Sunday's To-Dos did not get done.
Woke up today and felt worse than yesterday... so I took it easy. I did manage to freeze some squash, which was a big thing. Took my car to get its 100K mile work done, watched some football (the Eagles barely eked it out today) and then the l... Read more
So I was starting to feel a little more lumpy and bumpy than usual, and I think it had a lot to do with a lack of pushing myself during my workouts. It was starting to get into a *bad* routine, where I was too comfortable with the weights I was... Read more
This one looked like fun and I don't have much to blog about tonight... tomorrow maybe.
1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? Closed, now that there are curtains over the doors. The previous owner of our house put in mirr... Read more
Only 7:15 and already a good choice!
My alarm went off this morning at 5:02. Bleh. Wednesday is an early gym day, and today I really didn't want to go. So I hit snooze. But I didn't go back to sleep... instead, I thought about not going to the gym. I would have been awake anyw... Read more
Let's try again... cereal is hidden away, I have dinner planned, and my snacks are planned out as well.
- lots and lots and lots of water. I haven't been getting enough water lately, and I keep thinking I'm hungry even when I'm no... Read more
Solving problems the elementary way...
A behavior strategy for elementary kids is to have them fill out a paper explaining what the problem behavior was, how they could have handled it differently, etc. The idea is to have them think about what they did and how the situation can be ... Read more

Finally, a goal!
I have been really slacking on the running. I still call myself a runner, but I haven't been getting the mileage in that I need to in order to improve. I haven't run a 5K since early summer, and I don't know that I've run anything longer than ... Read more
Friday night sweatpants
There are few things more wonderful than coming home from school on Friday, throwing on a pair of sweatpants, and making the couch my home for the night. This was the first Friday of the school year - last week was the Labor Day holiday, so I d... Read more
Tuesday night was an insane gym session. I took kickboxing for the first time, and it really kicked my butt. I apparently have muscles in my rear that I didn't even know about. I am looking forward to more next Tuesday.
I wasn't sure if ... Read more
Well, I guess I am still learning what works and what doesn't work.

Goals - first full week of September
Actually, it's more of a schedule than goals. But I guess the goal would be to stick to the schedule.
Tuesday: yoga, kickboxing (if I can get a hold of some wraps), dinner. I looked all over the place for handwraps, and I can't find any i... Read more
Satur... er, Friday
All morning it felt like Saturday. I went running with my buddy (yahoo!) and set the alarm for 7:00. Hooray 4-day weekend!
My buddy and I went up to the local school (it's a HUGE campus!) and ran/walked around for about 35 minutes. It was s... Read more
This will be short. I'm exhausted and I'd really like to be on the couch right now watching some football.
Drank tons of water today.
Went to the gym after school for a little TM and a stretch class.
Have been doing well with ... Read more
