Filters and Storm Clouds
Saturday, April 13, 2019      14 comments

Recently I was having a conversation with a close friend that said he liked the fact I wasn’t “fake” on Spark. I am who I am, and I don’t try to be something I’m not. In some ways, that is true, and in others, not really. The realit... Read more
Proceed With Caution: Rant Ahead
Wednesday, March 06, 2019      18 comments

Recently I posted something about not being able to change the world with your opinion, but rather by your example. It’s something I believe in, but yet I struggle with, because after converting my diet to a vegan one, many posts on the Spa... Read more
What the Health
Saturday, January 12, 2019      7 comments

My decision to go vegan 2 weeks ago was the result of a couple of things. The first was a news story regarding the abuse of dairy cows back in November 2017. The story was horrific, and if you care for animals at all, it would have struc... Read more
No F***ing Way

That was my reaction to the mention of going vegan 2 years ago. “Those people are friggin’ nuts. They don’t even eat honey!” Just the thought was so incomprehensible, I tried Keto first. I mean, giving carbs is easier than giving up meat, a... Read more
Strength in Adversity.
Monday, May 28, 2018      5 comments

This weekend has been so dreary. Not your typical holiday weekend, but considering we had a tropical storm passing by us in the gulf, the weather could have been a lot worse. I found out a friend of mine from church has cancer. And it has alrea... Read more
First Blog in a Very Long Time
Saturday, May 26, 2018      5 comments

Ok, so I haven't blogged in well over a year since I tried the LCHF diet. It's a diet. Not a lifestyle change. I could not stay on it for so many reasons. The first being that after 3 weeks, I only lost a pound. So now I'm trying a less extreme ... Read more
I Survived My First Week
Thursday, April 14, 2016      10 comments

So after struggling through some serious cravings, I muscled through my first week of a LCHF diet. Low carbs, high fat. My biggest obstacle wasn't ditching the carbs though. My biggest obstacle was getting over my fear of consuming fat, and the ... Read more
Last Goodbyes
Tuesday, April 05, 2016      5 comments

No, I'm not leaving Spark. Don't think I could ever end a relationship with a group that has been nothing but supportive, rewarding, and so positive to my health. No, I'm saying my last goodbyes to carbohydrates for a while. This is real... Read more
Decisions, Decisions
Sunday, February 15, 2015      7 comments

January 25th, 2015 was an amazing day. The day of my first official race. I joined a training team that guided us through the all the ups and downs, made some great friends, and learned about myself. It's all about committing yourself to accompl... Read more
Acceptance
Wednesday, November 12, 2014      6 comments

I have not written a blog in ages...almost 5 months, to be exact. I've sat down in front of my computer so many times, and just couldn't bring myself to write anything. I think there are a few reasons why but the one that sticks out the most is ... Read more
Setbacks
Tuesday, June 24, 2014      8 comments

Don't you hate it when you have the motivation just oozing out of yourself, but keep getting sidetracked by life ciircumstances? Three weeks ago, I had a somewhat-terrible upper respiratory infection. I say "somewhat terrible" because I've... Read more
Cutest. Puppy Pics. Ever.

I had to post the most recent photos of the new puppy. She has grown leaps and bounds since we got her 3 weeks ago. I think I will post new photos regularly. ... Read more
First Day of April
Tuesday, April 01, 2014      8 comments

I am setting a goal for myself to lose at least 5 pounds this month. I am still carrying around the 15 pounds I've gained, and I want it gone. My day has been crazy busy. So far today I've: 1. Got my 3 girls off to school 2. Ran 2 miles ... Read more
Public Enemy No. 1
Friday, March 28, 2014      7 comments

I've had tons of reasons for not working out. If I could get paid for creating excuses, I'd be a wealthy woman right now. My motivation has a tendency to come and go, and lately, it has been way gone. But for 2 weeks now I have used this creatur... Read more
Why Intermittent Fasting
Saturday, January 11, 2014      15 comments

I came to the reality the other day that I have been on Spark for almost 4 years. What a journey! I have come a long way but I've always given myself some grief that I never reached my goal weight. I was so close...just 5 pounds away. Imagine ru... Read more
