Hi Sparkers. Today was a workout for the record book. I got in my running training (2nd 5K is in one week), did my jump rope training, and then muscle work. If you look at my tracker, I just lump the muscle work into slow calisthenics - the reas... Read more

The local runner's club does a Watermelon series. Four Saturdays at 7 a.m. (Florida gets hot fast!) and then they serve watermelon afterwards. I can make 3 out of the four races, so, I'm setting my time goals. That has an interesting way of gett... Read more

I may need some ideas! I'm more organized than last year, and next year will be easy because my system will be refined! This year I've got some serious sorting going on. Sedentary stuff! So far my workout is to get up and walk across t... Read more

On our next concert we are doing the Star Wars Suite - it's not an arrangement, the John Williams stuff! And my husband is right, it's hard! I will miss the first rehearsal visiting my college kid, but I'm taking my violin with me along with m... Read more

I hope you have all had a great holiday time. I was able to maintain weight while on a trip to visit in NC. I have not tracked fitness, but I overcame the new rubber smell of the hotel fitness room and used it once. I used the weight machine! I ... Read more

I do miss you guys, but I find I spend less time on SP, and that's especially true when I don't bring my computer home from work. I tend to work more now that the kids are out of the house (1 married and out of state, the other in college). ... Read more

I hope you are all well. I have been exercising but not tracking it. I have been eating too - I'm catching times when I completely forget about my goals. I'm choosing to shift my attitude and keep working on it. There is a way to my best health.... Read more

So, I keep going awol - I just want you to know that I'm still on the path. Today didn't get in any exercise - it was back to work day. I saw 7 clients (my usual is 6) met with our Cantor for lunch as he is leaving, and then worked on the work m... Read more
