Improvements and Acknowledgements
This is a two part blog entry. I will often peruse team member blog entries, just sitting and reading, but I don't always leave a comment. I don't write blogs regularly, I don't always know what to say, or don't feel I have anything to say. I... Read more
When I started going to the gym on October 1st, I hadn't been on the scale in about a month. The last weight I recorded was 185, but I believe I was closer to 188-189 at the ... Read more
CRAZY, BUT FEELING POSITIVE
It’s been an eventful two weeks. My son called me on the 13th, very upset. He started going on how he needed to move in with us and he was going to lose his job. When I got him to explain what the heck happened, it turns out he got into a ba... Read more
PLAYING THE NUMBERS
So I got on the scale today, and I was not happy. My weight was up. Not by much,(a measly 0.2 lb) and I should probably just shrug it off, but I have been working my okole off at the gym. I won't let it bother me enough to do something stupid... Read more
TRYING SOMETHING NEW
So, once again, I have been inactive/semi-active on here, mainly because I am still trying to adjust to my new work schedule.
I love the shift I work, 3 pm to 11:30 pm, with the occasional 3 pm to 3 am 12 hour shift. I ride my bike after ... Read more
THROWN OFF, BUT GETTING BACK ON THE PROVERBIAL HORSE
I don't know why, but sometimes just the slightest change in my routine can throw me totally off my game.
I have been working since I turned 16 and I have done shift work, first in fast-food, then as a Nursing Assistant, for most of that ti... Read more
WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING
I haven’t blogged for quite a while. I just couldn’t seem to find the time or when I did, I couldn’t seem to organize my thoughts into anything that made sense. There has just been so much happening in my life.
The biggest thing that has ... Read more
MIA BECAUSE I AM “GETTING OLD”
I haven’t Sparked for a while. I have been having some major issues with my knees, especially my left knee. It’s been pretty bad, I actually had to stay home from work and I am a secretary.
It started just before my last blog post (Februa... Read more
So once again, I have set up a work-out calendar with the best of intentions, and once again, those intentions are going buh-bye. I have missed 2 cardio sessions and I have only done 1 strength training day. I know I need to do ST, but getting... Read more
SMALL VICTORIES AND MENTAL SETBACKS
Well I have completed the first 5 weeks for 2014, and I have had some success. I am down 5.6 pounds, so about 1 pound per week. I am happy with that. I did have some problems sticking with my work-out calendar, and my GI issues reappeared for... Read more
DON’T FAIL UNTIL YOU FAIL
I am an avid reader. I have been known to go through a book a day, and my Kindle is my best friend. Have you ever read a sentence or phrase that just sticks with you? “Don’t fail until you fail.” is one for me. I read it in a fantasy novel. ... Read more

ALMOST BACK TO NORMAL
First of all, thanks to everyone who extended well wishes to me while I was dealing with the upheaval of my son’s accident and his healing process. Working where I do, and with all that I have seen, I know how lucky he was. J has done really w... Read more
KOMEN HAWAII RACE FOR THE CURE 2013
I did the Race for the cure today. My goal was to try and run/jog at least 1/3 of the race. I had my hair smeared with pink goop, my play list cued up, and my GPS tracker ... Read more
It’s been a very hectic two weeks. J was discharged from the Rehab Hospital on 9/28. The whole thing was stressful! The staff told him “You are going home on Saturday.” He had it in his mind that he was going back to his home, and got VERY m... Read more
