Slow & Steady Wins the Race!

Thursday, November 07, 2013      6 comments

Since joining Spark I've lost 45 pounds. The loss has been slow but consistent. In the past I would lose weight quickly and gain it back almost as fast (bet you've been there too!). However, when I joined I decided that I wasn't going on a diet.... Read more

Glad to be back!

Friday, November 01, 2013      7 comments

I've been neglecting Spark for months. I joined Weight Watchers and have been trying out their community site. Actually, trying isn't the right word. Struggling is more accurate. Even though I am being successful on their plan I am giving up on ... Read more

November Goals

Monday, November 07, 2011      5 comments

My goal for November is simple: Spark. This is my busy season and I have a tendency to get so involved with what is going on in the studio that I completely ignore me. On the days I Spark I seem to make healthier choices so I've scheduled 30 min... Read more

Back from Candyland & Ready to Tackle October Goals

Wednesday, October 05, 2011      7 comments

I'm back after disappearing for a week. I went to Candyland and am coming out of the sugar induced haze that I've been in during the past week. Actually, it wasn't all chocolate and gumdrops but it feels like it, especially when I see my morning... Read more

New Fat Memories or I Need a Hug

Thursday, September 22, 2011      13 comments

I normally weigh myself once a week, same time, same day, same lack of clothing. My weigh in day is Monday but today for some reason this little voice whispered, "Get on the scale." So I did. To my surprise I lost 3 pounds which means I weigh un... Read more

This morning I attended the 2nd session in a Living Well with Diabetes Workshop. This week we did an overview of what I would describe as general diabetes information. I wouldn't say that I learned anything new but it was a good refresher. Towar... Read more

Ahhh, September. One of my favorite months. I'm ready for a chill in the air, the change of the leaves, and swinging into my busy season at the studio. I don't want to get lost in my studio and to the many obligations I have like last season. Th... Read more

Moon in. Moon out.

Tuesday, August 09, 2011      7 comments

I was just catching up on my Spark e-mails and I noticed that August is "sleep" month. I have dealt with chronic insomnia most of my life so I'm drawn to any article that might offer me a key to conquering this special little nightmare. If... Read more

Saturday, April 23, 2011      6 comments

I had a very busy week this week. We had a big project to complete so I didnít have the time to Spark this week. Normally, if I have a big project all of the other things in my life get neglected. Spark was one of those things this week. It felt... Read more

Good Week

Sunday, April 03, 2011      6 comments

I want to write a witty and entertaining blog this week. However, I'm going to settle on a mediocre posting. I had a good week. I joined the 8 Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge and I had a good week. I focused on my goals. I used the nutrition... Read more
