Time for an Adjustment

Sunday, March 08, 2015      7 comments

Yesterday was the official end of the Winter 5% Challenge. How did it go? Overall, great! We had wonderful leaders with lots of good ideas to share, and "reporting" my fitness minutes and other details to my team made me feel more accountable. I... Read more

Looking Back, Moving Forward

It's that time of year...New Year's Resolutions. Everywhere we look, we see nifty ideas on getting fit or getting organized "once and for all" or "New Year, new you!" I wish it were that easy, all my bad habits broken at the stroke of midni... Read more

May You Be Blessed Today...

That's what a kind stranger told me today. I had held the door open for him. Then we were both on the elevator, on our way to our respective doctor's appointments. I was lost in thought, a little bit nervous. He got out one floor before me,... Read more

No, thank you!

My gym is undergoing renovations, so to keep us campers happy, they've been giving out freebies almost every day. Some days, it's tea and/or coffee, and some days it's sample-size hair-care products. Recently, there was a beautiful platter... Read more

My favorite thing to do on Spark is to read blog entries. I know, my favorite thing should be "trying new healthy recipes" or "doing a new workout video." Those are worthwhile activities that I definitely should be doing more often. But the... Read more

Checking In

Monday, October 13, 2014      8 comments

In my last blog, I wrote about how I wanted to make the time for some kind of creative outlet. So far so good! I've signed up for another crochet class at the rec, and I'm in the process of finishing a cowl I started in March. I've done a l... Read more

A tangled web

Monday, October 06, 2014      5 comments

My quest for the month of October is to re-locate my creativity. So far, so good! Yesterday, I went to a cooking class, which was quite inspiring. Today, I replaced my lost crochet hook, and selected some yarn just to practice with. I ... Read more

I'm hooked again! Last night was the start of a crochet class at the rec. I've taken this class before, probably six months ago, and the teacher is fantastic and the atmosphere is relaxed. I loved it! I wish the class was year-round, but it... Read more

Goodbye Summer?

Friday, September 19, 2014      5 comments

Some people have a poor sense of direction. I have a poor sense of time. Where did Summer go? There's a pumpkin patch cropping up at a nearby empty lot; a magazine I received in the mail yesterday had the phrase "autumn beauty" plastered on... Read more

Today is Day 1

Thursday, August 21, 2014      4 comments

Yesterday, my fitness streak ended. I had gotten up to 38 days of exercising for at least 10 minutes a day, but yesterday, it just didn't happen. Actually, I didn't make it happen. A streak is easy for me to maintain when things overall are... Read more

Day 21

Saturday, August 02, 2014      5 comments

Today is Day 21 of my exercise streak -- at least 10 minutes a day, every day. Most days I do more, but for me the point was to become consistent again with my exercise. Today I walked a little over 5 miles with a friend. It went by so fast... Read more

Today is Day 14

Saturday, July 26, 2014      2 comments

Inspired by various spark friends, from SparkGuy to Kpetsche (1,000 days!!) I decided to start my own streak. I've been doing a minimum of 10 minutes a day, every day. Up til this point, I did something most days, but then I had days where I'd s... Read more

I've been needing to shake things up a bit. So, inspired by Spark Guy (and all the other streakers out there), I want to start a streak of my own. I will exercise for at least 10 minutes a day, every day. Read more

Gaining Insight...Maybe

Thursday, June 19, 2014      3 comments

For the past month, most days, I have been spending a good deal of time at my parents', helping my Mom as she recovers from her second surgery in 6 months, and helping my Dad hold down the fort. I am fortunate to be able to do this. They live ab... Read more
