Last week I had a really great week of eating well, exercising more than ever, and consistently reaching all my goals, so I thought I would give myself a break and relax a bit on the weekend. Then Monday came and went and seemed to get away from... Read more

Three weeks since I'm back! Really only two, because the first week I was logging in and reading to get motivated but not doing much else in the tracking or activity department. Then I got my Spark Activity Tracker and things started to really h... Read more

Reaching Tiny Goals
Wednesday, March 12, 2014      6 comments

Yesterday was a really good day. Still just a tad bit shy of reaching my protein goal, but better than the day before. It's hard because I am phasing out eggs and dairy. I still have a lot of cheese in the fridge that I need to eat but I am not ... Read more
Great Start to Week

Yesterday I tracked all my food and exercise. It feels good to get back into the routine. I am finding reaching my steps goal very difficult though. My work is in front of a computer screen. I cut my goal in half so it would be more attainable a... Read more

Well, it's been awhile since I've been here. The place looks the same, so glad to see all my old friends have kept on Sparking in my absence! I kind of got derailed when my boyfriend came home from working away out west in December right b... Read more

Well despite having only a so-so week last week, I managed to drop three more pounds at this week's weigh-in. I am freakishly close to seeing the 180s! I have no idea when last I saw those numbers because I gave up weighing myself sometime... Read more
Week 5 - Day 6 - A Question on Balance
Saturday, November 23, 2013      5 comments

I haven't blogged much at all this week as my focus shifts to deadline and work. I fell off the exercise wagon but tracked food nearly every day. The one day that I missed I didn't do too bad. I'm not overeating but a couple of days I came in un... Read more

Friday, November 15, 2013      8 comments

Yesterday was a busy day of appointments and being out and about doing things, so I decided not to track. It's been about a month on my plan. Part of me was curious how I would do if I gave myself a free day. I probably didn't drink 8 full... Read more
