A is for Age: Turning 40 in September, though I'll flatly deny it. B is for Butt: Hurts a lot from all the squats I've been doing. Looking forward to it being more firm & lifted. Saddle-bags begone! C is for Career: Jobs- Server/Busine... Read more

As a reward for pulling up my big girl pants and doing my before & after pictures, I decided I would give myself a pedicure. It was long overdue. As a server, I'm on my feet quite a bit. It was nice to take the time to pamper myself a little bit... Read more

After going back and forth about doing "before" shots, I figured I'd regret not taking them. I hope to not pass this way again, and it would be silly to purposefully gain weight just so I would have pictures of me as a basis of comparison for la... Read more
Some personal rewards
Thursday, January 28, 2010      5 comments

One of the areas that I was weak in when I joined Spark the first time around in August 2008 was rewarding myself for accomplishments. As most women and moms do, I tend to put others first and put my needs on the backburner. So, when I recommitt... Read more

Yesterday, I was thinking about the planned run I had missed. Even though my 12 y.o. would likely be home from school in the next 1/2 hour, I decided it was now or never. My bank is .5 miles away from my house. So, off I ran. I got to the ATM an... Read more

Since the weather was nice on Saturday, and I didn't have to work the lunch shift, my husband mapped out a route in Fairmount Park totalling 2.5 out & back. We gathered the troops, my son more reluctant than my daughter, and herded them into the... Read more

There are so many changes I've been attempting to implement during these past two weeks. Unfortunately, one thing I've been having difficulty with is finding the time to blog more frequently. I guess, so long as I make the time to blog weekly, i... Read more

Saturday, January 09, 2010      3 comments

This morning, I woke up and faced the bathroom scale. I didn't expect big numbers, but was hoping for at least a pound or two. I kept my calories, carbs, fats, & proteins in check for the week. I did all the videos for the SYB Boot Camp. Not wel... Read more
