Giving Myself Credit
Monday, October 27, 2014      11 comments

I woke up at 5AM. A little too early to go out and run. I didn't want to wake The Hubster, so I went out on the couch and was reading the NYTimes on my phone. Of course, I dozed off. Woke up LATE! 7:15. Even with all my advance preparations, I w... Read more

No work outs. Today was planned rest and prep for the week. I have lunches for the week ready to go. This week's menu includes mu-shoo vegetables and tofu. I haven't decided if I am making brown rice to go with it or not. Depends on the ex... Read more
Big Workout
Saturday, October 25, 2014      12 comments

Today was a planned Big Workout Day. 8 AM I met up with my Running Buddy. I call her that, but we don't really run. We top out at a 12 minute pace and we take walking breaks, but we both know we ran at sub-10 minute pace once upon a time a... Read more
Power Scary Arms
Friday, October 24, 2014      7 comments

I have a case of Power Scary Arms. Power Scary Yoga made me more sore than the 50 Shades class. I think it was the back to back nights of intense arm work. Seth likes to do planks, so we did a lot of this series of moves: High Plank. Lowe... Read more
Power Vinyasa Yoga Day
Thursday, October 23, 2014      9 comments

Today was scary yoga. The instructor calls it power vinyasa yoga. I think that loosely translates into power scary yoga. It's harder than the typical classes that I go to, but I can do it. The instructor has a serious case of "resting b!tc... Read more
Finding the Groove Again

I'm praying the epsom salts do their magic. It was me and the Indian lady today. Today the focus was on arms and shoulders. In addition to the arms, there was plenty of cardio and an intense lower abs exercise. I soaked in the tub afterwards bec... Read more
Another Season of 50 Shades
Monday, October 20, 2014      11 comments

Today was the first day of the Y's "Weight Loss Program" for the fall. This is the program that I fondly refer to as Fifty Shades of Sore. Lenny seemed pretty happy to see me again. I committed to going 2 days each week. I'd love to do 3 days ea... Read more

Tracked Yesterday's Cheeseburger
Friday, October 17, 2014      10 comments

I tracked my food from yesterday a few minutes ago. The cheeseburger did some serious damage and put me 400 calories over the top. I can deal with that. Not nearly as bad as the 526,000,000 calories I thought the cheeseburger was. Today I w... Read more
Yeah... not so much
Thursday, October 16, 2014      7 comments

I stuck to the plan until dinner. We even started on the right foot for dinner, but the "mother nature" restaurant was packed, so we left for another restaurant. I ordered a cheeseburger. It was delicious. Definitely not part of the plan, though... Read more

Today was a long day. I worked until 7:30. I made the commitment to write a weekly blog at work. We publish on Wednesday. I blew off last week. I truly was working 12 hour days and most of it was not at my desk. I tried, but just couldn't ... Read more
No Cookies

Did pretty good today. I went over on calories. Made it to the gym and cycled for 30 minutes. I did some core exercise and lots of stretching for my back. So far, sticking to the plan. I was dying for some cookies this afternoon, but there ... Read more
It Doesn't Get Easier
Monday, October 13, 2014      13 comments

I have written and deleted several blogs, Sparkarinos. What I had to write was whiny, boring or not helpful to me or anyone else. Today I reset my goals. My 50th birthday is January 13. I'd like to be at goal weight by that day. It's possi... Read more
