Where have I been and where am I going?

Monday, September 07, 2015      2 comments

Just noticed my last blog was almost a year and a half ago and I haven’t been active in many of my usual Spark hang outs during much of that time. In that time I have still been checking in and keeping track of things but just not participatin... Read more

100K Points - now what?

Saturday, March 22, 2014      3 comments

OK, I reached 100K points and level 20. Either I've been here too long or I need a life :-). I noticed there is no "X points to next level" note anymore. Now what? Feels a lot like reaching my goal weight and fitness level. I asked myself th... Read more

That doesn't happen very often

Wednesday, February 26, 2014      6 comments

A nice unscheduled workout. Today was packed with 2 classes, several meetings, a seminar and a workshop so I was jut hoping to be able to get to the fitness center before heading home. Instead, we had a gas leak so they evacuated the ent... Read more

Sleep is important

Saturday, February 22, 2014      4 comments

The past 10 days or so have been a bit hectic with multiple deadlines, long meetings, writing and grading exams, preparing a couple talks and a belated report I still haven't written. I also had a couple of days I didn't get to the gym or at le... Read more

Strange day at the fitness center

Tuesday, January 28, 2014      5 comments

I usually don't blog twice in a week but today was such a bazaar day I just had to write about it. Late getting to work and meetings all morning and classes the rest of the day so didn't get to the gym until after six. Got in a good 50 min... Read more

54 + 1 and thoughts on goals

Sunday, January 26, 2014      3 comments

Today was my annual birthday challenge - 54 laps around the indoor track to celebrate 54 years. I added one extra lap to make it an even five miles. Felt great and I added some strength training on top of it. But that’s not the whole purpose o... Read more

4 out of 6!

Wednesday, January 22, 2014      4 comments

I've been trying to blog on Mondays but I'm running a little behind this week and not much to say. However, today I'll throw out a quick Woo Hoo blog. Ran 5 miles this morning which was a good start to the day but that's nto my Woo Hoo moment.... Read more

Getting organized and better prepared?

Monday, January 13, 2014      2 comments

My top goal for 2014 is doing a better job of getting organized and prepared for my classes. We're almost two weeks into the New Year and one week from the start of the semester. So how is it going so far? I am so used to teaching by the seat... Read more

Really? Five years?!?

Monday, January 06, 2014      5 comments

Today is my 5 year Sparkiversary. Hard to believe I've been using SP for 5 years now ... and I am still learning. It's a little embarrassing to have my Sparkiversary right after New Year's because it looks like it started as a part of a resolu... Read more

Goals for 2014

Tuesday, December 31, 2013      4 comments

I already posted these in a discussion in one of my Sparkgroups but I might as well put them out there for a broader audience. I'm not big on New Year resolutions but I don't think of setting goals in quite the same vein. I equate New Year res... Read more

Looking forward

Tuesday, December 24, 2013      2 comments

I'm a day late with my weekly blog because I kept trying to reflect back and it just didn't feel right. I want to concentrate on setting goals and looking forward, not dwelling on the past. Sure, there's lots to learn from the past but it is a... Read more

Negotiating the end of year gauntlet

Monday, December 16, 2013      3 comments

This is a challenging time to get back on track with healthy eating but focusing again on tracking has been a huge help. So far, I've survived 4 holiday parties, 2 graduation receptions and an award reception for a good friend. Despite all the... Read more

So far so good

Wednesday, December 11, 2013      3 comments

Keeping my trackers crossed. It's so easy to track food and fitness here (especially with activity linked to my Fitbit) I can't understand how I end up getting away for long stretches and falling back into old habits. However, no point in dwel... Read more

Here we go again

Monday, December 02, 2013      4 comments

It has been 3 1/2 months since my last blog and things have gone down hill without tracking. I've been back on track for the past week so I think I have finally stemmed the tide. Sometimes I just want to kick myself for letting my bad eating h... Read more

Riding with the wild turkeys

Friday, August 16, 2013      5 comments

The morning weather was perfect so I added a little extra distance to my morning commute to the office. Took a route out of town that I hadn't ridden in over a year. It's a nice quiet country road so almost no traffic. The route is rather hil... Read more
