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

It's Becoming Routine!

Tuesday, January 25, 2011      3 comments

Not much to say tonight, which is kind of odd. What did I do today? I walked for 53 minutes which included a different walk at lunch time. I walked a different direction so, while it was not quite as long as yesterday's walk, I felt the ... Read more

Zero Plus One

Sunday, January 23, 2011      4 comments

A migraine threatened all day. Again, I did nothing productive. I am a bit down. I am tired of tracking food, of exercising, of the journey. I hope the mood passes very soon. I gave in and ate way over today. I am not particularly depresse... Read more

Zero

Saturday, January 22, 2011      6 comments

I did not sleep much at all last night and spent today dealing with really weird back spasms and a headache that is threatening to become a migraine. No walk or other exercise. Still within range for food, but I am also fighting the ur... Read more

Doughnuts & Pizza and Tidbits of Thought

Friday, January 21, 2011      6 comments

She brought doughnuts again today. I have skipped so many doughnuts, so many candies, dip and chips and all the holiday goodies. I am not a saint and this is also not a statement of deprivation. I did not feel well today and it was the kind o... Read more
