Day long trainings are hard. Just a ton of information and not a lot of meaningful movement. My brain is just. about. fried. Thank goodness tomorrow is the last day. Our principal is fabulous. She brings fruit. I feasted on things like... Read more

I went to a get together with women that I used to work with at my last school last night. These are the people I spent three years crying with, commiserating with, laughing with, and kvetching with. They are amazing human beings, but... ... Read more

Okay well maybe not terrific. My run this morning sucked. My heart and mind just weren't into it. It took a LOT of talking myself into going to start was a pretty morning OUTSIDE and I didn't want to run INSIDE I think. Schoo... Read more

I spent 10 hours of my life today sitting down. My butt hurts. I drove little more than an hour up to Denver and another hourish back home in a very bumpy Jeep. (They've done something horrid to our roads here and it feels like the car (all o... Read more

I talked myself into going to the gym today and I kinda wish I'd have chosen to spin vs. run. I didn't work as hard as I should have and with spinning, it wouldn't have been an option :P I found out that I *CAN* get home from the gym, get ... Read more

Breakfast shake, fabulous. I love the chocolate muchly! Someone suggested making it with a mix of ice and water in the blender, and that works out much better--it's cold and a lot thicker. I'll probably make them the night before and leave th... Read more
