Am I gonna sh1t or get off the pot???
Sunday, August 11, 2013      3 comments

I have to be really honest with myself.... am I ready/willing to put in the effort to lose weight? For the past several years, I've been really good at keeping up intentional cardio sessions: at least 45 min, 3x a week. And, for the last yea... Read more
I love this place!

We arrived late last night at this wonderful B&B. It's so beautiful and comfortable. I'm looking forward to spending another night here. And for breakfast, I'm having "Eggs Benedict Light". But when the lady explained to me how it's made, I... Read more

I'm wrapping up one of the better weeks. On Monday I took the kids and their friends to a new swimming pool. I stayed out of the pool but worked out in the fitness room - brand new equipment! I've been biking with DS to his "emergency vet" d... Read more

I'm getting back on track. I hope it lasts. I have a challenging weekend coming up as I will be away from home, and eating at unfamilar places. It'll be a change of pace to get away, with husbands, sans enfants! Today, I will concentrate ... Read more
Day 6 August Challenge review
Wednesday, August 07, 2013      2 comments

Okay, my August challenge to myself is a miserable failure. And I don't like failure! Am I too hard on myself? I think it's probably pretty common for a person to be disappointed when a certain target is not met, and to be disappointed in ... Read more

Well I finally won the battle of the bagels. I used that last tempting one for my sons lunch today. I have to admit that i'm not doing a stellar job at reducing my caloric intake, but I don't think the daily range that SP gives me considers... Read more
Day Four August challenge review

No perfection here. I was doing pretty well up until the evening. I had a Kettleman's Herb and Cheddar bagel (with their tasty cream cheese of course) and it was so good, I had another. I deliberately chose to "blank out". As if those calori... Read more

Well, I thought this accountability with daily entries would keep me on track but it is becoming downright embarrassing. I've majorly binge 2 of the first 3 days! Unfortunately, i'm not even exaggerating. I don't know what's wrong with me. I... Read more

First of all, it was the twin's birthday and neither of them was here. Very strange. However, Twin A did manage to call in the evening and today I pick up Twin B. Getting closer to being back to normal. As far a diet wise, all went well ... Read more

Although I wasn't ideal yesterday, I managed to keep my head above water --- and that's all I'm aiming for right now. I'm hoping my taking the August challenge, I will be more mindful of what I'm eating and drinking. I have so many downfalls:... Read more

Happy 20th year Anniversary to me...

and my husband although I'm not sure if "happy" is the correct description for the last 20 years. Overall, it's been good. Life's events have happened during that time: weddings of relatives and friends, deaths of relatives, birth of our own ... Read more
Today's plan
Tuesday, July 30, 2013      1 comments

My habit is to plan for the upcoming week: especially when I'll get in cardio and strength, and any outdoor activities that are weather dependent. So yesterday I did a double workout at the gym: 45m cardio and my strength workout (about 35 min... Read more
I'm not where I want to be: kodos to me for trying or shame for failing???
Monday, July 29, 2013      1 comments

I was reading the blogs of other Sparkers who, I assume, are doing better than me (because I'm doing so poorly that everyone must be doing better...) Then, I realized I've been selling myself short. Yes, I haven't lost any weight to speak of,... Read more
I'm really glad I took the easier way

My family came over for my twins birthday and all went well. I had purchased a DQ peanut butter ice cream cake. I wanted to get the smaller one because I didn't want too much leftover, but didn't want to appear 'cheap' or stingy, so purchased ... Read more
