I was getting so confused trying to figure out the right way to lose weight. Should I count calories? should I go low carb? or maybe low fat? should I eat natural foods? There are so many different options! So, what was I to do? Well, I've t... Read more
Round 2
Monday, February 29, 2016      4 comments

Well, after being on a 3-4 month hiatus and gaining 8-10 lbs I figured I better get my butt back on track. I knew as I watched the scales slowly but surely heading in the wrong direction that I had to do something. So, I decided to start worki... Read more

What makes you scared? For me I've come to realize, it's falling off the weight loss bandwagon. When I started this journey in February, I was so pumped, I was so motivated, I was so ready to get this party started and get the weight off! But... Read more

I love the weekends and I am always looking forward to them, but they really make it tough for my weight loss efforts! It seems for the last few weeks, all I've been doing is eating too much on the weekend then having to work my butt off so tha... Read more
Bathing Suit Shopping!!!!
Wednesday, June 17, 2015      3 comments

Well, I had decided at the beginning of pool season, that I wouldn't purchase a new bathing suit this summer (even though mine is about 5 years old) because I still have 40-50 lbs to lose. My old one is a little too big and a little stretched o... Read more

So, I had a wedding to go to this past weekend and it was beautiful! I was very concerned about overeating and maybe drinking too much wine since it was at a winery lol! Well, thank goodness they had a sit down meal which for me is much easier... Read more

So I am single and I have a pretty good size yard to take care of. I cut about 2.5 acres of grass and I have a 2 acre pond that requires a lot of work to keep it clean and looking nice. Of course I have a riding mower, but lately I have been p... Read more

Monday, April 27, 2015      0 comments

It amazes me just how important my Spark Streaks are to me. I will do whatever it takes not to break my streak! Just the other night (at 11:30pm) I realized that I hadn't got in my minimum of 10 minutes of exercise. So, I pulled out my WII Fit... Read more
