Hey, I finally got on the spark site! A friend posted on FB that the Russians hacked the Internet or something. I dunno...all I know is I couldn't access Twitter or Spark, which made me sad.

Day 294: Hauling Myself Back Onto the Wagon
Okay, enough pity party already...time to get back on the wagon! I got my butt out running today, finally - hadn't run since my "epic fail" on Sunday and I knew if I let it go another day I'd be dangerously close to just giving up on the runnin... Read more
Day 293: Grumpy
I am feeling tired and grumpy and negative today, so what have I been doing? Eating like crap. Not completely off the wagon, but not great. Which I'm sure isn't helping my mood or anything else. I am going to try to get out and run tomorrow ... Read more
Day 292: Make Sure You Vote!
Well, I seem to be fighting another bug, sigh...last week it was a sore throat, this week it's a tummy ache. It was bad, on and off, all day yesterday, and bothered me a lot last night - I slept horribly. But it seems to be a lot better today ... Read more
Day 291: Coffee, Coffee, Coffee
Well, no workout today...Paul didn't get home from his golf trip till almost midnight, so we opted to sleep in a bit today! We'll definitely be heading to bed early tonight.

Day 290: Silver Linings
I decided to attempt the big 20-minute run this morning (C25K,Week 5, Day 3). Probably a lousy idea...it was raining, I was feeling stiff and achy (I have rheumatoid arthritis, and arthritis and rain do not mix well), and I was feeling a little... Read more
Day 289: Things I Need to Learn
So many patterns and bad habits that are so easy to fall into...
- drinking a glass of wine too often leads to drinking a second glass of wine. Lots o' calories.
- drinking too often leads to unhealthy snacking. More bad calories.
- trying ... Read more
Day 288: I Did It!
So very weird...after several days of feeling exhausted, and fighting a progressively stronger sore throat, at the end of the day yesterday I suddenly started feeling a lot better! Sore throat stopped, energy level went up, and I basically felt... Read more
Day 287: Fighting Something :-p
I have just been so ridiculously tired this week! And I've been fighting a sore throat for a couple of days now. Blechhhh. Hopefully it doesn't get any worse than this. Fortunately, no major plans this weekend, though Paul is on a plane righ... Read more
Day 286: Pooped
Well, when the alarm went off this morning, I rolled over and went back to sleep for half an hour - so I guess we'll call it a much-needed rest day! I am just feeling super tired these days, and I have no right to - I just had three days off la... Read more
Day 285: C25K Week Five!
Well, I've done it - the first day of C25K, Week 5. I can't believe it! I have been trying, albeit very on-and-off, to run, for years now - probably four or five years, to be exact. And this is the furthest I have ever gotten, so I'm pretty p... Read more
Day 284: Maybe a leeeetle overenthusiastic...
Yesterday morning I went for a bike ride and ended up going 14 miles! I usually do anywhere from 6-10, maybe 11 or 12 on a good ride. Yesterday I just felt like pushing it. But it might have been a little OVER enthusiastic...my legs were sooo... Read more
Day 283: Biker Chick Today
I just did a long bike ride - wanted to explore a new area that just opened up to bikes and that added a little more than I realized! But I love exploring places that I haven't biked to before...I find that I don't even notice I'm exercising wh... Read more
Day 281: TGIF!
Got my Couch to 5K workout in this morning! Day 2 of my third round of Week 4. I'll see how ambitious I'm feeling the next time I get out, but I'm actually thinking that maybe I'll skip Day 3 and take on Week 5. Yikes!

Day 280: Back to Reality
Just a quickie today, not much to say. I'm back at work after three lovely days off. So funny...I had an 8am dentist appt and when the receptionist asked me how I was, I joked, "great, how else would I want to start off my week than by going t... Read more
