Sunday, July 22, 2012      2 comments

When will this heat wave end? I guess it's good that I'm working so much. I can't have much fun outside when it's so hot and humid. I did 20 minutes on the elliptical today: 5 min warming up and gradually getting faster, 13 minutes goi... Read more

I didn't sleep great last night, but I slept. I feel a lot better today. I really have to watch my evening caffeine intake at work. Work Sunday was so slow, I felt I needed a boost to stay awake. That probably is what killed my sleep that ni... Read more
