off to a good start
Yesterday I posted my goals for starting fresh, and yesterday I was 100% on-point with food. Very proud. I even got 3 out of 4 liters of water in, when I'd be lucky to get 2 lately.
I made casein protein pudding last night as my bedtime sna... Read more
To say I have lost my mojo w/ food and exercise might be a bit of a stretch, but it sure feels that way. Stress, mother nature, and an injury have all gotten in the way of me eating and moving the way I need to. So here I am, posting this in hop... Read more
Ok, let's try this again...
Life has been insane. Work is nuts (20+ OT hours a week), trying to get things done on Mom's estate, two family trips with DBF, appendectomy and the resulting need for recovery... The scale is up, and so is my frustration level.
Eating 1600... Read more
So I have shifted my focus from simple weight loss to working on becoming more lean and toned. I need to fuel my running, spinning and lifting regimen so that I perform well, while still creating enough of a deficit to continue to trim fat. The ... Read more
Leave of Absence from work
Finally realized trying to work 40 hours AND handle the closing of Mom's estate is too much. So I put in for 3 weeks of personal leave, so that I can really get going on clearing out her condo, while also having some time to rest. I plan on star... Read more
one foot in front of the other
Just a quick post to say that I am keepin' on keepin' on. Working on getting the basics down again, after losing Mom. I can't believe it was 3 weeks ago yesterday. It feels like just yesterday, and it feels like 3 years ago, and ... Read more
My mom passed away on the 8th, and I am having a tough time coping with the loss. She was an amazing woman and one of my best friends. Her battle with cancer took so much from her, but she never gave up. I mourn for her and for the years we coul... Read more
Ragnar and other thoughts
The relay was intense! At first I said "I am NEVER doing anything like this again!". lol. The time crammed into the van with 5 other runners and all of our huge bags of stuff and 3 huge coolers of food was the hardest part when you factor in the... Read more
Whew, it's been a crazy week or so. Between killer allergies that I thought were bronchitis, teaching extra spin classes, getting ready for the Ragnar Relay this Friday-Saturday... I feel like my head is spinning like the wheel on ... Read more

Workout Plan 4/25-5/1
Long time, no post!
I have def struggled with food and working out lately, what with Mom's cancer fight and the wedding we were in last weekend. I think I definitely needed a bit of a break from my rigorous training schedule, but I unfortu... Read more
Thoughts on goal weight
So, on Momentum at WW, my lowest weight was 121.4. I got there last summer, then kind of 'relaxed' a little and gained maybe 3 lbs back over the Fall. Then, P+ rolled out and I gained another 5. Since January, when I came back to the Spark, I ha... Read more

I have come to realize that SparkPeople is a much better fit for me now.
For a while, I needed WW to really hold my hand and help me get on track. I needed the meetings, the official weigh-ins, the Points system. And it wo... Read more
