"DING", must eat!!!
A couple of days ago I decided to ban all food from my bedroom/tv area. My normal routine for winding down at night is watching a Netflix and hoping the cravings don't get the best of me. I swear, it is ridiculous--I eat a snack while thinking... Read more
Customer Service Bites
I'm having an interesting night at work. Just got reamed out by a lady who was hostile from the minute she set foot in here. She yelled so loud the whole store was staring at us and she was pretty insulting. After she finally left I turned to... Read more

Wow. I worked 8 hours today and for some reason I feel as though I haven't slept in days. It's almost 9pm and I'm about ready for bed. I replaced Yoga X today with some really stretchy and, needless to say, easier Yoga Zone. My body just HUR... Read more
Migraine city here, this is a challenge...
Well, last week the migraines hit full force after a stressful week. They are always connected to stress. And they hit about a day or two after the stressful event. The first one was debilitating and I was in bed for 48 hours. The last three... Read more
Off Track w/ the Calories on Mini Vacation
Oh, boy. I had the hardest time this week with my eating. My sister visited from last Saturday to yesterday. For a few days we were all in Pasco visiting my other sister. I thought I'd be fine if I were in my own home with my own food, but I... Read more
JUST DO IT
Yoga X today. My joints will be happy not to be banged around, and my sore back will also be glad. But I dread it. I have an appointment at 12 and I keep putting off my Yoga. I gave some advice to another Sparker yesterday. That advice was:... Read more

Any personal trainers out there have career advice?
Wow, having a terrible time at work. It's just a job to get me through for now, it sucks, the money sucks, it leaves me feeling depressed and anxious about how I'll get through another day of it. But at the same time I'm lucky to have a job in... Read more
P90X Even Good on a Bad Day!
Woke up this morning feeling icky. You know, one of those off days when you have no energy to speak of. It didn't help that I was up and down all night because of a naughty doggy I am babysitting. Anyway, I was thinking to myself, "how am I g... Read more
Is it Saturday again?
Saturday, my most dreaded day at work. Busy, busy and very draining. Sometimes I come home and go to bed at 8:00. I really enjoy my morning time with my kitty and my coffee. I get up an hour before I have to get ready and spend some quality ... Read more

Well, I'm missing the weights a lot. It was hard to go a whole week without. I'm so excited to start Week 5 of P90X Doubles on Sunday. Tomorrow is my rest or stretch day. I plan it that way because Saturdays are hard on me at work and I have... Read more
Yesterday I left work 2 1/2 hours early because of a migraine, and today I am missing the whole 8 hours. Yeesh, I really could have used that money. I'm trying to lay off the medication because it has side-effects like dizziness, weakness, and... Read more
Do I really have to starve?
Well, I'm still the same weight as I have been for the last 3 weeks. I don't mean to be obsessive, I don't need to be a size 0, I know I look ok, good even (if my clothes are on), but I have a goal and I want to reach it and I think my goal is ... Read more

Once in a while I just don't FEEL IT
Today is one of those days when I'm just not feeling it, the workout enthusiasm, I mean. I usually look forward to it and it is hard for me to take a rest day most of the time, so luckily this is only an occasional thing. I'm going get out the... Read more
