To say the least, 2013 has been a trying year, but also a learning experience. As far as my health is concerned, I really fell off the wagon. I never really returned to a regular workout regime, after hurting my back (way back in the end of Dece... Read more

Okay, it's a new month, and I haven't blogged in a long time, so here goes. I have been exercising regularly, but not as much as I would like. I broke out of the habit of 45-60 minutes daily, AND I haven't tracked my nutrition but ONCE in, I'm g... Read more
Confession and a bit of reflection
Thursday, February 07, 2013      3 comments

Hahaha...my confession is that yesterday, while my husband and I had a wonderful day off together, my day was uber-bad when it comes to food! I have no idea how many calories I ate and drank yesterday, but just a guess would be around 5,000. ... Read more

I finally bought my scale yesterday, which was long overdue. Though I haven't been on a regular exercise routine yet since I hurt my back, I have been doing some strength exercises, and I have also been making myself stay on my feet at work for ... Read more

So...on the same fateful day in which I injured my back, I took my measurements, which hadn't been done for a few months. As I've been kind of out of it for a couple of weeks, I haven't been around SP too much, and I also didn't have the chance ... Read more

...that December is kicking my butt so far! I can't blame it on the "holidays", because I have no baking to do, no Christmas shopping, no crazy hectic schedule to follow. It's just, somehow, still kicking my tail! I started last week off w... Read more

I am 5'8", and when I met my husband in 2003, I weighed between 190-195 lbs. Hubby is either 5'6" or 5'7", and he has always been fit and healthy, and needless to say, has always weighed at least 30 lbs less than I did. Over the years, my w... Read more

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      4 comments

I’ve been inspired by fellow Sparkfriends to put forth my health and fitness goals for next year. I must preface this with the fact that I am not a goal-setter. Never have been. I have a rather large phobia of failure. So putting goals out there... Read more
