What’s important
Tuesday, February 27, 2018      3 comments

Two years ago today I started wheezing. Four days later I went to the doctor after I got lightheaded and lost my breath reading a story to the two year old kids in my class. My first bad asthma flare. I hate to say not much has changed. Th... Read more
Another year older

So today is my birthday 🎂. I’ve been gone forever, or so it seems. It’s been an interesting time for me. After 6-8 asthma flares in the last 2 years I was finally sent to a pulmonologist. I am slowly getting back to being able to walk witho... Read more
So Cofunsed

Today I went for my first pulmonary function test. I was diagnosed with asthma 20 years ago and have been on various medications off and on since then. Two weeks ago I ended up on steroids to deal with the worse asthma flair I have ever had. ... Read more
Break's Over
Thursday, January 21, 2016      3 comments

So I took break from SparkPeople and everything without even realizing it. Sure, I'd log in every day and get my fitness minutes in, but I wasn't really "here." I guess I just let life get to me. Well, I'm back and focusing solely on SP. ... Read more

Thursday, October 15, 2015      6 comments

I am determined to be a success story with my weight. I got depressed dealing with infertility and needing to realign my dreams, but I will not give up! My husband and I are on a waiting list for adoption. We expect to be on the waiting l... Read more
I finally did it

I finally went to the doctor to discuss fertility. She was wonderful and is wasting no time. All I can do now is wait to hear from them about blood work and maybe a few more tests to see where we are. My husband has had 4 baby dreams in the p... Read more

I swore I would never join any weightloss program that I had to pay for, but today I did. I have racked up more fitness points in May than any other single month. I have been exercising in the morning, taking a mile walk on my lunch break, and... Read more

Next weekend I am going to be in the car for 5-6 hours on Saturday and Monday. I plan on using my bike Saturday morning before we head out, which really shouldn't be a problem since my husband isn't known for being an early riser. I should be ... Read more
Happy Mother's Day
Sunday, May 10, 2015      2 comments

This is the first Mother's Day in a long time I felt happy. Even though I couldn't be with my mom today (I'll see her Memorial Day weekend), I was happy and peaceful. I still feel anxious wondering if I'll ever have a baby of my own and I stre... Read more
Still hopeful (I think)

Okay, so I have absolutely no problem getting my fitness minutes in. I almost always get 1000 minutes/month and have done so for the last 3 years. With my fitness tracker I am already at 647 minutes for the month of May - and it's only the 7th... Read more

Today I outdid myself, but I feel good! I rode my exercise bike for 70 minutes waiting for my husband to get motivated to take his shower this morning. Then I did another 20 while he was in the shower. I can't just sit and relax so I decided ... Read more
The downside to my fitness tracker
Friday, May 01, 2015      1 comments

I have had my Spark Fitness Tracker for a week now and already have a love/hate relationship with it. I'm getting used to the fact that when we take the kids for a walk at work I have to keep my feet moving. We walked for about 1/2 hour and du... Read more
This time will be different
Saturday, April 25, 2015      3 comments

How many times do we try to lose weight and fail, only to try again saying "this time will be different?" Too many in my case. I always start strong, believing this will be the time I finally reach my goals, only to hit a bump and give up. ... Read more
