They are the devil to me. I love them oh so much, but I cannot stay away from them. I do so good following all the rules to healthy eating all day long. I put the kids to bed, and I rampage their cupboard like a rabid raccoon. I think I am going... Read more

It's been awhile since my last entry. As some of you know I've been my Father's main caretaker for the last year in a half, since his cancer diagnosis. The last few months were my toughest, as his condition declined rapidly. On January 5th, my F... Read more
Good-bye Summer
Monday, August 28, 2017      3 comments

I always hate saying good-bye to summer. My kids go back to school (this is not a bad thing😉), but all the fun we spent everyday is over, in western NY, we are already steady in the 60's. Oddly, the trees aren't changing. Usually, a week or two... Read more

Week Four - A Little Better
Thursday, May 18, 2017      3 comments

I lost a pound this week. Not bad, as it is better than nothing; but not good either. For some reason I seem to be stuck around 192-193. It feels like it has been that way for a few weeks now. The only reason I can figure why is my eating.... Read more

It's been a crazy week. Week 1 was a success with a 4lb loss! I pretty much just lost all the weight I gained during my week off. Which I knew I could do. This past week was suppose to be my 'ramp it up' week, however, that did not happen. T... Read more

I missed you spark friends this week. I needed a week off. Let me breathe a little before getting back into the game. I may have took a little too much time off, as I managed to gain 6lbs, but no worries. I am quite confident that I will lo... Read more
