The Black Hole
Just a quick entry from me. I am in complete Sparkpeople withdrawal.
I returned back to work full time this past Monday. For two days I have been in the black hole of work in the hours of 8-5 pm. We have been completely slammed. Every... Read more
Will be a challenging weekend...
I'm feeling really good this week! I truly enjoyed my last two days of maternity leave with my little girl before I return to work full time on Monday. I'm trying to keep positive and instead of being sad that I am going back to work, I am gra... Read more
Back to the grind, struggling to find time
After a great Memorial Day weekend visiting family, we are trying to learn our new routine of work, baby, and family time. I did just OK on vacation, but was able to walk 2 out of the 3 mornings we were there. DD did so great in the car for he... Read more
Forgot a Tip...
I forgot a great tip I found...
In the "track more nutrients" feature I added saturated fats. It has really been an eye opener of some of the foods I eat regularly that push my saturated fats over the recommended amount.
There is a wh... Read more
Just a quick note. Enjoying time with the in-laws. They haven't seen DD since she starting smiling and she is being a real ham! (so cute!)
Tracking food will be hard this weekend, but I will try. (MIL is an excellent cook!) I did kick... Read more

A little disappointed today because I gained a pound this week. I I ate better this week than any other (only went over once on my calories) and I exercised more than any other. I'm trying not to obsess over it. I would have liked to maintain... Read more

Almost a disaster, but not bad
Yesterday was one of the "big days" of our new life transition: My DH's last day of being officially employed. He now official stay at home dad. We're so excited! I wanted to take him out to celebrate. I don't think I had eaten enough throu... Read more
I have been enjoying my last week of "full-time" maternity leave. DD had her 2 month check-up yesterday and was given the healthy seal of approval. She was in the 95% for height. Yikes! She handled her first round of sh... Read more
A Successful Failure
Well, I didn't make it through the whole weekend in my calorie range. After a baby shower and dinner out, I went over yesterday by 207 calories. I'm OK with that. Here's why:
*I cooked healthy breakfast for DH
*Went for walk with DD i... Read more
So Far, So good...
One more day to go to get through the weekend while staying in my calorie range. I was actually stressed out yesterday worrying about it, but was happy with where I ended up (7 calories to spare!). I had a work event that last year had hotdogs... Read more
Entering the Danger Zone
It's Friday and I'm feeling really good this week. I've gotten some cardio in every day this week (and over my goal I set!) and am on target with my strength exercises. After a little bit of research, I dropped my calorie range to 1900-2100. ... Read more
Return to the Gym
I'm so excited!
Yesterday, I accomplished my mini-goal of completing my arm strength exercises. Even though it added up to about 15-20 min, I was able to pack a quite a few exercises in.
I'm REALLY excited that I returned to the gym a... Read more
I'm inspired by the lovely Sparkfriends and others that are courageously blogging their journey. I like the way some of you list your goals for the day, week, or month. Yesterday, I informally set two small goals for myself:
1. Take a walk... Read more
Calorie Overload for Mothers Day Weekend
I must tell you first what an amazing, loving, thoughtful DH I have! For my first Mother's Day, DH surprised me first thing in the morning by having an entire day planned with a day trip around the mountains. It was an extraordinary day, we ha... Read more
