It's my 25th birthday. A good friend of mine who also struggles with her weight posted a pretty sad blog post yesterday just completely putting herself down as a mother, a wife, a friend, a failure at losing weight, as lazy.... It made me so mad... Read more

Spark Coach's lesson of the day is about time management. I'll be the first to admit, that is my biggest excuse. I don't have time. I have 3 kids and a job and a house to run. In reality, what I should be saying is 'I don't want to spend my s... Read more

In 8 weeks, I'll be holding my little Mason. I've gained 23 lbs so far and I'm okay with that. I'm just 7lbs away from my all time high, but I know that IF I hit that number I won't be there long. ... Read more

I did it and it feels great! That was 50 mins of working out that was about a month over due! I did 30 mins on the elliptical that burned close to 500 calories, then I got my happy butt on the treadmill and did another 20 mins/1 mile wa... Read more
