This is a major shout out to my bestest friend and running buddy Shmam...not sure what I would do without her. She always listens and is super supportive when I need her most AND she checks on me when I don't feel good. Everyone needs someone wh... Read more

I'd like today to be a turning point. I've spent the day feeling stuffed, out of shape, and generally icky. This past week was a total wash and I feel like I'm turning to all of my old habits. Last summer was a huge success for me. I was e... Read more

I need to get back on track, but I feel like I buried it this week. Found every excuse in the book to not exercise AND ate everything in sight. Not the end of the world, but it's going to make the 5am run tomorrow a bit harder than usual. Someti... Read more

I actually made not one, but TWO Spark Recipes today. Me. That's a big deal. I don't cook. I kinda hate it. Really, the fewer steps between me and dinner the better. But today was kinda fun. It was nice knowing what was going into my meal. Nice ... Read more

Just wanted to take a moment to give myself a little pat on the back. Last year I started running the 3 mile path outside my office during my lunch breaks. Of course it wasn't just running at first. It was more running until I felt like my ... Read more

Well it's official, I've been invited to 2 weddings in the same week this September. Sounds like a good enough goal to me! New dresses (and therefore new shoes) are always good incentive. :) So let the Countdown to Wedding Week begin! ... Read more

Hello Spark Friends! It's been a while, but I think this might be a good time for me to get back to SP. I've decided this year to set a different goal for myself each month. For January I gave up meat. I'm now a few weeks into my February cha... Read more
