Overall, I am pleased with my January workouts. I managed to reach my cardio goal of 5 days each week, with the exception of one week when I only did 4 days of cardio. My nutrition though, not so much. I haven't been careful, or even co... Read more

Ahhh, good intentions. I was going strong with my ReSpark Streak. And then Friday happened. By noon I was behind on my water, but still in catch-up range. Then my boss offered to buy lunch for everyone in the office. I caved & ordered the b... Read more

So 4 days back into Sparking. I've tracked all my food. . . and only went over my numbers once. I've managed to get to 30 minutes on the elliptical all 4 days. I've been getting my Wii Fit out again. It's been a long time on that & I have be... Read more
Cold Winter Splurge!

Snow is in the forecast, so that means the grocery stores are packed & the shelves are empty. DH had a couple things on his want list & he's been sick, so I went out while he put the kids to bed. As I leisurely perused the aisle (a luxury I ra... Read more

2009 was a bust. Certainly one of the most challenging years I have ever had. It started in January with the tragic & unexpected death of an old friend. As a direct result of that, I returned to the workforce part-time. I enjoy being back at ... Read more
Back on the Wagon!

I've somehow managed to let my new healthy habits slip away from me. And I've got lots of good excuses; holidays & sick kiddos being the two biggies. But the busy-ness of the holidays & having to keep sick kiddos out of the childcare at the g... Read more

My DD (4y) has been taking a "Kid-Fit" exercise class while I work out in the gym. Two teachers lead the hour-long class twice a week. She's had so much fun with that class that I decided to arrange for a birthday party exercise class. It was... Read more

So last night (Saturday), DH & I were playing cards with several friends when I blurted out, "This sure has been a loooooong weekend". Most of our friends looked at me puzzled like, "Who says that???" Since I've started this gym-habit, ... Read more

I had joined a gym a few days before I found SP, which was just over one month ago. On most weeks, I have been getting to the gym 4 days a week (Mon-Thurs.) Up to this point I have only been using the treadmill. I figured that walking was all... Read more

I noticed my youngest had a scratchy throat on Monday night, so I decided to keep her (& her germs) away from the childcare at the gym. We skipped the gym on Tuesday & just kind of relaxed around the house. (Well, she relaxed, I got caught up ... Read more
