An ugly part of myself.
So for Admin Professionals Day (which my workplace celebrates for a week), they had all the fixin's for burritos/tacos trucked in for us to have for lunch. Nice! I opted for rice (no taco shell or burrito shell), black beans, lettuce, pico de ... Read more
Caffeine Cold Turkey - Day 2
Where does that expression come from, anyway? "Cold turkey." Gross.
Anyway, today is my second day without caffeine. I am not as sluggish as yesterday, I don't think - I don't know. It's hard to tell, because I am a little fatigued. I ... Read more
P90X - Phase II
Began Phase II today, and introduced a new workout into the mix: Chest/Back/Triceps. No pullups today - which I was initially glad for - but today was THE day for pushups, all different kinds, every which way possible. Also, many triceps exten... Read more
Four weeks - done!
I'm already done with four weeks of P90X - and it has FLOWN by! I'm not getting bored with the workouts, which I think really helps.
Today is a "rest" day - so I did the Fatburner Express this morning, which is only a 40 minute workout but... Read more
Doctor Visit LOLs
So I had my physical...
They're going to send me to a vascular specialist for the PWS birthmark, which I expected... and they also want a CAT scan to rule out anything serious with the headaches (I'm pretty sure it's nothing).
My blood... Read more
Yup - that's how old I am today!
Honestly, I don't make a big deal out of birthdays... but this birthday, I'm feeling especially great. Nothing says "happy birthday" like being able to slide into a pair of size 4 jeans for the first time i... Read more
Spent ALL DAY in the sunshine and fresh air, walking around downtown Newark and reveling in everything Main Street has to offer, hanging out with good friends.
That is good exercise for the soul. :)
Also did my ballet workout today, p... Read more
My P90X peeps will appreciate this. I had no idea there was a Tony Horton meme... but I'm loving it...
Takin' care of business.
Week 4, Day 3 - Kenpo! Had some extra "pop" today, so I pushed myself a little harder today. Feels good!
So it's Friday, and time for the weekend - AT LAST!! This week was not the best. About the only things that went well were my worko... Read more
I just learned that a co-worker had a stroke on Monday. She's still in the hospital, and is apparently not doing too well. She has some paralysis, and she cannot speak.
Remember this blog entry of mine, from the beginning of March?

MUCH better today
The abject misery of yesterday seems to have subsided... first day is the worst day, usually, and although I'm still feeling a little sluggish and wiped out, I'm at least not in pain anymore.
Woke up this morning and did Core Synergistics -... Read more
OK... so... remember when...
...a few weeks back, I said I had to go off the hormonal birth control because of my birthmark and its connection to increased stroke risk?
Well... I got my period today, which is kinda great news because that means my regularity isn't scre... Read more
P90X - Recovery Week 1
I'm into my fourth week of P90X - recovery week! Don't get me wrong, it's still hard work... but this is a week where I get to take a break from all that high-intensity strength training. The workouts I'll be alternating this week are Yoga, Co... Read more
Week 3 of P90X is DONE! Today's my "rest " day, and so I did the Fat Burner Express (only 30 minutes - but brought the intensity, so it was WORK) - and I will do the Stretch X tonight, when I'm good and warm. Might do ballet workout before tha... Read more
Week 3; Day 6
Did my Kenpo today, and I must say... I rocked it.
I do have to be a little bit more "awake" when I do those workouts, though, and this morning was kind of rough as sleep was uncomfortable. Allergies are at an all-time high, and although i... Read more
