Are the Running Gods Finally Smiling Upon Me?
So, the last time I ran (last Friday), I barely made it through those 1:40 runs that I had finally bumped up to. But I forced myself to do the full 1:40 on every one of them, even when I felt like my legs were going to collapse underneath me, a... Read more
Back to Reality
Back to work after a nice break, and I've been hopping, in meetings most of the day. :-p
It was like 30 when we woke up this morning and although it was Paul's turn to walk the dog he said hell no, we're not going out in that cold. Note... Read more
Last day of Thanksgiving break. :-( Kate's not happy - after a week and a half of short days (parent-teacher conferences), and then an entire week off, she's going to have to buckle down and get back to work tomorrow, LOL!
Took Bam-Bam fo... Read more
The Day After the Day After
Love having all this time off - I keep thinking it's Sunday, and then I have the lovely realization that it's only Saturday! :-)
No workout today, technically, but I spent an hour raking leaves and getting them loaded into the green waste ... Read more
Started the Day After with Some Running!
Yesterday was a really nice day - we had a big dinner at Paul's parents' house. Paul's sister was there, but her partner was at her own mom's house. So it was all of us plus my dad and his girlfriend. I was by no means "good," but I definitel... Read more
Soooo cold this morning, I just wanted to stay snuggled down in my flannel sheets, but I got up and did some yoga and I'm so glad I did! Felt great. I can almost do full yoga breathing again, yay! Still have to breathe through my mouth for up... Read more
Looks like it's gonna rain any minute, yay! Hopefully we get lots, we need it sooooo badly here in drought-stricken California.
Anyhow, happily it didn't rain on my walk with the dog this morning...it was funny, we got a GORGEOUS sunrise f... Read more
Men....Paul told me last night that he was going to set the alarm a little later for today since we wouldn't have to get the kiddo out the door (no school this week). Well, silly me, I assumed he meant that he'd set it for 6:30 instead of 6am. ... Read more
When In Doubt, Just Go to the Doctor ...You Might Be Glad You Did
So, I've had weird stuff going on all week. I've been waking up every morning with tons of junk in my nose, particularly my left nostril, and when I clean it out it's all black, like dried blood. That started last weekend. Then since Wednesda... Read more
Back in the Saddle
Weird day yesterday...I didn't feel good when I got up, was very unsteady walking to the bathroom, and ended up passing out! I was a bit feverish, but after sleeping several hours and eating and showering, I was basically fine, just slightly we... Read more
Got a couple-mile-walk in with the pooch this morning....brrrr! It was still only 40 when we left for work. Winter has definitely arrived all at once! But we're finally getting some fall color, it's so pretty. Nothing can beat all those amaz... Read more
Bumping Up the Running
Today it was Paul's turn to walk the dog so I decided it would be a running day for me! I've been doing run 1:30, walk 2:00 for a while, though last week I managed to do 1:40 runs. But today, my first run was barely a minute and a half. Which... Read more
Brrrrrr, there is a super chilly wind out there today! Like 42 isn't cold enough. (I know, that's nothing for some of you, but it's cold for Northern California!).
Anyhow, I took Bam-Bam for a a little over 2-mile walk and I just never ... Read more
One Choice at a Time
First of all, I just want to say THANK YOU for all the love and cheerleading on my blog yesterday. I truly do appreciate it! We're all in this together, right?
A Bad, Bad, Bad Realization...
Okay, brace yourself peeps, this is likely gonna be a long blog....
First, the fun stuff...we scored two free tix to the "Best of Sacramento" party at the Convention Center last night - free food, wine, beer, and live music. Sounded fun, a... Read more
