Feeling Better About Myself
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      7 comments

So one week till I leave for Hawaii and surprise, surprise I have not lost the weight. I was feeling bad about myself for so long. I hate that I let my weight dictate my moods at time but it does. So here I am about 20-25 lbs heavier than I wa... Read more
Bad Day
Monday, May 09, 2011      2 comments

Today was a really bad day for me emotionally. It started out well. I ran outside for 30 minutes. Had a healthy smoothie/protein shake for breakfast. And than it happened. I went to return an outfit my husband bought me for Mothers Day. He... Read more

Thank you for all the great responses from my last blog. I'm not a quitter and as I was reminded...I am a Cubs fans and we don't quit. I decided that I need to just start at the basics. Obviously what worked 2 years ago isn't working for me n... Read more

I'm feeling sorry for myself and so I thought I would reach out for some moral support. I just can't seem to see that scale go down. Oh I have plenty of reasons, stress (which is at it's highest for me right now), hormones, menopause, new onse... Read more

I'm hoping for some guidance here from my Couch to 5K or Cubbies Teams. I signed up for my first 5k - April 16th. I know some of you have done it before - Race to Wrigley. I have been training on my treadmill - the Cool Running Couch to 5K wo... Read more
Is There Hope For Me Yet?
Sunday, January 23, 2011      4 comments

Last night I did something I don't recall ever doing. At least not that I can remember. Which doesn't say much if you knew how bad my memory is. Anyway, it was strange. Was there a full moon? Did someone put something in the one of 5,643 gl... Read more
Am I Being Tested?
Saturday, January 15, 2011      5 comments

Many of you know that I had a breast biopsy this week. I knew when I had the initial mammogram that something had shown up by the reaction of the mammo tech. I felt confident that everything is fine because I have been down this road before. ... Read more
If at First You Don't Succeed...

I never thought I would find myself in this predicament...again. And again. And again. Why can't I learn from my past? Why is it so easy to gain and so hard to loose? Every time my body gets smaller my head gets bigger and I think I can keep... Read more

Well, tomorrow I am having a buionectomy on my left foot. In addition the doctor is cutting the bone in an attempt to straighten the toe. So I will have a couple of screws and a pin coming out of my foot. I had this done in January to my righ... Read more

My younger cousin passed away this week. She has been suffering and in pain for over 10 years. I know she is no longer in pain - I truly believe she is up there with my sister looking down on me with a drink in one hand and a chocolate bar in t... Read more
Caution - Sensitive Subject
Monday, August 16, 2010      6 comments

I am going to address a subject that I have not seen posted on Sparks before. I will give all you young men and women who aren't comfortable talking about female issues a chance to back out of this blog. Ready? Okay. As many of you know I ha... Read more
Here we go again
Monday, March 22, 2010      2 comments

How many times have I said that? But I am really getting sick of myself. I know I had foot surgery but I promised myself I would keep the weight work outs up. Didn't. Plain and simple. I did do a little here and there but if I am honest wit... Read more
I did it!
Tuesday, February 16, 2010      6 comments

After months of eating mindlessly (sometimes I thought about that chocolate truffle as I grabbed for a second or third) and complaining about what I can't do...I did it! I actually logged my food for today. Even the packzki (sp?) I had for bre... Read more
Time to get my rear in gear -- literally!
Saturday, January 30, 2010      2 comments

Okay, it's been 3 weeks since my foot surgery and I am doing surprisingly well. Before I had the surgery I had all these big plans for myself where I was going to do weights and drink water and eats lots of fruits and veggies. Well if chocola... Read more
One Year Anniversary

Well I've officially been a "sparks" for a year now. In all honesty, I didn't get involved for a few months after joining but I did take that first step. Here are a few things I've learned along the way: 1. No matter how much weight I loo... Read more
