A sermon and a reflection.

Sunday, July 05, 2015      10 comments

I was a greeter at church this morning. The pastor is new and had a very powerful sermon on morality. She is retired Army and her husband is still enlisted. Her sermon was about how the moral aspect of the Bible is sometimes "changed" to ... Read more

Happy Independence Day!

Saturday, July 04, 2015      8 comments

As we celebrate this 4th of July/Independence Day, may we be grateful for all of the freedoms that we have. Freedom of religion (which is the discussion I referred to yesterday), freedom of speech, freedom of expression, etc. Today may we enjoy... Read more

A good disagreement!

Friday, July 03, 2015      6 comments

Facebook, love it or hate it, but it does bring about some "good stuff" and in my case a "good disagreement." I won't get into any particulars here, as it is pretty controversial, but the conversation has been quite surprising. I really like how... Read more

I deleted sparkfriends :(

Thursday, July 02, 2015      10 comments

I noticed that quite a few sparkfriends have left. I decided to go through and delete the ones that are no longer here. I deleted 13! It could have been 14, but I know this lady pretty well and I hope she comes back. My deleting made me thi... Read more

Is there really such a thing as a day off?

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      10 comments

I've decided to take it easy today. I've been either running or doing boot camp daily. My day off still includes at least a 40 minute walk with the dog. He needs it and it's good for me. Is there really such a thing as a day off? I have a ... Read more

I love summer Mondays!

Monday, June 29, 2015      10 comments

Today is my first day of not working on a Monday! The summer has gotten much shorter over my teaching career and I'll be back in the classroom in around 5 weeks. I started my day out right and went for a little over 6 mile run. It took me ... Read more

Carb overload

Sunday, June 28, 2015      10 comments

I went out for breakfast with the hubby. It was really brunch time so I figured the calories would be for two meals. I had a pancake, plain, two basted eggs and hash browns. It was very yummy! I felt fine with my choices, but boy could I ... Read more

The first day of "my summer!"

Saturday, June 27, 2015      6 comments

The first day of "my summer" began with not eating raw. I ate in order to go for a run. It was a little over 4 miles, but that was far enough considering the heat and humidity. I came home and got ready for a therapy dog visit at our coffe... Read more

Trying something new!

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      17 comments

I have had the "Creeping Scale Syndrome" for the past weeks. I cannot get to the lower end of my weight range and I recently am out of a challenge because of 4 ounces. Well, I am fed up and I'm trying something new. My oldest is getting her... Read more

Supporting others

Sunday, June 21, 2015      10 comments

Yesterday was a day of supporting others. Really not a big deal! First, Halo and I walked in the Pride Parade. I walked in support of my sister, my uncle and an aunt. Then, I went to my daughter's horse show. I used to ride my horse in thi... Read more

I don't understand!

Thursday, June 18, 2015      6 comments

I really don't understand people and this world today! Too many deaths based on an "ism." I wrote about "isms" in a previous blog, but it seems like I need to revisit the subject. The "isms" include sexism, ageism, ableism, racism, classism... Read more

Boot camp

Tuesday, June 16, 2015      9 comments

I went to boot camp tonight. It was HOT! The leaders took that into consideration with little running. The series consisted of ... 1) squats with a weighted sand bag 2) carrying a log 3) doing lunges, crawls, etc for 20 feet 4) rowing w... Read more

A glorious run!

Sunday, June 14, 2015      15 comments

Last night I ran and it was glorious! I ran after 9:00 PM so the humidity was lower and there was a slight breeze. I ran a little over 4 miles and it was wonderful! I really wanted to go farther, but my mind kept all of my sparkfriends' comments... Read more

Trying to go more "natural."

Saturday, June 13, 2015      9 comments

This morning I took Halo on a 50 minute walk. We went a little over 2.5 miles. It was cloudy, but very humid. He was spent and seemed happy to be back home. I am trying something new. I wore a pair of flat summer shoes for my walk. The HIT ... Read more

HIT workout

Friday, June 12, 2015      9 comments

It rained, again, yesterday so boot camp was cancelled. Instead we meet at the Y and do a HIT workout. HIT is high intensity training. I was sweating buckets! Stairs, burpees, barbells, kettlebells, ladder, steps, abs, free weights, jumpin... Read more
