New Month

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      3 comments

Last week of summer vacation. It is the week I dread all summer. Where you are trying to shove all the final fun stuff into just a few days. I already know that my hours will change with the new school year. DD and I have worked out a car sc... Read more

Hmmm (don't judge)

Monday, August 31, 2015      4 comments

I have been using a fitbit for a couple of years now. I find it really helps me. Keeps me motivated to continually move and get those steps in. I have a daily goal I set for myself and a daily goal that I actually admit to. They are not the ... Read more

Dear Sparkpeople web designer(s) - QUIT REDESIGNING! It has taken me a while to get used to the redesign of a few months ago. Still not keen on it but I'll suck it up and keep on. Today I log in and WHAM weird layout again. I had to look for... Read more

Capsule Wardrobe

Monday, August 24, 2015      3 comments

Anyone on here do the 'capsule wardrobe' thing? I've been reading quite a bit about it lately. It must be part of the simplifying your life thing since that is mostly where I see it talked about. I've been simplifying my life for years ... Read more

Tire Trouble

Sunday, August 23, 2015      2 comments

Yesterday and today DH and I biked. It is his favorite thing in the whole world to do which is one of the major reasons for our wanting to move closer to town so we can do it more often. Friday he had the day off and we got up extra early so w... Read more

Ugly Feet

Saturday, August 22, 2015      7 comments

Feet. We all have them. My feet are ugly now. After years and years of walking they have corns, callouses, and occasional blister. I have one right now on my big toe. It is dark and ugly and hurts, especially at night when my sheet touches ... Read more

Heat and Tomatoes Just Go Together

Tuesday, August 18, 2015      3 comments

Took yesterday off, something I haven't done in a very long time. Just kind of loafed around the house and read instead. It was really, really nice to do that. Still got in quite a few steps from doing laundry, taking care of compost, moving ... Read more

Today I earned 100 sparkgoodie points when I spun. Normally I don't like getting those but today I was feeling pretty darn good about myself so I used it to buy myself a new pair of sunglasses. It has been so hot and sunny out that I could cer... Read more

Younger DD and I drove over to Saugatuck yesterday. Our first time there. I walked in the morning before leaving since the drive was expected to be over 2 hours each way. We printed out googlemap instructions on how to get there and then ... Read more

Spark Mojo Missing and First House Showing!

For over 2 years I logged in to SP faithfully every single day. Had quite an awesome streak going and then - poof - it was gone one day because I forgot. Now I am lucky to log in a couple times a week. It just isn't a priority anymore. Where... Read more

Bid Day

DH is off this week for vacation. He has been walking with me in the early morning but also complaining that we are out there walking when we could be biking. He loves to bike. So today we biked after the walk. It was tiring but I felt absol... Read more

New Month

Saturday, August 01, 2015      1 comments

New month. For the past 2 months I have not met my step goal. Not sure why since it is summer and I am more active in summer, at least I always thought I was. But all this year I've hit 700,000+ steps except in June and July. Weird for me. ... Read more

Hot Weather Sickness

Thursday, July 30, 2015      1 comments

The past week has been unusually hot here in Michigan. So humid even going for a walk at 6AM is exhausting and hot. I have not felt well in days. My blood pressure has been all over the place. Very low one day (109) to mid-130's the next. I... Read more

It is pretty obvious that no one (or barely anyone) reads my blog. I guess I should be accepting since it lets me get things off my chest. So I will plug along on my journey.... Read more
