So, I think the bug is over -- blech. That wasn't much fun as I had one string trio gig with the cramping and another band gig with mad dashes to the portapotties! So, the reorganizing is continuing and I've reset the goals on my spark page... Read more

First day, so good -- I stayed up and got about 25 minutes of a workout in by 5:45 a.m. then it was off to wait at the bus stop for/with my kid. I got in some brief stuff when I came back into the house (see Jan to June focus journal--link is on... Read more

Sunday, February 14, 2010      2 comments

I have found that much of my energy this week has been directed to dealing with two bullies. I'm not in the clear from them, but I keep addressing it with logic. My physical reaction includes a lot of shaking and mental preoccupation. This... Read more

wrestling back on track, need a different track?
Wednesday, January 27, 2010      5 comments

I am tired of my "don't wanna" excuses, not just for exercise but for housework and other organizational stuff. I haven't been off track long, but after playing the opera on Saturday night, it's been nothing but tired. Everytime they talk about ... Read more

My weight isn't changing, but I keep wearing things that I haven't been able to wear! Lately it's been tops. It feels good to take a tag off of something that has been sitting in the closet and wear it for the first time! I'm in a time squeeze... Read more

Tuesday, January 19, 2010      5 comments

Every third week of exercise I'm putting an emphasis on yoga. I'm happy for that because my left leg is hurting and stiff from the beginner running training. I'm convinced on an intuitive level that "downward facing dog' is going" is going to fi... Read more

or at least it's doable -- I pulled out a size 14 outfit that I haven't worn in a long time. It has a long top and knit overcoat, but the pants are comfy -- I'm not pushing on the seams! Wheeeeee, the drop down is happening from 18, and maybe I'... Read more

I found a pair of exercise pants that I haven't worn in a long time -- and they fit! I have been enjoying how my winter coat fits over my butt this year, because it was awful when it didn't. These are little bits of proof that my efforts are mak... Read more

OMG!! People always mention all the food and gaining weight on a cruise. The reason why became immediately evident! I wasn't expecting lunch but we were told lunch was ready. We were greeted with a small glass of champagne -- and then the multit... Read more

in 2010! I'm still feeling crappy, but hopefully the saltwater air of the cruise will knock it out of me. I'm planning to take my old fashioned system of keeping track which is a calendar. We have a friend staying at the house with the kids (ol... Read more
