Gone Long Enough??
I sure have been. I used to be such a faithful Sparkie, now I don't even log in, or track my exercise or food, or even drink my water.
I can't even say that starting now I will do it again, but I have been lacking the motivation to make th... Read more

My toddler won't let me nap!
I needed a nap so badly today. I get out of school at 10:30 pm and end up falling asleep sometime after 11 pm. I am up early for work and today was an especially busy day for me. I wanted to nap and so I tell my 2.5 year old to lay with me and ... Read more
Catching up...I hope to be back for good!
I haven't been very active on SP for a very long time. The reasons, for the most part, have been school, the thought I could do it on my own without SP, and recently, my new part time job. So I've been pretty busy. Sometimes I don't even have th... Read more
Living A Sheltered Life
After 10 months in school, I have come to the realization that I have lived a sheltered life. Actually, I guess I gradually realized how sheltered and naive I am because everyone around me knows so much...too much I think. And yesterday, there w... Read more
Being Sick Stinks!!!
I used to be the kind of person who rarely got sick...even when everyone around me was sick. Now, with having a 2-year old, it's not so easy to stay as healthy as I once was. I am a spoiled mother. My kid sleeps through the night (and has since ... Read more
I do them, 10-15 at one time. My goal is 20. Yesterday at the gym a sweet older man came up to me and was impressed that I was doing "regular" push-ups. I totally took it as compliment but when I make the comment to others, the first thing out o... Read more
Father's Day...Healing After Growing Up Without One
So I grew up father-less, resentful, and confused. My "father" was a wife-beater who physically hurt my mother, my siblings, and myself. We were "taken" away from him by my mother's family (I don't know if she was not strong enough to leave him ... Read more
It's Been A While...

So here is my "What I haven't done in a month" list:
* Didn't go to the gym
* Didn't eat clean
* Didn't drink water
* Didn't make right food choices

My Vacation to the Mexican Riviera (with pics)
At the end of February the whole family (minus the kiddos) went on a Mexican Riviera cruise. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!! The weather could have been better, but we didn't let that stop us. This was the reason I originally began my transformation and ... Read more
I've been gone for all too long it seems. I've slacked off, I've overeaten and my weight loss has come to a halt. I had no energy nor motivation to get me out and active. But yesterday (Friday) I tackled the gym first thing in the morning. I did... Read more
Busy Busy Busy, Makes Me Feel Guilty
I've been so busy this month that I feel guilty for not interacting with my Spark buddies as much as you've all interacted with me. I also feel guilty because I have not been doing good when it comes making the right food choices and drinking my... Read more
Real Life Motivator? Me? Really?
What a busy week this has been for me. With starting school and all, I've hardly had time to connect with my Spark friends or log on to SparkPeople long enough to get past spinning the wheel.
I really wanted to share how excited and motiv... Read more

Dear Family : Make Up Your Minds Already!!!
