The Man Side of the Gym

Thursday, March 17, 2011      6 comments

I can't even believe it. Yesterday I made it to the gym right after school. One of the busiest times of the day and I went. I left IMMEDIATELY after bus duty - didn't stop to talk to anyone - and that seems to be the key. Nobody saying "wow ... Read more

Keep calm and carry on.

What a great line. And it's been popping up everywhere... like it's a sign for me. I'm glad I have all of you. Really, truly, I am. I am just about over my muffins sticking to the liners, and I'm ready for the day. Tonight is medita... Read more

I baked muffins tonight for a baby shower tomorrow. I thought it would be really cute to put them in baby muffin liners... they have little footprints on them and are super cute. The problem is, the muffins don't really come off of the liners.... Read more

This morning I had a pleasant surprise - a call that school was closed! Turns out that there was so much flooding that they had to close two local school districts. And even though it's another day we have to make up at the end of the year, I ... Read more

Yesterday's lunch was spent talking about what we were going to give up for Lent. I am not religious, but I like to view Lent as a time to give up one of my vices. In the past, I've given up soda for Lent and didn't go back. I tell this story... Read more

Is there any better way to start a morning?

- Totally unexpected two-hour delay. Even better than a snow day at this point - we don't have to make this up! - Tummy is happy (knock on wood). It even grumbled a little bit because it was hungry! - Scale was kind to me this morning. Ye... Read more

On the last day of February I started my New Rules of Lifting for Women workouts. I was all excited to really get going with them in March. But my tummy had other plans for me. Tuesday morning I woke up with a little tickle in my tummy and by... Read more

So I guess yesterday's morning of feeling sick wasn't just a fluke... I took a sick day today with what I am self-diagnosing as the stomach flu (which, I learned, is not actually the flu). All I have eaten today is two bananas and some crackers... Read more

Lately I have been coming home from school and either sleeping or eating bread. But today, to celebrate March, a good friend and I are going walking after school. I'm not sure how warm it's going to be, but a little bundling up never hurt a... Read more

I am in a funk. A serious funk here, people. Well, maybe not *serious*, but a funk nonetheless. I feel like Thursday and Friday's BEAUTIFUL weather was a big "Eff you" from Mother Nature, who promptly brought us back into the single digit tem... Read more

Presidents' Day = lots of baking

Monday, February 21, 2011      5 comments

Today I did some baking. A LOT of baking. Mocha-swirl pound cake this morning, whole-wheat bread for dinner (Brad made the dough, I just put it in the oven), and apricot-bran muffins to put in the freezer for breakfasts/snacks. And today I wa... Read more
