So I just typed a really good blog entry that accidentally had html in it (seriously, we can't use html to italicize something??), and I got an error message saying, "Sorry, no html allowed! Click here to go back."
I clicked the link - and... Read more

I already eat a mostly whole-food diet consisting mainly of legum... Read more
Believe it or not, wonked back and all, I managed a workout last night.
I did the Sweat 1-2 of the P90 series yesterday, modifying a lot of the exercises and focusing a lot on the ones I knew would help the back, especially the power yoga s... Read more
Managed to wonk up my back but good... maybe from all the yardwork over the weekend. Or maybe it's from when Hannah yanked me off my feet. Or maybe I slept funny. Or maybe...
Doesn't matter, really. It just HURTS. This is going to thro... Read more
If I set a goal to lose one pound a week, I will hit my all-time goal by July 1.
This is awesome on several fronts. First - and most importantly - it's my end goal. My END GOAL. It was the number I chose for myself when I em... Read more
My blogging here lately has really been random and "drive-by" style. That's bad, for a few reasons... but mostly because writing about what I'm doing has always had the effect of crystallizing the thoughts (some of them really good) that someti... Read more

So... my broken tooth... the one that got "fixed..."
It suddenly got angry with me. Very, VERY angry. At 3:00 a.m. on Friday morning.
Went to work, called the dentist, and explained to them that the pain I was in was making me want t... Read more

Well, so much for lovely spring weather. Today is cool and damp and raw, and would you believe we have SNOW in the forecast?? Ugh. It isn't going to accumulate or anything, but even just the thought of more of the white crap coming down makes... Read more
Naughty me. I did not post a blog entry yesterday.
Maybe that's because I was working my crazy rear end off.
Not that any of that has changed for today, mind you; today is still nuts, but the difference today is that I'm pretty much r... Read more
I am having a horrific day. Staying on track with my diet - but seriously a really BAD day.
And I discovered I have a bad habit when I'm stressed: I grind my teeth!
I already know that I grind my teeth when I'm sleeping, but today I ... Read more
Okay - I just want to get this off of my chest, and then I promise I'll talk about happier things.
