Streak day # 4- No more Criminal Minds while hubby is gone. biggest loser is safer in the dark
so, watching criminal minds while hubby is working is never a good idea. sooner or later the house makes a creak or the cats knock something over, and i am up. i love the show, and i normally love scary things. but..sometimes it is just a little... Read more
Good puppy news, and still on my streak day #3
Once again, just a quick update. Maxie had her appointment today for follow up. She has lost 7 lbs all together since her visit in August-the vet was very proud of us. As she is not thrilled about her fish oil-we got her cans of the science diet... Read more
Back on My streak-day #2
curling up to go to bed- but thought I would update. i woke up late, but hit the road for a 3 mile walk. i tracked all of my food, and got all of my water. i have a nice yet simple reward planned out for me if i am able to keep it going.

2 Blogs in one day (well, sort of)...thunderstorming
Well, what a night. I can walk in a little rain- I don't really melt. however, the lightening was going crazy. So, to do a little shout out, I took a page from Simplelife4real. I got my pedometer, and walked around and around, back and forth in ... Read more
Ugh-broke my streak on walking, time to re-group again
Ugh- I am really lousy at keeping my streaks going. I managed 4 days, and again I lost it. this time, I was helping my parents out-and it just ate up all my time. i did a few short puppy walks, but nothing of enough substance to count (wish i ha... Read more
the dreaded puppy cone
well, the last two days have been a little rough. we tried yesterday to just put her antibiotic ointment on-but she would lick and chew if she was out of our sight. So-now she is coned when she we can't watch her. it makes her miserable, but it ... Read more
A weekend full of work and puppy problems
This weekend was actually more challenging than most. I ended up working a 12 hour shift on Sat. It wasn't bad, just busy. I was on my feet all day running-which isn't exactly a calming way to spend a day. By the time I actually got home- I was... Read more
weekends un-did me-again :(
I have to say-weekends are my down fall. If I manage to negate otherwise normal every day stressors-something about the weekend always breaks my will. It is always reliably one of two things- DH convincing me I deserve a snack, or my mom not wan... Read more
today wasn't as bad as I thought...
well, today was not too bad. I weighed in, and stayed the same. so-no change is a small victory. I am hopefully going to do better over the next week as stress and cheating ability should be at an all time low. at least- I hope ;)
I managed... Read more
Starting to have doubts... my weigh in, my half
My half is on 10/2. It is almost September-and I am just beginning to feel very unsure if I can pull it off. I have done a half before, and did fair in it. i just haven't been able to dedicate as much time training as I had in the past. I have t... Read more
Making progress-myself and my pup
Today was one of those days that didn't feel like it would be productive. The day at work dragged on forever. On top of that, I had a headache all day from random stressors. Despite boredom and stress, I managed to eat well while at work, and dr... Read more
Training for a half, week 3, day #2. Feeling better, and good puppy news
The week is starting off fairly well. I was able to get 3 miles in at lunch-though it was more of a power walk than a walk jog- I am definitely going to prepare for Wed and bring workout gear. Then, I was able to get a little post run yoga in, w... Read more
Training for the half-week 2, day number 3- still sore.
Getting back into shape is not any where as easy as I had hoped. It was hot, but I went out there and did a short jog. it was a lot slower than i normally go, but at least i got the full 3 miles (and a little plus) in. tomorrow is cross training... Read more
Back on Spark for the first time in months. Training for my half- Week 2, day number 3
I have been off SP for months-so I feel like there is so much to catch up on.
DH did have some health issues over the summer- he is fine now, but knows he has to make some big changes. So, as his wife who also needs to change, we are doin... Read more
Back on track- Day #2, Week #1
Short blog today- Long day at work, and when I got home I tackled the great plains that I call my back yard. So- no walk today, but I still feel like I did get some decent exercise in. And, my lawn looks groomed. I did fairly well today- drank m... Read more
