I am a mother, student, girlfriend, friend, daughter, sister, volunteer, etc. I wear many different labels depending on what time of day it is. I proudly wear these badges with honor. The badge I'm striving for is the one that declares I've hit ... Read more

Are there times when your body feels like it's telling you it needs more calories than what you should put in it? I try to follow Sparks guidelines but I know that the counters are not going to be 100% accurate. Which I do not use as an excuse t... Read more

I have to admit that I was worried about school this week. Not the classes you see but the eating around the schedule. I get super busy when school is in session. Being a mother, a student, a volunteer, etc. puts a huge strain on being able to s... Read more

So this morning I woke up, went to the bathroom, and hopped on the scale. I discovered I had lost half a pound. I gathered my clothes. Yes I weigh buck naked. Got dressed and sulked back to bed. I have to admit I felt a little deflated. I ... Read more

Yes I snubbed my nose at the wind today. I have never been a fan of cold weather. Well maybe when I was younger and could frolic the day away. To be rewarded with hot chocolate and cartoons when finished. Now the cold weather feels like work. La... Read more

My Spark anniversary is quickly approaching. This January 22nd I will have been a member for two years. Two is a good solid number. It sounds more dignified than one, yet, not old-hat like six might sound. But...there's always a but. I did... Read more

I did it! I finally did! I completed six weeks of strength training. All in a row! Woo Hoo, go me!!! It's a big deal because it's my first time in 6 months. I kept getting derailed by physical issues. Such as surgeries and the like. Now I... Read more

Summer has been a bigger threat to my healthy living than I ever thought it would be. I actually thought the opposite would be true. I pictured myself running a few miles, hiking lots of trails, eating tons of fruit, and dropping pounds. Instead... Read more

I can watch ABC episodes online. Yet what do I choose to do when I'm exhausted? Stay up to watch the season finales of Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters. I was in bed by 8:15 which is incredible in its own right. Then I remembere... Read more

I looked at those cheese fries last night at dinner and I told them to take a hike. That's right. Like the Fonz I rolled up my sleeves, donned a leather jacket, & said "Heeeeyyyy cheese fries, you make me fat, get in the trash". Well at l... Read more
