I talked to my dad yesterday. Or, I texted him. Because I love him but we both hate talking on the phone. My dad is a really fun person. He has lots of energy, (especially for having 5 kids) but he wasn't a great dad. I think there ar... Read more

Doing it...

Well, my readjustment is working. 21 DF Upper with Insanity Fast and Furious and PiYo Upper is in the books. I have realized something. I only REALLY enjoy ST when my heart is pounding and it feels like cardio. SO, if my ST workout... Read more

Finally makes sense.

SO. I think it has been obvious if you are my friend here, it has been a hard month for me. My blogging has been sporadic, as has my logging and such. (logging and blogging, I just realized that it rhymed). Last week was AWFUL. M... Read more

Going for it.

I'm looking forward to so many things... so many wonderful things. Flip flops. Sandals. Dresses. Warmth. Beach. Sunshine. My 3 year old told me she was tired of winter. She wants to go play outside. It is just SO cold! I ad... Read more

I know that the end of winter is finally here, but I think it is also getting to me. This funk is AWFUL. I need SUNSHINE and warmer weather and flip flops or evening walks and NOT this cold miserable time. I let myself wallow a little. All w... Read more

Spark has so many AMAZING articles. I read my alloted points in them EVERY day (and sometimes I read more!) I've read quite a few about loving your body no matter the size. I remember years ago thinking that the people who wrote that had ... Read more

Buhuhuh, uhuhuh... 69!

Man, I would have loved to made it to 70, but 69, I will take it! That is 69 pounds I have forever banished. Last week at this time I was telling you how I had to buckle back down because my nutrition hadn't been great and I didn't lose ... Read more

Shopping... in my closet

Well, I did it. Today, I put on a pair of pants that were too large. I honestly COULD wear them, but they just didn't look flattering any more. So, they are going the way of the large pants, Salvation Army. So, I went to my closet and pu... Read more

Looking forward to it.

Yesterday, I wasn't really "around" on Spark. I logged everything and took care of business, but I was home with a sick kiddo, so it was all from home on the phone, so I didn't blog. I did notice that the snacker was back. Because I wasn'... Read more

Support... it is AMAZING!

As I've been clear about lately, I had some struggles. I'm blessed it didn't turn into a derailment of my progress and a gain, but still, struggles. I'm incredibly blessed that not only did I realize what was going on, but with all the fri... Read more

Your rules can't apply to ME!

Ugh... It happened. I didn't lose. I'm working hard. I'm lifting. I'm thinking back to EVERY message board, EVERY blog I've commented on where someone is struggling. I think back to the advice I've given. New workouts, harder... Read more

Just do it.

Today, I read this: A boat is safest in the harbor, but that isn't what boats are made for. I was thrilled with this. You see, it is EASIEST to sit on the couch. Or even safest. What do I mean by that? It is emotionally safe.... Read more

Hug them. ALL of them

What a crazy day. I think I am going to crash into something (like the couch) when I get home. Okay, I hope not, I really think I'm going to try to have a dance party with my kid. I need it. I know I'm going to squeeze her so that she ... Read more

This time of year with this weather, every year by February I'm just blah. I really would like some spring and sunshine... I NEED IT! So, I have a few challenges and things going on, and I'm really looking forward to hitting some goals now... Read more

As some of you know, this foot injury has been killing me. It has frustrated and just made me nutty. Saturday morning, my foot hurt, and I kept putting off my workout. I wasn't doing it deliberately at first, but then eventually, it was... Read more
