Avoiding Adulting!
Wednesday, May 05, 2021      4 comments

Well, not entirely avoiding it. I did do the dishes and get groceries today as well as some vacuuming and cat litter, but cleaning is also how I avoid "adulting" like homework. I love doing geoarchaeology but this book we're reading, while ... Read more
Weekly Check-In, Cycling + MMJ
Saturday, May 01, 2021      4 comments

I lost weight but my scale says it was muscle. BOO! That means I'm probably going to bounce back up again next week, too. However, I lost a couple inches off my hips in the last month, increased my biceps size, and decreased my calf size (one da... Read more
Feeling productive today!

This week we are focusing on decluttering our lives in the 5% Spring Challenge. This is a hard one for me because I have ADHD and am neurodivergent. I've been doing 10 minutes a day, although not always all at once, but today I went on a tear! ... Read more
Hump Day
Wednesday, April 21, 2021      8 comments

And over the hump I go! Yesterday, I got my first Covid shot. Today, my arm is sore, but otherwise, I feel fine. I think I'm getting some orthostatic hypotension as I've been getting kind of dizzy when standing up too fast. I have a follow... Read more

I should be working on my cultural anthropology and geoarchaeology assignments which are due tonight, especially considering I lose 3 hours of work time to zoom classes today, but I'm procrastinating. You know it's bad when you'd rather go beat ... Read more

Saturday, April 10, 2021      4 comments

I am officially down 5% since I rejoined the Spark family on March 2. Woot! I'm down 3-ish pounds since the Spring 5% Challenge started last week which is a great start to getting a 5% loss over the next several weeks with my PAWSOME team the Sp... Read more

Today is the first day of the spring challenge and I'm feeling good and accomplished! I had a great steady-state bike ride on my stationary bike with Rebecca Rusch!! If you're into mountain biking, you know. ;) Gorgeous scenery through the mount... Read more
Weekly Weigh-In
Monday, March 29, 2021      3 comments

This is one of those days I'm glad to have a scale that measures body fat and muscle mass and not just weight. The scale went up 0.6 pounds but my muscle mass went up 1.1 lbs (yes!) and my body fat went down 0.5 lb so it all works out! I lost so... Read more
Spring Break is Over!
Sunday, March 28, 2021      4 comments

Woke up to a thunderstorm this morning which made me smile and feel happy that I was ensconced in my blankets in my bed listening to the rain and booming. I was kind of hoping for storms all day, that cozy sort of storm that begs for tea and bis... Read more
iFit Ride #2

I'm doing the Caribbean ride program for beginners, and today, we went down to Cemetery Beach in the Caymans, which was probably one of the prettiest, cleanest cemeteries I've ever seen. I actually managed to sit the saddle for most of the... Read more
Patting myself on the back
Tuesday, March 23, 2021      1 comments

Every time I complete a workout, I give myself some self-love. I sit down with my post-workout snack and water and tell myself how proud I am of me. I treat my inner child to a warm hug and tell me how I'm doing amazing things. I remind myself o... Read more

After three weeks I'm at 8.4 total pounds lost which is awesome! I'm still working hard on ironing out my "happy medium," but things are going well and I'm proud of myself for the effort I'm making. Next week I'm hoping to reach 10 lbs total los... Read more
Hyperfocus doom!
Saturday, March 20, 2021      3 comments

I think all the work I've done around the house the last two days and spending 2-1/2 hours putting together my new NordicTrack bike has sapped more energy than doing a workout! I'm looking forward to visiting my equines tomorrow and maybe workin... Read more
Cleaning and Creativity
Friday, March 19, 2021      2 comments

I spent 90 minutes today cleaning off my old desk (so it can be dismantled and taken out of the living room) as well as ripping carpeting off the stairs and then doing general clean-up around the living/dining room. The Chewy boxes were starting... Read more
First Day of Spring Break!
Thursday, March 18, 2021      1 comments

I finished my last final last night. I got A's in all four of my classes this term (Woot! Dean's List!) so I'm super excited about that. I have off now until Mar 29 and I fully intend to enjoy my days off. I've gone back to juicing my green... Read more
