Change is unavoidable
Well, I'm again headed to major changes in my life. I have no idea how it will all pan out. What I do know is that I am exhausted from the roller coaster of emotions that my life has been on for the past 7-8 years. With the newest change in m... Read more
Let's hope I like it!
A friend and businss associate is taking me as her guest this evening to check out her gym. It's a nationally known chain, and from the comments I heard with the women I used to work out with at Ladies Workout Express, they also enjoyed this gy... Read more
Time flies by...
It's been a long time since I've written a blog - about 4 years, 3 months. It really does seem like just yesterday when I was here back in 2007. My whole life has done a complete 180-turn around. Things changed drastically for me in this time... Read more
Zumba is as Zumba does
This past week I started taking my workout clothes in my duffle bag to work so that I could change into them and go straight to the gym after work. I'm trying to get myself into the habit again of going to the gym BEFORE I go home since I lose ... Read more
This was the Healthy Reflections article that I just finished reading on the SP site. The part of the article that struck a chord with me is the line regarding some people are just inconsiderate and mean because they are probably insecure and t... Read more
He Popped THE Question!!
On Wednesday, September 5th, Steve, the love-of-my life, popped the question while we were visiting at Meig's Point, the first beach he and went to last October.
Steve is a very romantic and supportive partner. I couldn't ask for a better-... Read more
I need a little boost
I can see and feel changes in my upper arms, neck and shoulders and my upper thighs since I've incorporated the added cardio that Steve suggested over a month ago. However, I've been afraid to weigh and measure. It was disappointing to slowly ... Read more
How AWESOME he is
Well, he's back to visit me again...it's really cool this time. He's been so supportive, too. Prior to coming down to visit, he gave me a bunch of working out tips for increased cardio and a whey protein power drink in the evening before bed. ... Read more
So much has happened since last October!!!
WOW!! I've been so incredibly busy lately that I didn't realize I hadn't posted anything current in my blog.
Well, my trip to Connecticut to meet Steve face-to-face has come and gone, and what a vacation it was! Steve is the most amazing ... Read more
16 days until I'm with Steve!!!!
It's Monday, October 16th, and it's exactly 16 days away from when I will be flying into the Bradley International Airport to meet Steve face-to-face. It's amazing how close we have become over the past 7-8 months since we met on the Spark site... Read more
Update to JEANS DON'T LIE
...Ain't that the truth!!! LOL!!!
I originally added this post to my journal on July 12th, only 2-months ago. These same jeans that I mentioned 60-days ago, I can now pull down off my waist and past my hips with them ZIPPED AND BUTTONED!!... Read more
No more Plateaus & He's Back!!!!
Well, as my very special workout/diet buddy Steve kept telling me, I had NOT hit a plateau last month when I ended up gaining 1.5 pounds, but lost about 1-2 inches. I was REALLY upset that I'd gained weight and NOT lost weight, but I also did n... Read more
My First PLATEAU!!!!
I got weighed and measured today. I guess all the stress I've been under FINALLY caught up with me. Even though I've been VERY committed and going to the gym, mixing up my routine, I only lost 1.25 in. off my arms (combined)... Read more
Jeans don't lie
Well, on Friday, 7-7-06, I wore my jeans to work, because it was "casual" Friday. I'd washed them earlier in the week, so of course, when I initially put them on this morning, they felt snug; not tight, just snug. But by mid-day, they were get... Read more
Dietary Tracker on the site...not sure about it yet.
Well, yesterday, I added the dietary goal tracker to my Sparkpage, which also adds this information to my "signature" line on each thread, etc. Since it doesn't show how tall I am, or my bone structure, I'm not sure if I like this or not. I'm ... Read more
