Honestly, is it the weekend yet?
Thursday, January 16, 2014      6 comments

It has been such a long week! I'm exhausted and the fact that I pulled a muscle trying to walk a 51# dog doesn't help! No strength training for me. I even decided I can take a day off of walking today if I don't have the energy. And I don't ... Read more
How do you Spark?
Tuesday, January 14, 2014      8 comments

I'm curious about your routine. When do you track food and movement? How many points do you strive for in a day? I log on first thing in the morning and read articles and try to plan my meals for the day. I track things as they happen fo... Read more
Thank you!

I really wanted to thank everyone for all their kind words! I'm trying to thank you individually, but if I miss you, I'm sorry and thank you! Poppet got a rabies shot today. She did really well at the vet, especially since this particular... Read more
Pictures of my new baby!

My new baby and walking partner came home from the shelter on Wed. We've been dying to have a dog for years and we were finally able to! I don't know if the kids or mom or dad are more excited! ... Read more
If I hadn't gone for a walk I wouldn't have met a celebrity

I was debating going for a walk today because I'm still feeling fluish, but I also had to get the daughter out of the house so DH could sleep in. So I gave in and went for a slow walk. Halfway down the block, a man comes by riding a bike w... Read more
I'm going to splurge today
Tuesday, December 31, 2013      8 comments

I'm feeling a bit less fluish and my mom brought me Trader Joe's Mandarin Orange Chicken. I'm truly addicted to this! I practically lived on it when I was pregnant with my daughter (which is probably part of the reason I'm where I'm at today b... Read more
Doctor Who and Pixie Cuts (or, Pixie Cuts are Cool!)
Monday, December 30, 2013      5 comments

Yes,I still have the flu and it's pretty awful. My immune system sucks and I take three times as long to recover as the rest of the family. We're out of water and ginger ale! DH won't be up for several hours and I'm not dragging myself to... Read more
Yay it is working! I lost 2 pounds!
Sunday, December 29, 2013      4 comments

I haven't had the time to measure, which I can't wait to do, but the scale says 212. (actually it says 211.6, but I also weighed myself around 11pm last night and it was 212 so I'm going to stick with that). That's a 2 pound loss during a... Read more

is a pressure cooker! My parents bought me one for Christmas. I am so so excited! I'm going to make a split pea soup tonight. (I hope! I'm really nervous.) I could really use recipe suggestions! Do you have a pressure cooker? What's your... Read more
My First Three Weeks at SparkPeople
Sunday, December 22, 2013      7 comments

All in all, wonderful! I've lost a total of 5 pounds these three weeks, which would probably have been 2 pounds had I not signed up here. (Or possibly less!) I've lost about an inch everywhere these last three weeks. I thought I ... Read more
Water Water Everywhere
Tuesday, December 17, 2013      7 comments

My knees are still hurting but not nearly as badly. We'll see what I can do today. I thought I'd write about water. I used to HATE water. Honestly, it was like torture trying to drink it. DH would remind me to drink more I even admit ... Read more
Every Day Can't and Won't Be Perfect
Monday, December 16, 2013      7 comments

That's a hard thing to remember. All one can do is to do their best and that's what I'm trying to do. I'm frustrated with myself. My knees hurt so long walks are out. I took the weekend off from walking and did upper body stuff but I kno... Read more
The First 10 pounds (or more)
Sunday, December 15, 2013      5 comments

I actually weighed myself three times this morning because I didn't believe the scale. I now weigh less than I have in over a year. I still sort of don't believe it. I'm afraid next time I get on the scale it will be a larger number again! ... Read more
My First Week of SparkPeople.com
Friday, December 13, 2013      14 comments

In August 2013 I started walking 10 minutes a day 5 days a week and started adding more distance every week. I'd gotten into the habit of walking every day, making sure my pedometer read at least 10,000 steps a day, but it was time to start add... Read more
