Good week. Rough morning.
Weekend is here. Time to relax. NOPE! Thank you car for making it to the weekend and then to the auto shop before dying. Same shop I went to for another major repair a month ago, so the manager is cutting me a deal. THANK YOU!!! ... Read more
Not a bad day/Gym trainer still a jerk
Work passed relatively quick today. Got a good 30 minute walk in at the gym
DISPITE the assessment train... Read more
Today was a very frustrating day. I don't know what's gotten into my sweet Little Miss, but I'm hoping it leaves soon. The whole day was filled with baby screaming, fighting, "don't do that," "no... No... NO!" and "it's time for timeout." Add... Read more
So, today was my health assessment at my new gym. SUPPOSED to be anyway. My trainer bailed! I just couldn't believe it! I did try to make the most of it...I went up to an elliptical and started peddling. ~Whew~ I am far more out of shape th... Read more
One Day Closer
Tomorrow is my start-up consultation at my newly found gym. I'm super excited. Today I was playing around with different options for how I want to spend my time at the gym. Of course, after my consultation I'll likely have a better idea of wh... Read more
A gym named YouFit just opened across the street from my apartment about 2 months ago. I keep saying "I should looking into joining that place," and "I think joining the gym would be a good idea." Well I'm done saying things. I signed up toda... Read more
Ready Again...This Time with Support
I've been suffering from no motivation, low energy, low self-esteem, and an emotional roller coaster.
I've been on Spark People before, but never really had support in person. Online support alone just wasn't enough for me. I'm now living... Read more
My husband made cookies over the weekend and, apparently, temptation is my huge downfall. I've been working hard at exercising, but my nutrition has just been non-existent.
So now... I have something new to work on. I know temptation i... Read more
Like Riding a Bike
Up until a few days ago I had my bike in storage. Last week, I needed to run to the store and my car won't start. So, I borrowed my mom's bike and set out. I realized (1) how much I loved to ride and (2) how badly out of shape I am. It only ... Read more
All about the baby
My baby girl has been acting out lately and my husband brought up a very good point. Over the last couple of weeks we've been putting her down more. Normally, we'd play with her on our laps or let her sit next to us in a chair. Lately, we've ... Read more
I don't know what it is today. I woke up and everything just went down from there. I feel like my baby girl doesn't like me (which is ridiculous!), everything my husband said only put me down more (even though he was trying to cheer me up), an... Read more
I sparked my family!
Up until this point, I have done my workouts by myself. My family is always talking about working out together, but it just never happens. So, I started doing my own thing. After all, I'm responsible for me and my success. Today, I didn't ge... Read more
Still Sick and Going Crazy
It figures the week after I start working to get health I get sick. That's a terrible joke, Universe!
I've been sick for 5 days now. I did try exercising through it on Friday. It was a bad idea I discovered. Saturday and Sunday I did "a... Read more
Nothing to do with with exercise
I know that Spark is mainly for exercise and diet. But today I've got something of the emotional fitness subject to talk about.
Two days ago I heard from my dad in the first time in 20 years! It's strange, but I had almost hesitation to r... Read more
Walked over 1.5 miles with my family today. It was really hard to do as it started getting hotter in the afternoon, but it was totally worth every second! Not only did we have a blast, but I burned almost 200 calories in the process. Effortle... Read more
