Sunday, November 17, 2019      4 comments

I'm finding that a good thing (if you could call it that) about getting your heart broken is that it's a bit like riding a bike. It's been 12 years since the last time, but I'm calling on that experience to help me surf the waves of emotion. ... Read more

Hi SP! It's been a while.... And I am ready to have you back in my daily life. It's funny how history repeats itself in surprising ways. The catalyst that brought me to SparkPeople back in 2007 was a bad breakup. My fiance - my co... Read more

Well, unfortunately, Week 4 of Stage 2 wasn't so stellar for me. Being away from home completely threw me off. Between flying, switching from Central to Eastern time, having a crazy two days of intense meetings, and eating out every meal, I we... Read more

I am typing this from a hotel room in Michigan, where I am for work for a few days. It was a crazy weekend, so I am a little late with my weekly update. I did really well on Week 3 of Stage 2. I ate within my calorie range almost every da... Read more

I rocked it this week, and I am feeling great! Aside from this nasty sinus thing that I've been fighting for what feels like forever, I feel better than I have since before I had Alec. (Hopefully the antibiotics I scored myself this week will ... Read more

Not long ago, I was flipping through the channels and ran across an infomercial for Zumba DVD's. It looked so fun! Now that the baby was going to sleep earlier and staying asleep all night, it seemed like the perfect choice for something fun t... Read more

Sunday, February 17, 2013      2 comments

I remember when I first joined SparkPeople in 2008 how amazing FastBreak was. Never, ever in my years of dieting had I run across such a simple and effective concept. In everything else we do, know that you have to walk before you can run. Bu... Read more
Feeling Sparked

I had a great week, and I'm very happy about it... relieved, even. Since Alec was born, I have not felt like myself at all. I've felt so discouraged. Everyone tells me that I'm doing a great job balancing work and my new mom duties, but on t... Read more
