I thought I'd be late and maybe even really, really late. But my daughter's second job didn't need her this evening, and then she got off a little early from her full time job. So I was right on time to our local SparkTeam dinner. There we... Read more

October Update

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

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

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

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

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

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
