The Puppies, My Friends, Are Blowin' In the Wind
Saturday, May 16, 2009      2 comments

I was going to put off walking the pups until later - the morning winds were about 24 mph with gust to 40+. Whee! Trees bending down, trash blowing everywhere. I checked the weather reports, and it looked like it wasn't going to slow down any t... Read more
Challenges
Friday, May 15, 2009      2 comments

Not as busy last night as it was the night before (which bit). I'd forgotten my resistance band, so I had to wait to w/o until I got home. No problem - walked the pups a different way thru the neighborhood to mix it up. Rode my bike 10 minutes w... Read more
Tired but slogging on
Thursday, May 14, 2009      2 comments

Slept poorly yesterday after a promising start. I was showered and read to sleep - had packed a meal with both a fruit salad and a mixed greens salad, other healthy munchies. Also ... Read more
Walking at Sunrise
Wednesday, May 13, 2009      2 comments

Stayed up all night. Did the S2S W/O @ 0330 - crunchless abs. Literally dusted off my stationary bike (ker-chew!) and rode it 10 minutes (it calculated 2 miles, after I put in fresh batteries). Walked the pups just after sunrise. Note to self -... Read more
Cramming at the End of the Day
Wednesday, May 13, 2009      1 comments

So, once again, I scrambled to find enough food to meet my minimums at the end of the day. Weird. Started out so well... Walked the pups 2.5 miles this morning while it was cooler. I thought again about going to the movies, but I'd been up ... Read more
S2S Day 9 - Owie
Monday, May 11, 2009      1 comments

Stayed up all night. Didn't mean to, I played an online game and stayed up until 04, then couldn't get to sleep and read. Had to mail off 2 more mooched books. Should have mailed them Saturday before the rates went up, but I was tired, and forg... Read more
Hot Doggie
Monday, May 11, 2009      1 comments

Took the pups to dog class this afternoon - slow walk over to Petsmart since it was nearly 90. The other owners & dogs didn't show up, so we had a private class. We worked on "go to your bed" (blanket), and tricks - dance & twirl (since Shalako ... Read more
I Need Pilates Training
Sunday, May 10, 2009      2 comments

Wow - I just completed day 7's S2S Pilates based abs workout. I'm terrible at it, but muddled thru as best I could. Samurai thinks when I'm on the floor, it's playtime. He kept jumping into my face, all excited. I laughed so hard I had to restar... Read more
Downloading Problems
Friday, May 08, 2009      2 comments

I tried to download S2S Bootcamp Day 6 upper body resistance video last night at work. I started before midnight (10 or so) for a 7 minute video. Got automatically disconnected at one point. Had to start over, running back in to jiggle the curso... Read more
Day 5 S2S Bootcamp
Thursday, May 07, 2009      0 comments

I did the lower body band workout for bootcamp at work. The work computers wouldn't let me see the videos. Finally got out my personal PC laptop, hooked it up to a dialup, and got the video. Took more than 15 minutes to download the video - kept... Read more
Day 4 S2S Bootcamp - ouch!
Wednesday, May 06, 2009      1 comments

Did the ab workout for day 4 today. It's a killer, but I was able to do most of it. Not very gracefully, but, hey, no one saw me except the critters. Who, once again, worried about why mom was crawling on the floor. ... Read more
Day 3 S2S Bootcamp Yes!
Wednesday, May 06, 2009      2 comments

So, I stayed up all night messing around without doing much. Wrapped up the books for bookmooch, took them to the post office and mailed them as soon as it opened. Finally got to sleep 1100 or so. Sprang up (OK, crawled up, propping one eye... Read more
Break on thru to the other side!

Finally broke thru the plateau and lost 4.5 pounds this week. Couldn't believe it when I stepped on the scales this morning. ... Read more
80% Healthy; 20% Fun
Sunday, May 03, 2009      2 comments

I saw this somewhere here on Sparks, and this has become my motto. Last week, I had some chocolate cake. Someone at work said "I can't believe you're eating that!" I replied, "80% healthy and 20% fun - this is my life, not a diet". I try to mak... Read more
In a Hurry
Sunday, May 03, 2009      1 comments

Managed to get someone to do the OT tonight. Still, I came home and was really tired. Never got the books sent off, but I sent delay messages to the moochers and they said they were OK. Just walked the pups @ 2200 - gotta clean up & go to w... Read more
