It was a WONDERFUL time, I had so much fun, we laughed until we cried every night, and we had glorious weather the whole time - and that's pretty good up in the arctic.
I'm slowly getting my spark life back together, but haven't yet summed up ... Read more
I posted this on a team I'm with, but wanted to keep it close at hand for when I return.
I'll think of some new challenges for August after my vacation but during it these are important to me:
1: Be without SparkPeople for 14 days and ... Read more
This is where we're headed next week, Lofoten, and I just HOPE it won't rain every day. It's a spectacular landscape, spiky mountains plunging into the cold sea and white sandy beaches. Pity it's REALLY COLD!
We'll try to get out on a fishing... Read more
We ran tonight a few hours after dinner and did pretty good on the last day of week 4. I say last, since I'm too curious a cat to be able to hold myself back. Maybe I should, since we're going away on a two week vacation this weekend and might n... Read more
I think something has "clicked" when it comes to doing strength for me. I realize I can't do it all at once, so I'll baby step my way into it with small doses every day or at least 6 days a week. I think it will do the trick.
Something sor... Read more
Thanks for all your feedback letting me know I'm not the only one who "suffers" when it comes to strength training. I just find it incredibly boring and try to switch around the exercises. Also I'm no good at it, which is a HUGE part of the prob... Read more
Had a lovely time with family this weekend and saw people I haven't seen in 4 years + some newborn offspring which was great. My aunt had prepared lots of food of course, but most of it was pretty healthy stuff like salads, seafood, grilled lean... Read more
I've been here for 12 weeks now! It feels ... it feels great. Words cannot express how it makes me feel to have pulled myself up from that couch. I ain't gonna sit down again, that's ... Read more
It's only ten days until B&A arrive and we get to show them the beautiful north of Norway. I've been surfing for plane tickets and lovely guest houses to plan for our trip, and we are going to have SUCH a great time! I called B today to ask abou... Read more
Thanks LL, I remembered those words from your page!
So we went out for our run again today, second day of week three in the Couch to 5K program. New route, new podcast and SOAKING WET clothes! Read more
me. Not a whole lot happening, but really feel I'm settling in to a more active lifestyle.
An uneventful trip to furniture shops, looking at couches (handy with a new one IF I should have to re-do the couch to 5K program, don't ye think? H... Read more
I'm so happy about SparkPeople for showing me that I CAN DO IT. Just now I'm cooling down after my walk/jog and feel so happy that I've been able to do day 1, week 3 of the C25K-program today. And I didn't DIE!
Also very happy that my dear ... Read more
A non-scale victory (NSV), I'm collecting them: My resting heart rate seems to have lowered! I am not sure I can trust the reading I get since my meds might have an effect, but I haven't changed the medication, so all in all I will count this as... Read more
Not mine (much) but my dearest complained today about feeling stiff.
We both stretched after our run yesterday, but I guess I've been using my muscles a bit more recently. I tell him it'll all feel better when he joins me on the next run. LOL.... Read more
