On SC I was challenged to make a blog about my most common workout skipping excuses. My most common excuse is "oh, I have all day, I can do it this afternoon." Which then turns into "I can't work out I have to..., I'll do it tonight!" which then... Read more
So, last night I ran/jogged 2 miles! I walk most of my exercise miles, not run, but occasionally to switch things up I'll run a mile. I've never run so far before. My speed was slow, I mean really, I can walk faster than I can run, but still, I ... Read more

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: 3 MILES
I feel like work out videos...especially the Leslie Sansone ones that I love....are kinda nerdy. I really hope no one is offended by that statement, because I don't mean in a negative way. Being nerdy is way more fun than being up-tight or "cool... Read more
Too Fast Too Soon Or Time to Re-Boot
So I got really...excited. And tried to make more changes than I should at once. I failed epically. I haven't really done much on SP yesterday or today, I didn't even track or take advantage of my Spark Coach trial. I'm kind of disappointed in m... Read more
We All Need Rewards

If I could walk a "Thousand Miles"...I'd still have to take a swim
My fiance is in the Air Force and is station over seas. If I could see him I would, like in Vanessa Carlton's song walk a thousand miles, but I'd have to swim the Atlantic too...So obviously not very realistic. However, by the time I've walked a... Read more
Nostalgia and Surprises
This my second time "around the block" if you will. And its very different this time. Before I joined SP thanks to a Lady on my Biggest Looser team board back in 2009. Our team there and on here was called Divas. I'd hoped to rejoin my group, bu... Read more
