I've made the decision to officially cut ties with Sparkpeople. I'll be unsubscribing from emails and all after this post. I'll keep the page alive because I don't want to lose my old blogs, but I may never come back and post again. If you ... Read more

Whew. I took a couple months away from Spark. Can't say I super missed it, but I'm not ready to shut it down yet just in case. I have been tracking my food and steps with the LoseIt! app. I think I'd get more out of it if I paid the money for it... Read more

Hello! Small update and some Spark thoughts... I finally saw the gastro doc last week. She said the same thing my primary doc said - her first thought was that my symptoms sound very much like celiacs so we're going to test that again.... Read more

I was going to come on here ranting and raving about the Sparkpeople changes but I see they are already rolling back or fixing a few of them, so now my rage is subsiding. I will say this: you don't go flipping a rug on someone without a lit... Read more

Hello all! I was prepped for a not-so-good weigh in this morning but I was still bummed by a 2lb gain. I was SO GOOD most of last week. I did some great workouts. My tummy was kind of upset all week so I didn't even eat as much as I co... Read more

... but I could use some tips and advice! There is a reason one of those "work out every day for 30 days" challenges won't work for me. There is a reason why I'm afraid to sign up for things like those "challenges" or strict workout plans. ... Read more

I've got a lot of a funk happening right now. Everyone told me you'd get the blues after your wedding is over, and man... I feel it. We went on this amazing honeymoon, came back to daylight savings darkness and Donald Drumpf somehow winning an e... Read more
