The week behind and ahead
Saturday, August 24, 2013      4 comments

This week's destination for the 5% challenge is Fiji. I went looking for pictures and now I'm sad that I can't actually go there. How beautiful is that beach? I also found an underwater hotel that looks really cool. How awesome would that be... Read more

This week's travel destination for the 5% challenge is Mumbai. I had a harder time finding a great picture this week. I finally chose this bridge, the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. This week's challenge is one of my favorites - freggies. I love... Read more
Tread lightly

So a follow up of sorts - my feet are much improved but I still had quite a bit of pain getting out of bed this morning. My arm was extra painful yesterday (I think I over did it on Friday) so I didn't do any of my stretching and after I iced m... Read more

This week's background is Sydney, Australia, our destination for this leg of the 5% challenge. Beautiful isn't it? I hope to sleep well this week. Last blog I promised/threatened a blog about my feet. Fascinating reading for y'all I know... Read more
July recap and stupid dog
Friday, August 02, 2013      8 comments

No, she's not really a stupid dog. She's just a sweet, loving, smart, fuzzy butt that gets carried away and makes bad decisions. I’m going to try to keep this from being a never-ending blog. I do tend to get a little carried away, I thi... Read more
Summer 5% challenge - day 2
Sunday, July 28, 2013      8 comments

This was supposed to get written yesterday, but it just didn’t happen. Today is now day 2 of the summer 5% challenge. Once again I am a teddy bear (GO teddies!). I need to make this challenge work for me. The last challenge (spring to summer... Read more
Fitness tracker question
Thursday, July 18, 2013      6 comments

I'm going to throw this out into the Sparkverse and hope for an answer since I haven't been able to find one on my own. I've been using my dreadmill, oops, my treadmill, instead of walking outside. I enter that for fitness minutes on the t... Read more

Just picked up my Bountiful Baskets bounty. Loads of freggies for the upcoming week. Now I just have to figure out what to do with Swiss Chard - I got two heads of it and I've barely heard of it. ... Read more
rough week and counting my blessings
Monday, June 24, 2013      9 comments

I'm not sure where I'm going with this, so bear with me. I have another blog I'm thinking about, but I'm not there yet so I may actually write two this week. Or the other one will go the way of so many of my blogs - they just kind of drift awa... Read more
Tomorrow is a new day - June goals
Friday, May 31, 2013      11 comments

So May was a bust. I think I lost a couple pounds, but I've been bouncing within the same 5 pounds or so for a while so I'm not real excited about that. I didn't work out as much as I wanted to, and food was totally inconsistent. Nearly perfe... Read more
Raining in my basement
Tuesday, May 21, 2013      12 comments

Sunday morning I woke up to a slight plumbing issue. It was raining in my basement. Well, not raining, more like drizzling - but still not something my basement is supposed to be doing. So I shut the water off (actually had the little guy do ... Read more

6.5 days with kids and 7.5 total days until I am officially on summer break. WOOHOO! It is sooooo time. I can feel it in my every fiber, and the kids are relentless about reminding me of the short time we have left. Of course they figure we'... Read more
Getting better & a big decision
Thursday, May 02, 2013      5 comments

So far this week has been much better than last week. I can actually see over the top of my to do pile now, and I was less far behind when I left work yesterday than when I got there, so that's progress. I'm still frustrated and overwhelmed b... Read more
bad week, animal abandonment, and a little perspective
Monday, April 29, 2013      8 comments

Last week wasn't a good week. Nothing big happened, but each day brought an avalanches of minor irritations, annoyances, and grievances. Any one (or few) alone would have just rolled off with barely a notice, in fact the first group pretty muc... Read more
Thursday on a Tuesday
Tuesday, April 23, 2013      7 comments

So I think I've mentioned a time or three that Thursday is my nemesis. It's the one day each week that I just seem to be spinning my wheels instead of getting anywhere. It's like that's the day each item on my to do list starts generating offs... Read more
