Monday we saw temps in the 50s! I know, those of you who may be reading from the southern states share my cousin's sentiment of "50 degrees is NOT warm. It is 80 degrees here today. That is warm." I beg to differ. For those of us that lived in M... Read more

the more they stay the same. So I am writing this blog in utter frustration. Over the past several weeks it dosn't seem to matter what I do eat or don't eat. No change, movement, no nothing. I know I need to get more active, but what gives... Read more

I apologize in advance for this post. It is pretty much me just saying not nice things, and I don't like that. But where else can a person say those things if not on Spark. So I mentioned that my goals revolved a bit around losing 5 pounds... Read more
A step for accountability
Thursday, February 13, 2014      4 comments

So, Ive been on SP more the past few days, but not doing great. I find it tough to access much on my iPad (I refuse to pay for the app), so I log in and log stuff when I can. What I am doing again is taking an actual step to accountability... Read more

I came back today to check in and re-read my list of goals. So far I have stuck to my meal planning. One slight detour, but no veering and mostly staying right on track. I have been for a walk every day with my daughter. We walk for ... Read more

Life is full of challenges, right? And it isn't always about winning, but about making progress and learning something. These things set us up for more success. This past week a classmate of mine passed away. He was 35. He had a wife and t... Read more
A little step is kinda huge right now
Friday, September 27, 2013      4 comments

Today I ate a lot of extra not so great food. The bright side of today is that I went for a walk with my daughter. I don't know if pushing a 10# stroller with a 12# baby counts for burning extra calories than just the walk, but it doesn't matter... Read more

Tuesday, August 13, 2013      2 comments

It has taken me a few weeks (or a month and a half) to get back and write a blog. I have been hit or miss on logging in and being active. I can blame being a new mom, or I can admit that the biggest issue has been lack of motivation. Yesterday I... Read more

Gotta be honest with you (and myself)
Friday, May 31, 2013      2 comments

My mind started thinking about blogging today and I kind of got into a "here are all the things that are frustrating" sort of funk. I decided to go for a walk, outside. That simple act changed my funk a bit. For those of you not in Minnes... Read more
