Being Nice to Myself
I started falling into an old habit of criticizing myself because of my weight gain. I've caught myself more than once being mean to myself. Mostly when it's time to get ready to go somewhere and nothing fits right anymore. That's usually whe... Read more
Dusting off my Log In
I reset my goals today. I updated my page, I cleaned up my friends list, and browsed the teams and the community pages. I've been gone from Spark People about 2 years or so. The last time my status changed was 875 days ago or something crazy li... Read more
Insanity and Fitbit
I took my 2nd Insanity class today at the gym I belong to - and I love it! The first time I was a little unsure of some of the transitions and exercises. Today, I pushed a little more and I feel it already. Love the energy in the class. For no... Read more
To Fitbit or not to Fitbit?
I've been thinking about getting a Fitbit but not sure if it's really worth it once the "novelty" has worn off -- and I'm not sure which one would be best. I like the features that are described on the website for the new one being released in ... Read more
Loosely on Track
About a 1 1/2 years ago I had this great momentum, push, energy, and drive. I ate really well, exercised daily, and tracked it all. Lost all kinds of weight, was feeling really good and enjoying it all. Not sure where it all slowed down or cha... Read more
Hyperthinking about my food
Lately I have noticed that I am hyper-thinking about my food. Once I'm up and functioning in the morning (2 cups of coffee, some email, Sparkpeople and Facebook in that order), it's time for breakfast. I have to wait an hour after I take my mor... Read more
Love the Spark Friends in my Head
I had a pretty un-sparky week this week. I didn't track everything and managed to give myself excuses to stay out of the gym or do anything at home. I know I ate more than I should have, and made a couple of (a few?) poor choices. ( On the upsi... Read more
The week, Zumba & Cara Cara oranges
This week wasn't the best for me. I had great intentions on my husbands birthday but threw caution to the wind and ate waaay to much. But it was good and it was just that day. I didn't get to the gym or to walk earlier this week - I was derailed... Read more
Test over Dinner
I'm in the "middle" of my 3rd week of being ReSparked. I've had a good start, been on track and have been making some progress. I'm down about 3lbs and in general just feeling better. Of course, when your pants are not too tight all day long, ... Read more
Start of another week
Today marks the start of the 3rd week for me that I've been recommitted to being healthier. So far, I've had a good two weeks behind me and I'm looking forward to building on that momentum.
The weekend was a good one, even though I didn'... Read more
"If you Build it..."
Most of us are familiar with the line from the movie Field of Dreams: "If you build it, they will come."
I had set my mind to going to Zumba on Friday morning last week: didn't make it. Then said that I was going on Tuesday: didn't make ... Read more
Servings & Connections
Last week was the first full week of Sparking that I've done in a very long time. As a result, I did manage to lose 2lbs. ... Read more
A good week
This week was a good one! Good start, good motivation, and my husband started up again on SP too. He only tracks his food & exercise, but it helps because it keeps me doing the same. Feeling good about reconnecting with some of my old Spark ... Read more
I used to say it's all about the prize. Meaning, I loved my spark points and was disappointed when my morning login spins gave me only 3 points. I want more! I would track everything each day, read blogs, comment, read articles, try recipes...... Read more
2012 was not the best year for me as far as my weight, nutrition, exercise... all of the healthy stuff that helped me make a new me. I regained 20 pounds - had to buy new pants (sigh) and pants and shirts are very snug again.
I let my goo... Read more
