Nothing like a new year to make yourself get back on track! I have been absent from SparkPeople for a long three months. And of course I didn't eat as healthy as I did when I was tracking my food. It makes such a difference when you know that yo... Read more

I ran out of personal training sessions for the month plus my trainer is out of town. I decided to go ahead and do my lower body strength training that I would have done if I were not out of training sessions for the month. I feel like I did a p... Read more

I did a lot better this second time and my trainer, the class instructor, said so too! I basically kept up for at least 95% of the routine. I say "basically" because I don't think I was going as fast as everybody else but hey! my thighs are at l... Read more

I ate out quite a bit over the weekend. I didn't eat anything fried or overly fatty but the food was probably high in sodium and that's the key. My weight on Friday morning was 237.5 and my weight this morning (Monday 8/11/08) was 244.5. Goodnes... Read more

I broke my own personal record for burning calories on the cardio machines at the gym today. I burned 900 calories! Boy am I tired out now but it was totally worth it! I have worked my way up to level 7 on the Stair Stepper and Elliptical machin... Read more
My first spin class...Frustrating to say the least

Due to consistent prompting/pressure from my trainer, I did my first spin class this morning. My trainer is also a spin class instructor. I have been saying "no" to her for the past month and then finally gave in to her persistence. I knew ahead... Read more
Avoided making a very bad choice

I was out to dinner with my parents and husband's parents earlier tonight and my dad really made me mad. He kept staring at me while I was eating. For example, he stared at me when I dipped my fork in my dressing before stabbing the salad, stare... Read more

I'm on vacation in Maine with my parents and my husband's parents. I am doing my best to stay on track and only eat a "small" amount of the meals that I do not deem as totally healthy. There is a road near the house that loops around and i... Read more

Well it started on Wednesday when I was struggling with a sweet craving, most likely due to work stress. I didn't "give in" to it at work but then late that evening, at home, I got into some chocolate frosting... I think I must have eaten about ... Read more

I ate horribly today. I did do my 33 minute walk with Christine and did drink my minimum water requirement. It was Sonja's (front desk staff) last day and we had a breakfast potluck. I felt sick from eating so much "bad" food. I also had a bad s... Read more

I was doing great for a couple of months and then I got way off track for the past three months. I will not try to make excuses. I got a call from my best friend in California last night who initiated me getting back on track today. I feel it wi... Read more
