Quick touch base on my goals and progress lately: -Ever since I hit my low weight of 150 three years ago I've steadily gained. It's not all been bad, I have much more muscles than I did back then, but I definitely have gained a little not-mus... Read more

It's been a while, and I haven't been very sparky lately - just popping in once a week to check in on my Sapphire sisters. But I'm back! I've done 11 races this year, and in the last 3 months I've done 2 triathlons, 1 half marathon, 1 5k, 1 mu... Read more

So, I spent 2 months not weighing - hoping the lack of stressing over the number on the scale would help. Nope, I gained 3 lbs in 2 months. Ugh. Oh well, back to weighing. I'm getting sad seeing my tracker down there so much lower than I am,... Read more

Hallo Spark

Friday, November 06, 2009      1 comments

It's been a little while, so I figured I'd check in and say "whazzup" or some such. Life is pretty chock full right now but most of it is stuff I love so I can't complain. I am finishing up the 3rd week of the 30 Day Shred. Hooo boy. Jil... Read more

It's been the best of times, it's been the worst of times. Mostly the best though. Yeah, I'm weighing in at 156 today. Again. Yes, that's 1 lb OVER my "oh poop" weight of 155. Not anywhere close to the 140s, or the 139 I had hoped to be... Read more
