Confession: I'm a weather wimp
Tuesday, February 01, 2011      17 comments

I'm reading my Facebook friends status proclaiming the 75 inches of snow predicted for where they are, etc. I wimped on freezing drizzle yesterday. I'm wimping again today and we're only predicted 1 - 3.5 inches of snow. Of course, that's on ... Read more

it has been warmer all week, and those mounds of snow in the background of my page are slowly melting. Meanwhile, my trip to the sidelines with whatever bug it was on Thursday was followed by a shaky but improving return to work day on Frid... Read more
If you're too sick to work... are you too sick to Spark?
Friday, January 28, 2011      15 comments

When I was a kid, my mom had this rule: if you're too sick to go to school, you're too sick to play. That childhood training kind of lingers even now. It's not entirely true, you know. You can be too ill to be effective at work and still hav... Read more
Giving the gadget another chance

Short background for those who missed earlier blogs: The "gadget" is a BodyMedia GoWear fit armband. I was excited to get it wore it two days, arm broke out. Folks gave me some suggestions, some of which aren't feasible (clear nail polish on ... Read more
Majority Rules Checkin
Tuesday, January 25, 2011      12 comments

I started tracking this "have at least a good day, 6 times a week" goal at the beginning of the year. It kind of started as a measurement of whether how I felt about each individual day contributing to how I felt about the week, the month, etc.... Read more
Pondering the stones
Monday, January 24, 2011      17 comments

While on my little trip last weekend, I happened into a gift shop, thinking about the folks back home on my little work team. I was looking for something that wasn't junk, wasn't too cheesy, and also fit in the budget. Didn't want to play favo... Read more

Snow is falling
Saturday, January 22, 2011      9 comments

I'm glad to say the snow has started falling. I think one of my least favorite times is waiting for the forecast storm(s) to arrive... not knowing if they really will. You see, since I shovel by hand, I try to adapt my formal exercise to allow... Read more
Back to pre-training
Friday, January 21, 2011      12 comments

My pre-training for the half marathon called for 3 miles last Saturday and 5 miles last Sunday. Since I wasn't in a position to measure, I simply adapted to where I was and what was available. I certainly got enough steps in to add up to those... Read more
The gadget... sigh.
Thursday, January 20, 2011      16 comments

Remember how excited I was to get my new techno-tool, the BodyMedia Activewear Fit arm band? Well, folks, I am allergic to base metals. Costume jewelry doesn't have to have much in it to make me break out. Turns out the sensors on this little... Read more

Tuesday, January 18, 2011      10 comments

I trekked out of here after a week of fretting over the reservations and "travel orders" not showing up 'til the last minute. In fact, they arrived in my son's e-mail about 13 hours before takeoff. Talk about cutting it close. I stressed over... Read more
