Bill Update..

Friday, April 06, 2012      20 comments

Thank you, everyone, for the well wishes, juju, good thoughts, kind words, and all-around care you've sent our way recently. Bill's surgery on Friday went very well. He stayed in hospital overnight and they cut him loose Saturday morning. ... Read more

Change of plans...

Tuesday, March 27, 2012      34 comments

I won't be going to Pittsburgh or JASR this weekend. Around 8:15 last night, I came in from taking the dogs out back, to find Bill in the kitchen saying something was wrong. His right arm was limp and he couldn't move it, his speech was sl... Read more

Briefly....

Monday, March 26, 2012      13 comments

I was very lucky to get out and get a walk in this afternoon on my lunch half-hour. It's wonderful here today in Portland. A bit brisk, which is just right, and the sun is shining so! Here's what I consider MY bridge LOL the Hawthorne. ... Read more

Trying something different...

Tuesday, March 20, 2012      13 comments

I'm going to do a bit of an experiment. I know, I'm always fiddling/tweaking/twerping around with things to no avail, aren't I? Ah well. Spark says my approx. BMR is 2092. As a refresher, here's the Spark definition of BMR taken from the D... Read more

Why I run...

Thursday, March 15, 2012      10 comments

Because I feel all bad@ss after running on a cold, wet, windy, rainy Portland morning. Because I used to think 'I can't'. Now I know not only that I CAN.. but that I ~wa... Read more

Kinda.. sorta..

Monday, March 12, 2012      23 comments

So I'm kinda sorta back. I don't feel like I'll be going great gangbusters exactly, but easing back into Spark-life such as it is. It's only been two weeks but it's felt longer and shorter, both. I've only started tracking nutrition again ... Read more

Just a little break..

Monday, February 27, 2012      23 comments

So I'm opting to take a bit of a break here. February has been a conundrum for me. Successful efforts fitness-wise for the most part, but not so much for everything else this last week or two. Rather than driving myself even more nuts over... Read more

Weekend Recap.. longish.. with pics!

Monday, February 20, 2012      21 comments

My goodness but it was a busy weekend, all in good ways! Friday night, we DID make it to the gym. Sometimes at the end of a long week it's tempting to say "I'll go tomorrow" or "just do a few things here at home" but not last Friday. It was... Read more

Sometimes...

Friday, February 17, 2012      21 comments

Sometimes I need a personal reminder - from myself TO myself - of just how awesome I am. That sounds conceited, doesn't it? Well, so be it. I am awesome, and I'm getting awesomer by the day. Even bad days contribute to the level of awesomeness b... Read more

Morning quickie....

Thursday, February 16, 2012      21 comments

Just read this in my gym's newsletter. Food for thought! "Weight training or resistance machines. Simply put, every pound of muscle burns 50 calories a day. So if you increase your muscle mass by ten pounds, you will burn an additional 15... Read more

Fanconi 5K is in the books..

Monday, February 13, 2012      22 comments

Yesterday was a great day for the Fanconi 5K. It wasn't raining, even though it was overcast and pretty chilly with a good breeze blowing by. I finished in 40:43, which I consider good considering I ran 5 mi the day before. I'm not a daily runne... Read more

Today was one of those glorious days we're lucky to experience here in Portland - it was cold, bracing cold, and windy as heck, but boy that sky.... such a gorgeous blue, bright, brilliant, beautiful to see. And dry! No Rain! WooHoo! Seven ... Read more
