Bad News For Me
I endured a 2nd degree sprain complete with tendon damage in the summer during this intense workout program I joined at a local gym. I was really hoping to be able to rejoin the program this next session. But, I met with my sports doc today and ... Read more
New School Year!
A new school year means new routines. That also means that I'm back on the food wagon after a summer of being off it. I'm looking forward to getting back to normal! ... Read more
I am so happy that SP added the ability to blog on the mobile app. Sometimes, I feel inspired on the go and want to write something. And usually, I am tracking and accessing SP on my phone. Thanks Spark People! ... Read more
I myself this morning just to see how things are going and I'm down 2 lbs. since Saturday! But with this much weight to lose, I think I can do better. I have not been drinking enough water, so I'm going to make that a goal for me. I have a bi... Read more
So far, so good!
It's now day 4 of my healthy eating in 2015 plan and it's going great! I haven't added in exercise yet - that will start next week. With going back to work after 2 weeks off and to a new full-time job, it's a chore to get up in the morning and... Read more
New Year, New Me (again)!
I feel like a broken record.... I'm pretty sure I initially joined SP in 2008 and here I am, still heavy and still resolving to lose weight. But I'm turning 40 in 3 weeks and this time, I HAVE to get this done.
Things in my life are starti... Read more
I started the C25K this morning.... but I'm doing it at my own pace. I turn 40 in January and on my bucket list for the past 10 years has been to run a 5K. I have my sights set on a race next July that goes along the river here. It's a gorgeo... Read more
... the workouts didn't quite go as planned last week. Today is a rest day and the schedule restarts tomorrow. Instead of letting it get me down, I'm getting back out there. I signed up for the Santa Shuffle 5K in December which I'm excited a... Read more
Organized and Ready!
My monthly dinner menu is made, my workout schedule is set, and my life is slowly getting organized, one drawer at a time. On the docket tomorrow? 30 minutes on the spin bike, strength training, and vegetable stir fry for dinner. :)... Read more
Summer's Over... and so is the free-for-all!
OK, so maybe it wasn't a free-for-all entirely, but I wasn't totally on my game. So tomorrow, my boys are back at school, DH is back at work, and my year as a supply teacher begins.... which means no work for the first week or two. Which also ... Read more
I've been getting up every day (even though I'm off all summer which is a feat in itself!) at 6:30 a.m. and meeting my dad (and sometimes my mom) for a walk in the mornings. This all happens while my DH and kids are sleeping soundly at home. W... Read more
Still going... albeit slowly
I'm still here and still working at it. I recruited my parents as my new walking partners which was a great move on my part. My dad is 6'5" and his pace is much faster than what I would do on my own so he keeps me moving at a great pace and wo... Read more
The new trend right now seems to be these 100 Day challenges - so now it's my turn. I've decided to do 100 Days of Self Love. This means doing things that make me feel good, look good, etc. Something as simple as doing my hair nicely every da... Read more
It has not been good...
.... and by this I mean my eating and exercising.... I was supposed to be walking a half marathon this upcoming weekend and 2 weeks ago, broke 3 toes on my left foot. They are healing quite nicely and quickly, but not quickly enough! My goal o... Read more
I was sitting in my doctor's office today (bladder infection.... again) and there was a DVD playing on the TV in the waiting room. It was called "Forks Over Knives" and was about the benefits of a plant-based diet. My doctor has recently becom... Read more
