I've been looking at my old blogs from when I first started using SparkPeople. I'm happy about how far I have come. Since 2007 I have become more fit, more patient, more able to deal with stress, stronger, happier, more chill, to name a few. ... Read more

Monday, December 26, 2016      3 comments

We made it through Christmas without going overboard. Well, almost anyhow. We did eat out more often than we planned but it's so much fun hanging out and spending time together. The good thing is we ate well, the bad thing is we went over on t... Read more

To a great Sunday!

Today has been a good day! We have figured out a training schedule and plan as well as a meal plan. This is something that is really hard for me. I feel like when it comes to healthy meals I am a bit dyslexic. But we are getting through it. ... Read more

I own the Fitbit One and the Samsung Gear Fit 2. I will start with what I love, my Fitbit! I have used a Fitbit since 2009 or 2010 I don't quite remember. I've only used the kind you can attach to your belt buckle or put in your pocket. As mu... Read more

We love football in our house. Well two out of three isn't bad but you can't really expect a 19 year old college girl to love football, but she likes it. We root for the Packers, Steelers and Seahawks in our house. This year we are going to ad... Read more

Thursday, January 01, 2015      4 comments

I'm really excited for 2015. As some have probably read in other blogs or posts 2014 was a horrible year for our family. I guess in 47 years on earth and 25 years with my husband one year in the grand scheme of things is not too awfully bad. ... Read more
