I had another miscarriage. In the middle of a hurricane. And it somehow triggered some kind of neurological thing that made my lip swell up. I was in the ER for 9 hours today. At least school was canceled due to the weather.. Today just sucks.... Read more
Yesterday afternoon I had spotting and it was too late to go to my obgyn's office, so the nurse advised me to go to the ER. After hours and hours of waiting around at the ER and a few tests, I found out that I have a gestational sac but they cou... Read more
We did the first official thing of the pregnancy today - we went to a first trimester class at my ob-gyn's office! The class was kind of useful - I found out a handful of things were okay that I had thought were banned, like using products with ... Read more
First, thank you so much to those who have been checking in on me...some of you multiple times. It's not like me to be as absent from Spark, and some of my favorite Sparkers noticed. That's so sweet.

Hi everyone... just thought I'd share that since we are going to Cape Cod this weekend, I'm on a mini challenge to prepare. I started yesterday. I'm not tracking calories (probably should be, but I've been doing this long enough to know in gener... Read more
It's a little after 5 P.M. and I'm hungry. I was just about to eat a granola bar AND bring a brand new box of crackers to the computer with me...but then I thought about how I've made it all day so far with only healthy choices - smoothie, coffe... Read more
I've just really had nothing I want to write about. My weight is embarrassing, so I don't want to talk about that. I've been on track with my exercise just about forever, and back to tracking my calorie intake for the past couple of weeks, and t... Read more
(See link to my new shoes in my last post.)
They felt good! They weren't cushy like my other running shoes have felt when they were new, but I felt confident in them. They're so beautiful. :) I haven't been doing much outdoor running lately... Read more

I remember several years ago, before SparkPeople, I had a notebook where I'd write little promises to myself like the one in yesterday's blog, and then I'd grade myself the next day on how well I did. So far I'd get a 50%. I did the workout yest... Read more

*Eat only what is on my tracker today
*Do my full strength training workout this afternoon, and 10 minutes of cardio at the end
*Eat fewer than 2,400 calories tomorrow... Read more
