Almost time to go home...

Sunday, April 13, 2014      0 comments

Well, my time in Portland is almost over. I will be moving back to LA in a couple of months. In time for a sunny summer on the beach, when I'm not working. And family and friends I have not seen in too long. I am so happy to be going home. A... Read more

Smoochie news

I cannot believe just last month I thought my poor Beagle was on death's door. He was NOT doing well, having all kinds of neurological problems. I was sure he had a brain tumor. Well, a round of prednisone and discontinuing a couple of meds m... Read more

Killing myself with a 5K and serious ST. Cannot wait till tomorrow (and the next day!) I should be oh so sore... LOVE that feeling. Unfortunately, the diet has gone to $#it, as I have been seriously sleep deprived (not a lot of choice w... Read more

So yesterday, I tried and tried to talk myself into going to the gym... And I was walking toward my closet, nearly in tears, because I was so tired all I wanted to do was sleep. Finally I realized, working out is great, but sometimes you gotta... Read more

The pain is so sweet

I met with my fitness trainer yesterday for an evaluation, which included a mini workout that has made the simple things, like putting on socks, really difficult today. I am sore in places I don't know have ever been sore before. Read more

So I joined a gym on Saturday, did a 5K on the treadmill (walk/run) at 1% (to make up for the ease of running on the treadmill vs ground). Not too shabby. But wow, did I hurt that night and Sunday. And just when I felt so sore and stiff today... Read more

So, after a good beating up session, where I pretty much made myself feel like a big pile of sh*, I finally hit bottom. I was ready to bounce. Today I went to the gym and signed up for a year. And 3 personal trainer sessions, so I would ... Read more

Lumpy bumpy blah...

Tuesday, February 21, 2012      2 comments

Blah. That is how I feel about myself. A big fat blah. A lumpy bump of blah. A useless, spineless blah. Where has the will power gone? Where is my inspiration? Why am I doing this to myself? So I sit and commiserate and eat. ... Read more

So first, I must admit up front that I totally fell off the exercise wagon after moving to Portland. First it was moving in and unpacking and shopping for necessities. I was walking my dog. So I was getting some exercise, I guess. At least t... Read more

So I am finally in Portland, and I have internet! My dog & cats are settling in. My furniture arrives today, so I will have a bed rather than a floor to sleep on. And a dining room table. But I will be spending the next week finding stuff fo... Read more

After thinking that I had lost my iPod touch on thursday, I was first panicked, then panicked some more when I realized I had to go home and change all my email passwords, then I just spent the rest of the night in a stressed-out daze. BUT ... Read more

This was a great weekend for getting stuff done - I have done a massive clean-up of my front yard in preparation for next weekend's yard sale. I have separated, organized, and put aside all kinds of stuff for the yard sale, which I hope will be... Read more
