Baby Steps toward Rebuilding Habits
Saturday, July 26, 2014      1 comments

It's good to be back. It's been a long time since I have kept up on any healthy habits - probably 8 or 9 months. It's amazing how long it takes to develop a new habit, and how quickly you can lose it. Skip a couple of days, and pretty soon yo... Read more

I'm back after my longest absence ever - 162 days. What happened? I was working hard this spring, getting the house in shape for a big family reunion. Then I got sick for awhile - headaches, funky stomach, balance issues. Then a month of hav... Read more

September was crazy. Two long road trips, followed by our church missions conference. I'm the missions secretary, so I'm heavily involved in the conference. I love it, but it always leaves me physically and emotionally exhausted. Part of the... Read more

I just read my last blog, written four months ago. I was just coming off a plateau and excited about getting out more when spring came. Unfortunately, I hit a big crash just after writing that. First, I got sick, which is typical for me i... Read more

It has been over three months since my last blog, in which i wrote about hitting a plateau. I guess it's easier to write about a victory, a challenge, or even a defeat than about...a plateau. But the good news is, at long last, I seem to be co... Read more
Confessions of a Plateaued Sparker
Saturday, December 08, 2012      2 comments

It's been over a month since my last blog. I guess I've been a bit discouraged because I have really plateaued on my weight. And it's not one of those plateaus where you have been doing everything right and the weight still won't come off - no... Read more
Trick or Treat Trot
Saturday, November 03, 2012      3 comments

Well, I only signed up for the 1 mile beginner walk because there's no way I can do a 5K yet - but I will be able to eventually! I knew I could do a 20 minute mile, so I was hoping to beat that. I finished in 18:35, and I am very happy with my... Read more

We had a wonderful trip to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We visited my old college roommate who introduced us 42 years ago! It was fun to reminisce and catch up on the past 40 years. We also visited a number of my husband's relatives.... Read more

I have been fighting a bug for over a week. I've tried resting, and haven't felt any improvement. So I've started pushing myself to get out and walk, and I actually feel good while I am walking and for awhile afterwards. It hasn't cured my bu... Read more
The Journey Continues
Wednesday, October 03, 2012      1 comments

This really is a journey; the road is not always smooth, and the progress is not always steady. There are bumps and twists and turns, but as long as I'm making overall progress toward my goal, I shouldn't get discouraged. I have days when I... Read more
