Last week I didn't see a loss at all, and this week I'm only down 0.2 lbs. Not what I wanted to see on the scale! I guess I need to kick it into high gear and change some things around. I always tell myself that a plateau is a good sign beca... Read more
Well, this is the first time since the new year that I've gotten onto the scale and not seen a loss. Considering that I was sick last week and didn't get to work out as often as I usually do, this is not a huge shock. The important thing is th... Read more
It was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
My friend has been living with her boyfriend for about a year now, and this morning she sent me a text at 5:00 am to tell me that his mother passed away very suddenly in the middle of the night. I feel so badly! They were all so close, and his... Read more
It's getting easier.
Well, my office is still full of junk food, but it's becoming easier and easier to walk right by it. This morning my boss brought in doughnuts for everyone- and just the smell of them grossed me out! I mean, they're essentially fried sugar. Y... Read more
What a day!
Today was exhausting at work! I started at 8 am and had to squeeze my usual day-to-day stuff into a 2-hour period to make it over to this luncheon my company was holding for its clients. Once the luncheon was over, it was straight to a brand n... Read more
Now that I've been working with my therapist for a little while, she suggested that I start keeping a success journal to keep me focus on the positive changes that I'm making instead of obsessing over the bumps along the road. While I won't mak... Read more
A Bump in the Road
Yesterday I went shopping with my friend to help her find her perfect wedding dress. Surprisingly, she f... Read more
Why I think my office is out to get me...
So while I haven't used the words "I'm on a diet" while at work, my department only contains 3 people so of course my two co-workers know that I'm trying to get healthy. They see that the foods I'm eating have changed, they know that I'm at the... Read more
Want to break your fast food habit?
This is completely disgusting! It was posted to a friend's FB page and I was just totally stunned by it.
Guess what McDonald's food item is pictured below?
Keeping it together.
Today was the first day back after a 3-day weekend, and it was BUSY! It was just such a chaotic day, and t... Read more
A gold star for the day!
This time around on Spark I'm really trying to learn from my past mistakes that led me off track. One of these is viewing food as a form of self indulgence or self care, a reward. So today, I took advantage of my day off and did something I've... Read more
A Sparked Life
It feels SO good to be living a Sparked life again! I have so much more energy, I'm happier, and more focu... Read more
Letting go and getting real.
One of the things I struggle with in my personal life is the desire to be independent. I'm not sure if it's because I'm an only child, because I'm a feminist, or if I'm just a stubborn mule. (Probably all three!) Whatever the reason, it's a p... Read more
So far, so AWESOME!
I've really been making the most of this week. I'm eating within my nutritional ranges, exercising, drinking lots of water, getting plenty of sleep, and trying to be conscious of any negative self-talk.
