Coming back after a long break...
So much has happened in my life since I was last on sparkpeople. I had kind of been on vacation from my goals to get healthy... So Monday this week I was inspired to put on my fitbit and recommit to my pland-based eating, I started tracking wh... Read more
I had a super busy weekend helping at my church and consequently, healthy food was neither available, nor consumed! LOL I wound up eating pretty badly and because I was exhausted, I justified that I had somehow "earned" the break in the diet. ... Read more
It's been a long time...
I've been away for a very, very long time LOL. I'm just now coming back to spark people again. I love the community and the website, and it just makes fitness fun. Anyway, it's been a couple of years since I've been on here, so I thought I'd ... Read more
June in Review
So June had ups and downs, but I think overall, it was a positive experience. I did make steps forward, I lost inches, even though my weight went up and down (but averaged the same) I know I came away with progress:
- I'm exercising more, re... Read more
week 4 review
...well I had the best intentions. I didn't do horribly, but it wasn't great. this week, like the weeks past, was a complete blur. So I didn't kick week 4's butt like I had hoped. But tomorrow is a new day and a new week. I'm going to try t... Read more
Week 4, day 1
I'm totally going to kick week 4's butt!!! I stayed in my calorie range completely with no fudging! I'm off to a roaring start, let's hope I keep this momentum going!... Read more
Week 3 Review
Looking back, the past two weeks did not go as well as I had hoped. Week 1 was a blazing great start, but things got really busy in real life during weeks 2 and 3. It didn't derail my desire to do good, but it did get in the way of what actual... Read more
Week 3. Thursday
This week has flown by, I'm doing my best to get exercise in but I'm not always successful... At least I'm back on it today. It's just been so busy and I realized that when I don't make it a priority -- or other things become a bigger priorit... Read more
Wow. Week 3 Wednesday
Yesterday was a blur. I didn't get on the computer at all! But I did some kick butt cardio by walking all over the zoo for two hours! When I got on the scale this morning I actually lost 4 lbs!!! I don't know if it was a fluke, or all my har... Read more
Week 3 is going to be GREAT!
Last week was rough. I was stretched pretty thin and I think my motivation faltered a little. But in thinking back, I realized that I have made some great progress -- even though it's not on the scale. I realized that since I joined Spark Peo... Read more
This week in review
Wow. This week was crazy. Especially yesterday and Wednesday -- I had a bunch of client work come due all at once, and new projects that needed to be completed immediately. (I'm a graphic designer / SAHM and I do design work from home.) So I... Read more
Week 2, Day 3
Finally got some sleep last night. Wow. I'm still tired from not sleeping the past two nights, but I'm choosing not to focus on that and make today a great day and get everything done I need to do. Because if I focus on how tired I am, I will... Read more
Week 2 day 2
Staying the course! I think I did pretty good today. But I noticed something about myself -- I think I do better (at eating right and making healthier choices) when I'm on my own rather than when I'm around other people. I don't know why that... Read more
So I thought the sleep one would be a gimme this week because I always get at least 7 or 8 hours every night -- even with our one-month old. But last night was brutal! My husband had a big day today so it was important that he got his sleep..... Read more
So this was a short week LOL! At any rate, yesterday was awesome! I actually stayed within my calories for perhaps the first time since joining SP! (I only started in May). So I have a huge sense of accomplishment and I know it can be done! ... Read more
