I have had probably one of the worst food weeks, at least in the few years, this week. Ironically, it's due to the way I handled my dad having major heart surgery this week. I have not been this stressed in a while. I have successfully stopped ... Read more
2012 Fitness Minutes
Since SP started its SparkAmerica campaign, I haven't adjusted my goal of 9000 yearly minutes (nor have I completed that goal. . .). I was just thinking about adjusting it, mainly based on how much I think I would earn with just derby practice.... Read more
Recovering from Injury
That was April 19, three days after my last post, and 2 days after my first roller derby bout. The injury didn't happen during the bout, but at practice. Talk about a good e... Read more
Goings-on in BrysonLand
What a couple of months this has been. I have been absent from SP for a while, but that doesn't mean I've been slacking. At least, not when it comes to exercise.
I attended my first roller derby practice on March 1, and it is one of the h... Read more
So, February was a little rough Spark-wise. I don't know if it's doldrums that I've heard about, or that I'm burned out at work, but it was not the most healthy month I've had. I did get 400+ fitness minutes in, but I didn't track my food very... Read more
Since December 30
**I had started a great entry, and lost it. I hate when that happens.**
It's been just over a month since we bought the Wii Fit and I started over again. I've been thinking about my goals and weight loss journey a lot this month.

Maybe I should have just eaten a cookie....
I was so proud of myself at work today. I avoided the snacks and sodas at the long faculty meeting.
However, I succumbed to cravings later the evening. I'm still dealing with constant hunger, and tonight I just caved.
But I made myse... Read more
... without a doubt has to be tea. Good old southern sweet tea.
And today, when combining Friday, cold weather and hunger, my husband and I decided to eat out. I didn't fee... Read more
Resetting my weight based on the Wii Fit
So we got a Wii Fit today. I've really been enjoying using the system for getting exercise (though I forget to post it because I don't keep track of my minutes while playing).
When I stepped on the Wii Fit, I was unhappy about how far off ... Read more
Buying a House
So, as my status has read for several days now, my husband and I are in the process of buying a house. The excitement of this combined with ending my fourth school year with CHS has left me less than sparkling the last few weeks. I haven't bee... Read more
Taking Time to Heal
When I was in high school, I injured my wrist trying to swing dance. I never got it checked out, and it bothered me when I would practice with the drumline. That was in 1998. I still have problems with my wrists, and every time it hurts, I wa... Read more
The best bad decision I've made in a while
We all get cravings from time to time, am I right? My latest craving was for a chicken strip meal from Whataburger. I have, for the most part, cut meat completely out of my diet, and am trying to become a full fledged vegetarian. However, afte... Read more
First 10% Gone
It's official. My weigh in today finally tipped the scale (pun intended) over my first 10% milestone.

Today, with a lot of help from my mom, I planted a nice little vegetable garden. Since I am an apartment dweller, all of my plants are in pots, and pretty soon my porch will run... Read more
