Here's Radar, a sweetheart of a Mini Pinsher that landed in our laps about six weeks ago. Turns out he has a liver problem. We only found out after taking him in to get his... Read more
I've Been Gone So Long

Yeah, that classic Motown song is running through my mind right now. Gypsygoth just asked if I were still around, and I'm embarrassed to say, no I haven't been. My participation siphoned off two or three months ago because I *FINALLY* got ... Read more

And I only did the first 30 minutes of his Tae Bo Bootcamp DVD (the first workout). I don't have his special rubber band thingies, but it didn't matter--I did 3 lb weights for a couple of the exercises and nearly died. That's what I get for... Read more
Vrooom! Restarting that engine
Friday, January 04, 2013      0 comments

The engine meaning me and my iffy starter motor, if you want to take the analogy further. Level 1 of RIP30 just about knocked me out on Wednesday. So did my usual stretching routine with the 30 second plank--which, I have discovered, is muc... Read more

This is the corner with the Christmas decorations at my daughter's high school's office. They had Star of Davids, etc up in the window, too. I'm smacking my forehead ... Read more
A short whine

Don't know what's wrong with me. I KNOW I feel good after doing a DVD with JM (even if I'm sweating so much my headband gets 3x heavier). I should just "DO IT" and get it over with..and that's the problem right there. "Get it over with". I... Read more
Turkey day round up

Thanksgiving was surprisingly stress-free this year. I guess it helped that I took a three hour nap shortly after dinner (altho my husband wasn't happy about that). But the turkey turned out great, didn't do anything fancy to it. Love Trader Joe... Read more

This morning I bought a Starbucks mocha frappuccino, (the kind in the glass bottle you can buy in the grocery store) mostly out of habit, and because I remember them tasting so good, my toddler son would steal them from me and suck them down! (... Read more
Sucked into the Blackhole of the Internet
Friday, November 09, 2012      1 comments

I need a kick in the ass. Seriously. Yesterday I entered the Internet Zone--meaning, somehow, I wasted ALL my free time on the internet. I could NOT drag myself away at all. I had all morning and afternoon to get re-started on my work-outs... Read more
Oodles of Excuses & Noodle Time
Thursday, November 08, 2012      0 comments

Argh, I haven't worked out or stretched for a week now. An Entire week! Sure enough, my muscles have tightened, and while I can feel my muscles in their more toned form, and the aches/strains are finally gone, I'm feeling ashamed of myself for l... Read more

Does Messy = Overweight & Unfit?

Oh, I hope not. I am not a naturally organized person. I've never been able to keep papers from piling up on each other. Yup. That's my desk. It's two years old but s... Read more

A little SP background: I've been a member before. I know, I know. And then I quit it because I don't think I was ready to focus so much on what I was eating, and what I had to do to lose the weight. Didn't think so much about the exercise part ... Read more
