So I've been on SP for about two months now and just wanted to take a minute or two to reflect on some simple things I've either added to my life or given up in my time here. -I've added an extra 1/2 hour to my day. At first I would onl... Read more

So I'm getting ready to start the 30 Day Shred and, I must confess, I'm a bit scared/excited/nervous! It reminds me of when I ran my first 10K. I had only been running for about 6 months when my (now ex) boyfriend signed me up without my... Read more
Why does this bother me so much?

Ok, maybe I just need to vent. I always bring baby carrots, a banana, a peach, an apple, etc. to work for my snacks between meals. Yesterday I forgot them and when I mentioned it my co-worker in the cube next to me said, "Oh, what are you goin... Read more

Wow, time flies! I'm done with week 3 of the challenge. I'll admit, at first I didn't think this would be challenging enough for me. I mean, 10 minutes a day? What could that possibly do? But this week I noticed that my push-ups were better... Read more

This morning, when I got up for my run I realized that none of my normal running clothes were clean. Digging deep into my dresser drawer my hand emerged with my old nemesis...my running shorts. I'm one of those pear shaped girls and no m... Read more

This morning I finished the first week of the 28-Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge. When I first started it I thought, "how can 10 minutes a day do anything?" Well I grabbed my dumbbells that were collecting dust on the shelf (still in the box, b... Read more

Now that I'm a few weeks into my journey I've noticed that weighing myself on a daily basis has been one of the hardest habits to break. I remember reading something years ago that said people who weigh themselves on a daily basis tend to not g... Read more

So a get on the scale this morning and...4 more pounds gone! I was only expecting a 1 or 2 pound loss, figuring that the 4 pounds lost in the first week was the "water weight" and now I'd be down to the slow and steady part of my weight loss. ... Read more

Oh it's Monday again, time to reflect on how bad I've been over the weekend. If only I hadn't had that burger...or that french dip... So I did go over my calories a small amount Friday and Saturday but, since I keep such close track of wha... Read more

It's that time of year again. The Twilight 5K in uptown Charlotte. I run in a series every year that is comprised of 9-11 races of varying lengths; 5K, 4 miler, 10K, and 15K. The one race that I would skip every year if I could? The Tw... Read more

4! 4 pounds lost in my first week on SparkPeople! There were some serious moments of soul searching throughout the week...like that box of Milk Chocolate Salted Caramel Butter Cookies staring at me while I was in line at Trader Joe's. Only $1... Read more

I have often put off starting a diet because of some event coming up...a football game, a party, a weekend trip. This time it was...the concert. The concert that entailed 2-3 hours of tailgating beforehand and continued beer consumption inside... Read more
