Frustrated... with myself
I am so frustrated with myself this morning that I don't even know where to begin!
I admit that the past 2 months have not been the best. I actually did okay in October, then really struggled in November with food and exercise. I know that n... Read more
It has been such a long time since I last posted a blog and I guess it's because I haven't had anything to contribute. Or anything I wanted to share! Mainly since while I still regularly checked Spark, read your blogs, and tracked, my efforts ... Read more
New Year's 2012
Welcome to 2012! Another year has ended and a new one has begun. I'm not big on New Year's resolutions, but I am going to use today as a day to stop making excuses and allowances where they are not justified.
Everything dates back to my... Read more
I feel like a fraud...
One of the interesting things about meeting my weight loss goal (over a year ago) is learning how to maintain. How to eat to not lose weight, but not slip back into old habits. It was easier for me to cut out "bad" foods altogether than to hav... Read more
This is a challenge to me, to get back to where I want to be. To not let myself continue to backslide. Brief back story: I started Spark in April 2009 at 204 pounds, lost 60 pounds in a year and began “maintenance,” was able to stay within a f... Read more

This isn't a long blog, but it was too long for a status update.
I knew I had eaten too much today. Yet, I continued to eat.
I knew we were going to a birthday party tonight with cake, but instead of declining the cake or decreasing my o... Read more

Overall, March was a good month. I was able to maintain my weight and tried to get more heal... Read more
End of February Update
I kind of got through February as though in slow motion. I went to work, got the chores done, took care of the kids, got my minimal exercise in. But I felt as though I was just going through the motions. When I got on the scale just over a we... Read more

As I was leaving work today, I was in a car accident. I was rear-ended. Seriously, though, I think I have a curse of some sort. I am always rear-ended. I know it's better than being the one causing the accident, but I've been rear-ended 4 ti... Read more
Sub 10 minute mile!
I have to start by saying, I love my Garmin.
No, I don't work for the company, but I love the information it tracks for me. I love that I can keep track of my mile splits during a run and see what my current pace is.
Last weekend, I ra... Read more
As you know, I've been dealing with a cold all week. It started with a sore throat on Sunday and was in my head Monday through Wednesday. Wednesday evening it settled more into my chest and I lost my voice. My 5 year old keeps asking me why I... Read more
