I've found my inner Spark. I hit that A-HA moment when it all became crystal clear... where the motivation and drive that I seemed to be seeking was found within myself.
I've found a way to keep myself on a workout schedule, to train not only... Read more
I've not said too much about a friend of mine who's son is struggling with Ewing's Sarcoma, but I feel the need to share this in case someone can make it.
JJ has been through two surgeries and radiation and chemo treatments. He has lost pa... Read more
It's March first and it's already off to a crazy start. Work continues to keep me busy and with class winding down at college I've already starting writing their final exam- look at me planning ahead. I'm not about to shove my fitness time asi... Read more
Ok, so it's a title that's more reflective of soccer than a scale but dangit- I feel like I should be able to scream it at the top of my lungs with that much emotion!
I weighed in a couple days ago at 135, but was afraid to post it, thinking i... Read more
Hello again 130's, it's been awhile and I've missed you. I weighed in last week and I was still in the 140's, this morning the scale said 138.8 and it's nice to be back. Still 3.8 pounds to go until I hit the top of my maintenance range again... Read more

I've been staying busy cleaning up the yard and walking. Ended up going to the IL's cemetary this weekend and digging all the area around it up so make it easier to plant again in the Spring. Finished raking the leaves at my MIL's and sweeping... Read more
There are things in life that make you stop and think... and then there are things in life that are simply beyond words... this is one of those things. A co-worker came into my office today with a collection of Christmas cards and asked me to p... Read more
Growing up I was an active kid, never had any extra meat on my bones to worry about, as a matter of fact, was just plain old skinny. Then the years passed and while I didn't have a lot of extra meat on my bones, I had more than I did and I bega... Read more
Sat at my desk this morning and watched the sun rise with the lights turned off (lit of course with the glow of my PC) and while still basking in the stress free moment I logged into SparkPeople to record my food, fitness, etc for the day. I ha... Read more
We've all had it happen to us, especially when you were a kid. Someone put something in front of you and said "eat this, it's good for you". So, in the midst of my physician trying to put her finger on what's causing my blood pressure spikes a... Read more
So my last blog was about my tomatoes and how they were slow coming on and I couldn't wait until they did... this blog is about the other side of things...
I got home from work last night and hit the garden. I'd been kind of neglecting the on... Read more
