Day 58 - Staying Strong but not too many alternatives!
Friday, February 27, 2015      0 comments

Today we had a luncheon for Engineers week. Since it was Lent I abstain from meat on Fridays as well as I am not eating any sweets. It was a day that something sweet would be great but I was able to stay strong. I had a ziti dish with sau... Read more

Thursday, February 26, 2015      0 comments

Did you realize this is Engineer's Week. I am the daughter of an engineer and professionally I work with engineering and land surveying organizations. So I am not an engineer but this week is important. Tonight was Engineer's Week NE Care... Read more
Day 56 - All this layering
Wednesday, February 25, 2015      0 comments

With the weather as bad as it has been I am beginning to think that my body thinks it needs the extra cushioning to stay warm and that is why I am plateauing. I am doing the basics but I realize I need to do more. But it is tough with this wea... Read more
Day 55 - Got to do more than 10 minutes a day
Tuesday, February 24, 2015      0 comments

I realize I have hit a plateau and though I am consistently working out for at least 10 minutes a day that is certainly not enough. It is Lent and I am not eating sweets but I am still eating. It has been too cold to go out anywhere so I h... Read more
Day 54 - What do you say about a Monday
Monday, February 23, 2015      1 comments

Today was a Monday! Nothing went horribly wrong but nothing went that terrific either. Did not accomplish what I needed to at work. Several mini crises but nothing too serious. Had an afternoon meeting that went an hour over (maybe even more... Read more
Day 53 - An unproductive day!
Sunday, February 22, 2015      1 comments

After a great day yesterday today was certainly the opposite. Last night's party ended late and certainly have fun drinks which meant today started with a headache. Yesterday I started reading Gone Girl and today I spent most of the day fi... Read more
Day 52 - A great day (a day late)
Sunday, February 22, 2015      1 comments

What a fun and productive day! Though I woke up late I still got in a great workout before heading for some pampering. I had my hair cut and colored, picked up my watches at the jewelers, and then got a mani/pedi. Rushed home to get chang... Read more
Day 51 - Baby its cold outside
Friday, February 20, 2015      0 comments

Wow I can't believe how cold it is. Frustrating morning as I dressed up as a member of my Board was coming in for a meeting. Based on all the snow and cold we have been dressing casual but since it was a Board member coming in. Well she d... Read more
Day 50 - Wow made it to 50 days
Thursday, February 19, 2015      2 comments

I had read that most people abandon their resolutions by February 18th. I think this is the main reason I made it to today. Tonight got out of work at a decent time to go to my in-laws. DH's brother and family are moving to Montana. Our n... Read more
Day 49 - Ash Wednesday
Wednesday, February 18, 2015      2 comments

Overall this should be a good Spark day! Realized I forgot my phone so I walked home to get it and then decided to go to church and get my ashes. Almost had all my steps by 9:30. Since it is Ash Wednesday I abstain from meat and "fast" wh... Read more
Day 48 - Fat Tuesday
Tuesday, February 17, 2015      3 comments

Indulged a bit unnecessarily in advance of Lent. I know it wasn't right but I couldn't resist some sweets. Of course someone mentioned jelly beans on facebook and let's say I am looking forward to Easter! I certainly didn't need cookies, a tw... Read more
Day 47 - Splurge before Lent
Monday, February 16, 2015      2 comments

A bit disappointed in myself as I knowingly went over my calorie count today with two sweets. I didn't eat enough during the day so by the time it came to dinner I was hungry. Made a full meal but they weren't the healthiest choices except... Read more
Day 46 - Another Lazy Snow Day
Sunday, February 15, 2015      1 comments

Woke up to a beautiful blizzard. I mean that. Since I live in the city part of our condo fee takes care of snow removal so we don't have to shovel. And since I don't have to drive anywhere and don't like to drive anyway there is no issue. ... Read more

Hope everyone had a very Happy Valentine's Day! It was a different day! I had planned to get up early, workout, clean a bit and do some errands. Well I woke up early but started watching TV and kept falling asleep. Finally around 1... Read more

Friday, February 13, 2015      1 comments

A day when you receive 2 dozen roses is going to be a good day and it was. Even though it is very cold here overall it was a great day. No major crises at work. Go... Read more
