I've been wanting to participate in a 5K since I joined SparkPeople in 2011. I've joined the 5K Rookie Running Program several times and always ended up quitting, for one reason or another. Well, this time, I'm committing to it! I downloade... Read more

Wow these past few months have not been Sparklicious, to say the least. I have not gained back any of the weight I lost, so that's a positive thing. But instead of losing 10-15 pounds like I could have, I kept eating and eating and not exercisin... Read more
Survived the Mother-In-Law (sort of...). Long post.

I posted in a previous blog about my in-laws visiting and my concerns about emotional eating to survive the weekend. Good news! I lost 2 pounds. Bad news: I snapped and we got in a huge confrontation that resulted in them leaving. To explai... Read more

If you had told me 2 months ago that I would be drinking almond milk and eating ground turkey, I would have fallen over laughing. I am a whole milk girl. Skim milk is water with a teaspoon of milk in it, and the thought of soy milk makes my lip ... Read more

I struggle with feeling selfish. I typically work 4 days a week, and my husband works 5. I feel that if I'm home and he's not, then I should do all of the housework and he shouldn't have to come home to laundry unfolded and dishes not washed. I ... Read more

My inlaws are coming to visit next weekend. They'll be here for 4 days before going on their yearly golf trip. Yay!...not. My mother-in-law is horrid. She's just...mean. She makes snippy, passive aggressive, judgmental comments. She's real... Read more

Hi Sparkers! I'm Amanda. I've been on Sparkpeople for about a month. I haven't blogged before because I usually access the site from my phone, and it's too much of a pain to try and blog on my phone. I also don't use the trackers on here for the... Read more
