Shall we try this again?
So... yesterday was a real bust. Pretty much nothing went right yesterday.
But you know, I've found that since I've started to take better care of myself, I roll with things better. When I am caught in the rapids of ridiculousness, I am n... Read more
O, motivation, where art thou???
I guess I'm doing okay... I got up, did my workout this morning and rocked it pretty well, pushing myself hard (one-handed pushups... oy vey!).
But as far as everything else I have to do today? NOPE. All I want to do is crawl back under t... Read more
I'm a bad Fitbit mom. I starved it to death!! LOL... seriously, they last so long on one charge that I guess I just let time get away from me and haven't charged it. So, I'll put her back on her charger tonight when I get home, I guess.

Quick blog to check in -
I am so incredibly busy right now, but never too busy for workouts - and today completes week 5 of P90X. Well, technically, TOMORROW does, but tomorrow is a rest day. Of course, I always squeeze in at least a ligh... Read more
P90X - 30-day Progress Pics!!
Okay - here goes...
Riddle me this...
So I started my day like always - woke up, P90X (today was back/biceps/abs), shower, feed the zoo, commute, settle in, log in, log breakfast/exercise.
First of all - new start page format! Not sure if I like it, but it's got all your goal ... Read more
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
