Maintenance- so far, so good!
I've been in maintenance mode for over 2 months now, and so far it's going well. My life got a lot more hectic and stressful, but with a lot of prayer, I'm handling it.
Without going in to a lot of detail, I discovered that on top of marit... Read more
Happy Birthday to me!
Today was my 37th birthday. This past year has been a big one for me, as I gave birth to my fourth baby (but the first baby in over 11 years) just before my birthday last year. Getting fit and losing baby weight was NOT high on my priority lis... Read more
Activity Tracker and Random Musings
Wonderful news! My middle daughter moved our piano to sweep underneath it today, and found my Spark Activity Tracker!!! I'm so happy. I got it for Christmas, and lost it within a week of receiving it. I was really bummed out, especially sinc... Read more
I've been within a pound of my goal weight for the past month, so I think it's safe to say that I've reached my goal. Finally! Four years after joining SP, I've taken off the last of that 20 pounds.
I don't really feel a sense of victor... Read more
getting back in the game
The past several weeks my weight has been lower than it was before I got pregnant, which I am very happy about. I can't be proud of it, because it is through no effort of my own. I can place this success entirely on the appetite of my little c... Read more
birth, and life afterward
Not really sure where to start, since it's been so long since I've blogged here. The rest of my pregnancy went very well. I was feeling great, even when I was overdue. At my 41 week check, my blood pressure was a little high, but the doctor w... Read more
21 weeks along
Not a lot has been happening with me, health wise. I'm well into my 2nd trimester now, and have gotten a tiny bit of energy back, but I'm not feeling anywhere close to my normal energy level. I got a prenatal workout DVD. It has a cardio sess... Read more
11 weeks along
I've been feeling pretty good this week. My nausea seems to be subsiding. Some days I have more energy than others. I really can't complain about the nausea and fatigue. I really only had around 3-4 weeks of it. I think I'm starting to feel... Read more
Figured out what has been happening with my body...
Over the past several months my weight has pretty much stayed in the same range of 2-3 pounds. That range lowered by about 3 pounds in the past 6 months, so there really hasn't been any big change. Then a couple of weeks ago it started droppin... Read more
Last month at my daughter's dance recital, one of the tap classes performed a dance in which they used hula hoops. Not just plain old hula hoops- this was hooping in the dark with black lights, so their hula hoops, tights, face paint, accessori... Read more
finished New You Bootcamp
I finished the New You Bootcamp here on SP this week, and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I had been looking forward to this program ever since I found that stability ball at the thrift store in the midst of my previous workout plan. I... Read more
April week 3
Hmmm, it's been a little while since I blogged about my New Year's resolutions, and I've found that the longer I went without blogging, the more I got off track. To be truthful, I had to go back to my old blogs to remember what all of them were... Read more
February week 1
I did not have a stellar week. My weigh in this morning showed a .6 lb. gain, and all I can say is that I'm suprised it wasn't more. I did well with exercise this week, but consistently overate. Late in the week I got a good deal on M&M's, an... Read more
January week 4
I didn't do a great job of keeping track of what I did this week, but that's ok. My main priority was to rest up and let my ankle heal and get rid of this cold. Ankle is all better, and the cold isn't as bad right now. I'm sure that once it's... Read more
January week 3
This week started off great, but on Wednesday my head cold that I had over Christmas returned, and I haven't been getting any exercise in since then. This cold isn't too bad (mostly severe congestion and a little bit of a cough) but it's leavin... Read more
