I am in week 18 of my pregnancy (due 5/1/11) and all is going well! I have been enjoying my cravings and realized today that most are breakfast foods: oatmeal anything (the smell of dry oatmeal drives me crazy it is so good!), bagels and cream c... Read more

It has been over 2 months since my last post. Yikes! I have been busy job hunting (I start my new job tomorrow, yay!) and getting settled in North Carolina. And as much as I would love to work towards my goal weight that is a goal that will have... Read more

I think it has been months since I have been active on SP and so much has changed! I got married in June and moved from Minnesota to North Carolina for my husband's job. So pretty much every aspect of my life has changed. I have been in North Ca... Read more

The trees are budding and the weather is getting warmer so it is that time of year again! Time for me to bike to work! I live in MN so biking in the winter is much too hard core for me but I do bike spring to fall to save money and get some grea... Read more

I have been away from SP a lot the past couple of months. I will log on every now and then to check on things but doing more than that has been a struggle. Life has just been crazy. We are finishing up remodeling our house and gearing up for an ... Read more

So I did something this week that I did not know I was afraid to do...I joined a gym! The exercise videos and stationary bike at home were okay but it was time to get myself out of the house more. They have a pool, a sauna, tons of equipment and... Read more

I have been absent from sparkpeople quite a bit lately. But don't think because I have been gone that I have been slacking (okay, so I have slacked a little!)! I am nowhere near my goal but I have been re-evaluating my game plan. Sticking to my ... Read more

Some things have happened in the past week or two that have thrown me off balance. I am still counting my calories and logging my food but sparking & exercising have fallen low on the list of priorities. I feel a bit lost at the moment if I am b... Read more

I finally did it, I weigh less than 175! I am a little bit nervous about celebrating though...almost too good to be true. 175 is a big milestone I have been anticipating since I started losing weight. Years ago when I first hit 175 I gave up on ... Read more

I have been battling a cold for the past couple of days. But I have diligently counted my calories and shredded every day. I fear that if I give myself a break I might not start back up so sneezing or not I will keep on going. I am on day... Read more

I have been working this week on tracking what I eat and how long it keeps me full. Very interesting little project! So far I have learned that I do not stay full very long, 1-2 hours at most. I knew that my optimum eating pattern was small meal... Read more

Last night I did Jillian's 30 day shred video for the first time. All I can say is 'ouch.' Jillian really knows how to get your heart racing! I sweated, I cursed and I wanted to quit but I finished, shaking and exhausted. I can only hope to get ... Read more

I have been out of town for a little over a week spending time with family and head back to Minneapolis on Saturday. It has been a time to sleep in, spend time with loved ones, and also reflect on life and the coming year. I took some time today... Read more

I went out for lunch today to Noodles. It is so cold here in Minneapolis and I love their curry soup with tofu. It is a splurge but not so much so that I need to feel guilty. While at the register I impulsively purchased one of their rice crisp... Read more
