It's been a rough year, as my friends know all too frakking well. Many of them have had rough years of their own. My daughter threatened suicide... my son is back in counseling... it's been 4 months since I was sworn into the Army and I st... Read more

My exercise so fell off the wagon this week, it's not even funny. Had a great start last Sunday, but I have a friend going through a crisis and she needed me several times this week... so I went to check on her 3 nights and got no exercise in t... Read more
What a week... H1N1, WIC & Camarilla, oh my!

This has been a nearly impossible week to get anything done, including exercise... had friends over two nights, which makes it hard for an evening exerciser to fit it in (waving hands madly). I also was borderline under the weather all week (ju... Read more

Tonight is the last day of my short (5 day, which was part weekend) vacation... really it was a 5 day weekend. But it was very much needed. I have a pile of work to return to but that is okay... I feel somewhat refreshed and better equipped me... Read more

The days of summer are changing over to fall... I can so feel it in the air. I love fall, it's my favorite season and it seems that my life seems to get a new kick each fall, a new energy, the time to go in a new direction... I really fe... Read more

The journey really doesn't end with maintenance... it would be so nice if it did. I haven't exercised all the minutes I would like... and I have eaten way more than I should be. So again, back on the horse. I can do it.... Read more

Sometimes I feel like I cash in my karma coupons all at one time. This has been one of those years... really... Since last Wednesday, when we brought Miss M home, things have been lighter, brighter and more hopeful. She was diagnosed with... Read more

I've been under a lot of stress lately, I think that has been clear. Thursday night/Friday morning, everything got ratcheted to overload. My daughter was threatening to commit suicide and we had to have her committed. It's a long stor... Read more

I've gotten myself to a solid 10 minute mile. My shortest so far was 9 minutes. I also can do 15 push ups. I haven't counted sit ups for awhile... but I will this weeks. I walked about 12 miles yesterday just walking and talking with fri... Read more

...still no orders from the Army and the 45 days is Monday. I'm sure my recruiter is as antsy as I am. So we continue to wait. The drama as settled out some... it's mostly a hum in the background of my existence. I can at least live with... Read more

It's a crazy thing. This year has been like someone sitting in Imelda Marcos' closet merrily pelting me with shoes (as in... waiting for another shoe to drop). I thought the dram... Read more

Friday was Mr A's birthday... it was very nice. He wanted grilled salmon and steak, so we just bought some good stuff from the meat case and had a feast. He wanted software for his birthday, so he downloaded that and was happy. Saturday, w... Read more

I actually meant to blog the milestone on Sunday... but was busy getting lessons sent in ridiculous packaging... good ones, but my brain was kinda 'splodey. I ran a 10 minute mile on Sunday, so that is going well. I also did 30 day shred l... Read more
Getting back up on my really good horse... and awaiting orders.

Well, I am working my way back to the vigorous exercise routine I had a few months ago, I slacked off for a few months, and while it's easier to restart from where I am now, it's still hard to reestablish those good habits. However I have no ch... Read more
