Back to Spark
Hi everyone who reads this. I am officially back to SparkPeople as of 12/1/2011. The past couple of months have been rough medically and personally, and my weight is up to 190. But I feel like I'm in a positive position to get back on track. ... Read more
100-Day Challenge On Hold
So, my 100-day challenge has been officially put on hold. I had planned a restart date for later this week, but for right now it's indefinite. I'm in week 3 of a relentless miserable migraine, but at least i have an explanation for it now. I ... Read more
I'm almost halfway through my 100 day challenge, and I'm not feeling very optimistic. I'm on day 11 of this miserable migraine and really want it to end. I know I'm feeling down because of the migraine and I'll be fine once it's over. And I'm... Read more
Today is Day 39 of my 100 day challenge, and things are going OK. It is also day 5 in a week of daily migraines, and I'm SO very tired of it. This isn't unusual for me, but it's so *#%! annoying. My eating is on track, but i would REALLY love... Read more
Day 30 - One Month Down
Today is the last day of the first full month of my challenge. Reflecting back, I think that i did well but have plenty of room for improvement. After a couple of bouts of illness my workouts are still not back on par, but I'll work on that th... Read more
Day 26 - Going Strong and Baking Muffins
Today has been a wonderful day! I'm on track with all goals except working out. I took today off because I've been in the kitchen ALL DAY! The food pantry where I volunteer is having our annual fund raising breakfast on Saturday and I'm in ch... Read more
Day 25 - Upswing Continues
I've missed a few days with blogging but things are going well. There have been some ups and downs in the past few days, but mostly ups. I'm on track with my goals, though since i just resumed working out after a week off I'm not meeting my wo... Read more
Day 20 - On An Upswing!
This past week has been a rough one, but I feel that things are on an upswing. I haven't worked out now since Monday (feels like a LOT longer), and I think I needed this rest. I haven't been feeling refreshed or energized after working out for ... Read more
Day 18 - Crash and Burn
Ugh - Day 18 and I CRASHED! I woke up with a migraine and still feeling icky because of the thyroid thing, so another day with no workout. Saw my massage therapist and had a great massage, but on the way home I stopped at McDonald's. I ate a ... Read more
Day 17 - Rolling with More of Life's Ups and Downs
I went to the doc this morning to get my thyroid checked out. Got some answers but I'll be waiting a few more days for final results. I have acute thyroiditis that is going to require treatment, but we don't know what treatment until the blood... Read more
Day 14 - 2 Weeks Down!
Wow - I can't believe its been 2 weeks already! It has flown by! I haven't blogged in a few days because i haven't been feeling well again. Some usual stuff like the migraines, but some unusual stuff also. I need to make an appointment to se... Read more
Day 10 - A Little Down, but Hopeful
Not as happy a day today as yesterday, but a good day overall. Some days I feel a bit down about the fact that it takes me SO long to lose an ounce. I would love to be one of those people who loses a pound a week, but I never have. No matter ... Read more
Day 9 - Woo Hoo!
What a day - I feel great! I'm not sick, no migraine, no hurricane, no earthquake; just a good day! Awesome workout, on track with all my goals, and no damage to the house or property from the storm (yea!).... Read more
Day 6 - Just a Quick Note
Day 6 is going well. I'm on track with all of my goals today. This will be brief because I'm exhausted from hurricane prep. Aside from moving outdoor furniture, etc., I'm fearful of flooding so I had to move everything from the floor on the 1... Read more
Day 5 and continued Hurricane Prep
Wow - it looks like this is going to be worse than we thought. The weather forecast for this hurricane seems to get more bleek everytime I check. I bought groceries today and didn't do too much else (migraine). If you're in the line of this t... Read more
