I haven't forgotten about my SP pals -- This is what has been going on.
1) May 2016 - mid-August, 2016, we were embroiled in real estate transactions. Sold our rental an Ashland and purchased a rental in Sacramento. One of those 1031 exch... Read more
1) Drowning in paperwork. Not enough time to breathe. Couldn't break the surface even if I wanted to breathe.
2) Trying to get in more walking because we are going to walk 200 miles in Spain this fall.
3) Stress is screwing with my... Read more

You Never Know What Time It Is If You Have More Than One Watch
Here's the deal with the Garmin -- as compared with the health thingy on my iPhone, it's + 10 - 15%. My husband got me a pedometer like his -- Omron -- and the Garmin is closer to the steps on the Omron -- 14629 vs. 13542. So, that's pretty cl... Read more
So, Bowie got hold of Sparky and chewed on it again. I bought a Garmin vivofit (amazon. way inexpensive), and am trying to figure it out. It was really easy to set up with my computer and phone, and SP recognized it right away, but it doesn't... Read more
I've been totally under water, and thank my Spark Pals for checking in with me. Working 10-12 hpd. The "good news" is that they've been scheduling me short mid shifts at J#2 on Sunday afternoons, so I have most of the weekends for Us. Working... Read more

Work has been crazy. I've been checking in with SP every day, and have been so thankful for my SP friends who are keeping in touch, even when I don't. I'm not losing weight, but I don't think that I'm gaining because my clothes still fit. So,... Read more
Make your plans -- don't play your results
My fitness plans for the week fell flat. On Sunday, my brother was dropping my mom off so we could take her to Sac to see the kids, and he suggested that I check out my mom's hand -- YIKES!!! Her cat had bitten her on Friday, and her hand and ... Read more
I worked late all days this past week except for Monday, when I had to work at J#2, so I didn't accomplish all of my fitness goals. I hopped on the treadmill a couple of times (Sparky thinks that my treadmill walks = cycling...), and did some o... Read more
Fitness Goals for the Week
Monday and Saturday -- Job #2 days -- lots of carrying, bending, stooping, walking. Goal for Monday is 5000 steps. Goal for Saturday (full shift) is 10K steps. If I don't get in all of the steps on Saturday, I'm off work enough to take a walk... Read more
