I'm working really hard - have been for about 8 weeks. I'd say my eating is about 80% good and I've been working out four times a week on average. I'm not getting discouraged or giving up (my gym partner would never let me even if I wanted to), ... Read more

Thursday, June 13, 2013      2 comments

Today is the last (half) day of school for my two oldest sons. In the fall I'll have a kindergartner, a 1st grader, and a 3rd grader. Wow! The only thing that made me sad today was how many parents I heard who were moaning about having their kid... Read more

Getting Enough Sleep
Thursday, May 16, 2013      5 comments

Yesterday is an absolutely perfect example of a couple things we need to know about health, fitness, and better habits. First, not getting enough sleep REALLY affects you the next day. It ramps up cravings for junk. I had to fight off the ... Read more
Long Night
Wednesday, May 15, 2013      6 comments

Best laid plans and all that. I went to bed at a decent hour, but Robert was up at 1:00 a.m. needing attention. Even after a much-needed diaper change, a drink, and some cuddles it was still 2:30 before he settled back down. And then only becaus... Read more
Reflections Day 2
Tuesday, May 14, 2013      4 comments

Well, dear friends, it's the close of another day. And it has been another successful day for me, though not quite as productive as yesterday. Since my poor head feels like it's splitting thanks to allergy and sinus issues I'm going to just hit ... Read more
Reflections on Day 1
Tuesday, May 14, 2013      5 comments

So it's actually the morning of day 2 here, but I decided that staying up late to blog was less productive than heading to bed and getting some much needed shut-eye. So here are my thoughts about yesterday: The Spark Solution asks you to re... Read more
Spark Solution Week 1 Day 1 and catching up
Monday, May 13, 2013      3 comments

Well, dear spark friends, let's see. I've been noticeable only by my absence for about three months. I relapsed into all of my bad habits, and now I'm paying the piper. I've gained back all the weight I previously lost and an additional 10 lbs. ... Read more
Keep Moving Forward.
Tuesday, February 05, 2013      6 comments

It feels so good to have found my motivation again! I'm still not getting enough sleep - occupational hazard of being a mom I guess. But on every other front I'm doing better. Regular exercise has been a bit slow in coming, but if the snow holds... Read more

So glad to be moving forward and downward again! Even though I still haven't been getting in my exercise I have dropped 8 lbs. over the last couple weeks. It's a great feeling, especially since I've been in a holding pattern for so long. Guess m... Read more
Today Brought to You by Coffee
Thursday, January 31, 2013      9 comments

No sleep last night...absolutely zero. As a matter of fact, it is 6:30 am and the baby is still crying inconsolably. I'm calling the clinic as soon as the phone lines open at 7:00. Robert is so miserable, not that I'm much better at this point. ... Read more
A Series of Unfortunate Events
Monday, January 28, 2013      5 comments

Well, my best efforts to get to bed earlier keep getting sabotaged. For example, last night the baby was up four times between midnight and 2:30 am. Ugh. I cannot function on four hours of sleep anymore. Makes me wonder how the heck I lived virt... Read more
