Take the First Step...errr....ROW!
Hello Spark World!
So yesterday I accomplished something great. I finished my MaROWathon at my gym.
"What is that?" you might be thinking.
Well that is 26.2 miles, or 42,000 meters of rowing on a row machine.
The challenge ... Read more
I've always been a talker...my husband would tend to say I "over-share" or he likes the term "diarrhea mouth," (eewww...gross) and I have to admit that it's true. Even in my writing.
But one place I've been thinking a lot about talking is ... Read more
Maintenance is TOUGH!
I am back for my annual blog post and check in (lol--I don't really want it to be, it just seems to be my cycle) and talk about what I've been up to.
When you last left me, I was 155, size 8 and really excited to be remotely... Read more
Back with VICTORY!
Hey Spark People World....
I have to admit--I have been gone from SP for a very LONG time. Not that I meant to, it just kind of fell out of my routine. And usually when I have in the past been off of SP, I have been away because my healthy ... Read more
Here wagon, wagon, wagon....
Wow. So I always seem to find my way back to Spark People, I think simply because of the positively. Since my son has been born, I've told myself that I "was ready to get fit again," but my actions spoke louder than my words.
I had been st... Read more
I've written this blog many times, about being "back" after a long time, re-dedicating myself to my health journey....only to disappear for months, rinse & repeat.
So why is this different? I'm actually asking for help, which is not easy fo... Read more
Back at it!
Hello Spark Land!
I have not been a very good SparkFriend....staying away from the site for so long. I was looking at old blog posts, old friends and just realizing that though you may not think about it, life moves on weather you are ther... Read more
Wow...Sometimes you need a reminder!
I was confused this morning when my inbox was flooded with SP mail messages. "Huh?" my fuzzy-non-awake brain thought. Then I saw it--I was reposted as Motivator of the Day.
This really reminded me how far I've come and where I am now. I've... Read more
As I put my 7-month old down for his nap, I came in and saw a folder of pics from when he was first born. I started looking at him and I am amazed at how fast he's grown and how big he's gotten.
If I could have done the whole pregnancy ove... Read more
Woo Hoo! I lost!
So, I show a 5 pound loss, but I never tracked my first 3-pound loss. I'm not sure when I last stepped on the scale, but I know for sure I've lost 2 pounds within the last two weeks. I'll take it!
I'm doing well with getting cardio in at le... Read more
Been a Little Down
Warning: This is a mopey post, and I'm sorry. I just need to get some of these feelings out. Feel free to not read if you're not interested.
I'll admit it, I have been a little down, frustrated and angry. I'm not sure where all these emotio... Read more
I did it!
If you don't know, I live in Texas. Houston to be exact. And we are known (amongst other cowboy-like things) for our heat. Houston also has bad humidity.
In the past I have used that as an excuse. Even though I had a gym membership and all... Read more
Summer is HERE!
Well, Spark Friends,
This is the magical time of year that every teacher patiently (or not so patiently) awaits--the summer! Woo hoo! I made it kicking and screaming (mainly due to sleep deprivation with having a baby) but I made it non-the... Read more
After I gained my 56lbs during pregnancy, I kind of got stuck after losing about 23 pounds/fluid. I wasn't eating junk, but because of breastfeeding, I was hungry ALL the time.
I went to my doctor to get checked up for my insulin... Read more
