I wasn't going to blog today. I have to leave in a half hour to visit a friend. But I'm catching up on the notes, spark goodies, and well-wishes from all of you. I feel like I have to acknowledge your kindness and support. First of all --- ... Read more

Thank you, everyone, for listening to me whine. I'm done now. I read all of your blogs with all your progress and victories and determination. I reviewed my goals. I reviewed my goal board. I did the review in order to remind myself of the... Read more

I've been sulking Sparkaloons. No way around it. The Good Times 5K is "Good Times" in part because the registration for the race is at a bar and the post-race shenanigans are at the same bar. I thought The Hubster was going to meet me at th... Read more
Waddled a 5K
Tuesday, April 08, 2014      16 comments

Today was the first Good Times 5K in my fair city. I made up my mind that I wasn't going. I haven't run once outside this year. 99% of the time when I jog on the dreadmill, I feel great. But there was time I just couldn't do it. The Hubster and ... Read more
Still Acting Tough

Not much excitement out here, Sparkers. I'm doing my thing. Took Sunday off. I needed to rest, rest, rest. Spent most of my afternoon camped out on the sofa with a trashy novel. I'm solo on Monday's 50 Shades class. I'm able to do almost e... Read more
Lesson Learned and First Bike Ride of the Season

90 Days of sticking to my exercise and nutrition plan. I learned a lot during those 90 days. I learned even more on Day 91 and Day 92. On Day 91 (yesterday) I realized as I was putting out snacks for an employee workshop, that I could have ... Read more
My 90 Days

Not sure what to say that my compatriots in the 90 Day Mental Toughness didn't already say. I am glad that I made it. I would not have stuck with it if I didn't have others on the journey with me. I think I am going to continue for another ... Read more

Just got back from the 50 Shades class. I was pretty much on my own since Lenny was breaking in some new recruits. Not sure what was different, but "The Hard Guys" who are regular lifters started talking to me. Not just friendly grunts. Real co... Read more

I lasted pain free for about 30 hours. I felt a tightness creep in around 11 and when I left for a 1:00 lunch appointment, I could hardly stand the pain walking to my car. But I toughed it out and made it. I had my lunch meeting, raised a l... Read more

How do you take a selfie of a pain free back? This is the best I could do for my #100HappyDays post. After being completely miserable Saturday and only partly misera... Read more
Clean Up Day
Sunday, March 30, 2014      8 comments

Working on Saturdays messes up my schedule. It's a mad rush to get things done on Sunday. One more day of taxes on April 5. I have to work April 12 - a board/management planning retreat. Then my weekends are my own unless I choose to work. ... Read more

Not only do I live in an old, converted mill building, but now I work in one. My office is in a building that is in a U shape. I'm on the second floor. The windows are 10' high and they span the entire length of our space. I am fortunate to have... Read more

Tonight after work, I picked up The Hubster and we went to the Y because we don't have a life outside of work and exercise. I was so ready to run, but my leg wasn't so sure. Donna the Pilates Instructor was in between classes and we got to talki... Read more
