I weighed in today
Why do I put so much focus on what the scales tell me? I know that it's not the only way to measure progress, this isn't my first rodeo, I know how getting fit works. Yet I still get bummed when I step onto the scale for weekly weigh in.

Creating a weekly calorie deficit
This is how I lost 40lbs back in 2010 and how I plan to do it again! In case you aren't familiar with creating a calorie deficit, the first thing to know is that 3,500 calories = one pound. I have always liked to aim for a 7,000cal deficit each... Read more
That's my problem, well one of them anyway. You've met social drinkers? Yeah. That's me with eating. I went to a thing last night. I didn't have many calories to even play with, so I told myself to keep it light and keep it healthy. I did... at ... Read more

So, it's Monday. It feels like Monday. For some reason, I'm extremely tired today. For the previous four days I have been doing the BeachBody PIYO workout. Today is the day for rest. And no lie, that's all I want to do.

Sundays are super busy for me and my family, so I didn't find time to workout until after dinner time. But I did the PIYO Sweat workout for the first time and WOW! The title isn't joking.

How many times can you stop AND restart?
I guess as many times as it takes.
I haven't been on SparkPeople for three years. My last blog entry was in March of 2012. Since then, I have gained a TON of weight. A few weeks ago I was at a record high weight of 199lbs. I just came b... Read more
What's up, SparkPeople??
I've been MIA from this site for AGES. I still use my SP iPhone app sporadically but I haven't blogged in many moons. I have been lurking around this week and decided I should finally post a blog entry. Nothing much to say except that I am tryin... Read more
