An important realization for me...
Today, I gave myself permission to take the day off from working out. This is major for me. The perfectionist part of me is screaming for me to get my butt moving and work out. If I miss today, I won't do it tomorrow. However, after years of not... Read more
So, I posted just about everywhere but here...
But, I promised myself I'd blog every day, so here I am. I had a fire inside today and felt the need to spread the Spark. I also wanted to thank all of my friends who have helped motivate, support and inspire me. I hope I caught everyone; but, i... Read more
Does Jaws count as an inspirational movie?
Seriously... does it? It inspired me to stay out of the water! They beat the shark in the end! They even swam on the barrels back to shore. That's a good workout right?
I just recently moved from Stage 2 to Stage 3 in the SparkDiet Program.... Read more
Rainy, yucky day didn't ruin my plans...
Thunderstorms today! Bummer! I was hoping to get out for a walk again today but thought better of it once we saw lightning. So, I bailed on the walk during lunch and figured I'd get my 30 minutes in on the treadmill. Well, instead, I started out... Read more
Bouncing back nicely...

Despite the rain, we had fun today...
Such rainy, windy, crappy, cold weather today! YUCK! Of course, we had to go out in it. Errands to run that couldn't wait. So, as soon as that was done, we pretty much hunkered down inside the house. What a perfect time to try out our new Wii Fi... Read more
Not quite what I expected...
May day was supposed to be fairly simple. I had brought along my workout gear since it was supposed to be really nice and I had done so well yesterday. But... instead, I nearly had a panic attack today... I got an email stating it was time for s... Read more
Walkin' on clouds...
I'm walkin' on clouds today... I knew I wouldn't be able to work out after work today, so I grabbed my shoes, socks and workout gear and threw it in a bag, just in case. Well, just in case worked out for me. I was able to get out at lunch and wa... Read more
After reading JohnTJ1's blog about compulsive people pleasing and a few other blogs out there, I took a step back and decided to take inventory myself. It's pretty amazing what you see when you stop and look back.
I don't think the term "pe... Read more
So far, so good!
So, today was day 2 of my increased mileage. I think it went pretty well. No hip or knee pain this time. I kept my pace steady and just increased my time to get the extra distance. My knees ache a little, but I'm pretty sure that's actually weat... Read more
Happy dance time!
I just have to share! I'm so excited! I was happy to have broken through the 260s into the 250s this morning. Then I realized that since joining SP back on Feb 22nd, 2011 I have now lost 11.4 pounds! Woo Hoo!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!... Read more

My daffodils are up...
Yeah! The first of my daffodils are open now. They're late bloomers, so they're always later than most, but I've been egging them on... I can be a little impatient. ... Read more
