So, I weighed in this morning for my 30 day detox and it was NOT pretty. Of the 27lbs last year I appear to have gained 19 of them back since February! WHAT?! How is that even possible? I suppose I've been living in denial that the garbage I pu... Read more
30 Days to Healthy Living
I seem to have slipped back into some bad habits lately that have made my weight spike up about 10lbs. No good. So, tomorrow I'm going to do a 30 day detox to help rid my body of the garbage and cravings for garbage. Tomorrow I'm going sugar, ... Read more
Happy Hump day!
Wilson came down with a wicked cold yesterday which means we were homebound the whole day. That totally shot my chances of going to the Y. Bummer! But ... Read more
I haven't been posting or even checking in to Spark but that doesn't mean that I haven't been working!
In January I participated in my 2nd 30 Days to Healthy Living challenge with Arbonne and dropped 16.9lbs! I gained a bit back during Feb... Read more

I've always been super lazy when it comes to working out - I vowed to do Jillian Michael's ... Read more
30 Days to Healthy Living Day 5
On Monday I started 30 Days to Healthy Living and Beyond and went gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and alcohol free. ME - the carboholic wino that I am. It's been a SERIOUS adjustment but it hasn't been bad. Well, not all bad ;)
Along with giving ... Read more
Happy Friday! Let's Catch Up!
It's been a long time since I posted, huh?
Don't despair, I haven't totally fallen off the wagon. I've still been tracking my calories (for the most part) and walking (almost) every day. I've just had a lot going on and haven't had a whole ... Read more
Not trusting my eyes - trusting the scale
The food scale, that is. I FINALLY stopped eyeballing my food and I feel like it is making such a big difference!
I'm also using my handy measuring cups and spoons. Because, honestly? I have NO idea what 1/3 of a cup of cheese looks lik... Read more
Birthday calories don't count, right?
Friday was my birthday - I'm 32 years old now. Yikes! How did that happen?
I had delicious tacos, and margaritas, and beers, and flan, and chocolate cake, and it was glorious. And it was roughly a 3,000 day. Oops.
Yesterday I went to a pa... Read more
I finally figured out how to track my mileage (I know, it wasn't difficult I'm just a dumbass)
I've walked 25 miles since I started tracking! I'm pumped. I really want to walk more but the baby gets antsy and angry at about 3 miles. Maybe we... Read more
How to stay motivated in a "no loss" week?
Saturday is my weigh in day. I've been almost looking forward to them this go round. I've been seeing such admirable (sometimes even remarkable) weight loss each week. This week, not so much. This week I GAINED .4lbs. UGH.
This makes m... Read more
AM vs PM exercising.
The goose and I usually take our walks in the morning between 9-10. It's still fairly cool, we can get it out of the way early, and we have the afternoons when he wakes up from his nap to do fun things. Today I was not that good. I was extra ... Read more
These jeans feel a bit roomy!
Seriously, though. I think I'm starting to FEEL the weight loss. I'm down 12lbs since the last time I weighed myself "pre-California" and down 9 since I started tracking with Spark. I feel awesome. I'm walking every day and I'm being super mi... Read more
Eat to live - don't live to eat?
This will just never be my motto. Noah and I LOVE to cook and LOVE to eat. And I'm totally OK with that! I can enjoy food and live a healthy lifestyle. The two are NOT mutually exclusive. I hate that people would make you think otherwise.

It's a darn shame there are so many calories in bread
Because, really? It's so damn delicious. I mean, there's little that is more delicious than toasty warm bread with butter. Drool.
BUT! It's not always worth it.
Good thing I really like fruit and veggies, right?
But seriously,... Read more
