Well it was a successful hectic day! Good food and good fitness! Didn't get an outside walk though... believe it or not, we got a fair amount of rain in Frederick. Wasn't expecting that! But, I still managed to squeak in some fitness time in bet... Read more

Well, all in all it's been a pretty good day. A little bit stressful; but I had good fitness and mostly good nutrition. Dinner wasn't as planned as it should have been. We were having a car worked on so I was waiting for DH to get home. He wound... Read more

I'm having one of those days... my weight was up this morning. I knew it, I didn't feel good. I'm feeling pretty run down and just plain heavy. I'm pretty sure it's just TOM related so I'll be fine in a few. It just sucks. Of course this always ... Read more

We're getting a WHOLE lot of rain; but we actually need some rain. We're still not at the peak of the storm yet. The gutters aren't flooding out anymore, so that's good. We're just getting pretty wet! Actually, we were out doing a little bi... Read more

Well, it's official. DH did break his toe. He's in some pain and limping; but thankfully not in a cast. He also asked me to say thanks to all of you who wished him well! We're getting ready for Hurricane Irene. We just made sure the gutters... Read more

Despite my best intentions, I didn't get to be early. I DID however, get to bed on time for a change. After I posted my quick little blog last night, I got up to head for bed. I looked around and realized that I had let some of the household pap... Read more

Sorry folks! I'm just bushed. I managed to get in my ST for upper body and 40 minutes of cardio. So, I'm going to call it a night and get some rest. I'll catch you all... Read more

It's been a pretty good day today. I tried a new core body workout last night. I'm still in search of one that doesn't involve laying flat on my back. I just found out that my brother (10 year younger brother...) has the same degenerative back d... Read more

It's late, but I just have to share! Before everyone thinks I'm nuts, as part of my summer challenge, we're supposed to send ourselves a goody every day this week - at first I thought it was kind of silly and I felt stupid. But, today, I'm takin... Read more
