Hi!!! looks like some are running and some are not. Judi, I hope your back gets fixed up soon. Beth, enjoy the dinner(I'm so behind you've probably had it days ago). Kimi-that run sounds heavenly.
Doris-great attitude on kicking the hineys of those hills!!
Nera-hope hubby gets a fire under him....that would drive me bonkers.
My hubby is back to high stress. The union sent him letters today: #1 they are demanding that the company lets the workers come back with all benefits and pay from before bargaining. ?? #2: about 1/2 the drivers want voluntary layoff(so they can have insurance and unemployment)and #3: the strikers are done striking and picketing and ready to work on Monday. WTH???!!!!! After 25 weeks??? Yeah, the union is saying, "We're not paying any more strike pay so we'll try and bully this little 40 employees company into giving in." I.DON'T. THINK.SO. Thankfully, FIL is out of town for awhile so he can avoid this stress.
I had a great walk today-faster than I've ever walked, i think!! these next 2 days are crazy bizzy with hockey!!!! OMYSTARS!!!! Serioulsy, for the next 2 weekends I won't know which way is up...but we signed up for it, didn't we???

The week started out well for exercise but has been going downhill. There is no motivation lately to do anything but lay on the couch and watch bad reality tv. I hope other people are having some great runs this weekend.

Went for a jog today. First time running in the cold (I had a gym membership last winter and the winter before). It'll take some getting used to. But I'm glad I went out there and did it. Hoping to take a brisk walk for about twice the distance tomorrow.

The route I took today was either up or down, no flat at all! The up was steep in parts but I just chugged along, slow and steady.
Love the season but I do hate the "hype" that comes with it.

Doris, enjoy your new route!

Beth, the dinner party sounds fun - always great to meet new people.

Carrie, that reminds me to start a new thread for Next month. How about "December to Remember".

Mamma, I love when the tree goes up! Enjoy your sprints tonight (Muwahahaha).

Too much shovelling is what I did to my back. I love that activity, but lately I just keep popping ribs when I do it.

Happy Friday!

I know I say this every month, but it's crazy that today is the last day of November! I am subbing for reading support in 3rd and 4th grade today - a nice easy way to end the week. Maybe a yoga DVD tonight, or maybe not.

Have a great day!

So, tomorrow is the "bid day" that we will no longer be home owners. The closing, which I thought was never going to happen, will occur tomorrow afternoon. Phew. No run today. The hills kicked me a little yesterday but I will kick them back tomorrow morning. I might try a different route and see how that goes. it was kinda nice to run in the road and not have to worry about cars zipping by at 60 miles an hour! The road is narrow enough and windy enough so that cars are forced to drive slower and its not a main thorough fare:) No chickens though......

Woodheat - I loved that blog post about the virtual choir. Thank you so much for popping in and sharing.

Trish, are those the trails you took Penny and I on? They are fantastic for views, and I can see why they would be good for your mental health.

I haven't been running in about a week. I hurt my back again, and am waiting for an appointment with my chiropractor.

Good morning all!

I am subbing a half day today. Which is good, because last night's run took a lot out of me! It was barely 30 degrees F. But such beautiful Christmas lights!

Tonight is stretch class. A perfect way to start off my easy week!

Have a super day.

Suezette--we flick a switch on the wall and it comes on......the "box" is malfunctioning and it turns off after 10 minutes or so...safety feature..

Doris---looks like hill training is in your future!!!

Christy---we bought a generator a couple years ago and then had an electrician do something at the electrical box so we plug the generator in in the garage...flick off the main power and push something on the other box....the furnace is on there...so we have heat and A/C...

Hubby is driving me to work today and then we are going for dinner...close to where I work...Soho Burger Bar, I work in downtown Buffalo, bought a groupon deal(never been, good way to try a new place) and it expires in Dec...need to get that baby used...then I will come home and push play!!!

Make today count!!!

Trish-sounds like a great new LOVE, those hiking trails. Will you be able to keep that up through the winter months? Prayers that this treatment goes smoothly and you and Don can finally be done dealing with cancer. *HUGS*

Beth-Nice to have a fire during a power outage. We love our pellet stove but it doesnít work during a power outage. Fortunately our outages donít usually last long, couple hours at most. Usually. Hope I didnít just jinx us.

Doris-I guess thatís one way to force yourself into hill training-move to the top of the hill. I love it!

Anneoflunges-great job on the lunges. Those things make me sore every time I do them..

Kimiko-sounds like a lovely run today. I love misty/foggy days.

Nera-I agree! My DH needs a hobby so heíll leave me alone with mine.

Made it to st class at the gym today. Didnít get a run in. Iím so exhausted. Itís not even 7:00 and Iím ready for bed. LOL. Will do spin again in the am.

Trish big hugs for you and your family. Glad the kids did so well in their game.

