One thing that annoys me with SparkPeople is that you can't upload pictures in the comments or private messages, only in blogs. I saw this cartoon today and immediately thought of JEANKNEE's "I like your top" blog and the wild child t-shir... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, playlist
Sunday, February 11, 2018      13 comments

I cracked myself up yesterday. It was unseasonably warm for here, 35*F and it felt even warmer since we'd just gone through a week of very cold weather, 20*F. With the 5K coming up on St. Patrick's day, I decided to do my run outdoors. No e... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, International potluck
Thursday, February 08, 2018      17 comments

Just to be clear about my last post - the one about plucking out eyes and driving over cookies - I really did it. I really did take the package of cookies, throw them out of the car and onto the street and then I drove the car over the cookies. ... Read more
My Life as a Dawg: Dawg Scripture
Tuesday, February 06, 2018      26 comments

I'm sure you've all heard some variation on this verse from the Bible: If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown ... Read more
Whole 30: recap
Saturday, February 03, 2018      24 comments

Where am I with the Whole 30? I know. This is the question that has been keeping you awake at night. I keep saying that I'm going to add dairy in next, but the only dairy we have in the house is the cream for tea and I use a teaspoon per cu... Read more

Thursday, February 01, 2018      15 comments

Well, Sparkers. I had my cuppa tea yesterday morning. It was perfect. The water fully boiling, poured over the Barry's tea. Steeped for 4 minutes. One teaspoon of sugar. One teaspoon of cream. Ahhhh... perfection. I had a second cup. It was wond... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, How sore were you?
Wednesday, January 31, 2018      17 comments

Holy soreness, Sparkers! On Monday I reported that I did 30 hard minutes on the stationary bike after my work out. And that Dan was hoping I'd run with him Monday evening. Well, I did get on the treadmill. He went for 30 minutes. I went fo... Read more
Whole 30: last day
Tuesday, January 30, 2018      36 comments

Today is the last of the Whole 30 elimination diet. The last day of craving my nice cuppa tea. I was going to cave today, but then I read Krizsta's blog about how she regretted going off her meal plan. I can survive another 24 hours without cre... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, Pushing harder on the workouts
Monday, January 29, 2018      17 comments

Sparkalinis! Nothing like a 5K to light a fire under my butt. My workouts have kicked up a notch. So... I have a 6 AM Crew story. Last Friday, there was a new guy in the mix. He was "fitting in" a workout and there was an opening sinc... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, 5K sooner rather than later
Thursday, January 25, 2018      18 comments

I told you about the 5K that my agency is sponsoring in June. I told you that I haven't run a lick since some time before Thanksgiving. I told you that I've been doing the bare minimum for exercise and I need to get back into it. That made ... Read more

Quickie, Sparkers. This morning, I resolved to have a decent cup of tea with cream and sugar. And when it came time to do it, I didn't. I took my black tea with me to the car en route to the gym. I hated it. Black. Acidic. Bleh. I poured it out.... Read more

The desire to quit is strong, Sparkers. This Whole 30 elimination diet is growing old. I'm ready to start reintroducing foods, but I'm working very hard at sticking it out until January 30th. One more week. I so want a nice cuppa tea with cream ... Read more
Whole 30: 20 days down, 10 to go
Saturday, January 20, 2018      17 comments

I'm still compliant with Whole 30. For the most part it hasn't been any harder than a Beck Trek. As with any strict meal plan, there are moments where I want to rebel. This morning I really, really, really wanted a cup of tea my way. Dan wa... Read more

I don't usually feel very emotional when a celebrity or artist dies. There are times, though, when a particular artist's death bothers me. Freddie Mercury is one. Tom Petty is the other. Both of them were great artists. Freddie Mercury, especial... Read more
