Not Sparking as much...but still living healthfully!
Tuesday, September 13, 2011      10 comments

Hi all! I am not Sparking nearly as much as usual these days for two reasons: 1) I just bought a house and we still don't have internet there yet. Plus, the house is a fixer-upper so I need to dedicate most of my at-home time to working on... Read more

Today is an exciting day - it is the last day of summer school, but more significantly, today is the day Jess and I close on our house! We had our final walk-through last night and it was so surreal...all that space, all that 200-year-old charm,... Read more

My weight hasn't changed much in about five months now. Is this good or bad? On the positive side, this is probably the lowest weight range I've ever been able to keep relatively stable over this length of time, if that makes any sense. W... Read more

2nd blog post of the day! After the heatwave that attacked Boston as well as the majority of the country for the past few days, today's 70s felt AWESOME and I HAD to get out and run. The fact that it started out cloudy and actually ended u... Read more

If you taught Body Pump and there was someone (me) who came to your class faithfully every week, always set up right up in front, and always used heavyish weights (well, except for biceps and shoulders), would you be glad to have a "student" who... Read more

Sunday, July 24, 2011      7 comments

Before SparkPeople, I used to write journals that were kind of like how-to manuals for myself about losing weight. They never really worked because I was never consistent for long enough to make significant changes, but I did put some good thin... Read more

Today was a day of temperature extremes. The A/C was blasting painfully hard at summer school, but the A/C wasn't working in my Jeep or in the gym! Ugh! Well, the studio had A/C, but nowhere else did. So I just did my Body Pump and about 10 m... Read more
Proactive PMS-Related Overeating Prevention Post
Tuesday, July 19, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday I commented on my realization that a lot of my urges to overeat are related to PMS. So for now, my strategy is going to be to blog more often to try to help keep a positive mindset. Maybe I can beat this with mental power and a good ... Read more

I've been hemming and hawing about whether to mention this on Spark for a while...but I'm just too excited not to...I think we're buying a house!! It is a big antique colonial up on a hill in a woodsy part of Boston....needs lots of work but we ... Read more

Did you know you can run a report that shows your weekly or monthly average calorie intake? Cool! Now I've always been rather proud of the fact that I can apparently eat a lot more than the average Sparker and still lose or maintain, but I've ... Read more
