I DID IT!
Soooo....I had my physical this week...Thursday morning to be exact (my youngest son's birthday). A little background: I've been going to this doctor (and her nurse) for 20 years. (This doctor delivered my youngest son, wh... Read more
Don't jinx it...
Dare I get my hopes up? As of this morning's weigh in, I'm .4 away from the Dr.'s recommended # given to me 5 years ago. Less than half a pound! According to my app I can expect to see it mid August. (I lose at an average... Read more
I haven't blogged in a bit, but there's not much to report. I did complete a 3 week round of 21 Day Fix Extreme, including the more strict diet with carb reduction plan, and after all was said and done, I only lost a pound. ... Read more

One pound away!
The school year is wrapping up and I'm dealing with all the craziness that goes along with it. It's a lot of fun, but exhausting. I'll be working until 8 or so a couple nights this week to get my room packed up. Our bu... Read more

It was a GORGEOUS day outside today! It would have been beautiful for a run, but my knee is in quite a bit of pain, so I figured I should rest it today. It had been a slight twinge for a week and a half or so, then yesterd... Read more

Trying to enter my first blog post from my phone/the app. (I'm even using the microphone feature!)

21 DF, Week 2
Hello fellow Sparkers!
Week two has started the mental battle, that I am just so tiring of - to be honest. I'm sticking to the plan religiously. In addition to now drinking my coffee black (which one who knows me, knows what a monumental ... Read more
Hello fellow Sparkpeople,
I started day 6 of my 21 Day Fix (yes, I’m counting!) running a local 5K to support the town’s Education Foundation. I’ve done this race the last three years and this one was my slowest time yet. There’s a tiny b... Read more
