My Beloved Zeus - Best German Shepherd Ever!
When we lived in Jacksonville, FL, there was a pet shop that we stopped in whenever we went to that particular shopping center. We cooed and cuddled all the precious babies, well, all the large breed babies, anyway. We liked to dream about the G... Read more
Sweet Caroline? Really?! Wow, this was a big mistake.
Just over 3 weeks ago, I thought that I would give Spinning classes a try. My gym added an "Intro to Spin" class on Tuesday mornings, so I figured, aside from having to wake up at the inhumane hour of 9am, an intro class would be perfect for me.... Read more
New babies always make me smile!
I have a tweaked knee that's been bothering me for a couple of weeks now. It comes and goes, mostly, it doesn't like inclines or declines, shoes with modest heels or pedaling a bike and certain Zumba moves make it scream! I've been trying to bab... Read more
4/10 Numbers for the Week and Goals Met and Failed
Sunday afternoon and I have to confess: I missed a day. I'm so bummed, but I'm going to continue my 100 Day Challenge, just tag it differently. So today is Day 37(-1). The week had more highs than lows, though, so I'm ok with it. Here are my nu... Read more

Sunday afternoon introspection: Streak of days with at least 30 mins of activity is at 30, but wow, did I cut it close or barely make it a couple of days! So here's the breakdown of distances and times for this week:

Just like that, it's Sunday afternoon again. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the week. Not perfect, but pretty darn good. Streak of days with a minimum of at least 30 mins of activity is now at 23! Distance and times for this week, with Zumba as ... Read more
3/20 Numbers for the Week
Sunday afternoon again. I'm happy that my 30 minute minimum streak stayed intact this week - that makes 16 days in a row. Not much else to be happy about. This is what I did this week, distance and times. Zumba and step class is shown as "other"... Read more
Excuse me, I don't mean to be rude, but... I know what the problem is...
Excuse me, ma'am? Yes, you - the heavyset lady in the XXXL t-shirt and the rattiest pair of sweatpants I have ever seen. I'm sorry, I don't mean to be rude, but I don't know your name. I know your face, as I've been seeing you at my gym since Ja... Read more

OMG! I finally found a use for GOLF!
March 6, 2011. Um, really? Are we sure about that? I'm fairly certain that it was the first week of February just last week. Time simply could not have slipped away that quickly...
My husband and I both came down with horrid cases of the fl... Read more
1/2/11 - To My Favorite Cyclist
I met a skinny, cute guy at a Halloween party in 1985. I was there to dance (and look amazing in my one-shouldered, asymmetrical, toga that barely hit mid-thigh) and he was there to decorate the club for the occasion. Long, very wavy hair that c... Read more
1/1/11 - How I'm going to shrink my backside this month
I don't like resolutions, there's something about them that just seems arbitrary. I do better with specific goals and challenges. After being very scattered, on-again, off-again with my fitness for much too much of 2010, I decided I needed a jum... Read more
OK, yes, I admit it: Stacy and Clinton were right all along
For 7 years now, What Not To Wear has been on the air, desperately trying to teach American women that wearing ill-fitting, inappropriate, mis-matched clothing does a woman a huge disservice. For 7 years, I have been watching Stacy and Clinton t... Read more
