This is one of those days I'm happy to live in Florida--pleasant temp, nice breeze, less humidity than usual. It was a perfect day to start our yearlong family membership at Sunken Gardens in St Petersburg with our visiting daughter and my mom.... Read more
What do you do when your vegan daughter sends you a list of recently discovered food sensitivities? I found a recipe I hope is a winner, and I'm preparing now for when she arrives tomorrow.
Wild rice + dried blueberries and cranberries +... Read more

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
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
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
Summer Challenge and something new
I've posted my final weigh-in for Summer 5% Challenge. I lost 4 lbs. That's only 4 of the 10 that would ... 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!
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

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
