SPY 2; Day 46: Japan and New Job/New Boss(?)
Friday, March 18, 2011      5 comments

My brother and nephew flew back to Japan today. My heart goes with them. I am distressed at the misinformation that is out there about the nuclear situation. It is serious, but it is not quite what is being said. Moreover, the flurry over th... Read more

My VP gave me support to start a fundraiser for humanitarian aid to Japan! Probably will do a potluck with a voluntary cash donation. I was floored! He also called to find out about my brother and his family in Japan. Several people came to me... Read more

First day back from New Mexico. I was sick the whole trip with this sinus infection and had no voice. It was fabulous seeing my family! Three generations together for the first time and Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday. We had a lot for which ... Read more
SPY 2; Day 39: Evening Before Travel
Thursday, March 10, 2011      10 comments

The sinus infection has not gotten better, so flying should be just tons of fun tomorrow. I plan to load up on decongestants and chewing gum. I am too drug sensitive to do much else. Otherwise, I would likely end up missing a flight and screw... Read more
SPY 2; Day 38: Sinus Infection or Cold?
Tuesday, March 08, 2011      5 comments

36 minutes walking, 10 or more glasses of water, 7800+ steps. I am well under on food. No real appetite. Going to bed early but I doubt I'll sleep much. I am so congested it's hard to breathe. It was hard to think at work and I am sure my b... Read more
SPY 2; Day 37
Monday, March 07, 2011      2 comments

55 minutes walking, though not at once and a snort Kettlebell workout tonight. Water? Check. Food - within range on most things, low in others. The cold seems to have taken away my appetite, a temporary state. TOM appeared this morni... Read more
SPY 2; Day 36: Laundry Day, Spark Absence (Head's Up!)
Sunday, March 06, 2011      6 comments

I'm still fighting the cold so I did not do much exercise today. BF usually does laundry during the week here in the park, but he has been sick. So today was a day to load up the car and drive to the laundromat and spend hours there. At least... Read more
SPY 2; Day 35: I WILL Miss a Few Days on SP!
Saturday, March 05, 2011      4 comments

Amazingly, my boss replied to my email today and I've booked my flight! It cost almost $200 more than it would have if I'd been able to book last night, but less than it would had he not seen my query until Monday. I will be flying to Albuq... Read more
SPY 2; Day 34: I May Miss a Few Days on SP
Saturday, March 05, 2011      4 comments

Not a productive day, but at least I did not overeat! Victory! Late this evening, my brother called from Japan to say he is going to be in Albuquerque with my nephew. My sister is bringing her children, so it will be a mini family reunion.... Read more
SPY 2; Day 33: A Slightly Better Day
Thursday, March 03, 2011      3 comments

I ate above range today and that was just thoughtless. I had a salad at the cafe with the lady they hired for the paralegal position that I wanted. It was a great salad, but I threw in too many sunflower seeds. Just did not think. My thr... Read more
SPY 2; Day 32: I Feel Like Chowing Down, But I'm Not Going To!
Wednesday, March 02, 2011      7 comments

A very light exercise day. I skipped the Toastmaster meeting because I woke up with a sore throat that got worse as the day progressed. I thought being in a small conference room would be unfair to everyone else. Instead, I walked at lunch, n... Read more
SPY 2; Day 31: Blues and Kettlebells
Tuesday, March 01, 2011      3 comments

I was amazed that my Amazon order came today! As soon as I came home, I walked to the office to pay the rent, splurged on a lottery ticket (it's $88M) and then came home to lo... Read more
SPY 2; Day 29: One Kettlebell DVD Found!
Sunday, February 27, 2011      4 comments

Kettlebell purists are probably cringing. I found a DVD today at Target and it was the only one there! AND it was only $9.00 I went to a surplus store and did not find a... Read more
SPY 2; Day 28: Kettlebell DVD Hunt Continues (A Good Day!)
Saturday, February 26, 2011      5 comments

I started the day with a little strength training. I used my kettlebells and was discouraged that some of the exercises seemed really tough. Then, I realized I was using the 10 pound weight instead of the 5 pound one. No wonder! Yet, WOOHOO! ... Read more
SPY 2; Day 27: I Feel as if I am Chasing Mercury
Friday, February 25, 2011      7 comments

I feel as if my role in life right now is trying to corral mercury from a shattered thermometer. Of course, you're not supposed to touch mercury, but I remember from science class that it is really hard to round up! I've blogged ad nauseum... Read more
