Monday, April 09, 2012      0 comments

Easter was pretty quiet, and thus a challenging day for me. Had a GREAT day on Saturday - fitness wise and also socially. Enjoyed dinner out with a girlfriend and then went to hear a friend's band play. Sunday morning started with an email fr... Read more

Saturday, April 07, 2012      1 comments

Okay... so I'm not in the mood to continue cleaning today. So I'm not! I got up this morning and went to a Fitness Boot Camp meetup group I found on the web last night. Thought it would be fun to try something different, and it was! One hour... Read more

Good Friday!

Had the day off, which was lovely. Spent several hours cleaning and sorting. Still ate healthy even though I was home (always a challenge). I just signed up to do a new "boot camp" workout in the morning - can't wait!... Read more

Stumble, stumble... but didn't fall!

Thursday, April 05, 2012      1 comments

Last night was odd. All day long I was pumped and motivated and had plans to go to the gym. On the way home, it all changed - and I only live MINUTES from home. Now, it wasn't all bad - just weird. As soon as I got home, I was going to take ... Read more

Whether I like to admit it or not, I'm a half century old...AND my body has been carrying around way more weight than it was designed to from about age 6 on. So it stands to reason that I would have some issues with knee and joint pain. I have... Read more

Inspiring Others Feels Good!

Back Again...

Monday, April 02, 2012      2 comments

Actually, I've been "back on the wagon" for almost a month now. But I was afraid to talk about it since I've been on and off before. But as I said on another person's blog today, the only failure is when you stop trying; therefore, the fact th... Read more

Rushing Headlong into.... Failure?

Tuesday, August 16, 2011      3 comments

Nah. Not going there. I haven't posted because life has been crazy hectic, and thus I've fallen into bad habits. Good news is that I'm not really binging... but the hectic nature of my schedule has made me lazy. I haven't been paying attenti... Read more

Evaluation Time

Monday, July 18, 2011      2 comments

Well, I have a lot to talk about but I'll try to just hit the important points. I had an "out-of-town" challenge, so let's evaluate! I do reviews as part of my job. The folks I review don't particularly like it - they see it as an "audi... Read more
