Leaping Into Change!

Monday, February 29, 2016      0 comments

Good morning Sparkies, I couldn't resist a little Leap Day pun there. Please forgive. I've always said that March is my peak weight loss season. My birthday is mid January, you then have Super Bowl and Valentine's Day. I feel like the ... Read more

Making My Mark

Friday, August 14, 2015      1 comments

There used to be an old country song that said “Every time I make my mark, somebody paints the wall”. That’s kind of the way I’ve felt this summer in many areas of my life. Three weeks ago, we parted ways with our babysitter-the pe... Read more

The More Things Change..

Monday, July 27, 2015      0 comments

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

The Hassle

Monday, May 18, 2015      0 comments

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

5 Years...Really?

Thursday, April 30, 2015      1 comments

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

Thursday, July 29, 2010      1 comments

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

Hanging In

Hello everyone! 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

Sunday, July 11, 2010      0 comments

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

Monday, July 05, 2010      3 comments

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

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, Im going out of town for a few days with my husband and his parents. Its a little mini-vacation I guess. Vacations are hard on the waistline. Its easy to fall into a trap of saying Im on vacation; Ill eat what I want! Then you ... Read more

You Can't Help Someone Who Won't Help Themselves

Tuesday, June 08, 2010      4 comments

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!

Thursday, May 27, 2010      1 comments

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. Weight los... Read more

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
