SPY 2; Day 12: Progress Today
Wednesday, February 09, 2011      3 comments

Making Progress – What Does That Mean Today? I ate within range in all respects save being low in calcium. (I was high in calcium earlier in the week, so, on balance, that’s probably ok.) Exercise is a mixed bag, but it’s better than yester... Read more
SPY 2; Day 11 - A Step or More Backwards
Wednesday, February 09, 2011      3 comments

I ended up eating way over today. I don't care. That's not true. I DO care, I just don't have the energy to deal with it. I am so, so, so, so tired. When I get this tired, I look to food to give me energy. Lately, that has not worked. Ne... Read more
SPY 2, Day 10: Progress
Monday, February 07, 2011      5 comments

I have not updated my stats on SP, but I stepped on the scale this morning and discovered I am back to the weight Iwas before this year started. It is today's number and I am disappointed, but I am not upset. It's just a snapshot. Today's... Read more
SPY 2, Day 9: I Gave Up Today
Monday, February 07, 2011      9 comments

I lost it this morning. I got very upset at BF over really stupid stuff and money. I was in tears. I can't even articulate the depth of my despair. I ate a good breakfast but lunch was chips and dip and.......it was the Super Bowl. ... Read more
SPY 2, Day 8: "This is not me" But it is Today's Reality
Saturday, February 05, 2011      4 comments

One of my SparkFriends replied to last night's blog that I may still be dealing with the after effects of that horrible cold because my energy is just not back. I have been eating well, sleeping well, exercising some, taking vitamins and keepin... Read more
SPY 2; Day 8: Mental Health Day, Sort Of
Friday, February 04, 2011      7 comments

Those of you who've followed my blogs know that this year has started roughly. Most of January was consumed by the cold that was more than a cold. That was followed by the organizational changes and the very strong hint that my job is less tha... Read more
SPY 2, Day 7: Tired, Overwhelmed, Drastic
Friday, February 04, 2011      4 comments

Perhaps 54 minutes a day is beyond me. I missed it yesterday by 14, today by 12. Perhaps I should have set a lower monthly fitness minute goal. I have walked and not much else. I am tired. Mentally, physically (not sleepy) and emotion... Read more
SPY 2 Day 6: I Need an Emotions OFF Switch!
Wednesday, February 02, 2011      6 comments

It's probably hormonal, but today I was very emotional. I was ok, for the most part, until the Toastmaster meeting. I was the grammarian/ah counter, which is my favorite role. I am known for my listening skills and for having very detailed re... Read more
SPY 2, Day 5: I Met My Daily Fitness Minutes Goal
Tuesday, February 01, 2011      9 comments

February first. I have not been as happy to see a month end as I was this January. It was a very tough month on many levels. I did not make my fitness goal last month, so I just set the same goal for this month. THEN I remembered that Februa... Read more
SPY 2, Day 4: Destiny's Music
Monday, January 31, 2011      8 comments

The speech I delivered today: She Who Sings Prays Twice Today, I invite you to step into my imaginary time machine for a short trip back to the early 1970s. We are all teenagers for this journey and we are going to Albuquerque, New Mexic... Read more
SPY 2, Day 3
Sunday, January 30, 2011      6 comments

As I said in one of my posts on a team message board, I am having my own energy crisis today. I did not move any more than I had to and even took a nap in the afternoon. Part of this is probably exercise avoidance but part of it is a coming do... Read more
SPY2 Day 2: New Food
Saturday, January 29, 2011      3 comments

The energy drain continues. I ran errands today and that meant some walking and steps, but 30 minutes and 6K is not enough now. It's more than I did a year ago today (zero). I might have overdone it with the ST this past week because my intac... Read more
SPY 2, Day 1: A Stressful Day Caps A Stressful Week
Saturday, January 29, 2011      3 comments

Day one of my 2nd year on SP was stressful and exhausting. But, to put it in context, I have to recap the week. The widow of our founder died early in the week. Then a senior scientist died while on vacation in Hawaii. I had done some ... Read more
My First SparkVersary (Today!)
Friday, January 28, 2011      14 comments

When I started on SparkPeople a year ago today, a year seemed an impossibly long time. Then, I was so overwhelmed by the richness of the site that I did not even log in every day, let alone earn every possible point and sponge in every fact I c... Read more
Rest in Peace, Chuck and Other Musings on the Day
Thursday, January 27, 2011      7 comments

On the heels of yesterday's news about the death of our founder's widow, I came in to work today to find an email announcing that one of our longtime scientists died Saturday while on vacation in Hawaii. I could not get it out of my mind. It's... Read more
