The June Plan

Saturday, June 02, 2012      5 comments

Tuesday, April 17, 2012      6 comments

I need help, Sparkfriends. I'm slipping back into the abyss I emerged from not even a month ago. The one filled with depression and feelings of self-hatred and despair. I am not normally one to air my private feelings in public. My cow... Read more

Day 8

Sunday, April 08, 2012      1 comments

I have been fairly good this weekend, considering that Easter candy abounds (just not at my house!) and also that I have been with Eric for two straight days, which can make healthy eating a bit tricky. Food has been (fairly) good - a banan... Read more

Day 5

Thursday, April 05, 2012      2 comments

Just wanted to post a quick blog before I hop off to work. I am ALWAYS in a hurry these days... For the past five days I have been taking (almost) impeccable care of myself. It is showing already both on the scale and on my body. Oh, and my... Read more

Day 1

I'm back, Sparkers! I have taken the last few months to transition myself into health, from watching what foods I eat to slowly incorporating exercise back in, and now my body is pleading for 100% commitment. And I feel like I'm ready! So w... Read more

Small Update

Thursday, January 26, 2012      5 comments

January is going well for me, all things considered. I have been eating well and plugging along at school, and even though I haven't been able to work out regularly, I feel like the eating is enough for now. I haven't been out to each much, and ... Read more

Happy New Year's, friends :) I love January 1st because it is the ultimate new beginning. While it is certainly true that you can start fresh on any day, the first day of a brand new year is special. I had a wonderful New Year's Eve. ... Read more

Oh Dear...

Tuesday, December 13, 2011      7 comments

So while I may be done with being an ostrich, jumping in 100% is a little scary. The 30-day-shred/1200 calories/64+ oz water sets someone like me up for failure. It was a great plan, a plan I wish I could follow through with...but it's too much ... Read more

I'm Done Being An Ostrich

Monday, December 12, 2011      14 comments

That's it! I'm done burying my head in the sand and pretending that I haven't gained back nearly all the weight that I worked hard for over a year to drop. I'm done ignoring the fact that few of my clothes fit and my work scrubs are being stretc... Read more
