I stumbled upon this quote from "Oh the places you'll go" today, and it couldn't have come at a better time. I think we all need to remember that... "You have brains in your head.You have feet in your shoes.You can steer yourself any direc... Read more

I was looking for an easy lunch today, so I packed a twist on "cheese and crackers" which was a normal school day lunch for me. I packed 4 wasa crisps with avocado hummus and an apple. I'm not sure what I think of this flavor... the hummus is... Read more

Oy, I have a heck of a big decision to make, and I need my Sparkfriends to help me. Here's the quick back story: In the fall of 2009 I was really unhappy with my then job, so I applied for a lot of others, including a job at Company A. I ... Read more
Sore about a sore neck set back
Wednesday, February 09, 2011      1 comments

Either in my sleep on Sunday, or early, early Monday morning I did something to my neck. The pain was so bad, that I threw up. I made my way to the couch and crying, I asked my fiancé "permission" to call in to work. I hate calling in and eve... Read more

That "Ah HA!" moment I was waiting for finally happened on Monday. I snapped out of my funk, set some goals and hit the gym. I'm feeling great, but yet I have that nagging feeling at the back of my mind that I've just blown 2 crucial months fo... Read more
Reaching out to Sparkland for Support
Monday, January 10, 2011      6 comments

I am having my worst day emotionally speaking in a while. I really just don't even want to be out of bed. I've been irrationally angry, crying sporadically and otherwise just convincing myself that sadness is not a good reason to take a sick d... Read more

I am so mad at myself right now, I could scream! Instead of screaming though, I'm blogging. I'm sharing my experience without so that we can all hopefully learn from my experience. This morning, I was running behind and so I didn't stop t... Read more
Making good choices

I can't believe that I'm about to say this, but yesterday I ate 1 serving of pasta. That is 1 rather than 4-6, which is a really bad habit around our house! I have to say, an actual "serving" of pasta is TINY. Is a huge freakin' tease is what... Read more
Failing miserably

After some ups and downs since my engagement exactly a year ago yesterday it turns out I've gain 5 pounds. While that doesn't sound like much, to me it feels like utter failure, and what it has done to my self esteem is much worse than what it ... Read more
I did it again!
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      4 comments

Well I've been at my new job 2 months now. It's been a wonderful relief in many ways, and yet again, a whole new set of stresses. At my last job, I had gotten so stressed out, that I really stopped trying. In that sense, work was a breeze. I... Read more
Time for some harsh truths
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      1 comments

I know how to do this, and I haven't been. There I said it. We all know that there's no day on that calendar when you've reached your goal and can completely stop trying. You can't flake out on your work out, you can't eat whatever you want, ... Read more

I'm feeling this day slip away from me a little bit here. A combination of desk job boredom and ever present stress is tricking my tummy in to thinking it's starving! Even after making sure I got some extra carbs and protein via a very r... Read more

In the interest of both of our sanity's, Chris and I got back to basics this weekend. We did our gym work outs, got in most of our housework and still made time for two lovely walks in the sun shine. It's been a pretty mild winter in Ontar... Read more
Confession: I'm a cranky girl!
Thursday, February 18, 2010      2 comments

I just have no idea how my future-hubby does it -- I'll scream and cry, stub my toe, want to cuddle, put in 50% at the gym one day, and 150% the next! I have been a very moody girl as of late and whether it PMS or stress, Chris has been taking ... Read more
Breaking a plateau and an "elliptical" high.
Monday, February 01, 2010      5 comments

Good morning fellow Sparkers! Good news! I have finally started losing again! Granted, it's only half a pound, but I was as proud as if I had lost 10 because it's been WEEKS since I've seen any movement other than this 155-154-155-154 dan... Read more
