EVERY. SINGLE. POUND.
Today, I admit defeat. Everything I worked for 3 years ago is down the tubes. I have gained back EVERY. SINGLE. POUND. I feel like crap, I can't do everything my family wants me to do, and I'm pretty sure I have type two diabetes, which scares t... Read more
Back On The Band Wagon Again!
So yeah, long time no Spark. I'll admit it, I used my pregnancy as an excuse to eat whatever the hell I wanted. Blah, blah, blah eating for the baby, I ate for me. This weekend when we were away however, I really realized how unhappy I am with m... Read more
OMG friends, what a week. First, our vacation was awesome thanks for all your warm fuzzy's. While there I was able to maintain a pretty decent exercise and food regiment (lobster is lo-cal right?). I was able to maintain my weigh( a freaking mir... Read more
After last week's break down, I decided that thsi weekend would NOT be a gym weekend. I would not wear my heart rate monitor. I would not obsessively put things into the nutrition log.
Sweet Jesus has this been what I've needed. I worked s... Read more
So, I'm really annoyed. In fact super annoyed. I have been working my ass off. Seriously, at least 2, but usually 3 hours a day of cardio. I've burned an average of 4,500 calories per week. Why is the scale not moving. I've stayed within my ... Read more
I think that pretty much sums up this weekend: too much. Too much food, too many drinks, too much fun. I don't really regret my choices of the last couple days, it just makes me slightly ill-at-ease. Next week I want to focus not only on workin... Read more

The Big 5-0
As of this morning, standing naked in my hallway, I have officially lost 50 lbs. I am a little blown away. I have worked very hard for this goal, and I am now almost half way to my ultimate goal. Hopefully, by continuing to follow my program, I'... Read more
Personally, I have a really hard time with this term, or at least how sparkpeople define it.
I eat when I'm tired, but is that really emotional? It's more a chemical imbalance than anything else.
I eat mindlessly, but that's to keep... Read more

Today friends, I rest. Well kind of. I'm a tad competitive, so these local minute things are killing me. I am desperate to finish the month in the top three. It's stupid, I know, but it's my stupid goal so here we are. Currently, I'm in fourth, ... Read more
