According to the dictionary, one meaning of consistency is a steadfast adherence to the same principles, course, form, etc. Unfortunately, my name isn't listed next to this definition. I have not been consistently Sparking, consistently e... Read more

44- the age I turned today 44- the number of pounds I need to lose to be within normal weight range 44- the number if licks it takes to get to the bottom of a Tootsie Roll pop Ok, so that last one isn't true, but the first two are. I co... Read more

My college graduation is 2 short weeks away. I am so thankful, but at the same time, I have a feeling these next 2 weeks are going to be non-stop activities. Perhaps if I listed all the things I need to do, it will make me feel better. Let's try... Read more

Ok. Wow! I just did day 1 of week 4 of Spark Your Way to 10k. It went like this: Walk 2 minutes @ 3.5mph; Run 3 minutes @5mph x 10. It is a lot tougher than it sounds. I ended up walking a little slower (3.3) and a couple of times I took my... Read more

What do you do when you haven't eaten near enough calories for the day and it is already evening time? I've had this issue a few times lately, as this last college semester comes to a close, because I've been so busy studying. I was at the ... Read more

On Saturday, it will be 6 weeks since I made the commitment (once again) to get rid of the extra weight and get healthy. I honestly don't remember a time when I've endured this long. Many times in the past, I either exercised, but didn't eat rig... Read more

Ok, so I was really disappointed with my weigh-in today. I only lost just under 1 lb. I was hoping to reach the 10lb mark, but I was about .8lb shy. I don't know what went wrong. Was it that I only did 2 days of 10k training instead ... Read more
My homework ate my workout

I had every intention of getting my 10k training in tonight, but it just did not happen. I ended up coming home from work and getting straight to dinner and then my homework and didn't stop that until now, but it's bedtime and I am tired. ... Read more
I haven't had a cup of coffee in how long??
Friday, November 05, 2010      1 comments

Well, it's been 4 weeks exactly since I had my last cup. My lips have not tasted soda or tea in those 4 weeks, either. That seems pretty risky since I'm in my last semester of college and things are crazy! But I firmly decided that I didn't need... Read more

Positive changes = postive results
Sunday, October 24, 2010      0 comments

Two weeks ago I began tracking my calories and keeping a close eye on everything I put into my mouth. Along with staying within my daily calorie goal of 1200-1500 calories per day, I've done the following: eliminated caffeine drinks (sof... Read more
Starting fresh- again

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." That's me. I've tried to lose the same 50 pounds for several years now, with little success. But today is a new day. It's never too late to begin again! I started tracking my food/water inta... Read more
Week 4- 2 short minutes, 3 long minutes
Wednesday, April 21, 2010      3 comments

So, I started week 4 of 10k training this past Monday. The schedule calls for walking 2 minutes at 3.5mph and jogging for 3 minutes at 5mph, 10 times (total 50 minutes). OMG! Those two minutes went by so quickly and those 3 minutes seemed to las... Read more

There are so many things going on in my life right now, being a wife/mother, working full time and going to school full time. It has been so difficult to focus on my weight loss efforts. So I decided to put some attention on a fitness goal, rath... Read more
Craving sweats
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      1 comments

I think I'm craving sweats...this is not a typo. I did mean sweats, not sweets. I just started a 10k training program that I found here on SP and after only 2 workouts, I feel really great and am so looking forward to the next workout! I a... Read more
