Yes - giving my body what it wants. I will do a light workout later, probably, but for now - REST. I'm achy and chilly and my throat is scratchy... Hoping a little rest will rectify this and get me back to firing on all four for tomorrow. I lit... Read more
Aw, thanks, you guys. :)

No bloggy for the past few days - too busy! But not too busy to work out. :) Not feeling too good right now; stomach is bothering me. I think I'm just run-down. Spent the past 2 hours cuddling and sleeping with Hannah, et al. on the couch... Read more

Too bad there's no vaccine for this... boy oh BOY is it a beautiful day today! The sun is shining and feels warm on my face for the first time since fall, and I'm starting to hear more and more spring birds as they make their return. I'm h... Read more

Thursday, February 16, 2012      4 comments

Yup - I have exercised every day consecutively for the past 50 days! Which makes me really want to throw the scale out the window... for all of my efforts, I've lost a little weight, but that pesky number just WILL NOT go away. BUT BUT... Read more

It's soooo good, but the next day, it always leaves me feeling blecchy. I'm guessing it's the salt and the preservatives. Must remember that next time I get a jones for it. Ok - five more minutes of cuddling with Andrew - then workout tim... Read more
Big struggle

This getting to bed late crap has gotta stop. I woke up this morning and, for the first time, I considered skipping working out. As I lay there and thought about it, though, I realized that I'd feel horrible and guilty for the rest of the ... Read more

Two days and NO blog posts?? Yeah, it was THAT kind of weekend. Very busy, and it's going to be that way from now until June 23. So much going on, between Rocky and planning the wedding and performances (theatre and bellydance)... and i... Read more
You are what you eat

And I plan to get out and ENJOY it! :) I don't care if I have to go alone and my co-workers (co-irkers!!!) won't join me. I could do with a day without them, anyway. I've become very picky nowadays about what I'll eat at lunch, and for s... Read more
Pet Peeve

So, for breakfast, I packed a Fage Total 2% Fat Greek Yogurt with Honey (my favorite!). It's one of my favorite post-workout things to eat because it is a great way to get the carbs (honey) and protein (yogurt) that your body needs to rebuild t... Read more

I feel like I'm getting really burned out at work... feeling like I may need to take a day soon just so I can catch my breath. My friend, Mary, thinks everyone's burning out because we haven't had any respectable snowstorms and, thus, no snow d... Read more

It’s funny… I spent a long time mentally building myself up so that I could get up and do my workout this morning. Today is the day where I'm supposed the next phase of the Power 90 workout series, and I was intimidated by it. Even though I wa... Read more
Power 90 - phase 3!!
Wednesday, February 08, 2012      2 comments

So I had to really mentally work myself up to getting up and starting the new phase... ...but you know what? It wasn't so bad. You know why? The first disc, if you do it right and slowly build up your endurance and learn good form, WILL... Read more

Fat acceptance?
Tuesday, February 07, 2012      2 comments

Okay, I admit, I don't understand this. I saw a brief blurb on something in connection with Dr. Oz - a commercial for an "intervention" of some sort involving him and several women who were very comfortable with their bodies yet clinically morb... Read more
