precious

Friday, November 07, 2014      17 comments

Precious:a resource of great value; not to be wasted or treated carelessly. I have a challenge for you, and myself. Each time you think about your body, insert the word "precious" as the first, and perhaps only, adjective. I just ate a nutr... Read more

It's been awhile

Wednesday, October 15, 2014      11 comments

This is a long blog so if you don't know me, feel free to skip it, but I have the urge to reconnect with my Sparkly friends. I have not Sparked for two weeks, and I have not blogged for over a month. But, I cannot spare energy for guilt so I am ... Read more

I got my body into this...

Tuesday, August 19, 2014      8 comments

so it is my job and my obligation to get my body out of this. That is the thought I had when encountering altitude sickness while climbing Grouse Mountain (see previous blog) and that is the thought I have about being 5'3- ish and weighing 188 p... Read more

Well, that was humbling...

Monday, August 18, 2014      12 comments

This past Friday morning, I headed up to beautiful Vancouver, BC with some good friends, to tackle Grouse Mountain, the infamous (and rightly so) Grouse Grind. 1.8 miles, 2800 feet, and nearly 3,000 "stairs" (I am 5'3" - these rough, uneven stai... Read more

You just have to adapt

Fighting for her life

Tuesday, July 22, 2014      9 comments

I began today at the gym with my best friend. We were doing circuit training. The last circuit was a boxing workout. I punched first, she held the mitts. She laughed as I began to punch. "Oh my God, you are punching so hard it's like you are thi... Read more

To Boot Camp or not to Boot Camp...

Friday, July 18, 2014      14 comments

that was the question. I previously blogged about swearing off Boot Camps because I honestly feel I had basically aged out of them. Then, my best friend, who is stubborn and disagreed with my assessment, bought me a punch card so I could work ou... Read more

I'm on to my self

Wednesday, July 09, 2014      17 comments

A few months ago, I promised, via a blog, to share some lessons learned from my visits to a very helpful therapist. This is a therapist who has restored my belief that therapy is a useful tool. Well, she and a friend of mine who is also in the p... Read more

"I don't want to restrict my food, give up sugary foods, pizza, etc etc etc because I already don't drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes - I don't want to give up EVERYTHING - wah wah wah wah.....!" That, my Sparkly friends, is my vintage WHINE. T... Read more

That is what I whispered to my best friend, after we stopped to chat with a woman on the trail. My best friend and I set out on this gorgeous sunny Pacific Northwest day, with our four combined dogs (she left one of hers, a sweet but ancient La... Read more

Hi beautiful, Sparkly people. I've been AWOL for over 30 days but I trust you won't throw me in the Sparkly brig. Knowing you, you will welcome me back open-armed, because that is the kind of people you are Read more

a measure of fitness

Tuesday, March 25, 2014      11 comments

I recently saw a definition of fitness: "flexibility, strength, endurance, balance". If your immediate thought was to feel bad and think that you don't possess any of these qualities, or at least not enough of these qualities, I am kindly asking... Read more
