Really???? I haven't blogged since August 2???
Boy, I've been lazy about blogging this month! I don't even know what I've been up to, it just feels like a blur! I've been doing well. Some random thoughts:
*I finally got back into some cooking last week. I even managed to pull myself... Read more
I was proud of myself last night. I didn't get home from work until 8:30 last night (the first of the month is a real bugger at work), and was hoping to exercise. Of course, as soon as I walked in the door, I just wanted to fall on the couch a... Read more
Bye bye, July!
July is my least favorite month of the year. I am just not into summer, and July is just hot. Makes me not want to do anything! So glad summer is half over, and autumn is on the horizon (I realize I'm probably in the minority here, most peopl... Read more
This week has been a real flop exercise-wise. Not completely my fault, I guess. I am having issues with allergies/sinus problems, and that gives me headaches and dizziness that make it near impossible to keep up with my exercise plans. I hoped... Read more
Making lemonade out of lemons
So yesterday did not start out well. I had planned to go to yoga first thing in the morning. It's usually so nice waking up on Saturday morning and knowing I have the whole weekend ahead of me! But yesterday I just felt like a steaming pile ... Read more
So first, my yoga gripe. I've seriously never had this issue before during a practice. I was sitting there last night and noticed that there was an empty mat in front of me. About 5 minutes into the practice, the owner came back in and went t... Read more
Today's Wednesday, right? LOL I've been having trouble keeping track because time just flies by! July is almost half over, eek! I'm in my second day of tracking my food (it's been about 2 months since I stopped). Even though I don't think I... Read more
It has really been a couple of busy weekends! We finally got the basement cleaned out enough to put down mats and put together the new weight bench and recumbent bike - Yayyyyy, finally a home gym! My new weight set should be delivered any day... Read more
I feel like I slept through June...
Seriously, what happened to the month of June??? I was sort of not quite present for it, I'm afraid! I don't even think I got around to setting goals, so I guess there's not much to evaluate. I did manage to get my fitness minutes up (not qui... Read more
Vegan comfort food? Yes, please!!!!
I've been a vegetarian off and on for about 15 years. I occasionally fall off the wagon, but always come back to it. I just don't like meat, and as an animal lover, I just can't eat it if I stop and think about where it came from. I really li... Read more
I did it!!!! Bring on the heat!
So, I survived my first Bikram yoga class last night! It turned out be better than I expected. It's actually a very nice studio, and the teacher was excellent. I will say -- It was brutal! The actual yoga was much tougher than the other clas... Read more
Bikram Yoga - Eeeeekkkk!
So, tonight I am going to my first Bikram yoga class. For non-yogi's, Bikram yoga is a series of 26 poses done in a room heated to 103 degrees. While I love heat, the idea of 90 minutes doing a physical activity in it makes me nervous. But ev... Read more
Ummm... where did May go? I feel like I just barely got started and now June is staring me in the face! My goals for May were:
1. Earn 900 fitness minutes (average 30/day) - Actual = 880 - Missed it by a hair! Yes, I should probably have... Read more
Happy Hump Day!
This week is blowing by. Looking forward to a 3 day weekend! So far, I've been very healthy, I hope to keep it up for the rest of the week. At least then, if a few treats sneak on my plate over the holiday, I can indulge a little without guil... Read more
So. Glad. It's. Friday. Wow, this has been a long week. Feels likes it's been ages since I've been home long enough to do anything besides sleep. So looking forward to a weekend! Got a great compliment from a co-worker this morning about the... Read more
