New Week; New Start
Sunday, January 17, 2010      2 comments

I have made a lot of mistakes the last few days. I did not manage to get a workout yesterday and I ate over my calories. I did manage to stay under 2,000 calories so I counted that as a small victory. This morning I got up and did my thirty m... Read more
Lazy Day
Saturday, January 16, 2010      4 comments

I am having a very lazy day today. In fact, it is 11:30 and I have not done anything but shower. I do feel bad because I haven't worked out. I do plan to do that really soon and then get some errands done. I have pretty much talked myself ou... Read more
That Dreaded Spiral
Friday, January 15, 2010      3 comments

I have a history. Big suprise, right? How many of us don't have a history with the dreaded downward spiral? I have a pattern when it comes to this. I start off really strong and determined for a few weeks or even a month, then it happens. O... Read more
Just Keep Swimming

First, I would like to thank everyone for their kind words and advice on my blog the past few days. I knew I would get to a point in which weight loss would slow down for a while, I just didn't think it would be this soon. Especially since I j... Read more
What am I doing wrong?

I got up this morning and did my workout thinking that today would be the day. I was certain when I stepped on the scales this morning the numbers would have changed. The scale had to move because I have been so good. I have stayed within my ... Read more
Today I Feel Fat
Tuesday, January 12, 2010      4 comments

For the fifth day in a row, I got up early and worked out. I feel great and am very proud of this. My husband told me at least a dozen times last night that he was proud of me for being so consistent and working so hard. But I have never felt... Read more
I Want To Tip!

I have finally taken the plunge and added exercise to my schedule. I have my videos out with the equipment I need beside them and have added it to my schedule. Last week I got up early five out of seven days and worked out. I had a little bre... Read more

I read a good portion of chapter 2 of The Spark in my kitchen while cooking turkey burgers and baked sweet potato fries for dinner. I had my iPod on and started off dancing and mouthing the words to Boys Like Girls, Fallout Boy, and Train. The... Read more
Adding Spark To My Life
Friday, January 08, 2010      5 comments

Last night I finished the first chapter of The Spark. Chris Downie is such an inspiration and his story really touched me. As I read about his shy childhood I couldn't help but think of my own childhood and early adult years. Like Mr. Downie,... Read more
A Health Food Nut? Me?
Thursday, January 07, 2010      2 comments

I received my copy of The Spark yesterday and finished reading the introduction this morning. I have already had an insight and have only read the first few pages (I can only imagine what I am going to get out of this book by the end!). During... Read more
Little By Little

I have a problem that has hindered my weightloss for the last year. I don't exercise enough. I am good at coming up with excuses for this, I don't have time, I am too tired, I don't have the money for a gym. My real problem is that I am too l... Read more

I am not going to spend this blog talking about all of the mistakes I have made during my week vacation in Oklahoma at my mother's house. I will not discuss the fact that my stomach feels like it will burst (still) or that I did not get one veg... Read more
In One Week
Monday, December 14, 2009      1 comments

One week, seven days, is not a long time in the greater scheme of things. So how can one person manage to accomplish so much in those few days? Last week I accomplished more than I ever thought possible, messed up more than I have in a year, a... Read more
Reflections of the Year
Wednesday, December 02, 2009      0 comments

I cannot believe it is already December. Where did the year go? I must have blinked at some point because it does not feel like the end of 2009. I woke up this morning and realized we were two days into December and then started to wonder how... Read more
Damage Control
Tuesday, December 01, 2009      3 comments

Thanksgiving has come and gone. The food is gone and there are no more temptations in the house calling my name. The last couple of days I have attempted to assess the damage and figure out how to "fix" my mistakes. In all honesty I did not d... Read more
