Looking ahead to my new year
Friday, January 17, 2014      21 comments

My New Year is fast approaching. I was thinking of making 2014: My Year of Sanity. Mind you, I’m not clinically insane, it’s just that I sometimes I step back and find I can’t make sense out of what I’m doing. I consider myself at goal f... Read more
Good-bye 2013
Wednesday, January 01, 2014      21 comments

Just out of curiosity, I checked a SparkReport to see where my weight was at this time last year. I was about 5 pounds heavier than I am today. I'm currently about 5 pounds heavier than my lowest point for the year. I'm at a healthy weight and ... Read more

I feel bad. The neighbor's dog attacked again. No serious injuries, but this is a very serious situation. There can't be a good resolution when people just won't be reasonable. My best hope is they'll move the dog to another home and I'll p... Read more

Lola is feeling better. She's wagging her tail! I initially wrote a long blog about the horror of it all. Thank goodness for the delete key! No gory details here. Ju... Read more

Sunday, June 02, 2013      23 comments

I track my steps in several different places in addition to SparkPeople. On one of these other sites, someone suggested a One Million Steps of Summer Challenge. My first thought: That's INSANE! Then I did the math. Summer is ... Read more
Am I doing this thing backwards?
Tuesday, April 09, 2013      25 comments

This morning I came upon a Spark Poll question that I've seen before: Would you exercise if you didn't have to? Huh? I lost weight so I could run -- not the other way around. I WANT to be fit and active. I WANT to run. If I coul... Read more
Reward or Reality Check
Wednesday, January 16, 2013      20 comments

Some of my SparkFriends were talking about rewards and that got me to thinking.... I don't reward myself very often. I started taking my inventory to see if I actually deserve a reward: I'm not perfect, but I'm pretty darn consistent... Read more

Getting back on Track goals
Tuesday, January 01, 2013      12 comments

I've had a good vacation. My weight hasn't changed. My eating hasn't been great -- I've definitely had more chocolate and fewer vegetables than I should. I've taken it very easy with fitness, too. I've stuck with walking, sometimes a lot of walk... Read more

This was a healthy year for me. I'm at a good weight and I'm fitter than I've been in years. This is a good time to look back and see what worked to bring me to this point. Running: This is certainly my biggest success. At this time last ... Read more

Lotto Fever
Friday, March 30, 2012      9 comments

It's an epidemic in my office. The prize is like $640,000,000 -- more than half a billion! I can't count the number of times I've heard the phrase, "somebody has to win this week." Ahem, no one HAS to win tonight. No one has won it in weeks, h... Read more

There's a little more than a quarter of this year remaining. I'm back from my vacation and it's time to get focused. The days will soon be getting shorter and I need to have some structure and direction before I find myself completely off trac... Read more
