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

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

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

80% Healthy; 20% Fun

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

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

Fell asleep this morning while trying to be online @ SP. Put the computer to the side, forget to put it in sleep mode, but did have the sound off. So I was able to sleep. Ya! Had a Sonic grilled chicken Santa Fe salad last night - one of t... Read more

Slow night so far. Usual mix of patients, plus just a few with sniffles, cough, etc worried about the flu. Two possible cases in New Mexico today, not verified yet. Not near here (yet). Everyone at work is washing and rewashing hands more often,... Read more

Got a lot of stuff done last night, slept all day again. Got up in time to take the pups down the Long Leash on Life - wholistic pet foods, toys, and gadgets. It's where I get their Primal food - based on BARF (bones and real food). They love it... Read more

Didn't gain or lose any weight this week. Boo. Fell yesterday walking the pups (never walk on gravel roads without paying attention to the potholes). Not hurt bad, just aches here and there (which are worse today than yesterday, but still not b... Read more
Heeling VS Loose Leash
Sunday, April 26, 2009      1 comments

Took the pups to dog class today. They actually walked over on the coupler. Using the twitch to keep Samurai's attention really helps - he doesn't lunge forward so much, and Shalako doesn't lag as much. Today's lessons were on heeling with... Read more
