Too much protein
Thursday, June 10, 2010      4 comments

The week is almost over. I head home tomorrow morning. Hooray! I'm ready to sleep in my own bed and cook my own meals. The good thing today - I got up and walked before starting work. No inner fight to decide what I knew I needed to do. ... Read more

I had a delightful 3 hours with my youngest sister this evening. She currently lives in KS - I'm in WI. But my weekly travels have brought me to MO ... and she made a 4 hour drive to pick me up for dinner! We enjoyed some Thai food and then a ni... Read more
I did walk!
Monday, June 07, 2010      3 comments

I did it. I moved from thinking about walking (after dinner) to changing into workout clothes, finding the fitness center, and actually doing it. Hooray!!! I always feel so much better after the walk, why do I struggle so much making the de... Read more
Sunday afternoon

I took a nap! Stretched out on the couch, under the afghan. Dooley settled in on top of me (after tickling my nose with his whiskers and patting my cheek with his paw). And then I was out like a light. Good thing I set the timer so was only down... Read more

Home again ... Dooley is so happy! He's been purring and rubbing and climbing on me. Yesterday I did another 15 minutes on the elliptical - not quite so difficult as Wednesday, but I'm looking forward to my walk on the treadmill this evenin... Read more
Something new

Ok, so I didn't walk last night. I got to the exercise room and there was a sign posted that the treadmill is out of order. That was enough to send me back up to my room and to bed. But this morning I got up and tried something new! There i... Read more
On the road again?

I got home on Sunday afternoon, worked outside all day Monday, and here I am in a different city again today. The life of a working woman! I'm planning to walk this week before I go to work. I brought work-out clothes and wore my walking ... Read more
Home from Nicaragua

I'm back! I had an awesome time in Nicaragua. I traveled with Compassion International and learned so much about the organization - I really appreciate how they minister to children through local churches and how they stand with integrity,... Read more
Vacation time

Today has been rather busy and distracted. I started out with an early morning dental appointment - my 6-month checkup. The dentist said I have "good teeth." That's terrific. Then quick to WalMart for a couple of things I forgot last night ... Read more
So far, so good ...

This week on the road is going so much better than last week. Yesterday I had room in my meal plan for Chili's Garlic & Herb Grilled Salmon dinner. And then I needed just enough carbs to enjoy an apple when I arrived at my hotel. What a thrill t... Read more
Senior meal at IHOP

Back to work. I flew out this afternoon after church and now am at my first destination for the week. There's an IHOP next door to the hotel - convenient for supper. A nice waitress said that I could order off the "senior" menu, and she wouldn't... Read more
A time to mow
Friday, May 14, 2010      5 comments

It's May and I've been gone most of the past two weeks. That means my lawn needs attention. I just spent 90 minutes riding my mower around the back yard. So much fun!!! I heard that tomorrow is supposed to be nice, so I'll mow the front yard to... Read more
Walking to work (at home)
Thursday, May 13, 2010      2 comments

I'm home from my travel for the week. It's always good to come home, and Dooley is thrilled to have me back again. I walked into my office and found his toy mouse (catnip filled) on the floor behind my chair. Was that a gift? Or was he just play... Read more

I am learning. That's the good thing. I need to stay focused on the learnings that are taking place! Yesterday I flew to the west coast for a couple days of work. I did some things right. I bought a bottle of water in the airport and drank... Read more
A learning experience

I left this morning on my first business trip since joining SparkPeople. I have struggled to eat sensibly for the past 4 1/2 years while working this job. So what is going to change? I'm glad this tool is on-line and I can access it from ju... Read more
