I know my last blog had a really down-trodden feel. I was feeling a bit helpless and alone, and even though i didn't respond, I'm really thankful for all the support I received from my Sparkfriends. Unfortunately, I slipped back into the same da... Read more

I had a wonderful New Year's Eve. ... Read more
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
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
#1: I am oh-so-proud of myself for doing back to back runs last night and this morning. Last night I ran along the river on the wonderful Animas trail in 86-degree weather at dusk, passing strolling couples and tourists eating on restaurant pati... Read more
