Obstacle course

That's what my life has been the last few weeks! First travel, then a really dreadful chest virus that had me coughing up a lung when I did more than climb up the stairs, now a UTI. I'm kind of frustrated with the piling on. But I'm still watchi... Read more

Embracing the dark of the year

Friday, November 11, 2011      4 comments

The last couple days have not been good ones for me, and I think I need a change in attitude. As we move toward Yule, it's easy to fall into the pattern of wanting to hibernate and then being mad at myself for being "lazy." I'm going to try a ne... Read more

I am NOT working out today!!!

Tuesday, November 08, 2011      7 comments

That's what I told myself when I woke up. Nope, not working out. I slept badly and I'm tired and sore. That's what I told myself as I pulled on my workout clothes. No way am I working out. I'm still getting over my chest cold and I need mor... Read more

Well, there's your problem!

Turns out that a good deal of my sad mood was because I was coming down with a terrible chest cold that's had me hacking up a lung all week. I am getting a little better, but walking up and down the stairs more than once has me coughing hard ag... Read more

I would like to be writing a glowing post-con report about how much fun I had at World Fantasy (and I did), but for some reason today I am feeling like simply crying incessantly or crawling back into bed. This is not the start of November I was ... Read more

Vacation day one

Friday, October 28, 2011      2 comments

6am flight, with no time to eat, no time at airport, essentially 8 hours of travel time, on top of a night's sleep, without food. I was a little cranky. And succumbed to Eggs Benedict. After breakfast met up with people, then while they we... Read more

We have a weekend trip to a convention where we have a lot of friends and a busy schedule. The good news is that it's going to be a lot of fun. The bad news is it means restaurant eating from Thursday (we fly out at 6am) through Sunday. It's goi... Read more

I refuse to diet. Diets are about deprivation, and continual hunger, and wanting wanting CRAVING cheating guilt. That's no way to live, and with over 100 pounds to lose, I can't think if my life as on hold while I lose weight. My vow is sim... Read more

Staying on track

The day off was good for me. I worked out hard this morning and felt very good about it. I'm still playing with the schedule of my workouts, trying to find the optimal approach. But I feel pretty good about it today.... Read more

Overdid it :-(

Today is my first month Sparkiversary. How am I celebrating it? By having my first serious bout of soreness and miseries. I wouldn't worry about it much, but the pain is in joints. Taking a day off from working out. Hoping a day of rest is ... Read more

Traveling on the Spark

Sunday, October 16, 2011      6 comments

I traveled far this weekend, a driving trip from Ohio to Maryland. 6 hours of driving each way. Now, long drives have always translated to junk food binges for me - you have to keep your energy up, right? Driving is hard work, right? W... Read more

I am kind of a geek for the Spark Points, and love to see myself get over 100 points each day. But I only give myself points for things I actually do, when I do them. So when I see the leaderboard for points starting the month with over 2000 poi... Read more

I should be committed

I am fortunate in that I get to work from home, so I am able to structure at least a good portion of most of my days. But that's not always the best thing for someone who is a natural procrastinator. I went for most of this year without working ... Read more

Infuriating advice

Tuesday, October 11, 2011      7 comments

Want to know why it's so hard to figure out the right exercise plan? Consider the fact that the experts themselves don't agree on what you should do. An article in the "Everyday Health" emails I receive here stated that too much cardio was a cul... Read more
