It has been a while and it shows on the scale. I am now heavier than I have ever been in my life, even while pregnant. In the past 2 years I have gained 30 pounds and my boyfriend has gained 40. We are slowly killing ourselves! I know what it is... Read more
Super bummed...that new Kindle app I wrote about yesterday? Well aparently it crashed because I couldn't get it to load this morning!! ... Read more
Well that was ugly...but eye-opening
So, I went to the Doctor for a check-up from my November high-blood-pressure issue. While my BP is under control on the fluid pill, my weight certainly wasn't. I have been avoiding the scale for a reason, and it was right there staring at me. It... Read more
Realized that I have been on SparkPeople (off and on) for 3 years!! Can't believe it has been that long, but I keep coming back to what I know. Recently tried the Visalus thing, and didn't even make it a month...I can't live on a liquid diet no ... Read more
WOW...long time no see...
WOW, I didn't realize until just now how long it has been since I posted a blog. What brought me here today is that my better half has just been diagnosed with high blood pressure and I wanted to get some diet and exercise tips that I can pass a... Read more
So, I was supposed to blog about gym time yesterday, but obviously didn't. Not only did I not blog about it, but I didn't go to the gym...but that is OK. I am not going to beat myself up about it...I am not going to use the excuse that I have be... Read more
WOW...I had no idea until just now how close I am to reaching a healthy BMI. Only 0.80 away from that healthy range...WOO HOO!!! Certainly that is something to be excited about...now maybe my Wii Fit will stop making snarky sounds every time I s... Read more
Hello SparkPeople, it's me...again
WOW I didn't realize how long I had been away until I looked at the last blog I wrote...six weeks ago. I guess I should be grateful that I didn't put on more than a pound because I have certainly NOT been following the plan like I should have be... Read more
I swear, if I ever get more than a 3 on the points wheel, I think I might just have to pass out. Even on my bonus spin I get either 3 or "sparkgoodies". At this rate it is going to take me forever to get rid of that ugly circle and finally get t... Read more
New Month...New Goals
I was not very good with reaching my goals last week, and in all honestly I really didn't make the effort. So today is the beginning of a new month so what better time to hit the reset button and start all over!
First good thing that I have... Read more
OK, I set a few simple and very attainable goals yesterday, and only completed two. Not very good progress. So, today I will set only 3 goals and see if I can manage to tackle those.

Hoot Owls and Shooting Stars
I know, odd title for a blog, but this actually happened this morning on the way to the gym. 5am alarm and I got up and headed to the gym. While walking, I was serenaded by a hoot owl. Now, I have heard many hoot owls while camping, but it was a... Read more
Monday - great start!!
Up and at the gym at 5:30 this morning, looking rather worse for wear might I add. Then, as fate would have it, I ran into the new single guy (kids around my sons age). Great...he sees me with no makeup, a big zit on my face, and dirty hair...no... Read more
I forgot to Spark!!
Normally, I log into Spark in the morning after I go to the gym. Yesterday I overslept and didn't make it so I figured I would just log in from work...no such luck. It was one of the most stressful mornings at work I can ever remember. Before I ... Read more
I often find myself wondering if this pill or that drink will make this weight drop off any quicker. Like most American's, I want it and I want it NOW! Why does it take no effort to get fat, but a HUGE effort to get rid of the fat? If I would ha... Read more
