So my last blog was about my tomatoes and how they were slow coming on and I couldn't wait until they did... this blog is about the other side of things...
I got home from work last night and hit the garden. I'd been kind of neglecting the on... Read more
Where are the tomatoes?
It's almost mid-August, the garden is in full swing... well mostly.
Cucumbers are going great, as are the cabbage, onions and broccoli. The corn is a bit behind but nice and sweet and doing ok. The peppers are doing as my peppers normally do... Read more
I'm a cheater... at least I admit it. Tried to do what I was supposed to do and got to the point that I said "Forget it!". Been having some health issues that my doctor can't figure out so I've been banned from caffeine, alcohol, exercise, sal... Read more
Another icon gone
Just heard the news that Farrah died today. Another icon from my youth is no longer with us and I've realized that I'm beginning to see the start of where I'm going to hear more about deaths of those near to me than births... another day older,... Read more
Week 8 at the gym
Just finished another week at the gym I joined a little while ago and as part of the program I'm in, that means I hit another milestone to be weighed and measured. So I step on the scale and the numbers were moving in the right direction (which... Read more
A new Trophy!
After just over a year on SparkPeople I've passed the 25,000 mark and got a new trophy! I've been watch... Read more
A rough week...
As I write the title of this blog "a rough week" I wince, because in reality, while it's a busy, crazy, hectic, tiring week, it isn't really "rough" when I compare it to the weeks of others. Maybe this is a good thing. I started to write this ... Read more
Whoops! Slight miscalculation!
Because I live in Michigan, yet I enjoy my summer vegetable garden, I tend to start some of my seeds inside ... you know, those things like corn with the longer growing season. The problem is, this year, we're still getting cold nights and thos... Read more
Week 1 at the gym
Joined a new gym last week and I have to say I LOVE it! It's not anything I'm used to, I mean, I've done a boot camp class through community ed, but it's always held in the cafeteria or on the gym floor and it's just not the same as going into ... Read more
So I'm walking down the hall about midway through my day here at work and coming my direction is one of my co-workers. As we pass in the hallway and greet each other she says to me "you're just too happy". I laughed, then made a sad face and w... Read more
Walking Challenge Day 3
So I start off here on Day three chained to my desk and weighed down with meetings but I'm not going to let that get me down. I am sure I won't take anywhere close to the numbers I put on my pedometer the last two days, but that isn't the point... Read more
Day 2 walking challenge
So we start off on Day one with some pedometers that weren't functioning properly... I think we ended up having to replace 4 of the original 5 and then one of the replacement ones... so I'm sure we lost some steps there along the way ~shrug~ oh ... Read more
Day 1 Week 1 of the 12 week challenge
Day one and my team is off to a rough start. One team member didn't pick up her pedometer yet, so she'll be at zero steps until almost midnight tomorrow! The second team member picked hers up on the weekend, then promptly washed and dried it. ... Read more
12 week challenge
Monday is the start of a challenge at work. Each department has a group of 5 people on a team. Each team records the distance they walk (run, treadmill, whatever) and turn it in each week. At the end of the 12 weeks, we'll see which team went... Read more
A year on SparkPeople!
Wow. Time flies. I've been on SparkPeople a year this week and I'm just amazed at not only how much I've accomplished, but how much I've learned. Even now at my maintenance weight I continue to use the site for Nutrition information, motivatio... Read more
