Today was day two swimming at the Y. I finally renewed my membership, and to my great delight my SO decided to join with me. :) Swimming has been my favorite form of exercise for over a year now because of my ankle and back issues. It helps that... Read more
Goodbye, Fat. Hello, Muscle.

I make so many excuses to stay immobile. "My leg hurts too badly" or "I can't put any weight down". "I don't have a Y membership" or "I'm just too tired/stressed/depressed/(fill in the blank)". It stops here. Today. Now. I will not w... Read more
Day...? of the Reset
Wednesday, October 12, 2016      5 comments

Haha, my, my how time flies! I think it's been about 2 weeks since I hit reset. So, here's an update: in short, I've partially reached several goals but haven't reached any of them fully... and that's okay. I mean, ultimately, it's not but ... Read more
Day 2 of the Reset
Wednesday, September 21, 2016      2 comments

So, I didn't meet any of my goals yesterday in full. But, you know what? I was closer to meeting them than if I hadn't tried at all. So, I'm counting it as a partial win. And as Anne Shirley said: "[Today] is a new day, fresh with no mistakes in... Read more
Back to Basics
Tuesday, September 20, 2016      2 comments

Wow, I really can't seem to stay focused on my health lately. It's almost kind of pathetic. I make so many excuses... too many excuses. Those excuses end today. I could tell you how I'm too busy or I'm in too much pain; I could excuse myself for... Read more

I apologize in advance if I get a bit "heady" in this post. I'm laying here with a killer headache and monstrous body pain (per usual) and thinking about how to change my body and my life. I was thinking about habits. We are all here on spa... Read more

I can't possibly condense the nearly two years I've been gone from spark into a single blog entry so I won't even try. But, I will list my biggest hurdles/stressors, and tell you all what I plan to do about them: - Partial spinal fusion: I'... Read more
502 days and counting... Here's the custom walking program!
Sunday, July 20, 2014      0 comments

As I wrote yesterday, since walking is the ONLY sanctioned form of exercise after my spinal fusion for the next 3+ months, I've come up with a custom 12-week walking program. It would be far too easy just to feel defeated and do nothing, as... Read more
503 days to goal. New, custom walking program!
Saturday, July 19, 2014      1 comments

In the last 3 days, I haven't done much to work toward my goal, I admit. I was feeling ashamed, but I need to turn that shame into motivation. So, I've not done much -- okay. I can't go back in time and change that. What I can do is work with in... Read more
506 days to goal... Plus a long-overdue update
Wednesday, July 16, 2014      2 comments

December 4, 2015. It's the day I've chosen, with my dear friend, as my goal date. I would like to reach my goal weight by this date. Nay-- I WILL reach my goal weight by this date! That's 506 days from today. Why the sudden update? Apparent... Read more
Self-designed, semi-flexible diet.
Sunday, January 19, 2014      1 comments

I am still recovering from influenza, so my activity has been waning since Thursday. However, I've taken this opportunity to think closely about my diet. In general, I've been thinking a lot about my diet lately. This goes along with what I wa... Read more
Detox Diets - And long time, no post.
Thursday, December 05, 2013      3 comments

So, this post is going to be part update, part commentary on a detox diet I'm doing with a friend. WHERE have I been? Sadly, ill. I've been having kidney issues again, starting with a stone and subsequent infection, followed by lots of foll... Read more
BLC19, WUB #1 - 1 day late, but not especially short.
Monday, August 19, 2013      4 comments

I began writing this yesterday, but got too distracted and subsumed with my life. Such is usually the case with me. :| I have to admit, despite the energy surrounding BLC19 (I love it!!!), some things going on in my personal life have made ... Read more

Monday, August 12, 2013      4 comments

Yes, it's Week 0, i.e., the start of BLC Season 19. You can't imagine, seriously, how excited I am for this. During the build up, I didn't think I was overly thrilled, but now that it's actually taking off, I'm so stoked. I can't wait to see wha... Read more
