Just looked at my last blog-before the Crossfit games. I am proud to say that I participated well, and although I really dislike the pictures taken of me during the games (usually with a horribly funny face, sweating from shoulders to navel, tig... Read more
Despite much trepidation I signed up for the Crossfit games at my box-not the nation wide registration but just the teams at our box. Really glad I did, I'm pushing myself out of my comfort zone BIG TIME and although I still get frustrated that ... Read more
get er done
Picked up extra work this week and last week. My office is only about 150 square feet with not much room to move around and mostly desk work. No official breaks in a 12 hour period, can get out if not too busy but only briefly. Often I find it d... Read more
DOMS and Cholesterol: the Highs and the Lows this week
So...I have been CrossFitting (but not regularly) for the last nine months. When I was younger I was really active-swimming, softball, racquetball, bootcamp type exercises and I LOVE lifting weights. Over the last 10 years or so I have fallen o... Read more
I'm BAaaack...sort of.
So, haven't blogged since 2013 (!!!!) but doesn't mean I haven't done anything. Wish I could say since my last blog that I lost 30 lbs, became super strong and stress free and won the lottery. In reality I am still evolving and that's okay.

I am feeling very lazy, unmotivated and frustrated.
No, wait. That is not entirely true.
I am motivated. I am tired of feeling sluggish. I am tired of having difficult breathing (what's up with this asthma like sensation?). I am not ha... Read more
all clear-now to get my head in the game.
I have been very MIA. The last posting I blogged was after my foot surgery in March, and here it is September already. But honestly, I had not much good to say in that time. I have spent countless months of frustration with the lack of quick hea... Read more
change my focus...
So, this is why I have to change my focus. Don't know why my picture posted upside down :)
For the last few weeks after making the appointment for my "elective" bun... Read more
on and off track
I realized it has been more than one month since I last blogged. So much has happened since then, but so much feels the same. I haven't changed one inch for better or worse; haven't lost or gained more than the same five pounds despite holiday e... Read more
why I've been too busy to blog.
Looking at my page on my computer today instead of on my dumbphone, I realized it had been OVER one month since I blogged. So, to keep current and explain myself, here it is.
In the last month (since the week before Thanksgiving) I have: quit ... Read more
Gotta go so here's the superfast update in point form.
-son is better. Kids are back to school except for all these three day weekends for holidays and teacher institute. Good for them, bad for my schedule.

still sick but improving.
My son is home again from school today for the fourth time this week with the worst asthma attack he has ever had. I managed to keep him out of the hospital (I'm a pediatric intensive care nurse), but no sleep for me or my DH to give him breathi... Read more
finally! an update!!
Every time I log in (which is rare since I've been logging on my dumb phone) I see I haven't made a blog entry in a long time. So to ease my guilt and join the land of the Sparkies I'm doin' it.
Since last post-boards passed, license applied... Read more

Hi Sparkies! not much to say and no time to chat. I do miss reading all my SP blogs and hit them when I can from the dumbphone.
