October 2, 2012 really struggling
I've been really struggling lately. I can (occasionally) squeeze in a work out - and yes, it's squeezing it in or I can manage to eat right for (maybe) a day or two - then I get thrown a curve and it all thrown out the window, plus I can't seem... Read more
August 29, 2012 I gained how much?!
I'm back from the beach - it was a really good vacation, the kind where you lose track of what day of the week it is. Came back to reality, back to work, back to school for the kids, back to workouts for me and stepped onto the scale - I gained... Read more
August 4, 2012 Gained some weight, but maybe that's good?
I gained weight (again!) this weigh in, but I'm 3 weeks into BodyPump (last week was more like a 1/2 week due to my daughters' softball schedules!), but THIS time I'm thinking the weight gain is muscle mass! I can definitely see more tone in my... Read more
July 19, 2012 Finding my spark again!
So, I fell off the wagon, got run over by the wagon, and now I've pulled myself back up onto the wagon. The downward slide started months ago when my kids schedules started to get crazy and this mom discovered she had a very necessary second jo... Read more
May 7, 2012 CRAZY DAY
Really crazy day at work today. I was out sick the end of last week and today was my first day back - and I wish I could have been out another day or two!! One problem I thought I had fixed before I was out reared its ugly head again, so I spe... Read more
May 6, 2012 Getting back in the saddle
Yesterday was my oldest daughter's birthday. The girls and I went and got our nails done and then we went and got a little cake (4 slices) to celebrate her birthday. Once we got home, my youngest (who was home sick with me this week) and I wer... Read more
May 4, 2012 Sick Day again!
Today is my second sick day in a row. I think I was out of bed for 2 or 3 hours yesterday. It might not be much better today - my head just hurts too much to be upright. My hubby brought home the nasty head cold that was going around his lab ... Read more
April 18, 2012 - tooting my own horn!
OK, so I haven't lost any weight lately and I reset my Spark profile a couple of days ago. Yesterday, I FINALLY got the batteries I needed for my kitchen scale and my pedometer. Today, just at work - I did over 9000 steps! Once I got my walk ... Read more
April 2, 2012 - Mixed bag sort of day
Ok, I wasn't going to blog today - but I've been lurking around other folk's pages and was inspired - reading everyone's blogs is part of the reason I stay here, so I should contribute.
I stopped logging my food at lunch today when I realiz... Read more
March 26, 2012
Been a little crazy here. Girl Scouts have been busy - we wrap up a big project this Saturday ("Thinking Day" - for any of you former Girl Scouts - our area is celebrating a bit late this year!). Middle school softball is off to a good start a... Read more
March 15, 2012 W2D1 of Sugar Busters and Spring challenges
OK - today has been a challenge! Day TWO of the migraine from hell - I just got off the phone with my chiropractor - he has an opening tonight!! It's been a long time since I've had a migraine this bad that didn't respond to the meds. Yesterd... Read more
March 13, 2012 W1D6 Sugar and Spring challenges
What a GORGEOUS day it turned out to be! I took the dog for a walk today - he was panting at the end of it and I was "glowing"! We didn't even take the hill! So, it was a shorter walk that what we'd been taking at the end of the fall, but we ... Read more
March 11, 2012 W1D4 of Sugar Busters and Spring Challenges
Haven't had too much trouble with sugar the last few days, I'm not sure why. I've been busy, but not stressed. I spent yesterday cleaning out the kids "toy room" of their old furniture (this was a family project). I didn't know how to log tha... Read more
March 8, 2012 W1D1 Sugar Busters and Spring into Spring Challenges
Yep, you read that right - I'm doing two challenges at the same time. If you've read any of my blogs, you'd know I have a rabid sweet tooth. Chocolate SCREAMS my name, I haven't found a cake or pie that I can walk past, Girl Scout cookies - I ... Read more
March 3, 2012 Denial
Had to finally move my weight ticker up - yes I really did gain 3 pounds (ugh), it's not water weight, TOM, or any of the other excuses I had running through my head - they really have settled onto my body and have been stuck there for a month.
