SPY 2; Day 26: I Failed Today!
Thursday, February 24, 2011      8 comments

I did not feel well this morning. Allergies and a consequential stomach ache. I ate a doughnut and a half in the hopes that the carbs would quell the bad feelings in my stomach. At least that's what I told myself. I did feel better insofar a... Read more
SPY 2; Day 26: BF Says I Have Muscles!
Wednesday, February 23, 2011      4 comments

This will be a shorter blog than usual because I worked late and studied. I have to complete this certification class by the end of March or I will lose my money. At work, I heard my former team talking about doing a small task that I ha... Read more
SPY 2; Day 25: She Who Sings Prays Twice
Wednesday, February 23, 2011      4 comments

Those of you who have followed my blogs know that I recently learned my high school music teacher died late last year. While she taught at my school for "only" 3 years, her impact on my life was so profound that our relationship remained strong... Read more
SPY 2; Day 24: A Day of Fitness and Balance
Monday, February 21, 2011      7 comments

The title of this blog was my attitude for the day. I chose this attitude today. Today was not a day off for me. The company where I work takes few days off during the year, but we get the week between Christmas and New Years without that... Read more
SPY 2; Day 21 A Mundane Day
Friday, February 18, 2011      7 comments

There's not a lot to say tonight. I am within range on most food metrics, over in sodium and under in calcium and fat. It's rare that I am in balance. Not much exercise today. My joints ache with the damp rain. Work is incredibly busy. ... Read more
SPY 2: Day 20: Changing Mindset
Thursday, February 17, 2011      5 comments

This weekend, I learned that I had gained all the weight I lost last month and am back to my end of the year weight. I'm not happy about it, but I am also not berating myself (much) and I am not punishing me. I am less concerned about what the... Read more
SPY 2; Day 19 Kettlebell!
Wednesday, February 16, 2011      7 comments

Today was our Toastmaster club-level International Speech and Table Topics contest. I was the Toastmaster of the Day (emcee). I have not performed that role in a really long time and never for a contest, so I felt pretty rusty! One speech... Read more
SPY 2; Day 18: Review, Lunch with VP and a 10 Pound Kettlebell (I am so blessed!)
Wednesday, February 16, 2011      7 comments

Thanks to all of you who commented on yesterday's blog. The way it works is that the employee is the last to see the review. By the time I saw it, my boss and his boss (my VP) had already finalized it. I start the process by writing my self-a... Read more
SPY 2; Day 17 Tomorrow is Going to Be a Challenge
Monday, February 14, 2011      5 comments

This is shaping up to be a roller coaster week. But before I detail that, emoticon to all of you who commented, se... Read more
SPY 2; Day 16: Six Years Ago Today
Sunday, February 13, 2011      6 comments

As I write this, it is almost 1:00 in the morning. I am rarely up this late/early. I know it's because I am avoiding sleep. Six years ago at this time in the morning, I was in my Dad's hospital room. My brother had just arrived after flying ... Read more
SPY 2, Day 15: Still Sore
Sunday, February 13, 2011      2 comments

I am getting tired of having nothing wonderful to report insofar as exercise is concerned. I hardly moved at all, not from laziness but from pain. I am hungry, but it's the wanting-to-eat hunger, so I am ignoring it. Would that have happe... Read more
SPY 2; Day 14:
Friday, February 11, 2011      2 comments

Not much exercise today. My joints are very sore and I am not sure why. I can hardly move! I had lunch with my former boss and a retired coworker today. The retired coworker is the one who brought me to my present employer and the former... Read more
SPY 2, Day 13: Tears, Rudeness, Victory and Hope
Thursday, February 10, 2011      5 comments

The other day, my CDs arrived. I finally broke the seal and played two of them today. These are CDs of the music I learned from my music teacher decades ago. Of course, back then, they were are LPs! I had not heard these songs (except me sing... Read more
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
