Hiatus over!

Saturday, February 08, 2014      1 comments

So, my husband put a challenge to me near the end of last month: like the way I look in a bikini by my birthday (in July) or at the very least be able to remove my wedding ring (which I haven't been able to do since 6 less than months after my w... Read more

Breaking the shackles

Wednesday, July 17, 2013      0 comments

I've bounced back and forth with using SparkPeople for a while now (clearly!), and I've put some thought into why that could be. After pondering for a while I've come to realize something about my Spark experience: it becomes a chore. Tracking f... Read more

Lessons Learned

Monday, June 17, 2013      1 comments

Wow! It's been quite some time since my last blog. I learned a lesson over the weekend. A couple, actually. I figured I'd share them here. Lesson 1) This lesson is sort of a relearning of a lesson I already knew. My husband and I are quit... Read more

What Motivates Me

Saturday, February 23, 2013      0 comments

I've been thinking recently about what motivates me. What really moves me to do something. There's what motivates me to work, clean my house, things like that. I have to do those. There's nothing really telling me that I have to work out or eat ... Read more

4 Days in Review

Monday, February 18, 2013      1 comments

It's been about 4 days since I really tracked everything here on SparkPeople and really paid attention to what I was doing and eating on those days. I also haven't really excercised much in that span on time. I figured it would be a good idea to... Read more

Right back on track!

Monday, February 11, 2013      1 comments

I was horrible over the weekend. Takeout chinese, pizza, alcohol, mini pretzel dogs, a party with chips and popcorn and all the essentials. I gained 4 or more pounds in one day. Saturday was not my strongest day. But I got a lot of walking in on... Read more

More New Things!

Thursday, February 07, 2013      4 comments

I've read so many articles here on SparkPeople it's ridiculous. Some of them aren't the most helpful, and only succeed at increasing my SparkPoints. Some of them are more helpful, and give me the opportunity to try new techniques for losing weig... Read more

Comfort Foods...

Tuesday, February 05, 2013      3 comments

Yesterday I had a horribly stressful day at work. It made me not want to eat all day. When I got out of work, I knew I had to spend much of my evening working on homework, and I didn't feel much like cooking anyway. I ended up purchasing (and su... Read more

Priorities and my Cheat Day

Friday, February 01, 2013      0 comments

So, my plans for the month involved exercising every day. Unfortunately, last night I was unable to. As much as getting healthy and losing weight is a priority of mine, my homework is more of a priority, so instead of doing yoga and cardio, I sp... Read more

5 Minute Turn-Around, Motivator Me, and a New Plan!

Thursday, January 31, 2013      2 comments

This week was sucking. No energy. Feeling weird. Over on my calories every day. This week was downright awful. I needed something. Something that would turn this crappy week around and make it something positive. I looked all over for the motiva... Read more

Over and Over again

Wednesday, January 30, 2013      0 comments

I've not been having the best week. I've been feeling mildly ill in odd ways all week. It's not been simple things, like a runny nose or a scratchy throat. It has been things like dizziness, queasiness, headaches, and occasional tightness in my ... Read more

The Best Laid Plans...

Monday, January 28, 2013      0 comments

It turns out that the old saying is correct. My plans for the weekend went horribly astray. Here's how the weekend went down: I woke up on Saturday, did my weekly weigh-in, and hopped on SparkPeople. I recorded everything I had missed from ... Read more

My Mantra (5 minutes)

Thursday, January 24, 2013      2 comments

Finding motivation isn't always the easiest thing. I know this. Sometimes what motivates you one day doesn't work the next. Sometimes something that should motivate you doesn't work at all. Finding the right motivation is a challenge in and of i... Read more

I ate Chipotle today for the first time in quite a while. I had only eaten a yogurt before that, and it's a good thing I did! One bowl gave me pretty much everything I needed for the day. I am still within my calorie range. However, I felt so fu... Read more
