I was feeling great when I woke up this morning. As I was stretching in the bathroom, I could see how lean I'm getting and it was wonderful. Then I stepped on the scale and despite slipping last weekend, I managed to lose a pound. I can't ask fo... Read more
Change it Up

I totally slipped last weekend by eating too many carbs so I don't think I'll see a loss this week. Oh well, that's what happens when you're careless. I was stressed out last weekend because of everything with Bailey and Nick, but this weekend w... Read more
Rainy days

Another Wednesday, another much needed break from cardio. I'm starting to think that it has more to do with the gloomy weather than daylight saving time that's making me tired...though it could be a mix of both. The Hudson river is misting today... Read more
Stupid Daylight Saving

It was very difficult to make myself get up this morning. I guess my body is used to it being a little bit light out and now that we've changed the clocks, it's completely dark again. Hopefully I'll adjust soon...it was so bad this morning I *ga... Read more
Getting back on track

I started to slip a little this weekend and by slip I mean I let myself have frozen yogurt two nights in a row. I haven't had it in so long. It's really the chocolate in the fudge ripple that got me. Mmm. Chocolate. Anyway, I'm back on the stric... Read more
Stressful Day

Today started out great. I weighed in under 170 for the first time since last March. I had a great workout and went to my friend's St. Patty's party. Instead of taking the light rail back to my apartment, I walked back to get some more exercise.... Read more
Powerful Song

I was listening to the radio this morning and Miley Cyrus was live in the studios. After a brief interview, she played a song for a small group of fans that they had invited up. As I listened to the lyrics I was truly moved because I think it ex... Read more
Running hard

For some reason this morning, I couldn't completely catch my breath during my sprints. I had to modify my workout a little bit, but I got them all in. I can't wait to be able to run outdoors. A new trainer has been sitting at the desk for the pa... Read more

Thank you to all of my Sparkfriends who reached out to me about my dad. Your love and caring never ceases to amaze me and I'm so thankful to have people like you in my life! Hanging out with Nick recently has certainly been a boost to my eg... Read more
Rough Weekend

The weekend started off pretty great. I went home to see my siblings, I weighed in at under 170 (though my parents' scale is always much less than mine at the apartment) and I had a great workout. However, nothing could prepare me for what my da... Read more

I weighed in a day early because I'm going home tonight after work. I'm down to 171.6 pounds! That's down 1.8 pounds from last week. I know that after today I'll be down a little more. This is just the motivation I needed to eat sensibly this we... Read more

On the whole yesterday was a pretty good day. I curbed my hunger during fasting by having a lot of tea throughout the day. I had some healthy tuna salad for lunch - the first time I've ever tried making it and it was delicious! I decided to take... Read more
Lenten Observations

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent and 40 days until Easter. When I was growing up, I was always told that I had to give up something similar to how Jesus gave his life for those he loved. However, starting last year, I decided that i... Read more

A positive about spending so much time with Nick this weekend was that I had little time to think about food and how much I'd like to snack on it. Considering it's the time leading up to TOM this is a welcome distraction. I weighed in at 173.4 o... Read more
Feeling bad for my puppy

This weekend was very busy and even more fun. Friday night I ended up going out for a few drinks with the guy from the dog park - let's call him Nick. I usually don't drink, but it was fun to just sit and talk for a few hours. I didn't end up go... Read more
