Colds & fevers & fibreal seizures...& calorie counting
Phew! This week & past weekend has been just another round in the seemingly ever-present battle with t-bug's general health since the new baby was born. We went to story hour at the library last Thurs, & Fri saw her with a cough & a clear, runny... Read more
Really back this time...with a new baby!!!
So I pretty much went into hibernation mode during my pregnancy. Once I started my classes last August, I just couldn't juggle everything. So sorry, & I missed everyone who's befriended & encouraged me since I restarted Sparkpeople last year!

Back from hiatus - Pregnancy, School, & Nutrition catchup

So the pregnancy is going... Read more
Tired of Step-parenting (Super Vent)
Wow. So this week has been the week from hell, I kid you not. My husband's son is visiting us for 3 wks, & this is week 1. I cannot begin to describe SS's negative attitude or the huge chip he has on his shoulder. I mean, seriously, no one has e... Read more
22-hr Road Trip, Fast Food, Swollen Ankles, Nausea, & Weight-loss
We got back yesterday evening from our very long trip. It was a 22-hr drive each way with a toddler & me pregnant. Wow. I cannot express enough how glad I am that it's over. Phew!

Trying something new
I just dropped some hard-earned cash at Amazon.com today & got myself a new pedometer & a heart rate monitor. I went with less-expensive models that were rated high, so I only spent a total of $70, which I don't think is too bad. They'll both ar... Read more
You know how talking to some people is like talking to a brick wall? A pointless exercise? Well, sometimes I feel like that about everything. Like, for instance, trying to be productive with almost everything. Today I will be going to the post o... Read more
So I've been doing Zumba once or twice a week with Curves for about two months now. I absolutely love it! I've decided that when my Curves membership expires, I'm going straight Zumba. When I do it with Curves, I do the first half-hour with the ... Read more
Nutrition, Inches, Pounds....Clarity
So a week ago I started the BLC16 challenge, & I decided the first thing I was going to do was get my nutrition tracking underway. I tracked my food (every bite) for 6 of the 7 days that week. And I lost 4.5 pounds. o.O Wow! And I should add tha... Read more
BLC16 - Mighty Mocha Hunters
Today I started the Biggest Loser Challenge here on SP. Completed the first challenge & logged my starting weight. Booyah. Haven't entered my measurements yet. I don't really want to measure, but I know I should. Besides, I'm not sure if it's re... Read more
Back & Ready to Go!
We are back home from our trip to Florida. Our flight was delayed Wed, so we had to stay an extra night b/c we would've missed our connecting flight home in Denver. So we got home late last night after a very looooooong & fairly stressful journe... Read more
My DD & I are now comfortably ensconced in Florida visiting my mother, whom we haven't seen since Thanksgiving. We got in Wed night after an absolutely horrendous day of travel. In a nutshell, I left my Kindle on the plane of our first flight, D... Read more
Disappointed, But Moving Forward
So this past Sunday, I turned 30. Ugh. Never in my life did I dream of being 30. I dreamed of being 16, 18, & 21. When I hit 25, I thought it was the perfect age. (I also happened to look pretty good at the time, too.) But 30? No way. And I kno... Read more
Here's the truth. I am a sugar addict. I know it. I've known it for years. I've willingly admitted it for just as long. I can't help it. Sweet is totally my bag. So it's probably not surprising that one of the things I seriously have to watch is... Read more
