Friday, April 04, 2014      10 comments

A few days ago I mentioned to a spark friend creating a go to list of coping techniques. The idea is to use this list when upset, anxious, or otherwise having a bad day instead go falling back to emotional eating. So, here it is... 1. Exe... Read more
Blew it today
Friday, March 28, 2014      7 comments

With a long run in today I indulged in fried fish....well, the title lets you know what the result was. This was the first time I was over my calories since starting my weight loss journey in February. I was over today by about 600 calories (a... Read more

Signing up for two races because it's what I need to do for me
Tuesday, March 25, 2014      2 comments

My husband doesn't get it. He says, "Why do you have to pay to run. I can time your runs." I tell him that it is the races that I train for and what keeps me motivated. It also has to do with the people, running harder during a race, and havin... Read more

I thought that this would be the week that Mr. ONEderful would finally enter my life again. But it was not meant to be. I thought I did a good job with managing a ladies weekend and three days of work travel this week by eating as well as I co... Read more

So far this weekend is going pretty great. I'm with 20+ ladies that enjoy scrap booking and crafting. I'm knitting a great shawl that I'll wear this summer with a fabulous white or turoquois sundress. I was a liitle worried about what there w... Read more
Motivation is waning
Sunday, March 09, 2014      7 comments

I've stayed on track today, but my motivation is low. It was a difficult day and I'm certainly not looking forward to Monday. Perhaps I'm just overtired due to springing ahead. Here is to hoping that tomorrow will be better.... Read more
Hurts so good!
Sunday, March 02, 2014      5 comments

I didn't intend to run as hard as I did yesterday, but I did. Now I have some aching muscles that I haven't felt in a while. It's not unbearable and won't keep me from walking and stretching today or doing what I'd like to do. It makes me feel... Read more
I'm such a loser....and I'm okay with it
Friday, February 28, 2014      4 comments

I've lost 10 pounds with Spark as of today. The buttons on my fat pants that were once straining, now close easily. I'm able to wear my green fleece jacket because it is a little more comfortable. I think I'll wear it today :). But, even with... Read more
Is my hunger thermometer broken?
Thursday, February 27, 2014      3 comments

After eating lunch today I'm asking myself if I'm still hungry? Well, I had a cup of soup and 5 ritz crackers with a small amount of ham and cheese (divided deli slice). I try to eat a little bit every 2-3 hours. Hmmmmm. I know that I'd like ... Read more
I should really run more

I've found my supapower and it is running. I may not want to go out in the 15 degree weather and wear more layers that I thought was humanly possible....but gosh it feels so good when I'm done. Now, if that isn't a supapower, I don't now what ... Read more
Meeting Challenges
Saturday, February 22, 2014      2 comments

This week hasn't been easy. Last week I gained weight despite following the plan so it didn't start well. I then had to travel for work and didn't have control over my evening meals because of staying with another family. I returned home to fi... Read more
Great weather, great run
Wednesday, February 19, 2014      0 comments

I took advantage of the fantastic weather and went for a run. After running in all the super cold weather and being bundled up, today was a breeze. My only complaint is that when tracking my exercise, spark doesn't see my speed as running....y... Read more
