Why do I blog?
Friday, April 13, 2012      4 comments

I strive to blog every single day here on Sparkpeople. I've made abortive attempts at blogs before, but this is the first I've been really consistent with. Why do I do it? Well, a number of reasons. Honestly, one is I like the atten... Read more
The world is no longer spinning! Just.. tilting a little.
Thursday, April 12, 2012      2 comments

So today's the first time in a week I've felt something resembling normal. I woke up feeling great, and experienced no vertigo at all until the last 15 minutes of my workout! I got through an hour of boot camp, and 15 minutes of abs... the only ... Read more
Feeling better, got some exercise
Wednesday, April 11, 2012      3 comments

Feeling a good bit better today. It's a good thing, too; I've only got one of my meclizine (the dizziness med) left. Still have some antibiotics to finish. I did oversleep, so I missed 30 minutes of the 45 minute heart pumpin' class. I went for ... Read more
Now I'm starting to get MAD
Monday, April 09, 2012      9 comments

So I'm on day FIVE of not being able to go to the gym. This vertigo thing sucks. I've gotten used to eating at a certain level, and while I've adjusted my sparkpeople goals to reflect my current temporary activity level, I'm having a hard... Read more
Oh yes...

And would someone PLEASE tell me how to deal with my neighbor's psychotic, NEVER-stopping dog? That doesn't involve a hotdog and a tylenol PM? Seriously, this thing's only about a foot tall, and maybe 20 lbs, but it has a HUGE bark, and i... Read more
I declare today a cheat day
Saturday, April 07, 2012      1 comments

I don't really do cheat days. I eat healthy all the time, I don't diet, I don't binge (or at least, I try.) Today though, I'm just plain tired of tracking, and still hungry... so I'm going to just declare it a cheat day, and start over tom... Read more
Still out of action. Lots of Tea. Also: Eating well.

So the vertigo's still got my head, though it's improved, fortunately. I can sit, at least, without my head spinning. Standing, though... that's another story. It's better. I have done very well with the eating today; I dropped my activity... Read more
Learning proper running form... when you're broke
Thursday, April 05, 2012      9 comments

Okay, so I know that there are two problems with my running. 1) Crappy shoes. Seriously, my running shoes are broken down... they've worn down on the inside tread, and provide no support anymore. They're fraying something terrible. I'm wor... Read more
So close... and yet so far away!
Thursday, April 05, 2012      2 comments

So I love my sparkpoints... I find them terribly motivating, and I love being able to give sparkgoodies to other people. It's a good way to be accountable. And I'm approaching a 60 day login streak! Today, though, I'm AT MY MAX. All I have... Read more
I jinxed myself... now the room is spinning!
Thursday, April 05, 2012      5 comments

A couple of days ago, I was bragging to my husband about the fact that I haven't been sick, at ALL, since before I started working out 7 months ago. No colds, no sniffles, no sneezing, no nothing. Well, I clearly jinxed myself. Last night... Read more

It's all about attitude
Tuesday, April 03, 2012      7 comments

Everything about being successful, be it weight loss, participating in an online community, raising your kids, work, anything, is about your attitude. A bad attitude sours everyone around you, sabotages your efforts, and ends in eventual failure... Read more
Hawaiian Pizza and the New Gym Schedule!
Monday, April 02, 2012      2 comments

So today was a day of firsts. We'd planned to make pizza for supper yesterday, but an unplanned trip to the Mexican restaurant and and unforseen expenditure at Walmart of $145 (!) derailed those plans. I DID get two new workout shirts, though. ... Read more

Taking up the slack... and pain!
Saturday, March 31, 2012      5 comments

Ouch, ouch, ouch. My usual Friday body blast class was cancelled because the instructor had a death in the family, but another of the instructors happened to be there, and we convinced him to do the class with us. This is the guy that does... Read more
