I don't like Saturdays
I've decided I don't like Saturdays. I guess that means that I'm not a kid anymore, huh? Used to be my favorite day of the week!
For starters, the girls are home from school, which means they're up my butt all day, and bored out of their ... Read more
1 Year Sparkiversary
Okay, so technically I joined Sparkpeople on July 17, 2010. I followed an email from Mypoints to get 10 points for signing up. I poked around, even posted a little, but gradually got bored after a month or so and wandered off to other internet ... Read more
I counted them. 15 cheerios, floating around in my bowl. I spooned them up about five at a time, and dropped them in the trash. Then, I poured the last 1/4 of a cup of mil... Read more
A post today in the Sparkpeople forums started me down this path of thinking, as so many of my blogs often do.
Most, if not all of us, have loved ones who are not hea... Read more
Improving faster than I expected!
So my recovery from sedentarianism has been faster than I had originally anticipated. Yesterday's boot camp left my back a little sore, but nothing major, and I didn't even feel compelled to take an ibuprofen. I wasn't feeling yoga this morning,... Read more
I've had the pleasure of working with a number of trainers through my group classes. Some of those sessions have amounted to personal training sessions, since I was the only one.
I mesh better with certain personalities of trainers. I do... Read more
What's YOUR excuse?
Excuses. We all have them. Come on, even if you're in a great place in your life *now*, you made them in the past.
My most common excuse for not exercising is simply "I'll finish this and go in just a minute."
I will... Read more
Just a quickie tonight
Quick day roundup tonight. I'm pooped!
It's been an incredibly busy day. I've been working overtime at work with the beta test. Husband had a car show with his lodge that he had to take care of. I took the opportunity to bash some order in... Read more
SO unbelievably sore
So yesterday at boot camp, our trainer really put us through the wringer. First, he told us to put 10 lb weights on our barbells. (Most of us do 7 1/2 or smaller, normally. Everyone in there was used to doing more than 5.)
Then we went into... Read more
ADHD: Please, no.
Soo. It's time to get my daughter evaluated for the dreaded A word.
I've been waiting for it, but protests from my husband have really kept me from pushing too hard for it, even though last fall my 6 year old's Kindergarten tea... Read more
Busy day today
I didn't get a workout in today; unfortunately my oldest child threw up in her bed again tonight. This sucked... a LOT. So I had to take her to the doctor instead of going to the gym. Sinus infection. Yay.
Worked a lot. Cooked supper. A ... Read more
A little bit cleaner
So today on SparkCoach, the challenge was to organise your kitchen so that it was easier to be healthy.
Well, that's a tall order for me. As you may know from previous posts, I'm a borderline hoarder... I don't actually hoard, but I'm a to... Read more
In the hotseat
This isn't fitness related, but it is health related, if not my health.
Today was my husband's disability hearing. We've appealed three times, and this is the best chance we've got to make this happen. We were both nervous going in, but m... Read more
Do unto others
Lately, I've discovered something about myself that I *really* don't like. It's a terrible habit, and one I absolutely must stop.
I'm very critical of other people's ... Read more
Quick and easy meal ideas
SparkCoach prompt ahead. :)
I'm actually really terrible at coming up with things that are simple, healthy, and fast. My one thing I do love is my turkey lavash wraps, inspired by the ones they sell at Kroger in the deli. I LOVE those thi... Read more
