  • Walking musings

    10/24/2014 5:06:37 PM, by DRTOVAH

    Lately as I walk, I've been thinking of various long term future "What if?" events. I hesitate to plan much long term as so many things in life change for a variety of reasons, and usually beyond my control. In the past, it has weighed me down to think of the people/situations/jobs/etc., I liked and... Read more

  • A few little milestones

    10/23/2014 8:34:18 PM, by DRTOVAH

    Since the last post, I've hit a few milestones: *1700 miles walked since I started Spark with Fitbit. Making good progress towards 1800 miles :) *I've wanted to jog. No matter how hard I've tried in the past year and a half, I'd be able to do a little sprinting when walking but then feel t... Read more

  • FLYing and Consistency

    10/16/2014 5:25:00 AM, by DRTOVAH

    In addition to getting back to Spark, I also am getting back on track with FLYLady organizing. It is pretty much the only real way I can handle the move and the unpacking on the other end. A lot of the concepts of FLYing and Sparking are quite similar. A lot of small manageable steps that add up.... Read more

  • Crazy Day!

    10/15/2014 8:39:17 PM, by DRTOVAH

    Today was crazy. My sleep schedule was way off. I got tired earlier than normal last night. Dark rainy days tend to fast forward my internal clock a bit. So I went to bed a bit early since I was dragging anyways. Of course that meant I woke up in the wee hours of the night. So I did some light work... Read more

  • Finding balance

    10/14/2014 8:26:11 PM, by DRTOVAH

    One of the big hangups that seem to derail me is those 'off' days. When a pattern of good habits gets broken due to weather, special event, extra work, illness, etc. Not just in terms of Sparking but it could be anything else I'm involved with. As I'm relocating back home in less than 6 weeks, I'm ... Read more

  • Re-booting the Blog!

    I took a break from Sparkpeople last year. It was a rough year with full of really crazy circumstances. A job change, promising relationship that didn't work out, some crazy living situations (I've learned no more roommates EVER!). NY winter was especially rough and I didn't have a support system, s...
