So I had a cup with a top that was on a bit too tightly, and needed some help in getting it off. Looking in the drawer at my boyfriends house I found one of those grippy thingy's that provide some traction for unscrewing jars. This really did ... Read more

Saturday, January 10, 2009      5 comments

So I was sitting in my living room contemplating which DVD I should pull out of the pile and do today, and looking out the window, wishing I could do the DVD outside, since it was such a lovely day. No wind, sun shining, when it occured to me, ... Read more

Phase 2 of our vacation was a backpack from the South Fork of Big Pine Creek out of Big Pine in the Owens River Valley on the East side of the Sierra's in California. We left Yosemite on Thursday morning, and headed toward Big Pine. It was aft... Read more

Larry and I met some friends at North Pine Campground in Yosemite Valley midweek, right after the Labor day weekend, and still the campground was full! Yosemite is a big draw no matter what time of year, but we had beautiful weather, and very f... Read more

We climbed Cathedral Peak in Yosemite on Friday June 19th, as a side trip to a wedding we attended in Vista, CA on the Sunday afterward. It was an early start, around 4:30 wake-up call, although it was so cold where we camped that my watch died... Read more
stuck inside!
Sunday, May 25, 2008      2 comments

Yes, the long (4 day for me) weekend has turned out rainy, stormy, cloudy, dreary, downright depressing! But, oddly enough I'm not really depressed about it! We got out on Friday for a really nice trail run, got snowed on even, but it was a ki... Read more
vegetables vs vegetarian
Saturday, May 03, 2008      6 comments

Apparantly not the same thing, especially when it comes to burritos! We stopped on the way back from mountain biking at a little hole in the wall Mexican place we have been to before, and I thought, get the vegetarian burrito, it will be full o... Read more

It was a week of off-site meeting, after work outings, and generally outside my normal routine. I guess it started with the weekend, as instead of going up to Reno like I usually do, my boyfriend came to Sac for a visit. So Sunday was a family... Read more

Emotional eating
Saturday, March 15, 2008      3 comments

There was a recent article on Spark about this topic, and a poll, and when I took the poll, I wondered, can you stop being an emotional eater? I think I don't eat from emotions on a conscious level, so how do you control something that in out o... Read more

Well, I haven't blogged in a long time, but I guess I'll give it another try! Just thought I'd share my new goals, to try to jump start my program and keep it from getting stale. Instead of just trying to get to the minimum of fruits and veggi... Read more
