October Update

Tuesday, November 01, 2011      7 comments

I wish I could tell you that in October I ran my fastest mile or my longest distance. I wish I could say I tried a new form of exercise or another piece of equipment. I wish I could say I did my longest plank or the most push ups ever. But Octo... Read more

Technical Problem

Sunday, October 30, 2011      8 comments

SparkPeople site is working just fine for me except for the dailySpark. When I try to read those blogs, my computer hangs up and I have to reboot. Sometimes I get a warning about scripts, sometimes not. Anyone else having this problem? It has be... Read more

Challenge To Do, But Not Overdo

Thursday, October 27, 2011      4 comments

Yesterday I did a half hour walking workout, then took both kids for a stroller ride including up a hill, and after the kids went home -- after supper but earlier than usual -- I inflated my tires and rode my bike. So I worked out about 55 minut... Read more

Fitness Plans and Hopes

The DailySpark has a good blog today about starting over to get in shape. The writer just delivered her third child. My five week cold definitely does not equate to even one pregnancy, but I feel a kindred spirit in trying to get motivated to ge... Read more

Recovery Underway

Monday, October 24, 2011      12 comments

My cough has finally gone away after 5 weeks of hacking! Yesterday I went to the gym and did a little over a half hour on the elliptical. I didn't push it and I could tell I'm not at the same level I was before I got sick. But I haven't lost a g... Read more

Without SparkPeople, He Would Have Gotten Away With It

Saturday, October 22, 2011      9 comments

First, let me say I adore my son-in-law. He is a very kind, polite and considerate person. Usually he is an attentive and effective father as well as one of the most caring people in my life. However, his halo might have slipped just a bit yest... Read more

Above is Natalie with her splint. She now has on a bright red cast. She just fell running in my yard. She didn't hit anything. Kind of strange, but it expected to heal up a... Read more

Can Hardly Wait

I've been too sick too much with three summer colds and I haven't been able to keep up my exercise and running. Yesterday I did a Leslie Sansone one mile walk, my first workout in nearly a month. My chest let me know that I wasn't 100%, but I th... Read more

It just doesn't happen to me every day. Maybe to some people it would not be a big deal, but I'm excited. I just got off the phone with my mom. I ordered her a copy of the book, Peace Corps at 50: Even the Smallest Crab Has Teeth. When I ordered... Read more

Up For Whatever Hours

Friday, October 07, 2011      10 comments

I kept the kids yesterday, usually my daughter's day off, for my daughter to interview for a full time job she wants. It would be 8am to 5pm, Monday - Friday, so my child care duties would be quite different hours. And at least for a while she p... Read more

Living Life

Wednesday, October 05, 2011      10 comments

My very wise SparkFriend Monty68 wrote something that I've been thinking about all day. In part he wrote, " I also think there comes a time when we drop the maintenance and define ourself as living life. It doesn't mean we forget about maintena... Read more
