Thursday, August 25, 2011      3 comments

So day 4 of my staycation went very well. Still had to spend about 2 hours at work for a telecon, but, by riding my bike there, I made sure to go for a nice long ride afterwards. Finished up a few more honey-do's around the house, then made an ... Read more

Death by Peanut Butter

Tuesday, August 23, 2011      6 comments

Jif....creamy, sweet, savory, peanut buttery Jif. It's my downfall I don't know who decided it would be a good idea to crush peanuts and blend them up into a creamy concoction you pump into a jar, but it was sheer genius I tell you. T... Read more

Monday, August 22, 2011      11 comments

So here's my danger zone; it's not that I can get too busy for Spark People....oh no....I enter the danger zone when I have too much free time and give myself permission to take it easy. Here's the story of how I, by taking a week's vacatio... Read more

Wednesday, August 03, 2011      1 comments

Well our Santa Fe adventure continues to be a blast (I leaned over to SWMBO during one of our walks and asked if she might consider moving here when/if I ever retire....quizzical, non-committal look and a grunt) We're digging the cool, dry ... Read more

Saturday, July 30, 2011      3 comments

Well we finally made it to Santa Fe, at the tail end of one of my more hectic weeks. I had planned to take Friday off, but my jaunt into the office to "knock out a little paperwork" turned into an 8:00-5:00 labor of love. Then I hit the gym... Read more

Blogging, Weight Loss, and Moonwalking with Einstein

Monday, July 18, 2011      0 comments

It really is too easy to slack off from blogging. Like anything else good for us, it's only as good as our dedication to making it a part of our lives. "Well what else have you been up to" you might ask? Don't ask. Just the standa... Read more

Tuesday, July 12, 2011      5 comments
