All systems go!
Got up this morning, ready to set up my Fitbit, and come to find out, still no internet connection. I'm really confused because everything else was working just fine. Some of my other spark friends said that the site was having problems. I messa... Read more
A minor setback
After what I thought was a good weigh in yesterday morning, I slipped a little bit and ate some things I shouldn't have and it showed this morning. I'm disappointed in myself but, at the same time, I know I will have days like this. Putting that... Read more
Its all about realistic goals
When I started out on January 1st, I knew I had 24 pounds to lose to reach my goal. Typically, I would hope to lose 5-6 pounds the first week, only because I've done this in the past, then gained it all back because I lost it too fast. This year... Read more
Thank you spark buddies!
I've been with spokespeople for a few years now and I admit I've been a bit fickle from time to time. I start every new year off with the best of intentions for losing weight but it only seems to lasts a few days, and then it just becomes a dist... Read more
Attention Fitbit users
I bought a Fitbit One 2 years ago and have loved every minute of it. It has motivated me to push myself farther than I thought I could go. I starting logging miles, found my self climbing stairs, and I found out how well I was sleeping because i... Read more

Still going strong......but
Well, I'm a little disappointed that I didn't hit my step goal yesterday but I still met all of my other goals so I consider it a win. I did all of my workouts, did my bible reading, and stayed within my calorie limit so I feel I had a good day.... Read more
Completely nailed my first day
I set very specific goals for myself this year. I thought long and hard about everything I wanted to accomplish for myself, then wrote them all down. I got up yesterday, determined to start my new year off on the right foot. I completed my worko... Read more

We interrupt this program........
We interrupt this program due to health issues. I made it through most of October and did really well, but it all came to an abrupt halt when I developed some significant breathing difficulties. I started to experience chest pains and had a hard... Read more
I realized today that when I'm working the hardest and accomplishing the most, it seems to be when I'm listening to music. With that in mind, I am going through my iPod and setting specific songs that motivate me and make me move. I admit to dan... Read more
I got a lot accomplished today. I incorporated my workout into my daily chores. I did all the laundry, which led to climbing 10 flights of stairs. I washed every dish in the house, and wiped the cupboard shelves down. Add vacuuming and you've go... Read more
Cold but motivated
It's really chilly today, so I've been trying to stay inside today. I'm doing all my workouts and having soup and hot cocoa to warm me up. Generally I love this time of year, but today it feels exceptionally cold. I'm not a fan of the cold. Mayb... Read more
