Random Observations
Monday, October 26, 2015      9 comments

Quick check in with some random observations, Sparkers. I am still brutally sore. Despite that, I did well at PT this morning. Andrew had the right mix of exercises and I did great. It's a small thing, but being able to step down with one leg of... Read more
Recovery Set Back
Sunday, October 25, 2015      12 comments

On Wednesday last week, Andrew and I thought we'd turned the corner and my recovery had shifted to more "good days" than "not good days." I had a great, relatively pain-free work out. Monday was similar. Tuesday was pretty good, too. Thursday I ... Read more
Undone by a Fish Cake

I just wrote a comment on another Sparker's blog that it can be so hard to eat differently than the other people in the room. Lately I haven't cared. I pack my lunch when I have full day meetings and I "eat what's in the bag" as ONEKIDSMOM says.... Read more
Constant Cravings
Tuesday, October 20, 2015      10 comments

Today's topic is cravings. I'm experiencing cravings but not in the way that I typically think of cravings. For instance, if you had a plate of brownies to share and we were enjoying a cuppa together, I would not even consider the brownie. I wou... Read more

How have so many days gone by and I've not blogged? Oh. I know. Early start to the day and then not getting home until after 9:00 at night. That's how. As I caught up on the blogs, I kept reading about people's little food indiscretions. Co... Read more
My Family and the Holidays
Monday, October 12, 2015      10 comments

Lots of talk about holidays. Already. Thanksgiving in Canada. Halloween at the end of the month. Thanksgiving in the US. Then the wall-to-wall excuse for eating, which is the month of December. And today is Columbus Day in the US and I had the d... Read more

Another Assessment and Passive Food Pushers
Thursday, October 08, 2015      11 comments

I knew you were going to tell me to stop messing around and call the doctor. Thank you for being so strong in your response to yesterday's blog. I researched a new primary care and called to make an initial appointment. I'm waiting to hear back.... Read more
The Party is Over
Wednesday, October 07, 2015      11 comments

This morning seems like such a long time ago, it doesn't feel like I actually wrote a blog before I left the house. Today was shaping up to be Day 3 of a Much Happier Dog, but alas, it sorta fell apart at the fitness center. Andrew and I ma... Read more

It has been a couple of long days, Sparkers. I am up for my PT. It doesn't take me an hour and a half to get ready, but I need to be up and moving at 4:30 to warm up the old bones. I have had an extraordinary Monday and Tuesday, Sparkers. N... Read more
It's Just a Number
Sunday, October 04, 2015      7 comments

Early blog for today, Sparkaneers. Reading WATERMELLEN's blog today got me thinking. Time for some introspection and thinking out loud. I'm sure you've all read her lament about staying the same weight while on vacation. (Forgive me, WATERM... Read more
Girls Lift
Saturday, October 03, 2015      8 comments

I definitely rested today, Sparkers. Slept late. Took a nap. Surfed. Sparked. Made revisions to my meals for the week. Read. Cooked a little. To be honest, that is all I am up to. Very sore today. I don't want to move very much. I'm supposed to ... Read more
The Dog's Work Out
Friday, October 02, 2015      7 comments

Well Sparkers. I didn't go to NJ. An adamant husband who beat some sense into my thick head. Too much pain. Not enough rest. Driving 4.5 hours will not help me. My niece said the event may have live streaming, so hopefully I will still see her l... Read more
