Fitness Buddy Let Down

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      6 comments

Since April I've been training to walk/run a local 5K. When I started I was walking a slow mile and now I'm able to complete the full 5K (mostly walking). I'm really proud that I've been consistent through the hot summer. I've been walking ... Read more

5 Years w/Spark-Lots of Little Changes

Thursday, July 30, 2015      16 comments

I've made many changes since joining Spark 5 years ago. My weight loss has been slow, averaging 10 pounds a year. However, the scale keeps moving downward with no creep upwards. For me that's practically a miracle. In the past, I had no trouble ... Read more

Yesterday afternoon I attended an event, Keep Calm & Read On, at the library, which was sponsored by Random House. The Random House representative gave a lively talk about current and upcoming books published just in time for summer. The review ... Read more

How Can I Hold on to Spring Motivation?

Sunday, April 19, 2015      6 comments

You can tell it is spring because I am living outside in the garden. Every spring I get this incredible burst of energy and accomplish so much (inside and out). Not just physical things, even though I did go on a hike this morning, but I also ma... Read more

My January

Monday, February 02, 2015      2 comments

The last two weeks of January was challenging. I am suffering from insomnia. I've been dealing with bouts of insomnia my entire life so I have ways of coping. However, I'm still very tired which leads me to make poor dietary choices. I try to re... Read more

Good Things

Saturday, January 10, 2015      6 comments

As soon as I read the statement: Good Things are Going to Happen It resonated with me. I thought, "That's how I want to feel about each day!". It gives me a little h... Read more

Clean Slate

Friday, January 02, 2015      3 comments

The beginning of a new year always brings hope. It's a clean slate! I can leave behind the things that didn't turn out the way I imagined. I can build on things that have potential. I'm not one to make resolutions. I make small changes thro... Read more

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

Long, Healthy Harvest

Friday, September 16, 2011      3 comments

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

This morning I attended the first session of a six week Living Well with Diabetes workshop that is being sponsored by our local hospital. One day last week, I just happened to buy the local paper and the advertisement for the series caught my at... Read more

September Goals

Thursday, September 01, 2011      6 comments

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
