I haven't been on my bike for two weeks since my DH took a spill and dislocated his ring finger. I had been away from it for a couple weeks before that. Did a little stationary bike last week, but it's not the same as being outside. I have s... Read more

Yoga for body and soul

Thursday, July 01, 2010      6 comments

Eating before strength training

Wednesday, June 23, 2010      4 comments

Sometimes it take me several experiences with the same problem to realize what I need to change. That will not be true with this situation. Usually I work with a trainer 2 times a month about 15 minutes after I finish an early morning yoga cla... Read more

Oh, what a week it will be!
