Felt Like I Ran a Marathon...
We brought the kids to the park yesterday afternoon, in the 90+ degree heat (with 70+% humidity). We've walked a couple of times at the park, but decided to time a mile yesterday. It took us 23 minutes and 18 seconds to walk the mile - and I hur... Read more
My last blog post was in October of 2013 - Announcing my pregnancy. Although I had hopes of being super healthy during the pregnancy, I gave up pretty quickly on SparkPeople.
My baby girl arrived on 5/23 after a month of bed rest and a 2 we... Read more
Change in Plans
Well, it turns out my weight loss goals will need to change. My husband and I found out earlier this week that we are expecting our 2nd child (our son is 4 years old).
So - I have now been nicotine and caffiene free for almost a week (and ... Read more
I'm about a month in now of "being healthier" -- I've definetly not perfected anything yet. I exercise most days (not all), and am mostly trying to watch what I eat and track (there are still some days here and there where I don't do either). I'... Read more
Entering Week 3 of my "Small" Streak...
I just completed 2 weeks of my "streak" of healthier living. This has meant way less junk food (although I've splurged a bit), and exercising 20+ minutes almost every day - and getting a decent amount of sleep - and Water!
I actually gained... Read more
A Small Streak
For several weeks now, I've been off and on SP, and trying to make some better changes to my lifestyle. I think this week was when it finally "clicked" a bit for me.
All week long I've drank between 64-96 oz. water per day.
All week lon... Read more
2 Days without Fast Food
It's been nearly 48 hours since I've had any fast food (after a weekend filled with pizza/chinese takeout/Wendy's burgers)... I've also fit in quite a few fruits/veggies within the past 48 hours. It's amazing, I already feel so much better - not... Read more
Today...So far, so good...
No exercise this morning, I overslept (may need to re-think my work-out times and/or my bedtimes!)
However, I am on track to get all of my water in and I've tracked my food today as well. SO, that's a start. Exercise wasn't the biggest goal... Read more
Well, I haven't done as well as I would have liked with tracking food/exercising this week (OK, I didn't do it at all)... BUT, I have managed to drink a minimum of 64 oz. of water EVERY DAY this week so far!! One habit down - on to the next!!

My Wake-up Call
I weighed myself for the first time in quite awhile last night. I was amazed at the amount of weight I've put on in just months - I didn't realize I was so out of control! Time to start putting myself - my health, as a priority!
I think my... Read more
Need some Inspiration/Motivation...Something!!
Hi everyone. It's been a long while since I've been on here. I don't know why, I just can't seem to get myself in gear with taking care of myself or attacking my weight issues :(
From last Aug-beginning of November I was on here all the tim... Read more
A new pattern... hopefully!
FINALLY... after two weeks of SWEARING I am going to exercise in the mornings, I finally got my butt out of bed Monday morning and hopped on the treadmill. Yay!!! Not only that, but I walked last night as well - for a total of 2.5 miles. This mo... Read more
Trying to get it back
Well, I've been off SP for awhile, and just now beginning to get on here and there again. It's been a long while since I've consistently tracked my food, and even longer since I've worked out... at all!
So, I've started trying to get thing... Read more
I quit smoking...
And I am absolutely miserable. I am wearing a patch so I know logically that I am getting some nictotine in my system, but fighting with myself to not actually smoke is difficult. I know I CAN do this, but not 100% sure I WANT to keep trying. I ... Read more

So, I find my motivation sometimes good and sometimes lacking. I just can't get it to seem to "click" into place like it was before - where I felt more committed. Not sure what changed - but I need to get it back. I've gained 5 lbs over the past... Read more
