Hello Sparkies! Have you heard of the 21 Day Fix? In a nutshell it's a set of 7 workouts on DVD along with color-coded containers for portion control, and an eating plan to follow. I am typically not one for gimmicky weight-loss programs bu... Read more
Do I want this bad enough?

Earlier today as I was doing housework my mind started to wander (because whose mind doesn't wander when doing housework?) and I began thinking about why I am at such a standstill. And I wondered if -- for whatever reason -- I don't want this as... Read more

Ahhhh! So I am late with the blog this week. Yesterday was Mother's Day and we were out and about for most of the day. I took 3 days off from working out (NOT good!) but today I kept my 20-minute date with Jillian. Overall, as I reflect on the p... Read more

It has been a good week. I still haven't lost any weight but there have been many positive changes. I can't explain it exactly but in many small yet significant ways I am starting to feel like the motivated woman who once lost 60 pounds. All it ... Read more

Wednesday, April 22, 2015      9 comments

I can't believe how fast time flies but I have been on SparkPeople since 2007. I joined in January with a sluggish start. Maybe I wasn't quite ready to embark on the journey right then. I had 60 pounds to lose. There was SO MUCH to look at on th... Read more
Stealing some computer time
Friday, November 09, 2012      5 comments

Yes, I am still here. Tracking food. Tracking fitness. What I am still bad about is keeping up with blogs, groups and message boards. I don't get to play on the computer all that much these days. As such, it's not easy to Spark via phone except ... Read more

Respect for my body
Tuesday, May 31, 2011      7 comments

Last week was a tough week. Without going into all the details, I'll just say that my body failed me. Or, quite possibly, I failed it. I'll never know, but more than likely it was a combination of both. All last week, I took a break from w... Read more

When I am at the gym and not taking a fitness class, I like to listen to Jillian Michaels' podcast to pass the time on the machines. Recently she had Bob Harper on the show, which was cool! They said something to a caller that really kind of h... Read more

Saturday was the Monument Avenue 10k in Richmond. I ran it last year; it was the first (and only) 10k I ever ran. It is such a fun race!! I ran with my husband and brother-in- law. Ironically, we were all in Richmond this past weekend ... Read more
