I really should blog more often
Monday, June 27, 2011      6 comments

I really enjoy reading other Sparker's blogs, but don't get that motivated to write my own that often. On the other hand I do think I could journal more, and that blogging would help with that. So what to do? Perhaps this could be my goal for... Read more
Almost done with the May Challenge....
Monday, May 30, 2011      3 comments

I'm going to have to say I feel like I had some mixed results. For the most part, I stuck to the challenge, and did attempt more resistance training. That said, I don't really feel like I was able to really go all in with the training li... Read more
Continuing on in May
Sunday, May 22, 2011      5 comments

Another week down of increased resistance training. So I may not be a hard-core hard body, but at least I've stuck to my goal of getting in more sessions per week. And someone at work actually asked me if i "was still losing weight". I had to... Read more

Quick May update 5/16/11
Monday, May 16, 2011      4 comments

Last week I think I actually got in 4 resistance workouts, go me! Not all were hardcore (probably NONE were really hardcore) but I feel like I'm getting leaner and feeling stronger. Someone at work asked me if I was still losing weight. I to... Read more
Quick May Progress report, 5/5/11
Thursday, May 05, 2011      7 comments

Oh, It's Cinco de Mayo! Time for guacamole..... Or maybe not! So I did the bodyfat test at the trainer's last night to get a baseline, and was pleasantly surprised that I was at 22.3%....This scale gives lots of data points, so I may ... Read more
May goal
Sunday, May 01, 2011      3 comments

For May my goal is adding more resistance training into the mix. I've been coasting on once a week with my trainer, and while that is fine for maintaining my current level of fitness, I want to push this up a notch. So I've been doing a ... Read more
So far, so good, April goal update
Sunday, April 10, 2011      5 comments

I have been back down in my lower range this week, I'm not sure if it's just the normal hormonal weight swing, putting the focus on the portion sizes, or eating more asparagus, or perhaps all of the above....I suppose it doesn't really matter mu... Read more
Goal for April
Saturday, April 02, 2011      7 comments

I've seen many posts and blogs about Sparkers making goals for April, and thinking about it, it makes sense. Spring feels like it's here, (as it is!) and that means it's a time of renewal, new life, so why not breathe some new life into the Spa... Read more
Is there a connection?
Saturday, March 26, 2011      7 comments

So I was looking at my quick tracking for fruits and veggies lately...I've really been eating a lot of those, up to 10 servings a day, and also am noticing that my weight ticker has taken a nose dive....think there is a connection? My calories ... Read more
planning for my day off and random musings...
Sunday, March 13, 2011      3 comments

and it may not go as planned, but I'll give it a try....I'd like to ski in the morning, if the weather is good. Right now I hear the wind picking up, it's really cloudy and looks like a storm is hitting, but I think tomorrow may be nicer, if no... Read more
5 years of Sparking (could it really have been that long?)
Friday, February 18, 2011      4 comments

Well the actual anniversary came and went without my noticing, but I've been Sparking for 5 years now! Hard to believe....I've learned so much, "met" so many wonderful and supportive people, made many healthy changes, and have been maintaining ... Read more
low stress day!
Thursday, February 10, 2011      3 comments

I had a short day today (another meeting, but one I arranged, and 2 of the principals could only stay until 2:30, since I had to meet them in a different part of town, I ended my day then!) Wow what a nice afternoon I had! The meeting was very... Read more
Work stress challenge compromise
Tuesday, February 08, 2011      3 comments

So I knew it would be a long day at work, I have a monthly meeting I had to attend that goes until 4:30, and I usually get off at 4. Well today it went late, and I stayed after to clear up some questions I had, so I ended up leaving work closer... Read more
Stress-Busting Challenge: week 4 the wrap up
Sunday, February 06, 2011      2 comments

Overall, I think this challenge has been a success. Have I eliminated stress? No. But I can see when I'm feeling it, use some techniques to lessen the anxiety (like the breathing, and yoga) and I can allow myself some freedom to not be perfect... Read more
