I had a date with the Hubster last night, so no sparking for me yesterday. I have to work all day today, so today is the designated rest day. I'll probably check in tonight, Sparklers. In the meantime, you may have seen this making the rounds on... Read more
"Swim," said the Mamma. "We swim," said the two.

I went swimming today and I killed it. Hopped in the pool at 8:05, started swimming slow and steady. Got out at 8:40. I didn't count laps. I just swam. I thought about swimming in the ocean. I thought about swimming in the Potomac. (ONEKIDSMOM i... Read more
An unexamined life is not worth living. -Socrates
Wednesday, January 29, 2014      10 comments

This is a comment that I wrote on ONEKIDSMOM's blog on January 27: Olympic distance - you rock! I have no doubts that I can do the bike and the run. The swim scares me. It is a fear for me to conquer. ... I asked myself the question "What a... Read more
Bless me Sparkers for I have sinned...

I was going to start out with confession, but in order to get absolution, I have to repent and ask forgiveness. But I am not repentant. This isn't even going to be like a 12 Step program where I acknowledge that I am powerless against my addicti... Read more
Work Outs are Therapeutic
Monday, January 27, 2014      13 comments

No exaggeration. No hyperbole. Just the facts, ma'am. I was running a little late to get to the Y on time, but if the traffic gods were with me, I'd be close to on time. I was at the door of my office with my coat on when my right hand man ... Read more
Re-Defining Beauty

A day late and a dollar short, but the joke is still funny. Here's a shout out to the guy checking himself out at the Y yesterday: youtu.be/wyx6JDQCslE Girl look at that body (Ahhh) Girl look at tha... Read more
Made My Fitness and Nutrition Goals again (Yeah!)
Saturday, January 25, 2014      13 comments

It was a full and long day. I actually had to write down my schedule and "back into" when I could exercise, I had so much going on. I also had to figure out my food, since once I left the house, I wasn't going to be back until supper time. ... Read more

Yesterday was my rest day because I had to go in to town for a meeting after work. It was a long day that started with my leaving the house around 7:15 AM and getting home around 9:15 PM. Today I was dragging. I was so happy that I ha... Read more
Who Needs Lenny When I'm Around?
Wednesday, January 22, 2014      10 comments

Oh. My. Goodness. I've told you that this is the first week of the 50 Shades of Sore class. Since there are new people at each class, Lenny has to do the baseline assessment and that takes time. He needed to give the new folks a lot of att... Read more
And The Streak Goes On
Tuesday, January 21, 2014      10 comments

It was a close call, Sparkeroonies. I almost tricked myself into not keeping the streak going. The Northeast snowstorm blew in to the city where I work around 4:00-ish. Nothing too serious. Just some snow. By the time I left for home, it was aft... Read more
It's Your Lucky Day, Sparkers: Spark Story, Food Pix and a Recipe
Monday, January 20, 2014      12 comments

I'm doing the Happy, Happy Food Dance. I came up with a new to me recipe. I doubt it's original, but I'm just so happy with it that I'm sharing it with you. I love pesto, but I'm limited because I'm allergic to pine nuts, so I always make m... Read more

The streak continues. Sheer will power today, Sparkinators, sheer will power. First off, a very late, but nonetheless heartfelt thank you to everyone who has sent me notes wishing me a happy birthday and also encouragement on my recently fo... Read more
Thinking and Acting Like A Fit Person
Saturday, January 18, 2014      16 comments

Hey Sparkolators! How are you? My other personalities (Warrior Woman and Bad A$$ DogLady) and I may have turned a corner. Doing 50 Shades of Sore, 3 days per week with Lenny is much different than 2 days per week. Coupled with that, I am pu... Read more

Friday, January 17, 2014      11 comments

Quick blog before I head out to work. Got through an unexpected birthday cake ambush yesterday. I was going to see a group of friends and the hostess always puts out a boatload of cookies and cakes. I called her in advance to let her know t... Read more
2 Sets of 12 Burpees
Wednesday, January 15, 2014      8 comments

I knew I was doomed when I walked in to the Y and Lenny was hanging out, talking to the woman who is Lenny's counterpart in developing new ways to torture people. I can't remember her name right now. I've blocked it. One of those "she who shall ... Read more
