Thursday, May 19, 2011      4 comments

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

Wednesday, May 18, 2011      4 comments

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

Tuesday, May 17, 2011      4 comments

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

Tuesday, May 17, 2011      5 comments

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

Sunday, May 15, 2011      8 comments

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

Monday, May 09, 2011      5 comments

Wednesday, April 27, 2011      6 comments

Tuesday, April 12, 2011      5 comments

Monday, April 11, 2011      6 comments

Saturday, April 09, 2011      4 comments

Saturday, April 09, 2011      4 comments
