Taking it one week at a time.
Monday, September 17, 2012      4 comments

I've always been skinny, but never healthy, so "health and fitness" always meant getting healthy and not worrying about my weight. I gained 25lbs with my daughter and since having her I've lost 10lbs, and that came off naturally within the firs... Read more
Just a Thought, For Now
Friday, July 20, 2012      5 comments

I had a thought yesterday, inspired by getting back on SP. I haven't run -- in a race or otherwise -- in about a year. My last race was two St. Paddy's Days ago and the last time I set foot on a tredmill was last summer. My husband, who's bee... Read more
Soon to be a family of three!
Monday, July 16, 2012      11 comments

I can't believe how long it's been since I've been active on SparkPeople! I was once obsessed with the site and with working out. A friend of mine convinced me to join Facebook and I was probably the last person in the free world to do so. Th... Read more
Swallowed Up
Sunday, November 27, 2011      2 comments

It's been over three months since I blogged...or since I've really been active on SP for that matter. I admit that I've been swallowed up...gobbled up by a new FB account, eaten up by work stress, and devoured by meaningless activities. ... Read more
Jinxed myself! Let's try this again, shall we?
Friday, August 19, 2011      0 comments

Earlier in the week I posted my workout goals for the week. This is the first time I've done that in forever and I think I jinxed myself. I had the worse exercise week since I began my streak five weeks ago. I wasn't able to go to the gym on ... Read more
Exercise Plan for 8/14-8/20
Monday, August 15, 2011      1 comments

I've been inspired to blog about my exercise plan for the week (thanks, ANNE7X7). Tracking my food and exercise online is a great tool that I use to manage my calories, but I think writing up a plan will help a lot too. It'll also help on days... Read more
An update on me. :o)
Monday, August 08, 2011      7 comments

This summer I was given the gift of time. Since school is out for the summer, I've been blessed with the chance to really have some time off and not work. It's a luxury, I know. I decided not to waste this gift and created a routine for m... Read more
Chore Wars...who wins in your home?
Monday, August 01, 2011      6 comments

A friend of mine told me about an article in Time magazine about "chore wars". I didn't read the full article online, but the synopsis was about the balance of household chores among husbands and wives. That got me thinking about how chores ar... Read more
Gym Pet Peeves -- What's yours?
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      6 comments

I've been working out consistently for almost two weeks now. I'm proud that I go to the gym every weekday for an hour. I'm proud that I put in a real workout and leave dripping wet (either in sweat or water, depending on whether it was a swim ... Read more
My vacation helped me find my Spark.
Thursday, July 21, 2011      3 comments

This week I got my Spark back and I'm determined to keep it this time! Yay! My recent trip to Europe changed my ideas about food and being active. European portions are much smaller and people walk everywhere. And yet I had no desire to ... Read more
Cheerio, Bonjourno, Bonjour, and Buenos Dias! (long vacation-reporting blog!)
Sunday, July 17, 2011      0 comments

I'm still basking in the glow of the best vacation of my LIFE! This past Wednesday my husband and I returned from 13 AMAZING days in Europe. My husband, Ken, had gone to Paris, London, and Amsterdam a few months before we met...and has had... Read more
Disappointment
Monday, March 07, 2011      10 comments

Back in early January I emailed my family and friends about my upcoming 5K. I had signed up for a St. Patty's Day race and hoped everyone could come out in support. For the Turkey Trot we did back in November, a whole group came out to run an... Read more
Help! I'm starting to go under...!
Sunday, February 20, 2011      6 comments

I'm running out of steam and I'm not sure how to get my umph back. I'd been following a 10K training program I found online. I had printed off the plan and posted it on the fridge. Everything was going well until about two weeks ago. I skipp... Read more
The medicine, the hot date, and the boring Tuesday
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      1 comments

I did not want to run today. My bi-weekly, scheduled interval run that I've been doing for over a month. I would have given anything to skip it. I felt like a toddler throwing a tantrum. I didn't want to do it. I didn't want to go. I went ... Read more
Valentine's Weekend in NYC
Sunday, February 13, 2011      7 comments

Yesterday my husband surprised me with a trip to NYC. (We live about 40 minutes away by train.) My husband is a big history guy and he loves museums, so I had a feeling that was part of the plan. I was right. We started our day off wit... Read more
