The second week of the Falling For Fitness Challenge is almost over. I liked this week's challenge of drinking 16 oz of water first thing in the morning three days this week. I often have coffee or tea in the morning but I don't usually have my ... Read more

It has taken me a while to get through the Couch to 5K program, but I think I can now safely officially announce that I've graduated! For those who aren't familiar with it, the program helps non-runners get from running for one minute at a time ... Read more

I'm super excited to be participating in the Falling For Fitness challenge! My favourite thing about SparkPeople is meeting new friends and knowing that we're all here for each other through our ups and downs. It's going to be fun working togeth... Read more
Onederland, here I come!
Monday, October 15, 2012      5 comments

With only half a pound to go, I'm almost back in Onederland. I can't wait to get there! I spent a month or two there last year before my life went kinda crazy and it's going to feel so good to get back there. I can't believe how well the ... Read more
Making progress!

I've been doing the Weight Watchers online program for 11 days now and it's going really well. I don't know why, but it's easier for me to eat within my points allowance than it is for me to count calories. It's probably just because it's a chan... Read more
Yesterday's appointment...

Well, I saw my doctor yesterday and had my physical. I told her about how things have been going for me lately - mostly the fact that I've increased my exercise but I'm still not losing much of anything. She asked me lots of questions and she su... Read more
Nervous...

Tomorrow I will be going to see my doctor for my first full physical in over two years. I'm nervous about facing the cold, hard facts and hearing what she has to say. I've been terrible about eating for the past couple of weeks and I feel lik... Read more
Shakin' it!
Thursday, August 23, 2012      2 comments

My hands are still bugging me a bit from the surgeries in June and July so I haven't re-started the C25K program yet. I jog with my little guy in a stroller so I need to wait until I can push it consistently for at least 40 minutes before I try ... Read more

I am still recovering from my recent hand surgeries but I'm getting back into the swing of things. I put on 7 pounds since May and I've managed to shed 3 last week. This was a nice surprise. I knew that I was going in the right direction but I h... Read more
Gearing up for a restart...
Tuesday, July 10, 2012      1 comments

I've been MIA again, but this time it's for health reasons. I knew that I would be having carpal tunnel surgery on both of my wrists this year, but I didn't expect it to happen so fast! After a year of waiting, I saw the specialist at the beginn... Read more
Username change...
Monday, May 28, 2012      2 comments

Hello Spark Friends, It's me Hilary. I've changed my username to Prairie_Mum. To make a long story short, my SIL has been snooping around online and making unwelcome comments on my posts in other groups where I was using the same username. I f... Read more
A discouraging experience...
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      7 comments

I've been MIA for a little over a month now, so I figured I'd better own up to what's been going on. I was making fantastic progress with the C25K program. I completed four 25 minute runs, and while I was aware that I was very slow, I felt ... Read more

I'm running baby!
Monday, March 19, 2012      2 comments

Today I completed Week 4 Day 1 of the Couch to 5K program. I used the NHS Choices podcast and at the end the narrator pointed out that I spent more time running than walking this session. That's amazing! I'm very slow, but I didn't set out to... Read more
