Sparkpeople Didn't Change Your Life- YOU DID
Thursday, September 22, 2011      7 comments

I seldom do this. By "this" I mean respond to the Sparkmail of the day. This is because I often do not read them. I know! I am a horrible Sparker. However, today's got me thinking and I wanted to share those thoughts. This isn't even reall... Read more
New (Fit) Mommy
Thursday, September 15, 2011      5 comments

Well, I've been scarce for a while (you can say that again!) The good news is that I did not entirely fall off the fitness wagon during my Spark hiatus. I gained a total of 15 pounds during my pregnancy (woo!). Unfortunately, I began batt... Read more
Week 20: Baby's Gender Revealed!
Monday, March 14, 2011      6 comments

First of all, sorry for my sudden disappearance. I had a "perfect storm" of events that led me to the decision that a one week hiatus was the only thing to be done. My grandparents came from America, my father had a health scare (resolved, I'm g... Read more

Wednesday, March 02, 2011      5 comments

Whew. This is hard work. I'm making good progress. If I just accept that I won't have time to paint the hallway, then I'm actually in a really good place at this point. I think I'm going to just proceed as if I will not be doing that befor... Read more
The Weeklong Clean-a-thon

My grandparents are coming to visit one week from tomorrow. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Ok. I love my husband, but my husband is a slob. Because I moved here into HIS apartment, I've had ~10 years of Bachelor living to dig my way through. I... Read more

I passed the 18 week mark on Friday. I have to admit, I'm in a bit of a funk. My weight has finally stopped it's slow but steady downward march and has started to do some interesting things (including a 2 lb increase in 2 days). I know it's fine... Read more
My Heart Races
Friday, February 25, 2011      3 comments

Today I visited my sister-in-law. When we were picking her daughter up from Kindergarten, I spied an advertisement for a family oriented 5k coming up next month. It's fairly difficult for me to find 5k and 10k runs in my city. N├╝rnbeg doesn't se... Read more
Community Goals and Commitments
Wednesday, February 23, 2011      1 comments

I recently joined the SP Community Team. I made this commitment because I recently realized something about myself. I realized that, at this point, being able to motivate someone else in a journey like mine is as or more motivating than the weig... Read more

Tuesday, February 22, 2011      1 comments

In its infinite wisdom, Gmail suddenly decided to start sending all my Sparkpeople notifications to my spam filter. It only took me a week and a half to figure it out. And here I just thought that nobody liked me, haha! So, this is j... Read more
I Found my Fat Jeans!
Monday, February 21, 2011      1 comments

I know that sounds like a silly thing to celebrate, but hear me out. When I moved to Germany last October, I could bring nothing with me but what I could shove into two suitcases. Needless to say, clothing that doesn't fit anymore wasn't h... Read more

I've spent a lot of time recently thinking about childhood obesity. Both my husband and I were "husky" essentially from the get go. While I've come forward in leaps and bou... Read more
Pregnancy Health Report: Week 17
Friday, February 18, 2011      2 comments

Today my Bean is 17 weeks "old"! For the most part I have nothing to complain about. I shaved off another pound this week, and considering my tummy and what is in it is growing steadily, every ounce at this point is a minor coup. More impor... Read more
It's Humbling
Thursday, February 17, 2011      2 comments

It is absolutely amazing to me how much my energy ebbs and flows since becoming pregnant. It's profound. It's unpredictable. It's... kind of a pain in my butt. I just never know which days I'm going to wake up feeling 100% or when I'm goin... Read more
When the Spark Gets Heavy
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      3 comments

I will never forget the day when I realized that my own weight loss was having a positive impact on somebody I knew. I was so proud of myself, and I quickly realized that the possibility to pay it forward or "Pass the Spark" as we say here, is a... Read more
