So I've got to admit, I suffered some "gender embarrassment" today. My extra office time this weekend paid off....by about 10:30, it looked like I could actually take a bit of a break before my 1:00 meeting. So I ducked out at 11:00 and hit... Read more

For whatever reason, I woke up this morning thinking it was Monday! Like an automaton, I started in on my AM routine, perplexed that my alarm had not gone off as it usually does on Monday morning, when it hit me, "It's Sunday still, isn't i... Read more

Well I couldn't put it off any longer.....I collected up all my tax papers today and got everything ready to get to my tax guy so he can finally get them done this next week. It's always a major pain the ass, especially since we have houses we r... Read more

Routine....I like it!

Friday, April 06, 2012      8 comments

So I, like many others, like to think of myself as unique, as daring, as one who can slip the surly bounds of Earth and live a life of constant change and adventure. But today I realized that I really like routine....my routine. I've b... Read more

Wednesday, March 28, 2012      6 comments

SWMBO tells me that, as sentient beings, we cannot love inanimate objects. Yet I have this powerful feeling, this strange attraction, affection maybe....no it definitely feels a lot like love....for my heart rate monitor. I mean, if I can't... Read more

Veni...Vidi...Vici

Tuesday, March 27, 2012      11 comments

So If I had to pin down the biggest change in my thinking since joining Sparkpeople, I'd have to say that today, I look for opportunities to workout. Before, working out was something I "had to do". Now it's something I look for openings where I... Read more

I've got to admit, I was a little leery about working out today. Being on the road these past 3 weeks, I haven't had a session with trainer guy since 2 March. While I've been working out on my own, both cardio and ST, I haven't been doing t... Read more
