Wondering if anyone out there has any thoughts on this... Myself and my exercise buddy are working really hard at exercising 6 days a week for at least 30 minutes a day. But we don't always manage it in the AM (like we want). Sometimes we d... Read more

And its just Turbo Jam, for Pete's sake. Well, one day at a time. Tomorrow I have Ab Jam and 20 minute Turbo at 6:30 am, and I am anticipating only the best. Mentally anyway. My body is quaking in fear. Shut up, body. You are un-healthy an... Read more

For. Serious. Does she magically plant herself in your brain when you pop in her workouts? I don't know how she does it, but every single time I think to myself about slowing down, pausing the DVD, turning it off, giving up forever, resigni... Read more

Still here. I read on SP every day, and do my best to keep my calorie intakes below 300 every time I eat. I am way less good at this at night, when I am tired and cranky. Aim to stay here. Will keep with it, SP. Will learn how to not l... Read more

Seriously-- I've been doing this since SEPTEMBER. I've never done anything this long. Anything that's related to getting fit, anyway. Sparkpeople rocks my socks. I know I've lost weight, my clothes fit better, I've almost dropped a siz... Read more

Hey all. So it's been an interesting month. I went directly from the holidays right into a very intense tech for a show. All my cooking plans went flying out the window, also all my gym plans. I hadn't really formed the habit, so it wasn't ... Read more

The magic continues! Went to a Mexican Restaurant for the first time since beginning the Spark magic. I was great! I didn't finish anything, I ate slowly, I kept my tortilla chip intake to about 10-12 chips...I was BRILLIANT! Mex... Read more

Well, everyone, I did it. I got past my first Holiday in this new era of healthy lifestyle. It wasn't a complete success. My first evening at home, with my Eastern European grandmother and her crazy fattening cooking, really did a number on... Read more
