Reasonable Expectations
Wednesday, February 01, 2017      1 comments

Day 14 - Endless Walking
Saturday, January 14, 2017      2 comments

Today I walked over 17,500 steps. It was a day of returns but given how good the after Christmas deals were I think I ended up with more than I returned I tried to keep it to only practical items. However shoes at 50% off and another 5% added... Read more

I finished my first book of the year. I absolutely LOVE to read but when I do I can't put a book down. Since my to do list is never ending I rarely take a break to read. But this past weekend when I was sick I picked up a book and almost fini... Read more

Rushed home from work to meet the cleaner. Of course he didn't show up but I was home before 6. That never happens. Did a little straightening up and sorting of papers and then decided to do a bootcamp segment. One lead to another. Then... Read more

Tuesday, January 10, 2017      2 comments

I haven't had my usual energetic start to the New Year. Usually I am a bit more focused - perhaps too focused on getting everything done and organized. I have been doing well on the steps and much better on the water. I definitely need to up ... Read more

Day 5 - Racing to the end of the day
Thursday, January 05, 2017      1 comments

I need to become a morning person. I wasted a ton of time this morning at work and now at the end of the day I am racing to get my steps in and drink my water. Why do I need a deadline to get things done and why do I complicate things. I need... Read more

One of my favorite things about Sparkpeople is reading the blogs and comments of all the other Sparkers. It is amazing to me how caring and motivating so many people are. And everyone is so eloquent. There is also something that I gain from a... Read more

Tuesday, January 03, 2017      0 comments

The office was closed for the past week and even though I went in and worked it was definitely tough to be back to the grindstone. Lots of temptations. I was able to skip most of them but I couldn't resist the danish. At least it tasted delic... Read more

Monday, April 04, 2016      3 comments

April is supposed to be the start of Spring so it seemed like a good time to get back Sparking. Today we got 6 inches of snow so I am not sure it is Spring but one can hope. This weekend I got some exercise in. Went for a quick run in the... Read more
