An update on the exercise problem and another team challenge!
I picked up an issue of a yoga magazine yesterday. It has a 9-pose workout that I can do at home, without any equipment. I tried it last night, and while I'm nowhere near flexible enough to do all the poses exactly the same as in the pictures, i... Read more
I got a comment on my SparkPage today, from a teammate. She encouraged me to try to get in some exercise - at least ten minutes. I'm going to attempt to do that today.
It's difficult to force myself to exercise. I like doing it, and I like ... Read more

Sunday: 24... Read more
So I'm moving at the end of March. My boyfriend got a job in Saskatoon, and his first day is February 27. So he's going out next weekend to look for a place. I'm staying behind to pack. Three rooms per week, and then a week at the end to get rid... Read more
Weekly Plan, February 15-21, 2009
The May Grad Team is having a four-week challenge, starting on February 15. I've signed up, and since we've already been told what week one's challenge is going to be, I thought it would make sense to make a plan for the week.

So I have plans for my year. The biggest part is to focus on them. They're really not all that huge, when it comes right down to it. I figure, simple is better - I stand more of a chance of success if things are simple.
