Time marches on
Here we are, already half way through August. It seems to me that the older I get, the shorter my summers are and the longer the winters seem to be. Our garden has really been producing well, and I'm enjoying lots of fresh produce daily. Rig... Read more
You know how some daily reflections hit harder than others. Here is the one I opened today from Spark People:
And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Good week for cardio
I have been doing great on my cardio this week. It's amazing what a little break from the heat and humidity will do for one's motivation. Well, that and my cold has lifted and I'm feeling way better. I truly am such a suck with a cold, and I ... Read more
I really need to get into this more again. I used to write in my journal daily, and now I'm lucky to get weekly notes jotted down. And when I do come here, I have to try and think of what to say. And I know that I am realizing this on a day b... Read more
Another July is almost history
Bought a big box of blueberries on Saturday morning, and I've found a delicious way to eat them (who am I kidding - any way to eat blueberries is delicious). Take a cup of blueberries, and top it off with a couple spoonfuls of mango flavoured n... Read more
Back in the Saddle, again!
Went out for a bike ride this morning, 7.63 miles in already hot and humid conditions. I have never sweated like that during a bike ride before. I couldn't get the sweat to stop dripping off my face. The temperature hit 38 yesterday, with a h... Read more

Well, we've met! Trish and I have been on this journey almost since day one, pushing and prodding and congratulating each other every step of the way.
The day was warm and sunny. I got the call that Trish was already at the park, and flew... Read more

Mist in the Valley
This morning I went out to get my 5k done for our virtual races that the Rookie Runners hold each month. I left the house at 5 am, and caught some of the most beautiful scenery. There was a mist over several areas, as we have had lots of rain ... Read more
Canada Day weekend

The Real Start to Summer
So today I write my MacroEconomics exam. Once that is out of the way, I can relax and really feel like summer's here. Why, oh why, did I ever want to do a summer session???? Oh yeah, Spark People got me going with their set goals and go after... Read more
Back from the lake
Well, it was an awesome weekend. The weather was perfect. The company we shared was pretty fine. I even got to sing some Karaoke (from the movie sound track Grease). I love that!!
The kids had company stay too, so we never heard from th... Read more
This morning, my resting heart rate was 52. I always count it for a full minute, and I always do it twice (over two minutes), to get an accurate reading. The first read was 51 and the second was 52, so I'll go with the 52. That is the lowest ... Read more
"Many people report to me that as they're approaching their goal weight they often sabotage themselves and all of their efforts. They wonder why that is. It doesn't seem to make any sense. In fact, you may be able to relate to that experience.

Getting a focus again.
My shoulder is feeling better every day. I have been doing wall reaching exercises, and I can reach higher now too. Hopefully it isn't the effects of the cortisone, but that it truly is getting better.
When I downloaded the info from my n... Read more
