OK, so I fell off the blogging wagon. I kind of fell off the Spark wagon, actually. I've linked up with some great people on Facebook and have been getting a lot of support there. The hard thing for me with Spark is that you get close with someo... Read more
Has it really been 3 months?
Wednesday, April 04, 2012      0 comments

I haven't really blogged in awhile, because I felt like I didn't have anything to report. I've been doing okay with my goals, but not quite meeting them. Getting off track more frequently. April is a recommittment month for me. February was good... Read more
Is it really 2012 already??
Saturday, January 07, 2012      3 comments

Well, one week into the new year, and what do I have to show for it? I almost didn't do a January blog. I couldn't think of anything to say that hasn't already been said. I didn't meet my goal, and I can point my finger at the same things that h... Read more

Another month goes by, and I'll be honest, I haven't done much. I've tried to watch what I eat and track my food, but I haven't exercised much at all. I've been working 50+ hour weeks, plus taking care of the house & kids since my husband is wor... Read more
November 1st Goal
Wednesday, November 02, 2011      2 comments

OK, so I skipped blogging in October. Here's the short version: I didn't make my goal and I wasn't real happy with myself. I decided to just move forward. I didn't make my November 1st weight goal, but realistically, I've been behind since the v... Read more
September 1st Goal
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      3 comments

Goal weight: 165 Actual weight: 166.2 Well, I'm still about a pound behind my goal. I can accept that though, considering I started the month a pound behind. This means I met the goal of 3 lbs. for the month, I just didn't make up the pou... Read more
August 1st Goal
Tuesday, August 02, 2011      6 comments

Well, it's been about 2 weeks since I re-evaluated my goals and decided I needed to get serious about this. True to form, right after setting goals and recommitting, I got sick. I've had a cold kind of thing for 2 weeks now. The first week, I fo... Read more
Rambling about Goals, Thinking "Out Loud"
Friday, July 15, 2011      4 comments

I decided this morning that I need to sit and rethink my goals and how I'm working towards them. Because just going day to day, telling myself I'm making good food decisions, but not tracking my food or exercising isn't getting me anywhere. Yeah... Read more

Inspired by a fellow Sparker (you know who you are!), I felt it was time to have a little sit down with myself.... Dear TLRanel's Brain, We've been working together for about 33 years now. I feel like I know you well, and think I need ... Read more
OMG, are you pregnant?!
Monday, February 07, 2011      14 comments

At certain points in a woman's life, these are joyful words to hear. When you've been trying to get pregnant, I imagine the excitement in being able to respond, "Actually, yes I am!" But what about when that isn't the truthful response? A ... Read more
At a loss... or is it a gain?
Saturday, October 02, 2010      5 comments

OK, I haven't blogged in awhile, but felt like I needed to vent some things. So prepare for rambling. I know I'm not perfect at making these lifestyle changes. I still make unhealthy choices, but much less frequently than in the past. I'm n... Read more
Week 3... What a struggle!
Thursday, June 17, 2010      3 comments

OK, so I didn't blog last week. I was too frustrated to even put my thoughts and feelings into words. This is the point where I'd normally say, "nevermind, this isn't working and it's not worth it." But, I kept it up, and decided to post on a me... Read more

OK, I have to admit, I didn't expect this to be so hard. I've had ups and downs this week, and a lot of frustration. In retrospect, this might not have been the best timing to start a project like this, but really, when would be a good time? Yes... Read more
