  • Day 4 and going strong

    8/25/2016 11:38:03 PM, by KCARRAR

    I went to the gym again after work due to not waking up on time but I went! We were on a pass but not officially signed up! Went grocery shopping tonight and our cart was full of healthy stuff! I was even able to enjoy a little something sweet and stay within all my ranges!... Read more

  • Day 3 of my journey

    8/24/2016 10:48:24 PM, by KCARRAR

    I didn't wake up early to workout, because I was so tired. But instead of blowing the day, I just decided to go after work. I made some yummy bacon, spinach, and egg "muffins" last night and they proved to be a good snack today. I stayed within my calories/carbs/fat/ and met my protein but could use... Read more

    8/23/2016 11:58:57 PM, by RJFERRARO315

    I went for a walk with our dog. I'm thinking that if I get my kids to walk him, then I can go running without carrying a poop bag. There are just not enough public trash receptacles in our neighborhood.... Read more

  • 8 days straight of tracking... and almost to my first goal in a week...

    8/23/2016 10:51:47 PM, by OAKBORN

    Well, I have tracked for 8 straight days. I have lost 2.8 lbs. My first goal is 3 lbs, and I have myself 3 weeks to lose it. I figure 33 lbs to lose, I'll take it in 3# chunks and allow 3 weeks for each 3 lbs. This is, of course, adjustable based on how fast I actually lose 3 lbs. The journal I... Read more

  • Day 8

    8/23/2016 8:25:11 PM, by BRENTICUS

    Did 30 minutes in the treadmill at a moderate level. Loving the incline work, really gets my heart beating and sweat pouring. Also did a little lifting, will probably incorporate more of that once I get my personal training sessions. I hope everyone has a successful day! Keep up the awesome work. ... Read more

  • Back at it again... eep! back up to 183?! OH NO!

    8/23/2016 12:20:19 AM, by OAKBORN

    198 It has been a hard few years, trying to get myself back in gear... especially since I moved out to the Pacific NW.... The stress of losing the job and just generally getting settled has taken a toll on the fitness and good eating habits that I'd worked so hard to establish in 2008 and the ... Read more

  • Day 6

    8/21/2016 10:41:35 PM, by BRENTICUS

    Well I didn't make it to the gym today, though I did tour one that I am hoping to join with my wife. We went out and got all of the things she needs to start working out this week so that is exciting. I ended up working a little over 14 hrs yesterday in the 95 degree weather and wow did my body tell... Read more

  • Horrible week - new outlook

    8/20/2016 11:49:53 AM, by JRDUPREE

    My week was filled with a lot of emotion following a tragic accident. My husband and I own a small business with 10 employees. 2 of our employees are cousins and are only in their 20's. One of them lost his sister in a car accident last weekend. She was only 26 and it was devastating to both of my... Read more

    8/19/2016 7:40:20 PM, by BRENTICUS

    Tried a new program on the treadmill today. It was beastly awesome, and I pushed myself pretty good. Between the daily activity and getting my eating back on track I am overall feeling really good. So happy Friday everyone!... Read more

    8/19/2016 1:28:38 PM, by DOYOUWASH

    I (re)joined Spark People on Sunday after several years of absence. I had gotten out of shape and was not living a healthy lifestyle. I wanted to make a change, so I began working out but wanted to do more and to be able to track my progress when I remembered, "Spark People!" So here I am ... Read more

  • Day 3 of my saga

    8/18/2016 9:43:28 PM, by BRENTICUS

    So I am questing to workout for 365 days in a row, obviously with light days to let my body recover as it needs to. Yesterday's little jogging attempt worked out better than I had anticipated. My knee is definitely sore today, but not nearly as bad as it has been in the past after such attempts. I d... Read more

    8/18/2016 3:53:31 PM, by INSPIREDSOUL

    I haven't posted for awhile. But I missed everybody. It does the mind good to focus on your goals. Spark people can take up hours of time when you get involved in reading and replying to so many stories and friends. Since I last posted, I found out about taking High Dose Biotin for multiple ...

  • 365 days of workout, day 2!

    8/17/2016 10:43:57 PM, by BRENTICUS

    Had another successful day at the gym. Went 45 minutes in the treadmill. Picked up the speed to a really brisk walk which was awesome. My knee has been holding up pretty well so I decided to take a little chance and did a fast jog for the last 45 seconds of my workout. Not a lot for some people but ... Read more

  • Week 3 of 6

    8/10/2016 1:09:49 AM, by DUCKYDIANA

    This week I: Tracked everything I ate on SP -the Mobile app has made this really easy! Told myself NO CHOICE, when I was tempted to eat outside my plan -I was surprised at how effective this was, it has stopped me from eating this week probably 20+ times. Practiced not eating everything on my plat... Read more

  • Choices

    8/8/2016 3:12:15 PM, by BRENTICUS

    So for a while now I have been trying to get my wife on a healthier path, as it is very hard to try to be healthier when she is not on board and kinda sabotages me. So I have finally made the choice that I can no longer tie my life choices in this matter to her. If she doesn't want to workout or eat... Read more

  • trying something new

    8/7/2016 11:49:35 PM, by JPTOWNSEND

    I have been at a plateau since last October, and have not been very consistent with strength training. I used to do a super intense program called Max-OT and got super results when I did. But now I know, since I am older (er, ahem...) and since I have had injuries that stopped me for long periods of... Read more

    Summer means fresh fruit. All I need to do is wash and eat. Sometimes I get more creative, but so far I havent tried making a melon hedgehog. Just thought it was super cute. When I do cook in the summer I go for big batch recipes. That way I can have several leftover meals and not ha... Read more

  • 30 days of workouts: day 7

    7/31/2016 7:58:41 PM, by HEALTHYSHELLS

    I started earlier in the week, and wanted to prove to myself that I could do a workout every day. I am sore but feel amazing. I have so much energy. I used to feel like a slug in the morning, and today I woke up before my son and was being productive. I have three more weeks left and a possible Seat... Read more
