There has got to be Less Sitting Around Around Here
No sedentary is not my middle name. Maybe just a nickname.
I am not a person who likes to exercise just for exercise sake. I do like walking, but most other activities have to be purpose driven. Mowing the lawn. Chopping wood. Shoveling sn... Read more
Friday Wrap up
My work weeks are usually completely different from my weekends, especially where food is concerned, so I might try to get into the habit of reviewing each separately - the work week on Fridays and the weekend, or week as a whole, on Sunday or M... Read more
I got together with some friends last night for supper. We went to a restaurant that I have never been to before, but one of their specialties was rotisserie roasted chicken.
I order a 1/4 chicken, with potatoes and a side salad. The salad ... Read more
Staying the Same
This is kind of my first official week back on Spark. I was able to track my food all week. I was able to exercise several times during the week, either by walking on the treadmill or doing physical labor. And I logged it. I read blogs, articles... Read more
This has been a long week, and a trying one, emotionally. Some legal type things happened which made my insides coil up into a bundle of nerves. And that happened just after a day of being ill, which could also have been stress related.

I have managed to stay on track with calories for the past three days. Today is day four.
A couple days were easy. Yesterday was a little more difficult, because later in the evening, after supper, I was so tired, all I wanted to do was si... Read more
The Plan for Today
The original plan for today was to do yardwork until lunchtime, and then work in the house the rest of the day.
However, yesterday I was very ill with what was probably a bout of irritable bowel syndrome, which I haven't had for some time.... Read more
Hump day already...
We are having a two day reprieve from the heat and humidity. This morning I opened every window in the house before I left for work - I hope the cats are enjoying that!
My plan of cleaning the basement over the weekend never materialized. T... Read more
July 8 Update
Catchy title, eh?
The temps here have come down, but the humidity still seems high, so I get soaked and sweaty when I do any work outside. Not my favorite feeling!
This weekend our town has a festival going on, and it's just not my id... Read more
Best Laid Plans
Well, the new Nike Shoes came, and were promptly returned. Unfortunately, Nike only has a medium width shoe. I do not have wide feet, usually, but in these shoes, everything felt clamped down, and there was no wiggle room. I couldn't get a size ... Read more
Maybe a new start?
I ordered some new shoes today. Nike Free XT, plus the sport band that goes with. As a person who likes to pay $10 for a pair of sneakers, I'm hoping that this financial commitment to fitness turns into a real live actual fitness routine.
I... Read more
Well, that wasn't Good
So after getting back into this yesterday, and even writing stuff down, I had a huge fail last night.
Workdays are usually no trouble for me, because I have a small breakfast, and pack my lunch and snacks, and the day has that structure th... Read more
Maybe blogging will help
Thinking about my weight, and what to do about it is constantly in my thoughts. It is, right up until I open my mouth and eat something rich and delicious and laden with calories. right about then, my brain shuts off. It's not until afterward th... Read more
A Quiet Sunday - Random Thoughts.
Work and home have been very busy lately, but I'm starting to be able to breathe again. I've been failing at staying within my calorie range, but at least I'm trying to eat healthy things.
One success - I haven't bought potato chips since ... Read more
September is a difficult month at work. This year, because of the extra work I am doing for another field station, it's worse than usual. I am constantly behind.
There's a lot going on at home too, so I'm just sort of pushing through, tryi... Read more
