I am trying my very best NOT to be depressed but it's so hard right now. It's cold and wintery outside. My body hurts...really hurts from working out. I feel so fat, overweight and like such a failure. These are the things that are depressin... Read more

Happy New Year to everyone! 10 days into the New Year and I'm vowing to get back to consistency. I feel if I make a goal to log everything and stay active on this site, I have a better chance at sticking to my plan and achieving my goals. ... Read more

It seems that the more I try to keep up with everything I want to do, the further behind I get. I had every intention of blogging everyday and tracking everything everyday but I have let life get in the way of my goals. ... Read more

I came across an article today that gives tips on how to break free from the scales. I took a good inner look at myself and have determined that I am not obsessed with the scales; I just prefer using the number as a guide or incentive to stay o... Read more

So after logging everything I ate yesterday, both the good and the not-so-good, I am happy that I stayed with in the recommended ranges. I was a little short on carbohydrates, protein, fiber and calcium but I did not go over in any category. Y... Read more

Today I measured myself. According to SP, I haven't done that since April of 2011. I know I have measured since then, but I must not have logged the measurements. I've done two boot camps and they always take measurements before and after the... Read more

After taking a week off, I went to the park tonight. I started with a slow jog and did a little further than before but I only did it once when before I did three different intervals. My shin splints started again along with pain in the backs... Read more

Tonight will be the 5th day in a row that I have walked. I do a jog/walk combo to start and then end up finishing with only a walk. Sunday was a 5K so that was 3.1 miles. Monday and Tuesday I walked at the park on two routes that added up to ... Read more

Sunday myself, my daughter and a group from our church did a CROP walk fundraiser. It was a 5K that you could either run or walk. No one in our group realized that the routes were different for the runners and walkers. Most of our group wante... Read more

I am committing to eating healthy. I am going to eliminate almost all processed foods that we are so used to consuming. I don't think it will be easy nor will it be convenient but I am making a pack to myself, my health and my well-being to lo... Read more

As most of you can tell, I haven't been consistently sparking. Life is just busy and it's difficult for me to fit everything I want and have to do into a day . No matter how much I spark on here, I am always sparking in my mind. I constantly ... Read more

Today is our weekly weigh-in for our health challenge at work. I was so dreading the dang scale and just knew I was going to have to pay. Low and behold - I've lost .4 since last week and a total of 3.2 since the beginning (8 weeks ago) ... Read more

So weigh-in wasn't as bad as I thought it might be...I gained .2 and she didn't make me pay because she said that it wasn't a true gain. YEA me! Just have to concentrate really hard on resisting the urges and temptation to fall off the wagon ... Read more

It's been one of those days where I can't seem to get enough to eat. I'm constantly hungry. I'm trying not to give in to temptation but I have caved a few times already. Not bad, though. Tomorrow is weigh-in day...I have to admit that I a... Read more

I have subscribed to Spark People Quote of the day that I receive on my cell phone. Today's quote was very close to my heart. "Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down an... Read more
