Time to Focus
Thursday, July 01, 2010      4 comments

Ah, June... June was a very productive and eye-opening month for me. First, the updates on my health. I decided that since June is a month with 30 days, it would be the perfect time to do the Wii EA Sports Active 30-Day Challenge. I starte... Read more
Commitment and Other Challenges
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      2 comments

Let's start with the good news...and there's lots of it! 1) I finished my master's degree in two semesters. It was overwhelming at times, and I'm rather burnt out on all things academic, but it's done. 2) I've continued my water drinking... Read more

On January 1st of this year, I made a commitment to finally stop the vicious cycle of losing and gaining weight. I've read enough diet and exercise books, purchased enough gym equipment and workout DVDs, and educated myself on the ways to lose w... Read more

Hey Spark friends, March has been an insanely busy month, so I haven't been on the site very much. I wanted to share what's been happening in my life lately, though. At the beginning of the month, I decided that I was ready for a serio... Read more
Farewell, February!
Sunday, February 28, 2010      2 comments

I've been completely MIA this month, and I don't have any particularly good excuse for it other than I pretty much hated February in a not-quite-rational or justifiable way. But I'll recap the months events so that I can start fresh in March... ... Read more
Winter Blahs + Denial + Avoidance = No Blogs for 2 Weeks
Sunday, February 14, 2010      2 comments

Let me start out by saying that I'm still doing well overall. I am less than a week away from hitting my 50 day streak of drinking 64oz of water per day. I finally dipped below 205 lbs. and dyed my hair to celebrate (yay!). I've also been tracki... Read more
January's Accomplishments/February's Goals
Monday, February 01, 2010      5 comments

While the scale still won't cooperate at letting me hit 205 so I can cash in my first reward (it's close, though!), I have a lot to celebrate accomplishment-wise in January. Here's what I did: **Drank 64oz of water every single day. The str... Read more
Mini (Re)Boot Camp - Day #4
Friday, January 29, 2010      1 comments

The scale is not my friend. It went up another pound. The scale and I had a long conversation this morning about why that was the wrong direction, but alas, it didn't listen. I explained that I didn't deserve it because I've been exercisin... Read more
Mini (Re)Boot Camp - Day #3
Wednesday, January 27, 2010      2 comments

Ugh. That's how I'll describe today. Just...ugh. The day started out okay. I slept in a little later than I'd intended, but still got up before 8am. My knee felt better, and I was in an okay mood. And then I stepped on the scale... Read more
Mini (Re)Boot Camp - Day #2
Wednesday, January 27, 2010      2 comments

Today was another productive day as I restart my exercise efforts. I was a little sore this morning when I woke up, but I think the combination of a toasty bubble bath before bed last night and yoga this morning helped quite a bit. My energy and... Read more
Mini (Re)Boot Camp - Day #1
Monday, January 25, 2010      2 comments

I've been slacking a little bit these last couple weeks as I've adapted to having Nora, my new puppy. I've stayed on track with food tracking and water, but I'd let the exercise routines slip a little bit. This week, I knew my schedule would als... Read more
Restarting the Streak
Thursday, January 21, 2010      2 comments

Well, my daily blogging streak ended after 18 straight days. The 19th was M's birthday, and while we didn't have stay out late at all, I was just too tired to blog. The birthday dinner was nice, though. I splurged a little on a crab bisque soup,... Read more

Another short blog because I'm exhausted. Raising a puppy is hard work! We had a very productive day from the puppy's standpoint, however. First, she was accident-free in the house -- not because of anything she did, but more because I took her ... Read more

I forgot to do my week-in-review yesterday with all of the puppy activity, so here's the recap. Not a great week, but I'm still chugging. Category #1: Weight Starting weight on 1/1 - 216.4 Weigh in Saturday - 209.4 Results - lost 7.0... Read more
Puppy Adopted!
Saturday, January 16, 2010      8 comments

This will be short because I am exhausted. It has been an exciting day for us. We went to the animal shelter this afternoon to meet a couple different dogs. I'd posted a picture a couple days ago of one of them, but there was a second one that w... Read more
