Walking Hector
Sunday, August 17, 2014      2 comments

Hector and I walked for about a mile today. We left Gunner at home to get some rest, while we used up some of Hector's energy. We got Hector because Gunner had so much energy, he needed someone to play with. Now, Gunner's worn out all the tim... Read more

I just completed a 21-minute in-home walking mile with Leslie Sansone, making today the eighth day of my SparkStreak. My goal was seven days of doing 10 or more minutes of concentrated fitness effort. Some days were more accomplished than othe... Read more

Dear Mr. SparkGuy: I just wanted to let you know that not only did I take you up on the 10-minute challenge and set myself a goal of a seven-day SparkStreak, but I was SUCCESSFUL! Most days, I did more than 10 minutes. Every day though, I... Read more
Tempted but successful

Today is day six of my seven day streak challenge. Morning came oh-so-early. Ten minutes of anything other than more shut eye never crossed my mind. I was in training all day and so never had a chance to get my 10 minutes in during the day. ... Read more
And the streak continues

Oh my gosh, Tuesday night I was sooooo tired. I really did not want to do my workout. I had skipped it in the morning because I was tired in the morning. Funny how I wasn't any less tired after being up all day. ... Read more
Starting early

Rather than waiting until the end of day three to make sure I met my 10-minute commitment, I did it first thing this morning. I weighed in on my Wii Fit, so it seemed appropriate to use it for some exercise too. I did a Wii Fit Routine, which ... Read more

I nearly forgot my goal of a seven-day 10-minute workout streak. I wanted to be in bed half hour ago and had just eaten, so I knew my 10 minutes would have to be light. I grudgingly stepped onto my Wii Fit and earned seven minutes through bala... Read more

Eliminating toxins
Sunday, June 29, 2014      5 comments

Our visiting pastor this morning said, "In our lives, a noun without a verb is toxic to our souls," like money not invested or people not loved. In other words, things we do not use or enjoy, things that clutter our lives, are better gone than ... Read more
Sitting for an hour
Saturday, June 21, 2014      4 comments

I have been sitting here working at my computer for an hour. It amazes me how quickly time goes by behind a screen. Being more cognizant of the clock while behind a screen may help me get up a little more often to move my body occasionally thr... Read more
Seven-year plan
Tuesday, June 03, 2014      4 comments

I began to develop my seven-year health plan May 28, 2014. I have heard it said that the body completely regenerates itself in seven years. I figured I should do my part to make that body better than the one I have today. The plan will begin ... Read more
Wellness Champion
Tuesday, May 06, 2014      2 comments

I have been named a "Wellness Champion" at work. This is not an award for wellness or anything, but a role designed to encourage staff to take steps to improve their wellness. I ate a whole can of Pringles tonight because I was frustrated ... Read more

I am reading a book ("In the Land of Invisible Women: A Female Doctor's Journey in the Saudi Kingdom" by Qanta Ahmed) that has had a profound effect on me. There are several parts of the book that have made a significant impression on me, but t... Read more
Early to bed, early to rise
Tuesday, March 18, 2014      2 comments

I have always been a night owl. Even if I am incredibly tired, as the night wears on, I wake up. If I have had a good night's sleep and wake early, I am lost and confused. "It is 4:00 a.m. What do I do at 4:00 a.m.?" Lately, though, I h... Read more
Overcoming overeating
Monday, March 10, 2014      7 comments

"Oh, why did I eat so much?" I have asked myself too often. "I feel miserable!" There are many reasons why I overeat. One of the biggest motivators for me to stuff myself is a fear that I will be hungry again too soon. So I eat and eat a... Read more
