Why am I not tracking?
Monday, September 25, 2017      2 comments

No motivation! Well, I do have some motivation, but not enough to do everything it takes to get thinner and healthier. I haven't been logging in because I keep saying to myself "I don't care anymore". But the truth is I do care. I am not at ... Read more
No more yoga?
Wednesday, June 07, 2017      5 comments

My yoga studio closed. The couple who opened the studio are facing difficulties in the form of cancer treatments, and can't handle everything a new business requires. Our class packages are going to be honored by another yoga studio which show... Read more
Updating my goals
Friday, May 26, 2017      3 comments

I have been on SparkPeople for 5 years now. It's been a recent surprise to realize that the goals I set change over time. I expected that goals set based on my values would stay the same, since my values really don't change. But life happens ... Read more
Challenge to Focus on the Positive
Monday, May 15, 2017      5 comments

The SparkCoach challenge today was to list at least 3 recent accomplishments I am proud of. This is difficult because I'm feeling less than proud because I got laid off last October and haven't been able to get a full time job yet. On th... Read more
SparkCoach advice taken - re-evaluate
Thursday, March 16, 2017      1 comments

I have been visiting my SparkCoach every day and most of the time it's a repeat of something I've already learned over the last few years on SparkPeople. I also joined the Plateau Busting Challenge because I don't seem to be making any progress... Read more
Benefits of packing lunches
Saturday, March 11, 2017      1 comments

My husband packs my lunch everyday. I used to pack lunches but now he's taken over. Anyway, I don't always eat everything, and if it's like pretzels or breakfast bars I will keep them in my desk just in case I get extra hungry another day. I ... Read more
Progress after 30 days of yoga
Monday, February 06, 2017      3 comments

I was very excited after yoga class last week! We were getting ready to do a boat pose (where you lay on your stomach, bend your knees so your feet are trying to reach your behind, and you grab your ankles with your hands). I didn't realize wh... Read more
Spark Summary Averages
Friday, January 27, 2017      1 comments

I just found the Spark Summary Calendar. I love the gold stars! My weight has been holding steady at 184.5 or so. I calculated my calories and I have averaged 1600 a day for the past 5 weeks. Now that I know that, I will shoot for no m... Read more
Yoga continued...
Thursday, January 19, 2017      2 comments

We continue to go to yoga when we can work it into our schedule. We have taken 4 classes so far. Last Friday we tried a Yin Yoga class, which is basically holding different stretching poses for about 5 minutes or so at a time. They were some ... Read more
Our First Yoga Class
Tuesday, January 10, 2017      6 comments

I am getting older, and along with that I am less flexible and not as strong as I used to be. I hate the feeling of the stiffness and have thought for a long time that yoga would be a good option. We already walk on a regular basis and have do... Read more
Feeling fat
Friday, June 24, 2016      5 comments

I feel so terrible and so fat! I am so disappointed in myself today. Usually I can pull up my britches and say "just do what you did before, you know what to do" but lately I can't keep the momentum past 5:00! I'm not eating like crazy, but ... Read more
List of non-scale victories
Wednesday, June 15, 2016      2 comments

I have joined the plateau busting challenge as a way to try to get myself back in control. Too much snacking and too little exercise has the weight creeping back on and that is unacceptable. For day 3 of the challenge I am supposed to list... Read more
It's not just about weight
Wednesday, January 20, 2016      1 comments

A few weeks ago I went back and read The Spark all the way through again. This time I was looking for ways to improve my life, not just my weight or my diet. So much on this website will work in areas of life that aren't just about food and ex... Read more
SparkGuy's Ultimate Life Challenge
Wednesday, December 23, 2015      2 comments

You must have seen SparGuys emails and blogs about the Ultimate Spark Life Challenge. So far I'm finding the rules to be a bit loose, but it's definitely got me thinking and motivated! I was feeling a little like I was just reacting to life an... Read more
Motivation at Goodwill?
Wednesday, September 23, 2015      3 comments

I went to Goodwill to get some pants on Friday night, and I have been SUPER MOTIVATED ever since! I was getting lazy about portion control, tracking calories, and exercise, and I really didn't care. I gained back about 20 pounds from my lowest... Read more
