Holiday Blues

Friday, December 26, 2014      2 comments

There are so many things about the holidays that I don't like. The expectation. The potential for bad weather and having to travel. The commercialism and presents free-for-all. Sleeping on the too-soft mattress in my mom's guest room. Having to ... Read more

Trainer Feedback Advice Requested

Wednesday, December 17, 2014      2 comments

My trainer told me yesterday that I only had one more session with her left. She asked if I wanted to renew and in my usual way of avoidance I said, "Let me think about it." I know full well that I will not renew another round of personal traini... Read more

Reducing Sugar Intake

Thursday, December 11, 2014      2 comments

The American Heart Association recommends that we not consume any more than 100 calories of added sugar per day. I'm pretty sure this translates to about 25 grams of sugar, or 6 teaspoons. Yesterday I ate a cookie that had 26 grams of sug... Read more

Eating Less

Monday, November 24, 2014      2 comments

Since I was in London two weeks ago, I've been making a conscious effort to eat a little less than usual. In London, I ate less because food is so expensive there and no one served large portions! LOL I also realized that I was juuuust fine with... Read more

I Found the Problem

Wednesday, October 29, 2014      1 comments

As some of you know, I've been stressing over my frequent breakouts. I have been racking my brain over what could be causing it. The dermatologist prescribed Retin-A, but my insurance company wouldn't pay for it because of my age. Read more

Hiking Today

Sunday, October 12, 2014      2 comments

I had a lovely day hiking in Sky Meadows State Park today! The weather mostly cooperated. We got the hardest part of the hike out of the way at the beginning (the walk up to the overlook is REALLY steep), walked a small portion of the Appalachia... Read more

I enjoyed my training session today. She's mostly having me use the weight machines, and with some of them I saw very clearly how weak I am on my left side. My right arm can push and pull those bars without a problem, and I watched my left arm s... Read more

I have an awful work travel schedule coming up. I will do my best to work out at hotel gyms, but you won't see me around here very much. Here's my itinerary: Sept 22-23: Atlanta Sept 25-26: Chicago Oct 1-3: Nebraska and Kansas Oct 7: ... Read more

I don't know what filled your Twitter feed today, but mine blew up with news about the 20th anniversary of the AmeriCorps program. For those who don't know, AmeriCorps is a national service program in which Americans work for one year at a non-p... Read more

Yesterday I Bought

A SparkFriend blogged about nutritional yeast, something I've only had on kale chips at a vegan restaurant. A friend posted an article on Facebook about apple cider vinegar (the organic kind with "mother"). Yesterday I went over to Wh... Read more
