I'm trying to become a morning person. Really I am. However, when it's 5:30 in the morning, cold and rainy, can anyone really blame me if I'd rather stay in my nice warm bed instead of getting up and going for a run? Especially when I spent last... Read more
Much better day.
It dawned on me, late yesterday, why I was having the day I was, and it wasn't PMS after all. It was stress and anxiety over a job I was supposed to do tomorrow, that I was dreading, and deep down, I knew it wasn't a job I needed to be doing.

My motivation is missing.
and it's been replaced with the munchies.
Sitting here bored, not wanting to do anything...except maybe eat. Ugh.....not loving this.
Eating everything in sight.
Sounds like PMS to me.
Blah.... Read more
A nice day...
that started really early.
Partner dude showed up at 5:30 this morning and we ran a couple miles before his first client and a meeting I had to go to, then when we were done with those we made a fairly quick trip to downtown Detroit, to pic... Read more
The blog post I meant to write yesterday.
That's the problem with waiting til later to blog, I forget what I wanted to blog about and go off in a whole other direction...LOL.
So, my kids are wonderful, amazing, and so cool I can hardly believe they're mine. All 4 of them, but right... Read more
One of my favorite months. Probably because Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love that there's no gifts to be bought, no pressure. Just yummy food with people you love. In our house, we have a kind of silly tradition. We eat Thanksgiving ... Read more
Another busy weekend.
Walked 3 miles with the partner and the kids yesterday morning, then spent a little time at the mall, which I haven't done in a while. Last night we went to a Halloween party at the YMCA I use to work at. For the past 4 Halloweens, I was one of... Read more
Started the day with an hour of hula hooping, followed by a little strength training, which was followed by a 2 mile run with the partner-guy. Came home, showered, then took my daughter (and the perfect baby granddaughter!) out to lunch at Paner... Read more
Long, crazy busy day. I did okay for most of it, but then I got cold and tired, and caved into the lure of stuff I shouldn't eat. I know what to do, how to take care of myself, and I know I feel better when I do it. Why is it still so easy to N... Read more
Today started with a 3 mile run with my partner after the boys got off to school....which was followed by some serious baby granddaughter cuddling....and...well..what else could possibly matter after that? LOL
I may be biased but I think ... Read more
A change of plans.
I've been so busy lately, I've been craving a day to myself. No kids, no husband, no partner, just me...doing something wild and crazy like...you know...cleaning my house. Tomorrow was supposed to be that day.
Right up until my phone rang ... Read more
What is it about 40?
Seriously, it's NOT a cut-off, it's just a number!
Twice in the last 2 days, I've seen references to 40 like it's OLD or something. Puh-leeeeeease! Not even close! The first was the blog of a fellow sparkerwho was celebrating her 40th, and... Read more
WHY am I so darn tired? Must be the week having caught up with me. Ugh! I'm supposed to run with partner guy tomorrow morning at 8, sure hope I can find some energy by then. Tomorrow we're also speakers at a luncheon, talking about the health be... Read more
I finally have a new phone. It's currently smarter than I am, but I'm gaining on it. Sheesh! I have to keep reminding myself that taking on new mental challenges keeps the brain healthy. So if I keep dropping my phones and upgrading them...I'll ... Read more
is my word of the day, even though I'm still the proud owner of a broken phone and an old phone that's reminding me why progress is a GOOD thing. Also despite the fact that I got my hair cut today...and BOY is it short...this is going to take a ... Read more
