Settling in to 2020
Monday, January 13, 2020      4 comments

I haven't blogged in a bit and thought it was time to. "Surviving" the holiday season went pretty well, I think. I put on about 3lbs but have already managed to get that back off plus another half pound. I think what helped is that I didn't put ... Read more
Self Sabotage
Monday, November 18, 2019      5 comments

Ugh. Why do we self sabotage? Why? I've been back at this for 2 months now and have really toed the line for a good 90% of it (hey, no one is perfect!). I'm down 17lbs, but more importantly, have lost a total of almost 12 inches overall in the l... Read more

I started running again yesterday. Yup. Logged my first official run in a C25K program! It was extremely humbling to have to start from square one again but afterwards I felt strong, and... accomplished. Two things I have not felt physically (or... Read more
Week 3 done and on to Week 4
Monday, October 07, 2019      1 comments

I had a good week last week. I was on point with exercise and am getting tighter and tighter on the nutrition. I find that I am pretty good with getting in my needed protein for the day, but am consistently low on carbs and a little high on the ... Read more
Week 2 Review
Monday, September 30, 2019      3 comments

I had a reeeallly good nutrition week last week. I feel like I am starting to get back into the groove again. It took me a bit to remember how to properly meal plan and set portions. I started weighing and measuring absolutely everything that go... Read more
Back to Square one - Week 1
Monday, September 23, 2019      4 comments

I logged back onto Spark one week ago after being away for quite some time. My last blog entry on here was in July 2011. At that time I was about 15lbs from my goal weight, going through a divorce and my life was a little bit upside down. It see... Read more
Life is hard
Tuesday, July 19, 2011      5 comments

It's been a tough few weeks for me. My ex and I finally moved out of our home last week and it was really hard letting go. I've had a tough few weeks of major changes and adjustments. I've been trying my absolute best to stay on plan and for ... Read more
Bring on the summer!
Tuesday, June 21, 2011      3 comments

Hey everyone! I apologize for not blogging. I didn't do my usual "results" blog at the end of May because, honestly, there was just nothing to report. I've been bouncing the same 3 lbs around on the scale for what feels like an eternity a... Read more
My Kick-butt circuit
Monday, May 23, 2011      3 comments

Due to several requests to share the sweaty kick-butt circuit I created for myself, I had to oblige!! I love my sparkfriends so much and am happy to share this little routine with you. It's going to be my new "go-to" workout when I want to get... Read more
We've broken up
Sunday, May 08, 2011      3 comments

The scale and I, that is. I have been fighting with the same 5lbs since last November. Up, down, up down. So, that's it. I'm done. I am officially kicking that scale out. Now, admittedly, I do still plan to weigh in every once and awhile, ... Read more
I'm going to scream
Saturday, April 30, 2011      7 comments

I am so frustrated this month that I just want to scream. April was NOT a good month; not even a little bit. I have been on point with my nutrition and I have significantly increased my distance in running. I did 2 x 10k and 1 x 12k (on top o... Read more
Just... stuff
Tuesday, April 19, 2011      8 comments

I feel the need to blog. My head is full and spinning and I just have to get things out. Where do I begin? My life has been upside-down over these last few months. In February, my husband and I decided to separate. More my decision than his... Read more
March Guest Client Results
Sunday, April 10, 2011      9 comments

March was certainly an interesting month for me. As many of you already know, I was Carolyn1213's Guest Client for that month. It started off strong, faltered a bit in the middle, and picked up steam again towards the end. I learned a TON abo... Read more
Rough Week
Friday, March 25, 2011      10 comments

Oh, Sparkies, I feel like I have let you (and Carolyn) down this week! It's been a tough week for me. It started off fantastic and then just tanked. I stayed on plan as much as I possibly could, but the exercise was an absolute no-go. Monday... Read more
Week 2
Monday, March 21, 2011      7 comments

Hey everyone! I do apologize for my lack of blogging - I really am terrible at it. Not to mention it has been INSANE at work (which is when I do most of my sparking) so I've been struggling to find time to spend with all of you. I was... Read more
