Blog challenge, but I'm feeling blah
Monday, January 17, 2011      4 comments

The members of the Walktober Sparks team have been challenged (dared, actually!) to blog every day this week. I'm going to try to do it, so here's the blog for the first day. I've been feeling really blah lately. I don't have much energy, and... Read more
A kind word from a stranger
Tuesday, December 21, 2010      6 comments

Last Thursday I was late for my appointment with my trainer (due to bad weather and terrible traffic). When I got to the gym, he worked with me for the remaining time of my training session, then got me started on some exercises to do on my own... Read more

For a good while now I haven't been making much progress on the scale when I weigh in (which is usually weekly). In the past few months, though, I have been seeing a definite difference in my clothes and how they fit. I can now fit into some o... Read more
Failing to plan is planning to fail
Sunday, October 31, 2010      4 comments

Several times in the past few weeks I've heard or read that "failing to plan is planning to fail". I really needed to hear that and take it to heart. I'm usually a big planner and list-maker, but lately I haven't been doing that. I've been fe... Read more

I'm a teacher, and with school starting back up again in August, I haven't spent much time on SparkPeople lately. Things are always crazy at the beginning of the school year, and I needed to cut down on my computer time. Now things have kind o... Read more
Excited about training more!
Saturday, July 17, 2010      6 comments

I've been going to a trainer at my gym once a week for about a year now. When I went this week, he said my contract was running out, and asked if I wanted to talk to the manager about renewing it. I said I definitely wanted to renew the contra... Read more

My boyfriend is going to run the Peachtree Road Race tomorrow, and I went with him to the race expo where he had to pick up his race number. I didn't really know what to expect, but I wanted to check it out and see what was there. It turned ou... Read more
My nutrition so far this week, and on into the future
Saturday, July 03, 2010      1 comments

As usual, my nutrition this week has not been as good as my exercise. I've always been a picky eater, and of course, a lot of the foods I like are not healthy. So while I've made a lot of improvement in exercising since I've joined SparkPeople... Read more
My exercise so far this week
Thursday, July 01, 2010      1 comments

I'm proud of myself for doing a good job of exercising so far this week. I've been to the gym twice, once for my weekly appointment with my trainer and once on my own (and I saw him then and he said he was glad to see me there working out, whic... Read more
Wow, I haven't blogged in almost a month
Monday, June 21, 2010      4 comments

I've been doing other things on SP in the past month (except for the one week I was on vacation), but I didn't realize it had been so long since I wrote my last blog entry. Of course there have been many positives and negatives during that mont... Read more

On Saturday, May 15, I walked the Brookhaven Bolt 5K! I had registered for a few other 5K walks during the last few months, but for various reasons didn't do them. So I'm very proud of myself for finally following through, and actually getting... Read more

What you listen to when you walk or run
Thursday, April 22, 2010      9 comments

I'm one of those "old" people who actually doesn't own an ipod. I'm thinking about getting one, but I haven't done it yet. I do think it would be nice to have when I'm exercising, and have the beat of the music match my pace. Right now, if I'... Read more

I'm finally making some definite, consistent, observable progress. As we say here on SparkPeople, "WooHoo!" I'm one of those people who is really affected by the winter season. It affects my mood, my energy, etc. Now that warm weathe... Read more

Saturday, April 10, 2010      5 comments

In my March 24th blog I expressed some of my disappointment and frustration with myself for not being able to do better on this journey to healthier living. I was not feeling motivated, and I was not making much progress. Well since then, some... Read more
