Make your plans -- don't play your results

My fitness plans for the week fell flat. On Sunday, my brother was dropping my mom off so we could take her to Sac to see the kids, and he suggested that I check out my mom's hand -- YIKES!!! Her cat had bitten her on Friday, and her hand and ... Read more

Fitness Goals

Sunday, October 25, 2015      6 comments

I worked late all days this past week except for Monday, when I had to work at J#2, so I didn't accomplish all of my fitness goals. I hopped on the treadmill a couple of times (Sparky thinks that my treadmill walks = cycling...), and did some o... Read more

Monday and Saturday -- Job #2 days -- lots of carrying, bending, stooping, walking. Goal for Monday is 5000 steps. Goal for Saturday (full shift) is 10K steps. If I don't get in all of the steps on Saturday, I'm off work enough to take a walk... Read more

It's been a while since I've checked in. I spent most of a month before our vacation getting my work affairs in order. 10 - 14 hpd resulted in a mild cold the day before we left on vacation, but no big deal. But, hey, vacation! The first... Read more

I haven't been able to check in or to blog in weeks, because I'm trying to get all office ducks in a row so we can go on vacation next week. I've been working 10-12+ hour days consistently, with the occasional weekend day off and the occasional... Read more

My SparkPage told me that there is a Balanced Life Challenge this month, and that the first task is to write down why you're feeling unbalanced lately. So I thought about it. As you know, after a bout of major stress over the past few yea... Read more

I am so totally self-absorbed and busy that I haven't read any Sparkmails or goodie notes in weeks. You know who you are -- I think about you daily and am always sending you good energy. So, this is what happens when I "let down" a little ... Read more

We had dinner at New Guy's house on Saturday night. I have been happy ever since we stepped foot into his house. NG is so happy that we are forming a partnership. He says that it is the opportunity of a lifetime. The difference between this ... Read more
