Getting it together

Thursday, January 02, 2014      4 comments

I've finally decided that it's time to get this last 30 lbs. outta here! I'm actually looking forward to working out this morning. I think I'll simply start with a Wii Fit + workout today. I have so many awesome workout 'games' for my Wii that I... Read more

Time for a change

On June 9, 2012, I injured my foot at work. I currently have a lawsuit going in order to get the settlement I deserve. I've basically used my sore foot (yes, even after a year it's still sore) as an excuse to not exercise. The last Dr. I saw sai... Read more

A day off!

I chose not to track my nutrition or concern myself with exercise (unless you count chasing a 3 yr old around for 7 hrs). I enjoyed taking my son and his family out for pizza at a pizza buffet, and I totally enjoyed every deviant bite! I also en... Read more

Okay, I worked out 2 days in a row and OUCH!! I forgot to walk the dog yesterday (ran out of time); so today she's gotta have one. I'll be "hitting the gym" (on my Wii) again today. I know I need to let my muscles rest in between, but I really h... Read more

Here I am again. I'm starting over. I so enjoy my workouts, and knowing that I'm doing something good for myself. I don't know why I let life get in the way of it. I really just need someone (besides my husband) to help hold me accountable so I ... Read more

Commitment

Monday, January 30, 2012      3 comments

Lately I've come to realize that I have a problem commiting to things. I'm great at starting! I go into all sorts of projects with gusto! Then I seem to get distracted by something else, or I just get bored. I've seen this in myself with many ho... Read more

Did it anyway!

Thanks to a swollen sore knee my Sparking has gotten off to a much slower start than I'd hoped! I wore my brace to work last night, and my knee seemed to feel a bit better when I woke up. Unfortunately it didn't take long for me to realize that ... Read more

It's been awhile!

My spark fizzled and the ashes have almost grown cold! I finally began to truly grieve the loss of my mother, and the depression has taken me away. I want out of the hole I feel like I'm in! I know that exercise is a wonderful aid for depression... Read more

Exercise as if...

Saturday, May 21, 2011      17 comments

Exercise as if your life depends on it, because someday it might! Whether you need strength to fight off an attacker, run from a captor, or simply fight obesity and all of the health concerns associated with it. Where will that strength come fro... Read more

What Motivates ME?

The desire to be the best me I possibly can. I give my exercise and healthful eating as an offering to the most generous universe. I'm watching my dreams come true before my eyes, and I want to be healthy and strong enough to enjoy the life I'm ... Read more

A Year From Now

I'll be lying on the beach in a bikini soaking up the sun and sea water!! I'll get up early on my vacation in order to have time to start my day with a workout...even if it's a run on the beach. I'll be living on Sanctuary! That's what we'v... Read more

Checking in

Thursday, April 14, 2011      2 comments

Yesterday was a not so good day. I chose not to track my nutrition and let myself eat whatever. I learned that my body really prefers the healthy way of eating. By the end of the day I was very tired and gassy! My belly didn't feel good, and I w... Read more

I've worked out 3 days in a row and today will make it 4! Yay, me!! I've also stayed within my calorie range for the past few days. I'm feeling positive and I know that I can do this because I've done it before! I only hope that this time I won'... Read more

After a long bout of health issues I can finally say that I'm beginning to feel like myself again! Now I just have to find my motivation so I can get back to my routines. I am still having trouble making myself work out every day. Can anyone sug... Read more

Still unsure about my health...

Sunday, March 20, 2011      5 comments

In the past month I've been to the ER twice, had several Dr. appts., and numerous tests. Hopefully by the end of next week we will be on the way to solving the problems I've been having. I've been hesitant to post here because I really didn't ha... Read more
