My huge Valentine's Eve scare
Wow, I don't think I slept two hours last night. Just in time for Valentine's Day, I lost my wedding ring!! I remembered putting it on last night before hubby and I went out for pizza. Later, we met my friend at the train station at BWI airport ... Read more
I have no clothes for work!
I am looking to go back to work -- hopefully soon. In preparation for interviews and such, last night I tried on all of the nice work pants that I bought in the fall. NONE of them fit. I was SWIMMING in them! Even with a belt, which was also t... Read more
You know those weight-loss commercials?
Hubby and I had a good laugh the other day. The pants in this photo are ones that I wore pretty much all last summer (and the summer before too). In fact, there is a picture in my photo gallery of me weaaring them. I have three pairs, all the sa... Read more
1 year Sparkiversary!
Today marks exactly one year since I found and joined SparkPeople! I am the type of person who researches something to death before jumping in head-first, so in reality, my one-year anniversary really should be around June 1.
My journey st... Read more
Can Prada motivate me even more?
Ok, so, my reward for getting to 135 was to get a cute new purse. That was 3 pounds ago but I still haven't bought it yet. I wasn't sure what I wanted. And then today, I came across this beauty: The Prada "Tessuto Multicolor Weave Tote." It's o... Read more
Goodbye Heath Ledger
I am deeply upset about Heath Ledger's death at such a young age. He was truly talented (and a hottie to boot). I feel so sad for his little girl. I hope his family finds peace in this difficult time. What a shame!
Sometimes I think our soc... Read more
I had a really bad eating weekend and went to bed last night with indigestion. I had to take a tagament before I could fall asleep. Hopefully I have learned my lesson.
I need to STOP eating out at restaurants and cook at home instead. Sinc... Read more
Through rain, sleet or snow, Part 2
As I have mentioned here before, I usually walk to the gym. It's about a mile each way. Today, we are having a snowstorm. Unfortunately for me, I've noticed that it seems to rain or snow a lot on Thursdays, which is when I go to my favorite fit... Read more
Goal date coming up. Will I make it?
Currently I have my goal date set at February 27, which is my 33rd birthday. Will I make it? Can I do it? I have 21 pounds to go. That is a huge amount of weight to lose in a month and 13 days. I really want to make it. It will be tough, but I ... Read more
What a difference 1 pound makes
So yesterday, I weighed in at 136 pounds. According to my BMI, that means I am now at a normal weight!! At 137 pounds, I was still overweight. So this 1 pound loss is actually a milestone of sorts. Woo hoo!... Read more
The morning after
I went to the gym early this morning and pounded the treadmill. I went to bed upset after the Buckeyes' ugly loss last night, and so this morning I needed something to take my frustrations out on! LOL!
So despite everything, I was determ... Read more
What I learned in 2007
Happy New Year! Thanks to SparkPeople, I have learned so much in 2007 -- about myself, about food, about fitness and about goal-setting.
A few things I've learned:
1. I CAN stick to a regular exercise routine (6 months and counting). It's ... Read more
I love it! Usually I work out to whatever is on TV at the gym. But recently I was at my in-laws' house on a treadmill that didn't have a TV in front of it. I chose some rockin' tunes, and I discovered I actually wanted to keep going beyond my us... Read more
Goodbye 40 pounds!
As of today, I have lost 40 pounds!! I can't believe it. I had to weigh myself twice just to make sure. I still have 23 pounds to go, but just knowing I can lose 40 pounds is an awesome feeling! I won't say it's been easy, but I can truthfully... Read more
Feeling unfestive and crappy
The holiday season sure brings out the "best" in some people. I mean that very sarcastically.
Yesterday my husband got to our car after work, and saw that someone dumped a bunch of oil all over it. He had to then drive (with black oil on t... Read more
