Spring Firecracker exercise commitment
The spring 5% challenge starts on Saturday, and step one of the pre-challege is to put your exercise plan in writing.
Mine is as follows:
AT LEAST 10 minutes of exercise every single day, with a mix of cardio and strength.
This shouldn... Read more
the verdict is still out
I have officially been trying the intermittent fasting for a week now, and I'm still not quite sure what to think about it. I'm still doing some refining.
As it was pointed out to me, really all it is is skipping breakfast. Yeah, that's pre... Read more
trying something new and the Italian Renaissance
I have become pretty good friends with one of my coworkers. We only work together about 6 hours a week, but we have tons in common. We're about the same age, kids around the same age, married to the same man since we were young, and a life long ... Read more
The good, the bad, and the ugly
Doing a little "month in review" on a cold, snowy morning...
-despite everything, I am still here
-I am ending January .2 lbs lighter than I started it. I will take it and say thank you to the weight loss gods.
-I joined the ... Read more
Not necessarily a weight loss blog
My husband is in the kitchen frying bacon and eggs and potatoes. He read some where years ago that food made at home is better for you than eating out, so when I complain about the unhealthy food he is cooking he sites the fact that it is being ... Read more
figuring out the "'whys"
I seem to have fallen off the weekly blogging wagon. I really need to get back to it. It's a good way to think through all the thoughts swirling around in my brain.
Why do I feel such a need to eat sweets? And why, once I give in and eat on... Read more
Somehow I missed blogging for a couple of weeks. I thought about it a couple of times, but just didn't want to take the time to do it. Or I just didn't know what I wanted to say. Still don't really, but here it goes anyway.
I was really str... Read more
I almost forgot
I normally do my thankful blogs on Sunday but I got busy yesterday and forgot.
It has not been a good week, Spark-wise. Too much food, not enough exercise. Too many binges, not enough tracking.
I am thankful that every morning when I w... Read more
new week, new month, new Spark year
I had a big long blog typed up yesterday, and when I went to post it my computer froze up.
I took a ... Read more
Had a fairly uneventful week, which isn't a bad thing. Worked a lot, vegged a lot, slept as much as I could.
I sort of accidentally discovered something about myself this week. One day I woke up and just didn't want to track my food. I'm no... Read more
and don't get me started on the freaking' snow!
Let me tell you first what I am NOT thankful for:
We ended up getting over 12" this past Thursday. Slow moving band of lake effect just sat over us for most of a day. Drive ... Read more
Friends and family; family and friends
Had a fairly uneventful week, which isn't a bad thing. Work is settling down some with one coworker coming back from bereavement leave (her grandmother and father passed away about 12 hours apart!) and a new person hired and starting very soon. ... Read more
Some weeks 'thankful' is harder than others
This week is the perfect example of why I started doing this weekly thankful blog. It hasn't been a bad week, just kind of blah and looking for the good in it is good for me.
First I'm thankful for my husband, even though he drives me crazy... Read more
An ode to pumpkins and other things I love
I love pumpkin and could eat it year round, but this time of year it is every where you look. I had been resisting getting anything because, lets face it, most of what is out there is super high in calories/fat/sugar. But I knew eventually I wou... Read more
If you like it then you should write a blog about it
I really do try to be a positive person. I avoid writing blogs when I'm in a "down" mood. I mean really, everyone has their own trials and tribulations and who really wants to hear about mine? Especially since mine are so minor. (I am self aware... Read more
