I was just outside weeding the garden, and this is what came out from under a rock:
It wasn't really big, but it sure made me jump!
I went to yoga tonight, and bo... Read more
Buca da Blah
Yesterday honey and I went to visit his parents. His mom wanted to take us out to eat, which is fine. I was all ready to make some good menu choices, but we went to Buca da Beppo which, if you've never been there, serves gigantic family-size p... Read more

A rainy Sunday = a blah blog.

Water - YES
Water at breakfast - YES

time to read - well, I took a two hour nap and watched a movie - I count those two things as some good "Me Time.... Read more
Feeling good at 5:00 am
I didn't go to bed particularly early last night. In fact, it was relatively late when I got to sleep - 10:15 pm. Usually it's between 9-9:30 when I fall asleep. The birds started chirping, I didn't feel tired anymore, so I thought "it must b... Read more
One of the most interesting things that's happened since I've been doing more fun outdoor stuff after school is that Friday, while still a wonderful day, does not have the same feeling as it once did. I used to think "OMG I can do just what I w... Read more
The girl who cried wolf.
This is how I feel today. "I'm going to run tonight." "I'm going to do some ST tonight." Well, for the last three days none of this happened. I got really lazy. I often think "just suck it up and do it," but I just couldn't. Last night I c... Read more
I did it!
I successfully gave up baked goods and candy for 10 days. I'm going to continue this for another 10 days - this time, though, "baked goods" is changing to "pre-packaged baked goods." This way, if I feel like making a cookie, I can eat it. I a... Read more

PR!!!!! Yahoooooo!!!!! The clock time was 31:10; I'm still waiting to see what my chip time was. Last year my time was 31:35! I am SOOOOO excited.
It was a beautiful day for a run. Clear, a good temperature, not too hot at the gun (whi... Read more
In my quest to learn more about myself I've been reading "enlightening" books. I recently read most of a book about how giving to other people makes a person happier. In the book were many examples of how we can give to people - we can give th... Read more

Hump Da Dump
I got home from school yesterday and all I wanted to do was crash. I didn't even stop to pick up my prescription; all I wanted to do was come home. I had some sea bass that honey left for me, and packed my lunch (at least I got *that* part of ... Read more
I was nervous about this morning - I like to review my goals from they day before and see if I did everything. Since I didn't do a whole lot last night, I thought for sure I didn't do everything I set out to do. But you know what ? I *did* do... Read more
Monday - Day 3
It's day 3 of the No Baked Goods/Candy challenge. Yesterday I went out to lunch with my mom and brother and I was sure the desserts were going to tempt me. But they didn't. I didn't even get up to look at them! I ate my lunch slowly, drank a... Read more
My brother bought me the most wonderful gift for my birthday last year. An egg toaster. It cooks the egg and toasts the bread, and the two are done at exactly the same time. I don't know how I lived without it. I eat egg toast (that's what I... Read more
