8 May 2012 - Starting Over
Tuesday, May 08, 2012      4 comments

Well, I feel like I am starting over. I have been pretty poor at tracking since the holidays - and now it's May! A lot of it stems from re-injuring my back in December. I feel like I haven't been myself since. I am afraid to get back i... Read more
October was So-SO
Tuesday, November 01, 2011      1 comments

I made 3 goals for myself in October: Goal 1: Stick with tracking everything I eat through Sparkpeople Monday-Friday throughout October. ****UPDATE**** I did OK with this, but not great. I did better for Breakfast and Lunch, but dinne... Read more
Always, Sometimes, Nevers
Friday, October 21, 2011      0 comments

A comment on my last blog post made me think about my SP Diet. I am still actively trying to lose weight (and I have been!) so, I still consider myself on a diet--rather than just maintaining my health, fitness, weight, etc. Part of wh... Read more
The Derby 15

When someone joins roller derby, they do it for all kinds of reasons. Make new (female) friends, be active, they miss team sports, they want to be part of something, they saw a bout/Whip It/Heard someone on the train and are already in love with... Read more

Tuesday, October 04, 2011      1 comments

OK, I have updated my weight loss goal-to lose 22 pounds by the end of the year. I am a bit worried about having this goal go through the holiday season-but I think Sparkpeople has armed me with the tools to make good decisions and not be r... Read more

Where is the motivation?
Monday, September 19, 2011      5 comments

OK, i am not done. I am not ready to say this is where I want to be. So, why I have lost all motivation for SparkPeople, for exercise and for eating well? I need to stop being my own roadblock. I have lost 40lbs. I don't want to take a... Read more
Back in Action...
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      1 comments

OK-so since the last blog entry I have been pretty much ignoring SparkPeople. I don't think I have gained weight--though I have been indulging more than I should. I have about 15 lbs to make it to my next goal and 25lbs before I decide... Read more
Jinxed It
Tuesday, August 16, 2011      1 comments

I am back from a fantastic weeklong vacation at the OBX. I didn't track my food--probably drank too much--but didn't go overboard either. I think my weight stayed the same--but I am giving my self one more week off the scale just in case! I... Read more
I'm No Hater
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      1 comments

Yesterday--someone came up to me and said "You look different, not better--just different." She went on to ask me if it was on purpose--if I was happy. And like any good derby girl--if I can tell the difference in my skating. This got... Read more
A Week Later and Some Perspective
Friday, July 22, 2011      4 comments

Happy Friday--Again! I've made it another week. I feel strong today. I just re-read my last blog post--and a week later--I don't care at all that I ate an extra 250 calories. WHO CARES? This cannot be about calories, or the indi... Read more
Wow--Today is TOUGH
Friday, July 15, 2011      0 comments

So, today is my toughest day on this diet since I started in March. It's not that I haven't "gone off plan" before, but I have always PLANNED those moments when I indulged in whatever is was I was indulging in. That plan could include going... Read more
Quick Check In

So, I did it. I went home yesterday and immediately did my workout. Plan is to do it again, then run some errands after. I feel stronger--thanks Jillian!--and can't wait to keep going. Also, I am now wearing pants that are a size I hav... Read more
Monday Morning and I Feel Alright
Monday, July 11, 2011      1 comments

Happy Monday! This weekend was pretty good. I started a couple of challenges last week: the SparkPeople 28 Day Bootcamp and the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I did well and mostly stuck with them. I admit, I did neither yesterday. I m... Read more
