    9/16/2014 12:09:03 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    Next year, the grant under which I am working ends. There is a possibility that I will continue on as an outreach manager for the Cancer Center, but dh presented me with another idea. ... Read more

  • I apologize

    9/11/2014 11:19:38 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    I have been so busy lately that I have had to prioritize and one of the things put on the back burner has been blogging. I have been focusing on getting 21000 steps daily this week to be increased to 22000 next week. My feet are killing me, but I just have to learn to deal with that. I use my reboun... Read more

  • Winding down

    9/9/2014 1:13:46 AM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    I worked almost 24 hours on the weekend, so I took today and tomorrow off. Dh has been whining about not seeing me enough. *insert eyeroll here* I am so looking forward to his hunting trip! I plan on heading down to Grants Pass to meet with my friend Cheryl to do some Zumba at the Y. I am also headi... Read more

  • Lost???

    9/8/2014 12:05:15 PM, by ERIN_POSCH

    I don't think so. Lots of folks think I'm weird for not being like everyone else. Maybe I am, but I like being different -- and I am not LOST! I just listen to the tune of a different drummer. I tried to be like everyon... Read more

  • Troubles and obstacles. Are things getting in the way???

    9/7/2014 11:23:55 AM, by ERIN_POSCH

    The little troubles and worries of life, so many of which we meet, may be as stumbling blocks in our way, or we may make them stepping-stones to a noble character and to Heaven. Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things. ~Henry Ward Beecher~ ********************... Read more

  • I'm doing better at remembering this for myself,

    9/5/2014 3:02:20 PM, by ERIN_POSCH

    but there are still many times I wish I could be bold enough to say this to others around me -- especially those that constantly whine about the same stuff over and over again. I'm sure you know the ones I'm talking about =) ... Read more

  • Meditate on this....

    9/3/2014 12:25:01 PM, by ERIN_POSCH

    Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8New International Version (NIV)... Read more

  • Back in the swing

    9/1/2014 11:00:36 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    Last week I made my 15,000 step goal daily with 2 days over 20,000. This month I am shooting for 20,000 daily. Today dear daughter Molly organized a delicious picnic with some activity planned. We tossed a ball around outside then we all went for a walk. She and I took 3 walks today. It is... Read more

    8/31/2014 12:04:51 AM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    So much going on right now and I'm feeling guilty about not keeping up with my SparkFriends and Teams, etc. I'm taking a break and I'll be back in a week or two. ... Read more

  • Oktoberfest in August

    8/29/2014 7:26:01 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    Last year the Oktoberfest celebration that I worked for my Prostate cancer awareness program was LITERALLY blown away (as in everybody's tents were blown into the creek), so they moved the date up to this weekend. I decided to go with the theme "Tackle Prostate Cancer" this year and am very ple... Read more

  • So busy!

    8/27/2014 11:33:47 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    I hate it that I have been on the road so much! 1 day this past week, I didn't even get 10,000 steps in! Working on it again now. I did over 15,000 yesterday and today. Tomorrow, I should be able to get about 20,000, then *maybe* the same on Friday. I have an event that I am working Friday, Saturday... Read more

  • I'll have what the skinny gal's having

    8/27/2014 7:21:11 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Today was the monthly lunch with the girls. I wasn't sure what to order. I've been doing so well and didn't want to blow it. I was hungry but I really didn't want to end up with a super-sized meal. When it came my turn to order, I told the waitress "I'll have what she's having" and motio... Read more

  • Did someone say Pizza?

    8/26/2014 6:47:51 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    If you read my blog yesterday, you'll remember that I said I thought I'd talked DH out if bringing home pizza last night. So, guess who showed up with a family size Cowboy pizza?! Well, after all, it was his birthday. I told him I would eat one piece . . . so he cut it into 4 piece... Read more

  • Monday, Monday

    8/25/2014 4:57:44 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Had a great weekend . . . still on plan. Today's DH's birthday and I think I just talked him out of pizza and into a fresh avo/tomato wrap for dinner. (Was that bad of me?) I needed some chuckles for the day. Thought you might enjoy some too. Read more

  • Walking..emotional?

    8/21/2014 1:13:31 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    I never thought of walking as being anything except exercise or a manner of transportation...until recently. When walking alone there is lots of time to think without distraction. Walking in the country brings its own unique distractions. I love seeing the bobcat, cattle, horses, geese and chic... Read more

  • Romantic texting by seniors

    8/21/2014 1:06:35 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    An elderly couple had just learned how to send text messages on their cell phones. The wife was a romantic type and the husband was more of a no-nonsense guy. One afternoon the wife went out to meet a friend for coffee. ... Read more

  • WooHoo!!!!!!

    8/20/2014 11:13:03 PM, by FIT4MEIN2013

    Since I didn't go to the office today, I slept in, then used my mini-tramp to walk/run on before I had to leave for my meeting this afternoon. Between 6am and 11 am, I got in 11,000 steps while working. It was rainy and dreary, bu... Read more

    8/20/2014 12:39:13 PM, by ERIN_POSCH

    I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. Martha Washington ... Read more

    Rich and I are having a dinner party tonight and won't be able to walk so the challenge was on to get my 20,000 steps in during my work hours. I walked to the store first thing this am. Then I walked over to check on a donation. Then I had to pick up raffle tickets for an event that is coming ... Read more

  • Physical or Emotional Hunger

    8/19/2014 11:11:57 AM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Eating mindfully is so important. Learning to identify true hunger from emotional hunger (or boredom) is key. If you're not hungry enough to eat something that's good for you (or at least not bad), chances are you're just bo... Read more
