I am truly hoping that 2019 is a better year, health wise, for me. I lost my mojo about mid 2018 and gained back all the weight I had previously lost. The health and fitness roller coaster is real and it is really hard to get off the ride! I ha... Read more
Starting Over...Again!
Wednesday, August 08, 2018      3 comments

I haven't posted a blog in a long time because frankly, I've been ashamed of myself and felt that I didn't have any encouraging words to say in the midst of my own failure. For several months now I've been struggling with motivation, food choice... Read more

Wednesday, January 03, 2018      5 comments

The year 2017 was stressful in a lot of ways for me and many of my Spark friends. Life has a way of knocking you down when you least expect it. I challenge you to approach 2018 with an attitude of gratitude and focus on what is good in your life... Read more
My Christmas Wish...

Do It Anyway
Thursday, June 15, 2017      4 comments

Today marks one year since I joined Spark and started getting serious about my health and wellness. I would have liked to be able to say that I met my goal and have been in maintenance land for awhile but that is not the case. I started this jo... Read more
New Year's Resolutions...Not this Year
Tuesday, January 03, 2017      2 comments

Reflecting on the year just passed I found a few things I wish I had done differently but all in all it was a pretty good year. Did I reach my desired goal weight? No but I did lose 25 lbs so that's a good thing. Did I become a marathon runner? ... Read more
