I weigh WHAT??!
Wednesday, January 07, 2015      3 comments

I mean, we all know the holidays are dangerous. I usually gain a few pounds from Thanksgiving to Christmas. I weighed in at Weight Watchers on November 2 at 203 pounds. Still about 20 pounds of baby weight left to get off. I decided to try ... Read more

Hello, Sparkers! Here I am again after another LONG absence. Shortly after I posted my very last blog entry, my husband and I started trying for our first child. Fast forward three and a half years and we are now parents to two beautiful boys. E... Read more

Alternate title "Once a Fat Girl, Always a Fat Girl?" Something amazing happened to me this week. I stepped on the scale on Tuesday morning. And I saw a 1. And then a 7. A big, ear-splitting grin covered my face as I made an... Read more

Hey Sparkers. I'm still here! And, best of all, still going strong! I apologize for my long absence from the site. The week of Valentine's Day I got some rather upsetting news (I don't care to share at this point) and it has kind of ti... Read more
Valentine's Day's Revenge
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      2 comments

I have to admit, I do love Valentine's Day. I love the excuse to be a little bit pampered and to proclaim my love for WHN (what's his name). This year, since the day fell on a Monday (which is the lamest day of the week EVAR to celebrate),... Read more

It's Friday evening and I'm alone, WHN is off on a ski trip with his buddies. I browse through the relatively healthy options in the fridge, and then my eye falls on the one indulgence I purchased for my long and lonely weekend...a bag of Dorito... Read more

SO. Last Saturday was a B-E-A-utiful day here in OK! It also happened to be my "long run" day of the week. My previous long runs had been 2.9 miles, 3.5 miles, and 4.3 miles, so I decided to go for 5 miles. "The route I ran last week w... Read more
A good week and a BAD week, but I'm still here!

So. Despite waking up with a lot of energy and a positive attitude on Monday, things went downhill pretty quickly. I'm not going to bore you with the trivialities of why Monday and Tuesday sucked, but I will say that work was incredibly fru... Read more

Had a kind of confusing morning. My job has a weather hotline that we can call to see if we're supposed to come in during bad weather (snow and ice here in OK today). When my alarm went off I called the hotline and there were no messages, so I g... Read more

So yesterday, even though it was pretty chilly outside, I challenged myself to go run the hills around my workplace. The loop I run goes down a huge hill at a fairly steep incline, then up another huge hill with a more gradual incline, then back... Read more

Just finished my long run for the week and was super excited that I went 4 miles and could have even gone farther. Now I'm refueling with a banana and some chocolate milk and ready for a fun weekend. Tonight we're going to the Philharmonic con... Read more
One month of eating out = $$$!
Friday, January 14, 2011      3 comments

So, I was going over my bank statement this morning, reflecting on what I spend my $$ on, and guess what? I spend a LOT of cash on eating out! That has changed for this month, but looking over December's statements, I spent a total of $240.... Read more

YO. Well, I got in a good slow(ish) jog on my lunch break after spending 2 hours outside in the FREEZING cold for work. Even though I was bundled up as much as possible, my fingers were burning and my toes numb by the time I reached the wa... Read more

SO. Dragged my tired butt out of bed this morning to go on an outside run before the nasty winter weather arrives tomorrow. I've never really run in cold weather before (it was around 40 degrees_ but I put on some lightweight fleece and an ... Read more
