SparkCoach and wasting my time
Monday, August 13, 2012      1 comments

I am trying out this Spark Coach thingie. I'm into Day 5 and it's not that different than regular Spark People which I tend to ignore when I get busy. As I did with Spark Coach this weekend. Not sure it's much of a coach if it doesn't help me... Read more

Wednesday, August 24, 2011      3 comments

Well, I have now attended my first two classes of grad school. One Monday night and one Tuesday night. The classes themselves were not stressful. Far from it. But the family events that occurred during the classes were incredibly stressful. ... Read more

Monday, August 08, 2011      1 comments

Not just for the kids, either. For me, too. I am finally going back for my MBA. A little stress over tuition. A lot of stress of the course load. Some stress over the youngest one entering middle school and starting his school soccer career... Read more

Thursday, July 28, 2011      1 comments

I have signed my family and myself up for the October 5K for the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure. It gives me a tangible goal for which to work. Yeah, a healthier body is tangible, I guess. Or it will be. But somehow working toward an event ... Read more
Day 41 A Day at the Allergist
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      2 comments

Well, yesterday was spent at the asthma and allergy specialist for my son. He's inherited my asthma. Only where I grew up in subtropical climes and used my inhaler maybe twice a year, he is in good ol' KY, allergy capital of the nation. It st... Read more
Day 38-40 Post Weekend Blog and a little about my Vibrams for Caalan23's sake
Monday, July 25, 2011      1 comments

I had a very unproductive but fun weekend. There was talk about weeding the garden and finishing the chicken yard fence so the chicks could be put up in the barn, but the heat just decided that this was a no go for the weekend. So, we got the ... Read more
Day 35-37 Blogging is more difficult than I first believed it would be
Friday, July 22, 2011      4 comments

I am not a naturally effusive talker, which seems to translate to blogging. I don't have a boring life. I have things I can discuss with my parents, my sister, husband, kids, friends... But, I don't do it just to talk. So, I tend to be quiet... Read more
Day 27-34 Woops. Blew my goal of blogging each day.
Tuesday, July 19, 2011      1 comments

Well, that goal is shot, but I'll jump back on and try to keep it up. I do my Spraking at work since it's the only time I really get to sit down at the computer for any length of time. Last week, though, work was busy and I just couldn't get t... Read more

Monday, July 11, 2011      0 comments

Well, I did it. I finished Day 1 of C25K. I intended to get Day Two out of the way yesterday, but plans with the hubby took precedence during the time the Y was open. I thought about running on my road, but that's never really a good idea. I... Read more
Day 22 & 23 - A workout plan
Friday, July 08, 2011      1 comments

I didn't get chance to blog yesterday, so this one will have to be for both days. The fact that I'm using it to declare a workout schedule should make up for it. It has occurred to me that being accountable to myself isn't working. So, if... Read more

Wednesday, July 06, 2011      2 comments

I've taken up walking at lunchtime during the work week. Downtown Lexington is an interesting place to walk. There's all sorts of sidewalks, shops, houses, neighborhoods. Usually, I stick to a familiar area, but yesterday I decided to branch ... Read more

Tuesday, July 05, 2011      2 comments

I had a looooonnnnngggg weekend, so today's blog covers from Friday to Tuesday. I did not take care in my caloric intake this weekend. Weekends are difficult for me. Of course, every day is difficult for me. But, weekends where I have ... Read more
Day 15 - Karma's a B!^@#
Thursday, June 30, 2011      3 comments

Well, I guess the universe has decided that it is time for me to get serious here. Last night, because I couldn't find my blackeye peas and really didn't have anything ready to make for dinner, I decided to pick up a couple of pizzas for the hu... Read more
Day 14 - No Black Eye Peas
Wednesday, June 29, 2011      0 comments

No getting any parties started tonight. I cannot find my blackeye peas. I know I bought a bag because originally I had a can of them. But, when I found them dried, I decided to go that route since I couldn't find any cans without salt a... Read more

Tuesday, June 28, 2011      1 comments

I've seen this headline four times today now. And while I am not a Lexingtonian (I live in Richmond. Well, Madison County anyway), I do work downtown in this fair city. I know our lovely state is high on the list of the most unhealthy populat... Read more
