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
Week 3; Day 3
Had my daily date with Tony Horton - or, as I call him, my Other Husband. Because, yeah, not gonna lie. I'd hit that. :)
Today is shoulders & arms/abs... and frankly, I'm glad for an easy day after plyometrics. And I mean "easy" in a re... Read more
Um... no. Not really. It isn't fun - it's friggin HARD WORK.
But Tony Horton makes it bearable. I made the comment to Andrew this morning that it's nice to see that Tony gets winded by these workouts, too - and you can see very plainly t... Read more
Mysteriously, three pounds gained overnight. Welcome to the world of being a woman.
It's not like I pigged out or anything yesterday, either. In fact, overeating is something I almost never do these days.
Eh... I just need to be pati... Read more
Ew. Seriously? So gross.
So maybe you've seen the Geico car insurance commercials where there's this guy who's trying to save money. One of the ways he tries to save money on losing weight is by hiring three teenage girls to follow him around and police his food choice... Read more
I got up... did my workout as usual (woo!)... drank my protein shake... got ready and went to work. Didn't pack my yogurt for a morning snack because I knew I had one at the office, in the fridge.
And it's not there this morning. I only J... Read more
