Year 8 on SparkPeople and starting over

Wednesday, April 22, 2015      9 comments

I can't believe how fast time flies but I have been on SparkPeople since 2007. I joined in January with a sluggish start. Maybe I wasn't quite ready to embark on the journey right then. I had 60 pounds to lose. There was SO MUCH to look at on th... Read more

Stealing some computer time

Friday, November 09, 2012      5 comments

Yes, I am still here. Tracking food. Tracking fitness. What I am still bad about is keeping up with blogs, groups and message boards. I don't get to play on the computer all that much these days. As such, it's not easy to Spark via phone except ... Read more

Wow, it has been a long time!

Well, HELLO, to anyone who is still subscribed to read my blogs. Wow, it has been almost a year and a half since I last posted a blog. Where on earth did the time go? So much has happened since I last blogged! The most exciting thing has been t... Read more

Respect for my body

Tuesday, May 31, 2011      7 comments

Last week was a tough week. Without going into all the details, I'll just say that my body failed me. Or, quite possibly, I failed it. I'll never know, but more than likely it was a combination of both. All last week, I took a break from w... Read more

Tried a new workout today

Wednesday, May 18, 2011      8 comments

My gym recently added TRX suspension training. It's pretty cool and a great workout for the core and upper body, especially. For anyone who is curious what it is, here is a YouTube video (it will explain it better than I can). www.yout... Read more

One slice of pizza is an hour at the gym

Tuesday, May 10, 2011      18 comments

When I am at the gym and not taking a fitness class, I like to listen to Jillian Michaels' podcast to pass the time on the machines. Recently she had Bob Harper on the show, which was cool! They said something to a caller that really kind of h... Read more

My New Toy

Wow, it has been ages since I blogged!! I am still here, just mostly tracking food/exercise minutes and reading message board threads that I am subscribed to. There doesn't... Read more

My daughter is an escape artist

Tuesday, April 05, 2011      8 comments

OK, so...I have not been to the gym in several days and was looking forward to going to my Body Combat class last night! But my daughter, the Houdini, had other plans. :) She decided to escape from her crib yesterday afternoon, which sent us in ... Read more

One-year anniversary of my first 10k

Monday, April 04, 2011      4 comments

Saturday was the Monument Avenue 10k in Richmond. I ran it last year; it was the first (and only) 10k I ever ran. It is such a fun race!! I ran with my husband and brother-in- law. Ironically, we were all in Richmond this past weekend ... Read more

So NOT worth it!

Thursday, March 10, 2011      7 comments

That burger I had last night, I mean. My stomach hurt when I got home. It's the next morning and I still feel have that "I ate something greasy, salty, icky" feeling. This is a good thing. My body is reminding me why I don't eat this way very o... Read more

I have to be good today

Wednesday, March 09, 2011      3 comments

Tonight my hubby's coworkers invited us out to dinner after work. The place we are going is a burger place. It is one of those where burgers cost double what they should and you can choose from all sorts of fancy toppings (peanut butter burger, ... Read more

The cheesecake is gone!

Monday, March 07, 2011      6 comments

It's bittersweet. LOL. My mom's cheesecake is my favorite dessert in the world. Hubby and I were both sad to eat the last of it on Friday. But my waistline is happy. Thank goodness my husband likes cheesecake and enthusiastically helped me eat... Read more

Interesting new machine at the gym

Thursday, March 03, 2011      4 comments

Yesterday a new machine at the gym caught my eye. It's a elliptical/bike hybrid. Basically you sit down on it like a bike but pedal like you are on an elliptical. There are also features where you can do chest presses and other strength exercise... Read more

Body Combat fail

Tuesday, March 01, 2011      5 comments

I had been trying to coerce the hubby to take a Body Combat class with me at the gym for a loooong time. He doesn't usually take classes, but he he finally agreed to come to the class with me last night. My favorite instructor teaches on Monday ... Read more
