Last fall I was the heaviest of my life. 196.8 lbs. Seeing that number (huge to me) was sobering, scary, and depressing. I'd been feeling sluggish and unhealthy in general. I'd become sedentary, although my job requires me to move around quite a... Read more

I've been working out faithfully since November 1, 2010. By faithfully I mean at least 5 days a week, more often 6. I'm eating better, both nutritionally and in terms of portion control. I feel better physically. I feel better emotionally. My cl... Read more

Wow. The Fit Test on day one was NO JOKE. But I dug deep and haven't stopped! I'm now in week 2 and loving this. It's hard, and I have to modify a couple of the exercises, but I'm keeping up so much better than I ever thought I would! I have hig... Read more

Tomorrow I start INSANITY. I'm excited and intimidated at the same time. I took measurements and photos last night with the help of a friend - poor girl didn't know what she was in for when she came over for movie night! I've been feeling ... Read more

Maybe I'm crazy. One of my goals (and one I didn't admit to ANYONE at first) was to do the Insanity program before summer. I began my little journey on November 1st, and I knew full well it would be months before I'd be ready to start. I was rig... Read more

My boyfriend joined a Biggest Loser challenge at work and is bound and determined to win the cash! So now he's on board with the eating improvements, and even got excited by some fabulous turkey/veggie burgers I made recently! Life became easier... Read more

The gym I belong to does a really cool thing - periodically they issue a challenge to members. Members can sign up for little "contests" to encourage us to meet our goals. This holiday season, the challenge is to not gain more than 2 lbs through... Read more
Putting the SPARK back in my life!
Sunday, December 12, 2010      0 comments

I haven't been using SparkPeople faithfully for the past few months. I got pretty ambivalent about things until November 1st, when I joined the local gym (in small towns we're lucky to have just 1!), and began going every day. In the past 42 day... Read more

I'm so tired of wearing the same old things, every day, especially when I have a closet and dresser full of cute stuff that used to fit! So I have this one pair of men's camo cargo shorts that I sneaked away from my boyfriend years ago. I wore t... Read more
