I greatly enjoyed the Spring trail run that kicked my butt on Saturday (it was HAAAAARD!) though I did not enjoy the fact that I underdressed for it (shorts instead of tights, light jacket instead of warm jacket, no gloves, light buff...ugh). T... Read more
Oy, it's been a while. And I can tell - I'm working too hard, and too easily am slipping into old "whatever; I'm busy!" habits.
I know when I'm feeling sorry for myself for being stressed and working 12+ hour days, it's easy for me to fall... Read more
So, I've been thinking about the bike commute. I cleaned up the old granny bike this weekend and decided to ride her in today - it was great, and everything went smoothly. And I was thinking about how much of that is due to good planning and som... Read more
Heading out to another conference today (first one of the new year - yay?)
* Eat well, meaning healthy foods, and not too much of them. This will be a lot of restaurant food, so I'm going to try my trick of cobbling toget... Read more
So, I'm feeling grumbly and out of sorts. I'm catching the hubs' cold though we've both been trying to avoid that, and I am (we are) cranky. I am also annoyed that I haven't been maintaining my plateau as I'd hoped to do. (I hit my arbitrarily c... Read more
This article ( www.weightymatters.ca/20 14/12/do-you-know-how-to-f eed-your-children.html ) by my favorite evidence-based diet doc got me thinking about how I learned to eat as a kiddo.
Of course, I'm forward-thinkin... Read more
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
...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
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
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
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
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
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
