Aster, Paddling Glutton

Friday, May 28, 2010      3 comments

So my single week is not going exactly as planned. Until yesterday, it had been rainy in the evenings. So much so on Tuesday that we delayed sushi until next Tuesday because driving around when there are flash flood warnings is just stupid and... Read more

My week as a single girl, days 1 & 2

Tuesday, May 25, 2010      6 comments

Yesterday, my husband flew to Seattle to meet up with his brother and parents for an Alaska Cruise that departs today. My sister-in-law, nieces and I aren't going for a variety of reasons. I'm relieved that I'm not there since as much as I wou... Read more

Garlic Mustard Pesto

Tuesday, April 20, 2010      2 comments

So tonight we're eating weeds for dinner, not because we have to, but because we can. On my way home from work ... Read more

One word survey

Thursday, March 11, 2010      4 comments

Not as easy as you might think! Copy and Paste into your own blog, change the answers to suit you. It's really hard to only use one word answers. Stole this from Kayotic in the Outdoor People Group... Where is your cell phone? desk S... Read more

Spring Fever, Melting Snow

Sunday, March 07, 2010      4 comments

I think we may have seen our last cross country skiing for the year. It's pretty melty and yesterday, we took advantage of that by hiking at Horicon Marsh. The snow a... Read more

A pretty good week

Friday, February 05, 2010      2 comments

I think this week was pretty good. I fixed a couple of the sloppy areas in my eating. It's the second week in a row that I've been consistent taking the stairs up at work. I've always been good about going down the stairs (but where is the ch... Read more

Someone else will eat the Oreos

Tuesday, February 02, 2010      3 comments

At work this morning, we had a speaker for a seminar. They usually have coffee and cookies and sometimes there are some left. And then the cookies sit on a plate for the rest of the day, possibly taunting anyone who has occasion to go near the... Read more

Monday, February 01, 2010      1 comments

Part of the problem that I started confronting last week is that the non-biking season has not been kind. Except for a couple of weekends earlier in the season, the x-country skiing has not exactly been stellar either. And I am not a gym girl.... Read more

Restaurant Week Dinner

Thursday, January 28, 2010      1 comments

Last week, before I came to the conclusion that I needed to get back on track and start doing some of the things that got me into trouble and stalled my progress, or even reversed it a little, we decided to have dinner one night this week at a r... Read more

Room for Improvement

Tuesday, January 26, 2010      2 comments

I've been doing a bit of reassessing lately and find that I need to rededicate myself to the weight loss project. I have pretty good diet habits, I walk or bike daily (walking lately since it is winter) and kayak often when the water is open. ... Read more

Chicken Enchiladas

Wednesday, December 16, 2009      6 comments

Choclaholic and anyone else who wants it, here's the enchilada recipe with the leftover roast chicken. I have no idea how Spark friendly this is. It is lower in fat because the tortillas aren't fried. You could further lower the fat by using ... Read more

State Parks: A Fitness Bargain

Sunday, December 13, 2009      3 comments

Yesterday we got in a few miles of cross country skiing at Blue Mound State Park. I don't know how far we went, but we took the longest loop in the park. It was a beautiful day after all the snow and cold weather we had in the second half of ... Read more

Today kind of blew

Friday, October 30, 2009      4 comments

Actually, the wind blew really hard. I biked to work as usual. Work was o.k. I don't love my job, but I'm glad I have it. The problem came when it was time to go home. I put my panniers on my bike and in less than a block found that some of... Read more

Shivering away the pounds

Thursday, October 29, 2009      2 comments

So where I work they are re-doing the HVAC system. In October and November. In Wisconsin... They're only re-locating our offices while they are working in our immediate areas, but the heat is off while the air handlers are still on. I'm fair... Read more

Odds and Ends

Sunday, October 11, 2009      1 comments

It seems like there is never enough time. Just 4 weeks ago, I started out on an 80+ mile kayak trip that took 4 days, mostly on 80+ degree days. 4 really glorious days. Although I posted a short blog entry on it, I still want to record it bet... Read more
