148? Enough is enough
Sunday, January 15, 2012      1 comments

Well, it's 2012. In the last 7 months I've gained 15 pounds. Eek. Not good. After keeping the weight off for 4 years, I can't let this happen now. So I'm back, I'm tracking, I'm going to stop eating like there are no consequences, and I'm going ... Read more
I'm Baaaack!

Yep, it's spark time again, thanks to my best sparkgirls. Since I last posted I've been through some big life changes, including a divorce. I managed not to put the weight back on, but since I haven't exercised regularly in well over a year I lo... Read more
I'm rockin' now!
Sunday, January 25, 2009      3 comments

Oh did you think I meant I'm rockin' with the exercise? Oh no, no, no. I haven't been on SP in awhile, but when I spun the wheel today I got 1000 sparkgoodies points. So I bought myself and MP3 player. Sweet! (Yeah, okay, I'll try to ha... Read more

I just entered in today's workouts. I haven't been doing the challenges the last few days, but I've done everything else. Woo hoo!!! I'm doing better on my water intake, but still not at goal. I'll keep working on it. I'm going up and down ... Read more

I don't want to do the bootcamp video today. At all. Not at all. I'm tired and I just want to do nothing. And I ate too much dinner. Alright... I'm off to do the video now... Edit: I agree with the comment below. Getting... Read more
Quick Accountability Check
Thursday, January 08, 2009      3 comments

I'm off to bed, but first had to do a quick blog. I've done great keeping up with bootcamp. I've done all the exercises and, every day but today, did all the challenges. I forgot about today's challenge or I would've had one more serving of v... Read more
New YOU Bootcamp
Sunday, January 04, 2009      2 comments

Today is the first day of bootcamp, and I'm totally excited about it. It's short (just four weeks) and so I hope it will help me focus on establishing my exercise routine. I haven't done much in the way of exercising lately, so my goal is to g... Read more
2009 Resolutions
Wednesday, December 31, 2008      2 comments

That's resolutions for the year 2009, not 2009 resolutions. That'd be kind of a lot. Anyway, here we go (in no particular order): 1. Write another book. I may or may not finish it by the end of the year - it depends on what the story ne... Read more
The Year in Review
Sunday, December 28, 2008      5 comments

Due to a family crisis, I haven't done much on Sparkpeople for awhile - or really much of anything that doesn't involve taking care of my family. But with the new year approaching, I got to thinking about my resolution list for 2008. It's been... Read more
I'm making it official.
Sunday, September 14, 2008      7 comments

For several months now, I've been wondering if I needed to change my goal weight. On the one hand, I feel great. I get compliments all the time. I think in my regular clothes I look good. I wear a size 6 which I didn't even think was possibl... Read more
Yippy Skippy!

The month-long challenge between Toni and I is finally over! I'm pretty sure we tied (woo hoo!) but I need to go to her blog to be sure. I loved doing this! It really helped me get my inner motivation back. This morning I've already done my e... Read more
The Seventh Milepost in my Virtual Walk
Thursday, July 10, 2008      3 comments

I'm loving the view here! This is Cascade Ranch State Park in California. Isn't it pretty?? I've gone almost 200 miles on my Virtual Walk now. I do realize I'm going a *cough* TAD slower than my teammates, but I'm okay with that. I like... Read more
The Back on Track Challenge
Saturday, June 21, 2008      2 comments

Toni and I are getting back on track together! At stake is a $50 gift card which we're hoping no one will have to buy. I've done a couple writing challenges with my buddy Evie and I love it that so far we've tied both times. The goal, afteral... Read more
Maintaining... mostly
Monday, June 09, 2008      3 comments

We just got back from a week-long trip to Texas, where good times and BBQ abounded! It was so much fun and I somehow managed to only gain 2 pounds. So I need to lose that again. But mostly I feel things are going well. It's far easier to mai... Read more
