Challenge - Week 5
It's hard for me to believe that I'm now five weeks into the challenge. I graduated this week from flexibility to endurance. Holy moly. Good, though. Tuesday was the first day and through the various exercises I wound up doing over 100 squat... Read more
Challenge - Week 4
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
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
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
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....
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
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!
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...
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...
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
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
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