No things aren't better for us. Well my son has another job starting next semester but the hubby is still with out one. Still procrastinating on things that need to be done. I just try to figure out how to make my grocery dollars go the farthest. That would be easier if the hubby wasn't home all day and running out to pick up milk and bread and a few other things pretty much every other day. If he can't get a job he should have a hobby so he would stay home. LOL!!!

Morning all,
It is a grey, grey day here on the Peninsula - perfect for running! Love it when it is cool and kind of misty out on the trail.
Beth, now I understand. That will be great for those no power days we all get.
Trish, praying for your family and that the DH's treatments go smoothly. Cancer sucks! It can be beaten tho.
Will be doing a nice upper body workout about 3 today. Really looking forward to it. My run was a perfect run - I'm still basking in the joy of it. The cormorants were just chattering along the route and there was an occasional duck joining in. The waves were gentle and just lapping along... sigh. Total perfection!

Blessings,
Kimiko

Beth, I don't get it? Fireplace needs a new computer? Is it an electric fireplace with a thermostat or something?

Trish, hugs! I hope this is the treatment that pushes that cancer into remission forever for Don!! Love those hiking hills!!

I need a color and cut.

Haven't run since my marathon on Sunday but have gone for a couple walks. Actually going to get out there and walk again once I get off this computer. It just sucks me right in every time!!

Have a great day!!

Doris-sounds like a wicked running route...either way.
Beth-glad your fp is getting fixed. We are really wishing that our 3rd phase of addition would have worked out b/c there was going to be a woodburning stove in the basement part...something to sit around and be cozy. Enjoy the workout today.
Running trails in the woods-JEALOUS!!!! we don't have anything like that. Well, we do have a paved rails to trails here, but I want some dirt under my feet.
Trish-great job for Josh and Miss!!! Here, the kids wouldn't be allowed to fill in for another team. If you're not on the team's roster ,you don't play. the game would have been forfeited. :(
Gabe has a high school game tonight but it's out of town so we'll miss it. :( He's really improving and I'll be mad if I miss another goal!!
Okay-time to get out for my walk. My thighs are feeling yesterday's lunges and run/walk but my back feels really good! I'm going to take it easy today. Plus, I am really tired for some reason.
Have a great day,Team!!!

Hi team. The cat, while loving carpet, has not clawed at it. Phew. She has three scratching posts and she has been using them.
Ran today at the new house went 3.2 miles round trip. Killer route!! The house is on top of a hill, so the beginning is downhill, no matter which way I go. Soooo, the return route is all uphill! Yikes. Did a bit of walking. Ah well. My legs will get used to hills:)
So, what's this I read about a computer in the fireplace??? There has got to be an easier way to get rid of a computer. hee hee hee

The fireplace.has this box for the igniting....that is what needs to be replaced.....but this one will allow us to use the fireplace in a power failure...which is nice since our generator is set to do that...

Looking forward to TF45 and HIIT 20....I need to start packing for our trip next Friday.....

Hey everyone:)

Sorry again for the delay in responding:)

Last weekend Josh and Miss both had ringette games. Miss's coach was away, so we got to play the way things should. Josh's team won his game - he rocked in goal. Then Miss's team went out there, Josh was called up to play because they were so short...they were SOOOO unimpressed to have a 9 year old play goal for them, gave him a wee bit of grief of the get go. But, he ROCKED the game....allowed only 2 goals from the #1 team in our area...they were SOOOO mad - thought we stacked the game. When I told their coach that the goalie was a novice one called up, he looked pretty sheepish:)

We are moving forward with Don...he is starting treatment in about 1.5 weeks...

I have found a new LOVE workout:) There is an area above where I live that hiking trails are super tough....I am doing them every day now, which gives me the endorphin boost I so dearly need:)

Hugs and love you guys!!!
Trish

Hi Team,
OMGosh, can't believe how long its been since I was here. Hope all are well.
Beth, why does your fireplace have a computer? Must be mighty high tech. mine had a screen and little thing I put the wood one before I threw a match in.
Anne of many - hows the baby coming along?
Cari, you must be teaching lots! Lucky you.
Nera, good job on the running and biking. Are things better for you and the family?

Well, I passed my big test and have the job. However, I have to take a test to get my federal OK next month. sigh. So, back to the books for a few more weeks. I was out of running for two weeks. Went to my mom's for one week and ran a bit, but not all I wanted to. We mostly did lots of walking. Then, after I came home I got the flu! I got my flu shot, but still got the flu. big time bummer..... But, ran today for a little over an hour. It felt so darned good.

I hope you are all doing great. Life is good!

Hope you are

Blessings,
Kimiko

Hi rooks - hope everyone had a good turkey day!

Beth - fireplace...computer? I don't get it. That sounds like an expensive repair, whatever it is. Blech.

