Saturday, April 04, 2015      7 comments

One of the things I've been trying to do is get out of my comfort zone and do things I never thought I could. This year, I entered 5 things in the local arts festival juried art competition. Last year I entered 2 and one got in, the other di... Read more

Last weekend, my sons did the Marine Corps 1775- a tough 11+ mile course through the Prince William Forest in VA. They did great - both under 2 hours and both in the top half of the crowd. The race sells out in minutes because if you finish... Read more

Lately, I've dug out my old exercise tapes. Yes, tapes (you millenials may not know what they are but in the 90s those were our YouTube and bluerays). Anyway, most of them have the instructor and a 3 or 4 people cast behind her. One of those ... Read more

I have been stuck on this frustrating plateau for months. It gets so frustrating! I mean, in many ways I should be happy- I didn't gain over the holidays. I didn't up size my clothes but after a big drop after my last plateau this is frustra... Read more

I feel G-O-O-D good

Friday, February 13, 2015      7 comments

Last night I had to go to a meeting after a long day at work that I was dreading. It could either be a quick informational presentation OR (I feared) a rambling whine session. I had to wait 30 minutes between finishing work and the the start o... Read more

So, right now, I have 3 formal challenges -- one through Map My Walk to get exercise and freebies daily, one from Meta for healthy lifestyle changes (snacks, sleep, water, etc), and the Winter 5%. I am just the kind of person who needs a chal... Read more

I need to make my life more like Zumba

Saturday, January 03, 2015      6 comments

At Zumba this morning, I was reflecting on some reasons it is one of the happiest hours of my week. I know about exercise producing endorphins, but I am talking more about an attitude thing. Don't feel you need to be perfect. You can d... Read more

The injustice of "just"

Monday, October 20, 2014      9 comments

When I am saying just, I am not talking about "fair" I am talking about the descriptor that diminishes your accomplishments. My sister and I went to the Waddell and Reed Kansas City Marathon Saturday. We weren't doing the full marathon. ... Read more

I know - it's the slogan, but the Color Run really was fun and happy. The traffic and parking were bad- I didn't know there would be 10,000 paricipants! It was crazy. I got there and actually ran into my college son. I got my swag and gave ... Read more
