Cold, crunchy salad....Yum!
So this weekend, I developed a real hankering (yet another indication I've been living in the South for a long time....Boston boy works the word "hankering" into casual conversation) for a nice, cold, crunchy, flavor-filled salad.
It starte... Read more
What the Pho!
Ahhhh, it's nice to be back home!
So I got busier than I expected this trip and it was all I could do to log nutrition and aerobic points these past few days. The good news is I got in a workout every day, ate pretty well (except for one ni... Read more
"But I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night"
So I'm a little competitive. Most times it's good, sometimes it can be a liability, although I don't do as many of the stupid things today as in years past.
Today, I was an animal.
After a full day of meetings, my brain refused to acce... Read more
A (relatively) relaxing Saturday
Well having a Saturday at home, with some relative freedom, felt pretty good. Started the day off slow, putzing around, getting caught up on e-mail, doing a little reading, etc. When SWMBO went out to get her mani-pedi, I went outside to put tog... Read more
Winning the Daily Double
Well predictably, today's meetings held all the eye-poking excitement of a turtle race. Lots of slides, but as usual, most of the work gets done in the sidebars during the breaks.
Snacks and food were pretty skimpy and none overly healthy, ... Read more
All is right and true with the world....today
Now how weird is this....today I feel more in charge of myself on the road than I do at home. Now "home" has had a very transient feel to it of late, what with house guests, boxing and unboxing, 7 days all 3 of us and 1 cat in a hotel during the... Read more
Memorial Day weekend
It's been a few days since I've blogged. Five days actually. The longest I've gone without blogging since I joined. Not a record I want to break again.
Needless to say, I've been busy. A good busy. Staying healthy busy. Non-fattening busy..... Read more
So today I can feel the totality of the exertion from all this moving taking its toll....I'm beat.
I lessened the load at work this week, front loading meetings in the morning, keeping afternoons free so I could duck over to both houses to ... Read more
Moved in....but not settled in yet
Wow, we're all moved in! Not settled in mind you, but our stuff is all moved from old house to new house! I'm truly amazed...SWMBO and I didn't expect they'd get done till Tuesday.
Now we're not organized & settled yet...stuff is in the rig... Read more
Moving, Moving, Moving.....
Well I was just a little too busy today to worry much about the end of the world. Although if cleanliness is indeed next to Godliness, then I'll be in good standing with the Big Guy...our new place got a serious whammy placed on it.
Oh we'... Read more
Stretch it out
OK, so I get these crazy ideas when I workout hard. And I worked out pretty hard today. The ideas aren't always bad. But I do obsess about them....and then go to great lengths to make them happen,
After dropping my mother off at the airport... Read more
Waiting for Quentin Tarantino's call
Who says empty nesting is bad?!?
We've had a house full of people for almost 3 weeks. Tomorrow, we return to normal....whatever that might be. You see Thursday, we've got the packers coming to box up our stuff so we can move into our new pl... Read more
Spicy Flavor in a Tube!
So these days I'm finding it's easier to maintain my daily calorie count by limiting starches.
It's been a long time coming (really just in the 4 months I've been tracking food on the tracker....and BTW, I'm really digging the changes these... Read more
The Day I've Been Waiting For!
Well today is the day I've been waiting for for 5 months!
I rode my bike. For an hour. It felt great!
I picked it up from its tune-up at the bike shop yesterday on my way home from work (of course I was subject to a late night rainstor... Read more
Waiting, waiting, waiting....
Ahhh travel.....people coming, people going, people talking loud on cell phones as they plant there butts right next to you at the gate.
So starts my blog for tonight. It's a rarity for me to whip out the laptop at the airport, but hey I'm... Read more
