Worst Business Trip Ever
Friday, January 28, 2011      3 comments

Most of you know that I travel for work. A lot. And that some of those trips have been doozies (ahem, Panamanian hospital). But this past one takes the cake. The fun began before I even left the U.S. I met up with a bunch of my colleagu... Read more
Wrapping Up the Week and Planning for Next Week
Friday, January 21, 2011      5 comments

This week has been rough. Stupid busy at work, mostly with things that ultimately don't matter. (Isn't that how it always works, though?) Consequently I haven't been paying as much attention to my exercise and nutrition as I would like. I we... Read more

Saturday, January 15, 2011      3 comments

I'll admit it. Don't hate me for it. I like my in-laws. Really, genuinely enjoy their company. But... Spending the day with the whole family can be rough. My in-laws are a close-knit family, so family gatherings generally involve 30... Read more

This past week I have not been getting enough sleep. There, I said it. It's good to have that out in the open, lol. I NEED 8 hours a night. But between one thing and another, I haven't been getting it. Add in long days, more exercise than u... Read more

Tuesday, January 04, 2011      9 comments

Technically I started Spark in November 2009 but I didn't get serious until January 4, 2010, so I'm counting this as my one year Sparkversary. This year I lost 22 pounds, 24 inches, and 2 pants sizes. This isn't bad, but I feel like I co... Read more
Sexy Breakfasts Really Work
Monday, January 03, 2011      7 comments

Last night I had a bout of insomnia. A bad one. And for no good reason. So when I woke up late this morning I faced a choice: rush through my morning and get to work on time or take my time, do things right, and get to work late. The choice... Read more
Starting Over Starts Now (2011 Goals)
Monday, December 27, 2010      7 comments

December was a total wash. I didn't lose but I didn't gain. I didn't watch what I ate or exercise much at all, so this is a miracle. However, I'm getting tired of feeling sluggish. So this lackadaisical attitude ends right here and now. The... Read more

Rough Ride
Sunday, November 14, 2010      3 comments

Friday I took a small spill while riding my brand new bike. As I promised myself - and my fellow Sparklers - I got back on this weekend. Today, specifically. And it was rough. First of all, it took me about a dozen tries and four minutes... Read more
First Bike Ride
Friday, November 12, 2010      2 comments

I bought a bike as my reward for dropping my BMI to overweight, from obese. The bike is a huge reward for a huge step, and will help me continue to lose. This is also a pretty courageous step: I haven't ridden a bike since a bad wipeout when... Read more
