I can't possibly condense the nearly two years I've been gone from spark into a single blog entry so I won't even try. But, I will list my biggest hurdles/stressors, and tell you all what I plan to do about them:
- Partial spinal fusion: I'... Read more
502 days and counting... Here's the custom walking program!
As I wrote yesterday, since walking is the ONLY sanctioned form of exercise after my spinal fusion for the next 3+ months, I've come up with a custom 12-week walking program.
It would be far too easy just to feel defeated and do nothing, as... Read more
503 days to goal. New, custom walking program!
In the last 3 days, I haven't done much to work toward my goal, I admit. I was feeling ashamed, but I need to turn that shame into motivation. So, I've not done much -- okay. I can't go back in time and change that. What I can do is work with in... Read more
506 days to goal... Plus a long-overdue update
December 4, 2015. It's the day I've chosen, with my dear friend, as my goal date. I would like to reach my goal weight by this date. Nay-- I WILL reach my goal weight by this date! That's 506 days from today.
Why the sudden update? Apparent... Read more
Self-designed, semi-flexible diet.
I am still recovering from influenza, so my activity has been waning since Thursday. However, I've taken this opportunity to think closely about my diet. In general, I've been thinking a lot about my diet lately. This goes along with what I wa... Read more
Detox Diets - And long time, no post.
So, this post is going to be part update, part commentary on a detox diet I'm doing with a friend.
WHERE have I been? Sadly, ill. I've been having kidney issues again, starting with a stone and subsequent infection, followed by lots of foll... Read more
BLC19, WUB #1 - 1 day late, but not especially short.
I began writing this yesterday, but got too distracted and subsumed with my life. Such is usually the case with me. :|
I have to admit, despite the energy surrounding BLC19 (I love it!!!), some things going on in my personal life have made ... Read more

Living the GSD Lifestyle
Why do I procrastinate? This is something I've been considering for some time, not only as it pertains to my health goals but also other personal goals. Why does it take me so long to accomplish even simple, little goals? In fact, it sometimes s... Read more

UPDATE: 101 Things in 1001 Days
It's been a while since I updated this list, and there have been small changes and rearrangements. However, the general sentiment remains the same! Changes have been only to 1) challenge myself more or 2) because they were for something I wouldn... Read more
