My new Spark...

Sunday, March 07, 2010      3 comments

I really have gotten a new Spark now that life is moving forward again. I am also reflecting on 2009, a task which is bound to happen over time. I went to St. Louis with my recruiter on Wednesday to get my ID card and a set of uniforms. I... Read more

Including the cold... this has been a weird cold... last Friday my head was spinning and pounding, so I stayed home. Felt fine Sat, Sun & Monday. Had nasty sore throat Tuesday and was fine yesterday for the trip to St. Louis. Today my nose is... Read more

I have had a great start to this week, exercise and eating-wise. I'm really jazzed! I have been pushing it on the treadmill bit by bit now that my ankle is better... doing incline work & gentle slower jogging. Tonight I ran a minute @... Read more

It's been quite a week. A week ago Friday my ankle decided it was going to go out... I sprained it very badly in 2001 and it sometimes just says, "I don't think so." Apparently it's better now. But I took it easy with the exercise, mostly doi... Read more

Entirely too long...

... since I blogged here. I'm kind of ashamed of myself... not eating right, trying to exercise... a lot of try and not so big on the do. So I'm back at it again and it's REALLY important now! I finally got my orders from the Army! This ... Read more

What do I want to look back at and say?

But I'm here. Overall doing better, but this past weekend, I was a very bad panda... my new scrapbooking software sucked my will to do anything else. It's fantastically fun and I can let my creative juices flow!! But as usual, I seem to be... Read more

I just did a mile walk @ 3.5 miles... but you know that was just what I needed. Just watching my favorite show and walking was wonderful. I didn't think that much, I just walked and let it be. The scale was friendly today too! 146.2... s... Read more

Another week starts...

My weekend was great, though my eating wasn't. I gamed all day with the Camarilla... the game I ran went really well, I was so pumped that it went well. The Requiem game (vampire) was a blast and my character was made Sheriff of Columbia. (N... Read more

OK, well considering that last week was kind of a waste due to back pain and a cold... this week has gotten continually better. emoticonRead more

I have only burned about 600 cals so far this week... 1500 is my goal... and I've had 3 no-count or over calories days.... gah. So be it. Weird week, but my energy is really surging back... and I did 42 minutes on the TM before pooping out... Read more

... but my mind is everywhere else today... not in a bad way... just spacey. I'm trying to blog everyday... I am happy, got myself back up to 14 push ups... it's a slow process, esp since my goal is 25.... but I have done 14 & 12 today in s... Read more

I am so happy to have a battery back in my pedometer again... I know I will really get back on the horse with gusto now! I love that 10K steps per day goal! I also stayed in calorie range... upper end, but in range on everything!! S... Read more

I got on the treadmill and had a good walk. The cold seems to be drawing off and my stamina is returning. The walk also helped my back.. it feels much better. I did have some interesting songs spin up on my mp3 player: 1) Hundred Hearts... Read more

I have been overall doing better with exercise and eating and the general "getting back on my program"... but it's frustrating when I have a really good week and then something happens to stall out my progress... usually things beyond my control... Read more

The Army still sits glacier-like...

Still no orders... Sunday is 6 months since I was commissioned. I've still done nothing, and they've not paid me for the privilege... so I guess it's a wash. I'm in their system somewhere... but nobody seems to know what is going on. Meh. ... Read more
