Man, things have been busy! A very stressful time at work, and I started to pick up some really bad habits. Long story short, I was eating and drinking too much. Not good. And it really wasn't helping my stress levels- it was just making eve... Read more

2nd Day Back

Sunday, April 28, 2013      1 comments

My second day back on track, doing well. Had a good start to the morning- got straight up and went for a workout, which is probably the first weekend workout I've done for about a month. So that was a great start, and kept me going through the... Read more

Been gone but now I'm back and I need some help

Saturday, April 27, 2013      2 comments

Joined spark in 2009 and had some great success!, made it to my goal weight and beyond. And I even maintained it for about a year after I took my spark-hiatus. But I recently started a new job, which I love, but has shot my stress level up to ... Read more

Quick update because life is calling- but I'm doing great! I'm totally back on track, and I have been for over two weeks now. Last week I was really strict about my diet- I mean I literally ate 100% clean, everyday, without a slip-up. Holy mo... Read more

PMP How I Did/How I'm Doing (Thanks Yoovie)

Tuesday, September 20, 2011      2 comments

Confession- I've been having a tough time, and I don't really know why. It's kind of hard to put into words, but basically, I just haven't felt like myself. I feel unsettled and off-track, and worst of all- I've been unable to get back "on-tra... Read more

I Had a Decision to Make this Morning

Saturday, September 10, 2011      6 comments

And I'm very proud that I made the right one! I've spent the entire work-week scratching and clawing my way back on track, and I managed to lose about 3 lbs and FINALLY start seeing an improvement in my uniform fit. Then came the weekend. My ... Read more

Starting Over, W/ Starting Pics

Friday, September 09, 2011      3 comments

I feel like I'm starting over, but due to a new challenge (thanks to Yoovie) and the tools and base fitness that I've gained in my last year plus at spark, it's not really like starting over, it's just getting back to a place I'm already comfort... Read more

PMP Challenge Starting Line

Wednesday, September 07, 2011      1 comments

Ok, I'm ready to go! This is my first Yoovie challenge and I'm pretty excited and definitely relieved that it seems to be going forward. This challenge perfectly coincides with my next Army PT test, and it's my goal to get my best score ever, ... Read more

Tough August, Looking Forward to September

Friday, September 02, 2011      0 comments

August sucked for me. In lots of ways. Notably- I had to go home to visit my family because my uncle was dying, and I didn't make it in time to see him to say goodbye. He died the day I got in and was in a coma/dying so I couldn't see him. S... Read more

What's Gotten Into Me?

Tuesday, August 16, 2011      1 comments

Ugh, I feel like I've got multiple personalities or something. On one hand- I feel GREAT. I have moments where I convince myself that I'm in the best shape of my life. And there's some evidence to support that. I'm running faster than I ever... Read more

Lately- the Good, the Bad

Monday, August 15, 2011      0 comments

I've been having a fun, busy, stressful, sad, and exciting August! Man, just writing that sentence has me exhausted, I guess it's kind of no wonder I've been all over the place lately. After my very successful July, and finally meeting my over... Read more

Declaring Victory (some pics too!)

Saturday, July 16, 2011      3 comments

It's been a long journey (almost 2 years on Spark, and before that- well, maybe since puberty?), but I think I'm ready to declare victory. There, I said it. I think I'm done. I think I've won the battle and am final comfortable with my body a... Read more

Going strong

Friday, June 24, 2011      0 comments

I haven't blogged in awhile due to being busy at work, and just generally focusing on my goals rather than just writing about them! In this instance, not blogging has been a good thing- usually when I don't blog for awhile it's because I've fal... Read more

The Pay-off

Wednesday, June 15, 2011      0 comments

So, I haven't been blogging much- I've been around the site, and still tracking, but life got in the way a bit, and I just took a step back for about a week or two to re-assess my program and where I was at. Truthfully, where I'd gotten to was ... Read more

Fun new program, day 2!

Monday, May 30, 2011      0 comments

Ok, it's not THAT fun- it's tough!- but I always like to change things up, so I'm doing something new for 30 days. I had a tough second half of March due to some stress at work, horrendous TOM, and then a minor medical procedure that left me a ... Read more
