I wanna be like Mom!
Monday, December 31, 2007 6 comments
Happy holidays to everyone! I haven't posted a blog entry in a while. My mother was here for Christmas from California. I hadn't seen her since January and she looks good! She had on a pair of jeans the other day and looked so slim! I t... Read more
Lifting yourself up and continuing forward
Wednesday, December 05, 2007 5 comments
I decided to blog about the Healthy Reflections email I received from SparkPeople yesterday. It contained a quote by Elvis Presley :-) "When things go wrong don't go with them." I used to be the Queen of pity parties. All it took was... Read more
My favorite healthy foods
Saturday, December 01, 2007 3 comments
If the following foods were readily available to me or prepared for me, I could eat them all time. Or least enough to fill me up instead of junk food: brussel spouts peas asparagus cabbage w/bell peppers and green onions spinach ... Read more

I'm thankful for: -- feeling sore because it means my body is getting stronger. --all this extra fat I'm carrying around so if I'm ever stranded in a hole somewhere, my body can feast off of itself for days....right? --my healthy ... Read more
Confession: I hate running
Tuesday, November 13, 2007 2 comments
Whether it's outside or on the treadmill, I just really don't like it. I've tried to embrace it and learn to love it because 1) I LOVE the results I get from doing it consistently, 2) I feel like superwoman after a good run and 3) it just sound... Read more
Being healthy on vacation
Friday, October 12, 2007 5 comments
I'm leaving for Orlando this evening, so that got me thinking about something: how common is it for people to stick to their exercise and diet plans while they're out of town? For the past few years, I've made sure I check to see if the hotel ... Read more
I Love SparkPeople!

Okay, I don't know if it's the fact that I'm just a sap or it's this straight Vodka I'm drinking - why not 'fess up? My food and exercise journal are public anyway! But a member from one of my teams just reached out to me this evening (you kno... Read more
Move over, life!

Ha! "Life" shouldn't get in the way so much for me anymore after this weekend...well at least not the WORK part. I've been swamped and exhausted and I feel like I've been neglecting SP and my goals here. But now that I can breathe, I'm ready ... Read more
Week 24 - Is this the end?
Wednesday, September 12, 2007 4 comments
Ha! Hardly...but it's the end of my "6 months to a new me" campaign. And I have to say, I am rather disappointed in myself. I've lost about 4 lbs total, due to a lot of ups and downs. I still can't believe the end of 2007 is only a few month... Read more
Week 23 - ground turkey, soy milk and egg whites?
Saturday, September 08, 2007 2 comments
So it seems like I'm in this constant battle with my bootcamp instructor over what I eat. Now that he sees I'm not inhaling the sweets everyday like I used to, he's starting to focus on better food choices. I still drink 2% milk. SORRY - I've... Read more
Week 22 - "You're still eating like that?!?"
Wednesday, August 29, 2007 6 comments
So before we start our bootcamp every morning or during our stretches, the trainer reads our food journal. When he's outraged or disgusted, he reads the offending item out loud. For example..."ICE CREAM!?!?!" Then circles it in red ink in our... Read more

Saturday, August 25, 2007 1 comments
Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary and we're spending the weekend out of town. It should be nice, hopefully a little romanitc. ;-) Very cliche', but time sure does fly! What I'm really thinking about is eating that top tier of our wedding ... Read more
Week 20 - Good Mood!
Monday, August 13, 2007 3 comments
Wow...week 20 already. I think I should stop counting weeks now. No, I'll go to Week 24, which is about 6 months. 6 months gone by with not much results. Shame, shame. Oh well, WHATEVER! I'm in a great mood right now! Not just because... Read more
Week 19 - Elastic waist bands
Thursday, August 09, 2007 0 comments
Another way to tell whether or not you're making progress is by the way your clothes fit. Hmmm....I've been wearing A LOT of loose fitting tops and skirt/shorts with elastic waist bands this summer. I don't dare try on any of the jeans I gave... Read more
