Here's to the ones who persevere!

Sunday, June 21, 2015      0 comments

I volunteered at a marathon yesterday. The race takes over our city each year with all sorts of folks in phenomenal shape. This year over 18, 000 participants started the race. Generally the race is pretty much over as far as news coverage is ... Read more

NYC trip

Monday, April 06, 2015      0 comments

My fears were unfounded regarding my NYC trip. One enterprising soul programmed her cell phone to track our distance and we walked about 12 miles on two different days. The third day was a mere six. NYC restaurants nearly all post a... Read more

Hitting the road

Wednesday, April 01, 2015      2 comments

After 10 months of waiting, we are leaving today for my daughter's high school choir trip to NYC. I am very excited to see the many sights we are planning to speed through. I am not really looking forward to the 22 hour bus trip each way... Read more

Run or Dye 5K - What a blast

Monday, April 28, 2014      5 comments

Back in October my sister asked me if I wanted to tag along on a "Run or Dye" 5K. It sounded fun. A friend of my sister's had signed up so we created a team - "The Wogger... Read more

Still trying to figure this out

Wednesday, March 19, 2014      4 comments

Lately I have found myself to be tired more often than not, sometimes to the degree where I can't finish a single workout. I just now sat down after 15 minutes of a Leslie Sansone video -- those aren't exactly difficult. My sleep has been rea... Read more

Here's to a new month and a new week.

Sunday, March 02, 2014      2 comments

As I am watching the clock countdown to Sunday, I am having to admit that this will be the first week in a while that I haven't achieved my fitness minutes goal. A week of little sleep and a bout of some crud going around just got the better of... Read more

Sage advice

I think I will try this for at least three days per week. It's a bit unpractical for me as a full time thing but I do like the idea of eating clean.... Read more

Great NSV today

Friday, February 07, 2014      2 comments

I had to see a doctor today -- honestly it has been years. The big news came early on: Resting heart rate of 62!! For my age range, that is "excellent" and borders on "athletic." When the nurse said the number, she sounded stunned. I a... Read more

Sometimes those emotions just get in the way

Friday, January 31, 2014      3 comments

I have been trying for the better part of this morning to write a letter to my ex regarding our daughter. Generally I express myself very articulately in writing. Today, it's not happening. My own emotions and experiences keep clouding my wor... Read more

Kind of back on track

Saturday, January 25, 2014      1 comments

It has been a long journey to getting "back in the groove," but I am starting to feel it again. Oh happy day!! "Forgiving myself" for allowing myself to backslide doesn't work for me. I needed a swift kick in the pants and a stern talking... Read more

Working against (or with) a nagging injury

Thursday, December 05, 2013      1 comments

My sedentary job has managed to injure my hip, neck and back. I was as sore as I could ever remember being before I helped a friend move on Sunday, which reduced me to a mass of aches that left me sleepless and unable to heal. THEN we got a ma... Read more

Time to pay the piper, lol

Saturday, July 20, 2013      3 comments

Summer in Minnesota is a fleeting affair, best caught by the tail when one can. It generally for me means the abandon of some of my fitness and eating routines, in favor of gardening and other summer-only work around the house. This summer has... Read more
