Okay, I have to do EVERYTHING that I can to put myself back on the working out (hard) every day train. I have been "exercising", but I'm not impressed with the effort I've been putting in. But the results have been unreal. I didn't even "... Read more
My Week
Sunday, April 08, 2012      4 comments

So, this week has been a little spotty. I would tell you I was sick - I was. I would tell you I was tired - I was. I would tell you I didn't have the mental energy to push myself to be my best - I didn't. But none of that really matters.... Read more
The Ends of March

Welp, March is over, and I now, officially, have one full month logged here on Spark!! (I started in the middle/end of February, so I don't count that...) But anyway, it's the end of March, and I spent a little time yesterday, going over th... Read more
Just Call Me The Queen of Excuses
Thursday, March 29, 2012      8 comments

You need one? I've got one. Any situation, set the scene, and I can give you an excuse that will have the people you're telling it to start giving you more reasons to use the excuse. I'm not kidding. It's not just that I come up with them ver... Read more
Mind vs Body
Wednesday, March 28, 2012      4 comments

Yesterday, I was tired. I was fed up. I felt very apathetic about a good many things. I didn't want to exercise. I knew that if I didn't exercise, I would have to stay at the low end of my calorie range. I knew that my Spirited Underdogs ha... Read more
monday, monday
Monday, March 26, 2012      3 comments

It's just another monday morning(almost afternoon). I'm feeling good. Really up. My knee is sore in a way it hasn't been in a while, so I'm slightly discouraged about that - it makes it harder to run on it. But in other news, I (accident... Read more

Spring Break was AWESOME. It was so good. Yes, I had some food issues. But that's sort of to be expected, and considering all the factors, I think I did pretty well. I'm back home, back to the grind, and not liking it. Haha! I wanted t... Read more

Food Woes
Wednesday, March 21, 2012      5 comments

I've been trying to figure out - ever since I had a really great conversation with my mom about it - how to sever the emotional ties I have with food. Have any of you found a way that works? Or even a place to start? I'm doing just fine a... Read more
More Spring Break
Tuesday, March 20, 2012      4 comments

You know, it's funny: Spring break - for me - has only ever been a break from school/work for me. I've never taken a break from "life". even when I was younger, it was always a chance for me to be more active, and this year is no different. ... Read more

Day one of Spring Break
Sunday, March 18, 2012      4 comments

We did a HUGE hike on Saturday morning. 7.5 miles, more than 500 feet overall elevation change, but more up and downs that just that. In 3.5 hours (maybe less). It was AMAZING!!! I was a little anxious. I hadn't made it to my goal of 23... Read more
Spring Challenge challenge
Friday, March 16, 2012      6 comments

Why have my diets not worked in the past? Mostly because I was lazy. Also, I didn't equate the physical activity I did nearly every day when I was fit to living an active life. I think I also just figured "I can do it [get healthy] later"... Read more

Short update
Tuesday, March 13, 2012      4 comments

I'm doing quite well - I've been "unplugged" for the last couple of days, but have been doing well still! On Sunday/Monday I weighed in at 238, another 1.4 pounds down. I wish it was bigger/more, but that's a good number for a good week. ... Read more
