I can't even list all the things I'm doing - fielding email, spending more time in meetings than at my desk, travel, overseeing several guests' itineraries, and managing to live my life outside of work, too. I'm so glad we don't "do" the commerc... Read more
Just an observation...
...I really dislike the 'sponsored' blog content and articles on this site. Like advertorials in print media, the practice seems deceptive, and I distrust the message. Particularly when the content purports to be objective, then points readers t... Read more
The Running Conversation, Part 2
As the seasons change, am I prepared to run in the cold?
- I don't have to run outside; I can run on the treadmill if it's too cold. Or, with the bike on the trainer, I can ride my bike.
- Both the bike and the treadmill... Read more
The "Running" Conversation, Part 1
I haven't been running much lately.
- I should go for a run. It's not that hard. Get up, get dressed, go out and do it. I should.
I don't feel much like running. It's cold.
- I have running tights, and a thermal, windblocking jack... Read more
Ever since my niece did a "trapeze school" session while working on a "Fat No Mo Sho" episode, I've been curious about trying it. I've been running regularly and feeling fi... Read more
Gee, Now That I Think of It...
Yeah, it's been a while (insert standard "I should blog more" apologia).
Nevertheless, I'm still on track - figuring out how to maintain my weightloss and exercise habits even though I'm busier than I've ever been (and I feel a little anxio... Read more
Well, that Summer flew by...
I find myself looking at the calendar and wondering where the time went. I'm happy to say that I quite enjoyed the season - camping, hiking, biking, running, walking at the dog park, lounging in the hammock. Not quite enough gardening to keep th... Read more
Yes, I've been ruminating about Fall and Winter. Not just because the semester is around the corner (less than a month 'til school starts! YIKES!) but because I know I'm going to hit my annual "low weight" soon. What else to expect after a summe... Read more
Balancing the Running with the Biking...where's my sweet spot?
Unlike some of my more inspired Sparky friends (you know who you are) who have the amazing notion that someone can run, then bike (and then SWIM!) in one go of it, I'm still at a stage where I'm trying to figure out if I can run on Sunday, bike ... Read more
Quiet here, but busy!
[chuckling to myself - how many of us Sparkbloggers have the classic, "it's been a while since I've blogged" post? Everyone, I bet!]
It has been a while since I've blogged - I've been busy, dealing with home improvement projects and work an... Read more
Feeling particularly pleased with the past week, since so much of my hopes and wishes for good health and a fit life are realized when I can see if I can do things I never... Read more
Manage the Lapse
A few years back, I read a good book on weight loss that countered the mythology that people who lose weight are doomed to gain it all back – always. Thin for Life: 10 Keys to Success from People Who Have Lost Weight and Kept It Off , by Anne M.... Read more
So, I'm looking over the pattern of my Spark behavior and reflecting on what has worked.
It's clear that I've been more successful losing weight and exercising regularly in the year I've been in this space, doing this work. (Hey! Happy Anni... Read more
More Trail Running
I have a friend who likes to run on trails (as, I've learned, I also like to do), and she has organized a regular group of folks who meet up at a location where there are lots of trails and we can all run together or split off so we can run at o... Read more
Only Telling You This Because We're Friends...
For the first time in my life, I am working out frequently enough, and HARD enough, that stinky laundry is an issue.
I have a plan: airy hamper for the workout clothes, dose things with febreze between washings, plan to d... Read more
