SPY 2, Day 123: It Could Have Been Me and May Still Be
One of my sparkfriends blogged today that she is leaving Sparkpeople because she has been eating right and exercising for months without seeing a change in the scale. Icertainly understand the feeling, not that I can make that claim. Another f... Read more
SPY 2, Day 120: I'm Making Progress
My huddle today for several teams was "I'm making progress". Unlike previous times I've chosen that one, today was not for exercise. Today was for handling stress in a different way. I did not eat mindlessly, I did not do any sabotage-creatin... Read more
SPY 2, Day 119: What's Wrong With Me?
I am completely snowed under at work, to the point that I feel paralyzed and unable to accomplish anything! I started the day on the wrong foot by not having coffee and feeling as if looked scruffy.
Today's Toastmaster meeting was one of th... Read more
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
