This whole getting-up-and-exercising-firs
t-thing is really not working for me, and I don't know why. I can't seem to get myself out of bed - but I think the problem is twofold:
1) No matter how hard I try, I can't get sleep. I try to... Read more
I bless the rains...
Remember that song "Africa" by Toto? When I was a little kid, I used to think that the lyric was "I left some brains down in Aaaaafricaaaaaa..." (instead of "I bless the rains down in Aaaaaaafricaaaaaaa..."). Yeah.
Anyway, it's finally RA... Read more
Hectic day today, so just a quickie:
1) I'm down a pound, yeah! I'd wanted to be 125 by the end of July, and that looks like it's not going to happen, but if I lose another pound by the end of next week, I'll only be two pounds shy of tha... Read more
Yardwork is Dangerous
I actually really like doing all the yardwork. I love being outside (even in this gross heat and humidity - normally I like it, but it's even too much for me) because I get to be with nature and all the good, growing things like the flowers and... Read more
Feeling much perkier today - if not slightly more upright and not as prostrate - but wow... yesterday was the pits. TOM has not been friendly to me this month.
The upshot of being home sick yesterday was that I got to (a) find a whole slew... Read more
Weighed in over the weekend on a lark - and for the first time since high school, the scale read in the 120s. SO excited!!! This means I only have a little more to lose until I get to goal! JUST in time for auditions coming up...
Feelin... Read more
No downward progress on the scale... which is really odd because I FEEL better this week. I'm thinking I might be hanging onto extra weight because TOM is just around the corner, and I always carry some extra pounds around before Auntie Flo mak... Read more
Day 2 - done!
Hooray! Got up and did P90 cardio this morning. This one always kicks my butt, but now it's DONE, and I don't have to worry about the rest of the day.
I weigh in today, too. More on that later.... Read more
Day 1 - done!
Well, we re-started P90 this morning! Woke our sleepy backsides up outta bed and just DID IT. Yeah!
The only thing I'm a little concerned about is that I am kiiiiind of more fit than he is... and I think I'm going to want to move on to th... Read more
Well good grief
We have absolutely GOT to get to bed at a decent time if these early morning workouts are going to happen.
My future husband (I hate the word "fiance," and "future husband" is so cumbersome - so now I'm going to call him my "fuzzband") and ... Read more
That's the way the vegan cookie crumbles.
Andrew bought us vegan cookies last night, and although they were filled with this weird... "cream..." they were actually not bad.
He also picked up Quorn meatballs last night, to which I added some sauce, garlic and fresh basil, and we h... Read more
So I work in a rather large office, in close proximity to one of our largest conference rooms. Lots of meetings happen in there and, often, are accompanied by delicious food, the smell of which wafts its way down the hall towards me.
I sme... Read more
Heard something great today!
I'm not much of a Twitter-er, but one thing that I do like about it is that it presents ideas in small, capsulized format. This means that you can find some GREAT quotes.
The one I found today that inspired me:
"Don't use other people... Read more
The best laid plans of mice and men
Sooo... feeling pretty good today.
Didn't get done everything I wanted to exercise-wise yesterday because, as I was mowing the lawn, I nearly ran over a baby robin! Oh no!!! I scooped him up, put him in a tupperware bowl with a paper towel... Read more
