I love NSV's. (For those who don't know, that stands for Non-Scale Victory.) For me, an NSV is always more exciting than a number on a scale. As a matter of fact, I do not even own a scale.
Fourteen weeks ago, my husband offered to star... Read more
Back From My Sparkbreak
I haven't blogged since January (!) so I'm probably a little rusty. I've been on a Sparkbreak that was intended to be short, but turned out to be longer than I expected. Now I'm back because I really missed this place and all my awesome Spark fr... Read more
Non-Scale Victories of 2017 (So far...)
My new years resolution to get back on track has been going great! Not perfect, but still pretty darned awesome. I've only missed 2 workouts so far this month. I'm struggling with eating right, but I'm doing a LOT better than I was this time las... Read more

On Day 5 Of My Streak
As part of my "fresh start" in getting back on track, I have committed to blogging more regularly. Its hard to know what to blog about right now, because I'm only on day 5 of my streak. I don't have any progress to celebrate. At least not yet! ... Read more
I haven't blogged since June. I haven't been eating right since July, and I haven't worked out since October.

Starting Over Is Not A Bummer
Today is day 2 of my streak!

My BEFORE Pictures
Today is day 9 of my streak!
Yesterday evening, I had my husband take some front and side pictures of me, and what an eye opener that was! Honestly, I knew I'd gained a lot of weight, because I was back into my size 3X clothes, and I was re... Read more
OOPS! I (almost) did it again!
Today is day 6 of my streak!
My last blog was about how I almost went off my streak by impulsively buying a pack of cookies at the country market.(I didn't eat them, though. I took them back inside and got a refund.)
Well, I almost d... Read more
My Sunday Evening NSV!
Today is day 5 of my streak!
I had a non scale victory (NSV) yesterday. It was in the evening, close to dinner time, when hubby said "Let's go for a drive." This is something he often likes to do on Sunday evenings. We just get in the car a... Read more
Never Grocery Shop On An Empty Stomach
This morning I drove my husband to work so that I could have the car to go grocery shopping. I made the mistake of not having breakfast before I went. I'm sure you know that its not a good idea to go grocery shopping when you're hungry! I've kno... Read more
Enjoy The Ride
Its been a few months since my last blog, and that can only mean one thing...that I'm way off track. When I avoid blogging, you can usually bet that... Read more
