Here's an update on life, exercise and my weight from October 25, 2011! I'm hoping to find some of my old spark friends still active on the site, and/or make new friends!
I took progress pictures last month that are below. This is June 2010... Read more

If you have not heard about the snowpocalypse in DFW right now, you are missing out on some sucky news. It has been one of the worst storms we've had in 15+ years and the entire metroplex has been iced in since Tuesday morning!! The worst part ... Read more
January is over and I logged 1500 fitness minutes!! I cannot believe it. I don't think that I have ever accumulated that many in one month. Also I "burned" over 13,000 calories - but I don't wear my HRM anymore because it's broken, so that is al... Read more
What if every time that you judged someone negatively in your head they turned to you and said, “Don’t judge me.”
First – that would be terrifying. But second, I bet you would figure out pretty quickly how to reverse your immediate judgment... Read more
One of the struggles I've had with spark since starting my wordpress blog is I'm never sure what to blog in which location. I love blogging on spark but I also really love to blog at wordpress. Plus wordpress is available to everyone, where as s... Read more

First, thank you to all my done girls for the birthday wishes - you guys are the best!

My Nutrition through the Lifecycle class ends tomorrow (with a huge final! ack!) but I'm really happy I took this class this summer. While I found a lot of the class very interesting and feel like I have learned SO much, none of it really had an... Read more
Well I am now officially down to my last two weeks of work. It's such a strange feeling, knowing that I'm leaving in two weeks and my life is going to be completely different. The closer my last day gets, the more excited I have been getting abo... Read more
We are now a little over 3 weeks from the biggest change of my life so far - quitting my job, being unemployed and going back to school as an adult.
I've been working towards this goal for the past year. I've been envisioning how everything... Read more
Running is such a mental battle. I remember when I started trying to lose weight, I felt like running was not a possibility for my life. As I started to run, I felt amazed that my body was capable of so much. Every new distance and speed is a ce... Read more
I had a fantastic session with my psychologist yesterday. She introduced me to some life lessons and life knowledge that really put things I've been struggling with into a new perspective. So of course, I came home and pondered on her words all ... Read more
So as you guys know I've been doing the spark people boot camp. Last week when I signed up for the 5K/10K, I decided to take this (current) week off the boot camp to focus on kick-starting my running and training plan for the races. I'm planning... Read more
I will be 100% honest when I say that I have been struggling with my weight loss for some time. Even before I started school, I still struggled with emotional eating at least once a week! Many people say that sustained weight loss is extremely d... Read more
I meant to post my Week 3 bootcamp update Monday but somehow I totally forgot! Last week didn't go AS well as week 1, but I still made progress. I finished all seven bootcamp videos, including doing two of them twice in a row (met my goal!) I al... Read more
