Bought flowers for myself - 'cause I'm awesome.

Sorry no picture, because I did this a while ago. I'm awesome. Have you told yourself that you are awesome today? Sometimes its hard. Critique seems to be built into our self conscious. But you are. So tell yourself that once in a whil... Read more

Things I do not recommend: Trying a new ST group class (Cardio, core & sculpt) AND Running a 5k on the treadmill in 28min which is fast for me AND Sitting in a coolish room watching the snowfall. The muscles in my legs have set up li... Read more

Saturday, November 03, 2012      6 comments

FWIW - I think Bloomberg canceling the NYC Marathon was the wrong decision, but what's done is done. BUT - if you are trained and ready and in the area, drive about 1+ hour north to Goshen NY and try out the Hambletonian Marathon course. T... Read more

My official 10K time was 1:04:47, which means my pace was 10:27. Which is about normal. So my next goal is a speed one. 2 years ago I started running a Turkey Trot and this year will be the 3rd time I do it. My goal is a sub 30 min time. ... Read more

I've been avoiding the scale. CHICKEN. Not working out like I should, food fest (good choices, but excess calories are still excess). My belly is pooching out again. I use my Wii Balance board as my scale. And I got this little slice of goo... Read more

I have been holding off on posting you on this. I feel guilty and ashamed. But there are so many wonderful SparkFriends that I know are curious about how this work thing is going for me. The bad news is: poorly. Not the work part. T... Read more
So Happy I Ignored You
Friday, September 28, 2012      15 comments

So I checked in before heading out to eat last night. The will of the group was diner, with the consensus being "Go for the Healthy Option, Doofus!" Before heading out, I stopped by a colleague's room. He had never heard anything good abo... Read more
