Hi and Goodbye
It’s been awhile, not because I’ve fallen off the wagon, but because I’ve been enjoying life. My weight has stayed constant since I reached my goal in 2008. I still eat out and cook elaborate meals, but I seem to have found a balance. My runn... Read more
I have to comment on the fabulous meal we had at Capitol Garage on Monday. We had a coupon, which offered a pitcher of beer or a bottle of wine and two entrees for $29.95. The food was wonderful and well-proportioned. I'm sure we could have d... Read more
Bombay Bar and Grill and Love Child at B Street
Although the service was excellent, the menu offerings varied and the prices reasonable, the food itself was just ok. Having read a review we knew to order our dish spicy, since they tend to run on the mild side and we like spicy and hot. The ... Read more
Since I whined in my status update today, I thought I would turn that seemingly "bad" stuff into good in my blog.
I didn't get much sleep last night because of noisy people in my house. It was the first night I'd spent at home since Decemb... Read more
It's been awhile since I've blogged. It seems as if the more time I take on vacation, the less time I have to do the usual things.
I didn't bake as much as I'd planned to over the holidays. This is a good thing as I would probably have ... Read more
Love and My 5K Update
On Wednesday morning, I received an email reminding me that the opera Elixir of Love was opening on Friday. I impulsively decided to buy myself a ticket (cheapest seat.) I knew that Christopher was taking his son to the Stanford game on Saturd... Read more
I finally went the distance yesterday. I really, really did not want to run during lunch. No specific reason... just feeling funky. My sweetie encouraged me and as each mile passed I struggled through it. My time slipped (usually I do 12 min... Read more
My sweetie ran with me during lunch on Monday, Wednesday and today. We finally did a complete 2 1/2 times around the park which is about 2 3/4 miles. At this rate, I'll be ready for the 5K on the 21st.
It isn't really getting easier... a... Read more
I was a bit disappointed that I didn't run 2 1/2 miles yesterday. I got a stitch in my side and only finished 2 miles. It was an effort to do that.
Today I met a friend for a morning walk. We walked for an hour and a good pace. We met a... Read more
On the Menu for Tonight
Tonight is an apricot-themed menu:
Cashew Salmon with Apricot Couscous
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
3 green onions, sliced, greens and whites separated
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon ... Read more
Christopher and I spent most of Saturday on the beach in San Gregorio and in the town of Half Moon Bay. I could easily retire there - it's beautiful, quaint and friendly.
From there we went to the Stanford game (yes - they won!) and spen... Read more
Back in the Groove
I knew we were running during lunch, but I had some things to mail and a book to pick up at the library (as well as one to drop off,) so I decided to walk over there (the Post Office is right across the street from the library,) this morning. I... Read more
What Happened to My Mojo?
Although it stormed like crazy yesterday and I couldn't get out to exercise, I didn't mind. Christopher and I had a nice dinner out and went to see Maintenance Man at the B Street Theater afterwards. It was an early night and I slept like a ba... Read more
Hold Me Tight
I'm usually not much for audio books, but Hold Me Tight by Sue Johnson was only available from the library on CD. I started listening at work, but kept getting distracted (I'm much better with reading words off of a page... it's that visual thi... Read more
Talking with Mom
I keep wanting to talk to mom about her house. When my dad passed away almost 13 years ago, my sister swooped in and got mom to add her name to the house deed as well as all of mom's accounts. I know that mom's plan is for my sister and I to d... Read more
