One day at a time
I haven't blogged in a really LONG time, but it was time to share some of my success. I found this site in 2011 after weighing in at the doctor's office and realizing how out of control my weight had gotten. After lots of reading and finding e... Read more
I haven't blogged much recently, but I've been here! BLC is amazing... I highly recommend it!
Today I start a new chapter in my weight loss... I'm taking the fitness membership plunge! I have been very hesitant from the start of my jour... Read more
One Year Sparkversary Blog!!!
One year ago, my status on facebook read like this �A year from now, you will wish you had started today�. Boy was I right!
It has officially been 1 year since I decided to change my life.
In the last year, these are a few of th... Read more
50 Pounds Gone!
It's been a while since I've blogged. However, I have officially passed the 50 pounds lost mark! It's exciting! I haven't been working out like I should, which means the weight loss is slower, but I'm happy as long as the pounds keep dropping... Read more
N.E.W. Challenge for BLC
So it's mid training-week for BLC and it's been a little crazy on that team. I'm still not 100% sure this is the challenge for me (so far it seems overwhelming with the way it's organized) and I normally have weekends off for exercise to spend ... Read more
40 isn't enough!
I've been thinking about this blog for the last week, but I wanted to make sure I was serious before I wrote this out! As you may have noticed, I have been less active here on SP. I've still logged in, checked a few blogs, halfheartedly tracked... Read more
Having a hard time getting back into it...
As of today it's been 2 weeks since I have really worked out. Fortunately even with my bad eating on the trip I've lost about 3 pounds in the last 2 weeks, so that's good! The eating healthy had come back pretty easily since being in civilizat... Read more
Holy cow did I just have the most incredible week. It started extra stressful because although I had planned everything down to a "t" MY flight was delayed. This meant that we had less time on the road and my friends had to pick up all the foo... Read more
Last Blog Before Trip!
So Saturday I'm flying to Minneapolis to meet my friends coming from Baltimore and then we rent a car and meet friends from Iowa (including my friend who just got back from Afghanistan!) then we treck 3 hours to a parking area and hike 2.5 miles... Read more
Failed. At least I tried, I guess!
I flopped on week 4 D1. Ok, maybe that's an overstatement, but that's how it feels. Thanks to everyone's great support (and the decision not to go to the pool at my MIL's) I got my get up on and got to the gym. First 3 minute segment went fin... Read more
I..... just don't want to do it anymore!
So I finished C25K week 3 on Friday which means today is the day to start week 4. It's entirely too hot outside, so I need to go to the new gym/indoor track if I'm going to do it. The problem is that I just don't want to! I don't know if it's... Read more
Take that, heat! (A victory blog)
I knew I was in trouble yesterday when at 10 pm it was still super hot and muggy outside. I could either get up at 5am, or figure out something else for my run today. Well... not only did I not get up early, but I slept in! I woke to my phone... Read more
First Progress Pictures!
I happen to be wearing the same outfit as when I took a picture a few weeks back, so I thought today would be a good day to see if I could see any difference in a photo! The picture on the left was taken by my husband in the middle of May, and ... Read more
This morning started out great. I got up before my husband (rare thing here!) made breakfast for our 17 month old and myself and got into my workout clothes. I went for a run/walk for C25K W1 Day 2 and got home and showered before noon. The r... Read more
30 pounds gone, 3 months in, and day 1 of runing!
Well, as you can read in the title, I've officially lost 30 pounds!!! I was very close last week, but I waited until I had comfortably passed the mark. I'm also just past 3 months of this lifestyle change and it is REALLY working. I'm really s... Read more
