My exercise deck
Did some more cards today after the kids went to bed. Very heavy on shoulders and legs. Lunges, squats, leg lifts of various sorts, calf raises..pushups, bridges, table tops.. Gonna be sore tomorrow, I think.
I like my black tea wi... Read more
So I've been testing out different allergy medicines this year. I started with generic-Claritin, which dried me out but didn't stop the itching or sneezing. Then I tried generic-Allegra, which mostly dried me up and took care of most of... Read more
My exercise deck, and other things.
I used my exercise deck today. I did about ten cards, I think. I did enough of each card to feel the burn a bit, which varies widely in duration/reps/sets. I don't want to get too sore, so I didn't push it real hard. But the cards work ... Read more
I got interested again in fitdeck and other methods of using cards to make a workout. But I just can't stomach paying $50 for all the decks I'm interested in, I'm just too cheap.
So I made my own. I have made 30 cards so far using ... Read more
I did week 1 day 1 of Couch-to-5K. Also did a couple minutes on my kids' hula hoop. I want a hoop of my own, sized for me, I think, with nice grippy tape to help me keep the hoop going.
My feet are complaining after the walk/run.... Read more
Just some quotes that hit me today..
MOTIVATION IS NOT....I REPEAT...NOT A REQUIREMENT to your journey!!
Do or Do Not, there is no Try.
Get up, get up, get busy do it
Get up and move that body

Not exactly the first week of January
So I said in an earlier blog I'd be back around the first week of January. Well, no. Big project at work went live on Jan 11, so the last week before and the month since have sucked mightily.
My old nemesis poor sleep returned with... Read more
I just *had* to post about this, it's so cool!
So I live a completely sedentary livestyle--or I did before October, anyway. Now I do BL for wii three or four times a week. Not exactly on par with folks who lift or run or whatever f... Read more
I've been taking an almost vacation from SP. I come in and read a little, but haven't written a blog or logged my food in days.
I've been pretty good, even without the logging. I've logged my food so many times over the years I'm p... Read more
On a whim yesterday I grabbed the skinny jeans from the bottom shelf and put them on. I had put them down there because they were too uncomfortable to wear. I have a sit down job, and they were cutting me in half. They're the same size ... Read more
Did my BL challenge today. My second time doing the Light Cycle. I was first right up til the end and then came in second. Ah well. It was football runs and tire runs, which are a little tough for me to sustain. But I did pretty good.

Haven't posted in a few days. There's nothing really going on to keep me away, just haven't felt like saying much lately.
These days, I find I am almost constantly stoked about my progress. Today the scale went down another pound, ... Read more
So today I hit the 10 lbs lost mark, since a few weeks before I started SP. It's been 6 lbs since I started SP.
Sucks, though, because I have a cold right now. I have a feeling that all the nose-blowing is changing ... Read more
Take *that*, Saltmonster!
So yesterday I didn't eat as much salt as the previous four days, even with a stop at Chick Fil A last night. And, as expected, the water left in a hurry. This morning I was *two* pounds lighter than yesterday, achieving a new low of 16... Read more

So here's a tip. If you take medicines of any kind on a daily basis, find out from the doc which ones have diuretic effects (even if that's not what they're for) and then DON'T TAKE THOSE AT BEDTIME!!!
Ugh. I've had crappy sleep no... Read more
