Holy moly. I have a lot going on right now (and I know that you, dear reader, have a lot going on too. I'm just feeling a little whiny right now. Sickening, I know). The school year is ending, so I am catching up on all my delinquent paperwork... Read more

How a cheese sandwich turned my whole day around...
We had A Horrible Day at work today. I say "we" because my co-teacher and I were both overwhelmed by today. It was just one of those crazy, busy, stressful days that happen sometimes in a preschool classroom. I woke up with a headache this morn... Read more
I was ready to take my scale out into my yard and beat it to death with a rock. Two weeks of seeing the same number was starting to get to me. This morning I finally, finally got to see the number 247 instead of 248. I was just plain tired of s... Read more
6 week Sparkiversary!
I've been here 6 weeks today! That feels like a milestone; I haven't stuck to a consistent healthy eating/exercise plan for that long in about 7 or 8 years. Even though the scale says I am only down 6 pounds, my muscles are telling me that the... Read more
The inevitable set-back...
I have been a little more lax about exercising and eating well this week and the scale reflected that. Back up to 249. **sigh** In the past, this would have sent me diving for the pantry, then holing up on the couch with the remote and a bag o... Read more
I rode my bike!
Okay, so some people would read the title of this blog and say, "Big deal, lady. You rode a bike. Whoopee." Well, for me, it really IS a big deal. About two years ago (or maybe even three), my husband and I bought a pair of bikes from our neig... Read more
Holy cow...I'm shrinking!
I took my measurements yesterday and was stunned; 1.5 inches gone from the waist, 1 inch gone from the hips, .25 gone from the neck and calves, and 1 inch gone from the thighs. WOW. I thought my pants were fitting looser, and now I know why.

Is this really me, thinking like this?
It's funny how much my thinking about exercise has changed during the past month. Today at work I pulled a muscle in my leg running around outdoors with kids. My first thought was "Oh crap! I hope I didn't really hurt myself; I want to work out... Read more
Three weeks down...many more to go.
So I have lost 5 pounds since joining Spark three weeks ago. I'm really happy about that. I just looked at the scale in disbelief and said out loud "It's working! I'm doing it!" After losing these 5 pounds, a mere one-twentieth of the extra wei... Read more
Two weeks in and feeling stronger
How is it possible that I am actually enjoying exercise? I have never enjoyed it in my life. I've always liked taking walks, but never with any regularity and never as intentional exercise. Oh, I've exercised before, but always in a grudging, h... Read more
Mean-Girl, you can get lost now.
While I was lying in bed last night, resenting the time change and trying to clear my mind enough to fall asleep, I began thinking abut Spark and the things I have learned here in such a short time. I was feeling so encouraged by my weigh-in tha... Read more
Feeling good about myself is a good feeling.
I have not always been nice to myself. I have spent a lot of years eating too much, drinking too much, and being too sedentary. For a long, long time I have felt like it doesn't matter how fat I get because I'll never be thin and I'll never be ... Read more
Okay, so I am still plugging away with little changes this week. I know this is only day 4, but I feel like if I can make it this whole week with logging in, tracking food and tracking exercise, that I will have made a good start. When I have t... Read more
going up (but not on the scale, I hope!)
I'm feeling very up. Yoga was TERRIFIC! Why did I ever stop going in the first place? It felt so good to stretch and use all kinds of muscles that I haven't used in forever. I have been really stressed with my job, my husband's health issues,... Read more
