A Little Whine....
I returned from the beach a week ago, sick. Unfortunately, despite doing everything right (drinking lots of water, resting, taking decongestants) I am still sick, and it being a holiday weekend, I will have to wait until Tuesday to go to the doc... Read more
Something Always Happens.
Most of July was pretty good for me - I was waking up sometimes by 6:20 to head out and walk or jog before my husband left for appointments or to the gym. Excercising is diffinitely more of a challenge with the kids home for summer, but I was do... Read more
A fresh start
Did I eat badly over the weekend? Well let's just say I didn't eat the healthiest food, but I didn't eat much of it - and only at 1 meal each day. No, what really has me furious is that I am on a new medication this past week and a half that has... Read more
I'm off the track!
I love routine, but sometimes with 2 kids, soccer, school volunteering, 95 degree heat and doctors appointments, it's just not possible. This always reminds me of Toots the Train, a toy my kids still sometimes play with. If he is turned on and ... Read more
Jump right in!
So after a week of feeling sluggish, sick, and as though I was eating everything in sight (which I actually wasn't) I am back on track today - entering my food, and despite the rain, doing 30 minutes of my kickboxing video. I won't weigh myself ... Read more
There she goes again.
I have been a bit blue lately. There are reasons, of course - Mothers day is fast approaching, and I do not have a mother. Something awful just happened to someone I love very much, and there is nothing I can do about it. None of the clients are... Read more
I have so much to be thankful for, but this is one of those days I am just frustrated about everything. I am losing and gaining the same 2 pounds over and over again. Yes, I should be happy, I still weigh less than last year, but it still makes ... Read more
Or at least, I hope it's spring fever, this persistent sleepiness that I have a suspicion is depression. This always happens right before Easter....it sneaks up on me, and I cannot figure out why I am not happy. Spring has finally arrived, vacat... Read more
Locker Room Reflections
I find the locker room at my gym a humbling experience. Sure, there are a few women who are so ridiculously fit and perfect they make us all feel like balls of pure exhausted cellulite, but there are plenty of people who are just normal. They ar... Read more
Trapped, like a rat in barrel of water. Due to snowpocalypto, the kids were off school friday. They were also off wednesday for more snow, and monday for a teacher workday, so they were in school only 2 days last week, and I have no idea when th... Read more
Water, Water, Everywhere
When does drinking 8 glasses a day get easy? I know I've consumed that much in the past - mainly on hot summer days when I'm outside with the kids or working in the garden, but drinking 8 glasses a day when it's winter and I'm also drinking herb... Read more
Oww oww oww!
Doing great on the bootcamp for 2 weeks. Okay, my total lack of sleep sunday night derailed my cardio plans for yesterday, but last night i noticed I seem to have picked up a bad and very painful shoulder injusry, so I have a sneaking suspicion ... Read more
I have been so good. I have done 2 weeks of the new bootcamp, upped my cardio considerably, and yet, only half a pound down on the scale today. I guess I was hoping for more - I have been drinking so much water lately, I thought I would have flu... Read more
Pannettone, Stollen, Chocolate, nuts, Babka, Christmas Cookies, gingerbread, candy cane, hot cocoa, pumpkin ice cream, candied ginger, roast beef, cheese balls, swedish meatballs, champagne, and fitting into a nice dress for my 14th anniversary ... Read more
Best Laid Plans....
I know a lot of people out there are unable to excercise regularly due to some type of chronic pain, so why should I whine about a little abcess under a tooth? But the pain seems to double everyday, the endodontist can't squeeze me in to re-root... Read more
