My goal is to burn a pound.
Wednesday, March 06, 2013      7 comments

Last week I upped my fitness to 2000 calories a week and surpassed it, by a lot. I feel pretty good. This week I set the goal for at least 3500. I burned more than that last week and lost a pound. It seems fitting. Burn 3500 calories, that... Read more
The Monster Under My Bed.
Tuesday, March 05, 2013      4 comments

There is a monster under my bed. It is quite scary actually. I worry about it all the time. It used to be in my bathroom, now it is under my bed. I wish I could banish it all together, but I know that wouldn't be a good idea. The monster i... Read more

A few days ago I wrote a blog about competing for weight loss, with others, yourself and with the weight itself. I received several of fantastic comments, but one stood out, in fact, I stole my title from her: "I quit weighing myself othe... Read more

Alright, I am not going to lie, I am a tad bit jealous. I have struggled for nearly 2 months to lose 4.2 pounds, my friend on the other hand, who just started, managed to do that in one week. One week! I took it with good stride. I congra... Read more

Neat thing happened to me yesterday. I found a message (lost in the OTHER folder) on fb from an old high school friend. Upon responding I looked through her photos she looked different, REALLY different. Trying not to be rude, but curiosity got ... Read more

A week ago I felt discouraged and very down on myself. I told myself I would stick to Sparkpeople another week or two and then if I didn't see results I would go back to Weight Watchers. I had struggled to lose 4 pounds over several weeks. I was... Read more

Today I want to take just a minute to focus on the positive things that happened this week. 1. My kids grandmother who suffered a stroke just before Thanksgiving, left the nursing home and returned to her home with her boyfriend this week.... Read more
The Ugly Truth
Saturday, January 19, 2013      9 comments

The truth is ugly. It always is. Nobody actually likes to admit their problems. Excuses, so much prettier than the truth. The truth is, I am scared. Scared of what? Reality. Facing the truth. Everything. I am am afraid will fail, but... Read more

I might be a bit random today. Please forgive me. I am home again today, although not because I am sick. I feel much better today, but the joys of being a substitute teacher and a mother is that sometimes I am unable to find work within th... Read more
Today I am Vegging and Reflecting.
Thursday, November 08, 2012      2 comments

I am still sick today and home "vegging" on the couch again. I feel worse when I stand, but I am starting to feel better. I have been surfing SparkPeople this morning, my favorite down time activity. I like to do this because I find it mot... Read more

UGH. I feel TERRIBLE, to say the least. Funny how fast kids spread germs, and I rarely get sick anymore. Needless to say, Zumba, walking or any other form of a work out is out for a day or two. I am going to rest, "veg out" and attempt to shake ... Read more

Good news for me. I am now co-leader of The Modesto Spark Team (official). No, I know this was no actual achievement and all it took was volunteering (I nominate...MYSELF). BUT, I still feel it is pretty cool. I have been pretty active on ... Read more
Sparkpeople is changing my life...

One pound at a time. I have done SparkPeople before, and quit. More than once. Every time I used it as a supplement to Weight Watchers. I would eventually quit that, even though I always have some success, because it was expensive to keep ... Read more
Blog lost, but not discouraged.
Saturday, October 27, 2012      2 comments

So I wrote a blog a little bit ago. I must be tired, because when I went to submit it, instead of clicking post blog, I clicked the little red dot in the upper corner of screen on my MacBook. Lost was all I had written. It was nothing prof... Read more
