Wednesday, August 24, 2016      2 comments

Whew, never got a chance to blog yesterday, what a day! The main event was 7th grade orientation from 12-2 - totally blew a hole in my very busy work schedule, but what can you do. The worst part was, I didn't get back to the office till aroun... Read more
Day 235: Focus
Monday, August 22, 2016      2 comments

I really liked today's Spark quote: "I am the problem, but I am also the "SOLUTION." So true...nobody else is going to do this get-fit-and-lose-weight thing for's all on me! Much as I would like to assign the losing-weight part to some... Read more

Friday, August 19, 2016      3 comments

Someone here mentioned Couch to 5K the other day and it got me thinking that I hadn't looked at that program for a long time. I've been starting to inch back into running, and I've been doing run 1 minute, walk 2. So I looked at C25K yesterday... Read more

Thursday, August 18, 2016      3 comments

I'm just feeling like I'm in the twilight zone or something, it's been such a wacky day. A person that I've worked with very well for a couple years has blown up at a colleague and at me was over something that none of us can figure... Read more
Couch to 5K revisit
Wednesday, August 17, 2016      3 comments

Okay, I hadn't looked at the actual Couch to 5k program for a bit, so I wanted to compare it to what I'm doing. Here's the program...note that each workout begins with a 5-minute walk (and obviously a cooldown walk), and these workouts are thre... Read more
Day 230: Running
Wednesday, August 17, 2016      5 comments

Got out and did some running this morning...ran 1 minute, walked 2, and got 10 minutes in! I know, that probably doesn't sound impressive to most of you - 10 min of running out of about 45 min (2.8 miles total, no idea how much of that was runn... Read more

Busy day today, but I started it off right - got my butt out the door for a walk and even got 7 minutes of running in (run 1 min, walk 2). Not much, but every little bit counts...hopefully. I'm doing well on exercise right now, today mar... Read more

Friday, August 12, 2016      1 comments

Woo hoo, it's Friday! Busy day at work, but that's okay, makes the day go by faster. I did take a bit of a long lunch, because today was "show" day at Kate's horse camp. The camp is run by one of the teachers at her school, she does a gre... Read more
