Need a routine
I think that the fact that the bedroom was lovely and cool and restful this morning contributed to my (our) inability to get up and exercise. Morning exercise may not be an option for us. :(
Afternoon exercise is a little trickier, but no... Read more
Made it through the hurricane relatively unscathed. Other than a downed tree and some aches from sleeping on a beach chair in the basement (to babysit the sump pump when the power went out), we are uninjured and intact. Happy and grateful for ... Read more
Low motivation day
Honestly, the best I'm hoping for today is to not veer too far off of my calorie count.
I think I'll do okay.
Just not motivated to do much beyond that.
I'll have to mow the lawn and do yardwork tonight, though, in advance of the ... Read more
Went pretty well!
I didn't sing as well as I might've liked to - still dealing with this sinus thing - but I nailed the dance audition. I'm hoping to get a callback!
This weather makes me want to get outside and move! I woke up this morning ... Read more
But I had a good weekend.
The performances on Saturday went well enough (at least my solo did!), and I managed to get some good rest, which my body desperately needed.
Didn't sleep well last night, though, which is why I'm so draggy to... Read more
I am a normally very healthy person. Apart from my KTS issues (which really aren't that bad, and very rarely give me any serious grief), I have very little to complain about.
And that makes the "coming down with something" sensation feel m... Read more
After dinner last night (I made yummy homemade pesto with whole grain pasta and sundried tomatoes - YUM!), Andrew and I took Hannah up to the Newark Reservoir for a nice evening walk.
I cannot believe I've never done this before - and I use... Read more
To do work.
Not work out, mind you...
If I can manage this, I should be able to manage getting up early to exercise.... Read more
Easy come, easy go -
Yeah, my joy at payday last Friday has been rapidly quelled by bill-paying.
I don't know why I get so jubilant on payday; all of my money's already spoken for and owed to other people.
Andrew and I went to Rehobo... Read more
No, not the delicious candy bar.
PAYDAY, as in MONEY IN THE BANK. Thank G_d.
So excited - Andrew and I are going to the beach with the family tomorrow! I'm feeling poochy and blah (PMS, I hate you), but I am determined t... Read more
GORGEOUS day today. All the humidity has blown out, and this morning was lovely... maybe even a bit chilly.
For as much as I love summer, I have to confess that after the disgustingly hot summer we've had here in the northeast, I'm sort ... Read more
Why do people lie?
Seriously, what is so horrible about the truth? What, you're going to say or do something someone's not going to like or agree with, so rather than do that, you're going to lie about it and risk whatever happens when the... Read more
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
