I just wanted to announce officially to everyone that I'm pregnant! I just had my first ultrasound scan today and my due date is 7th March 2011! Anyway, that's why I've been so absent from SP for so long. I am just getting back my motivation and... Read more

I decided to take the plunge and try on a pair of trousers I bought a few years ago for country walking and lo and behold they fit - perfectly! I honestly never thought I'd wear them again and would end up getting rid of them, but I held out hop... Read more
Blog Prompt: Do images of celebrities and models make you feel bad about yourself?
Wednesday, May 20, 2009 1 comments
I think in the past I would've said yes, definitely, but the more I learn about all that goes into making celebrities and models look the way they do for photo shoots I honestly don't envy them much. Sure I'd love to have a personal chef who coo... Read more

Week after week I step onto the scale, sometimes midweek for a special weigh-in once a month for a challenge I'm doing, but I'm discouraged to see my weight fluctuating like crazy! At first my panic was because I didn't realize that when you sta... Read more

So I've been stressing lately about having a steady weight gain each weekly weigh-in and I was getting very frustrated. I know all about how you can start to gain weight because of muscle development, but it still frustrated me that I was gainin... Read more

My Biggest Healthy Eating Accomplishment
Tuesday, March 10, 2009 0 comments
I think my biggest accomplishment is definitely that I voluntarily choose better choices for snacks, like carrot sticks, grapes or an apple rather than something that is small, but higher in calories so less filling and less satisfying in the lo... Read more
Always make sure to have a good scale!
Saturday, February 28, 2009 1 comments
So, I was given a large blow this morning when I picked up the new electronic scale I ordered. I stepped on it thinking I would be relatively the same weight as I've been holding steady at for the past few months, but to my great dismay (as well... Read more
