It sure doesn't seem like I'm getting much accomplished around the house as we get ready for our appraisal. I'm hoping that I can get a lot done Saturday, Sunday and Monday because today wasn't very productive. I DID concentrate on what we... Read more

I think I've recovered from our vacation. I've gotten some good sleep the last couple of days. I went out for a 6.5 mile run today for my half marathon training and didn't quite time it right so I ended up walking nearly an extra mile and a ha... Read more

I kept up my exercise streak while we were gone on our mini vacation. I got out for a walk on Saturday morning before leaving town. Sunday morning I didn't sleep so well so I went out for a run as the sun was coming up. It was pretty hot and ... Read more

What I missed, actually, was blogging about my big day! What, you way, was that? My day 1000 of my exercise streak! Yeah - it was this past Wednesday and I totally missed making a big deal about it. I had to work that night and I... Read more
Getting ready to head out for our mini vacation
Saturday, July 26, 2014      6 comments

Just getting things organized to head out of town. I woke up early and couldn't get back to sleep, which is good, because it gave me the time to cut up a head of cauliflower and a couple more heads of broccoli. I also have a big bag of baby ca... Read more
What ARE your goals? What will meeting that goal DO for you?
Tuesday, July 22, 2014      10 comments

Deep question but an important one that we need to consider whenever we are trying to change a lifestyle. Initially I wanted to lose "X" amount of weight. Simple idea, right? Not so simple to actually accomplish (but that's a totally SEPARAT... Read more

Today was day 991 of my 10 minute daily exercise streak. I was hoping that I'd be able to make it to day 1000 and I really can't see anything coming up that would change that (knock on wood!!) . . . but if it does, I guess I have a great str... Read more

3 pounds down in a month! I hate to jinx myself but I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe, I've broken through my plateau! Oh, Happy Day! I don't even know off the top of my head how long I'd been stuck at the same weight or even increasing lit... Read more

Things are crazy for me. I am trying to get on the computer and check in with Spark friends at least once a week with a blog but it's pretty hard. My Health Coaching classes take up quite a bit of time. It's 2-3 hours per week on the computer... Read more

Saturday, June 21, 2014      8 comments

Tonight I tried to get some sleep since I have to work overnight and I kept hearing thunder rumbling in my sleep limbo state. I can't say that I really got any sleep but at least I rested for a few hours in the afternoon and a few more in the e... Read more
