Follow-up News on Recent Blogs and The Measure of Today
Virtual Journey Update: 63 miles from Eureka. Today being a school night is usually a day when I get over 12K steps, but I woke up feeling really sore from yesterday's walking. I decided to take it easy today. I still walked and was on my fe... Read more
15K, Reviewing, Loving My Community
Virtual Journey Update: Over the past 3 days, I've logged in something over 8 miles, so I am now 67 miles away from Eureka. So much has been going on, I've forgotten to keep up....
Today was no exception. I was on my feet all day, off an... Read more
Take Every Chance to Share Love and Kindness (RIP Charlotte)
Thank you, everyone, for your wonderful support on yesterday's blog. I still ache for the young woman who left SP under such lonely circumstances. I know I was right to say something, and I would feel that way even without the support that I r... Read more
Stop! Think! (I'm Just Saying...!)
I just have to say this to get it off my still-ample chest.
I saw a note this morning that a SparkFriend is leaving the site in response to some really hateful comments and personal attacks for something personal that she shared in her blog. ... Read more
I am not proud today. It was an unintentionally blown day. I had a list of things to do, including exercise, and none of those things happened. I am tired, mentally, physically, emotionally. The reserves are gone and I am not sure the Spark ... Read more
Taking Care of Me - Sort Of
Virtual Journey Update: just over a mile today, so 75 miles to Eureka.
Today was one of those dragged-out, I don't feel like moving days. I am learning that, when I feel like that, my body needs rest. I really do pay attention, this is ... Read more
Midterm, Overtime and Not Enough Exercise
Virtual journey update: 2.5 miles means I'm only 76 miles from Eureka. I did not walk a lot, but I got something over 7000 steps. I was a little bit sore from yesterday's 14K steps, but not as sore as I would have been a few weeks ago!
I... Read more
What a Great Day!
Virtual journey first: Down to 78.5 miles to Eureka! I walked 14029 steps and that was 4.6 miles.
I stayed within range for food in most respects. Low in fat (really?) and low in calcium....Balance is still not there.
The day at work... Read more
Less Than 10K and I Don't Want to Do More!
I got in 8458 steps today, short of my 10K. Little aches with my weaker leg and a big ache in my hand. I know the hand does not impact walking, but the pain is such that I choose not! I suspect it's arthritis or some other inflamation. It's t... Read more
Syttende Mai and Body Barometer
Who needs a weather report when the body tells you?! I knew the rain was coming without having to consult an expert! My left index finger hurts as if all the arthritis in the world is in the joints! I felt very stiff all day.
But, really, I... Read more
A Day of Rest and Blessing Continue!
Ever since my 135 seconds on the elliptical last week, my weaker leg has been pretty sore. I have kept walking but not much else. I have been very stiff in the morning. Today, I decided it would be a true day of rest and, other than shopping,... Read more
Stolen Bicycle Returned!
Today was a day of blessing. This was not because of anything to do with my SparkPeople journey. As far as the journey goes, a mixed bag. I had a walk, got in the water and ate within range, but did not eat in balance. It was all protein and... Read more
Pitfall: MoGo BBQ
All week long, I'd been hearing about the MoGo BBQ truck that was coming to work today - sort of a Korean twist on Mexican food. I don't know why, but I never thought to calculate the food. I made what I thought was a lower calorie choice, but... Read more
Elliptical Silliness, CSR, Food, Work and Water
Today was a much better day, not for any one thing, but for all of it. The morning flew by because I was dealing with tax exempt certificates. A simple task but time intensive.
Avoiding stairs is paying off. I had a couple of walks toda... Read more
I Think I Really Screwed Up
I knocked a little off my calorie range yesterday because I don't think I am exercising enough to lose tonnage and I just can't do more right now. I had not forgotten that I had increased the range a few weeks ago because I was beyond tired thr... Read more
