feeling ever so slightly more human
Not completely human, mind you. Just moving toward that general direction. At least my fever is gone.... Read more
yup, it got me
The nasty bug that Benjamin had last week. I am as weak as a kitten, moderate temp, feel like I've been hit by 2x4s all over my body.... Read more
Nuts and potatoes
Those are my kid friendly swear words, as in "Oh Nuts and Potatoes I forgot to pay the rent!!!" (that's never actually happened, it's just an example) :)
So today I am swearing in a kid friendly way because it appears that, once again, I am... Read more
to weigh or not to weigh
I weigh myself every single morning and I'm kinda tired of it. I've been thinking about going to a weekly or monthly weigh in. It doesn't mean that much and it doesn't positively motivate me very much and when it's up, it makes me cranky.

I appreciate all the kind words and prayers you have all sent my way. Today was a lot better grief-wise. I even had a nice long tear-free conversation about Seymour with my good friend Sheila. Damn, I loved that cat. ... Read more
Trying to try
Today I feel slightly better about my cats' death on Friday. I'm a little less in shock and can now think about Seymour without bawling my eyes out (immediately). I realized this morning that I haven't exercised since Wednesday and I need to do ... Read more
awful *#$@#!)(@$!@* day
My beautiful, precious cat died today. He was only 7. We think he was hit by a car and we decided to have him put down because he was so badly hurt. I am so upset I can barely see straight. ... Read more
Cruising right along
Not too much to report today. I walked for 70 minutes with Leslie Sansone, ate pretty darn well, had a nice day with the kids, a nice dinner with dh and went out for coffee with my mom friends. I also took a tour of an academic library catalog d... Read more
Diggin' this whole taekwondo thing
Tonight I had my second taekwondo class and am in love with it! My instructor is infinitely patient and kind and has a nice sense of humor. I love the movements, the focus, the intensity and the precision of taekwondo. Master Taylor laughed at u... Read more
A relaxing weekend
I had a really nice time with my friends this weekend. It was nice to decompress with friends who understand what it's like to raise small children. :) We hung out, went for a swim at the hotel, went out to eat, watched a movie, hit the sack, go... Read more
A whole day off!
I'm going to hang out with some girlfriends for the day and then spend the night in a nice hotel with my gal pads all without my adorable family. I am so psyched to get to do what I want to do for a whole day. I'm going to try to squeeze some ex... Read more
Good workout day, food, not so much
Today I got a whole 5 mile walk in with Leslie and Lila didn't come bug me at all! It was so nice to get a good high heart rate going without any interruptions. Lila is 2.5 and very needy these days so my workouts at home often get broken up in ... Read more
This wonder woman is tired. :)
I did a short 2 mile Leslie Sansone workout tonight because I am in rough shape due to my delightful TOM. I'm maxed out on ibuprofen and feel woozy and slightly nauseous from the drugs and from the cramps that I was attempting to deaden. Lovely,... Read more
Today is my 6 month SP anniversary
A half a year.
My life is better than I hoped for.
My health is great.
I am so much stronger, leaner, faster, peppier, willing to do something new.
I am lighter in every sense of the word.
I don't plod around my house a... Read more
I heart Jari
I finally got up the nerve to do a Jari Love strength training dvd tonight. Her workouts are tough and looooong compared to the little 10 minute SP bootcamp strength training I've been doing for the last 30 days. She keeps a nice pace so you're ... Read more
