I don't even know where to start.
I've tried to write this blog a dozen times over the past several months, each time no easier than the time before.
I've noticed the absence of some of my Spark friends in the past and I've wondered wh... Read more
After having been at a frustrating, unexplainable standstill in my weight [I take that back, I think I gained] for the past 9 weeks, despite having a trainer and eating well, I have actually lost some weight!
I am enjoying a rare morning - that of having the house to myself [well...besides the cat and the dog, who hardly count because, Thank the Good Lord - they don't have poseable thumbs therefore making it impossible for them to use and/or constant... Read more
Today marks the 8th day [in a row] I've gotten on my elliptical for at least 15 minutes. It's the 8th day in a row that I've made the choice to get my fanny out of bed, and bypassing that comfy couch I SO love to nap on while Mark is getting r... Read more

I'm not doing myself any favors by making excuses for anything.
Neither are you.

Got up at 5:15 a.m. to take care of my crockpot full of yogurt. I scooped it all out into a strainer lined with coffee filters and set it in the fridge over a bowl to drain the whey. Then I washed out the crockpot, added 3 pounds of skinless ... Read more
I have today off so I slept in, and then I started my day with a cup of coffee, a tiny bit of flavored creamer (something I intend to conquer) and... as I sat there I knew I needed to get a workout in.
I changed, laced up my shoes and set... Read more
My last few weeks have been pretty good.... no binging, and for me, that's great.
I will continue that trend.... ask myself, "what is the best choice for me/"
I will exercise at least 4 times per week. My TRX should be here either to... Read more
It's been quite a year. Not exceptionally bad; just not exceptionally good either. And I'm ready for good. I'm ready for better. I am SO ready for better. I have a good feeling about 2012 for some reason; I can't put my finger on it, but I ... Read more
