Overall, I am pleased with my January workouts. I managed to reach my cardio goal of 5 days each week, with the exception of one week when I only did 4 days of cardio. My nutrition though, not so much. I haven't been careful, or even co... Read more

Snow is in the forecast, so that means the grocery stores are packed & the shelves are empty. DH had a couple things on his want list & he's been sick, so I went out while he put the kids to bed. As I leisurely perused the aisle (a luxury I ra... Read more

Good Riddance, 2009!
Saturday, January 02, 2010      6 comments

2009 was a bust. Certainly one of the most challenging years I have ever had. It started in January with the tragic & unexpected death of an old friend. As a direct result of that, I returned to the workforce part-time. I enjoy being back at ... Read more

I've somehow managed to let my new healthy habits slip away from me. And I've got lots of good excuses; holidays & sick kiddos being the two biggies. But the busy-ness of the holidays & having to keep sick kiddos out of the childcare at the g... Read more

So last night (Saturday), DH & I were playing cards with several friends when I blurted out, "This sure has been a loooooong weekend". Most of our friends looked at me puzzled like, "Who says that???" Since I've started this gym-habit, ... Read more

I had joined a gym a few days before I found SP, which was just over one month ago. On most weeks, I have been getting to the gym 4 days a week (Mon-Thurs.) Up to this point I have only been using the treadmill. I figured that walking was all... Read more
I think we have a habit!
Wednesday, April 16, 2008      4 comments

I noticed my youngest had a scratchy throat on Monday night, so I decided to keep her (& her germs) away from the childcare at the gym. We skipped the gym on Tuesday & just kind of relaxed around the house. (Well, she relaxed, I got caught up ... Read more
