I have been shopping for a graduation dress. I already have one dress but I need another for some other grad festivities being held. I wear a size 14 but I feel my options are drastically cur... Read more
Day # 14: Body Inspiration
While I'm generally opposed to the idea of "thinspiration" I can't help but post this photo of ballerina Misty Copeland. Her body is everything I want mine to be: shapely, athletic and beautiful.
Healthy Diet Habits
I have entered phase 2 of the Spark Diet for the second time. The first I did it, I hung tough all six weeks and lost around 13 pounds. I am hoping for even better results this time. How am I going to get these results? Well, for one, I'm going... Read more
Day # 13: Results
The scale is trending downward. There is no mystery as to why: I've been eating clean and staying active. Sure, I had two slices of pizza and a slice of cake at my nephew's birthday party on Sunday. And my dinner on Saturday night could have bee... Read more
Blog # 12: May Day
There was beautiful weather today...the last three days, actually. Spring is here and May holds so much promise. We finally decided where we're going for my post-bar exam vacation: RIO DE JANEIRO! It sounds so glamorous, so beautiful, so stimula... Read more

Day # 9: The Anatomy of a Binge
It isn’t pretty. Yesterday, things were going well. I ate clean until after our kickball game. Every Thursday, there’s a food fair on the edge of the park with food trucks, live music, etc.. My friends wanted to check it out. My husband and ... Read more
Day # 8: Still on Cloud 9
Still on Cloud 9 from yesterday--the end of law school followed by a lovely massage at the spa. That was my first massage and I swear, so much anxiety left my body. I feel like I couldn't get mad or nervous or upset even if I wanted to. How long... Read more

Day #5: Taking the Clean Eating Plunge
With a little help from my Sparkfriends, I've decided to take the Clean Eating plunge! The first two days of this week will be sort of modified; I cannot eat grains during Passover so I have omitted them from my menus. Otherwise, I am following ... Read more
Should I Try Clean Eating?

It has proven results
It is a healthy way of eating--not a dangerous crash diet
It requires a lot of preparation and effort ... Read more
Day #4: Inspiring Others
My journey has not been a straight line. I really started on Spark in 2009. Between 2009 and 2010 I lost 30+ lbs. Then I started to backslide. At this point, I have gained back some of the weight and am recommitting to my journey. All of this is... Read more
Day # 3: Making Time for My Health
I have an exam on Wednesday. My usual M.O. would be to totally bury my head in the books and write off any hope of having a healthy week. But today, I'm breaking that cycle.
I started the morning with a walk out over the ocean with my husba... Read more
Day # 2: Life in the Slow Lane
I've gone back to Fast Break and it is going really well. The Spark Diet and "The Spark" book both advocate starting with small goals to build a pattern of success and then adding new skills, goals and activities as you go along. Through the cri... Read more
