Getting to know me, one word at a time
Wednesday, January 02, 2013      5 comments

ONEKIDSMOM and OVERWORKEDJANET did this yesterday. I like these things and decided to post for myself today. I'll post a real blog next. I guess the rule is, one word answers: Where is your cell phone? bed Spouse? love Your hair? ... Read more
Already met my new goals
Tuesday, January 01, 2013      9 comments

I went out for a short time last night with The Hubster. He wanted to get a beer and some dinner at our local pub, so I went. Supper didn't sit well in my stomach and I was tired after an hour. But it felt good to be out in the cold, fresh air f... Read more
Food Bully
Monday, December 31, 2012      11 comments

Today is going to be a day where I spend most of it out of bed, rather than in bed. Progress! I even made muffins this morning. (It's a spark recipe. I've made it before and forgot that I didn't like it. The Hubster likes it, though, so he's hap... Read more
What do I have to do to meet my goals
Sunday, December 30, 2012      9 comments

Still stuck in bed. Fever broke yesterday in the early afternoon, but came back in the evening. Broke again last night and I woke up thinking I was doing pretty good. Then I took a shower and realized that maybe I wasn't ready for prime time yet... Read more
When I get sick, I get sick
Saturday, December 29, 2012      10 comments

This is how illness works in my household. I get a tickle in the back of my throat and The Hubster ends up with a raging cold. My tummy feels a little queasy for a few minutes and The Hubster has the runs for days. It's just how it goes. But whe... Read more
To fight for each minute is to fight for what's possible

I have a song that is sort of my motto. I've mentioned it before. It's by Damion Suomi and The Minor Prophets. They have a sound kind of like Mumford and Sons. This song has gotten me through some really hard work outs, even harder emotional cha... Read more
Toying with some new goals
Sunday, December 23, 2012      6 comments

I didn't realize how long I was away - 10 days! I got a few runs in. A couple of trips to the Y, but I'm still not in a routine. I have been reading your blogs and a few sparkfriends have returned after being away for weeks or months. It's helpf... Read more
Grown Up Peanut Butter Cookies and the bonus Macaroon recipe.
Thursday, December 13, 2012      6 comments

Your wish is my command, CODEMAULER. I take no responsibility for anyone going over their calories for the day with these cookies. I'll do the macaroon recipe first. There are two ingredients: sweetened condensed milk and sweetened sh... Read more
No More Cookie Baking!
Thursday, December 13, 2012      6 comments

Somehow, I became the designated cookie baker. I have a dozen chocolate chip cookies and 4 dozen snickerdoodles in the freezer. I have already baked and given away 10 dozen cookies - a big basket for an auction and 2 dozen for my mechanic. ... Read more
Measuring Health
Tuesday, December 11, 2012      9 comments

My co-workers have been convinced for several years that my mechanic and I are having an affair. I can sort of understand it as he is very, very nice to me. If he needs to keep my car overnight or my schedule won't allow for me to get back befor... Read more
I Found My Mojo
Monday, December 10, 2012      8 comments

I found my mojo and it's not happy. The Hubster has been telling me that for every week off, I lose 2 weeks of training. I thought that was extreme and from my not-too-exhaustive search on the interwebs, it seems I have indeed buried my mojo in ... Read more
Public Announcements
Thursday, December 06, 2012      7 comments

I signed up for the 10 minutes/day exercise challenge. I haven't done 10 minutes every day. My work schedule can be brutal and I'm NOT going to feel guilty about it. It just is. But signing up for the challenge has gotten me out to the gym or ru... Read more
Hinkies, Thigh Fat
Monday, December 03, 2012      11 comments

It's late for me and I was just complaining about not sleeping well, but I wanted to check in real quick. The Hubster and I went to the Y tonight. I really hate the treadmill but ran on it for 40 minutes. I did another 10 on the bike and th... Read more
Staying Asleep
Sunday, December 02, 2012      9 comments

OK. In my attempt to get my mojo back, I resolved to look closely at where and why I was backsliding. Regular exercise. I wanted to exercise at least 10 minutes each day this week. I managed to squeak in a few little somethings that I can ... Read more
