Between using mostly upper body when swimming, increasing shoulders, arms and upper back workout, and woodworking, my shirts are fitting me differently now. Not very comfy at the shoulders. They feel stretched. Other people exercise and get... Read more

My husband decided not to swim today during the kids swim lessons so I get to. It's nice not to have to watch the time. 2250 yard at 52 minutes; 10 laps kicks, 35 laps mix of freestyle pull (sporadic 2 beat kicks to keep balance) and breas... Read more

This line caught my eyes when I open mySpark start page; "Do one thing today to make you feel proud of yourself." Yes. My workout today is building a furniture for my back deck. I am waiting for the lumber order to be ready for pick up. It'... Read more

Here we are at the end of the third month of the year. And you know what? I met one of my goals; not to be obsessed about the scale. I haven't weighed myself for a few weeks and haven't felt the urge to look. I have no idea what I weigh now... Read more

My 12 years old daughter is working on getting fitter. She has Girls on the Run training twice a week, swimming once a week, and she walks or runs on other days. She is doing much better that I have been doing. I better chase after her... Read more

It has been 5 weekends updating furniture in the house. What started out with changing my work desk, rolled on to various furniture throughout the house. The positive notes to this happening; LOTS of purging. Toys, clothes, books, garbage... Read more

I swam 3.25 mile this week! Much better than it had been the past year and a half. 2 miles left to reach 50 miles mark. My daughter baked a chocolate cake with homemade chocolate marshmallow frosting. I had a really small slice. It was good... Read more

Got 0.5 mile swim in. It was very slow. I am still exhausted from our 4 days kids bedrooms renovation. I went grocery shopping afterward. Walked around for another hour. And now I am wide awake and it's almost midnight. Argh... I ... Read more

I was aiming a sub 45 minutes 1 mile swim last night. My fastest was 38 minutes but that was when I swam almost daily. I haven't got there yet this time around. I tend to warm up slowly and get faster only after 20 laps. My tracked swims nu... Read more

Now that I have sat back and reviewed everything, I am making a progress. I figured out what calories range work for me to burn the fat. I ate below 1500 calories at the beginning of the month and that didn't make any difference. It c... Read more

We had a great day today! I spent my time off with two of my favorite people. Hubby and I swam laps. He was going further and further each time he swam. He was a runner. He'd rather not run now to prevent any injury to his back or knees. S... Read more

My husband says it might not be a bad idea for me to chuck the scales out of the window. He says I am obviously losing fat (I say fat, not weight, hence the scale gripe). Also, he says with the way I have been exercising, I will not see the chan... Read more
