After closing in on my all time high (1 pound shy), I have been unhappy and uncomfortable. The last year and a half with a full time job and returning to school for my MBA have contributed to the weight gain. I had a 3 week break from school a... Read more
Hi everybody, my name is Theo
Tuesday, May 01, 2012      2 comments

Hi everybody. My name is Theo. I am a dachshund/boxer mix (at least that's what they think I am, I don't think I have any boxer in me, but I'm definitely not a full doxie either). My mommy and daddy came and picked me out from a bunch of dogg... Read more

Having a nice time on our RV trip - working our way VERY slowly to Minneapolis to meet up with friends. Finally got a (relative) break from the heat in Sioux City. Luckily our alternator on the RV picked Sioux City to go out. We were able to ... Read more
Six weeks of RV Travel and somewhat limited Spark time!
Friday, July 15, 2011      3 comments

I am so blessed that I work for a company that allows me to work from my RV for a period of time each summer. Because my husband is much older than me and already retired, this is a great solution for our situation. This allows us time togethe... Read more
Time to get a grip....
Thursday, July 07, 2011      3 comments

I have been out of control for the last month with my eating. I don't know what's going on. I confess to having a little "superiority" complex when it came to losing weight. I never gained much weight until the last 8 years or so, and even th... Read more

Me and my hubby with Zack after his high school graduation last week. I HATE having my picture taken, but here I am. Zack is wearing a goofy fake mustache (he is always the class clown) that he wore thru the entire ceremony. ... Read more

I woke up before my normal 3:45 am and was on the treadmill by 3:15. It felt good today and I had my half hour in before I knew it. I finished a HUGE project at work that I had to finish before I could take the rest of the week off. After I f... Read more
Love my new Runkeeper App!
Saturday, April 23, 2011      2 comments

After reading some of the blogs on here, I downloaded the Runkeeper App for my Droid 2 phone. I love it! It was very accurate, using the GPS and even worked while in my pocket. Most mornings I use the treadmill and don't need the tracking, bu... Read more
Pat's Run Results
Saturday, April 16, 2011      2 comments

Well - I didn't hit my goal (not even close), but considering that I could not train for 4 of the 6 weeks, it wasn't too bad. I finished the 4.2 mile race in 51 minutes and 42 seconds, which was a 12 minute and 19 second pace. My original goal... Read more

A time for change
Saturday, March 05, 2011      2 comments

Today was a good day, but a day of change and some mixed emotions. Today was my last day of work at a second job that I have worked at off and on for almost 12 years. I have only been working every other Saturday for the last 3 years or so, ... Read more
A Tribute to my Mom
Wednesday, January 05, 2011      4 comments

Thirty years ago today, when I was 15, my mom unexpectedly passed away in her sleep. It is hard to believe that she has been gone twice as long as she was alive in my lifetime. I miss her in the way a 15 year old misses her because I was never... Read more
