A Dress from Half a Lifetime Ago
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      1 comments

I love sewing. It's one of my favorite hobbies. I made outfits for myself and all my friends back in high school, and was a prolific costume designer for the theatre in college. I ALWAYS make my own Halloween costume, and to me there's nothing m... Read more

So I was in Pasadena this past weekend fulfilling my MOH duties for my best friend's bridal shower. And having a blast! Meg, the lovely bride, was very happy for me and gave me lots of compliments on my weight loss. Luckily the dress shop ... Read more

Tuesday, March 30, 2010      1 comments

It's become pretty clear to me lately that I need new bras. The ones I have are practically falling off of me! (In more ways than one). So I stopped by Target this afternoon and hit up the clearance section to do a full restock of my current s... Read more

Tuesday, March 23, 2010      3 comments

I made a change in my SparkPeople account recently that I've been meaning to comment on. About a week ago, and a few days before my weigh-in where I found out I'd lost 8 pounds in the past 4 weeks, I changed my goal weight from 162 to 155. ... Read more

I didn't even realize until a few minutes ago that today was my 6th month Sparkversary, but it sure is! September 22, 2009 was the day that I made on of the best decisions of my life. I was FINALLY ready to do something about the poor lifestyle... Read more
Days 22 - 26
Friday, March 19, 2010      0 comments

Day 22: I kind of skimped on the workout, only getting a 20 minute jog in today, but I suppose I made up for it by going a little under on my calorie range. Oh well, I certainly made up for it the next day: Day 23: I was expecting to want... Read more

Saturday, March 13, 2010      1 comments

Oh my goodness, I have been getting some incredible cravings lately. Unfortunately it's been mostly sugary and salty foods, and a lot of caffeine! I have had more coffee this week than I have had in the past six months (although that's not say... Read more

Monday, March 08, 2010      0 comments

So I passed the halfway mark and then some in my Re-Spark Challenge. I wish I could say it's all downhill from here, but I sincerely doubt that. Tonight is going to get really busy at work and I'm afraid I'm going to be too tired to work ... Read more

I finally did it! I actually got some significant strength training into my workouts! I have access to a lot less equipment on this rig compared to my previous one, but I'm making the most of a couple sets of dumbbells, one elastic band, and th... Read more

Day 9: Wow! Well, let's just say yesterday had it's pluses and minuses. In the morning I got in a really intense cardio workout on the treadmill, complete with intervals on a 5% incline. But, that afternoon my PMS hormones started to wreak ha... Read more
Days 7 & 8 --- Keeping Up Momentum
Sunday, February 28, 2010      0 comments

I need to get one thing off my chest first and foremost: I binged today. I ate four hershey's nuggets all in 10 minutes after finishing my tax return. It was such an unpleasant experience that my body just cried out for CHOCOLATE. Ok,... Read more
Days 5 & 6

Yesterday I did some strength training, and I've noticed how much muscle strength I've lost since last month when I was working out at least 6 days a week and strength training for two of those days! Just another reminder to keep that consisten... Read more
Re-Spark Day 4
Wednesday, February 24, 2010      0 comments

So the workout room on the rig I'm currently stationed at has one treadmill, a bench press area, and some Bow-Flex contraption that I'm a bit afraid will strangulate me if I attempt to use it. So I'm keeping to the treadmill and the small selec... Read more

Day 2 and I have a name for my challenge! I hit the ground running, so to speak, when I joined SparkPeople last September, and I started off my weight loss journey with setting a goal to exercise at least 30 minutes every day for the next ... Read more
I stopped trying -- Let's try this again!
Sunday, February 21, 2010      1 comments

I'm up another 5 pounds on the scale, and I'm not surprised. Last month I stopped trying. I stopped working towards my goal. I exercised occasionally, but half-heartedly. I logged my foods, but I stopped controlling my portions. I have a mi... Read more
