Sitting at a laptop, daydreaming about the time and patience you have for us-your family- I marvel at your inner beauty. You complete my love, spirit, and soul. My love, my friend, my husband...

Reflections of Yesterday
Had an moment to reflect on the progress I've made since January 10, 2010 when I first joined. I started at 167 pounds and now I am at 150. So I had a couple - or a few more- plateaus during my tenure with SparkPeople.

Worked it, BABY!
Got up at 7:30 to walk/jog at 7:55 - 9:00am. My gorgeous husband decided to walk with me.

I must say ... Read more
Doin' the Independence Challenge BABY!!!!
At 7:45am I am jogging along for 12 blocks til I reach the cloudy beach. Look up at a HUGE rain cloud. "No God, please don't let this happen to me".

Me: Well, it was good at the time. What's Toy Story3 without popcorn?
Body: Ha! Now you are paying for it. Here, let me add stomach cramps... Read more

The southern heat w... Read more
