I spent my last morning in Hawaii going for barefoot run/walk intervals at sunrise along the beach. Apparently a few deep thoughts crept in there as well! So yes, as I... Read more

Which has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss or healthy living, just a little factoid we actually got from our guide on our photo tour. He had a friend who worked as a grip on the 4th Pirates movie, which was wrapped here a few mont... Read more
Letting go of the guilt
Thursday, November 11, 2010      8 comments

I try hard to savor my food, and to not feel guilty about what I eat. I know that stress can actually cause weight gain. But sometimes it's hard to let go of the guilt, for eating not so well -- due to circumstances -- even when you know you're ... Read more

DH decided not to take his laptop to his evening session, and I actually have a blog in mind, so here I am. Another beautiful day in paradise. We've gotten very lucky with the weather so far -- apparently there was quite a bit of rain the w... Read more
Are you passionate about life?
Sunday, November 07, 2010      8 comments

DH wanted to lay down a bit, so I get the computer for a while. Unfortunately, there is no wireless here (for free, anyway) and I've discovered while I can read blogs on my Kindle, I can't write them on it. I love to people watch. I love to... Read more

What happens when you let yourself get distracted by life? Well, someti es you drive into the car in front of you. That's what happened to me, anyway. But we all have distractions in our lives, and after my accident (no one was hurt, "mi... Read more

I got to thinking yesterday, about how my buddy Donna will bring our buddy Kate on her runs sometimes, and how our buddy Kate will sometimes bring a whole gaggle of spark buddies on her runs with her. And then it came to me. If I'm struggli... Read more
Everything in moderation, except . . . ???
Thursday, November 04, 2010      8 comments

Yesterday's blog got some people thinking, which is always a good thing. I got a lot of responses along the lines of "you can have everything in moderation." It's something I've often said myself. And I still do believe that. However, ... Read more

Did anyone see the Oprah with Portia de Rossi? It really got me thinking. She discussed her anorexia and bulimia. She talked about how it was a very slippery slope into madness, basically, that started out with just the wish to be professional (... Read more
Are you boxed in?

I had other plans for the blog today, but I guess they'll have to wait. How's that for a tease? Anyway, this month is going to be very challenging for me. First, 10 days in paradise. I know, I know, poor, poor me -- but it IS a challenge. ... Read more
Music is a great motivator

I think we all probably know this, but good things bear repeating! I bought myself a waterproof MP3 player -- it's actually just ok. Rather tinny, works great as long as you don't actually put your head in the water -- then it's in & out. ... Read more
The spark can ignite a flame
Sunday, October 31, 2010      9 comments

Not too long ago I wrote a blog entitled "the reluctant runner". In some ways, not much has changed. I really admire my spark buddies who looooove running. The ones who feel like they could go on forever -- and do! Who go from non-runner to... Read more
Numbers are weird (some NSVs)
Saturday, October 30, 2010      6 comments

So after a great weight loss last week, I had a small gain this week. I'd like to say the number doesn't effect me -- in fact, I don't know the number, they just told what I'd gained -- it does. There was very small binge. Minute. As in some fla... Read more

What's the highlight of your day?

I was out walking the dogs one afternoon, and the mailman was coming around. And as soon as he left a house, someone would pop right out and get that mail. Someone elderly and retired, that is. We have a fair amount of retired folk in our neighb... Read more
