Days 3 and 4
Sunday, I got a set of kettlebells and did the kettlebell workout video here on SP. Fun! I am leaving them in the living room right now as a reminder to pick them up a few times a day. I need resistance work.
Monday, picked up the kettlebel... Read more
I met an old friend who was in town from Texas Saturday. We went to a bar to chat--I had one small beer, and no food. I focused on catching up and talking, not eating and drinking.... Read more

Bye bye 2013, hello 2014
I always look forward to a new year--new start, new possibilities. I have loads of resolutions, some just fun (play my violin more, write for fun more), some serious (lose weight, exercise). I'm trying to find some creative resolutions as well--... Read more
The scene: last night, getting ready to go to a party
The problem: The one dress I have that still fits has a stain on the front I hadn't noticed. What to wear?
The action: Going through dozens of outfits, either they don't fit, look awful, ... Read more
Once more with feeling!
So I keep *saying* that I'm going to get on track, but yet, somehow....
