I Didn't Blog Yesterday
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      9 comments

I had nothing to say, profound or otherwise, so I skipped blogging, knowing I was leaving points on the table. I did not feel wonderful, not bad, just not good. I ended up eating a lot of carbos- that's the only thing that helps when my st... Read more

Thank you, Spark Friends, for your encouragement! Today was more on target than yesterday... I got a short walk in today. I am SORE from it, but it was ok. I was at a large open shopping center. I walked all over instead of driving. At ... Read more
Didn't Move, Didn't Eat Today But I am OK

I did not exercise a whit today. I just didn't feel like it. I also did not eat much. I felt really hungry early in the day, but did not give in. I am ending the day without eating more than about 600 calories. I feel fine, just not lik... Read more
Charlotte, Average Day and Jury Duty Thoughts
Saturday, May 29, 2010      5 comments

I have to figure out how to better cope with loss. I am still really rattled by Charlotte's sudden death last week, even though I hardly knew her. I have trouble sleeping and I wake up finding myself thinking about the needless death and the p... Read more

Virtual journey update: 60.3 miles from Eureka. I did not walk a lot today (just over 8K steps), but this is a good thing. I have been able to walk every day this week! Sure I have been sore and stiff, but neither was a deal breaker. This is ... Read more

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)
Tuesday, May 25, 2010      8 comments

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...!)
Sunday, May 23, 2010      17 comments

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
Burnt Out
Sunday, May 23, 2010      9 comments

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

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!
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      4 comments

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
