Pool Rat

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

GREAT workout today -- 60 minutes of non-stop laps in the pool!! It has been quite some time since I have done that!


My "baby" is off to college!

Thursday, August 14, 2008

A proud yet sad moment for me today -- I said good bye to my "baby" -- my youngest daughter -- as she heads off for college at Colorado State University! She and her mother are doing the road trip out west, and there is a little part of me that is jealous, but then I think about 3 days on the road, and decided I won't miss that too bad!

She is an incredibly smart and driven student, so I have high expectations that she will do well. She may be back for Thanksgiving, or it may not be until Christmas, which sounds (and looks) like along way off, but the way this year has literally flown by, it will be here before you know it.

Sad, happy, etc...mixed emotions, but happy to see my "baby" growing into a smart, confident, and independent woman. I guess I did my job OK!

    So how's your DD liking CSU? My son is a freshman there as well and he's loving it so far. I only live about an hour and a half away, so he was able to come home this past weekend. That would be tough living out of state, not sure I could handle

    Just read your blog about your youngest going off to college. My husband works at a local University and helped with move-in day. He said there were many mixed emotions over the last few days. You must be very proud of her!

    They say the apple never falls far from the tree so she must get all her smarts and drive from you and your wife. Congratulations proud papa!!

Exercise Update

Monday, July 21, 2008

- Last week's BodyPump class went well, but I clearly overdid it, as my triceps were KILLING me a few days after. They are much better, but plan to lower my weights this week and not repeat my painful experience from a week ago.

- Attended my 1st cycling (spinning) class today. THAT IS HARD WORK! Taking in as much water as I can to prevent legs from cramping up tonight. But, I did like it, the 45 minutes went very fast, and I am planning to back on Wednesday.

- Today was the first day in a LONG time where I felt like I got a good day of exercise in. Hoping for many more successful days like this in the future.


First BodyPump Class in 3 months!

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

While I have been doing some basic work at the gym and in the yard, I had yet to join any sort of intense exercise class since sometime in April. My new YMCA has "BodyPump", which I was used to doing in CT, and they have a noontime class on Tuesdays, so I decided to get back in the swing.

Well, my muscles have finally stopped twitching! Totally intense!! IT FELT GOOD!! But I suspect there will be some sore muscles in the AM...



I'm Back (slowly but surely)

Thursday, June 26, 2008


After about a 2 month hiatus, I have returned to SP! This was not a "fall off the wagon" issue, rather the complexities and stress of moving from CT to DE.

Good news: We moved to DE!
Bad news: The sale of our house in CT fell through!

So, if anyone is looking for a house in central Connecticut, let me know!

So, I have not been in a gym in the better part of two months, although I have been doing my best to get out and walk (power and leisure), and of course have plenty of boxes to be moved, etc. Planning to check out a YMCA close to our new home tomorrow, and if I like what I see, then I'll be joining and getting back into the swing of exercise.

As far as eating healthy, it has been a challenge, but much like exercise, plan to be more vigilant starting next week.

So...come Monday, I'll see if I can find the scale, step on it, see what the bad news is, record it here in SP, and get about the task of living healthy again.
