Progress, not perfection

I had a pretty good this week staying on track. Challenged myself with some new exercise things, including riding my bike in town (yikes!). My nutrition is a little dicey. I eat breakfast, then sort of forget to eat until later. Then I'm rav... Read more

This week was the 1st week of my Biggest Loser's Summer challenge. My team, the Blue Bears did great - and I really enjoy the people on it. I met my goals this week including walking daily, adding in at least 3 classes or DVDs, logging fo... Read more

It's been good being home again this week and settling back into a happy routine. Next week begins summer volleyball camps and open gyms, so life will get a bit crazy again - but that's next week ;-) Getting hotter here, and I do not enjoy... Read more

The show was great fun! The costumes are very cool, the acts are amazing. One particular act - Wheel of Death - had my stomach dropping. Total rock-star act! I've included a link to see some video clips of the show - don't miss the Wheel (la... Read more

Wowzer - what a start to my fun weekend away! The good news - we walked to the pub where we were spending the evening - that was a couple of hot sweaty miles. The not so good news - since I was not the designated driver (a role I usu... Read more
Planning to succeed

I take quite a few mini trips. Most are volleyball related, and a few are just for fun. I often think to myself that I should plan ahead and take food and workout clothes, but generally fail to do so. I have one of these trips starting Friday... Read more
The week that was

I've had a good week in terms of exercising and getting in lots of functional fitness (digging up new garden space, fencing it off from the critters). The weekend had a mixed bag as far as my eating. We ate on the run several times leading... Read more
Weekend review
Monday, May 21, 2012      2 comments

This was an interesting weekend for me. Often when I'm away from home I just give myself permission to make tons of rotten choices, armed with lots of excuses - unhealthy food, failure to exercise, sleeping habits - you get the picture. I ... Read more

Things in central Arizona are very smoky these days. We can see and smell the smoke from the Gladiator Fire near Crown King. This is a beautiful part of Arizona, much prized by outdoor enthusiasts. I hope firefighters can get the fire contain... Read more

This week I'm returning from a conference in Scottsdale, AZ. The weather was great - usually June in the Phoenix metro area is rough, but it was lovely this past week. The facilities were beautiful, the resort and banquet staff exceedingly pro... Read more

Today is our day for fruit and veggie co-op pickup. Our warm weather is so late this year that I don't have diddly ready to eat from the garden yet. That's why the co-op is so helpful. What a haul today! For $15 I received: 1 large h... Read more
Sunny days, wicked wind

The sunny days are so nice! The wind, unfortunately, has been going crazy, making everyone's allergies go nuts. I'll take it, though, when I see the traumatic weather so many parts of the country are suffering from. My heart goes out to all. ... Read more

Today is day three of my 21 day vegan challenge. I feel full of energy and am in a really good mood. I did my best to set myself up for success. I planned out my menus for the three weeks using PCRM (Physican's Committee for Responsible M... Read more
