Friday, February 12, 2016      4 comments

I love Paris. If you haven't visited this city, go. I mean really go. Stay a while and wander the streets and see the sights. The only place I didn't enjoy was modern shopping at Champs de Elysee. No need to see GAP stores in Paris, no? ... Read more

My husband is a saint. Truly. He does so many thoughtful and inventive things. But he's not so quick on those small repairs around the house. I'm sure that the lure of Words With Friends or any random webpage do require that much of his free... Read more

I am very ready to call the half point. I suppose that will be tommorrow. For last week's report, I had to toss one cardio session. Went to Atlanta for Dragon Con, a sci-fi convention. First time I've ever done that. It was a blast! Se... Read more

Week 5 Completed

It was a good and bad week. Good - I worked really, really hard. Bad - scheduling caused chaos and I ended up with one day without workouts and another with two. Note to self: If I miss a workout, it's just missed. No more trying to m... Read more

It's week 3, P90X Classic. I must say that yesterday's chest, back & abs was hard. Felt like I could do less, not more. Except for the abs. Those I did better :) Overall, muscle fatigue (not really soreness), is becoming ever-present.... Read more

Overdid it yesterday. YogaX, ran 3 miles, Legs & Back, walked a total of 90 minutes. Total calories 1426. You'd think the scale would be down this morning, huh? Course not. I didn't really mean to eat only 1426. All that exercise... Read more
