So feeling better today. Now my nose is running so I'm thinking the sinus infection was real. Anyway, last night I was SO HUNGRY! But I stuck with the congee cleanse. Mostly because I liked the dinner. I DID at some pepper. Surprise...My carb/fa... Read more
First bump in the road

Feeling crappy. I'm certain a big part of it is my psuedo sinus infection. Also, I'm on day 4 of the congee cleanse which starts 3 days of more restrictive eating, working up to a fast on day 7 and working out of the fast on days 8-10. I'm modif... Read more
Sinus infection or cleansing?

Am used to the foggy brain when detoxing but not sure about the stuffy head and fever. It came on suddenly, completely out of the blue yesterday. Could hardly eat last night. Don't mind the food on this 10 day routine; it's all very yummy and h... Read more

Day one of the congee cleanse in process. So far, I'm incredibly FULL. Makes perfect sense, it's all congee and organic veggies. Couldn't manage the chicken at lunch - dry and no spices. I think that's the hardest part so spices. I get ... Read more
Taking my own advice

OK. I've lost a little over 40 pounds in five months and met my first major goal. I think I've been a little wacky because I've not really defined a realistic second major goal. I had told myself to just get here and then see what happens. If I ... Read more

I've learned over the past few months of Sparkin' it that I struggle with emotional eating and making less than conscious choices during my week of PMS. I think that for three months I've dealt with it pretty well. It took several days each mont... Read more
Ramblings on freedom and normalcy

Two blogs in one day and I didn't even think I'd manage one. Shows that once I start, you can't shut me up. Had an interesting feeling this morning. Dropped my daughter at middle school on my way to work so had a different route than usual. Fou... Read more

Beautiful day today. Not sure if I'll get in my exercise. Extraordinarily busy. But...I did run nearly the whole mile last night in my C25K training. It's doubly cool because I started early and ran both hills and flats. Also, I wasn't even goin... Read more

It may not be pretty but I think I'm at the point where I need to write. I need to be outwardly focused. Perhaps others will see kernels of help in my ramblings, who knows. Whether that's true or not, I need to give this a shot for me. I think I... Read more
Don't really have much to say
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      1 comments

I'm just plugging along, exercising and still eating pretty well. It's kinda boring. I might have hit a motivational plateau. I think because I realize I've still got quite a way to go. This isn't an unexpected situation but I'm going to have t... Read more
Only 5 pounds away from my first major goal
Friday, April 09, 2010      1 comments

Wow. I'm down almost 32 pounds. Very nice. What's kind of interesting is how unemotional (is that the word?) I feel about it. It's nice and I'm really, really pleased but it's not the be-all, end-all of my day or my week or my anything. Will hav... Read more
Something to add to the "things I've learned" list
Friday, March 26, 2010      2 comments

I've come to realize that it REALLY ISN'T all or nothing. Nothing is. My a-ha moment came this evening when I lay down across the bed with my workout clothes on and took a little snooze. After about 20-30 minutes, I voluntarily got up, put on my... Read more
Wow, I shrank right through my clothes.

Having lost weight before, I've got plenty of clothes in plenty of sizes in my closet. "Closet shopping" is one of my favorite activities. Well this time, I've not been paying too much OCD type attention to my weight loss. Went to put on a skirt... Read more
My first compliment
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      3 comments

Wow. I received my first compliment from someone who's not my one of my close friends (who know I've been working at being healthy and losing weight) or my mother! A gentleman from another department at work casually said, "you've lost weight. ... Read more
I've got a new goal
Sunday, February 28, 2010      0 comments

Okay, I'm actually going to do the couch to 5K workout. I think I can do it. It's 10 weeks and I'm hoping to be ready around the time that the MA mini triathalon runs. I just want to have the option to say I can be on a team. I could either bik... Read more
