Exercise Burn Out is Actually a Good Thing For Me
Monday, January 23, 2017      0 comments

I had and interesting day yesterday. I finished my 19th consecutive day of at least 10 minutes of exercise! I should have felt great! Right? Instead I was exhausted. So exhausted that all I could do was go lie down. That was pretty odd. But mayb... Read more

Earlier in the week, my husband announced that we were going out to dinner - to a pub - for dinner on Saturday night. When you add that to an already busy day filled with a hair appointment and errands, not to mention housecleaning - I was feeli... Read more
The Best Way to Get More Steps
Wednesday, January 11, 2017      1 comments

I am now on day eight of my program, and today I realized something. I am getting a fair amount of steps, and this is a direct result of drinking all (and more) of my water. The more I drink, the more I have to run to the bathroom, the more step... Read more
Progress Looks Different Every Day
Monday, January 09, 2017      3 comments

I've been desperate for a sign that this is working. I have only been at this, this time around for, now, seven days. It is too early for my clothes to fit differently. I know not to step on the scale every day, and to not take too much stock in... Read more

So, 2015 was great! I had focus and motivation. I lost 12 pounds! I felt empowered and strong. But at one point my work environment changed, and it got really bad in 2016. I have since taken steps to get out of a bad situation at work, and my wo... Read more
I've Been Away Too Long
Monday, March 23, 2015      3 comments

As I entered 2015, I found myself weighing more than I ever had in my life. And I realized that I had been only following the SparkPeople program around the edges. I would get my points, read an occasional article, occasionally track my food on ... Read more
Farewell FarmVille, Hello Sparkpeople
Monday, March 21, 2011      1 comments

This is what I know. I know that although spending time on the computer can sometimes be a time waster, any time I have spent on the Sparkpeople site is always time well spent. It sharpens my resolve, gives me great information, provides positiv... Read more
That darn scale. There is no way it is correct!
Saturday, October 30, 2010      2 comments

I am back on SparkPeople and have a new goal, (lose 50 lbs by the time I turn 50). And I have been thinking a lot lately about the scale. You see, I have this unusual relationship with my scale. And to be clear, I should say, scales. I am... Read more
Missed Yesterday, But I Refuse To Beat My Self Up - That Was The Old Me
Saturday, February 20, 2010      0 comments

TGIF meant sadly that I didn't get 10 minutes in. I refuse to feel guilty though because I have many reasons whyI couldn't make it happen, and I don't feel like any of them are excuses. First and formost, as a long distance runner, and having do... Read more

Tough Day But I Got It Done
Wednesday, February 17, 2010      1 comments

Today was a really tough day for me. It was my last day at my current work location, and leaving this location isn't by choice so it was pretty sad and stressful. When I went out to my car to drive home, the weather had really turned and I knew ... Read more
Love my Spark Team!
Tuesday, February 16, 2010      0 comments

Although it is only day two of my plan, and day two of my team, I love my SparkPeople team. I joined SparkGuy's 10 minute fitness club and already I am feeling more motivated. I'm sure that what I'm about to say is the point of the team, but 10 ... Read more
Starting Today But Not Feeling Motivated
Monday, February 15, 2010      0 comments

So today is yet another Monday, and I am starting over again to achieve my goals. And this might be the millionth "Monday". But perhaps this time the difference I will make is to be more positive about what I am doing. After all, I am starting a... Read more
