Here wagon, wagon, wagon....
Wow. So I always seem to find my way back to Spark People, I think simply because of the positively. Since my son has been born, I've told myself that I "was ready to get fit again," but my actions spoke louder than my words.
I had been st... Read more
I've written this blog many times, about being "back" after a long time, re-dedicating myself to my health journey....only to disappear for months, rinse & repeat.
So why is this different? I'm actually asking for help, which is not easy fo... Read more
Back at it!
Hello Spark Land!
I have not been a very good SparkFriend....staying away from the site for so long. I was looking at old blog posts, old friends and just realizing that though you may not think about it, life moves on weather you are ther... Read more
Wow...Sometimes you need a reminder!
I was confused this morning when my inbox was flooded with SP mail messages. "Huh?" my fuzzy-non-awake brain thought. Then I saw it--I was reposted as Motivator of the Day.
This really reminded me how far I've come and where I am now. I've... Read more
As I put my 7-month old down for his nap, I came in and saw a folder of pics from when he was first born. I started looking at him and I am amazed at how fast he's grown and how big he's gotten.
If I could have done the whole pregnancy ove... Read more
Woo Hoo! I lost!
So, I show a 5 pound loss, but I never tracked my first 3-pound loss. I'm not sure when I last stepped on the scale, but I know for sure I've lost 2 pounds within the last two weeks. I'll take it!
I'm doing well with getting cardio in at le... Read more
Been a Little Down
Warning: This is a mopey post, and I'm sorry. I just need to get some of these feelings out. Feel free to not read if you're not interested.
I'll admit it, I have been a little down, frustrated and angry. I'm not sure where all these emotio... Read more
I did it!
If you don't know, I live in Texas. Houston to be exact. And we are known (amongst other cowboy-like things) for our heat. Houston also has bad humidity.
In the past I have used that as an excuse. Even though I had a gym membership and all... Read more
Summer is HERE!
Well, Spark Friends,
This is the magical time of year that every teacher patiently (or not so patiently) awaits--the summer! Woo hoo! I made it kicking and screaming (mainly due to sleep deprivation with having a baby) but I made it non-the... Read more
After I gained my 56lbs during pregnancy, I kind of got stuck after losing about 23 pounds/fluid. I wasn't eating junk, but because of breastfeeding, I was hungry ALL the time.
I went to my doctor to get checked up for my insulin... Read more
I'm back! With baby pictures!
I had my baby! Austin Jay was born on December 2nd at 10:48 in the evening via C-section. He was a healthy 7lbs 15oz and 20 1/2 inches long.
It was a great pregnancy--I... Read more
So, I have been stressing and worrying for the past three weeks wondering if my new pregnancy would come to term or if I would miscarry. I'm kind of pissed my dr. even put that though into my head. But anyway, I went in for my first scheduled pr... Read more
So, I've been away from SP for quite awhile. I go in cycles...
The good news is that I got back down to 160, the bad (for weight-loss) news is that I have to stop worrying about losing weight and more about eating healthy, because....are yo... Read more
Been a Week....
It's been a week without a word from me...I have been tracking and doing most of my exercise.
I did have an aggressive goal of getting to my goal weight by May 24th. So far, the SCALE HASN'T MOVED. But, I am seeing my body change. I see mu... Read more
Just Say NO!
To evil donuts.
Yes, I did it, I said no. One of the parents of my choir kids brought my choir students donuts and juice since they sang for Donuts for Dad a couple weeks ago and they ran out of donuts. The poor choir didn't get any, and no... Read more
