As a Christmas gift, my husband gave me a weekend away. This weekend we are going to Eureka Springs, Arkansas where he rented a cabin for us. We try to do this at least once per year, usually around our anniversary in June but he felt that I c... Read more

This is hard! It is so much easier to just sit on my couch and think about being healthy and in better shape. But it feels so good! As hard as it is to make myself get out of bed and work out, as hard as it is to eat healthy and be discipline... Read more

Yesterday was not a good day. I felt so bad when I got up and it lasted most of the day. By 3:00 in the afternoon I had developed a really bad headache and felt shaky. That is when I realized that I had not eaten anything all day. I had brou... Read more

I should have been prepared for this because it happens every time I start exercising consistently. Every time I get started, I wake up sick within a week. Since exercising isn't a habit, it usually derails my progress and ends my workout stre... Read more

This has been in my mind for over a year, but I have not voiced it until now. Fear is the demon that has been holding me back. Although it is contradictory, I have a fear of failing but also a fear of succeeding. It sounds crazy, but I have s... Read more

It has been three, almost four, years since I have been on this site. I find that my weight is almost exactly the same as it was in 2008, when I first started on SparkPeople. All of the progress I made so many years ago has been lost. It is a... Read more

I have said it so many times and always thought it was a coincidence or psychosomatic. A few days after I start eating healthy and exercising I get sick. It never fails. I get a stomach bug, a cold or my sinuses act up. This interrupts my mo... Read more

I have not done so well the last two days. Yesterday started off great but went down hill fast. I ended up eating a burger and fries for lunch along with a big Diet Coke. After that we went grocery shopping and I prepared for my 5 Day Clean E... Read more
