There is so much I want to do in terms of fitness. This morning I was watching the Total Gym infomercial and wanted to buy it. My ex husband bought one for me a couple of years ago and I could have taken it when we divided our things, but I c... Read more

Reaching Levels of Frustration Why can’t I lose this weight? A few months ago, I was working out twice a day, watching what I ate and I was losing inches, but not weight. I tried to convince myself that was better because it meant I was lo... Read more

I met with the personal trainer today for the first time. We didn't workout. We just talked. He asked me questions about my limitations, workout history, nutrition. At one point, I broke down in tears...that was tough. Admitting my hangups... Read more
24 Sep 09: Where did it go?
Thursday, September 24, 2009      2 comments

Well...I've pretty much done nothing. I had the desire and drive and it's gone. I have all these reasons for not working out: 1. I have a full-time job. 2. I have two babies (one just turned 2 and the other is 6 months). 3. I have no help ... Read more

Well, I was admitted into the hospital March 23, 2009 to have our second child induced. My final weight was 243 lbs. OUCH! Still, I did so much better than my first pregnancy which ended at a whopping 176 lbs. At 5'1" that is not a pretty ... Read more
Is it easier to practice a healthy lifestyle single or in a relationship?

I think it all depends on the person you are in a committed relationship with. I use to be a fit, active, lean 130 lb woman. Then I met my exboyfriend. We were together for 8 years. He introduced me to fast food restaraunts. I had never really e... Read more

It's been a while since I've last posted. There is a lot that has been going on with me that has kept me away from Spark, but I am back. I lost track of the strong, beautiful woman I am. I was reminded of that surprisingly by the divorce at... Read more

Well, I have two things to be happy about, but I'm not really happy. First, I ran my 5K this past Saturday in 40 minutes and I had a blast! It was so much fun, challenging, and emotional. This race was for the Komen Cure. Our city raised... Read more

Tomorrow is my birthday. I turn 37. Funny, I don't feel 37. That's almost 40. It makes me feel a little old when I put it in that perspective. I sit here at the computer thinking that there are a lot of "I wish I hads" going on in my he... Read more

The way you talk to yourself can be hurtful. Instead of saying "I can't," replace it with "I wish." Swap "I'm a failure" with "I didn't succeed this time." I am so guilty of this. Often while running up a hill, I see it coming and I think ... Read more

I stepped on the scale this morning..... 200!!!!!! I lost 3 pounds in a week. Boy, if I had some reservations about running, they are surely gone now. Seeing that drop in pounds just motivated me to keep running. I knew the run... Read more

Well, today my hubby starts me on the AF trainee workout. I don't know what is involved, but he has been looking forward to this day. This scares me a little. He is a TI and I fear him yelling at me if I don't do a push up correctly or I slow... Read more

Well, I am "starting over". I didn't fall completely off the wagon. I still worked out, I just know without my husband watching over me my workouts weren't as intense as they could have been. Also, with my mother in law here I gave in and had... Read more

Well, there was running and it wasn't as bad as I thought or as bad as hubby made it sound. I had to do two laps in the neighborhood. I don't know how much it was distance wise, but it took me 17 minutes to run. It felt like ten miles t... Read more
