I have not been sleeping right... and have been having really strange dreams for the past few nights. The result has me feeling under-rested. Which sucks, because I was all gung-ho to get to bed early (wasn't feeling great, anyway) and get up ... Read more
Oatmeal is a super food
Really am convinced of this.
For example, take Better Oats Oat Revolution Cinnamon & Spice's stats:
-Just 170 calories (only 25 of which come from fat)
-NO cholesterol (in fact, oatmeal and other whole grains help LOWER cholesterol) ... Read more
Even Babe Ruth didn't hit 'em ALL out of the park.
So we have this thing at work the first Friday of every month called "Breakfast is Served," whereupon we take turns signing up to bring breakfast goodies to share.
I sign up a lot, mostly because it's the only way I can eat something hot wi... Read more
Finally, some cooler weather! I opened up all the windows last night to get some fresh air and, although it was humid, the air was cool. It was nice to listen to the rain and smell the damp earth as we fell asleep last night.
I'm supposed... Read more
Yay, new stuff!
I learned a new choreography last night... yeah!!
It's amazing how learning something new from someone new can energize and motivate.
Feeling kind of overall sleepy and fighting a little headache, but that's nothing some hot coffee and... Read more
Yesterday was colossally rotten. Truly, the worst day in a while. Work was insane. At least I got to have a peaceful evening, cook a great, healthy dinner for Andrew and I, and relax and decompress.
But - today is a new day! Going to le... Read more
There was a huge fire in my row of townhomes this week. I live in the end unit, but about twelve houses down from me, a huge fire erupted at 1:30 a.m. on Friday night/Saturday morning. I awoke to smoke and flashing lights, and I freaked RIGHT ... Read more
Feel pretty great!
Had a great dance rehearsal yesterday - I always feel better after dancing. We're currently rehearsing for the Peach Festival down in Middletown, and we have approximately an hour of material to learn - wow! Plus - I have to come up with a sol... Read more
Buddy, can you spare a dime?
I'm not one to wish time away, but boy will I be glad when this week is over.
My employer - with whom I am very happy working - has a really DUMB semi-monthly pay system, where we get paid on the second and fourth Friday of each month.

Not feeling very pleasant today.
But at least the scale and I are still on good terms.... Read more
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
