With the encouragement of several friends, I am once again starting over. I've gained back a lot of the weight that I took off back in 2007. Not all of it, but a lot. While I still have no taste for junk foods, I found myself overindulging mo... Read more

How many times have I posted this blog? How many more times will I do it before it finally sticks? After yet another struggle with overmedication, I have climbed back on the bandwagon. Food is not my friend right now, with my stomach rebellin... Read more

Sure, I've been sore for months. But this morning is different. This morning, I'm sore because I actually used muscles. I can feel the muscles in my legs, glutes, and abs! I had forgotten what a wonderful feeling it is to wake up in the morn... Read more

This past year has been one of many changes and surprises. November '09 was particularly memorable. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and met an amazing man. Over the course of the next six months, my body went through the rigors of chemo. ... Read more

I know it's been quite a while since I've put anything here. I've been focusing more on my "real life" and less on Spark, but still on plan. I was also planning and then taking the trip of a lifetime. I spent 9 days in the Republic of Korea. ... Read more

This summer is crazy. I've been very active, eating healthy, and enjoying every minute. I just haven't been here. I apologize to my Spark Friends who have missed me. For most of the summer I will be in and out. I'm way behind at work, so I... Read more
Sidetracked again ... who's shocked? (Not me)

What is easy? It is easy to make excuses. It is easy to tell myself "tomorrow." It is easy to say "just one." It is easy to think "I'm mostly good." It is easy to say "I don't feel up to it right now." It is e... Read more

Last night I did something unthinkable. I booked international airfare to the Republic of Korea. My brother is currently stationed there with the US Army and our family has been discussing visiting him for quite some time. We finally took the... Read more

I've said it so many times. I'm tired of the status quo. I need to refocus. I need to find my inner motivation. Last week, one of my teams posted a link to Spark's bootcamp. I realized how much trouble I was having keeping going and how muc... Read more

Tax season has departed and with it my "second job." While I kept largely to my food plan for the duration, I still struggle with exercise. It's so easy to fall into bad habits. At the moment I'm struggling with a bad cold that has left me wi... Read more
