After an extremely stressful few months, I am so disgusted with myself. We bought a new rv (some of the stress) and it has gigantic mirrors in the bedroom. Every time I walk in, I see the reflection of what I have become and am so disgusted. But... Read more
Squeeze in a run for more energy?

I had (have) 19 million things to do today. I knew I would be cutting it close by trying to push a run in after I finished and before dark. The minutes ticked on, the sun was sinking fast, and I still was not close to being done. I dropped every... Read more

I set up 4 weeks of runs in my interval timer. I didn't follow any "guide" but did my own. I remember trying to run last year, I stalled in the first few weeks of interval training because they were so hard. I gave up and had to restart many tim... Read more

4 months is all it took to put on the 20 pounds I had lost. 4 measly months. I remember being at the doctors office in August 2014 and the nurse told me I looked damn good for 185. She would've guessed 15-20 lbs less. I maintained 185 until Ap... Read more

I really feel like it is easier to focus on the things I need do for my health and my body during the fall and winter. I'm sure it is the slower pace of things, but in reality it is also the fact that I don't constantly have to worry about 100 m... Read more

I saw another Spark member had posted their "January in Review" and I thought it was such a great idea that I would do the same! The biggest accomplishments in the month were: I was very proud to not make any resolutions this year. I al... Read more
The great Plateau of 2015

Hopefully the title of this post becomes less true. I am dying to see the scale drop solidly below 190. DYING. Non weight related victories are everywhere, but the scale is a big part of feeling accomplished, unfortunately. Today I s... Read more
