I don't think I am going to lose any weight this week, so I will need to be excited about something else. Today is officially day 50 of exercise. I don't think I have ever made it for this many days in a row (and I know it is ok to take a day ... Read more

Could I be fit?

Tuesday, September 08, 2009      5 comments

So I decided to try out my new Polar Heart Rate monitor tonight to make certain that I am pushing myself enough when I work out. Fit or not, I am still f_t (overweight, will not use that bad word) because the chest strap was borderline cutting ... Read more

Week 6: 6lbs & 2.25 inches

Monday, September 07, 2009      6 comments

Ok, if this is what happens when you take vacation on the spark, then I need to get more time off! Couldn't believe the scale this morning. I moved it on the floor and stepped on it at least 8 times to make sure this number was correct. I do ... Read more

Vacation + Weight Loss, Not a Contradiction?

Saturday, September 05, 2009      2 comments

So, I usually weigh in on Mondays (and I will this week as well) -but I was dying to know if I had maintained on my little 4 day adventure in Niagra Falls. So this morning, I had my husband drag the scale out of hiding and I stepped on....268.5... Read more

Mini Vacation Update

Wednesday, September 02, 2009      2 comments

Ok, I will admit it - I was terrified about going on vacation and having everything go horribly awry. Yesterday we left for a 3-4 day mini-vacation in Niagra Falls. My husband and I visited Niagra 15 years ago this very week as our first ever ... Read more

I am happy to say that my hard work payed off this week! 2.5 lbs for a total of 16 over the 5 weeks that I have been sparking. My adorable husband (also a Sparker) has lost 21 lbs in the same time period and now looks like he did 10 year ago. ... Read more

It is Inevitable...

Wednesday, August 26, 2009      2 comments

I had this wonderful feeling today. For the first time, I think I believed "I can do this...It is inevitable." I am not sure what changed. I keep waiting for people to notice, for positive comments and last week I was disappointed by 2 people... Read more

Week 4: 1.5lb & 1.75 inches off

Monday, August 24, 2009      2 comments

I was actually happy to see ANY loss on the scale this week because I didn't feel or see it like I have in other weeks. My goal was to get to 1-2 lbs a week (ok, ideally 2) so this is a good rate of loss I think. Overall I am ecstatic with... Read more

The Good & the Bad

Wednesday, August 19, 2009      5 comments

The Good: I sometimes have to work nights, which usually wreaks havoc on my sleep, diet and results in a lot of tired, emotional eating. Yesterday I planned out in detail what I was going to eat when, and I stuck to it! Still had to ignore my... Read more

Monday, August 10, 2009      2 comments

Yeah! I expected more with all of the exercising, but at least I am moving in the right direction. I am still in my regular yo-yo range (down to 270) so I will be happy and feel like I am "really losing weight" when I get past those numbers. ... Read more

Saturday, August 08, 2009      3 comments

I went for a hike today and was reminded of how much I love hiking. I was very excited to notice a real improvement in my exercise capacity compared to last month (which is a reward I need to remember). During my life I have hiked a lot of tra... Read more

Shut up inner whiner

Tuesday, August 04, 2009      6 comments

Ok, so I assume lot of people have "inner whiners." This is day number 9 for me on Spark and my inner whiner is being really loud. "Its too hot to exercise, you are going to sweat more than your skinny walking buddy;" "You deserve that little... Read more
