Doing this in small steps, but managed to get two 30 minutes runs in this weekend. The best part is that unlike when I've previously gotten back into running, these two runs were easy and I felt strong!... Read more

When I joined SparkPeople I was obsessed with Sparkpoints and would come in everyday and log all my food/exercise/water drunk etc, and was rewarded by seeing those point totals increase. There was also a relatively low barrier to getting the ne... Read more

So I thought it was a little goofy when the government decided to move daylight savings time. But I'm really thankful for it now! I'm just so much more at peace getting home from work while its still light out! Last night, I even got in a run... Read more

We had a retirement luncheon for one of our chemists who is moving on to hopefully less stressful endeavors and one of the senior people at the lunch ordered the all the food for our group - it was buffalo wings, onion rings and pizza! Not a lo... Read more

Getting close to my weight goal, what's next?

For the past couple of days, my weight has been 137 lbs and I now feel as if my 135 lbs weight goal is within reach. (Thanks SparkGods!) Even before attaining it, I'm already wondering whether I should then lower my goal to 130 lbs. On one han... Read more

I just got back from spending a week on the beach with my DH and 2 wonderful kids. I have to say, back in June, I was kind of dreading donning a bathing suit for 7 days in a row. But now that its over - it wasn't too bad. I think following th... Read more
