Halloween week and the approach of 42.....
Tuesday, October 28, 2008      5 comments

I used to think that 42 sounded so old. Now that 42 is only two days away, it doesn't sound so awful at all. I feel stronger and healthier now than I have ever felt in my life. I'm surrounded by such healthy and active people who prove that y... Read more
Day 5!
Friday, September 12, 2008      4 comments

It was a busy week, and I chose a different way to blog yesterday, so today is a catch up. I didn't want to go to the gym on Wednesday morning b/c I had such a bad night's sleep. So, I got to the office and I did Coach Nicole's 10 minute c... Read more

Thursday, September 11, 2008      21 comments

It starts several months earlier….. I was excited that we sold our house and I had found a job in New York City. We found a nice apartment in Astoria, Queens and were ready to move and start a new chapter in our lives. We moved on the wee... Read more
Day Two!

I'm keeping track here so I can be accountable. So far today, I've met my goal of 30 minutes of cardio. I've also really read the Fast Break #1 and #2 emails. I've eaten my meal plan for the morning and have tracked my food. I exchange... Read more
A new week!

Well, here it is. The first full week of September. I'm starting over on SP as if it's my first day (I know, I said I was doing that on Friday, but realistically it had to wait until today!). I have a good attitude today since I got a lot... Read more
Work is stupid....
Friday, September 05, 2008      4 comments

I'm still at work. It's Friday night at 8 pm, and I won't be out of here for another 30 minutes at least. I live over an hour from work. I've been here since 7:30 this morning. I just pray I don't fall asleep going home. My dumb boss ha... Read more

I've gotten so off track on my eating and fitness routine. I'm going back to stage one of the SparkPeople program and I'm going to follow it as it should be followed and as if this is my first day on SparkPeople. I have the distinct advantage ... Read more

Here's the picture I promised. There are a few more on my sparkpage. A few folks asked, so I thought I'd put up a blog when I posted the pictures. Sydney is on the right!... Read more

This daily reflection couldn't have been more timely for me. I just want to copy it here so I can go back to it and read it whenever I need to. Do you succumb to laziness? We commonly procrastinate or put off an activity altogether by... Read more

Writing that blog entry yesterday really helped. Getting feedback and information from those who posted here and elsewhere also helped me to focus on what is really important, which is having fun and feeling good about ourselves. We went t... Read more
Horse Show
Wednesday, August 06, 2008      8 comments

So, last night was Sydney's first horse show. The Sussex County Horse Show is an A rated show, so it's a big deal. Of course, I'm just starting to learn about all of these things, so it's all new to me. Her part of the show is not part of the... Read more
Random thoughts for a Monday
Monday, August 04, 2008      9 comments

Work is frustrating. My boss is a control freak, and instead of just being in charge of finance (he's the CFO), he's now also in charge of HR. He is most certainly the last person who should be in charge of HR!! He's just annoying me recently... Read more

Whew! I had the six month follow up mammo today, and all was OK!!! That was stressing me out a bit. I guess this has been my year of medical issues, thankfully none of them very serious. But, it does make me take stock of how well I'm taking... Read more
Birthday Party
Monday, July 28, 2008      3 comments

The party on Saturday went well! I'm amazed at how much work goes into doing a party for only 7 kids! My parents came to help out, and they were a HUGE help. I even had healthy things to eat, along with some not so healthy chips and dip... Read more

Things are going so well now. I worked at home today and got a lot done. I left at 2:30, went to the wine shop and got some nice wine. The wine club delivery came today too, so there's lots of nice wine in the house. I picked up the kid... Read more
