I am officially down 5% since I rejoined the Spark family on March 2. Woot! I'm down 3-ish pounds since the Spring 5% Challenge started last week which is a great start to getting a 5% loss over the next several weeks with my PAWSOME team the Sp... Read more

This is one of those days I'm glad to have a scale that measures body fat and muscle mass and not just weight. The scale went up 0.6 pounds but my muscle mass went up 1.1 lbs (yes!) and my body fat went down 0.5 lb so it all works out! I lost so... Read more

Woke up to a thunderstorm this morning which made me smile and feel happy that I was ensconced in my blankets in my bed listening to the rain and booming. I was kind of hoping for storms all day, that cozy sort of storm that begs for tea and bis... Read more

I'm doing the Caribbean ride program for beginners, and today, we went down to Cemetery Beach in the Caymans, which was probably one of the prettiest, cleanest cemeteries I've ever seen. I actually managed to sit the saddle for most of the... Read more

Every time I complete a workout, I give myself some self-love. I sit down with my post-workout snack and water and tell myself how proud I am of me. I treat my inner child to a warm hug and tell me how I'm doing amazing things. I remind myself o... Read more

I think all the work I've done around the house the last two days and spending 2-1/2 hours putting together my new NordicTrack bike has sapped more energy than doing a workout! I'm looking forward to visiting my equines tomorrow and maybe workin... Read more

I spent 90 minutes today cleaning off my old desk (so it can be dismantled and taken out of the living room) as well as ripping carpeting off the stairs and then doing general clean-up around the living/dining room. The Chewy boxes were starting... Read more

I took yesterday off because my knees were in so much agony after the hike/walk on Sunday. I had a lot of internal debate going on where I had to fight some of my repetitive thoughts which were dictating that we must work out because that's what... Read more

It was 11 years ago today that I woke up and said to myself - What if...what if for the next year instead of lamenting how overweight and out of shape of I am, I actually try to change my life? What if next March I was healthier? What if I try c... Read more

Here in Maryland we went from deliciously cool temps in the 50s to nearly 80 over night, literally. So, the mornings are absolutely heavenly right now with temps in the 50s to low 60s, slight breeze, and the world waking up to a new season. The ... Read more
