'Color Me Rad' - My first 5K!
Sunday, June 16, 2013 3 comments
I ran my first 5K this morning - it was the Color Me Rad run which meant that we got pummeled with colored cornstarch from start to finish! A couple of my friends who run convinced me to do this with them, and I saw it as a good excuse to motiva... Read more

I was still a little sore today from Monday's lunch-time cardio salsa class and evening yoga. Yesterday I felt worse, so I took the night off. It even crossed my mind a few times today to skip my run and yoga class tonight. However, I did so wel... Read more

Since my last entry, which was AGES ago, I have finally gotten back into the swing of healthier eating and logging calories. I really do thrive off of a mostly whole-foods diet. I always feel so much more energized when I eat this way, and I fin... Read more

For about the last week, I haven't been feeling well. I feel like my blood pressure is up or down - I can't tell - I've had strong and long-lasting headaches, and just generally don't feel right. My diet has changed pretty significantly in... Read more

So I'm officially the worst Sparker. Doesn't matter. I'm back to try again. The past two years were pretty dismal for me. I was stuck and overworked at a job I hated, and in a dead-end relationship that sucked the life out of me. I've sinc... Read more

I saw a picture of myself yesterday and the strangest thing occurred. I recognized myself! For the first time in almost 10 years, the person who I saw in the picture matched the person who I've always seen, but who nobody else could see because ... Read more

Does anybody else have this problem? During the week, I am the perfect little Sparker. I track every calorie in and out, hit all my ranges, exercise, the whole 9 yards. Then, the weekend comes, and it's a total free-for-all. How do I stop sabota... Read more

I read Real Simple magazine, and I particularly love the food section and all of the nutritional advice and healthy recipes that they include. I made a really fantastic salad yesterday that I wanted to share. Unfortunately I never seem to have m... Read more

Yes, I did fall off the face of the planet. I've been so busy lately that I just haven't had time for Spark, which is lame, and I'm not going to use that as an excuse again. I've actually had mild success logging my food and exercise, and really... Read more

Okay, so I've not been the best Sparker lately. My "studycation" has resulted in less time in front of the computer and therefore fewer chances to Spark. I definitely have been making poor eating choices lately, but holding strong with my workou... Read more

I've wanted to take up running for a long time. I've never EVER been a good runner, in fact, I've mostly hated it with a passion. But, I've realized I've been doing it all wrong. Whenever I've decided to try to run, I just take off running and ... Read more

My weightloss has been incredibly slow, but I have to say, I am feeling so good about the changes I've made in my life and the way things are going. Since joining SP in January, I've taken a lot of steps forward and a ton of steps backwards. I'v... Read more
