2014 is my favorite so far.
Hello, my lovelies. I have missed 2 days out of 9 working out these past weeks, and I think 2 in 9 can technically constitute "rest days." What has been fun about all this (besides the elevated mood and energy levels) has been making a dent in... Read more
Sunday I skipped zumba. I am kind of joking, as I haven't been going to Zumba, but I planned to go, and then I got lazy and skipped it. I drank coffee, read my book, folded some laundry, bummed around, and then got on the computer. Logged int... Read more
Happy New Year!
New Years Eve I was asleep before midnight. In years past, I would have seen this as just another sign of my status as loser. This year I saw it as spending the New Year with my husband, who was also asleep. Someone set off fireworks in the n... Read more
Ok, so today was not a particularly good start - I didn't sleep at all last night, and I ate like a pig today - up until after lunch. I had a very healthy dinner - not what is in the book, but healthy nonetheless. I'm definitely going to have ... Read more
I bought the Spark Solution book in May when it came out, and I've been reading it through. I'm going to do the Spark Solution challenge starting on Monday.
I'm really bad at following through on these things. I've been subscribing to Shap... Read more
Joined two more challenges - 'cuz one is not enough.
Maybe if I have enough people behind me, I'll be motivated, right? I've been doing the 100+ team challenges for the past two years; now I'm even posting the daily challenges, which I never meant to do, but there you go. Friday I started a Face... Read more
Happy New Year, now let's move our butts.
A woman who is trying to make healthy changes in her life probably should not have to go on blood pressure medication. And that is just what happened last week when I went to the doctor. My blood pressure was dangerously high for the 3rd time ... Read more
Beginning of a streak
Hi! I posted a promise on my other blog - I will exercise at least 10 minutes a day for the next 28 days. I have not been doing anything good for me lately, and it's time to build some good habits. So here we go -
Day 1 - 15 minutes WATP... Read more
Finding my Superpower
When I was a kid I used to think maybe I could be telekinetic. I would stare at something and think at it so hard trying to make it move just the tiniest bit, and sometimes I swore it did. I loved books and movies about people with special pow... Read more
The reasons I eat.
It was kismet. I opened my SparkPeople Start page and the article featured at the top was something along the lines of "The Top 10 Reasons We Eat (other than hunger)" which is something I've been thinking about this week, a lot. I've been a lo... Read more
Rainbows and Reasons Mini Challenge
This week's mini challenge focused on eating a rainbow produce and blogging about our reasons for trying to get healthier.
The past two weeks I spent taking care of my nieces and nephews, and it was freaking exhausting. I did not once get o... Read more
For the Body I WANT Mini-Challenge Blog
So, our mini-challenge this weekend was to post a blog with a most current picture, most current measurements, goals, etc. I posted my goals last night, although I am adding "get 7-8 hours of sleep a night" to the list. So to sum up the (non-w... Read more

Time to Grow Up
I haven't watched The Biggest Loser since the season Ali Vincent won, which was, like 2008 or something. I thought she was kind of a snot, but hey, she was a girl, she won, and she did more of it from home than other winners, so that was cool. ... Read more
A well-deserved lecture
I went in for my annual yesterday and my blood pressure was sky high. I decided to make it a goal that I wouldn't have to go on blood pressure or cholesterol medication - my mother's been on them for years. If I keep up my bad habits, I'll be ... Read more
