Struggling with workouts
I'm having a tough time lately with my workouts... and I know exactly why, but that doesn't make it any easier to deal with.
About a month and a half ago, I started noticing that I was feeling different during my workouts. I was getting ti... Read more

Figuring out Spark Life w/Pregnancy
It was an interesting day to say the least. I woke up and decided to take a pregnancy test. I saw a faint line for the positive line. Hmmmm. So I took another. There was another faint line. I'm starting to freak out a little by this point.... Read more
HUGE apology to my fellow Clovers
I'm sorry, Clovers. I gained weight this week. I am up a pound from last week... and I am terribly disappointed.
I stayed in range... okay. I'm lying about this one. I never can make it up to my range. I am almost always slightly un... Read more

Guess what I just did?
Wanna guess what I just did?
I ran!!! Like, one foot in front of the other, nothing was chasing me, ran.
I stated out for a walk. I laced up my (daughter's) shoes and got the dog leashed up and I headed out the door. I walked a mile... Read more

Using your body to say "NO" (With Picture Progress)
A few years ago, I was in bed reading a Prevention magazine. I was 307 pounds, divorced, single mom and miserable. I was just getting ready to put the magazine down for the night but I flipped the page instead and saw an article about using yo... Read more
I had to admit it to myself
A few weeks ago now, I posted a blog about coffee being the culprit as to why I was not losing weight. Weeeellll... um, uh. Not so much. Now, I'm betting all the coffee (and creamer that went with it) wasn't helping, but I found the real culp... Read more
Well, that was an awful weekend!
The title says it all. This past weekend was not good for the the whole eating thing. Well, I guess that depends on how you look at it. Is your goal to eat as much crap as possible? Then it was a great weekend. Is your goal to eat healthy? ... Read more
Coffee is the culprit???
I don't blog much... only when I need to vent really. I talk to my husband about most everything, but sometimes I just need to see things in writing. It also helps to get other feedback. So here goes:

Yesterday was AWFUL!!! with pic
