How's Your New Year Going So Far?
Tuesday, January 19, 2016      6 comments

It's been a busy time around here since 1/1. We are getting our kitchen renovated, so things are kind of in upheaval, but it's all working out. I still have a refrigerator hooked up, and a working microwave, but that was about it for food prep... Read more
Off to a great start!

I've really been feeling on track so far since the new year. Working out with the trainer three times a week at the gym (twice with a small group, once one-on-one) has really pushed me to work out way harder than I usually do! That, in turn, k... Read more

So my recommitment to getting back to goal is going really well so far! I took two free small group personal training sessions at my gym with a young personal trainer who is very motivating. I also had a free one-on-one session with him, and I... Read more

Life has been hectic, but good, and I haven't made the time to keep up with Spark as much as I used to. I haven't tracked my exercise, blogged, or participated much, other than one maintenance challenge and "lurking" around. Around the same ti... Read more

I haven't been on Spark as much, but I do lurk around when I can! I started trying to lose weight and get more fit about four years ago, in preparation o... Read more

Sunday, November 02, 2014      6 comments

I heard something this weekend about how social media affects teenaged girls' perceptions of themselves. The person speaking said that the danger of Facebook (and, I would imagine, Twitter and other social media) is that girls get a skewed view... Read more
Summer Fun
Monday, July 21, 2014      4 comments

Well, today it's back to reality around our house, or at least our summer reality. My husband was off for two weeks and we had a great time. The first week, we just did a "staycation" and went to the local beach, ate out a lot, and generally e... Read more

The best time of year for me-the beginning of the summer! Although I've been off from my part-time teaching job since mid-May, due to an illness in my family, I haven't really been doing my usual summer stuff. I have been exercising, though. ... Read more

My Third 5K Tomorrow!
Saturday, May 10, 2014      3 comments

I'm really excited that tomorrow, Mother's Day, will be my third 5K Race. The cool part is that my first ever 5K race was last Mother's Day. I started running at the end of March last year, just due to stress, and found out that I loved it. M... Read more
