Awards, Spreading the Spark and Loving the SP Community
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      5 comments

I received several SP trophies today. The 15 pounder and the 3 month Sparkversary are ones I added. I had not really thought about logging on every day, accumulating pints and was stunned to see I'd racked up 1000 minutes! ME! I had so many sl... Read more
Who Says "Diet" Food Can't Be Yummy?
Sunday, May 02, 2010      6 comments

I have been so tired today, just a slug. My plan of a long walk did not happen and neither did much else. My shoulder pain spread to most of my back and hurt all day. Now, nearly lights out, it feels a bit better. I'm frustrated that every t... Read more
45 Seconds, Rubber Legs and Sparking at the Grocery Store
Sunday, May 02, 2010      6 comments

Today started with such great intentions. I was going to go to work so I could study for my midterm in peace, then go to the little gym at work and work with weights. Then I was going to come home, grab BF and run errands, thus clearing the de... Read more
I Beat the Elevator and Other Friday Evening Musings
Saturday, May 01, 2010      7 comments

A good night's sleep did make a difference! I clicked off over 11300 steps today. I made sure I ate something every 2-3 hours and did not feel abnormally tired. I ended the day within nutrition range except for being low in calcium and ach... Read more

Thank you, SparkFriends, for your comments on yesterday's blog. Today was one of those days just full of irritations, nothing went smoothly and I was not in a good mood. Not much energy. Feeling overwhelmed in so many ways. I skipped t... Read more
Steps and Swirling Thoughts
Thursday, April 29, 2010      6 comments

I made sure I grabbed my pedometer on my way out the door today. Three short walks and lots of walking around at work and I made it to 11,090. Sixty minutes of moderate walking for 3.6 miles. I'm still having trouble keeping the energy up... Read more
Forgot My Pedometer!
Tuesday, April 27, 2010      8 comments

I was driving to work when I realized I had forgotten to pick up my pedometer for the day - first day I've done that since I got it. I almost turned around but decided to accept the challenge and see what I could do solo. I can only guess ... Read more
What an Odd Day!
Monday, April 26, 2010      7 comments

Obviously, 10K steps every day is too much for me. Scaling back. I will aim for 7K and be happy with 5K on my less active days. I expect there will be several days a week when I hit 10K or come very close. But I will work towards 10K a day. ... Read more
A First! (I may pay for this tomorrow!)
Sunday, April 25, 2010      10 comments

Thanks to all who commented on yesterday's blog! I am not sure if I lost even an ounce or stayed the same as last week. Either way, the fact that I did not gain is a real win! Today was a much different day! This morning, I saw a blog f... Read more
TOM Costs a Day
Sunday, April 25, 2010      8 comments

Absolutely no energy today despite intentions and lovely weather. Mr. Scale is not likely to be charitable tomorrow morning and neither will his partner, Ms. Tape-Measure. Just her name alone gives her airs beyond her station. Whatever th... Read more
It's All Words (Continued...) {Yes, 2 blogs in 1 day for my SparkFriends}
Friday, April 23, 2010      5 comments

I won! I won! I won! No, not the lottery, not a tangible prize. What I won was the day. I felt like a slug all day. Turns out TOM is here (whew, the suspense is over) and it's as if I've timewarped back to early teen years when TOM first visi... Read more
It's All Words (Blogging This Early is Not a Good Sign!)
Friday, April 23, 2010      7 comments

Out of curiosity, I stepped on the scale this morning. Big mistake! I am up either a pound or up 7/10ths from last Sunday. I do not feel heavier, in fact, I feel lighter. I can also see more definition in my arms and legs, feel slightly less ... Read more
"The Nickel Dropped"
Thursday, April 22, 2010      6 comments

Thanks to my SparkFriends with their consistent advice, support and encouragement, I am starting to understand...I woke up stiff and a bit sore from yesterday's walking nearly 12K steps. Up until this week, I would have pushed myself to go up t... Read more
Wall Ups and Hip Flexors Everywhere!
Wednesday, April 21, 2010      8 comments

Today started out in the same sluggish manner that the last few have. I did not feel like going to work or anything else. But...I did. Driving to work, I told myself that I would be able to get the 10K steps today because I would have class t... Read more
Taking Good Advice
Tuesday, April 20, 2010      7 comments

Thank you, SparkFriends, for your feedback on yesterday's blog. I am realizing that I may not be able to meet the cardio requirements every day. My body seems to need more time to rest than I want to give it. In the past, that was enough for ... Read more
