Monday, September 16, 2013      6 comments

Hello my Spark friends. I miss you all. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about at least one of you and wonder how you are are. As I've said before, I don't have internet at home anymore, which has made it a little less convenie... Read more

Monday, May 27, 2013      7 comments

I haven't written in a long time my Spark friends. It's not that I haven't been working towards my goal, it's that I was in a state of limbo. I have had so much to say but nothing to say at the same time. Every time a thought would form in my mi... Read more

Hello Sparkies. It's been a while. Work has gotten crazy and I've been busy with, well, life! It's all in a good way though. I meant to write a six-month Spark anniversary blog but ooops I didn't do it so here I am more than two months after my ... Read more

Time to act like a pig. No, I won't be eating large quantities of unhealthy food but I will be playing in the mud. I signed up for my first big event and it's going to be a blast. I'm doing The Dirty Dash, which is about three and a half miles o... Read more

Tuesday, February 05, 2013      13 comments

After much advice from all of you and rethinking the way I'm approaching things, I've decided to try and do things a little differently and it's made all the difference in the world. I've taken my cardio down to four days a week. The fifth day w... Read more

If you really can't succeed without failing, I see a lot of success in my future. So here's what happened. It's Tuesday. That means bootcamp. Yes, the dreaded bootcamp. For those of you who don't know, bootcamp is an hour of torture. That's... Read more

Sunday, January 06, 2013      21 comments

Yes. It finally happened. Someone criticized my weight loss. I can only laugh because I've read so many blogs and message board posts from other sparkies whose loved ones and significant others have tried to hinder their progress but thus far I'... Read more

Plunging into the darkness

Monday, November 26, 2012      8 comments

I've been thinking about the dark side a lot lately. No, not the space occupied by Darth Vader. But the darkness inside us all and the horrendous nature of life. Then Sirensongs wrote about battling the darkness in herself and I read this articl... Read more

I brought my sexy back!
