Felt Like I Ran a Marathon...
Monday, July 28, 2014      5 comments

We brought the kids to the park yesterday afternoon, in the 90+ degree heat (with 70+% humidity). We've walked a couple of times at the park, but decided to time a mile yesterday. It took us 23 minutes and 18 seconds to walk the mile - and I hur... Read more
Back Again...

My last blog post was in October of 2013 - Announcing my pregnancy. Although I had hopes of being super healthy during the pregnancy, I gave up pretty quickly on SparkPeople. My baby girl arrived on 5/23 after a month of bed rest and a 2 we... Read more
Change in Plans
Thursday, October 10, 2013      6 comments

Well, it turns out my weight loss goals will need to change. My husband and I found out earlier this week that we are expecting our 2nd child (our son is 4 years old). So - I have now been nicotine and caffiene free for almost a week (and ... Read more
Still Going...
Thursday, October 03, 2013      4 comments

I'm about a month in now of "being healthier" -- I've definetly not perfected anything yet. I exercise most days (not all), and am mostly trying to watch what I eat and track (there are still some days here and there where I don't do either). I'... Read more

I just completed 2 weeks of my "streak" of healthier living. This has meant way less junk food (although I've splurged a bit), and exercising 20+ minutes almost every day - and getting a decent amount of sleep - and Water! I actually gained... Read more
A Small Streak
Friday, September 06, 2013      5 comments

For several weeks now, I've been off and on SP, and trying to make some better changes to my lifestyle. I think this week was when it finally "clicked" a bit for me. All week long I've drank between 64-96 oz. water per day. All week lon... Read more
2 Days without Fast Food
Tuesday, July 30, 2013      7 comments

It's been nearly 48 hours since I've had any fast food (after a weekend filled with pizza/chinese takeout/Wendy's burgers)... I've also fit in quite a few fruits/veggies within the past 48 hours. It's amazing, I already feel so much better - not... Read more
Today...So far, so good...
Monday, July 29, 2013      2 comments

No exercise this morning, I overslept (may need to re-think my work-out times and/or my bedtimes!) However, I am on track to get all of my water in and I've tracked my food today as well. SO, that's a start. Exercise wasn't the biggest goal... Read more

Well, I haven't done as well as I would have liked with tracking food/exercising this week (OK, I didn't do it at all)... BUT, I have managed to drink a minimum of 64 oz. of water EVERY DAY this week so far!! One habit down - on to the next!! ... Read more
My Wake-up Call
Friday, July 19, 2013      3 comments

I weighed myself for the first time in quite awhile last night. I was amazed at the amount of weight I've put on in just months - I didn't realize I was so out of control! Time to start putting myself - my health, as a priority! I think my... Read more

Monday, June 10, 2013      4 comments

Hi everyone. It's been a long while since I've been on here. I don't know why, I just can't seem to get myself in gear with taking care of myself or attacking my weight issues :( From last Aug-beginning of November I was on here all the tim... Read more
A new pattern... hopefully!

FINALLY... after two weeks of SWEARING I am going to exercise in the mornings, I finally got my butt out of bed Monday morning and hopped on the treadmill. Yay!!! Not only that, but I walked last night as well - for a total of 2.5 miles. This mo... Read more
Trying to get it back
Friday, January 18, 2013      4 comments

Well, I've been off SP for awhile, and just now beginning to get on here and there again. It's been a long while since I've consistently tracked my food, and even longer since I've worked out... at all! So, I've started trying to get thing... Read more
I quit smoking...
Monday, November 12, 2012      9 comments

And I am absolutely miserable. I am wearing a patch so I know logically that I am getting some nictotine in my system, but fighting with myself to not actually smoke is difficult. I know I CAN do this, but not 100% sure I WANT to keep trying. I ... Read more
Wednesday, November 07, 2012      5 comments

So, I find my motivation sometimes good and sometimes lacking. I just can't get it to seem to "click" into place like it was before - where I felt more committed. Not sure what changed - but I need to get it back. I've gained 5 lbs over the past... Read more
