or, why can't I have any? Since school is out, the kids don't have to get up early in the morning. Because of that, I haven't made them go to bed at their normal bed time. I mean, it is summer, right? Because they stay up later, I don't get ... Read more
Today is my Spark People one year anniversary! I would also like to brag just a little bit, cos I'm pretty excited about it. I have logged in and spun the wheel every day for the entire year! I know, in a way that's kind of sad (no real life)... Read more
What a great day!
Yep, today was the day that I got to play softball. First game at 8:00...yes, that's AM! I had to borrow a blue shirt from my daughter. I don't have any blue shirts in my closet!! I couldn't believe it when I checked.
I played left fie... Read more
Tomorrow is the softball tourney that I signed up for! So glad that I only signed up on Wednesday. I'd be going nuts if I had signed up earlier and had to wait longer! LOL! I've packed an extra set of clothes (there's a no-blood rule, whatev... Read more
Okay, so that was the wrong strategy....
Marathon of meetings today. Because of that, I went into work early, hoping to actually get something done. That part worked. But, since I went to work early, I got up early and I was really tired. So, drank some DP. Okay, drank a lot of DP... Read more
One of the ladies I work with is an avid softball player. Yesterday, she forwarded me an e-mail about a ladies-only tournament this weekend in Boise (20 minutes from where I live). I waffled all day and last night trying to decide if I wanted ... Read more

Why is it that you want to eat more...
when you've just decided to eat better? At least I do. My calorie range is down since my weight range is up. My meal plan gave me plenty of food, spaced nicely so I always had food when I got hungry. So, what did I want? Lots and lots of wh... Read more
Okay, it's not the scale lying, it's me lying to myself. I set my range to be between 130 and 135. I have consistently been over the 135 for the last two weeks. Not much over, just 1 - 2 pounds, but that's enough. I'm going back to my weight... Read more
Do you know what happens when you microwave a cell phone?
I do! Yesterday, I get a phone call from a number that I don't recognize. I usually don't answer if I don't know who it is, but it was a local number and I thought it might be my kids calling. It was. My son was on the line and almost in tea... Read more
Progress and Initial tests
So, I started the 200 squats challenge today. According to the chart, if I could do more than 31 (for my age group) I ranked "excellent". I did 70. That's excellent even for the young whipper snappers (under 30)! Woo Hoo! So, I'm starting o... Read more
Challenges and dinner - no, not related!
Okay, dinner first. DH made tacos. Yum! Even if he made stuff I hate (like Sour Patch Kids), I would have still said THANK YOU and eaten it. ... Read more
Griping can be effective
My status yesterday mentioned that I was tired of cooking. I mentioned it to my DH as well. He has agreed to cook dinner tomorrow night! Yippee!!! Every once in awhile, you just gotta let people know when you're done and they can pick up the... Read more
It's bad, but I laughed pretty hard...
The guy I car pool with is an avid cyclist. The road to and from work has a portion that is VERY windy with no shoulders. I personally would never ride my bike on that road. Drivers have difficulty seeing other people on the road and there is... Read more

8-minute mile and more
Okay, I was supposed to do an hour long DVD for my workout today. My heart just wasn't in it. So, I decided to go for a short two-mile run/jog instead. About two minutes into it I decided to see if I could run an eight minute mile (one of the... Read more
