Thursday, March 03, 2016      2 comments

Another good day. Making some good food choices today. Great job on stairs but was short the steps. But I did work on drinking some more water. I think the majority of my steps were from trips to the bathroom. It is really tough to dr... Read more

Great day. Made good food choices including lots of fruit. Hit my 25 flights of stairs. And made it over 10,000 steps by talking on the phone with a friend and pacing (sure the people below didn't love but I didn't have shoes on thank goodnes... Read more
Day 60 - Glad February is OVER!
Monday, February 29, 2016      4 comments

The shortest month also had the least activity. Today I was inspired to end the month with a bang. Work out for 50 minutes. So surprised but tired of the scale staying in one place despite my efforts to do better. Lots of fruits and vegetabl... Read more

Tuesday, February 23, 2016      2 comments

I want to be more consistent in my blogging as it keeps me on track. I am really finding relevance in the Spark articles. For lunch DH offered to bring me lunch so I quickly reviewed the menu of Cosi, where he was. Of course I went to the... Read more

Yesterday I missed my 10 minutes of exercise and the blog. I forgot my computer at work and was charging the Surface but I started reading my book on the couch. Then I fell asleep. Not proud but I could have skipped it again today but I got i... Read more
Day 46 - A guilty treat that was fulfilling
Monday, February 15, 2016      0 comments

Our office isn't closed for President's Day (I am not quite sure why not since it is a Federal Holiday) so I made it a casual day and bought everyone lunch. There were only 5 of us but it took forever to pick what kind of food to get and then w... Read more

Saturday, February 13, 2016      1 comments

I can't believe the temperatures here in Boston. -4 and that is without the wind chill factor. I can hear the wind coming through the fireplace. Crazy. I got dressed with plans to go into the office but I decided not to venture out. Ins... Read more

Friday, February 12, 2016      2 comments

Today got nothing I wanted to accomplish done. I went looking for a gift card and just made a mess of everything. It seems like I have an endless to-do list. My one accomplishment was to work out when I got home from work at 8:30. I just... Read more

Today I got about 1/8 of the things I had planned to get done today but that is okay because I went out for a run! Only 15 minutes but that is 15 more minutes than I have run yet this year. It took me forever to get out the door but I actually... Read more

Day 26 - Keeping an even keel
Tuesday, January 26, 2016      4 comments

I am envious of those folks who don't let things get a rise out of them. I am more quick to emotion and it is not to my benefit. Lots of politics going around at work and I really wish I could calmly deal with them. But then I wouldn't be me I... Read more
