I just read an amazing blog here:

A recap of the last almost week.

Tuesday, February 09, 2016      9 comments

I stayed at work a few minutes late Thursday. On my way to pick up my kid from daycare, a guy in the far right lane of the direction I was headed decided he wanted to head north instead of south. He then proceeded to do an illegal uturn r... Read more

That little voice.

Thursday, February 04, 2016      14 comments

He is jerk, that voice. He keeps telling me I'm not making any progress. I started to believe him today. His whispers. His snide remarks. Then something happened. I caught a side glimpse of myself in the mirror. ... Read more

Dealing with frustration

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      9 comments

Well, I hit frustrations. I don't know why I get so frustrated. I keep thinking that I'm not making enough progress. (This isn't true) I've only been back at this for a month. I've made HUGE progress in this month. I'm not sure o... Read more

Workout review - life and hammering

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      8 comments

Hammer and Chisel is a great program. Do you like lifting weights? This is a weight-centric routine. There are only maybe 2 workouts in the 14 workouts that don't use weights. Do you need a modifier? This probably isn't best for y... Read more

Making the right choices for me

Monday, February 01, 2016      10 comments

As I keep going in the journey, I find it hilarious how so many people want to tell me what I SHOULD be doing with my health. (I'm actually doing pretty well) but I am sure they are excited about some things and etc. SO, my update goes lik... Read more

A friend of mine from college shared this with me. She is a dietician, and has a lot of initials after her name to show how much she knows about nu... Read more

Chiseling myself out

Monday, January 25, 2016      9 comments

So, Hammer and Chisel is probably a favorite of all the workout programs I've done. It is hard. It is also worth it. I'm starting the 4th wee... Read more

What is a rest day?

Thursday, January 21, 2016      6 comments

I got into a discussion with a friend today about rest days. He said we had to have rest days. I don't disagree. However, I think rest days are defined differently by different people. The best that I have read is that we don't exa... Read more

Workout review time

Wednesday, January 20, 2016      4 comments

Well. I used to post about workouts I would do, because some people might be interested, and because it helps me track my own progress. Right now, I'm 2.5 weeks into a new program. It is called Hammer and Chisel and it is by beachbody. ... Read more

Eating right... what is that?

Tuesday, January 19, 2016      6 comments

As I'm here, eating right, learning, changing, I realize that so many things give you so much conflicting advice. Low Carb Low Fat No Meat All Meat Vegan Pescatarian Vegetarian That is just a FEW. How do you choose? He... Read more

Doing it

Friday, January 15, 2016      10 comments

So, I am really starting to feel it, like I'm here the right way. I've felt it before. I know a lot of us have. A fellow sparker said in a blog she was afraid of being destined to yo yo. I know how she feels, because that is what I have ... Read more

My Diet is Better Than Yours

Wednesday, January 13, 2016      6 comments

No, it isn't. Don't be offended!!! My Diet is Better Than Yours is a new tv show! It is on ABC, and Shaun T, (My favorite video trainer/the bane of my existence) is the host. It is an interesting premise. Five people pick 5 traine... Read more

David Bowie died. He was so talented, I was such a fan. I don't normally get that upset about celeb deaths. Maybe it was because we shared a birthday, (not the year) but, it was special because I was such a fan. Regardless, I'm making chan... Read more

Hi sparkers. I'm embarrassed. I'm mortified. I'm here. I gave up. I binged. AND more. I didn't gain all my weight back, but I think I really tried. So, I am a little mad at me, and ashamed I stopped using the tools I had ... Read more
