I've not been on Spark for a while though I've logged on every single day. Sadly, all my efforts to get strong and lose weight have backfired. I have been rather ill for the past two weeks because of an autoimmune malady. This is something I'... Read more

Saturday, September 14, 2013      3 comments

I haven't blogged in a while because I've had so much going on I couldn't focus to even think about it all. This summer has been so much fun and a lot of change. Frankly the past 10 years have been insane with change! Like a lovely Spark frie... Read more

Thursday, August 22, 2013      3 comments

For the first time since 2006 I feel like I'm getting my drive and desire back. I'm able to push myself and yet not get too obsessive (just a little) and see results. I feel strong and able and much more confident. Mostly I feel like I can tr... Read more
Day 29 - Ouch

Goodness! That Fitbit should come with an addiction warning. I am a true sucker for praise, even if it comes from a stupid little piece of technology. I am seriously obsessed and it might be dangerous. LOL. Because I set the goal for 10... Read more

I'm two weeks into Spark and I've lost 6 pounds. I completed my dental assisting course and got an A! I'm very proud of myself. Now I wait on the national board to let me know when I can take my x-ray certification exam and I'm good to go. ... Read more

I've been sticking to Spark and trying to learn something everyday about myself and my habits. I already know how to lose weight properly and how to exercise but what I don't know is why do I keep going back to not caring for myself and using f... Read more
Day 7 & 8 - Walkin' with a Little Less Weight
Thursday, July 25, 2013      3 comments

I'm easily able to walk my 3 miles now which is a first since last year. My injured knee is holding up. Today was my weigh in day and I lost 3.8 pounds in this first week. While I was very pleased, a piece of me was rather bummed. A 22 year ... Read more
Day 6 - Studying Rat Tricks

For the most part I don't consume much dairy. I have a mild allergy to it and stay away. Today I was wanting to eat something different for a change and at the market I saw some ricotta cheese and went for it. I had some with some raspberries... Read more

Well, with my boyfriend here it was more difficult at times to Spark. I'm used to sitting with him at night when he gets home from work (he is an executive chef at a high end restaurant) and drink wine and chat. Instead he had some wine and I ... Read more

I know those titles are getting silly but I can't watch TV so I need some way to add humor. Ha! Well, the heat hasn't let up and neither am I. I walk a little more at once each day. I feel stronger and unfortunately my dog is fitter too.... Read more

I'm on a mission. I went to my cousin's house to hang at her pool. All the girls had on bikinis but me but I still felt good. They were all talking about their recent plastic surgeries and I just listened because I have had none. They were a... Read more

While I joined Spark in 2009 I did not stay on the website for long. I did lose the weight I wanted to lose but this year I've gained it all back plus 2 pounds. It has been an exciting year and I had a lot of fun but I realized recently that I... Read more
