SPY 2; Day 16: Six Years Ago Today
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
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:
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
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
Making Progress Ė 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, thatís probably ok.)
Exercise is a mixed bag, but itís better than yester... Read more
SPY 2; Day 11 - A Step or More Backwards
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
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
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.

SPY 2, Day 8: "This is not me" But it is Today's Reality
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
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
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!
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
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
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
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
