I weighed myself this morning. Well, I do that every morning. I'm trying to be super-honest with myself, here. Being realistic with my goals. Trying to eat healthy. Having a treat when I darned-well feel like it. (As long as I don't ALWAYS... Read more
How many times do we begin again?
I'm back. I have had a lot of changes in the years that I have been away from SparkPeople. I thank the stars that it is still here and going strong. I need to get my Spark on again!
So, I went through a divorce. My relat... Read more
Is there anything a girl can do to get away from the mood swings that accompany Aunt Flo? Those monthly visits don't effect me as much as they used to before I started exercising again, but I can still feel this air of melancholy hanging around... Read more
Silly little analogy
You get a car. You don't expect it to just take you places, right? You learn how to drive. You put in the proper fuel. You find out how to get from point A to point B. You take yourself there.
SP is that vehicle to a better life. It i... Read more
I bribed my daughter
Harmony wanted me to play Mario with her on the Wii. I told her that I would as long as she would work out with me. Is that so wrong? Wrong or not, she had fun and we laughed the whole way through the dvd.
I got 3 miles of a WATP dvd com... Read more
I feel great!
Oh, my gosh! I did a 2-mile WATP dvd with my 10-year-old ((((BRYAN)))). I was tired so I parked my butt on the couch when I got home from a trip to Walmart after work. I was fake-whining that I didn't wanna get up and work out. He pulled on ... Read more
Okay, show your age, how many of you are humming the song or even full out singing it? La Laaaa La La Laaa La....

I was headed to bed....
Over an hour ago, actually, I was headed to bed. I had done the dishes. Got some major laundry done. Washed and changed bedsheets on most of the beds in the house. Made lasagna and another casserole for the hubby to eat this week. Made some... Read more
I am back. I think I am really back. I wanted to be consistent for a while before I announced it. But here I am. I have been as consistent as a frazzled Stefipop can be, so here I am announcing my return.
The kids are in school and doin... Read more
The 5th of July
I had my last few days at work. It was not an easy thing to do... to leave a job you really love, you know. It is a very stressful job, but still a job I would love to have for the rest of my working days. Those are the kinds that are hard to... Read more
Working my way back...
Just a quick update...
I have gained. Not sure just how much, but it's not good. Spark is still essential to me. I can and have before lost weight without the Spark, but why try at this point? Spark makes it easier. Take the easy road... Read more
Wow! Long time, no blog!
Hi, friends! I'm back from spring break. Gosh, it was great to be home with my family. One small drawback to being home after so long away is that everyone wanted to go out. I went out to eat just about every day that I was gone. Everything from... Read more
Still no exercise
Okay, wanna hear my excuse for not working out the past few days? Ready?
I was sledding. By myself. I had just finished doing some strength training, and I wanted to head right into some fun cardio. It was before the big snowstorm hit h... Read more
I am choosing not to exercise today.
My body hurts. I had been doing WATP for quite a while as my main form of cardio. Well, the other night, I lifted some pretty heavy weights for my strength training. I was feeling a little sore yesterday, but I felt strong. I chose to do Tae... Read more
I am within my calories today! I cleaned out my fridge, and there are no leftovers in there at all. I have apples, lettuce, and bananas to eat. I have been going a little crazy on the peanut butter lately. I think I have eaten almost an enti... Read more
