Having A Blast

As my Spark friends know by now, I decided to take time off from work to recharge my batteries and so far I'm having the time of my life. This is what I've done so far: 2/15/2010: Had to go into the office to submit some work that wa... Read more
Time Off For Me
Tuesday, February 16, 2010 3 comments
I have been feeling a bit tired over the past few days, perhaps it's because I travelled over the weekend, though I think this has been going on for longer than that. I'm still able to do all my workouts but not with the same kind of energy tha... Read more
I'll Take That Too!

Yesterday I rumbled and fumbled about other benfits, other than the shift on the scale, that I have experienced as I strive for health and fitness. I later realised that I had barely scratched the surface. I am not talking about the health benef... Read more

I have to keep reminding myself that it's not always about the number on the scale, that is just a small part of it. There is so much more to this whole process than pounds lost. When the scale shifts, I'd like to look at that as a bonus (and it... Read more
I Feel Good

I am literally on top of the world today. Sometimes when I'm working out in the privacy of my home at some ungodly hour of the morning, negative thoughts cross my mind. Like who cares that you are working so hard? What are you training for... Read more

Well, this isn't exactly headline news. But for me, it is! Yesterday was my husband's birthday and I got him this lovely chocolate fudge cake ( one of my favorites). Everyone who knows me is well aware that I have a sweet tooth. I love swee... Read more

I could have simply said that I have lost x lbs but as I keep saying, the scale is not my best friend. I prefer other ways of monitoring my progress, the ones that don't leave me feeling on top of the world one week and terribly discouraged the ... Read more
Appreciating My Efforts

It is so easy to beat yourself up when you miss a workout, or fall short on your water intake, or let the sweet tooth win. Sometimes we even beat ourselves up longer than we should (like beating yourself up over the box of chocolate you had on y... Read more

Yesterday was not a very good day for me. Let me explain. I'm the kind of person who rushes home from work everyday, prepares dinner for my family and then quickly heads out for a run/walk. But yesterday was just one of those days. My 45-mi... Read more
This ain't a Journey

I have so often heard people refer to weight loss as a journey, perhaps I have also been guilty of viewing it the same way. But is weight loss really a journey? What I know about any journey is that it will always have a destination, which ... Read more

I think I deserve a big pat on the back, if I say so myself. Here's the reason why: I love walking, I can walk briskly for upto one and a half hours and I always feel extremely good after a long, brisk walk. Walking is the one activity I ca... Read more

I joined Sparkpeople in March 2008 but I was never very active. I was actually more interested in reading the articles and getting ideas for workouts and of course reading other people's success stories. But my journey was still quite successful... Read more
