Yesterday I got back in the pool for the first time in a few weeks. We have a new Masters coach so I signed up and went yesterday morning. It's amazing how paying for those extra sessions is really good motivation to get out of bed early.

I honestly can't tell you where my motivation has gone. Maybe it's just that I've been busy at work and I don't having the energy and concentration for anything else. Well, work has slowed down a little so really, if I'm honest, I DO have the ... Read more
I'm not exactly sure what's wrong with me, but I just cannot seem to get up to exercise. On Monday I really had no excuse, since I woke up before my alarm went off, but then managed to talk myself out of going to strength training.
I went ... Read more
Starting a Whole30 on day 1 of a 30-day month is really handy when it comes to keeping track of what day I'm on.
The weekend went pretty well, except for lunch yesterday. We had a fundraiser at church to pay for the Young Women (teenage gi... Read more
So, my head hurts. Actually, I'm sitting in my darkened office with my AC turned down really low, and it's finally feeling a little better. It's not like I even have a withdrawal headache. Nope, this headache is a direct result of eating too ... Read more
Alright, I'm sick of half-a**ing this. I'm biting the bullet and doing a Paleo Whole30, starting tomorrow. (See, 'cause there are 30 days in June).
I just got back from a short, relaxing trip to Florida to visit family. And to eat mango ... Read more
This week I have been choosing sleep over working out. All this really means is I need to get to bed earlier. Which means in bed by 10, asleep by 10:30. It doesn't help that Jason is a night owl and I kind of feel lame going to bed so early. ... Read more
Seriously, I need to lose weight. Just look at this coat: tinyurl.com/d28e79h ! It is beautiful and I need a new wool coat for work in the worst way. The one I've used for the last several winters is literally falling apart. ... Read more
This morning my alarm went off and I was well aware that I had only had about 6 1/2 hours of fitful sleep. I drank some Diet Coke in the evening to get me through a late work meeting, but I think it made my sleep too light.
I argued with m... Read more
Stupidest reason ever to cut a lunch walk short: my tights gradually sliding over my bum and down my legs.
That's it, these are going in the trash as soon as I get home. This is the 3rd time I've worn them, and the 3rd time I've almost had... Read more
I've been on a quest for yummy treats with a Paleo angle and have found a couple I thought I would share.
Spiced Carrot Cake www.roostblog.com/roost/ spiced-carrot-cake-with-co conut-cream.html : This is so good! I do... Read more
Well, last week wound up being kind of a wash. I just couldn't seem to get up and at 'em at all. Instead, I slept in every day. Well, I say "slept in". Really, I just slept for an extra half hour, then got to work a little early. So I swam ... Read more
I went to my new doctor yesterday, mainly just so I could get my drug hook-up (see previous migraine post). I also got a physical, prescription for a lab work up, and a vaccination. Woo hoo.
My doctor was really nice. I'm to the age wher... Read more
I feel useless this week. It started Tuesday when I was nauseous at Masters swimming. I had a little tiny headache too, but I was mainly feeling completely ill, especially after every flipturn. By Tuesday afternoon, I definitely had a migrain... Read more
