I knew there was something I was supposed to do yesterday and I couldn't remember what it was until 6 o'clock this morning. I forgot to log on to Spark. So, now I'm back at "1." ... Read more
Unexpected Progress
Thursday, June 18, 2015      15 comments

I hopped on the scale on a whim although I knew I haven't been behaving for the past week or so. I've been snacking on peanut butter Twix and sorta shortened my walks to 30 minutes give or take 5. Well... to my surprise, I was out of the ... Read more
My Hostage Situation
Sunday, June 14, 2015      13 comments

Yesterday while on my way to work I had the urgent need to go swimming. It came out of nowhere. I was a little shocked by it because I haven't been in a pool in years. I take the kids to the pool or waterpark but I never get in. I don't even own... Read more
Gets Me Everytime Time
Friday, June 05, 2015      10 comments

No matter how many times I start this journey that is called weight loss and no matter how dedicated I claim to be, I have one obstacle or flaw I can't seem to get around. Food at family gatherings. First of all, I have a pretty large fam... Read more
My first "true" leg day
Tuesday, June 02, 2015      9 comments

For motivational purposes I follow quite a few personal trainers and other folks who are really into physical fitness on Instagram. Most of them give tips and will demonstrate exercises you can use in the gym or whatever and most times I scroll ... Read more

Whenever I get all serious about losing weight, I find myself getting all caught up in the newest fad. I tried the Slim Fast back in the day, I did the Special K protein shake thing for a minute (not realizing they had 18 grams of sugar..no buen... Read more
Wanted to End the Month with a Bang...
Sunday, May 31, 2015      7 comments

I promised myself I would end May with a bang. Since I didn't make it to the gym one day last week, I would make up for it today. Well... that changed. My ankles were sore all through the night. I know it's from adding a few minutes of runn... Read more
Am I Addicted Yet?
Saturday, May 30, 2015      7 comments

So... it's Saturday and I should be getting ready for work but I'm using my combined skills of procrastination and avoidance instead. I know I have to go in but what I really want to do is go to the gym or the park. I now have this thing ... Read more
Wanna Be Like Mike? No..

More like Janet. (Ms. Jackson if you're nasty) Ok..so, I have read and often go back and read a book titled the Secret. You may have heard of it. Oprah made it a big deal years ago and there was a documentary. I think you can find on Netfli... Read more
Workouts: The Good Kinda Distraction
Tuesday, May 26, 2015      8 comments

I have to confess something. When I see these diehard fitness folks in the gym and on Instagram and on Facebook I say to myself, "they must not have a life outside of the gym." Sometimes I go the opposite with it and say, "They must be using wor... Read more

You know that day when you wake up and get dressed in your "workout" clothes because you plan on hitting the gym first thing but then one of your sons comes in and reminds you he has basketball practice for the summer league which only lasts abo... Read more
The Cheat meal (yea right, Cheat day)
Saturday, May 23, 2015      9 comments

I'm on my way to the gym in a few minutes but didn't want to go too long without posting a blog. Yesterday, ended up being a "cheat day" instead of a day with a "cheat meal." We found ourselves at Denny's on a whim and I planned to or... Read more
We had a little victory this morning and I got "the tea."
Thursday, May 21, 2015      7 comments

I probably posted about this during my last go 'round but I'm not the only one in my house who needs to drop some weight. My fiance' is also on this journey. We agreed to do this together; however, he tends to slack-up and will indulge in a swee... Read more
I Want to Thank The Mirror
Tuesday, May 19, 2015      16 comments

I've always owned a floor length mirror. Of course, we all need one to make sure our pants' legs aren't too short, decide if we should tuck a shirt in or not (couldn't tell you the last time I did that), take selfies and practice twerking, you ... Read more
