We had our last day with kids yesterday (Friday, May 22). The last week of school is one of the hardest times of the year for me--the kids just don't want to do anything. Luckily the school I am in schedules a few fun activities like a tug-of-... Read more
Fun time in Florida

I took my kids to Cape Canaveral Wednesday and came home Thursday. We live just north of Florida so it was easy enough to do. We visited the Kennedy Space Center. If you have never been there, it is pretty fun and educational, especially if y... Read more
Happy Easter!

It's Easter morning here and I got up early to get a shower and to see if the dress I bought a few months ago would still fit--it did! I have ironing to do though. We will be attending church at 8:30 and then home by 11. I am preparing ... Read more

I have not been very focused on my health and it shows in my clothes--bummer! It is on my mind, but I'm lacking motivation. I've been kind of busy at home lately with work and family. My husband had a surgical procedure last week and I we... Read more

Do you participate in the Spark Streak program? It's where you set a goal and then click it every day that you accomplish the goal. I fell off the wagon with my streaks until recently. I've been clicking the boxes for getting to bed by 10 wit... Read more
Met a Spark Friend (in the flesh)

I took my daughter to a Spark Jacksonville meet-n-greet at the beach yesterday. Although I live in Georgia, it is just over the state line and Jacksonville is our big city. In fact my husband commutes there to work every day. I think the date... Read more

I don't know about you, but I feel a teensy bit of pressure to support the girl scounts by buying cookies. Then I can't help but help eat them too! It happens year after year...I will get my diet program in gear after Christmas and be doing pr... Read more
A thought on clothes
Saturday, February 14, 2009      6 comments

Are you hanging on to clothes that you once fit into? Maybe from before you married? Maybe from before the babies? Maybe from when you perceived yourself "in your prime?" I advise you to do some cleaning out. I hope that everyone reading th... Read more
Just a word or 2

I have not made any real progress since the first of the year. I am having a difficult time breaking old habits. Oh well...at least I own it. Maybe I'm doing better on food choices and portion control, but not movement. Have any of you s... Read more
New Year--and a blog entry!
Thursday, January 01, 2009      5 comments

Like a lot of people, I have had my eyes OFF the prize for a while now. Once again I resolve to do better. My personal challenge is to walk 60 miles this month--about 2 miles per day--and that's do-able! What is your personal challenge? I al... Read more

It is a lot of buildup that leads to Christmas Day. Getting all the decorations up soon enough to get maximum enjoyment out of them, attending parties and gatherings, seeing all your favorite Christmas movies and TV shows, hearing Christmas son... Read more
Still swinging!

I am really proud of myself for not eating in the cafeteria once this entire semester! We teachers opine that eating cafeteria food adds 5 pounds a year. Why? Unlike the kids, we adults can pretty much eat whatever and how much we want for a ... Read more
Back on the wagon

Since the summer, I have seriously gotten away from doing my weightloss program. It is so hard sometimes to resist forbidden foods or to keep portions correct. I weighed myself and didn't like what I saw. I'm attempting to track my food now. ... Read more
Taking the lead
Saturday, December 06, 2008      4 comments

I am not usually quick to take a leadership position although I believe I have leadership potential. I have been a member of the working moms spark team for awhile, and it is not the busiest site on Spark. Still, I identify strongly as a worki... Read more
Went Hiking
Sunday, November 30, 2008      3 comments

If you know me at all, you know I struggle with a serious lazy streak. BUT I WENT ON A 7-MILE HIKE! I was actually inspired by someone--I don't know who on Spark People! I read how she lost over 100 pounds by walking and how she enjoys hiking... Read more
