Back on Spark
Sunday, June 06, 2010      4 comments

I am finding myself spending less time on the computer lately, which is a good thing. Unfortunately, this has also kept me off of Sparkpeople for quite some time. However, I feel that it is time for a return. In part of the down time from S... Read more
Childhood Photo
Friday, April 09, 2010      3 comments

On my Facebook page, I have an application that automatically posts a Photo of the Day for me. Each day it's like a little surprise when I log on to facebook and see one of my old photos that I may have forgotten about. I get to see family, frie... Read more
Fashion Show
Saturday, March 27, 2010      4 comments

Today I participated in the Fashion Bug Fashion Show for the second time. It was a wonderful and fun time. It is great being around so many women who feel confident about themselves in beautiful new clothing. I sported a peach top and khakis, an... Read more
Doing Better with Exercise but Worse with Diet
Sunday, March 21, 2010      3 comments

I have both a positive and a negative to blog about today, and they are both in the title of this entry. My positive is about my exercise. I am doing a lot better with exercise lately. I still haven't been back to the gym (I need to cancel my me... Read more
Seeking a Stationary Bike
Friday, January 29, 2010      2 comments

Well, I think it's finally time to seek out a stationary bike. I have a membership at a gym, but I can't stand the crowds, and that place is busy every minute it is open. It has a pool, which is the main reason I joined, but almost every time I'... Read more
Pasta Lovers Unite!
Monday, January 18, 2010      3 comments

I think pasta gets an awful rap. People say it has too many carbs and too many calories. Me, I think pasta is absolutely fantastic, and I'm not afraid to admit it. As a vegetarian, I probably eat more pasta than most people do, and I can't imagi... Read more
Decisions (NOT Resolutions!) for 2010
Saturday, January 02, 2010      4 comments

Hello, SparkPeople! Now we have reached 2010, and many (well, probably all) of us are hoping that this will be a wonderful year. I know I am! Because of this, I am not making any resolutions for myself this year. All resolutions lead to is disap... Read more
Body Falling Apart
Sunday, October 25, 2009      3 comments

Lately it's felt like my body has been falling apart. I haven't been to the gym in a month because of this. My left shoulder was killing me fora month, and then my right hip started hurting horribly. Just walking around at work was hard enough, ... Read more
Setting Up to Make a Comeback
Friday, October 16, 2009      4 comments

I have been absent from Sparkpeople for over two weeks now. I've been having good times and bad. It was great visiting with family and going to a wedding for high school friends- I caught up with people I hadn't seen in seven years. But unfortun... Read more

I went through a bout of depression in college, and my life hasn't been the same since. I've never been a social butterfly, but since that time I have had a lot of trouble making friends at all. I've become much less of a risk-taker, I'm overly... Read more

I am getting very frustrated. I lost ten pounds since I started, and I've already hit a plateau where I've been stuck for several weeks. I'm not sure how much more I can push myself. Gym 3-5 days a week for cardio, 2-3 days a week for weight lif... Read more
In Between Jobs
Tuesday, September 01, 2009      2 comments

I was in between jobs for over two weeks. This may not sound like much (especially in this economy), but it was enough to derail me from my health attempts. Sitting at home all day (except for when I went shopping, which was unfortunately freque... Read more
Return to the Gym
Sunday, August 23, 2009      3 comments

Prior to my wedding (back in 11/2007) I joined a small local gym. One of the reasons that I liked it was because it had all of the amenities of a large gym without the large gym prices or crowds. When I say all, I mean all- cardio equipment, wei... Read more

I have been staying with my in-laws for almost a week, but I returned home to my husband Tuesday night. Since then, it's been a battle for me. At my in-laws, it was easy to stick to my diet. It wasn't that I had support; rather, I was eating mo... Read more
Set Up for Success, Even with a Failure
Friday, August 14, 2009      3 comments

I pretty much set myself up for failure this evening. I am out of town visiting my in-laws while doing some paperwork for an old employer. I'm staying with them, since it's free and we get along pretty well. When I left work today, I went to th... Read more
