So, I finally decided to clean out my closet tonight. I have to say, it was quite a wreck - I couldn't walk in and didn't really know what I had in there. Anyway, I took the opportunity to try some stuff on. NowI've been on SparkPeople since ... Read more

My day for myself...and to remember my dad

Today was an off day; tomorrow will be better.

My onDemand went weird during my cardio workout (a new dvd) so I missed the last 10 minutes. While I was bummed out, it was okay because I'd already done about 50 minutes.
Eating-wise, I'm okay...totally within my range (well, except for... Read more

Everything happens for a reason, aka I got an even better dress!
This weekend was a whirlwind! We went to my friend's wedding Friday night - an incredible spread - a seafood extravaganza for the cocktail hour. I was full by the end of that, that I didn't really eat the dinner. I ate the veggies and the sal... Read more
I really Sparked today!
So this morning a coworker came over to ask me what I was doing to lose the weight - she had made a comment earlier this week that she noticed I was losing weight. So...I took the opportunity to tell her about SP - and since, I had it up on my c... Read more
So I found out today that I've met (and maybe exceeded) my 5% goal for this challenge - and we're only 1/2 way there! Yay me! And I was really moved by everyone who stopped by and congratulated me and shared in this victory. Hmmm, the power o... Read more
So, I feel a lot better today. I took a 45 minute walk during work again. When I got home, I did my workout (BL Last Chance Workout) right away. Then I ate dinner and then I put a wash in. It's 845 and I still feel pretty awake. I don't kno... Read more

Did you ever feel so unnaturally tired? Like it's almost a force? Well, that's how I feel right now. I am just exhausted and I don't feel like I have a really good reason to be. BF thinks I may be getting sick (it is like that exhaustion one... Read more
A nice surprise
I got on the scale this morning and lo and behold - I was 119! I finally broke through the 120's! The lowest I've been in 2 years. That's totally motivating!
