I decided over the weekend that the laundry baskets of clean clothing I have been avoiding for over a month needed to be sorted (Yes, I know, I procrastinate when it comes to putting laundry away). I have been avoiding it for several reasons. ... Read more

I was working with some students this afternoon when a former student came in to visit me with her young daughter. I didn't know she was coming, and I hadn't seen her sin... Read more

I spent a couple of hours yesterday at the Y and tried combining new rowing machine choice and the old strength training routine. I have to say that I am not sure that particular combination is the best thing for me because I am really feeling t... Read more

I have learned that, after a good session with my amazing personal trainer, my body is wired with energy for 10 - 12 hours afterward. It is after 2:00 AM and I find myself in the family room hammering away at the keyboard trying to piece my thou... Read more

Today is going to be very intersting. I have 2 workout appointments at the Y. One with my 12 week program coach and one with my personal trainer. They are purposely scheduled a couple of hours apart so I have some recovery time between session s... Read more

I have been taking the Deep Water Fitness class at my local Y for about 2 months now. It is a great work-out and lots of fun. There are a lot of interesting "water resistance" tools we can use during the class and , since I hadn't yet tried the ... Read more

The amazing part of this whole Spark People process is how much I am changing internally as much as I am externally. Long ago I used to write on a regular basis. It was my therapy, my outlet, and my salvation because it allowed me to releas... Read more

...And I am not sure why. I really am not comfortable when I get like this. I feel all aggitated inside like someone is about to drop a sledge hammer on my head. I hate that feeling. All I know is that my best bet is to make sure I get to ... Read more

As sat drinking my coffee this morning and catching up on the local news, I had the opportunity to reflect on my opportunity to meet a fellow Spark People member yesterday. As often happens in my world, the event was quite random and by total ac... Read more

Hard to believe my eyes when I stepped on the scale this morning for my weekly weigh-in. I was fully expecting to maintain after a 4 pound loss last week, but that was not what happened. Gratefully, I managed to lose another 3 pounds this week, ... Read more
Who's that in the mirror?
Saturday, April 27, 2013      2 comments

I woke up this morning at an unusually early hour (especially for a Saturday). 5 AM. I have no idea why, but I was pretty bolt-upright in bed. So I got up and was wandering around the house when I passed in front of the mirror in the living room... Read more

Lots of interesting experiences today. I had the opportunity to go to our State capital and lobby legislators to support a cause near and dear to my heart, services for my homeless students. It was a very good learning experience and I got... Read more

Well, I have decided that if it isn't attached physcally to my body, I am probably going to lose it, misplace it, or leave it in an obscure place...and it doesn't really matter what "it" is. For the last several months (over 6 for sure), I ... Read more

I am finding that this journey is full of interesting observations, perplexing "aha" moments, and quixotic questions about what the numbers on the clothes on the store racks (aka sizes) really mean. It is almost comical because I have never had ... Read more
