Welp ... I went to a Cycle Class last night. First time. Just in case I was under some misguided notion that I was maybe, perhaps, kinda-sorta somewhat in "okay" shape, that class taught me that I clearly am NOT! LOL! Not sure if I'll ever do it... Read more
I Think I'm Finally "There"
Monday, March 05, 2012      1 comments

It's taken a while but I think I am. I may finally have reached the point where I'm ready to do something different. I'm not just talking; I'm doing! I'm intentionally seeking out opportunities to exercise. I'm eating more fruits and vegetables ... Read more
Nervous About Next Week
Thursday, July 01, 2010      3 comments

So, I'm going out of town Saturday. I'll be gone for a whole week on a mission trip with my church. I'm trying to mentally prepare myself not to go overboard on the eating and snacking; pick the lesser of the evils at the fast food restaurants; ... Read more
Such A Slacker
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      0 comments

It's been DAYS since I've "sparked". No tracking. No blogging. No exercise. The most I've done is log on and spin the wheel so I don't break my streak. I don't know. I'm just not motivated. I haven't given up (I don't think), I'm just not a... Read more

Noticing A Difference
Tuesday, June 22, 2010      0 comments

I'm starting to notice a difference when I work out. It's not as hard as it was at first. Since I'm just starting to regularly exercise, I keep it simple. Fifteen minutes on the treadmill in the morning and fifteen minutes in the afternoon. The ... Read more

I spent a wonderful Father's Day with my family yesterday. In addition to my daughter and my two year old goddaughter, my sister and her three were there. And, of course, my dad, who monopolized the remote and forced us all to watch golf for wha... Read more

... and I've hit my 30 day mark here on SP. Unfortunately, I've lost some of the motivation I had when I first started. That always happens when I try to lose weight. I start out excited and pumped and ready to "just do it"!!! But then the excit... Read more
I'm starting to wonder ...
Thursday, June 17, 2010      1 comments

Maybe I'm not mentally ready for this. I have a good day, then a not so good day, then an okay day, then a bad day. I'm not sure if I've actually reached the point where I'm committed to losing weight and eating healthier. I need to do some... Read more

I Just Don't Get It!

I don't get how drinking water comes so easily for so many people. I have to force myself to drink this stuff. Some times it goes down a bit easier than others, but in general it's very hard. And I have to drink 8 glasses??? THIS IS TORTURE FOR ... Read more
