Tuesday- Crankypants
Wednesday, May 11, 2011      4 comments

For the majority of my day Tuesday, I was in a funk. Nothing major happened to put me in a funk and I was trying to figure out what the deal was. I couldn't bring myself to work on my 8 glasses of water goal, I felt physically blah, and I w... Read more
The BMI Calculation
Tuesday, May 10, 2011      5 comments

I had seen a number of Spark members who had a breakdown of a weight loss goals on their pages that factored in either a percentage of weight loss to their goal or the next "bracket" on the BMI scale. I figured I'd do the same thing. To sta... Read more
Scales- Tools of Deceit?
Saturday, May 07, 2011      2 comments

I've been weighing myself every day for a week or so, just to try to acclimate myself to the idea that I'm going to see weird fluctuations and that I shouldn't get too worked up about it. Kind of like resistance training, but basically I'm worki... Read more
"Woman on the Street" Racy Question

Has anybody else noticed that as they've been implementing more exercise into their lives that their libido is significantly stronger? I'm finding myself pulling some old school stereotypical male moves like completely turning around and g... Read more
I guess I wanted to make today harder for myself
Thursday, May 05, 2011      3 comments

I did something stupid. Last night was my day off of the gym so I hung out with friends until midnight and then ended up on the phone with another friend until 4am this morning. For reference, I have to get up for work at 6:30am. Dumb... Read more

Am I the only one?
Tuesday, May 03, 2011      4 comments

I think I'm really lucky to be able to work out in my little company gym when no one else is there. At first, I was thankful for this because I'm generally wearing things I wouldn't want my co-workers to see me wearing- tight cropped pants, most... Read more
My first day "off"?
Wednesday, April 27, 2011      1 comments

Since I started my Spark journey almost 5 weeks ago, I decided to use the gym at work everyday Monday through Friday and give myself the weekend off from exercise. This means I generally don't leave work until 6:30-7pm, and after I shower and fe... Read more
Friday- a decent challenge won
Monday, April 25, 2011      3 comments

Last Friday, I was totally low on energy and feeling kinda crappy. Emotionally, I was a bit bummed by the lack of support from friends, mentally I was challenged by some dead ends at work, and worst of all- there were people in the office handi... Read more
Am I doing this right? 1 month reflections
Thursday, April 21, 2011      4 comments

I've been Sparking along for a month or so now and I took a look at the Spark Summary Calendar to see how I've been doing. A few background facts: -I set myself up to do cardio 5 days a week (elliptical at work for 33-40 min) -I'm doi... Read more
Elliptical, how I love you and your evil ways
Tuesday, April 19, 2011      5 comments

I am very lucky to have 2 ellipticals here at work in our little gym which I use at the end of my day. For the first week, I did 30 minutes just doing the quick start setting with no resistance or incline. The past two weeks, however, I decide... Read more
The Biggest Loser
Sunday, April 17, 2011      2 comments

Until this morning, I had never actually seen an episode of The Biggest Loser. I guess I just didn't really want to deal with the issue of people losing weight since I had been pretty unsuccessful at it, but I thought it might be motivational no... Read more
Dragging my a$% today
Wednesday, April 13, 2011      6 comments

For some reason, I just can't seem to get my water intake on schedule this morning and I am barely pecking at my oatmeal breakfast. I don't know if it's a PMS thing, but I just feel low energy today overall. I even took my Flintstone vitamin th... Read more
Family issues
Friday, April 08, 2011      0 comments

I'm sure all of us here have some horror stories about how family members are not supportive, either by berating us when we are overweight or showing no encouragement when we are trying to lose weight. Like many of you, I've been overweight... Read more
Stupid scale
Monday, April 04, 2011      4 comments

I've been pretty proud of myself when it comes to my water intake, my exercise schedule, and my adherence to my calorie goals. I thought it couldn't hurt if I decided to weigh myself a few days early just to see a little more progress! Well... Read more
