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
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
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
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).

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

Ironically, we were all in Richmond this past weekend ... Read more
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
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
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
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
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
So, yesterday was my birthday, and currently on the middle shelf of my fridge there is half of a Philly fluff cake and a whole cheesecake.

OK, so...I have 2 boxes of girl scout cookies sitting on my kitchen counter. UNOPENED, as of yet. Funny thing is, I didn't even order them. What's even funnier is that I got them from my DAD.
If you knew my Dad, you would laugh because he ... Read more
