Splurge Days
Monday, May 16, 2016      2 comments

I have noticed that a popular question that a lot of new people ask is, "What are your thoughts on splurge days?" I have asked it myself when first starting out here. I have also noticed, a lot of people will tell newbies that splurging is a hor... Read more

I've not updated in a while... But I have lost 26 pounds so far. I have 20 more pounds until I'm FINALLY under 200 pounds (199). I would like to lose that in 2 months, 3 at the most. I find that to be a completely realistic goal. Sinc... Read more

I'm beyond happy to report I have lost 20 pounds since I started back SparkPeople the 2nd week in January! I feel amazing! I have about 105 lbs left to get rid of, but I find it easier when I focus and reward myself 10 lbs at a time :) I def... Read more

Pretty irritated. I live on a one lane, back country road close to the interstate. I love walking up and down the road with my kids, great exercise, plus quality time with them. Another added bonus is no one travels the road unless they live in ... Read more

I got my Jawbone Up today! Yay! I love it so far. It's really simple... not bulky or annoying on my wrist. My son (almost 2 yrs old) doesn't know what to think about it though. He keeps pointing at it and trying to take it off. Today has been a... Read more

Pretty excited. My husband and I went to visit some good friends yesterday. I found out that one was trying to lose weight and she asked if I would be her fitness buddy. Of course I said yes. I had been looking for someone that I was close to, a... Read more
It's hard...

I heard a quote from one of the real housewives of Beverly Hills. She said, "It's hard to not eat sweets. It's hard to not eat the fattening hamburgers or pizza. It's hard to eat a lot of salads. It's hard to workout 6 times a week. But after yo... Read more

Am I alone...?
Thursday, January 28, 2016      8 comments

Am I alone when it comes to thinking extremely negative thoughts sometime? Like you get a craving for cookies or something and you tell yourself, "I don't know why I'm even trying to lose weight, I'm fat and I'll probably stay this way forever."... Read more

Day 2 of FINALLY motivating myself to get up and exercise! I kept hearing everyone talk about Zumba. I kind of thought it was a bit ridiculous, the music that is, but tonight I figured I'd give it a shot... And what do ya know... the music is ri... Read more

Being a one income family really sucks sometime. I love being able to be at home with kids and taking care of my home, all the while going to college (I mean, my kids aren't going to be living with me forever. But weeks like this week make me se... Read more
