The past few days have been busy. On Friday, we volunteered at the California International Marathon (CIM) expo for 4 hours and I got to meet Scott Jurek! Unless you're kind of a running geek like me, you won't know him. But google him and check... Read more
This one's for Fredie (MARINGAL)!!
Okay, I couldn't WAIT to write this post and hoped to do it last night - but we had date night so that wouldn't have been too thoughtful LOL. Yesterday, I loaded the trunk with several boxes and bags of DVDs, books and an old Nintendo player tha... Read more
Opted Outside Today
I'm surprised how many people haven't heard of REI's #optoutside campaign. Basically, REI encourages people to get outside and walk or hike instead of shopping on Black Friday. I've never been one who sees any point to stay up late or get up ear... Read more
In Awe of My Sister
Yesterday, I drove my sister around so she could work. She is a veterinarian, and her work is mainly doing low-cost shot clinics at Petco. Her husband was doing his last long run before the CIM so she asked me to drive her.
She came to my h... Read more
Final Weigh in of 5%
Well, this will be quick 'cause it's dinner time and I've got some things to do before an early day tomorrow. I agreed to drive my sister around so she can work - she does shot clinics for dogs and cats at Petco. She calls it the shot clinic roa... Read more
Figuring some things out
This is the end of the 5% challenge and it has been a good experience for me even though I didn't lose weight (last weigh in tomorrow). The past two days I've been very anxious. Not really about the 5% but other things that I'm still processing.... Read more
Past few days
...been out and about quite a bit. We went to a wine club party up in the foothills at Lava Cap Winery on Saturday. It was fun, we've never been part of a wine club so this was new to us. We met some nice people and had a good time. Some people ... Read more
5% Challenge - Musings
The Fall 5% Weight Loss Challenge was my first one. It was also the first time I've joined something like this since joining Sparkpeople, even though I have "joined" several groups. What I liked about it was:

It gets a bit worse before it gets better - the clutter I mean
Yes, more of that. Today I dragged stuff out of my closet so I could vacuum in there and pull some things out to get rid of. If I'm on the fence about something, I still put it in a bag and have it in the spare room. I know all the experts say t... Read more
Thursday in Fall
I don't know about you, but I find that when I sit down to start a blog, I have trouble coming up with a title. I started earlier today to talk about today's de-cluttering, but didn't get too far in the writing before leaving for a massage.

More than 10 minutes of de-cluttering
De-cluttering is one of the Living the Good Life (LGL) challenges this week for the 5%. Right up my alley, and of course, those of us who know MARINGAL aka Fredielyn, know this is her area of speciality! So I always think of her when I'm sorting... Read more
So this is how I've been feeling this week. If it was still physically possible, I'd think I was PMSing. But I'm not.
First, I gained a pound.... Read more
All Saints Day
Here it is, late again. I have lots of good ideas when I walk, but by the time I get here, POOF.
So random writing it is.
Had a tough couple of days emotionally. Didn't eat particularly well. But the extra candy is packed up and I ne... Read more
A bit discouraged, but not giving up
Still learning lessons. I gained a bit this week, although it's really over two weeks since I didn't weigh last week (due to being out of town). I can feel some changes, so that's good - NSV.
Yesterday, I went for a LONG walk (6.75 miles) ... Read more
