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!
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
Vacation in Seattle
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
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
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
Wk 1 Day 3 + Video #12 - 10 Min Yoga Fusion Workout
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
Day 2 Summer 5% Challenge
Well, I haven't gotten to a video, but I've done some serious cleaning and cooking and shopping. Haven't calculated fitness minutes yet, might do at least a short video later. Read more
Day 1 not so good, but...
Day 1 of Summer 5% Challenge is not a stellar day. Tired + unprepared = eat whatever's on hand, eat leftovers to get rid of them, read, and nap.
Barely keeping up
I'm having a tough time right now. Work has a lot of complications at the moment, and I'm... Read more
A foodie day

SP Video #11 - 10 Min Pilates Thigh Workout
One more down and lots to go! I really need to get my summer schedule shaped up so I'm doing one at least 5 days a week. As I said before, Pilates is not my favorite thing to do, and I have to be careful not to overdo and aggravate any joints.... Read more
