  • "Disciplined"...? Moi?

    12/18/2014 3:13:31 PM, by DDOORN

    So far, so good navigating those treacherous holiday party to weather it pretty well! Helps to make sure to bring a healthy dish to pass. Mine was an apple / raisin / walnut salad with yogurt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Somebody made what they called "OMG Bars" a chocolatey-peanut butt... Read more

  • Just HAD to Pass This Story Along...!

    12/11/2014 10:24:01 PM, by DDOORN

    Recently at work, probably a carry over from Thanksgivoween candy mark-downs, some anonymous *questionably* well-meaning person at work brought in two GIGUNDO bags of candy corn and plopped 'em on the kitchen table for all to snarf. I studiously avoided those bags for a couple of's a ... Read more

  • Oh my injury :(

    12/5/2014 3:24:32 PM, by KAH0988

    Falling down the stairs and seriously spraining my little left toe has put quite a hindrance on what I want to achieve!! After 3.5 weeks I still can't put all my weight on it. However, today I decided that I wasn't just going to sit around for the 4.5 hours between when my fiancee leaves for work an... Read more

  • Holiday Fun With Bikes!

    12/4/2014 12:09:58 PM, by DDOORN

    One of the cool things our local bike club does is to join in with our local Christmas Parade. Our club members do some pretty clever things to trick their bikes out for the occasion, so I thought I'd pass along a couple pics they've shared in advance of the parade which is later tonight. Sadly the ... Read more

    I realize that in addition to weekends, vacations really are not good for me. I stay up late, go out, eat whatever is around, don't drink my water... Now I'm going to spend this week getting back into my good habits. I'm going to do the 28 day New you Bootcamp. I had started it last week, bu... Read more

  • Unique Greeting of the 1st Snowfall!

    Today was our 1st significant snowfall of the year and we got off work early...woo hoo, off to the fitness center! BUT: at the same time I am ready to leave work I get a surprise phone call from a bike club member who just got a free membership at the same fitness center...who is already there... Read more

  • Gratitude for a Much Needed Thanksgiving Ride!

    11/25/2014 9:26:31 AM, by DDOORN

    This past Saturday I had delivered Thanksgiving food baskets to several of my clients so I had a 1/2 day of comp time banked when we rolled into a sunny, 60+ degree day on Monday...and AGAIN, a blessed "hooky" day comes along! :-) First stop: the local state park which is practically in my back...

  • Beware!

    11/24/2014 8:25:16 AM, by DDOORN

    While SparkPeople has in general been a relatively "safe" haven within the wild, wild frontier of the internet, I have occasionally come across unscrupulous attempts to prey on members of our SparkFamily. So I send this out to alert people to exercise due caution when incidents such as I describe be... Read more

    11/23/2014 10:19:40 PM, by FRECKS96

    While I haven't blogged in almost 2 weeks, I have been sparking. I finished my 28 day boot camp strong, been getting back into running more steadily and have been working at moderating my nutrition. This weekend was pretty terrible as far as taking care of myself, but I got a lot done for my family... Read more
