I so appreciate all the kind and supportive comments and goodies from all you spark friends! I made up for lack of weekday exercise this weekend with heavy gardening, lots of walking and paddling on some of the smoothest water ever! ... Read more
Raccoon Chronicles
Sunday, October 10, 2010      6 comments

On Tuesday raccoons invaded our garden for the grapes on top of the arbor. Just as I was about to brush my teeth, I found out they were there when my 14 pound dog started making the most horrible noise. I ran in my sock feet out to the back pa... Read more
Too Much
Saturday, October 09, 2010      5 comments

I just got home from my niece's eleventh birthday party. I ate too much and I feel yucky. I suppose that is a good thing because hopefully I'll remember feeling yucky the next time I'm near a chip bowl or presented with chocolate cake and ice ... Read more
Busy Weekdays
Monday, October 04, 2010      2 comments

Monday and the start of another busy week with lots of extra meetings before and after the regular work day. Teaching demands so much time. I did squeeze in a short walk tonight, yea! And, I'm managing to track nutrition, but not always as ac... Read more
Just Lazy
Sunday, October 03, 2010      4 comments

Sometimes I am just plain lazy. I have a long list of to do's today, but none of it is getting done because I am a master of procrastination. Time is moving along, and I am distracting myself with one unnecessary thing after another. I did g... Read more
Finally a blog post
Saturday, October 02, 2010      2 comments

It's hard to find enough time to exercise, work everyday and go to all the associated meetings and trainings, and show up for all the expected family and social events. Therefore, it's been a while since I posted a blog. September was a grea... Read more
Fall Cleaning
Sunday, September 19, 2010      6 comments

There have been rain showers on and off today. I managed to get out between them and walk the dogs, but other than that its been an indoor day. I've been putting off going through my closet and dresser to cull the old, ill fitting clothe... Read more
A little birthday indulgence
Friday, September 10, 2010      4 comments

I indulged big time for my birthday. I don't even feel one bit bad about it. I thoroughly enjoyed my large portion of tortellini with pesto at lunch. I savored every bite of my grilled salmon salad with goat cheese and candied walnuts for din... Read more
Best Class Ever!
Wednesday, September 08, 2010      4 comments

I have a fantastic group of second graders this year! I think this is the smoothest first day I've ever had. I sure did get hungry by the end of the day, though. I avoided all the doughnuts on the staff table! I ate my soup for lunch and had... Read more
First Day
Wednesday, September 08, 2010      5 comments

Tomorrow is the first day of school for kids. This afternoon we had "Meet the Teacher." All but three of my students families came to drop off supplies. It looks like a great class of second graders! I've still deciding what to wear for the ... Read more
Rainy weather
Monday, September 06, 2010      5 comments

Ok, it's not that rainy, but the sky is gray, it's windy, and a lot colder- only 58 degrees. I feel kind of achy, but I'm sure I'm still too young for the weather to effect how I feel. I bought a sleeveless wetsuit so I can extend my stand up ... Read more
Meetings and sitting
Tuesday, August 31, 2010      5 comments

The last two days I've been in meetings sitting for hours at a time. Yuck! I feel way more tired than when I get lots of exercise. Yesterday I got an hour of paddling in after the meeting, which felt great! Today is windy and rainy and we hav... Read more
Family reunion picnic
Sunday, August 29, 2010      3 comments

I'm about to leave for the family reunion picnic. We have a lot of good cooks in the extended family so there will be lots of tempting dishes. I can probably do a decent job of eating a healthy meal inside of my calorie range, but then there a... Read more
I'm hooked!
Wednesday, August 25, 2010      3 comments

I ordered a stand up paddle board! I love it! I've gone out 3 times in 5 days and I don't even have my own board yet. I feel a pleasant soreness in my muscles from all the paddling and balancing. When I'm out there it just feels like p... Read more
Stand Up Paddle Board
Sunday, August 22, 2010      2 comments

Today I tried something new. A friend of mine got this giant surf board that comes with a paddle and invited my to try it. Now, I don't usually like activities on the water. Sailing is too windy and cold, same with speed boats plus they... Read more
