Overdone and Under Covers
Thursday, January 19, 2012      4 comments

Got the sore throat, stuffy nose, achy body kind of cold. Took off half a day from work, trying to rest. I know, I know, I know, there's no coincidences ... increase in activity / exercise and drastic decrease in sleep = overdone and under... Read more

"Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint." (Mark Twain) ... or, in my case ... be careful about reading serving sizes! I just ate a full piece of ham steak (it was about 5 ounces). I read the front and it said "S... Read more
Roller Skating & 5K
Monday, January 16, 2012      2 comments

Went roller skating with the kids tonight - loved it. About 40 minutes and 280ish calories burned. I actually tried the blades this time and it seemed easy enough. Also signed up for 5k training, although right now I'm feeling tired and ... Read more
Closer to my weight goal & a little worried ...

Just putting it out there - I'm just a few pounds short of my weight goal, which is great, but I'm a little worried that once I hit that mark, the "challenge" will be over or "complete". I didn't want to see this as a challenge so much, but I k... Read more
Need more sleep

A really bad habit of mine is going to sleep too late. I will get in bed around 10 but then I'll read or watch a movie (or play Words With Friends), and before I know it, it's 1AM. I love being stimulated and "doing things". I know the i... Read more
I don't know how to jog! ... but I just did for 6 minutes!

About 30 seconds into my first 6-minute attempt at jogging tonight (this was a suggested cardio exercise in my fitness tracker), I realized I am a walker, not a jogger. About 1 minute into it, I was checking my time. I was jogging along, a... Read more
Work = workout

Okay, so part of my job at work (maintenance) requires me to keep the grounds clean, neat, safe, etc. As a nonprofit org with little money and poor prior management (not bashing, just truth), this meant the bills weren't being paid and services... Read more
Yikes, ... outside of my "comfort zone"
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      1 comments

Oh wow. It seems a little silly, but I feel nervous about being in the GLBT Spark Network: We are Family team's spotlight today. It's a great feeling on one hand - on the other, it's a lump in my throat! Ohmygosh, outside of my comfort zone and... Read more
Sunny, warm & Walking!

Blessed with the first sunny and warm day of the year - it's gorgeous out there. So I walked to pick up my daughter from school. She was happy to walk with me. It felt great. I even had a few minutes, while I was walking, to call my sister and... Read more
