Christmas Pageant

Sunday, December 20, 2009      3 comments

I'm singing a duet with my oldest tonight, "Dear Little Stranger." She's doing great. Me--I could use a little more practice. Hopefully it will go well. My biggest fear is probably embarassing her. I'm too old to really get emba... Read more

Bad Facebook Friend

Thursday, December 17, 2009      2 comments

People post things on my wall throughout the day, and I never respond. It's not that I don't care or don't want to respond--Facebook is blocked at work. And by the time I get home, I have only 2 hours to spend with my family before bed. I... Read more

Me and the scale

Wednesday, December 16, 2009      3 comments

I can't decide if it's the scale at the YMCA that keeps my weight loss on track or the swimming laps. It's probably a combination of the two. Even when I do other cardio, I don't maintain my weight like I do when I'm swimming. And every t... Read more

I did this One on One workout this morning. Nice. Tony is the quietest and most reflective in this DVD than any other I've seen/done. He holds the poses for what seems like an eternity at times. Tough workout.... Read more

Compassion Fatigue

This is the buzz word / term for what happens when you just get tired and don't care anymore. It is used a lot in the healthcare field--it may be present elsewhere as well, I'm not sure. ... Read more

100% Cotton Scrubs

Saturday, December 12, 2009      2 comments

I have looked and looked for these but to no avail. The ones that I have found are scratchy and coarse. The polyester blend is softer, but too hot. I think I may end up at the fabric store and begging a sewing-talented friend to h... Read more

Breaking Bread

Friday, December 11, 2009      4 comments

I made dinner tonight for my coworkers: kielbasa sausage / black bean soup, homemade bread, salad, chocolate cookies, and rice krispie treats. I hope that everyone enjoys eating it as much as I enjoyed making it.... Read more

High Intensity Strength Training

Thursday, December 10, 2009      3 comments

I just read the SparkPeople article on this--very interesting! I think that I have been doing this all along, but not known what it is called. I am getting better results with 48 hours off in between my strength training sessions instead o... Read more

MAKES 6 to 8 BURRITOS If you have not tried to make meat fillings for tacos or burritos with your own seasonings, and using shredded rather than ground meat, you really must. It is far superior. In this recipe the beef chuck is first bo... Read more

One on One: Patience, Hummingbird

Sunday, December 06, 2009      2 comments

Very nice yoga workout this morning. The only frustrating aspect is the lack of audio cues, which when you can't see the TV screen within some of the poses, is a problem. However, with practice I am sure I can get a better sense of Tony's rhyt... Read more
