I've been thinking of you!

Monday, September 15, 2014      12 comments

I biked 43 miles with 5800 feet of elevation gain in 6 hours last Saturday! The event I signed up for was appropriately called Passport 2 Pain: 6500 feet in 50 miles but do you see the elevation gain in those last 7 miles?! Age is just a numb... Read more

Bicycle adventures

Monday, June 23, 2014      10 comments

The week before last, I took off work to ride my bicycle a lot. It's hard to take pictures during mountain biking (think trees and dirt) but here are some from my street bike. I'm sorry if they come out side ways. I can't seem to get them to ... Read more

What's happening!

Sunday, May 25, 2014      6 comments

~Work has been too busy and too stressful. One good thing about it is that we're opening a shelter for 50 women next month because we've been running out of shelter spots some nights. That brings us up to 8 shelters we're running. Whew! Enou... Read more

Cross country skiing plus update

Sunday, March 16, 2014      12 comments

All the rain we've been getting at sea level meant there would be lots of snow on the mountains, so my sister, her boyfriend and I went cross country skiing last weekend. Wow, were we right about the snow. We were glad we decided on a day tr... Read more

What's going on...

Tuesday, January 21, 2014      13 comments

Hi friends. My mother had orthopedic surgery on her ankle, foot and knee last week so I'm in Indiana taking care of her. It took a lot of scrambling to get ready to be away from work for 10 days, which is why I haven't been around SP much. Bu... Read more

Christmas Kayaking

Wednesday, December 25, 2013      14 comments

I got out in the kayak about an hour before the sunset. I love shore birds, especially Sandpipers. I think they were screaming "It's the Bird Papparazzi again! Hide the ki... Read more

December and January goal

Monday, December 16, 2013      12 comments

Gawly, has it really been 2 months since I last blogged?! It's only because when I spend time exercising, eating well, and relieving stress, it leaves less time for computerizing, which I'm not naturally inclined toward anyway. But I'm gratefu... Read more

50 pounds I'll never get back:)

Tuesday, October 15, 2013      16 comments

Sometimes I read blogs about people's progress or discoveries they make as they improve their lifestyles. I get a lot of inspiration from them, so it seems selfish of me to not share mine! Up until this week, my many story lines'es's for why ... Read more

Accountability check

Saturday, October 12, 2013      6 comments

At the beginning of the month, I blogged about my stress relief and calorie deficit goals, so here's my accountability check: Despite doing well at practicing stress relief tactics, I haven't achieved my 300 calorie deficit goals. Maybe if ... Read more

October goal: Relax!

Monday, September 30, 2013      8 comments

Although I want to think I can eventually work everything out on my own, I have to admit I need some accountability. My stress level has been higher the past couple weeks, which causes me to eat terribly. So for October, my goal is to track m... Read more

Life changes

I moved back in with my sister on the island. I'm deeply grateful that I got that sister. She's been so supportive of all my trials, including moving to the city and moving back here last week. I loved living in the city and there are things... Read more

Summer update

I had 3 different families of visitors this past week. I hadn't seen any of them in many years. My friend from school 20 years ago was here with his wife. They live in Missouri. We spent from Sunday through Thursday walking the city, biking,... Read more

My first official 5k

Sunday, July 21, 2013      12 comments

Last summer, I ran Sparkpeople's virtual 5k but I haven't run any 5k's with people because I was intimidated by the usual fears; maybe I'd get trampled by aggressively competitive runners, maybe somebody would point and laugh at the way I run, m... Read more

Wednesday, July 17, 2013      11 comments

I went to the Sky View Observatory in Seattle. It's on the 73rd floor of a downtown building. It was neat! I live in the middle of that neighborhood north of the Space Needle, which I hope you can see. Read more
