I wish I had more positive news to report. My wrists are not worse, but not better either. I have wrist splints and orders to continue limiting typing. I'd be really worried about my job if I hadn't had help from a friend in Assistive Technol... Read more

A real downer

Saturday, October 10, 2015      9 comments

Hi all, I have repetitive stress injury from work. That means as little typing as possible, preferably none, so I won't be visible here for awhile. I will be keeping up good Spark habits though. I'm a secretary, and work is going to be c... Read more

Checking in after a lull

Sunday, October 04, 2015      9 comments

I haven't been very active here for awhile except for bare minimum. Instead, I spent my time on an online Living Lean course and some related activities, courtesy of my health insurance. Now that I'm done with the course, it's back to more Spa... Read more

Whew. First week back on normal 5-day schedule hasn't been exactly normal. I've stayed late Mon, Tues, Wed, went in early today, and will start early tomorrow as well. Where is my "normal'? My "normal" does not seem to include the motiva... Read more

It's Monday, woohoo!

I don't often say that about a Monday, but this one is worth a woohoo. My 4 day weeks of 10 hr days is done with till next summer, and I'm back on a normal schedule. I get to leave half an hour later, I get a whole hour for lunch instead of a ... Read more

It's Thursday, woohoo!

Thursday, July 23, 2015      5 comments

For the summer, Thursdays are my Friday. That's the upside. The downside is that I have only three work days before heading off on vacation again, this time to a family reunion. While I'm looking forward to traveling with my mom again, the ne... Read more

Videos #14 & 15 Today: 11 min Chair Cardio Routine. This is one of my favorites. Gets heart rate up, gets me awake and moving. Yesterday: 10 Min Lazy Day Workout. This is a keeper too. Can actually do it. Nothing yet about j... Read more

Thanks, everyone, for prayers and good wishes. I've never had a job interview by phone, sitting in a breakfast nook overlooking a rose bush! I thought it went well. The questions were all ones I could respond to easily, and I feel good ab... Read more

Our daughter has done a wonderful job of planning senior-friendly exciting things to do as well as fixing vegan meals that even my mom is raving about. We highly recommend Airbnb, and our rental house is close enough to walk to daughter's apart... Read more

Why I don't like Pilates

Tuesday, July 07, 2015      7 comments

After walking in 100 different parks this year, my follow-up is to do all ALL the SP workout videos. I started with the yoga/pilates ones because pilates is my least favorite. This body at this weight simply cannot do it. Usually, I jus... Read more

Ready for the week

Sunday, July 05, 2015      7 comments

First week of 5% challenge? OK, no loss, but at least no gain. I've been moving an office and eating on the run, so no gain is good indeed. I think I'm past the worst of it. I moved my own office on Thurs, packing my car to the brim with the... Read more

OK, back to doing all the SP videos project. I did the 10 Min Yoga Fusion Workout. Granted, I could do maybe half of it as shown, and my body did not resemble the models, but I improvised with other stretching, and it felt really good. Da... Read more
