I hate that word, "but." After being on Spark for a while, I told myself that I would no longer use that word. It's the "buts" that held me back in the past. "I want to work out BUT I'm too tired." "I want to eat better BUT that burger looks so ... Read more

GUM! I always crave sweets in the evening. I want to nip that in the bud, so I decided to try chewing gum instead. I knew that tip already but recently saw them do it on The Biggest Loser and decided, why not? And it works great! I got that new ... Read more

I received Jillian's No More Trouble Zones from Netflix recently and yesterday I popped it in. What an awesome workout! I couldn't do all the exercises because I have a hardwood floor and no mat, but I attempted to do some of the floor exercises... Read more

I have a small bag of clothes that are looking for a new home. But they don't want to leave me! LOL! I had given away most of my bigger clothes but saved a few cropped pants and a top that I thought I could wear during pregnancy including ... Read more

Getting back to running

Tuesday, October 13, 2009      7 comments

I've decided to ease my way back into running. I usually walk to the gym but recently started to run a bit of the way. It is one of those things that your body "forgets about" unless you keep it up. So...I am seriously out of running shape, as i... Read more

Another new plan

Monday, September 28, 2009      9 comments

Hungry like a wolf

Friday, September 04, 2009      7 comments

These days, I am sooooo hungry! I just eat everything in sight - mostly junk! Part of the problem is that we haven't really gone out to do a respectable grocery shopping trip since Laila was born. Also, normal, quiet sit-down meals are a thing... Read more
