Monday, February 13, 2012      2 comments

Who knew spinning was so much fun? To me it always just looked scary. Someone yelling at you the whole time you're pedaling. In my gym the whole spinning set up is in a dark room. I tried spinning yesterday for the first time at a fundraiser for... Read more

I have been a Spark member for 5 years and I think I'm sitting within the same 10 lbs. Wow, something is wrong with this picture. In 5 years I couldn't get down to goal?!!!!!! In that time I have probably had a 45 lb range, but mostly staye... Read more

I have often thought about dragging around the 40 extra lbs that I have, but today ending my 3 mile walk and chugging up the hill, I thought, "I'm REALLY tired of dragging around 40 extra pounds." Maybe I'm getting older and it is just getting h... Read more

The Power of a Mother
Friday, May 06, 2011      1 comments

I always tell my girls that I want a "do-over" on being a mother now that I have more knowledge and have time to think things through. They are all great women and doing fine, but I just had no idea of the power of a mother. Mothers or any paren... Read more
