SPY 2, Day 118: Syttende Mai!
Today is May 17 - Syttende Mai - Constitution Day in Norway. If Dad were alive, he would have worn his USA-Norway flags pin today.
I ate within range until evening. My tendonitis is better today but still very iffy, so I did not dare do... Read more
SY 2, Day 117: Balance
I had a flare-up of my tendonitis, but it is not quite as bad as before. I think it's time to retire the shoes I was wearing. Instead of Kettlebells, I pulled out my balance ball for my first-ever mini workout on that. I have been doing small... Read more
SY 2, Day 116: Taking Charge Over Carbs and the Couch!
One of my SparkFriends had a statement on her home page: No longer food’s b***ch. I winced at the implied word, but I thought I understood the sentiment. Now I know I do. For the past month, I have been inconsistent with exercise and have be... Read more
SPY 2; Day 110: Trophy, Wallflower and Floundering
At the beginning of the month, I got a first - a trophy from SP for trivia! Sometimes, I would see a question I'd never seen before or could not remember the answer for and would back out and return later to see a different question. I still ma... Read more
SP 2; Day 101: Mixed Feelings
This morning, Pope John Paul II was beatified. This evening, President Obama announced that Osama bin Laden was killed by US forces. And today is Law Day, a day that attorneys and others observe. This year, the focus was around the legacy of ... Read more
SP 2; Day 97: Not Sure I Want to Go There...
I have not been tracking my food and I have been eating far too much. I have not yet reconciled to the consequences that I know are due. I am floundering in all areas of my life, exercise, work, drinking water, eating right, making good choice... Read more
SPY 2; Day 72: On Track Until Evening
This afternoon, I felt my energy draining, so I took a break and did something I've never done on a break - I hopped on the elliptical for a few minutes. It did give me the energy to get through the afternoon. On the downside, I was STARVING a... Read more
SPY 2; Day 71: Another Personal Best!
I did not blog last night - started to and realized I had nothing to say.
I heard a great speech at the VA Toastmaster club. This was a second speech and she just bluew me away. She was talking about her job as a recreational therapist at... Read more
SPY 2: Day 69: The Ring Ceremony for World Champion San Francisco Giants
I did a short kettlebell workout this morning. It felt wonderful! Not much exercise otherwise - a lack of energy. The evening concert fell through and I was not disappointed because it let me stay home to watch the televised ring ceremony for ... Read more
SPY 2; Day 68: So Glad it's Friday Evening!
I am tired but not sleepy. This was a tough week. Nonstop busy and too much so. I did get 2 10-minute sessions on the elliptical this week. Not much else for exercise, though I had moderate step counts on my pedometer every day.
The res... Read more
SPY 2; Day 67: I Over Ate and My Legs Burned!
OK, that's a misleading title. I ended up really hungry at dinner and ate too much! Not happy about that and my tummy is unhappy. I also did 10 minutes on the elliptical. It was actually harder than when I did the same on Tuesday. I was abou... Read more
SPY 2; Day 66: A Good Day, But Not an Active One
The day started off on the wrong foot - I started work later than I wanted to. I thought I had a meeting right the second I walked in the door and, waiting for people to arrive or dial in, I missed the chance to go down and get coffee and fruit... Read more
SPY 2; Day 65: A Personal Best!
I got on the elliptical this evening. Last time I did that was weeks ago, maybe even a month a go and my best time was 4 minutes, I think, Tonight I made it to 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am tired this evening, but I feel great! I am exhi... Read more
SPY 2; Day 64: Zero!
Zero cardio today. I was counting what my pedometer said, but I learned that's not cardio. That was hugely deflating because even walking is more than I used to do!
I'm putting in long hours this week and came home late. BF moved my kett... Read more
SPY 2; Day 63: It's Not Like a Light Switch
Resetting is not as easy as I wish it were. I was over on some food metrics, low in others and within range otherwise...
Going to bed early. I tried to rest a lot this weekend as last week was exhausting. This coming week will probably b... Read more
