Goals: you need them. It's nice to think that you can just decide good things to do for yourself every day, but that isn't always the case. For me it's all about setting and attaining goals. I stopped goal setting and as a result I started... Read more

I don't wanna!

Monday, January 16, 2012      9 comments

Today I had a meltdown. I decided that I was too fat to lose weight, that it was too much work and wasn't worth it. Seriously, almost in tears about being at this weight. The problem is that I gained weight. I went from 185 to 143 and now am at ... Read more

I missed Jazzercise this morning because it was snowing when I woke up. We had already gotten a couple of inches overnight and were expecting more throughout today. I really hate to drive in the rain and the snow so I avoid it if I can. Today I ... Read more

Today is my first day of my first week of healthy living in 2012. Yes, I realize the New Year is a week old and that if I was a good at Sparking as I pretend to be it wouldn't be a first anything for me today. Sometimes you get off track, but th... Read more

2011 Review

Friday, January 06, 2012      4 comments

2011 was a great year of fabulous progress, some regression, some good news and some bad. I started SparkPeople in November 2010, working on my New Year's resolutions, knowing that starting early would give me a better chance of succeeding. ... Read more

Just Keep Swimming

Wednesday, December 21, 2011      2 comments

We are moved in and settled. There are boxes I will never unpack because I don't have any more room in this tiny house for more stuff. I love how simple it keeps our lives. It's also very easy to clean a tiny house! I started back to Jazze... Read more

Howdy from Colorado

We have moved! Although it took almost 3 weeks of living in hotels to get into the house due to paperwork issues with our mortgage company, we are so happy to be in our new home in Colorado. It's been interesting figuring out where everything sh... Read more

My Current State of Spark

Wednesday, September 28, 2011      5 comments

I have been sparking now for almost year. At the beginning I was obsessed and logged every morsel and counted every exercise. My current state of Spark is much less attentive. I still log in every day. I spin the wheel, read through everything i... Read more

Last week my DH and I took a vacation to Colorado. We went for two reasons; escape the heat of Texas and remember why we want to move there so badly. We spent the week enjoying the weather and sights. We camped in Rocky Mountain National Park on... Read more

Fashion Woes

Tuesday, August 09, 2011      5 comments

Today I watched too many of those fashion shows on TLC and started getting grand ideas of fashion and glamour. I am really not a girly, girl or that into fashion until I start watching these shows. I mean, they make frumpy girls look fabulous. I... Read more

Today's Doctor Visit

Monday, August 08, 2011      9 comments

When I hit 145 last week, I scheduled a check in appointment with my doctor with the intention of getting off blood pressure medicine. My blood pressure was 108/70 today (medicated) and it has been around there for a few months now. She agreed t... Read more

I love that SparkPeople gives you the option to track other nutrients besides the basics. I wish I could see them on the mobile app too, but it's so awesome nonetheless. I have been tracking my sodium for a while now and I really think the... Read more

Thursday, August 04, 2011      5 comments

So it's been FOR---EVVVVVERRRRRRRRR since my last weight loss. Okay really it's only been a couple of weeks, but it's frustrating nonetheless. I want to hit 145 so badly I can hardly stand it. It's just a random number on the scale, I know, but ... Read more

Spreading the Spark has always been part of my process here. I've always attributed my success thus far with Jazzercise and SparkPeople. I encourage people who are serious about weight loss to join SparkPeople and offer to help them reach their ... Read more

You're right that is an odd title for a blog entry. Certainly it caught your attention and you just couldn't wait to read what odd combination of products I would be discussing. It's just two ways I have started looking at my weight loss. ... Read more
