Wednesday, November 04, 2015      0 comments

Loving the crisp mornings, not so much the drive home in the dark. Starting a walking challenge because my knee is still recovering and I'm not allowed back on the elliptical yet. It also gets me out of doors during lunch so I actually do get... Read more

And its a good news and bad news kind of day. I twisted my knee during our beach vacation. Evidently if you're old enough to order off the senior menu at Bob Evan's you shouldn't be chasing ghost crabs on the beach. I did my usual rest, ic... Read more

I always feel so much more energized when spring arrives. (Although I'm still grumpy because of the time change). The snow if finally melted and I don't have the excuse of its too cold to go outside. It might be muddy but mud washes off. ... Read more

Just got back from Christmas with the in laws. My mother in law makes a killer light fruitcake. Light as in the opposite of dark. She makes this cake in late October, it then gets wrapped in cheese cloth and doused with brandy every week. I... Read more

Okay I love Thanksgiving. Its the only holiday where there's 1/2 a dozen veggies on the table at once because you wouldn't want the turkey to get lonely. We had stuffed squash, sweet potatoes, green beans kale salad, green salad, whiskey car... Read more

Okay its getting toward the end of fall but we had some perfect fall weather this weekend. A little overcast so the leaves look that much brighter and getting colder. I like the cold. I am still working on consistency and some way of los... Read more

I really love fall but right now it isn't loving me back. Hubby is recovering from an illness that put him on short term disability. (For some reason that makes both of us feel really old) He's back at work but his normal work day just leave... Read more

Sunday, August 03, 2014      3 comments

Things that I've learned from the past week. 30 minutes of cardio is really not that long. Pilates looks easy and is not. Decided to try the crunchless ab workout. I made it half way through it. I'll try it again and again until I actua... Read more
