A quick note

Monday, October 15, 2012

Just a quick note to say THANK YOU to everyone who has made comments on my blogs or page or sent a Spark goodie lately. I'm in a super busy time at work that has me running a little ragged, plus a lot going on with life in general, so I haven't been able to get online as much as I'd like to say thank you individually, comment on others' blogs, or be very active in my teams. I'm still here, still doing well in spite of the increasing proliferation of tempting treats that seem to pop up everywhere you turn. I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel, at least in terms of work, so I'm hoping to have a little more time to spend here after another week or so.

It is amazing to me that in spite of the pressure and stress of life right now, I'm not reaching for the nearest carb or sweet constantly. That's a definite change in mindset and action from my old ways, and it's encouraging to see the number on the scale staying steady in the low to mid 140s even if I can't get in as many or as long a run as I'd prefer. I'm doing TRX once a week now in addition to two strength training classes a week, and I love it--next best thing after running in my book.

That's it for now--gotta check in on a couple of teams and get things together for the week before bedtime. I have a feeling tomorrow may be a very long day at work!

    Thank YOU for checking in on me, too! It's amazing how a little "like" can keep one going on a given day. Good luck with your work load, see you when you have the time.

    Don't you just hate it when life interupts your Spark, lol! Way to go on not reaching for the nearest junk food, and the work stress would still be there.

    If I don't get in any strength training with my running, my running suffers! Have a great week!

    Really good to hear that things are going well. I am at that point where I have to choose a change up in my workout routine. Right now I am trying to run faster and get my form better. Now with the rain setting in it will be more difficult to get outside for longer runs. Well, it is a challenge but a good one. Much better than thinking I am lazy and not doing anything. :-)

    Hope life continues going well for you! Joann

    Sorry your can't spend your time as you wish these days, but that's life, isn't it? I've been sick for two weeks so I know the feeling of things "getting away".

    But you are doing great! Maintaining, seeing your new habits pay off is a warm and satisfying feeling, is it not?

    I know you'll get through the next week with your usual grace and will be back to Spark in full force soon! Take care!!!
