Free range puppy

Friday, November 09, 2012

Free range work puppy reminding me that I haven't given her a treat yet.

And if you notice, she is *also* reminding me which drawer the treats are in.

    haha awesome! I have a free range house puppy. Asking for treats takes on a new meaning when it's in your own home ;)

have a free range work puppy would greatly reduce my stress. That's a great idea!

    She is so adorable! I have two shih-tzus, they also remind me when I forget their treats. Occasionally, one of them stands by the utility room where I keep the special treats. emoticon

That time again

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

It is time to go through the SP friend list.

I try not to delete people too quickly. I know from experience that life happens.

But I dislike the feeling of being "collected" to increase one's friend count.

I would hope that people would add me to their friend list because they feel that I am funny, witty or just want to know what dumb thing I'm going to do next.

So there will be some deleting and some moving people down to the bottom of the list. I always feel a bit funny doing it, but it does help my SP experience be more positive.

So let purge begin....

I go through mine often, too. I look for people who respond to my blogs, post things on my wall, comment on statuses, etc.

I also look for people who are TRYING to be healthy and utilize SparkPeople. It's amazing how many people don't do this.

Uh, I hope I make the purge.

    Keeping my fingers crossed too!

I have done the same thing myself. A couple of times I think. I want to know my spark friends so just to be on their list and never hear from them means nothing to me. I've only offended one person by my action and her reaction did hurt but I learned to get over it.

Now, about your wittiness! Yes, I love to hear about your crazy life, attempts to stay out prison and not punch people....but seriously above all else you motivate me. You are a courageous woman and I am proud to call you a friend!

    Puuuu-lese! You are just too awesome for me to ditch!!

If someone is concerned if they are going to make the cut then we are probably friends.

If they have no clue who I am but they noticed their number dipped down by one....that is another story!

Pool running recap

Monday, November 05, 2012

So the plan was to run a 1/2 marathon in my gym's pool.

I figured out how many laps I needed to do (393, but was shooting for 400), had pennies at one end of the pool to help me keep track, had my Gu and G2.

I got a few looks when I moved a penny from one container to another. A couple people asked how many laps I was doing. I told them 400. Every single person (okay it was only 3) thought I meant yards not laps.

Then why would I need the pennies???

It was a lot harder than I expected it to be. Partly because I wasn't hurting so it seemed silly to stop. I wasn't over-heated, but I was definitely breathing hard at points. But I was certainly feeling the resistance!

Full disclosure, after the first 100 laps I would swim the 10 meters in the deep end. At first I was still using running form even though I wasn't touching the bottom. I began to wonder if I was "running" too fast and would end up pulling something. I decided that too much of this was new that I would try that some other time.

I also found that the more people that were swimming in the pool the harder it was to keep going straight. I'm sure that was great for some part of my body because it made me put in even more effort.

I got to 300 laps and stopped to take a drink and a breather. And then it hit me just how tired I was. It was kind of weird since nothing was sore or felt beat up. I was just scragged.

So inaugural run went to 10 miles and not 13.1, but I am completely confident that I will make it next time.

In fact, with our wacky weather, I'm thinking about just making it a early Saturday morning ritual (except for the Seattle 1/2 marathon weekend!)

So the test was a success for the most part! Yay!
