Count down to Mardi Gras ball gown
So, I noticed my last blog was two years ago. I'm still here, still fighting, still about the same size, although I've been up and down in that time. It's been almost a year since I've been in the excercise routine. I've tried here and there ... Read more
Cleanse was successful
Much to my amazement, I made it through the 10 day master cleanse without fail. I lost 12 pounds in that 10 days and my stomach is flatter than it has been in a long long time. My pants are practically falling off of me.
I'm easing my w... Read more
Day 5 of 10 Day Cleanse
I made it half way. Not much to say, yesterday was the same as the day before. Really sick of the lemonade. Last night I made my drink with a lime, that helped.
I do feel much better. My pants button easily and don't bind. My stomach i... Read more
Day 4 of a 10 day Cleanse

On Day 1, I got the worst headache of my life (my caffeine addiction slapping me in the face) and I slept from mid afternoon till morning of ... Read more
2 Days of Calorie Deficit Tracking Opened my Eyes
I've read through so many other posts about calorie deficit tracking and thought I would give it a shot. I calculated my resting BMR.
WOMEN: 655 + (4.35 x weight in lbs) + (4.7 x height in inches) - (4.7 x age in years)
MEN: 66 + (6.23 ... Read more
Goal 1 - Check
Two weeks ago, my last blog, I set a goal of losing 3 pounds to be 155 by 10/7/08, today. I stepped on the scale this morning, cringing, not expecting to see it and there it was 155.4! If you round off, which in this case, I think I will, I di... Read more
Back to Square 1 (Stage 1)
I've decided to move myself back into stage 1. I've gained weight since I've been on spark, so maybe I missed something along the way and I'm going to start over.
So, today is my new Day 1. 158 lbs.
Goal 1 155 lbs 2 weeks 10/7/08 ... Read more
Okay, so I made this grand plan for August and followed through on only about half. I'm not losing the plan, though, just continuing on....

All in August
So, new month coming, thought I would set some hard goals for August.
Nutrition: Stay Clean
My kids are coming home this weekend. They spend the month of July with their dad and that gave my husband and I a chance to really tweak our di... Read more
Setting some goals
Yesterday I said I was going to do 60 min on the elliptical, I hit 30. But, I was sweaty, so I think it's still good. I've been extremely sore from all the strength training so a day of light cardio was good.
Today, I've got shoulders and... Read more
The dinner diva is an angel!
I have to say this again. The meals on the savingdinner.com menu mailers are awesome. I have been buying so much produce and here's the amazing part, we've been eating it. I always have bought fruit and vegetables, because I know we should ea... Read more
Early morning breakthrough
I like to get up a little earlier in the morning than I have to. I tell myself that I can get up just a little earlier than that and go ahead and exercise for the day, but I never do. What I like to do is make a pot of coffee, feed the cat, le... Read more
I'm on my second week of following the menu plans from the savingdinner.com website. I love already knowing what I'm preparing for dinner and having a plan when I go shopping for the groceries. I'm following the low carb plan and my husband an... Read more
One step forward Two steps back
Well, once again, the weekend took me backwards. I didn't log my nutrition, I ate a couple of things I know I shouldn't have, I had a couple of drinks, I didn't watch my water and fiber like I know I should and wouldn't you know it.....I'm goin... Read more
80 Miles in May!
I did it! We had a challenge at work using the Nike + and ipods for the total number of miles in May. I'm no runner, but I signed up for the challenge. I told myself at the start I was going to shoot for 80 miles. A big goal for me. I looke... Read more
