  • Stock photos

    12/11/2017 9:52:33 PM, by DELL_BELLE

    I came across two stock photos yesterday that hit me like a ton of bricks. Both of them showed just a small part of a fit woman, but they had very different effects on me. One of them made me smile, motivated me, made me excited to lose weight and get in shape. The other made me frustrated and a lit... Read more

  • The last 7 days

    12/10/2017 3:29:27 PM, by DELL_BELLE

    Today marks my first full week on Spark. The first week that I've logged in every day and logged my food. And out of those 7 days, there were 5 of them where I hit my calorie targets for the day. Pretty good start, I'd say! Especially considering it's the holiday season and the two days I was over ... Read more

    Anybody listen to wben with Tom baurley and David ballevia? Well if you don't know Tom had a heart attack Friday. Yesterday they literally were talking about how it happened and since then I've had nothing but anxiety; about death, dying etc. I used to have these racing panic filled thoughts about t...

    12/5/2017 11:35:36 AM, by HSARMYWF

  • Going for a streak

    12/4/2017 8:20:30 PM, by DELL_BELLE

    I've decided that the best way to keep me focused and motivated is to blog every day. Just to keep myself in the Spark mindset, to keep me mindful of what my goals are and why I want them. The WHY of it, that's the most important part. Because there is a reason I set my goals in the first place, it'... Read more

    Holiday parties should be a good thing, right? As long as you're not the one throwing the party, they should be a time to unwind, get all dressed up and have a great stress-free night, right? For me, and I'm sure for a lot of you, they are all those things, but they're also a time full of insecuriti... Read more

  • Starting the month off right

    12/1/2017 1:49:03 PM, by DELL_BELLE

    It's December! That means 'tis the season for holiday treats. I went to the bulk food store the other day, and oh my goodness, there were holiday candies and chocolates galore! In a moment of weakness, I bought a lot. And when I got home, I ate a lot. I'm not proud of it, not in the slightest, an... Read more

  • I love Fridays!

    12/1/2017 11:56:30 AM, by BOOTYLICIOUS83

    Breakfast pic!! Every Friday is pancake day! Thank God it's only once a week. No idea the calories. But it's good. I've started eating oatmeal and cereal again. This week I've had oatmeal twice and cereal ( Kellogg's wheat bran flakes) once. I think as long as I add both to my breakfasts at work ... Read more

  • 2017 has been a horrible, terrible year

    11/30/2017 12:59:15 PM, by MRSSUZSTAR

    I had such high hopes for 2017! Things were finally going to be better after bad years in 2015 and 2016. No such luck! My sweet mom was diagnosed with a recurrence in her stomach cancer just before the end of 2016. We left her obnoxious oncologist and traveled to MD Anderson where she was given hope... Read more

  • December GOALS

    11/30/2017 9:46:20 AM, by DELL_BELLE

    I decided to set some goals on my Garmin Connect account, because those goals are measured by my Garmin GPS watch - there's no "faking it" or "short-changing" - either I hit the goal or I don't. And I'm a data-driven person, I love seeing the numbers that reflect my efforts, and I love using that da... Read more

    11/27/2017 11:52:53 PM, by BOOTYLICIOUS83

    Today was a very productive day. Since I clean at work everyday the last thing I want to do when I come home is clean so I procrastinate about cleaning at home. Vacuuming and other stuff is easy peasy but some things like cleaning the fridge and the bathroom I just put off.. oh I'll do it this weeke... Read more

  • For Heaven's Sake, Just Enjoy Thanksgiving!

    11/22/2017 9:45:52 AM, by IVANHOE64

    I see that there's plenty of advice available these days for people who will be spending Thanksgiving (and, later on, Christmas) with relatives whose political views are markedly different. I see this and I shake my head. Apparently, lots of people will be heading to Thanksgiving dinner in a defen... Read more

    I have made some positive changes in my diet, but also some lazy habits. Too much easy snack type food. Processed food. I have quit almost all artificial sweeteners and have lost my taste for them. Never drink soda. But a little more alcohol than I used to. Where do I go now? What do I... Read more
