Ok, I have had 4 days of pity party and withdrawing from SP, so it's time to get back on track and post some goals for the month. But first a recap of last month.
My goals last month were to not go for perfection, and not throw the carton of... Read more
As the Turkey Stuffer 5K is fast approaching, I have been reflecting on my journey these past two years. Two years ago if someone would have asked me if I would be interested in doing a 5K I would have laughed in their face, especially since I... Read more
Disclaimer: This is a post for me to vent and try to sort out some thoughts, so sorry if you're reading and it seems confusing.
So yesterday was a planned day of rest. I got up, did my spark stuff and was thinking about taking the dogs for... Read more
Nutrition Tracker linked with Fitness??? Is anyone using it?
Yesterday i decided I REALLY needed carbs. lol. My go to crave food is either chocolate, or bread. Yes, I'm kind of a bread-a-holic. So last night I decided I was going to feed my craving by having soup (SP acorn/broccoli soup) and some crisp... Read more

My exercise commitment for the Fall 5% Challenge is
1. Walk at least 15 miles a week
2. Complete the SP 5K Walk/Jog program so I can jog the Turkey Trot
3. Complete 2000 fitness minutes each month
My nutrition commitment for the F... Read more
Time for me to get some goals down on paper (lol). Last month was the first month is quite awhile I didn't gain weight. I'm not real happy with the 2.5 lb loss, but it is still better than a gain. To assure I have a better month this month, I ... Read more
Today is a New Day
I am back and starting again. How I hate to say that over and over. I have that card up in my house that says if you're tired of starting over, quit stopping, yet I stop over and over again.
I started this journey two years ago this month.... Read more
A great way to start over
I think the biggest reason I have been struggling to stay on track is I keep comparing where I am to where I was, then I feel defeated and give up. As my aunt says, when I drop an egg, I just throw the rest of the carton on the floor to... Read more
Trying to find my MOJO again
Yesterday I got up with intentions of going for a walk, but the day before when I got back from my walk and was stretching I messed up my back pretty bad. Yesterday i could hardly get out of bed, so going for a walk didn't happen. I thought I ... Read more
Day one, for the last time.
Amazing how much can change in just three days. Not sure how it all started, but I think the number on the scale going up a few ounces had something to do with it. Then I needed to go grocery shopping so decided to go out to eat first,... Read more
Day Seven of the restart
Today will make it one week I've been back on my journey. Not real happy with the scale today, but I did have a bit more sodium that I should have. My carbs were higher than normal but still within range, so not really sure what is go... Read more
Day Six of the restart
I'm still loving this one to two pounds a day loss. What's funny is that I'm completely amazed by it because I'm not working that hard at it. The last few days I've gotten in short walks with the dogs so I've gotten my sweat on, but no... Read more
Day FIVE (woo hoo) of the restart
I'm so happy to be out of the 260s. Had a very good day yesterday. Stayed within my calorie range, no binge, and got in some fitness time. I know I'm not going to continue to see a pound or more a day come off. I know right now my b... Read more
Day FOUR of the restart
Bad part of yesterday, I went WAY TOO LONG without eating. I didn't get my water in until the end of the day, and I ate almost 2/3 of my calories at dinner.
The good, I met all three goals.
Today I have already filled in most of my... Read more
Day THREE of the restart
Mixed feelings today. On one hand I'm really down, because the scale is up, and I went on a bit of a binge last night after hubby went to bed. (I should have gone too) On the other hand though, I met all three of my goals. Even though... Read more
