SP Premium



Good 24 hours.
Wednesday, January 16, 2013      2 comments

Dear Sparkies, I'm very pleased that I've lost 8 pounds so far, this time around. Looking at the big picture, though, I'm still heavier than I was the first time I started SP, so I have a lot of work to do. At least I know how to go about... Read more
I don't DO free-form dance
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      1 comments

This morning I got up, looked at the ice on the roads, and decided to forego the gym. I decided to do a workout video at home instead. I don't have cable TV, I have a Roku box instead, with an internet connection. (I have an allergy to commer... Read more
Monday morning blahs

Got up in the snow and did the treadmill thing for half an hour. Lackluster workout. Heart rate was really high, really early, and I couldn't get it lower without slowing to a crawl. I don't know what I did differently, except that yesterday'... Read more
Weight has plateaued but fitness hasn't!
Thursday, January 10, 2013      1 comments

After the first five pounds just *fell* off, the scale is pretty static these last few days. I am going to try to get better quality sleep this weekend and see if that helps anything. I've also determined that having even anything as much as o... Read more
Holy DOMS, Batman!
Wednesday, January 09, 2013      3 comments

(DOMS = Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, in case you weren't familiar with that term. I think everyone is familiar with the feeling, though!) I also belong to a website called Fitocracy. I have been on it for a while now. It has a point sy... Read more
Walking in the snow
Monday, January 07, 2013      2 comments

Hello Sparkies, A ton of snow has dumped on Spokane, and I have no snow tires. (Mine are 11 years old and Les Schwab won't put them on for me for safety reasons. Boo.) So I walked to work. It's 1.3 miles on the flat, and isn't terrible,... Read more
Quit waiting for circumstances to be ideal
Thursday, January 03, 2013      2 comments

So in the last year, things have changed. I got a new part time job, I bought a house, I've made some major changes in my life. All of these things are good things, for the most part, but I've been waiting over and over again for circumstances... Read more
Dear Sparkpeople, I've been cheating on you...

Hi friends, I have a new favorite website. It's called Fitocracy. It's another fitness tracker, only with quests and achievements and points for activities. It's fun! But it's another website to spend time on, and I've been neglecting S... Read more
New goals
Sunday, July 24, 2011      3 comments

I've been trying this for a while. Actually, when I try, it works, and when I don't try, I lapse into my old bad habits and make no progress. So why do I quit trying? So stupid. I need to make new goals. Right now, my goal is to make ti... Read more
The numbers on the scale go up, up, up...
Friday, February 04, 2011      3 comments

Hello Sparklies, I'm feeling a little twinge at the moment, because I'm gaining weight, even after being careful. I know I shouldn't panic, because it's muscle (and I know this, because I can feel them!). Every time I start working out th... Read more
Finding solutions
Wednesday, February 02, 2011      1 comments

Hello Sparklies, I have had some stress in the past few days, and I really ripped into someone who deserved it. I don't know if I have any resolution or closure in the matter, but at least I'm assured that this person has discovered that t... Read more
Glad this month is nearly over
Sunday, January 30, 2011      3 comments

Hello Sparklies, If nothing else, this month I managed to log in every day. That's a step in the right direction, right? This past week, I logged no food besides today. Lifted no weights. Ugh. I did give myself two weeks off of the... Read more
Reset time
Tuesday, January 18, 2011      2 comments

Decided to tune up my goals. I am trying to lose weight in stages, and rather than try to do 20 pounds at a time, I decided to lose 10% of my weight. So my first stage will be 26 pounds, my next stage will be (rounded up to) 24, etc. So n... Read more
Big week of work coming up
Monday, January 17, 2011      3 comments

Hello Sparklies, I was lured back into temptation with a 10 day trial of Cataclysm, so I got my geek on tonight and ran around and hit things. I've been an on again, off again WoW player since 2005, but I've never been serious about it, it... Read more
Sick as a dog...
Thursday, January 13, 2011      4 comments

Why are dogs sick? That was the question I always had for that particular saying. I have had a fierce cold since Friday. It started out rather benign, but it's turned into a full-on cough fest. One of the things that worries me a li... Read more
