I did it. Week 1, Day 2 of Couch to 5K is in the books. How did it feel? HARDER than day 1. I expected it to not be easy, even day 1 wasn't easy. I had moments in the last half of the run intervals where I did NOT think I could go any farth... Read more

I've been off SparkPeople for a few days again. I can't let myself give up on it again. I'm starting Couch to 5K for the second time today. I started it back in September, right before the MOST stressful week of our year...BAD idea. So now I... Read more

I have to keep reminding myself that any small step I take, any little change, any moment that I stop to focus on myself is something that will help me achieve my goal. YES, my goal is to lose 75 pounds...but my real achievement will be the new... Read more

It's been over a year since I used Sparkpeople for the first time. I lost some weight the first time around (after the first of the year) but I've put it all back on (and then some). I'm frustrated. I'm tired of living this way. I'm tired of... Read more

Well, I'd have to say that I'm adjusting pretty well. I really like the nutrition tracker and it has been very helpful for me to use this to plan the next day's meals and snacks. Planning (HEALTHY planning) is not something I've paid much atte... Read more
