Last day of the month...so I thought doing a "February in review" post would be a good idea. This has definitely been my month of "getting back on track." I'm relieved to feel like I truly am back on track with SP. Many streaks are in pla... Read more

I'm having an in-range day. I'm on the high end, but I am in range. And I accomplished two large cleaning tasks at home today. It was hard but I did it and now they aren't "hanging over my head"...if you know what I mean. Last week, at t... Read more

Interesting day. I got to work and was only the second car there. I wondered if I misunderstood the message on the business phone. We were supposed to call in before coming in just in case they closed due to the ice. I called and the message... Read more

I did C25K D1W1 last night...hooray! I used my free app. I am pretty happy with it. It did not give me verbal cues like it was supposed to, though. I'll have to play with it a little bit and see if I have something set wrong. It didn't matt... Read more

Two days down, a billion to go...no, my life should not be a countdown. Right now, I am feeling like I am "getting through" my days though, instead of living and enjoying them. On the outside, it appears I am living and enjoying them; on the i... Read more
