April 2011 - Here I am again, committing to eat better and excercise more. My baby girl is almost 5 months old and I feel like things are going smoothly. I am ready to start working on my waistline.

March 2010 - It's been a year since I started SP and I've gained 10 pounds. I'm pretty good with the excercise but still haven't been that committed to the eating part, until now! I started Weight Watchers this past week and am really going to do this. Even if I lose 5 pounds it would be a start!

Oct 2009 - My eating (and my weight) feels out of control. I stopped tracking calories and I know I've got a problem with portion control. I also work from home so have been grabbing snacks. New goals:
-Use foodtracker and stick to calorie range of 1150 to 1450
-Ban myself from the kitchen except for scheduled meals and snacks
-Plan low calorie meals that will still be filling
-Mix up my cardio routine
-Strength train!!! I know I don't do enough and this should help me

Feb 2009 - Joined SP. Something I want to learn is to better incorporate lifelong fitness and eating habits, not just for the months training for the next race.

"We no longer have the luxury of spending our energy on anything that does not lead us and our families to Christ. That is the litmus test... for our lives. In the days ahead, a casual commitment to Christ will not carry us through." Sheri L. Dew, “We Are Women of God,” Ensign Magazine, Nov 1999

    Thanks for the friend add. I have also added you. Its nice to meet another Utah Valley Sparker! I think it is awesome you do marathons and 1/2 marathons. I love WW, they have been my salvation. I hope your weigh in goes well. I usually go Saturday mornings at 7:30. Maybe I will see you there sometime! Keep Sparking, Paige

    Hiya Becca! I don't know what to tell you on the weight loss- I have better luck with it when i increase my cardio, but on the Road Runners "Running to lose weight" thread, they've been talking about needing to decrease mileage in order to lose weight. I haven't hit that point yet, though.

    Thanks for the goodie! Here's hoping for a decent race- I've been fighting a cold and allergies all week.
