I've been away from Spark for quite a while now. I was doing good but things have changed a bit in my life and I've lost control of my eating habits and weight. The good thing is that I'm in a new relationship and am very happy but on the othe... Read more
To Warrior Dash or Not???
Friday, June 22, 2012      3 comments

For those who've never heard of a Warrior Dash, it's similar to a mud run. It's a 5k with obstacles. It looks like fun but it's intense. The training says to train for double the miles because the obstacles tires you out. I would love to sig... Read more
First race checked off my list
Monday, June 11, 2012      2 comments

Sunday was my first 5k. I wanted to finish it in under 35 minutes but finished in 40 minutes, those hills got to me. When I heard the music and I realized I was close to the finish line I started to cry. I was so proud of myself, writing this... Read more

My first 5k is this Sunday. I thought I wouldn't get nervous but it's starting to kick in. I'm already having dreams that it's race day and I'm not prepared. I'm excited but what is getting at me is the length of time it's going to take me to... Read more

Since returning from my vacation I have jumped back into losing the weight I gained & training for my 5k. Yesterday was a hard day. I wasn't able to complete the 30min, only got to 25min. I started getting a pain on my side & was difficult to... Read more

Went on a small vacation to my cousin's wedding and came back with 7 extra pounds. I wasn't able to exercise for 6 days so that had me feeling worse. Now I'm back & getting back to my groove. Minor set back but I won't let it slow me down, it... Read more

It's been a while since I've posted. In my absence I went from pre-diabetic to Type 2 include high cholesterol & hypertension. I was going downhill & fast. But it's not all bad news. With hard work & determination I was able to lower my suga... Read more
No more holiday cookies!!!
Wednesday, December 22, 2010      2 comments

So far my boss has gotten (1) Mrs. Fields cookie box, (1) large cookie tray, (2) fruit baskets (one came with chocolates) and (3) wines. The bad part is she loves to share. Even worse she can eat the cookies and not gain an ounce, I eat one co... Read more
Been away too long
Wednesday, December 15, 2010      3 comments

I've been away too long. Not away from home, work or a computer, from myself. I've stopped tracking my food and exercise. I've made a 1001 excuses of why I can't go on SparkPeople & I feel there's something wrong. My body has been telling me... Read more

Yesterday I reached day 60 on the P90X program. It was difficult, I'm getting bored but I'm hanging on. I took the 60 day pics & see a difference. Thank goodness 'cause my 30 day pics I was disappointed. I haven't lost weight but I see more ... Read more

I've haven't logged in for quite a while now. When I don't it's because I get off track. First I got sick & didn't have the strength & will to do my P90X program. When I felt better I managed to get in three days straight of exercise but then... Read more
In a funk

I haven't logged on for about 1 week. I've been in a funky state of mind & attitude. I've been on the P90X program for about 45 days now & recently I've been getting in a bad mood when I know it's time for me to pop in the dvd. I know why, it... Read more
What time to P90X?

It's been 1 month that I'm on P90X. I haven't lost any weight, no major body changes, but I am happy to report that I am able to do pull ups now!!! At first I couldn't even do half of one but now I'm doing 10, with a chair to put one leg on of... Read more

I'm trying very hard to keep a positive state of mind but I'm getting frustrated. Whatever happened to, "if you have nothing good to say don't say anything"? I had a family member, who hasn't seen me in 1 year, see a picture of me & tell me I ... Read more
P90X started
Monday, August 02, 2010      2 comments

Friday was my first day, with the Classic version. I decided to switch to the Lean version. The first dvd I started had a lot of pull ups and pushups. I was unable to do the pull ups so I used the bands & I can do pushups, but on my knees & w... Read more
