Obamacare, I am IN YOU!
Well, after much aggravation, tons of cussing at modern technology, I'm now officially enrolled in an insurance plan. For the first time in 10 years, I can afford to go to a doctor. Got a pretty decent deductible, and with the tax credit, I'm o... Read more
Circuit training... bloopers and pain
So our gym has added a premium class with a football training coach. Pretty standard circuit training, a little bit of crossfit-inspired (including those big ropes.)
I have no intention of spending extra money on it (it's $10 a class, or $... Read more
Well, that was a dumb move
So tonight I had one of my favorite dinners. Velveeta shells and cheese! I love this stuff. It's definitely a trigger food for me, but hey, I had a limited amount, and that's not the problem. I mixed it with Rotel and tuna. Pretty tasty and fill... Read more
Made the switch
So after I hit the gym this morning (and I'm proud of my trip) I got the red "burning too many calories" message in my fitness tracker. So I decided now would be a good time to make the switch to the variable calorie tracker, the new one that SP... Read more
Getting serious about strength
Going to the gym with my friend has me wanting to get serious about strength again. I've gone too long without a regular program, and I always love the way I feel after a good workout.
I'm no slouch, although it's been a while since I real... Read more
Nachos and Nostalgia
Today has been a great day. I got a lot of GOOD sleep last night; went to bed about 10:30, with my oldest daughter. Normally I go to bed at 1 or later! We slept well, and my husband apparently slept on the couch, LOL. No sympathy, means I rested... Read more
So a friend of mine joined my gym, and was trying to get me to go, so I figured... why not? I'm paying for the stupid membership.
We went, and I feel so good right now. The only drawback is she's one of those that likes to go for hours at ... Read more
Being broke does have its advantages
When you have no money, there's no money for sodas, junk food, and fast food.
We're in a really tight spot right now... and by tight spot, I mean just applied for food ... Read more
All's well that ends well.
Went for my mammogram yesterday. All's clear! Everything looks normal, although the radiologist did recommend that I get regular yearly mammograms given my family history.... Read more
Binge and gain
So yesterday was a very binge-y day. It was unpleasant all around; my emotional state was in shreds, and I ate as a result. And not a veggie in sight the whole day. Serious... Read more
Family history? Not me!
So, my mother is a third-generation breast cancer survivor. Last year, she was diagnosed with stage 1 aggressive breast cancer.
So naturally, I've been doing regular self-exams. We almost certainly have the gene, alth... Read more
Shopping for clothes? I don't mind. Too much.
SparkCoach challenged me today to blog about this, and it struck a cord, so why not.
When I first started here at Sparkpeople, I was in a bad place; I was trying to find myself again.
I got into exercise, and started kicking butt and... Read more
I just got a smartphone. It's not a super great one, but it's got a *recent* version of android (newer than my Acer tablet) and I like it.
It retails at $100, I got it for $70 at Target. I'd been planning to get one anyway, but that was a ... Read more
I know some of you guys have been worried about me; I've gotten periodic messages, comments, and SparkGoodies from many of you. Thank you for that; it means more than you know!
As some of you already know, November is a REALLY tough time f... Read more
So what happened
I've been gathering my thoughts, trying to figure out how to say this. Trying to decide if I should at all.
But I've always been open in my life, and at church last week, my preacher said something that resonated with me.
"Sin grows ... Read more
