And, to top it ... Read more
Excellent planner or slightly obsessive?

If you've read my blog in the last couple of days, you'll know that I got a new Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) on Sunday. Monday, I couldn't seem to push the buttons correctly to make it work. I'm blaming it on lack of caffeine and sunshin... Read more
If you read my blog yesterday, you know that I got a new HRM. And, as you probably already know, I am not a morning exercising kind of person. I don't get up in the morning to exercise unless I know my friend will be at the gym to greet me. W... Read more
I got one! I got one!!!
DH and I decided we needed to run some errands today (without kids, of course!). We left the house shortly after noon and got some lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings. We both ordered the grilled chicken sandwich. He had fries, I had a salad, all sau... Read more
Why are the weekends so evil?
Monday through Friday, I plan my breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks. I even eat them all at about the same time each day. But come the weekend, planning is gone! Out the window! Poof!! And then I make less than stellar food choices.

Korea is a no, but is Taiwan a go?
About two weeks ago, the boss stopped by and said that if we audit "C" company, he wanted to send me as well. Since then, I've not heard anything else from him.
Last night during a conference call with company "C," our auditor starting d... Read more

As many of you know, my son plays football here in our hometown. To help streamline the dissemination of information, coaches get things like the practice area, game schedule, team roster. You know, actual playing football stuff.

Jillian Michaels analogy
I've discovered podcasts for my iPhone. I download whatever I feel like listening to and then listen at work. Helps drown out all the extra noise and nothing I download requires serious thought and concentration. If I miss something, I can ba... Read more
I checked out the book "You: The Owner's Manual" by Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen. It is very thick and I do not have the time (nor the desire) to read the whole thing. My plan was to read the book and figure out what happens inside your body when you... Read more
