  • Late blog

    2/11/2016 9:21:02 PM, by ADF1981

    I had to do a lot today so I didn't have time to blog. After all the rushing around trying to get stuff done, I decided I'd sit down and unwind before I finish cleaning up the kitchen. Everything has been on track and I felt much better today. I forgot that I needed to cook my sweet potatoes ... Read more

  • Food changes

    2/10/2016 5:22:35 PM, by ADF1981

    Last night, I felt so bloated and miserable after supper that I decided it was time to change some of the foods that I've been eating. I've read that others experience this from eating high fiber diets with lots of veggies. Some nights lately it's been worse and I've also been having more spasms a... Read more

    Today has been on track so far. We walked this morning. It was funny to see little snow flakes wiz by once in a while (deep south + snow = freak show). I cooked a few things while I ate my second breakfast or snack, whatever you want to call it, before heading to the gym. Today's workout was sho... Read more

    2/8/2016 2:11:31 PM, by ADF1981

    We had a really busy but fun weekend. I didn't get on spark much other than to track my food from the app on my phone. Since lunch I've been relaxing and trying to catch up on blogs. Overall the weekend was on track. It was my son's birthday on Saturday so I did have a treat meal that evening. ... Read more

  • Groundhog Day? (...or my UPDATE/Before PICTURES don't look as awesome as I thought they would)

    2/8/2016 3:51:53 AM, by _RAMONA

    Before I post pictures, I have a confession to make. So, this past year I haven't been a really active SPARKling. I was tired and grumpy. I had been working at this steadily for eight very long years, and I still had a very long way to go. It was discouraging. ...And, for th... Read more

  • Week 5: Progress!

    2/6/2016 8:28:31 AM, by MODDEDCOROLLA

    Five weeks into 2016, and I'm doing great. I weighed in at the start of the year at 201.9lbs. I weighed in today, at a weight of 190.3lbs. That's an 11.6lbs loss so far this year, and an average weight loss of 2.3lbs a week! I track my weight on an iPhone app called "WeightRec... Read more

  • Almost Friday

    2/4/2016 2:49:12 PM, by ADF1981

    Yesterday was on track. I did my ab workout at home, but skipped HIIT because I am going to try a little different routine with that. Since I'm working on increasing my time spent on HIIT, I need to do it less frequently. My goal is HIIT 3 times a week so I will do it on my leg days and on Saturd... Read more

    2/2/2016 2:01:35 PM, by ADF1981

    Today's workout was awesome. My arms feel like jello so I'd count that as a successful workout! Last few arm workouts have been boring and just wasn't feeling it anymore. Can't say that about today which makes me happy! I'm sure I will be feeling it tomorrow. The workout was shoulders and trice... Read more

    2/1/2016 8:11:57 PM, by ADF1981

    Monday has me tired! It's funny how an afternoon appointment can make your whole day feel like it's centered around that. Just having to get everything done in less time I guess had me a little wound up. I feel like I could just lay down and unravel, but my youngest still needs a shower and so do... Read more

  • Upset.(Insert Pity Party)

    1/29/2016 8:17:29 AM, by SWEETNSKINNY

    Hey spark friends. Well, this week I was really great. I actually hit a 10 lb loss in less than a month. I cant believe I did that. I've never done that (at least not where i can remember). I have been 100% on my meal plan down to measuring and weighing every single meal. I have worked out 5 d... Read more

    So I haven't really lost any weight since I've started my journey to re-lose 30-ish pounds, but this week I HAVE started back to regularly working out in the mornings. I've made the decision that my workout time, which is limited, is best spent focusing on lifting weights. A brisk walk with ... Read more

  • Learning from My Mistakes

    1/26/2016 8:14:37 AM, by ANNEMARGAR

    Tracking my food - every single item I put in my mouth truly is a pain in the butt, "butt" I do learn from it. Two days ago I was just enjoying 1/2 of the Toll House cookie and yesterday I did not eat a single one as I could not afford the calories. Last night we ate leftover pizza for dinner (as ...

  • What Happened to My Clean Eating Routine??

    1/25/2016 8:45:45 AM, by ANNEMARGAR

    I'll tell you what happened - the blasted snowstorm came into town and for whatever reason, I thought that meant I could enjoy "comfort" food. Friday I made toll house cookies for my family - though of course I had to nibble here and there to make sure they tasted okay. I did not realize that Toll... Read more

    Still pluggin away! I had a gain last week that put me back in the 160's. It messed with my head. I have been BUSTING my butt and to have any gain esp one that put me back in the 160s was rough.

    "Throughout years and years, slow and steady wins the race. Is greatness winning? Is it losing? Is it recovery? It's all of them, plus being good to yourself. I don't have regrets. I don't live in the past. I live in the present and learn not to make the same mistakes in the future." Serena Willi... Read more

    Thought I'd give a quick update on my progress and journey thus far: When my daughter and grandson were here I didn't do so hot with my eating. But I DID manage to start exercising again. I came to the reality that if my eating wasn't going to be on point, I could at least add some acti... Read more

I really wish we had more time. I thought about my health and the poor choices I had made.... Read more
