Virtual Appalachian Trail redux
Tuesday, April 12, 2016      4 comments

Before the big accident last year, I was planning a virtual bike ride of the Appalachian Trail. This Spring, my employer/insurance company/benefits department are sponsoring a virtual walk. So, I'm part of a team of 11 people who will be measu... Read more
New job, new shoes
Monday, February 22, 2016      1 comments

What more could you ask for in one week, I guess. The new job isn't really new. It's the exact same job, with a commute that is 26 miles shorter. I can remember when I would have thought a 26 mile commute was excessive, but now 41 is shorter.... Read more
Ooh looky. Two days in a row.

So, two days into tracking everything I eat, and I discover that my food choices are all out of whack. OK, honestly that really wasn't much of a surprise. Even without tracking, I know pretty much what I eat. I met my calorie goal, but that's... Read more
I'm back! Not another year to waste.

Not a New Year's resolution. I don't really do them. But, I did kind of take a big, lazy weekend off, to kind of build a barrier between last year and this. Some new things. I've never been good at keeping a journal, but I'm a bit into one, ... Read more
Checking in and catching up

OK, bloggers. Do you ever go back and reread your past blogs? I just did, and it's kind of depressing. Not if I go back far enough, but for the past year. Obviously, I've been MIA (Missing in Action, for the uninitiated). Or perhaps UA (Una... Read more

Monday, June 15, 2015      0 comments

Started my team walking challenge today. I intentionally walked 1.2 miles in just under 20 minutes. For the whole day, I walked 3.5 miles. Not a bad start, considering it was like walking in a sauna. For the job, I spent the whole day in... Read more
One Things - Day 76 - Reboot

This seemed like such a good idea. Pick a few things. Do one thing for each area of my life that needs work each day. make regular progress. It is a good idea. Unfortunately, I never really made a plan of it. I just got through the day, ca... Read more
One Things - Day 8 - Friends Don't Let Friends Shop Sleep Deprived
Tuesday, April 07, 2015      3 comments

First thought: I needed to do a little quick shopping last night, while severely sleep-deprived. (See below) Being very tired, my body was feeling the need for some quick energy. As I've sworn off caffeine (also below), it wanted sugar. Lot... Read more
One Things - Day Six

Had a great Easter with the kiddoes, well two of them anyway. Number two had to work. Nice healthy Easter dinner. Not very much activity. Still managed to take care of three out of four One Things. Looking forward to tomorrow, which I need ... Read more
One Thing - Day Four

End of the week, at last. Mixed results on the One Things. Most important, I managed to check in to every day since I started. Progress is progress. Planning to go bike riding tomorrow, finally. The weather is promising ... Read more
I have decided and "One Things" Day one (again)
Tuesday, March 31, 2015      5 comments

Some confessions. I haven't been to the gym since I blogged about it back in January. It was great, but I'm still not a morning person. Until today anyway. I made it back today. It wasn't nearly as much fun as that last trip, but was much m... Read more

Just don't call it starting over!

First a mea culpa - The "Walking to Mom's House" thing seemed like a great idea, for about 3 days. By that time, my knees were in full rebellion. I was already headed to the doctor to have an injection in the more painful of them, so I thought... Read more
Walking to Mom's house in a year challenge -- Day 3
Wednesday, August 13, 2014      3 comments

I'm off to an embarrassing start. Only 1 mile on Monday. I let an inconvenient change in plans by daughter number 2 derail my evening walk. Not her fault. I'm in charge. Yesterday it rained and I only got in one mile then as well. I se... Read more
Walking to Mom's house in a year challenge -- Day 1
Monday, August 11, 2014      5 comments

One thing my lack of progress this year has taught me, is that I work best with a clear measurable goal. Last year, it was walking in my first 5k. Now I don't know how much of a walk it takes to get to your Mom's house, but according to Google... Read more
