I'm still blogging over on blogger instead of here, but when I think about it, I'll try to remember to post a link here as well. mokedddd.blogspot.com/20 14/01/welcome-2014-im-read y-for-you.html ... Read more
I have another blog site where I write about stuff not 100% related to my fitness goals. Tonight I wrote about my progress with the C25K program and my relationship. If anyone's interested, you can follow me there too: mokedddd.blogspo... Read more
I'm going to do a quick blog post to distract myself from the fact that I'm still kind of hungry. I had a skinny margarita, tortilla chips, salsa, bean dip, guacamole, and some kind of spinach and cheese dip thing around 3 p.m. with a girlfrien... Read more
But that's ok. I'm talking about the 70,000 steps per week goal that I sort of made for myself on Tuesday of this week after having a really active Sunday and Monday. I'm going to finish up around 63,000 though, and that's not too shabby! I w... Read more
It's no secret that I have a competitive spirit and that I often challenge myself. Well, I managed to finish Sunday with around 9,000 steps, and yesterday with over 12,000. Without actually saying it out loud or writing it down, I decided I ha... Read more
Wow - that was a weird phrase to write, but it's true, I'm actually happy today and it's Monday! And no, I'm not super hopped up on coffee. I haven't had any coffee all day!

I really will blog again soon. I have a few things that I want to write about, but I'm tired. So, I'm not going to make it happen tonight. Still, I know that my blogging history has shown that I will be on here daily for a while and then I di... Read more
I don't know about you, but this week just flew by me. I can't believe it's already Friday night. First off, major kudos to law enforcement folks in Boston and first responders in West Texas. God bless. I was glued to the tv footage and my t... Read more
I have tracked my food every day this week and am feeling pretty proud of myself. I think my calorie range is a little too low based on my activity level, but I'm going to stay close to it for a week or two and see how things go. SP suggests m... Read more
Ok, I fell asleep while watching last night's Castle at around 7:15 p.m. tonight. I'm taking it as a sign that I am really tired and need sleep more than exercise. I did, however, make it to Walmart tonight and bought 3 new pairs of workout pa... Read more
This is not a mirage. I'm really here, two days in a row. I have such renewed enthusiasm for sparkpeople and am so thankful that I have been so quickly embraced as a wayward but returning wanderer! Thanks to all who sent me a note of encoura... Read more
This is a duplicate of what's in the introduction of my sparkpage, but I think it says where I am pretty well and it's a good start:
I can't believe it's been over 2 years since I've updated my goals and sparkpage. I have been off on my ow... Read more
Ok, I'm back with my KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) Plan:
1. Eat whole foods as much as possible.
2. Avoid packaged foods and refined carbs.
3. Cook my meals more often and limit eating out. And if I eat out - aim for lean meats an... Read more
