As you can see, I haven't been a very good participant of SparkPeople for a very long time. Since I stopped checking in on a daily basis, I have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, my knees have become increasingly worse, and I have gained back t... Read more
Keeps getting better

I haven't felt this good in a long time. My Chiropractor had me in positions this morning I never thought possible. When I left, I could actually walk upright. I'm still bummed about not being able to exercise the way I would like but, I nev... Read more
No workout

So, I went to my Chiropractor yesterday, and to make a long story short, no exercise of any kind for 2 weeks. Apparently my body is so out of wack, it'll take him that long to get it back to somewhat normal, whatever that is at this point. No ... Read more
Really good day

Wow! This time change is really kicken my backside. No matter how early I go to bed, I still feel like I haven't slept. I think its psychological. I tell myself that I'm never going to get used to the time change. Usually, by November, I ha... Read more
Baby-step daily goals

Maybe I'm setting my standards to low, I don't know, but my daily goal is to get to the gym everyday for at least 30 minutes. So far, I'm doing pretty well. I need to adjust my time accordingly though. Sometimes I don't have an extra 30 minut... Read more

It has been one week since I returned to SparkPeople. I knew I loved it a year ago. Life got in my way and the one thing that I should have put first was now last on my to-do list. All the hard work that I had done back then crept back on, le... Read more

Fridays are date nights for my husband and me. We generally go out to eat, which is welcomed after a weeks worth of work outside of the home then coming home to more work. A typical meal for me when we go out would be appetizers (fried m... Read more

OK, so yesterday in Iowa was darn cold. Big negative numbers in temperature and my body do not mix well. So, I whimped out yesterday and stayed home from work. Confined to my comforting 4 walls with heat that I can turn up, or down if I need... Read more

OK, so the weather here in Iowa is crappy, they've been predicting blizzard warnings for 2 days here. Woke up to snow, snowed all the way to work. What should have taken me 15 minutes to get there took 45 UGH. Oh well, I made it safe, but as ... Read more

Yesterday seemed to be much better for me. I got a good nights sleep the night before and I woke up with lots of energy. Cleaned my house and finished the laundry with so much energy, I scared myself. This is something that I haven't been abl... Read more

After the first week, last night was a tough night. After a stressful week at work, getting back into the grove from the holidays, all I wanted to do was lay on the couch, and that's exactly what I did. I could'nt walk one more step on the tre... Read more
