Anything else to share with my team: Finished my 1st week of work at my new job. Time flies as there's lots to do. We had a sad week. DD & I had a stray kitty who seemed to have adopted us. It was hanging out on our porch; we were feedi... Read more
Long time, no blog!

It's almost a year since I wrote my last blog here on SP. It's been a tough year but things are turning around. Now I need to get back to the gym and work towards my personal goals. The 5% challenge will be helpful in that regard! So the... Read more

Forget the scale
Sunday, January 15, 2012      16 comments

The scale was up again yesterday for my Winter 5% weigh in (sorry Teddies, I thought I had posted it but was mistaken). Actually up .7 above my start weight for this challenge. I've been focusing on strength training now as my goal is to be fi... Read more

DD has 2 shows today so I do volunteer work when I'm not watching the show (and no I'm not going to see all 30 performances!) Going to a new sushi/thai restaurant for dinner (it's yummy; have eaten there twice already) then will watch the show f... Read more
What a difference a year makes!

This week was my 1 year Sparkversary. Things are so very different now. When I joined SP on 1/2/11 I weighed 189, had a BMI in the OBESE range, was a couch tater supreme who never worked out, ate lots of horrible food and barely cooked, wore s... Read more
Getting ready for the Winter 5% Challenge
Monday, November 28, 2011      12 comments

TERESA159 & THETURTLEBEAR had the right idea, putting all the pre-challenge assignments in one blog. I've been busy dealing with DD's eating disorder but decided to take some time to get these completed. #1 Getting Ready Have you got you... Read more

Tuesday, November 22, 2011      23 comments

Here's some irony for you. I joined SP this past January determined to get healthy. This would entail losing about 60 lbs. to have a normal BMI instead of the obese number I started with. Along the way I started eating healthier, cooking new ... Read more

The Fall 5% Challenge starts on Saturday, September 24, less than a week away. We have pre-challenge assignments and this is the 3rd. I redid my sparkpage to get ready and reflect what I want to accomplish in the Challenge. Also, I'm the Moti... Read more
OMG, I ran a 5k!
Friday, September 16, 2011      28 comments

The thought that I'd ever think about running a 5k, or train for a 5k, much less actually run a 5k was unimaginable to me. MOM2PIPER had been doing it and invited me to do one but I didn't. I saw TERESA159 running and KRISTI2661 running and ot... Read more
The Summer 5% is over!
Friday, September 09, 2011      12 comments

Tomorrow is the last weigh in for the Summer 5% Challenge. It was so awesome being a part of a team (Yay Teddy Bear!). You really had to push yourself so that you didn't let your team down; it wasn't all about doing your own thing. Before... Read more
