I completed my first 5K
All last week I felt frustrated, sad, and hopeless. I wanted to delete my spark page and start all over. I didn't want to admit that my weight had crept up to 161 (weigh-in as of Friday). All my weight loss efforts down the drain. But I conf... Read more
I need to step it up!
I've been extremely busy for the past weeks with school and my new part-time job . I got a job at a bakery shop where we sell smoothies, turnovers, pies, coffee almonds, chocolate pretzels, you name it (yeah best place to work at when trying to... Read more
It's been a while since I've blogged, but so far all my weight loss efforts are going great!
Currently I'm at 157.8! I'm down 2.2 pounds since I recommitted to Sparks and down 7.4 since starting Weight Watchers. I'm very excited to see t... Read more
Monthly body measurements
Friday is not my weigh-in day, but this morning I stepped on the scale and saw... 158!! I finally broke the plateau! For over a month or so I'd see 161-159, so when I saw that I'm down 1 pound I got excited! Besides focusing my weight loss onl... Read more
It's that time of the year- back to school
It's that time of the year- back to school! I'm nervous, really nervous. I'm not nervous about the academics, but how the stress of school will affect me. Last school year I gained ten pounds because I did not prioritize what was important- m... Read more
Week 2: Day 3
Thank goodness this day is over! (Note: I'm blogging Pacific Time)
For some strange reason I woke up feeling sad and hopeless. I had emotions I couldn't explain. I think I had a nightmare, yes hopefully that was it. Honestly I was feelin... Read more
Finally made my vision collage
I finally made a vision collage... better late than never. I was not sure what exactly to put on it. I only had two magazines at the time so I put several celebrities' bodies who match my height (like Shakira) and also put some phrases. Reali... Read more
Week 1: Day 3
The past two days have been very good. I've stayed within my calorie range 1300-1400, and been hitting the gym! I've been doing a workout from Fitness Magazine (it's on my previous blog) that burns around 200 calories... I will stick to that fo... Read more
I've been yo-yoing with my weight for more than a month (159-161), and it's time to get serious! I've been tracking foods and workouts, but my lack of planning/dedication is what's setting me behind. I had a hard time finding cardio workout and... Read more
Away weekends are harmful when there's no planning...
Quick update from July: I did not make it to 155 as I wanted to for the Real Madrid soccer game. I was at 159 when I went to the game; and although I was only 4 pounds away, I was still glad to have seen a loss.
Okay, I hate blogging ab... Read more
Hamburgers + french fries = a bad weekend
I'm now in the high 150's !!! I worked very hard to get here...but this weekend I blew it off!! Ugh.
It all started with drinks on Thursday, and four drinks led to food cravings. So, I had a hamburger along with small fries very late at ni... Read more
I guess I'm passing on the spark LOL
I just got back from a jog out in the orchards behind my house, and while I was enjoying my jog out in the nowhere I turned around and saw someone in mini-shorts with no shirt (not a good physique to look at I tell you)... Oh dear I then realize... Read more
Keeping track of calories
I've been on WW (Weight Watchers) for about a month or so. Last week was my weigh-in and I was upset about gaining a pound. So this week I tracked every single item I put in my mouth. I did pretty good on tracking calories instead of WW po... Read more
Yesterday was my weigh-in at my Weight Watchers meeting, and I was up one pound, which puts me at 161! Pretty much I was upset, all week I had worked out and counted points.. I felt like this weight would never come off.
But one this if fo... Read more
I copied this from another Spark member
Sharing a touching story ...
While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked up a stone
and scratched lines on the side of the car.
In anger, the man took the child's hand and hit it many times not realizing ... Read more
