The year so far

Friday, February 27, 2015      3 comments

To say 2015 has been difficult is too kind. It's not been a particularly good year for me so far. I know it's only the end of February but when I think where I was a year ago at this time compared to where I am now, it's pathetic. I've be... Read more

Thoughts on Two Years of Sparking

Saturday, February 01, 2014      6 comments

So on Sparkcoach today, the challenge was to really think about all the changes I've made over the last two years (since I joined Spark). That got me thinking - what has changed? My weight has changed. I started at 189 pounds (although ... Read more

Easy does it

Saturday, August 10, 2013      5 comments

I would live to say here that things are going great and I'm feeling strong and healthy. But that's just not the case yet. It's amazing how two and a half weeks of doing nothing quickly diminishes my stamina and strength. It's only been a lit... Read more
