picture of myself on my new Bowflex Max Trainer M3! Just kidding. That's not me. ... Read more
Checking in again!
Things are going really well! I'm down 8 pounds in a little over a month. That's ok. I'm working out everyday and staying in my calorie range. We traveled to Delaware for Jim's aunt's memorial service and ate out for four meals straight, but I c... Read more
