School is winding down and I can finally start thinking about how I'm going to take care of myself this summer. My goals are only weekly right now - it's hard for me to keep track of anything longer. So this week I will:
Get to the gym th... Read more
The hottest 5K ever.
This morning I ran in the Tortoise and Hare 5K in a very nice little town. The race started at 9:00. I left my house at 7:15, and it was already hot. Like really hot. By the time I got to the park, it was REALLY hot. It must have been in th... Read more
My first real egg!
I bought eggs from the farm on Friday. Today when I cooked my egg, I saw the vibrant yolk. I never knew that eggs had a smell, but I smelled the egg when it cooked (it was a good smell). The yolk tasted amazing. It was unlike anything I ever... Read more
Reflections about May
It's the last Saturday of the month, so I think I'll do some reflecting.
Fitness: I didn't burn a ton of calories, but I was pretty consistent. There was one week in there where the fitness minutes were lacking... I made an effort to get o... Read more
Weekly fitness goal - DONE!
This week's goal was to get to the gym three times *before* school. I made it four times. Yahoo! I have two more weeks of this challenge - and then school is out. Hooray!
The no candy streak started and ended today. I had a 3 Musketeer... Read more
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 rainy Sunday = a blah blog.
Did I meet yesterday's goals?
Water - YES
Water at breakfast - YES
house into shape - 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
T-minus 18 days
Forget Spring Fever, I have Summer Fever!
The second grade musical is finished, the art show is done... I'm ready for summer.
I love my job, I really really do. I am lucky to be working where I am and lucky to have such a great position. B... Read more
Run for the Red - and Run for the...
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
