Oops. Unintentionally fell of the face of Spark! Unfortunately, the giant work project kicked my ass. I wound up exhausted, stressed, you name it. On top of that, the hubs started a new job. Which is awesome in many ways! He loves the company, i... Read more

So, last week. Not my best. Work kicked my booty, I just wasn't able to focus on anything not work, and thus didn't do much else. So, I'm moving on. I can't change last week. I must focus on the future and try to be positive! Over the week... Read more

There has been both good and bad this week. The bad is mainly that I will only get two runs in this week. I know, that is something I really need to work on. I know that part of it is the unseasonable warmth that's going on. I am not a warm weat... Read more

I'm already feeling the effects of this week. So sleepy! I wanted to go to bed extra early tonight, but I forgot that I had a meeting. I won't be getting to bed too late, but since I have to be up by 5 the earlier the better. I also try to wake ... Read more

I survived the week. I made it down a bit, but not where I wanted to be. I guess considering that I was sitting much more this week, I was setting the bar a little high. Plus, down is always better than up! I didn't make it to four runs, ju... Read more

To some degree anyway. Work was a bit challenging. Started by taking care of something that someone was supposed to already have taken care of. Then, I settled in to work on CAD. For those who don't know, that is Computer Aided Drafting. In... Read more

Day two of the new week. More sitting than the last couple of weeks that's for sure! Yesterday was good for eating and working out. Though Sundays seem to bring out every procrastinating fiber of my being. I like being on my own time, answ... Read more

All right...determined to make this week amazing. I just gave the hubs an exfoliating back massage. Now that he has a more physical job, I thought this would be nice so he could relax and nap before his other gig. I am going to nap with him, sin... Read more
not the best week
Saturday, March 03, 2012      3 comments

A physically demanding work week alongside that time of month (well, technically that time of the quarter for me) is not ideal. I get so tired during that time (not to mention crabby and clumsy) that this week was a major challenge. Thursday, I ... Read more

So, didn't feel so great over the weekend. I thought I was okay on Monday, so I went to work, but didn't make halfway through the day before I was doubled over. Bah. I've been about 50/50 on food. I do fine until dinner. I really just need to ma... Read more

A little up and down over the last 24 hours. Yesterday was a bit stressful at work (as many Fridays are), trying to get everything wrapped up before leaving for the weekend. I managed to stay within my calories, though lunch was a little rough. ... Read more

So, we are working on a major project at work. Ten-weeks, very physically and mentally demanding. One of the project leaders is very much the type for whom food=love. Sometimes it's nice. Key word being sometimes. When I got back from working in... Read more

So, I had a rough year, and Spark was one of the things I pushed aside. However, I really, really, for really real need to get my weight back down. My back is finally healed (no more doctor visits! Down to almost half the number of pills!), but ... Read more

So, I am really buckling down. I had to give in and get a pair of "big girl" jeans to get me by at work. While they are certainly much more comfortable than cramming myself into one of my current pairs (a couple of which I basically ruined by ... Read more
where is my motivation?
Friday, January 14, 2011      3 comments

Seriously, I don't know where it went! I think because I've had such a rough time for a while, it is really hard to get back on the wagon. So, I rejoined some C25K groups so that I have some more accountability with my running for a start.... Read more
