Home Stretch (Looking forward to the end of the term)

Tuesday, April 28, 2015      1 comments

Only a few more weeks. Only a few more weeks. Only a few more weeks. ^ my mantra these days. We're down to the time of the semester when I can count remaining meetings of my various committees on one hand. Some faculty have... Read more

Spring - really?

Wednesday, April 22, 2015      1 comments

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

Back in the Saddle Again

Monday, April 13, 2015      2 comments

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

Ruminations on the Bike to Work Checklist

Monday, March 16, 2015      1 comments

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

More conference travel...

Wednesday, January 21, 2015      1 comments

Heading out to another conference today (first one of the new year - yay?) Spark goals: * 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

Well lookee there - what I knew, is true...

Friday, December 26, 2014      0 comments

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

Thinking about How I learned to eat, not What...

This article (
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

Ridiculously Busy

Thursday, December 11, 2014      1 comments

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...

Tuesday, November 18, 2014      1 comments

...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

Sunday, November 02, 2014      0 comments

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. BORING! - Both the bike and the treadmill... Read more

The "Running" Conversation, Part 1

Sunday, October 26, 2014      0 comments

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

Just sayin'

Sunday, October 12, 2014      1 comments

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...

Thursday, September 25, 2014      1 comments

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...

Sunday, August 31, 2014      1 comments

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

Planning Ahead

Tuesday, August 05, 2014      1 comments

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
