Today was a tough day for me, but I kind of knew it would be. I have made my bare minimum step count, and I drank my water. Both were achieved after 10:30 PM. I had to wait until after dinner to do my "thing" today, because it was vacuuming. I s... Read more

There is not really much to say about today. It was "warmer" this morning, at -18C. The plow has been by our road so that makes driving a bit easier. It hasn't snowed today. ... Read more
I am the Sink Rinser

Today we got lots of snow again, but I got up early with DH and went to the gym. I figured since I have my personal training session tomorrow followed by Step class, I would skip today's Step class and do a treadmill workout instead. That worked... Read more

When my son was younger, I had to navigate the education system to try to get him the accommodations he needed for all sorts of things that never would have been acknowledged in my day. Except giftedness. But learning disorders and ADD weren't u... Read more

I am managing with all my goals except knitting, though I think I have been unintentionally slacking with team communication. It occurs to me that maybe switching from communication as a goal to knitting as a goal (in the Hall of Measures, for H... Read more

Cooked a crockpot meal, which was my "thing" today. I made a seasoned pork rib roast with root vegetables. I also got my steps in by walking laps of the kitchen/living room to music. I had downloaded a couple of new songs I wanted to try out in ... Read more

So I was bouncing merrily along with meeting all my goals and commitments and then I woke up one morning and... blah. I've got a big black dog smothering me (did I mention I'm a cat person?) and now I don't care about anything anymore. Here... Read more
Step It Up!

Funny how a new year can really change things. I feel like the smooth sailing I was used to has been shaken up on all fronts. I can identify where some of it is coming from, but not all of it. Step class now goes from very basic to cr... Read more
Optimism, Sort of

I'm finding it difficult to be positive today, so I read an article on SparkPeople about how optimism leads to better health than pessimism. www.sparkpeople.com/reso

Progress versus Perfection... Wait, What?
Sunday, January 19, 2014      2 comments

This was going to be a blog about the difference between "good" and "perfect" (as Voltaire said, the Perfect is the enemy of the Good) and somehow I meant to tie in happiness, but then I just couldn't stop thinking about this teacher I once had ... Read more
A Good Week! But... Can We Talk?

Well, this week was a good one for me. I found the Hogwarts Challenge team to be a good motivation for me, tracking three measures -- the number of measures is mandatory, but they are three things of my own choosing -- and also joining the ... Read more

I only got my FitBit One in June, so this 2013 Activity Summary represents about six months of FitBit usage. The text says: "In 2013, you traveled 695 miles. Th... Read more

Today I vacuumed the stairs. And a little bit more while I had the vacuum out. So that was good. I drank a bunch of water, about the equivalent of six cups. I made a dedicated effort at the end of the day to finish a bottle of water I took ... Read more
How Do You Achieve Your Goals?

So I guess today I paid for my workout yesterday. I paid in tiredness. I paid in soreness. I paid in "not getting anything done". Except... It's not ALL bad. As part of the Hogwarts Challenge team, I joined a procrastination accou... Read more

It's been a while since I wrote about my adventures in fitness -- mostly because I haven't been having any! But today we are getting back into the swing of things after the hectic holiday season, and today I was introduced to the world of C... Read more
