I haven't disappeared!
Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't been as active on the boards or challenges lately. I promise that I haven't stopped my workouts or watching how I eat. Things have been crazy so I haven't had a lot of time to get on here and post.

January 1st and Back on Track
Well, it's no surprise that the holidays were a flop. Actually, I didn't overeat, but I still managed to gain back 5 lbs. I will admit that it was because I caved and started drinking Coca-Cola again. : ( But today I followed through and got ... Read more
Week 1 - UGH!
I wish that I could say Week 1 of December was successful. Unfortunately, it's been anything but successful. Here are the goals I set for myself:

It's that time of month again... time to set some new goals. November was an awful month - between getting sick and crazy schedules, I did very little all month to stay productive. I know now that with the holidays, scheduling a workout is goi... Read more
Still Alive! - with lots of new photos
Okay... I figured since I've received several messages from a few SparkFriends as to what happened to me, I should jump on and post a blog. LOL I am still here, alive, and kicking (well, kind of). Getting sick at the beginning of the month re... Read more
Week 1 - Defeated
Well, November is not off to the start I'd hoped for. I spent all day in bed sick on Wednesday, as well as most of the day yesterday. Unfortunately, I had no choice but to get up and get moving last night and this morning. The weather has bee... Read more

October in a nutshell (with photos)
I have to say that I can't complain too much about how October went. It started off great, though it hasn't ended so well. This last weekend was hectic and nonstop. I worked cardio in whenever I could, but tracking my food and getting in stre... Read more
October 27th with photos
Well, I managed to accomplish most of what I needed to do today. I spent the majority of the day working on the cookies for Daisha's class party tomorrow. They were much more time consuming than expected because of what we were doing:

October 26th - Rest Day
I made the decision this morning to take today off. My body is screaming at me from going non-stop in more ways than one. I'm listening! Besides, the chaos kicks back in tomorrow for a couple more days. I'll be spending tomorrow editing, bak... Read more
October 25th with Photos
Well, it's been both a good day and bad day.
It's been a good day because I got a phone call today that made me want to celebrate and cheer. Because of a friend, I got a phone call from someone I don't even know and was asked to do photo... Read more
It has been nice to finally have my calorie-intake back on track today, even if it wasn't in the healthiest way. I just wanted to get on here and thank everyone for the wonderful and thoughtful comments on the photos I've posted. I'm going to ... Read more
October 23rd - Recovering and Photos
Well, the wedding was much more successful than expected. I wish I could credit the Bride but unfortunately, it was all because of my other "mom", who was in charge of everything at the reception area. The food was delicious - and yes, we actu... Read more
My Week in Review
This is going to be brief today - I have to start getting everything moved to one place so we're ready to leave for the wedding in a little while.
I have managed to be successful at achieving all of my goals this week - 8 cups of water or ... Read more
It's been a very long day! I have somehow managed to fight through an upset stomach (acid reflux - UGH!) and get in some cardio and strength, though not as much as I'd hoped for. My weigh-in this morning didn't go so well, but the numbers on t... Read more
