  • Unique Greeting of the 1st Snowfall!

    11/27/2014 1:26:45 AM, by DDOORN

    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

    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

    Had a nice day today with a friend. It was an amazingly gorgeous day in upstate NY and we spent some time walking along a local river walk while our girls rode bikes. Stayed up way too late last night talking to an old friend, so not much energy today, but I did double up my boot camp video today.... Read more

  • Hooky Day Woo Hoo!

    11/11/2014 7:13:53 PM, by DDOORN

    Actually it wasn't precisely "hooky" but...I and only one other person in our non-profit human service agency are shared by the state office of mental health. State employees are being downsized in numbers tremendously as cost cutting measures result in farming out the work that we do to the lowest ... Read more

  • In Flanders' Field

    11/11/2014 12:23:04 PM, by WILLOW49

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie... Read more

  • Poppies in England for the Veterans

    11/11/2014 9:41:36 AM, by RAINBOWFALLS

    My husband and I had saved for years to go to England. He was born there and had never been back since coming to America in 1966. It was a wonderful vacation with one week spent in the country and another week spent in London. The tower of London was one of the sites on my list of things to see and ... Read more

    Still here and still Sparking strong. The weekend kind of got away from me. Lots of running around and household chores, especially yesterday. I've finished week 3 of my bootcamp, gojavascript:%20void(0);t in a good run this morning and have a fun evening planned with some runner friends. ... Read more

    I was excited to get up and run this morning, it was forecast to be a bit warmer than average and we've had some really lovely days. Unfortunately when I got up it was raining. I don't normally mind running in the rain, but my temp cutoff if about 50*, and it was close to 40 this am. So, since I wa... Read more

    11/3/2014 10:29:16 PM, by FRECKS96

    Not much to say today. I ate okay, did my boot camp video but otherwise took today as a rest day. Still have a pretty nasty cough, makes it hard to breathe sometimes. It's doubtful that I'm going to meet my first goal, but it will be close. Stupid cold ruining my plans. Working the rest of this... Read more

    Another busy but fun weekend. Friday I didn't feel great, so I did my boot camp video, my bonus video and called it a day. Saturday we spent the day cleaning for our Halloween party. I also took our dogs for a 2 mile walk. I didn't do my boot camp video, but I got that in today. Last night was... Read more

  • Hippie Halloween

    10/31/2014 8:51:31 AM, by RAINBOWFALLS

    I am a Hippie by day and a Zombie by night this Halloween. When I asked my husband how I looked this morning he said "Junior Year". To tell the truth he is probably right. We have some of our co-workers kids and grandkids coming in to Trick or Treat this afternoon so I couldn't where my Zombie cost... Read more

    Another short work day today meant another day with time for a long workout. I pulled out a video I hadn't done in awhile. Good for continued weight loss (my body responds well when in continually change things up), but I'm already sore from it. Lots of combination cardio and toning...squats and li... Read more

    10/29/2014 10:38:22 PM, by FRECKS96

    Today was a good day. I ended up working only in the afternoon, so I was able to get a little extra sleep, do my toning video, an extra cardio vid and got in a short run! I also ate pretty well today-even avoided all the junk and beer at an impromptu hockey game (boyfriend's dad got free tix for th... Read more
