Kenya Decides
Monday, March 04, 2013      5 comments

So my country Kenya goes to the polls today. The last time we voted in 2007, things did not turn out too well. We ended up with the worst nightmare this country has ever faced - post election violence. We have been praying for a really long time... Read more

Just received an email from Real Age wishing me a happy birthday. According to them, even though my biological age is 41, my real age is 34. That sounds just about right to me. Take their on line quiz and find out your real age.... Read more

I've always bragged about how I make it a point to sleep for at least 8 hours every night. I started tracking my sleep using my fit bit last week and so far I am averaging slightly less than 6 hours per night. I was even more shocked to discove... Read more

I work in a very big institution where I don't necessarily know everyone well, except for those in my department and those that I interact with frequently. Yesterday as I was heading to my car, two ladies come up to me to ask me what I have done... Read more

Just a quick one - I recently blogged about the difference in steps between my Fitbit Ultra and my Omron pedometer. Over the past two days, the difference in readings is much smaller. I'll wait and see how this continues to play out. On the... Read more

So today is the first day of the term for my boys. They have been home for almost two months. When my alarm rang at 3.45a.m, even before I could jump out of bed, my 8-year old DS walks into my room fully dressed in his school uniform and r... Read more
I Think I Did Ok For The Holidays
Friday, January 04, 2013      4 comments

My workouts were not as intense during the holidays as they'd been through the year. On most days all I could do was walk because of my back issues. But I'm proud of the fact that exercising was still very important to me during the holidays and... Read more

My BIL bought me a FitBit Ultra for Christmas (looks like everyone in the family knows me very well). I have been using an Omron pedometer for about three years now (I just love it!) Its a bit big compared to the fitbit but it has served me real... Read more

Hi Sparkies, I have been MIA as far as blogging is concerned for a really long time. I had my busy season in mid July to mid August and it was impossible to blog. Then in the process of trying to be an excellent employee, I triggered some seriou... Read more

Just completed my third week running (woohoo!). I run on alternate days (three times a week) and I have not reached the point where I really enjoy it yet. I am hoping to get there and I know that the only way to get there is to keep at it, be co... Read more

Just a quick WooHoo moment.... A new colleague at work was trying to describe me to my boss since he didn't know my name. According to my boss, the colleague said that he had been assisted by "the slim lady in our office." So my boss tries ... Read more
