  • Goodbye August!

    8/28/2015 12:22:07 PM, by RAINBOWFALLS

    When I look back at the beginning of the year I started out with some good exercise goals. All went well until the knee took me out for the count. I got a little reprieve with some aqua therapy exercise and then I had to stop that per the doctor. Well today I'm back with some very good news. I had m... Read more

    I gained a pound this week. My food choices have not been great so I know what I need to do and yesterday was a cheat day pretty much. I got my paycheck but I was not happy with it. I signed up for the 401K and maybe I am asking for too much money out. I might have to adjust it to half tha... Read more

If i can open and talk it out with someone, EVEN ON SPARKPEOPLE... i can let go. I want to thank those on here who help me ven... Read more

    I've added a B complex Vitafusion vitamin supplement to the mix. The Chemistry of Joy expresses the need for it and exercise. I need to exercise tomorrow because I have not the last two days.

    Friday was the final day of the 90 day bikini body mommy challenge! I didn't end this quite where I wanted to be. I lost 3 pounds and 2.5 inches. But I will say I didn't give it my all every day. Tomorrow I will be starting the 2nd 90 day challenge. Below are my fit test stats for the 1st challenge.... Read more

    Lost 2 lbs this week but today was my cheat day where I grabbed a Starbucks and ate out with Andy at a Chinese place. Tried to watch Kill Bill but it was too violent for Andy. So we then listened to music instead and I had a lot of fun. It was a fun Friday night. I also got 2 books from Andy... Read more

    I am exhausted. Last night I stayed up past 10:15 to see two meteors from the shower that was happening. Then I got up at 5:00 am to start my day and I could not go back to sleep. I got a lot accomplished this morning but it seems like no result. I think the book club is dead because this mornin... Read more

    So I now have a training plan/trainer for NYCM. The goal is to get me to November 1st healthy and in one piece. To that end, I will typically be splitting my long runs to lessen impact on my joints/bones. I will also be doing a significant amount of biking instead of running 5 days each week. ... Read more

    Had to think about the date for a minute; thought it was still July. I gained 2 lbs. I think it is both my sedentary job and my eating. I had the buffet on Wednesday and the 2 donuts. Last night I had extra food that I didn't list on my nutrition tracker too. Andy asked me to go to a jazz show ... Read more

A short while ago i bumped into a motivational pic on pintrest that read "dont exercize becauae you hate your body, train because you love it!" That simple change of thinki... Read more

    Yesterday I was too tired to go to the rail trail and just did 20 minutes on my exercise bike. I'm up really early at 4:30 am and had a strange dream. I am upset because I go to court tomorrow over custody so that I can get unsupervised visitation with my children. I am worried that they are ... Read more

    I have been walking the rail trail and even earned my first sneakers badge on my fitbit for walking 10,000 steps on Saturday night. I have been walking with Andy and it is very nice. Unfortunately we have been going to A&W afterwards for ice cream and I probably should stop that! I regret the mix... Read more

I've got a tentative training plan worked out, but I think I'm going to have one written specifically for me for NYCM. This last week has been brutally hot and humid for our area, but I'm plu...

    7/30/2015 6:24:00 AM, by SLBROOKS3

    Too funny. I actually read up on the website for the Whole30 and was upset to see all the things you have to get rid of. I couldn't do it. Peas! I love peas and they pack 6 grams of fiber! I also could not give up dairy because I like my cereal in the morning with a little 1% milk. And my coff... Read more
