Challenge - Week 4

Sunday, January 31, 2016      5 comments

So, this week it seems like I'm really moving forward. We've moved from a good portion of the hour being stretching to incorporating more strength training. And, my arms can feel it. Actually, many parts of me can tell. I still stretch... Read more

Challenge - Week 3

Sunday, January 24, 2016      2 comments

This week I met with the trainer two times instead of three as he had a wedding to attend. Worked out okay as I like to run mall errands on Friday night. I thought I had errands, but wound up getting nothing. Good for the wallet. I did... Read more

Challenge - Week 2

Sunday, January 17, 2016      4 comments

I've completed Week 2 and am so glad I gave this a go. The trainer I wound up with is a good guy. What impresses me is that he doesn't "go easy." No light weights here - at least they aren't light to me. He doesn't assume I can't, but rather ... Read more

Challenge - Week 1

Sunday, January 10, 2016      2 comments

The challenge started this week. Only two days, rather than three due to the start date, but it will go to three this coming week. The first day was evaluating my range of motion, via my form in squats, and learning stretches to work out... Read more

It's a New Year and a Challenge....

Thursday, December 31, 2015      2 comments

This past year for me has been good and a little frustrating. I've been in my new locale for about a year and a half now. The job is okay, but nothing that will allow me to grow, so I'll have to make a decision about that. I'm enjoying being ... Read more

I'm still here. Just struggling a bit. This move has been tougher than I thought and the proof is in the weight gain. It could have been worse, but it's still a little defeating to realize that what one maintains for several years is gone in ... Read more

Questions - response

Sunday, March 08, 2015      2 comments

Another SP'er posted these questions a little while ago and I thought I'd take up the challenge. So, here goes. Do you like dogs or cats? I like both, but have a cat. I love on other people's dogs whenever the opportunity presents it... Read more

It's a new year!

Saturday, January 24, 2015      3 comments

I'm back! Well, I've been here, but doing one day at at a time. I'm trying to start the new year off right - tracking food, exercising, and hopefully eating better. One of my goals is more fruit. Last week was a success - right at three ... Read more

It's been a while...

Saturday, September 13, 2014      6 comments

Yes, I'm still here, though my Sparking has been erratic at best. I can't believe it's been over a year since I blogged. A lot has changed. I made peace with my Georgia town and work did get better. I hired some great people, some also t... Read more

Getting back to cooking...

Saturday, July 27, 2013      5 comments

It's been ages since I checked in. Things are going well. I'm trying to get more time in the evening, which means my computer time in general in curtailed. In fact, I consider it a victory of sorts when I don't fire up the computer in the eve... Read more

Well, it's not like I didn't see this coming, but seeing it on the scale is a little depressing. Yes, I've gained weight. Since November, when I'd gained a bit. It could be worse, but I know I'm on a path to just keep gaining weight and well,... Read more

Laid low...

Saturday, March 16, 2013      5 comments

I know I've kind of dropped off the radar, but hopefully I'll be back soon. The move went well, but was harder than I thought it would be. While I love the peace of this place, the limited closets and storage have proved to be challengin... Read more

I have been sporadic here on SP lately and I miss it. I have a good reason though -- next Sunday I'm moving. About six miles up the road. Still that entails packing, which is just something I hate to do. Almost with a passion. It's weird. O... Read more

Year in Review... 2012

Monday, December 31, 2012      3 comments

Tomorrow we'll welcome 2013. This has made me a bit reflective. It's been quite a year for me, both good and bad. The good -- I accepted what has turned out to be a good job opportunity. I attended not one, but two, very good professiona... Read more

Figuring things out...

Sunday, November 18, 2012      5 comments

It's been a while and Thanksgiving is almost here. I've decided not to move. A variety of reasons, but I just didn't want to give up the open floor plan as it's just me, I didn't want to take trash to a dumpster at the end of the street, and I... Read more
