A couple recent revelations

Wednesday, September 14, 2011      6 comments

Since I finally hit another mini weight loss goal and updated my tracker on my spark page, (which felt like took forever by the way:) I have just realized that I have completed 9 of 12 of these goals! Something to celebrate. I've had to forgiv... Read more

Just checking back in after an SP hiatus

Sunday, September 04, 2011      4 comments

I can't believe it's been since April the last time I posted a blog entry. Well- no worries- I haven't fallen "off the wagon" or anything. I have just been busy with life. I have been feeling guilty for a while, because I haven't checked in ... Read more

Does the Success of others Inspire and Intimdate at the Same Time?

Friday, April 15, 2011      4 comments

Do you ever look see another person as a great inspiration while at the same time, his or her progress overwhelms you and makes you feel like you couldn't possibly make those kinds of strides? As someone who has tackled this journey of weig... Read more

Monday, April 11, 2011      3 comments

Ran my third road race over the weekend. My time increased by about 1 min from the last 5K. This one had some small hills in the course, and the other one was level. It was also quite a bit warmer-72 degrees during the race. I am discovering... Read more

I'm so proud of myself. I ran almost all of the 5K I participated in on Sat, March 12! I improved my pace from the last race I ran in too!! My kids were there, and it made me so happy that they were there to see me finish! My boyfriend ha... Read more

Monday, March 07, 2011      3 comments

I had the best weekend with two of my girlfriends. We went on a shopping trip and found some really great resale shops in a city about two hours from home! Got myself some rewards! I (after 2 years of deliberating) treated myself to a Kindle,... Read more

Just a few pounds away from half-way goal!

Saturday, February 26, 2011      1 comments

I am just amazed by my progress. I only have 2.6 pounds to lose until I have lost 54 pounds- half my 108 pound goal! I haven't been this close to my healthy, ideal weight in at least 10 years. It's probably more like 15, but there is a time b... Read more

Seriously, go away 200!!

Saturday, February 12, 2011      4 comments

Still bouncing back and forth between 199 and 200. It's been like 3 weeks now! I'm so glad I started tracking measurements too. My waist is down .5 and my hips down .75 since I've been hanging onto 200. I'm not hanging on tightly though:-) ... Read more

Thursday, February 10, 2011      4 comments

I completed day 1 of week 5 yesterday after work. It was hard, and I know my pace was slow, but I'm so proud of myself for getting it done. My foot gave me a little trouble when I was almost finished. I'm a little worried about it- I hope tha... Read more

Week 4 C25K training complete

Wednesday, February 09, 2011      3 comments

I kind of fell behind on my updates on this- Between being sick during week 3 and switching my schedule and the big snow that disrupted week 4, I still managed to keep plugging along. Day 2 of week 4 was the race that I competed in- although... Read more

Ran my first race!

Monday, February 07, 2011      11 comments

Ran my first race on Saturday! It was 4 miles, and I did it in intervals of walking and running, because I'm not ready to run the whole thing yet. It was a fantastic day- snow and all. Finished it in under an hour- that was my ultimate goal! ... Read more

The Spark: Chapter 2: Focus

Friday, February 04, 2011      1 comments

Even though I had worked through some basic goals in my head, I hadn't actually written them down yet. Now that I have them on paper, it's easier to visualize and stay on track. I have started with 3, but I have begun jotting down notes on dev... Read more

My Story/Reflection on Chapter 1 The Spark

Wednesday, January 26, 2011      7 comments

It's unbelievable that I am almost halfway to my goal. It feels like I need to write down my story. Even though I have mentioned little blurbs here and there in responses of the moment, I have yet to sit down and recount it all. After all- we... Read more

Had to take a break from running today- sick day

Wednesday, January 26, 2011      2 comments

I had to postpone today's run. I wasn't feeling well today. I can't believe how assertive I had to stay with myself today about allowing myself to take a day off without bully-ing myself for it. I kept having feelings of guilt start to creep ... Read more

Monday, January 24, 2011      1 comments

Today was much warmer than it was on Friday! I'm not sure what the temp was, but it was probably around 30. Compared to 6,, it was a heat wave. I had a great run. I got farther than I expected to. I had found some Cuddl Duds long underwear ... Read more
