Getting Restless
Thursday, March 27, 2014      10 comments

I'm getting restless. I want to exercise outside. I want to run outside. I want to go for long bike rides. The weather is almost cooperating. The storm passed us by yesterday and I'm grateful. Today the temperatures are warming up. The sun is ou... Read more
Post 90 Day Compliance Plan - maybe
Wednesday, March 26, 2014      12 comments

So the stress level over my side of work has leveled off. (Not sure SPERRIN2012 feels like the stress level for him is getting better, though. But he'll get through it. He's doing good.) I know it is getting better because the Chief Operating Of... Read more
Fruits of Being Mentally Tough
Tuesday, March 25, 2014      11 comments

I'm in the home stretch for the 90 day compliance, mental toughness thing. I haven't written much about it, but I've been consistently losing weight - averaging just under a pound a week. (I didn't lose any weight last week - maintained and ther... Read more
Full Steam Ahead!

I was miserable for most of the day. I woke up sore. Back, butt, hip and leg - all showing signs of pain. Soreness. Aches. Occasional lightning bolts. I stuck to my guns and got on Lady Di this morning. I pedaled for 10 minutes to warm up my mus... Read more
Back to the Routine

First things first. My beloved hockey team, the UMass Lowell River Hawks won the Hockey East division championship last night. My throat is still a little sore from all the screaming and hollering. I was in the cheap seats with my friends, fello... Read more
NYTimes: Running as Therapy
Friday, March 21, 2014      10 comments

nyti.ms/1gU9zWE Running as therapy. Ain't nothing like it. I could use some now. But it doesn't have to be running. For me I need something that is challenging, takes me away from the stressor, and requires my full attemtio... Read more

Quick Update, Doing the Happy Dance
Wednesday, March 19, 2014      11 comments

Another blog because I'm happy and I have time. I feel great. No troubles from the work out. I iced again when I made it to work. Then I walked to City Hall for a meeting. It's a little more than a 1/4 mile from my office and based on where... Read more
My Middle Name is Compliant

I'm blogging early today, Sparkaloos. It's the only way I'll sit long enough with ice on my lower left lumbar region. Why the ice, DogLady?, you may ask. Because I got up early and worked out. I'm calling it my 50 Shades of Lenny work out. ... Read more
More Adjustments

Not much for an update, Spark Posse. I was better and not better today. My back didn't hurt but the groin and leg did and the muscles in my thigh were twitching, twitching, twitching. It felt weird and I didn't like it. I went back to the c... Read more
Finally Admitted My Back Needs Professional Help
Monday, March 17, 2014      14 comments

I went to the chiropractor today. I've gone in the past for other issues, but wasn't wild about the last chiropractor, which may explain why I've been messing around with a sore back since June. The new guy came highly recommended by a co-worker... Read more

I mentioned a little over a week ago that The Hubster wanted a spin-cycle. I came around to his way of thinking and last Saturday we plunked down a lot of money on a Diamondback 910ic: ... Read more
On Squeezing in a Work Out
Sunday, March 16, 2014      10 comments

Today somebody wrote about squeezing in a workout even though the gym was closing... I read it right after I squeezed in a very quick work out. My reaction was "Yep. Spot on, girlfriend!" I worked today. Got home around 2:30, bone tired. My... Read more

Yesterday was the last day of the most recent installment of the 50 Shades of Sore class. We'll have a 2 week break and start up again on March 31. Lenny does an assessment on the first and last days of the program. I definitely showed impr... Read more
How Did Steve Siebold Get There?
Thursday, March 13, 2014      8 comments

Not much sleep last night, but I made it through the day. I'm tired enough tonight that insomnia shouldn't be a problem. Today was all about mental toughness. But first you need the background. About 1/3 of my employees are Latino and ... Read more
