My Budget Treadmill -- Good Enough!
Sunday, October 09, 2011      4 comments

[This was a thread post, but it should have been a blog post. This is such a big deal to me. I'm also copying it into my blog to remind me to think about this and share what I learn next year.] Thank you all. I made my decision. I had these... Read more
One Little Lovely Task at a Time
Saturday, May 21, 2011      2 comments

Gardening--such an overwhelming project when you haven't tended it, and there are so many weeds and tall plants. But just starting and doing for a certain period of time is not a waste. That part's done. Do more another time. Small bits at ... Read more
Embracing My Small but Important Life
Thursday, May 19, 2011      3 comments

This was a "My story in 6 words" challenge in one of my SparkTeams. I've been thinking on this idea from time to time, and realized as I cuddled my daughter while watching SuperSize Me on Sunday night, that a LOT of my stress comes from the over... Read more
Dread of the Endless Frozen Void

I've ended a romance that wasn't bound anywhere special, and I'll take my chances with the unknown. But I'm dreading it. I went for a run the day he cancelled a date because he was feeling "sulky" and "stressed out" that he'd just realized he ... Read more

The Target Weight -- What is really means, and shouldn't mean
Friday, January 01, 2010      3 comments

My previous blog entry was a confession that I wasn't sure I had an intelligent "goal". I've come to the conclusion that the weight measuring is good, because I really can see the weight go UP after a week of no exercise and eating just to ... Read more
Tricking myself into being more lean
Monday, November 30, 2009      2 comments

I look at my weight ticker and think about that end goal of 112 pounds. I feel as if that could be way too light. It's hard to say, because that was my weight throughout my twenties and 30's, until the baby and fulltime work together removed m... Read more
First 5 mile run in VFFs
Monday, November 09, 2009      0 comments

I am plagued this week with VERY tight calves. I think it is a combo of running in VFFs and also doing strength exercises around the calves, and not sufficiently stretching, as well. I also did have a deep tissue massage on the calves last wee... Read more
First Race in 15 years!

I ran a 5K on Halloween Night and thoroughly enjoyed it! My sweetie and I had dinner (fish and chips for me, and a big beer) at 6:30, and then hoped for the best at 8PM. Not having to compete as I did when I was a youngster in the Army, it was ... Read more
First VFF run

Walking my daughter to daycare 3x/week is turning out to be a lovely success. She and I both really enjoy that time together, and she confirmed that she felt refreshed at school after the walk. I read that this is the case--kids walking to schoo... Read more
Vibrams - I love these silly little things!
Sunday, October 25, 2009      1 comments

I just finished filling out the answers to some questions for The Daily Spark, where I enthused about my Vibram Five Fingers Sprints. I had a rough week last week in regular shoes, where I was limping home from work. My running shoes didn't hel... Read more

I've struggled with the fact that if I set aside that hour to do exercise, my little one remains at daycare. Being a single mother, having her with me while I got more heavy duty exercise was not possible. I love to run. A walk with her does not... Read more
Lowering Standards
Monday, December 08, 2008      2 comments

My whole life, I've been my chief tormentor. Always thinking "There's more you should be doing, more you should be getting done...you need to to a better job." If it had resulted in great achievement and good works for mankind, that would... Read more
Design for Change
Wednesday, March 14, 2007      0 comments

It is true that I know the things I want to change, but I haven't committed to specific details. I MUST do that!!! Of course, I have a hard time focusing on which things must happen. I live life rather reactively and want to change that.... Read more
Listening better

All I can say is this is my most important and most difficult new year's resolution. I hope and pray there is obvious improvement between now and Dec. 31st 2007.... Read more
