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
One Things - Day 77 - Back on track
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
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 Sparkpeople.com 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)
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
5:30 AM is a GREAT time to go to the gym!
I've never been a morning person. Even after 2 years of getting up at 4-something, I hate waking up... 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
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
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
A view of the world from behind my eyelids
Thanks Mav. That was an awesome thought. I finished up my last part-time shif last night. It was nothing but anti-climactic. Thursday tends to be a relatively slow night. By the end of my shift, I was surrounded mostly by relatively new hir... Read more
Catching up and the end of the Geek Squad
So much since I took time to linger here. First, morning walks with J have resumed. You might think that recovering from sleep depravity would be incompatible with getting up at 4:30 in the A.M. to walk a quick (relatively) mile, and you woul... Read more
When is a goal not a goal?
I know I said yesterday that getting more sleep was a goal. Truthfully, it was more of a wish. PLMitch commented that it was a good goal, and it made me think..."I really didn't make a goal of it." Well, that's going to take some thought and ... Read more
Rested and ready?...Naw
I've been working on the whole sleep thing. Last night was not helpful. Lots of catch up stuff the last two nights, actually. Not terribly strenuous. I got a haircut, did some shopping. Attempted a light repair at home (need to go shopping ... Read more
