Meeting with friends

I had a great time meeting some of my Sparkfriends today. There was six of us and it was pretty low key, but very nice. I had already met three at previous "reunions." It was great meeting two "new" friends face-to-face. I find it really i... Read more

Macronutrition seminar notes

The dietician that was speaking is an ultra runner, so some of this info is geared more to those 50k and 100k runners. Some was common knowledge, carbs should be 45-70%, fats 20-30% and protein 10-25% of your diet. (I know the amounts don't add ... Read more

What I'll always be.

Sunday, January 18, 2015      54 comments

I'm not sure why, but during church this morning I started thinking about "who we'll always be." The journey is a long one. We change in so many ways. We get stronger mentally and physically. We get smaller bodies and bigger self esteem. We get... Read more

A realization

It has been a busy week! I've had a commitment every night this week. I have another one tonight. I have still been getting my exercise in, though! I'm very proud of that. I'm also coming to terms with my "new changes." I realize that the... Read more

Can I just say I am way over this perimenopause stage! Two "cycles" in less than 10 days stinks! Out of control is an understatement. No wonder my scale is up and down, up and down! My pants are tight, my cravings are crazy and I'm moody... Read more

The orthotics dilemma

Sunday, January 11, 2015      16 comments

I ordered my orthotics last week, but my husband is being a bit of a "butt head." He e-mailed me articles that explain how bad they are for you. The articles said that orthotics promote injuries and don't help. I told him that I could find ar... Read more

I spent seven hours at our school volunteering to help with the robotics competition. Our school had three teams and one won! (Weird play on words.) The other team that won was a "walk up" team. Read more

A better outlook

Friday, January 09, 2015      13 comments

Hi all! I did better yesterday with my eating and that seems to really help me. That darn ole mental game that those numbers, and clothes, can do to us. I realized that I have the same difficulty every winter. It reminds me when I had k... Read more

Getting frustrated.

I was happy with my workout yesterday. I ended up going over my calorie range, but it wasn't junk. I was just so hungry last night. I have found that anytime I eat after 8:00 PM, I will gain weight. Even if I'm under calories for the day and... Read more

A cold day off of work.

Wednesday, January 07, 2015      7 comments

They called school off due to extreme frigid temperatures. It was -35 windchill this morning. So what does one do on a day off? 75 minutes and almost 5 1/2 miles on an elliptical. It felt awesome! It was so cold and it felt so good to sweat... Read more

Another type of phone call.

Tuesday, January 06, 2015      15 comments

Today I had to make a very difficult phone call. I had to call child protective services on a lady that I've known since she was a little girl. She lives with her mom and pays nothing to help support her girls. She is verbally and physically ag... Read more

Back to work.

Sunday, January 04, 2015      8 comments

Tomorrow I head back to work. I'm not sure how I'll rearrange my exercise schedule. I always walk for about 40 minutes at work, but since it's with a colleague, it's significantly slower than my normal pace. I'm still walking though, right? ... Read more
