The day before

Saturday, August 01, 2015      19 comments

The day before an event, I like to do a walk-through. I picked up my packet for the State Games of America on Thursday after work. I skipped out on the Opening Ceremonies, opting to get to bed on time Friday, instead. As usual it was a great ... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts People tell me things

Thursday, July 30, 2015      36 comments

It's a funny place to be, these days. Being known for my fitness at work, and somewhat for my weight loss and especially maintenance, people tend to come up to me and let me know that they are doing well. Yesterday I got to share the joy in so... Read more

Soak the heat in, sweat it back out!

Wednesday, July 29, 2015      23 comments

OK, I may be different, but I love running in the heat. I work in a sedentary job in an air-conditioned (read COLD) office cubicle. When I go outside in the summertime on my breaks, it is to warm up. I may come back in warm, but I soon ... Read more

Tough through it Tuesday

Tuesday, July 28, 2015      20 comments

Yesterday I respected the rest day on the training schedule. This morning I'm feeling a slump in motivation. I'm sure I'll be better if I just slog through it... so there we go... accountability and determination. * Breakfast has been sav... Read more

I'm coming up on the day that I told the At Goal and Maintaining Team is my maintenance anniversary: August 4th. But today marks the start of a new Maintenance Minder diary. I have filled two completely, stretching them out to cover more than... Read more

Bonus blog: The Prisoner asks "why me?"

Sunday, July 26, 2015      22 comments

Well, it didn't go away, this little orange fluff-ball the Hu-mom calls Rubia. And the kitten will NOT leave me alone. Can I get some peace around her... Read more

Mom's Taxi Service

Friday, July 24, 2015      25 comments

Since my DIL has dizziness associated with her migraines, it was not a good idea for her to drive herself to another city to see the headache specialist. Given the scheduling, it would have been touch and go if my son took her after his class a... Read more

Another short on time accountability blog

Thursday, July 23, 2015      18 comments

* The bag is packed. Remember to eat what's in it. * Food has been planned and pre-tracked. * Remember to go to morning recess, even if it's a quickie between meetings. My work morning is packed with meetings, which tend to leave me an... Read more

Quick accountability blog

Wednesday, July 22, 2015      23 comments

Not a lot of philosophy to talk today: * The bag is packed, remember to eat what's in it! * Food is planned, even for supper, and pre-tracked. At this point, there are no choices... I have already chosen! * Remember to go to recess... ... Read more

I didn't beat the continuing sinus headache on Monday. By late Sunday afternoon, I was duking my way through the continuation of the sinus symptoms, including headache. I had felt a little better getting outdoors Sunday morning with the pa... Read more

This morning's victory - I beat the rain!

Sunday, July 19, 2015      25 comments

It was cloudy, but not yet HOT, so sometime around 7:15 a.m. my time, I stepped out of my sliding door and continued to work on "the forest". I am being quite selfish about my approach to the project. I am doing the parts inside the privacy fe... Read more

I really really dislike that vitamin D2

Saturday, July 18, 2015      21 comments

I've been eating properly for a week, took my high dosage D2 last night at bedtime, and woke up totally sinus swollen. So, it's NOT eating crap that's doing it. It COULD be the weather change (rain overnight, so I know a front came through), b... Read more
