Red Dress Party!!
Yes, I said that right. I am not talking so much about a red party dress, as a red dress party.
This started with a blog a friend wrote (off-SP). She gets affected by the season, and tends to want to do rash, impractical things...not suita... Read more
The new plan
I'm not gonna lie. I've been a lazy @ss lately. I haven't been tracking. I've let myself develop some bad habits.
By this past June I thought I had some pretty entrenched good habits. Then I went on vacation, and my eating habits slowly de... Read more
Is it wrong to be happy?
My honey recently got on the scale and saw his highest numbers yet. In some way, this makes me happy. Not happy that he is getting heavier, mind you. But for the past two years he'll say "I need to work out" and then does nothing. I think this i... Read more
2011 Biking to the Viking (belated race report)
I'm calling this a race report, event though the event is a fundraiser, not a race.
The Rona MS Biking to the Viking has been on my bucket list for a few years. I even signed up for it once, but then inadvertantly went and rented a cabin fo... Read more
Now, THAT's more like it (cycling)
My last few rides have not been stellar. I even said this week that cycling has kinda become more of a chore than a pleasure, as I HAVE to get my mileage in to prepare for my 2 day, 160K ride next weekend.

My Trip into the Abyss....
Usually, when it comes to unhealthy eating, I have the occasional little slip. One too many fancy coffees, a mini chocolate bar at the office, a single adult beverage.
This week, I did not slip on a single treat.
I did not slowly slide... Read more

Of Bikes & Bugs
So I went for a more leisurely ride this morning. I didn't feel like doing a hard/long ride after Friday's 50k push, but still wanted some time on the bike to prepare for my 60k event next weekend.
So instead of doing my usual route out of ... Read more
Am I crazy?? (August Schedule)
July has been a bit of a write off, starting with my 10 day vacation, and my regular gym still closed, and my month of hot yoga finished. AND it doesn't help that my son is going to bed later, so I'm either not getting my workouts in after he's ... Read more

Today I rode a road bike for the very first time...and I brought one home. This wasn't a surprise, as I went out with the hope of finding one today. This time of year there are quite a few sales on last year's models, so it made for good shoppin... Read more
On the Curb (or The Stress Diet)
I was doing really well... Was. Now I am not doing great. Not doing horrible either though. Hence I'm "on the curb"... I'm not quite on the path, but I'm definitely not far off either.
This past week has been rough:
