Tuesday, June 25, 2013      9 comments

I am weary to my bones today. I don't know why. I had a good workout today - my favorite video, which is JM's No More Trouble Zones. It was a little more challenging than usual, but I fully completed more of the exercises, so that was AWESOME. ... Read more

I am always trying to find higher protein lunches, and today I accidentally hit upon a very tasty combination. It is black beans, cottage cheese, cilantro and a sprinkle of black pepper. All just what I had in the fridge. Cilantro is so good, I ... Read more

We had a bit of rain and lower temps yesterday which helped with the fires. A lot of people were let back into their homes, and they are now saying 30% containment. I had never heard the term containment until the fire last year. It's a beautifu... Read more

The fires are burning homes at an amazingly fast rate. Over 3500 people evacuated in Black Forest, hundreds more around the Royal Gorge. Pueblo fire is almost out, thank GOD. We can smell the smoke from here. It's like a repeat of last year, bri... Read more
Summer, oh Summer

Summer is not my favorite. I don't like being hot. I grew up in Arizona and I left as soon as I could. Last year we had the big fires here in Colorado. They were within a few miles of my house. I had to evacuate one night. The sky was orange at ... Read more

I am having an issue. I love to snack and graze. Grazing is not good for me, though, because I will literally eat ALL DAY. So, I try to stay out of the kitchen. I work at home and my desk is 8 feet from the kitchen. Here is my issue-my fam... Read more

Getting Back from the Cold
Wednesday, April 24, 2013      1 comments

I have had a bad cold for about two weeks. In that time, I went over on calories almost every day and hardly exercised. I've always wished I was one of those people who can't eat when they're sick, but that's not me! So, this week, I've st... Read more

Just took my old Aiko out for a walk. Less than a mile. Took 30 minutes. It's ok though, I have some nasty sore throat and not feeling so good anyway. I hope it helped her. She's obese. She hates walking. She needs help.... Read more
