I'm At It, Again!

Saturday, June 06, 2015      4 comments

I went to my first general physical in, say, 10 years. As a Woman, I most often make sure that my Plumbing still works. LoL. I have had notes of slight cholesterol issues and a sweet tooth that didn't seem to know when to quit. Thankfully,... Read more

Hurtz Donnit.

Yes. Yes, it does. I'm working out, again- kinda/sorta. I'm on a path. I've taken up the 30 day Plank Challenge among the 30 Day Fitness Challenges listed online. I've also gotten on the Squat Challenge as a warm up to the plank. I'm doing a... Read more

Never Done

Wednesday, June 04, 2014      4 comments

The journey towards fulfillment in any endeavor is never done. It could take me a little while to get where I want to go, I've known that for some time. I'm accepting it. I accept that I have spurts of high energy toward particular goals. Th... Read more

Weigh Back in My Teens...

I got married at 17. Divorced by the time I could drink in the States, but I got married pretty young. No, it's not because I was pregnant. I had surgery before then that has made the notion of pregnancy more upsetting than you may imagine... Read more

Did I detox?

I had the strangest experience, yesterday when I ate some candy and ice cream- I couldn't really enjoy it. After a few bits in the morning, evening came around and I felt like I had heartburn. I rarely get heartburn. And I KNOW I put too much... Read more

I actually found a depressing moment a spark of motivation. I went shopping for a dress in which I might attend a wedding. I don't like shopping for clothes or shoes- nothing works for me. A majority of plus size garb are set with Empire waist... Read more

No More Coasting

I've always said that my height gave me some leeway with my weight. I'm curvy, but not necessarily Fat. While I do believe one can be healthy at any size, there are times when you need to do more for it - you need to earn that girth! I am hea... Read more

Focus AS The Goal.

Monday, May 19, 2014      2 comments

I had discipline for nutrition and fitness at one point in my life. I had discipline for school and relationships- mind you, this was about 12 or so years ago, when I was in college. I was a yoga-doing, vegetarian Drama major with a hunky BF i... Read more

Yes, I'm an 80's girl, trying to be a 90's woman thru Y2K d2. Figure it out. ;p I'm feeling what I've been doing this past week- THIS Past WEEK! This week, the one that is JUST ENDING. Bake your noodle on that! I've gotten most of my e... Read more

Doing It All Day

Tuesday, May 13, 2014      2 comments

I just figured that I might be able to work out all day. I mean, with interval training and all that kind of thing being the rage, I don't see why I can't do a little more in a day. Just add a few twists, squats and sprints through the day. I sw... Read more

She Shall, From Time to Time...

Monday, September 30, 2013      5 comments

Take a week off. I did that, maybe a little more. I continued on the path, more or less. I'm still trying to configure a decent level of carbs for my body- going low carb seems to prompt some acne on my body, not an unusual event- in its... Read more

Lose to Learn

Thursday, September 19, 2013      2 comments

I lost my license. At least, I thought I did. It happens that when you get a new version of something you thought you lost- it turns up. and you know what I discovered when I uncovered my license? I was 160lbs when I got it- AFTER I separate... Read more

Starting to Expect Them...

The Rough Starts. This week started off pretty rough for me. The past few weeks have started off harsh, Sunday's being a LOT less restful than I would prefer. Last night, I got snipped at by some strange lady about taking her friends seat... Read more

So Far a Good Week!

Friday, September 13, 2013      4 comments

Well, This is my first week back to the Spark in about 3-4 years. I lost some weight with barely trying, got a couple pounds back- or I just jumped the gun and weighed myself a might too early, late in the day (Thursday evening rather than wait... Read more

I'm learning what I'm here to learn.

I need protein, for one! I'm consistent in THAT, at least. Everything else is pretty hit or miss, but I keep missing the mark on Protein. I think I'm doing okay. I would normally be beating myself up for not getting it right by now, but not ... Read more
