The Little Engine
Ok, I'm REALLY out of the loop around here, but new things are starting and I'm including being back to sparking more as part of the new beginnings.
Biggest news for me, for those who didn't hear through FB, is that I put my notice in at my... Read more
Things to Remember, Part. 1
I'm trying to remember many things. Things like:
I ALWAYS feel better after I exercise. It is so hard to remember this when I'm trying to get to it though. Maybe I need to stick a post-it on my computer to remind me. And even though I'm rea... Read more
Day 1, and A New Plan
Tuesday, June 7, 2011
20 min bike ride
10 min walk with 1 short SLOW jog (1 lightpost to the next)
5 min stretching

So, I've GOT to get myself back into the swing of fitness things. In my effort to get f... Read more
For those of you who know I'm a runner, this is not what you might be expecting. I didn't do a race this weekend, though one of my favorites was on Saturday, the annual Make-a-Wish run. I'm just not back at the point where I could run a signific... Read more
Do Re Mi
I went for a walk today. I decided that I would combine running an errand with getting some exercise in finally, so I walked to the market for a few things I needed to get for a dish I was asked to bring to a church party tonight. I didn't need ... Read more
I am really still alive... I think
Hey Guys! Sorry I've been soo MIA for the last few months! Being sick in June (ALL of June!) really did a number on me both physically and mentally. I'd love to say I'm back in the game, but I'm not really. But I'm ready to consider the game aga... Read more
Another Aspect to April here
Summers here are hot. I mean, REALLY hot. Everything struggles to survive, to endure the heat - the animals, the plants, and the people. Rose bushes are working too hard to put out many blooms. However, in the springtime, as it's just getting ... Read more
April Food Ramblings
No, not the kind where pictures would be a nice touch. I just had various thoughts going through my mind and decided I would jot them down.
- I'm trying to decide if trying out all the different possibilities of food in my food tracker is a... Read more
Just to distract myself
I've been wrestling with health insurance red-tape today as I am (STILL) trying to get health insurance. I mean, how hard should it be? I'm very healthy, I hardly ever see the doc except for the required check-ups to get my prescriptions refille... Read more
Whatever it takes...
to win that battle of wills. Today, I won it twice, or near enough to my satisfaction.
I had some free time today, so I went for a LSD run (long, slow, distance run, for my non-runner readers, not a drug-induced hallucinogenic one, LOL!) I ... Read more
Trying this instead...
... instead of just tossing in the towel and giving up and emptying the kitchen.
Today is not being a good day. My weight is up AGAIN. What is this - 3rd, 4th, 5th week in a row? Why am I even trying so hard if I'm just going to fail every ... Read more
March Update #1 - Self Checkup and Random thoughts
So, I've just been feeling kind of out of it, disconnected and less motivated lately. A very dear friend (you know who you are!) started challenging me the other day about why that was, asking me what's going on in my life and what emotions I'm ... Read more
I did it because of the literary implications, LOL!
Stole this from Suezette414, who stole it from Cassiopeia, who stole it from RunningWild, who stole it from Kayakid:
When's the last time you ran? Late afternoon yesterday
Do your jeans have rips, tears, and holes in them? Nope

This one was for you, Trish
Make-a-Wish's Run for a Wish 2010 was held last saturday, Feb 6. This was the second year I'd done this race. Last year I did it with my son, who did the un-timed. The year before I was signed up for it as my very first 5K, but wasn't able to at... Read more
Ups, Downs, The Bitter and the Sweet
As I was running errands today I was thinking about a particular friend who is going through a rough time this week, having just lost his mom. I pondered on those times when I was having similarly hard times, a death in the family, a child with ... Read more
