  • Its Happening Again

    5/27/2015 11:42:46 AM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    Today is May 27, 2015. I have logged into Spark for 10 weeks straight. If I had managed a healthy weight loss each week I could have lost 20lbs, be around 165. Last weigh in I was at about 5 lb loss. Which is basically water weight fluctuation at best. I noticed last week I was losing interest i... Read more

  • Let's Be Honest - Its Called Binge Eating

    5/20/2015 6:48:04 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    So this week I've stated that "I'm not have a good food week" and I suppose that is one way to state it but it is a very understated way of saying that I've been binge eating on just about every form of junk food available to me with the exception of hitting up a fast food joint. So if I'm being ho... Read more

    213 Good Morning Spark Friends! Today is the beginning of a new week with new choices for me. I received my new Spark Activity Tracker to replace the one that was broke during my fierce soccer game with my son 198 and I'm quite happy about that. It really does push me to get in my steps fo...

  • Work Week Half Over

    5/13/2015 11:23:39 AM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    Its been a hard week this week. DH has had some difficulty at work and it initiated some discussions about applying for new jobs which would require a move. I suffer some anxiety when we talk about moving. As much as I want him to be happy and satisfied with his job I just really don't want to ha... Read more

  • Having a Harder Week

    5/12/2015 11:34:51 AM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    Its amazing how I cycle between being totally on top of my fitness and food choices and being totally ... well...not. I'm have a hard time this week. I had a rough "mother's day" (mostly cuz I was a mother ALL day) and I've just not been able to get into a groove so far this week. I've made prett... Read more

  • Note to Self.....

    5/11/2015 4:46:33 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    On Saturday DH and I went on a 3 mile hike with our son while our girls were at an scouts outdoor survival event. I had my spark tracker on my shoe, where it is supposed to be the most accurate. This is fine and all for hiking, even though we stopped an awful lot for DH to "study" the trail map an... Read more

  • Life sucks...partially anyway.

    5/5/2015 7:51:16 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    My FIL passed away a little over a week ago. He was one day shy of being a full month into his diagnosis when he died. I am still in a sort of shock over it. We had four (yes...FOUR) services last week. It was just sort of a relentless sadness; a continual ripping off of the scab. There is still so ... Read more

    4/29/2015 1:42:36 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I am not sure what happened yesterday but its not a day I want to repeat, ever. 40 Monday may have been a good exercise day and a bad food day but Tuesday was a worse food day and a terrible exercise day. Ugh. I'm not even sure how my choices get me to the place I was in yesterday. I need to ... Read more
