I don't like Saturdays

Saturday, September 01, 2012      8 comments

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

Friday, August 31, 2012      12 comments

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

Fifteen Cheerios

Thursday, August 30, 2012      16 comments

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

Leading horses

Wednesday, August 29, 2012      12 comments

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!

Tuesday, August 28, 2012      9 comments

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

Trainer personalities

Monday, August 27, 2012      11 comments

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?

Sunday, August 26, 2012      14 comments

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." Seriously. I will... Read more

Just a quickie tonight

Saturday, August 25, 2012      9 comments

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

Friday, August 24, 2012      9 comments

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.

Thursday, August 23, 2012      12 comments

Soo. It's time to get my daughter evaluated for the dreaded A word. ADHD. 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

Wednesday, August 22, 2012      7 comments

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

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      10 comments

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

Monday, August 20, 2012      12 comments

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

Sunday, August 19, 2012      13 comments

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

Saturday, August 18, 2012      8 comments

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
