I've been a little MIA lately

Monday, January 30, 2012      1 comments

Sorry for not keeping up with everyone's blogs and posts lately. I don't know what it was, but all of a sudden a million things had to get taken care of. One of which -- broke up with Brandon, and he was like, okay. That was it. No big d... Read more

Giving myself a kickstart

Wednesday, January 25, 2012      2 comments

I dusted of my Wii yesterday and wanted to revisit EA Sports Active. The whole reason I bought a Wii originally was to use Wii Fit (what a joke!) and then EA Sports Active. When I first got it over a year and a half ago, the leg strap baaaaare... Read more

Dilemma... need non-diet related advice

Tuesday, January 24, 2012      6 comments

Okay... so here's the thing that I've been stressing about. I started my online dating foray as one of my Spark goals in late November. I've been dating Brandon for about 3 weeks, and the longer we see each other, the more I think I just want ... Read more

I'm going to make it a good weekend. I started off strong with sleeping in, going to seminars all morning and Chiptole for lunch. Yum. Finally have to start doing some work though in a bit with my prostate cancer study... I made smart fo... Read more

Stress, stress, and knee problems.

Thursday, January 19, 2012      4 comments

I have had a stressful week. Its the first week back with undergrads on campus, which means I almost hit 2 as they were illegally crossing the street and not looking... I had a Monday with Brandon though before the week started. I'm still... Read more

Spark seems to be working

I have been a little distracted lately (quite a few date nights out with Brandon) and I was worried that it would affect my weight loss... Its been slow going the last few weeks; I think like everyone else, at first the weight seems to fall off... Read more

Spreading the Spark Today

Wednesday, January 11, 2012      1 comments

At our weekly lab meeting, I made a comment of "oh I don't bake anymore" since another girl brought in cookies... which led to my admission of my 70lb weight loss in 8 months. Seriously, a lot of people are just too PC to say anything. So ... Read more

I tend to overanalyze...

Tuesday, January 10, 2012      2 comments

I tend to overanalyze things, but yesterday's blog post became relevant a lot sooner that I had expected it to. Brandon and I have only been talking since right after Christmas -- we had our first two dates last week. So honestly, I don't in t... Read more

So when do you tell a new boyfriend that you used to be fat?

Monday, January 09, 2012      10 comments

So here's my predicament. I'm online dating now, which has taken an upswing for the positive. I've been talking to and gone on two dates with this one guy, and we're really hitting it off. Except, I make him nervous. To him I'm perfect and b... Read more

So yesterday evening was interesting. Went on a coffee date (and had my herbal tea) and the guy was okay, but just in a different place in life -- but as soon as I got home, the guy from last night called and we ended up talking for four hours.... Read more

All smiles today

Thursday, January 05, 2012      5 comments

Today has been a pain. Woke up before I wanted to, got an allergy shot, sat in a horrible meeting from 9:30 to 1:30... but I'm still all smiles. The weather outside is ridiculous! Its so sunny and warm and it just makes my Vitamin D rec... Read more

I finally updated my fitness goals on the start page... apparently with the increased amount of exercise I have been doing lately, my bottom calorie range jumped up from 1650 to almost 1800! Even though I weigh less, according to Spark with all... Read more

Yay for 2012

Tuesday, January 03, 2012      2 comments

Suck it 2011, its time for two thousand dozen to take over. I had a rough start like most people, aka, hungover. I was doing good and not drinking until the champagne came out... and I had too much. But other than that, 2012 has been pret... Read more

Things I Never Thought Would Happen, aka a 2011 Review

Thursday, December 29, 2011      7 comments

Now that 2011 is almost over I can start to reflect on what I've been through. I had tried just "eating healthy" and wasn't really working out at the beginning of the year. Just making a few small changes though in the early part of the ye... Read more
