The More Things Change..
A few years ago, I was a group fitness groupie, In fact, I had a FB page called just that for some of my group fitness friends. With all of the changes in my life, I'd gotten out of the swing of things but 2 weeks ago, I returned to a group clas... Read more
I work at a university-my alma mater-and this past weekend was graduation. I usually don't attend any of the ceremonies because, let's face it, they are boring as heck even if you are one of the graduates. However, this year I know a couple of s... Read more
It's been 5 years since I wrote a blog entry. WOW. I knew I had been away from Spark for a while but I didn't imagine it had been that long.
Since I last Sparked, I've done another weight loss program on and off. I'm happy right now with m... Read more
What Others May Think
I read a great blog entry on Spark People about not concerning yourself with what other people think. Actually, the main topic was wearing a bathing suit when you are overweight but it lead to the main point that you just have to do your own thi... Read more
Long time, no post. Sometimes that can mean bad things but I'm doing just fine. I actually started a new blog on wordpress and I've been using it as my journal. But I wanted to update here too.
I'm in Week 3 of Rachel ... Read more
Pity Party Is Over
Sooooo, my last entry was a bit of a downer. After some kind words and straight talk from some Sparkies and non-Sparkies alike, I've come to realize a few things.
1) One bad run doesn't mean I'm a failure. After I thought back at that week,... Read more
Not Sure That I Am Born to Run
I started Couch to 5K back in May. At first, I was very excited to have this new goal to work towards. Lately? Not so much.
I've written before that I don't enjoy running. I want to enjoy it because I know it burns calories, you can do it a... Read more
Iíve been having a hard time getting back on track after my vacation. For the record, I weighed today and Iím where I was pre-vacation so itís all good.
I logged my food last week but had a hard time getting my exercise mojo back. I walked... Read more
I certainly talked a good talk about my intentions for my vacation. I failed royally though in walking the walk, so to speak.
I ate ice cream every day. I had country fried steak. I had biscuits and gravy. I munched on all of the snacks my ... Read more
Taking a Break
Next week, Iím going out of town for a few days with my husband and his parents. Itís a little mini-vacation I guess. Vacations are hard on the waistline. Itís easy to fall into a trap of saying ďIím on vacation; Iíll eat what I want!Ē Then you ... Read more
You Can't Help Someone Who Won't Help Themselves
The last time I blogged I sort of ranted about people not taking responsibility for their weight loss problems. Almost as if I'd channeled her to come to life as a living example, a friend called me up for lunch.
This friend has some body i... Read more
All The Sparkies Stand Up!
For a long time, I've wondered what has happened to personal responsbility in our culture. It seems now that people brush off most things with "Well, it's not my fault.." and then they proceed to blame someone or something else.

Me Vs The Cinnamon Roll...Guess Who Won?
It is no secret that my hubby likes junk food. His habits have improved over the last couple of years but every now and then, he really lets the junk food flag fly. This past weekend's grocery shopping trip was one of those times.
Usually, ... Read more
Taking My Spark On The Road
This weekend I took a little trip with my mom and aunt. It started out as a girls weekend but being the dingdong that I am I unknowingly booked it on Mother's Day. So, it became a Mother's Day weekend outing. But whatever. The point is we got t... Read more
Measuring Up, Couch to 5K and Close to the Magic Number
This week I started the Couch to 5K program (C25K). As I've written before, I have sort of a love-hate relationship with running. I love the way I feel afterwards, I hate actually running. During my training sessions, we ran quite a bit. I even ... Read more
