SPY 2; Day 36: Laundry Day, Spark Absence (Head's Up!)
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!
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
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
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!
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
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!
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!)
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
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
SPY 2; Day 26: I Failed Today!
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!
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
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
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
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
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