Re: scalp massage - the base of my scalp (where it meets my neck) is ridiculously ticklish. We learned this when my sister was in cosmo. school and tried to give me one of those fabulous scalp massages. I went (literally) flying across the room. Needless to say, she doesn't do that anymore. emoticon

Gettin' chilly out there. It was 8F on my ride in this morning. For the record, 8F seems a LOT colder on a bike than it does when I'm running! I think I'm going to need some long underwear for my poor little leggies. You know, I've never really ridden in this type of weather before - it's a little bit of a trial and error experiment in terms of clothing. I think I *almost* have it figured out. On the upside, I get to look at all these pretty Christmas lights on the way home - stuff you wouldn't even notice from your car! I think I'm going to start taking pictures and putting them on FB - some of this stuff is really neat.

Ok, gotta scoot.

Happy Tuesday!

Hello everyone. Usually cut my own hair so I'm missing out on the scalp massages. May need to make a pamper me appt. Wow. I had every excuse in the book last week. Didn't run at all, just a little puttsin around exercise. I'm not proud of it and I don't feel "good" this week so I'm getting back on track! Running today after work. It's a beautiful, sunny, about 70 deg day.

Good morning all!

So there was a new shampoo girl at my salon last night. And let me tell you, she gave the BEST shampoo I ever got. I even tipped her because it was so awesome.

There is a two-hour delay this morning, but I have to check if the gym is following it or not... I can't believe I woke up before they called the delay. Ha!

Today is upper body and a swim! Have a super day!

Our cat has apparently adjusted already to the move. She LOVES carpet. We had none, now most rooms have carpet. She naps on each carpet and rug in my parent's house.
No run today. Mondays are a long day.....work 9-5:30, then pottery 6-8. Dinner finally at 8:30. No time to run. I am hoping to get a run in tomorrow......have some last minute repairs to supervise and an empty house to clean.



Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Hi everyone! Finally getting over the cold/flu thingy! Blech! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. As Bobby said we did a 10k Gobblers Gallop and then I proceeded to sneeze, cough and get stuffed up and by the time we hit my sisters for dinner I was fully engulfed in the flu. Boo! But I survived!
Hope all are doing well.
I am now heading for a bubble bath. Take care!

I love getting my hair cut. The scalp massage is so worth it. My hair stylist has learned not to talk to me during this time. LOL!!!!

Good morning! I haven't been here in a few days. I just got notification that I am the motivator today!!! I find that hard to believe with my lack of participation here on this site. That said, I am honored and humbled...maybe it's a message that I should set a good example by logging food and fitness.
Had a nice Thanksgiving...we finished the leftovers on Sat. evening so no more stuffing and gravy for my lunches. :( I'm heading to the chiropracter soon....very happy about that! Hopefully, I'll be out running this weekend. We'll see how it goes. I have been much better since Friday and Saturday already.
Have a great day,TEam!!!!

Good morning all!

Woke up to the sound of gunshots this morning... welcome to hunting season!

I have a run scheduled for this morning; a ton of errands to do this afternoon. I get my haircut later today (hooray!) and I can't wait. I LOVE getting my haircut... the head rub, the good-smelling shampoo...

My entire body hurts. We did the "big" move today. All of the stuff we kept is piled up somewhere in my parent's house. We made the bed and put food in the 'fridge. I am pooped!
OK. I was impressed with the virtual choir:)

Hey Rookies!
Yeah, I know I don't hang out here anymore, but there are a bunch of you that I do miss!
I came across a video that I think pertains to anyone who has made friends on the internet (and I KNOW that that applies to a bunch of you.) It's 15 minutes long and starts a little slow, but stick with it, it's worth it.) So here it is.

Good morning all!

It's a beautiful day. Planning for a little run later this morning, and then I'm going to take advantage of the SUV I'm driving for the weekend and making a trip to Goodwill to get rid of some chairs.

I'm glad you are feeling better Beth. Take it easy on the Turbofire.

Rich, I didn't have pie here (it wasn't Thanksgiving in Canada). But it looks good!

No run for mr this morning. I got up to go, but its -16 Celcius, and windy. The flag is sticking straight out. I will wait til tomorrow morning, when I don't have to go to work. At least I can wait til daylight if it's still this cold and windy. I seem to be a bit of a wuss this year. Perhaps I need a pointy boot.....

Hi all. Had dinner at my brother's and sister-in-law's house. It was good but always weird as they have many, many, many cats. There is cat hair everywhere. I am not allergic but my eyes do get itchy after a few hours. Oh well. Families, gotta love them anyway:)

Packing and moving continues. I am tired. All I do is work, run and pack. I will be glad when this is all over! Then, in the spring, we get to move to the boat. The good news about that is the "stuff" for the boat is already packed:) OK, enough whining and complaining.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thursday.

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Carrie, sorry about your car but good that you got a cool rental.
Anne, I shudder to think of you and all your kidlets trying to decide what is good enough to keep for one closet:)

So, we have made yet another donation of winter coats and jackets. I think we have eliminated all the ones we don't really wear any more. Now, what about those pots and pans?!

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate.

Well, it's been an interesting night. My car broke down on the way home from shopping - it's the WORST night for that to happen - everything is crazy because of the holiday. But I'm driving a great rental SUV for the weekend, and I got a discount because of the holiday. Sigh...
