Sparkertinis! We went down the shore today. The ocean was much too rough for a swim. The life guards were very busy today, whistling people in. Three... Read more

Sparktaculers! Amazingly, I'm still sticking to the plan. Exercising intentionally and eating well with small indulgences. I doubt I will lose through ... Read more

Sparkers. I'm on the annual vacation with my niece and sisters. I cannot get the laptop to connect to the wifi so i am writing this on the fancy pants phone. Apologies up front if the formatting is weird. It seems the phone app may ignore paragr... Read more
Dawg Days, motivation edition
Thursday, August 11, 2016      12 comments

Over the years, Sparkers, we've all explored motivation; keeping it, losing it, finding it. We've all experienced the many stages of motivation. We've share vlogs, blogs, and newspaper articles on the topic. Right now, I'm highly motivated to st... Read more
Dawg Days, ranting about sabotaging friends
Tuesday, August 09, 2016      15 comments

I gotta get a rant off my chest, Spark Friends. Negativity coming your way. I promise to bring it back to positive stuff at the end. But man oh man, I have to rant to you or else my eyes are going to pop out of my head. The pressure is too great... Read more

I am so ready to go home, Sparkers. Vermont is lovely to look at, but I am a city girl. Enough with the rolling hills, the cows and horses, and the quaint little villages. A city common is plenty of green for me. Dan and I had a fantastic ... Read more

Quick post. Dan and I are spending a long weekend in Vermont with friends. He and I went for a bike ride this morning. Heading out, all downhill. Return home, all uphill. 573 feet. Talk about sucking wind. I learned a lot about gear ratios today... Read more

So far so good, Sparkniks. I've been tracking my food. I've maintained a calorie deficit. I've been exercising. I'm getting plenty of sleep. I'm doing all the right things. I hopped on the scale this morning and it is inching its way down. ... Read more
Dawg Days, yes and no edition

It was an active day, Sparkelonians. Long bike ride on the trail with a friend from work this morning. We had coffee and a not-so-healthy snack when we reached the end of the ride. No guilt, though. I'm hypoglycemic at the end despite a big brea... Read more
Dawg Days, open water swim edition
Thursday, July 28, 2016      13 comments

Sparklies! It was a gorgeous day today. We had our staff retreat and were finished early. I swam a little bit, but the harbor has lots of boats and the water was icky, so I didn't stay in very long. But I had the bug, so I went swimming once I m... Read more
Dawg Days, polite button pushing edition

Today's subject, Spark Students, polite button pushing. I almost always do a plank of some sort as part of my work out. Roll-out planks on a stability ball (I don't like them at all.) Planks around the world (side plank on the left, regula... Read more

At today's work out with Andrew, I asked him if we could try split lunges again. I couldn't do them back in April when we first tried. Way too much pain. No way I could even consider it. https://www.youtube.com/

Dawg Update. I'm stilling working out 3 days a week with young Andrew cracking the whip. He's the kindest trainer on the planet. Always encouraging. Always gentle. Always positive. Always pushing without making it seem like he's pushing. ... Read more
