Where the heck I've been
Friday, December 18, 2009      9 comments

Hello Spark peeps, It's been a while since I've blogged. Been ultra busy. Been sorta bad. Heh. My mother had back surgery just after Thanksgiving, and has been running me like a racehorse. Between doing things for her and Christmas... Read more
I am Weeble!

Weebles Wobble but they don't fall down! Remember that? That's me. That's me on my stability ball at work. I have mastered the art of perching on the ball and doing my work and not falling on my arse! I can spin to answer the phone or r... Read more
Today we spy on a new natural habitat of the stability ball.
Wednesday, December 02, 2009      9 comments

This is Brock Buttneau and today we seek out the secondary habitat of the well-known stability ball. Often found in the expansive gymnasiums of the suburbs and home gyms of the weekend warriors, it is normally a solitary creature. However ther... Read more

I've named it Igor. It has a monstrous shape and produces some scary things, so I think it's appropriate. I love him. Igor is my new Dyson. Yes, a vacuum. I love this vacuum. I have used this thing daily since I acquired it last Friday... Read more
Black Friday! WooHOO!
Friday, November 27, 2009      9 comments

Got out there for some Black Friday mania. I didn't do the die-hard thing and go to the 3am sales. I had my eye on a Dyson vacuum at Target which is really close to my house. So I got out there about 4:30 since they opened at 5. HOLY COW, th... Read more
Boo Swim Update Thanks for the Spark Vibes!
Saturday, November 21, 2009      6 comments

David had four races today (you'd think it be a short meet but we were there nearly 7 hours.) It was a BIG meet. He dropped 8 whole seconds off his individual medley! EIGHT! Qualified easily for state championships in Feb with that time. ... Read more

It will be a busy weekend for us. Boo swims both days at a meet. Say your prayers for him, he NEEDS some SPEED! He will swim his first 100m butterfly, pray he doesn't run out of gas on that second half. :) For us that means a lot of shu... Read more

David won runner up for high point winner in his age group at this week's swim meet. WooHOO! It was unexpected as there are usually some fast swimmers. I think with the co... Read more
Twenty pounds gone! Empowerment through c25K!
Friday, November 13, 2009      16 comments

Well, today the scale decided to tease me and told me that to date I have lost 20 pounds. Truth be told, it was probably more than that as I wouldn't set foot on that scale early on. It may jump back up in the next few days as my frame hides b... Read more
Visual Motivational Cues or Can Your Keychain Save Your A$$
Thursday, November 12, 2009      12 comments

The wind is biting and the climb is treacherous. We’ve been running for hours. I can no longer remember if we are chasing or being pursued. All I know is that it’s critical and danger is imminent; whatever happens we must not stop or descend... Read more
Flirting isn't easy

So today I figured it was time. I'd been noticing on my walks how my eyes would stray in that direction. Yet I wasn't feeling confident enough. Each day as I slimmed down and shaped up, I felt maybe...maybe today I'll do it. Then I would chi... Read more
Body Part Love: Shoulders - It's about balance, photographic proof!
Monday, November 09, 2009      9 comments

My shoulders have taken a lot of flack in the last year. They, along with the twins have been cursed as they would not fit into size L or XL shirts last summer. Even without the additional padding there were times when the breadth of them was ... Read more

Today, I was to help out my mom with some landscaping. However, we started with a craft show at a nearby community center. I would hardly say "crafts" it was mostly beaded jewelry and precious few ornaments. Still, I fell in love. I ... Read more

That scale is soooo going to give up another pound by this weekend. I'm THIS close to a solid 20. Grrrrr. I feel like a game show contestant when I post a weigh in. I'm never quite sure if I really lost that pound, but yes, I'm going... Read more
Yikes! It's going on Christmas and I'm trying on swimsuits.
Thursday, November 05, 2009      8 comments

My husband told me we were headed to the coast in July. *hyperventilates* Now normally this would please many a wife. A trip, a vacation somewhere warm and sunny is usually tops on anyone's list. Not mine. Not in the last five to seven ... Read more
