I can't believe I've been Sparking for 6 whole weeks and I'm still going strong. Wow! Even I'm impressed.
I had a terrific time with my god-daughter this weekend. I even made good food choices when I took her to play at McDonalds. Havin... Read more
I did it!
It's happened: I am officially addicted to exercising. I got up today and wanted to watch Nicholas Cage on Kelly Live. This is when I usually am on my treadmill. Then, my soap is on. I'd changed my treadmill time to 9am so I could watch my s... Read more
Happy Valentine's Day
What a nice day. I got ready to exercise and had all kinds of interruptions but I perservered and worked a little bit harder than I have before. I walked to and from the store to get a Valentine for my husband. I fixed my hair down for the fi... Read more
I went out to dinner for oysters with my daughter on Friday night. I had been too busy to eat a thing until dinner. I ate like a man but I watched what I ate. I ended up being within meal boundaries even eating until I felt like I would burst... Read more
I hope this gets easier
I jogged, in 1 minute intervals, for every 4 I walked, for 30 minutes of my workout. It was difficult and I was sweating like I did when I first started working out. I did it though! YAY!
My dear husband is home today, because he took m... Read more
It's been a month
I can't believe how much has changed in one month. I have gone from feeling winded walking up my stairs and my ankles and knees hurting when I walked down them, barely moving all day, and living on a vicious cycle of eating/guilt to waking up a... Read more
My husband told me he fixed my treadmill on Sunday. I was very excited to not have to miss a day of exercise. My sister came over early, before I started my workout. She decided she wanted a treadmill and so I was going to let her try out min... Read more
Thank you Spark Friends!!!!!!
I really did miss the support I get from here. I read the comments on my blog and was blubbering and smiling at the same time. It is so wonderful to read your supportive, and very helpful comments. This is a tough undertaking but, when I make... Read more
Wow, did I ever miss Sparks this week
My computer had a breakdown on Wednesday. I immediately started tracking in a notebook though. I deep cleaned my house, in addition to my workout, on Wednesday and Thursday. I, unfortunately forgot to drink enough water and didn't eat enough... Read more
I 'm a size smaller jeans than I was when I started this 4 weeks ago. I threw out my old jeans and am wearing 2 sizes smaller (I have to wear a big shirt to hide the rolls. therefore, one size smaller). I am feeling so much better. Exercising ... Read more
Gotta be real
I struggled with whether or not to post this and decided it's important for anyone, including myself, to see that I'm not always Polly Postive or Susie Sunshine during this journey.
I had a lot to do yesterday and really didn't think I co... Read more
I'm going out to lunch today for India food. I love it but want to make sure I don't eat all of my calories in one meal. I've researched the nutritional values and calories for my favorite dishes. I think I will skip the delicious tikka masal... Read more
Small changes are good
I got on my treadmill yesterday without much enthusiasm but, once I got started, I accomplished something new. I was able to kick my speed up 10 notches for 20 minutes, instead of 5, of my 50 minutes. I still fall into the 'poor' fitness cata... Read more
hahahaha...April 5th of last year?
I didn't do very well last year in my quest for fitness. I didn't make myself accountable for anything. I exercised when I felt like it (& relied on others to get me out to exercise), I didn't input my food on Sparks, and I half-heartedly dra... Read more
on my way
Here we go...the blog. I've not done this before however I think it will help me
My husband always tells me he loves me no matter what size I am and, in the past, he hasn't helped me be healthy and fit. Well..., for some reason, he has ju... Read more
