It has been a really long time since I have been on SparkPeople. I got busy - busy studying, running kids around, busy with many things. But, the studying is done and I passed (YAY ME!!!) and now I can use that time to focus on taking off what... Read more
OMG - I did a 5k tonight on the treadmill!

I did it! It was a run walk but I finished it in less than a 15 min. mile. I used to die at 2 miles at a 15+ minute pace and I did 3.16 in 46 minutes! It felt good to me for many reasons. A. I didn't die. B. I was pretty consistent... Read more
Today was a bad food day...

Holy cow. Didn't seem like I ate that much but what I did was "expensive!" The kids had friends over last night and I made them belgian waffles. Yes, I had one (and a half later too...) Then I was pretty good for lunch but I just had a bunch... Read more
I finally met a mini goal!

I have been trying for MONTHS to get down past the next "0" on the scale, only to have "Aunt Martha" (or Flo or whatever you want to call it ) show up, or the holidays or an exam or whatever...... Well, I finally did it this week! I am so exci... Read more

That sounds like something of a confession - well - it is. I haven't been tracking, I haven't made great choices and because of that I am up about 4 pounds. Not liking that at all. I have a potential trip to Florida in April and a summer by t... Read more

I think the last time I was out here was last week. I think. Life has been crazy. Running here, running there. I am doing some volunteer work right now that is demanding a whole lot more time than I thought it would. I think I went through ... Read more

I was updating my status for the day and noticed my "Goals" at the bottom of my Sparkpage...Wow, I had forgotten they were there. They are still my goals. 1. Eat Healthy - doing that for the most part - always can do better though. 2.... Read more
The weekend getaway is here.

It really has been a good weekend. I was dreading it because I remember from years gone by the food piled all over the counter and dips and all kinds of stuff in the refrigerator and then we ate out to boot. This year is a little different as ... Read more
One week to go until a weekend getaway.

I am getting the "Heck outta Dodge" next weekend and I have one week of really good eating before it potentially all goes down the drain in one weekend. I make this trek every year with the girls and have come to love/hate this weekend. The pe... Read more
There I go again...

Ok, why is it that anytime I start losing weight and someone tells me I am looking good or notice I have lost weight my mind just goes backwards and I start gaining weight? Wouldn't you think it would be positive encouragement that would make m... Read more
My daughter said "Whoa, those pants are getting big on you!"

They aren't really but they are better. It was just nice getting some recognition. My two young kids have often made comments like "Mom, your butt is really big". So when she said "Whoa, those pants are getting big on you" it was pretty cool.... Read more
Is it too early for spring fever?

Where has the time gone? I can't believe it is almost the end of February. After a week and a half of sick kids and swim meets (not at the same time), I am finally getting back to normal - whatever that is. I can say the normal workout schedu... Read more
Week 3 - I see progress but then again I don't...

Week 3 - I pictured myself down at least 6 lbs by now. I have watched what I eat - except for this weekend but it wasn't as horrible as it could have been (almost). I have been working out regularly so why don't I feel thinner or the scale be ... Read more
Busy week didn't drag me down with it

Week two of my journey is over. It was a busy one - kid stuff, volunteer stuff, trip out of town - all of it lasting longer than expected so I didn't get quite as much workout time in as I would have liked to. However, I did watch what I ate a... Read more
Happy I worked out

Today is my first blog entry - haven't done this before. I was going to start by writing out my goals. They are the usual - work out more, eat less/better blah blah blah. I do tend to ask myself - why do I want to do this? Simply put - I am ... Read more
