Does Sugar = Pain?
Okay, I don't actually have video of me chowing down on cake and ice cream but it doesn't matter; photos and mirrors will do the same trick. I have been deluding myself with the idea that I am able to control my sugar intake just by watching it... Read more
So, I've been away. Mostly mentally. I did travel to Newport, OR to a truly wonderful quilt show. My traveling companions were my mom and her sister. We had a truly great time. Mom and I got up every morning and walked down a short but steep hil... Read more
Hi, this is just a test blog. Between my internet server and my pain I have been away and awry. Coming to the Spark pages is like jumping into cool water, it is both an awakening and refreshing. It is amazing how much better one can feel after ... Read more
Okay, okay, OKAY!
For gosh sakes. Yes, I understand the need to write things out, to keep track of food eaten, to keep notes on my feelings. So, I've not been doing to well on most of those things. I have finally got the message. It took more ice cream than I am... Read more
An undulating course
I am a wee bit tired today. It has been a touch more difficult to get back up to speed, after my forced slow down, than I thought it would be. I have been on an every other day pattern for about two or three weeks. I'll have one decent or even ... Read more
What a great day.
Been working on getting up earlier in the morning and today I actually got up at 6:30. This is, like, hours earlier for me. Took an hour long walk followed by a few minutes of yoga to cool down. I had so much energy. The day heated up - 101 - b... Read more
A Little Ick. Maybe yoga.
Just a note. Had a few rough days. I am certain that I will have multiple lovely days now that I have so many of the other type. ... Read more
A Little Chat With Friends
Okay, pretty much all of us agree that negative self-talk is not productive especially for the long term; however, a good talking to can provide insight and a little motivation. I have been wandering around the house today looking for someone t... Read more
Choices. To have music while walking/jogging/ running, or to have natural background sounds. At the moment I hear my dog chewing his chew bone, a semi going down my rural highway, an amazing variety of bird talk, and now and then a car. This a.... Read more
Back in - Wheee!
Today, after more than two weeks off, I walked forty-five minutes without any trouble whatsoever. Ha! Take that fate! I haven't done any core workouts yet but I intend to start easing back into them starting tomorrow after my walk. I hope to be ... Read more
An Unexpected Time Out
My dear Spark People friends,
It feels as if it has been a month since the last blog. I have learned a few things, regret a few things, and am more determined to change a few things. Almost immediately on completing the Eight Week 5K challen... Read more
Monday is looking pretty good
So, I completed the eight week (ten week for me) challenge and wondered what I would do next. Well, I'll tell you: I decided to just keep on with the challenge. The final of the official challenge was walk 1 minute then run/jog 4 minutes repeat ... Read more
A Challenge A Victory
Okay, the eight week challenge took me longer than eight weeks - ten weeks one day to be exact - but I don't care; I finished it! I made it and now I know I can sign up for and complete a 5K. That is so utterly amazing.
I wanted to comment on... Read more
You can't see me but I am bouncing with excitement. I, Terri, have completed the 8 week 5K challenge. I am so jazzed. That is all I am saying on this blog. Good news. Great feeling. Happy. ... Read more
Ah, HA! Now I know.
So, the way to motivate myself is to eat Easter candy until I know it is bad for me (don't ask) and then get moving. Well, okay, that is a really piss poor plan but it is what happened. I finally got going today and I am so happy. I think I'll g... Read more
