Lazy Day . . . .
For all intents and purposes I had intended to get in a great workout at the gym today, then work on last year's taxes which I still haven't filed, do some laundry, grocery shop, and clean the house. Instead I have done none of it. The day is ... Read more

Rain, Rain Go Away . . . .
Well, it has been a while since I updated my blog. In the last few weeks my brother, his wife, and two little girls came to visit for two weeks from Victoria, BC. As much as I love them, they shot my routine all to hell, so I'm starting over t... Read more
Only 7 AM and the Day is Shot . . . .
I woke up at 5:30 with menstrual cramps. I got up, grabbed some Advil, and went back to bed. I couldn't get back to sleep, so I decided to get up to get ready for work. That wasn't such a big deal, as my alarm was set to go off at 6 AM anyway... Read more

Trying to Fight to Emotional Eating
I'm bored. It is pouring rain. There is thunder and lightening. And all I can to is think about eating. I know I'm not actually hungry. I had a very filling dinner with whole grains, a lean protein source, and three servings of veggies. I'... Read more
