A Small Success
Sunday, August 10, 2014      2 comments

I've lost 6 pounds so far, and am excited with the notion that a mere four more pounds will give me a ten pound loss! I'm finally out of the 270s (where I've been since almost the beginning of the year) and hope to breeze down through the 260s! ... Read more
New Beginnings
Thursday, August 07, 2014      0 comments

Over these past few months, so many wonderful things have been falling into place for me. I graduated college with honors, landed a teaching job in my district of choice (even in the same school and grade level that I wanted - truly my dream pos... Read more
I Have a Confession.
Saturday, October 12, 2013      4 comments

This week has been *horrible*. Because I've had an extremely busy schedule and the beginnings of stress, (those are my excuses, and I'm sticking to them!) I've let myself go these past several days. As a result, I'm not weighing this week. I've ... Read more
Happy Fall! : )
Sunday, October 06, 2013      2 comments

Fall seems to finally be here! The weather is cool and feels like it should for an October afternoon. I love this time of year! And just as equally exciting is the fact that I lost 2 pounds last week! Only one more pound to go and I can say that... Read more
Successful September : )
Sunday, September 29, 2013      2 comments

This last week of September hasn't been my best, as far as healthiness is concerned. I hosted a mini birthday party for a friend, and there was fattening food and chocolate cake involved. And the weather has been nasty and that's put a damper on... Read more
In a Word, Dedication.
Monday, September 16, 2013      3 comments

Dedicated is something that I obviously have not been in the past month. Since the last time I was on Spark People I gained back the 4.25 pounds that I had lost, and let my exercising fall by the way side. I might have made up a few excuses here... Read more
Success and a Happy Dance
Sunday, August 11, 2013      5 comments

Yesterday at the track, I was able to jog a quarter of a mile without stopping. Twice! It may not seem like much (especially if you're a seasoned jogger/runner) but for this girl, it was awesome! I walked a lap to warm up, and then jogged all th... Read more
Stuck in a Rut.
Thursday, August 08, 2013      3 comments

Well, I'm into my second month of trying to lose weight, and so far have managed to lose only 4.5 pounds. Now don't get me wrong. I'd much rather weigh 4.5 pounds less, than be what I was before. Every little bit counts. I just know that it's ti... Read more
So Long, Sweets!
Monday, August 05, 2013      4 comments

In managing to maintain my 4.5 pound loss so far, I decided that I needed a challenge to help me step up my game and get some more weight off. I have a major sweet tooth. Sweets? Sweets are just part of living and breathing. But as of Wednesday ... Read more
Hello Again!
Tuesday, July 23, 2013      2 comments

Well, it's been a week since I've written a blog. I am in the process of packing up my apartment to make a short move, and have recently (over this past weekend) been helping a family member that just had surgery. It had been a while since I've ... Read more
Psst. You. Yes, You...
Tuesday, July 16, 2013      6 comments

I just wanted to let you know, that you are amazing for being on Spark People and desiring to change your life and get your health in order. It's hard, but you're doing it. You've made progress, probably some mistakes too. But you can never give... Read more
Back on the Band Wagon
Wednesday, July 10, 2013      2 comments

These past couple of days have been a little rocky. I haven't worked out like I should have, and have eaten a little more than necessary. However, today has been a turn around, and I feel confident that the rest of my week will be stellar. Part ... Read more
A Victory is a Victory, No Matter How Small
Monday, July 08, 2013      4 comments

After one week of this journey, I've lost half a pound. Like I said in my title, no matter how small, it's still a victory and that makes me happy. It's allowed me to see that although I'm doing all the right things, I can still continue to make... Read more
Guilty until Proven Innocent
Sunday, July 07, 2013      6 comments

When I'm trying to eat right and lose weight, and know that I have goals to reach, I feel guilty when I have a snack to eat that I know is not healthy. Even if it's in moderation, and not every day, I feel bad for eating it. I know that nothing ... Read more
Food and the 4th
Thursday, July 04, 2013      2 comments

First of all, a big Happy Fourth of July to everyone! And a great big Thank You to all that are serving in the military (or who have served). I appreciate all that you do for this country! My family and I celebrated with, well... food. But... Read more
