I sparked my coworkers!

Saturday, January 05, 2013      12 comments

Yesterday a couple of my coworkers called and asked if I wanted to go to lunch with them at a nearby Mexican restaurant. Since we do not have children in class on Fridays, we get a bit of time to have lunch (Monday-Thursday we eat with our stude... Read more

January 3 will mark my 10 month Sparkiversary. I'm really, really glad I found this site. I have made many changes and attempted many challenges that I would not have tried on my own. I haven't come even close to losing the amount of weight I or... Read more

The Free LyddieCat Super Happy Aerobic Walking Show

Monday, December 03, 2012      13 comments

I'm feeling proud of myself because I got my rear in gear and did a couple of short, fun, fast walking workouts when I got home from work today. About halfway through, I realized that it was getting dark out, and my living room curtains were op... Read more

Starting this week off RIGHT!

Sunday, December 02, 2012      8 comments

I just finished a Coach Nicole 15 minute strength video. It kicked my butt, thus illustrating to me, once again, how badly I need to be doing ST. I only got one ST mini-session in last week. I procrastinated, ending up getting sick at the end o... Read more

My dog walks sloooooowly

Wednesday, November 28, 2012      8 comments

I love my dog, but he is not the speediest walking partner. He is old and achy and walks pretty darn slow. He still loves to walk, however, so I take him with me for 20 minutes or so a day. That's about his max; if we go too far, he will plant... Read more

I like my shadow.

Monday, November 12, 2012      11 comments

I just posted on NillaPepsi's blog the other day about how one of my current NSV's is liking the way my shadow looks. I go on a lot of afternoon walks and lately I have been noticing that my shadow looks a lot better than it used to. I have a mu... Read more

8 month SparkVersary and 10 pounds lost :)

Saturday, November 03, 2012      18 comments

I finally hit one of my weight loss goals today: 10 pounds lost! I feel so proud of myself. It has taken me a long time to lose it (8 months to the day since I have joined SP), but that's fine with me. Over the past 8 months, I have been learni... Read more

Superstorm Lyddie

It's grey and bleak and rainy in the aftermath of Sandy. We were very fortunate in my town (Chambersburg, PA) and escaped with some flooding and power outages. I know that some people had to evacuate their homes and there are still closed road... Read more

I've been venting a lot here about the stress I'm going through with my job, Well, I am starting to feel better (and so are all of you, since you don't have to suffer through another "Wah! Poor me" blog) Read more

I hate insomnia (and I'm not too crazy about sore feet, either). Grumpy blog.

Wednesday, October 17, 2012      11 comments

I am feeling very frustrated with my foot. I had been having pain in my right foot during the late spring/summer when my shoes wore out and I continued to try to work out in them (dumb, yes.) I changed shoes, changed insoles, replaced insoles, ... Read more

Where I am in October

Sunday, October 14, 2012      9 comments

I've been trying to get myself back into the healthy-eating and exercising groove lately. The beginning of the school year really threw me for a loop. Since I joined SP last March, this is the first beginning-of-the-school time that I have expe... Read more

Scales are temperamental beasts; hooray for measuring tape!

Sunday, September 23, 2012      10 comments

I have been suspicious of my digital scale for months, not because it consistently displays a number in the 200's when I'd much rather see one in the 100's, but because it has seemed crazily inconsistent. Sometimes I will weigh myself, see a wei... Read more

Met a mini-goal today :)

Sunday, September 16, 2012      7 comments

This morning I was looking in my closet for something to wear to church and came across a very cute denim skirt that I had bought at Goodwill last year, but had never worn because it was too tight across the stomach and hips. I had a vague idea... Read more

Welcome, weekend!

Saturday, September 08, 2012      6 comments

I made it to another weekend - yay! And the first two weeks of school are under my belt; things should start getting a bit easier soon. I had a cool NSV this week: I put on a pair of capris that I've had since last spring that used to be... Read more

Ho.Ly. Moly!

Tomorrow is the last day of school this week for my little preschool students and all I can say is...WOW, I AM EXHUSTED! I always forget how incredibly demanding the beginning of the year is; the children are so young and most have never been ... Read more
