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
Saturday, December 31, 2011      4 comments

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

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

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
Newest Goals
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      4 comments

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. I... Read more

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
Wednesday, December 30, 2009      5 comments

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
Monday, May 25, 2009      3 comments

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
Saturday, May 09, 2009      4 comments

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

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
