Spring sprouts and seedlings!

Friday, April 24, 2015      7 comments

A few weeks back, I started the process of sprouting seeds. The lettuces didn't sprout, so I'm currently attempting round 2 of lettuce sprouting. SOME of the herbs sprouted - I tried 3 each of basil, cilantro, parsley, and oregano. 2 ea... Read more

The Annual Climbers Cleanup

Sunday, April 19, 2015      13 comments

Yesterday was the Annual Climbers Clean-up at Devil Lake...and the mountaineering group I joined sent a group for graffiti removal! I REALLY questioned whether or not to go. I ran an Earth Day 5K that morning (of course, I questioned wheth... Read more

This week...the NACHO debate

Saturday, April 11, 2015      12 comments

It's been one of those weeks - between the back-to-school blues, heavy workload and deadlines, cold and rainy weather...I've really been craving comfort food. Which for me = NACHOS! I gave in and had some last night, but this is how I've... Read more

Where I recommit...

Friday, April 03, 2015      12 comments

One thing I've learned is that I never really start over... I have all of the extra weight I gained, but also the extra experience and knowledge. I never have to go back to square one. So instead of starting over...I recommit. As I... Read more

Yesterday, I went hiking with a couple of friends at a park I hadn't visited yet - Blue Mounds State Park. It was beautiful!! The weather was perfect, in the low 40's, but there was still a lot of snow on the ground. And we timed it to ... Read more

Outdoors...

Saturday, February 21, 2015      13 comments

It's been a great weekend so far! Yesterday, I went snow shoeing on the lake, and today I went cross-country skiing. The place we went was a lot hillier than the place I went last time, so I KNOW I got a great workout! But I'm not sure ... Read more

Ten Pounds?!

Wednesday, February 18, 2015      15 comments

Over the years, as I have gained, and lost, and regained yet more...10 pounds kind of stopped seeming significant. After all, when your entire goal is 10 pounds it's huge! When it's a quarter, or less, of your goal, you just don't feel like it... Read more

Pause...

Sunday, February 15, 2015      13 comments

In early January, I fell off a bouldering wall. Badly sprained my ankle... I was in a brace full-time for two weeks, then I could only take it off at home for another two weeks... It would swell up just from a long walk for the first ... Read more

My First Painting

Friday, February 13, 2015      16 comments

It's been one of those really crappy weeks where I should have just stayed in bed! Actually, it started last week - when I went for my first run since hurting my ankle, and it swelled up and ached the whole next day. I iced it, babied it, and ... Read more

This weekend, I finally managed to go for my first cross-country skiing trip! I was one of several beginners on the trip - and we had a REALLY hard time staying upright once we were going downhill! At one point, the guy in front of me fell... Read more

So, it's a fact: Miss Kitty is the cutest, sweetest, funniest, smartest, greatest cat in the whole world. You can trust me. I'm not biased! :) Her bathtub antics continue...and somehow, in spite of myself, I cannot stop taking pictures a... Read more

Winter Carnival

Monday, February 02, 2015      15 comments

Tonight was the outdoor club's big welcome back event...and coming on the heels of this weekend's blizzard, it was a beautiful night to get out and explore! It was also my first time walking on the lake - I've been so nervous that the ice will ... Read more
