There's a hurricane headed up the east coast, projected to hit my area (DC/VA) tonight into tomorrow morning. First, good luck to the folks on the coast. As a Floridian I know how stressful hurricane season can get. Second, I hope it bounces out... Read more

The kiddo is off to Florida for the summer, so J and I have almost two months of grown-up time! Yay! This weekend, we went hiking off Skyline Drive in western Virginia - about two hours from home. It was fantastic! We hiked all day, spent the ni... Read more

I was up past my bedtime last night, so when the alarm went off at 5:10AM I yelled at it, rolled back over, and slept another hour. I don't feel guilty, though. Yesterday was Twofer Tuesday, wherein I go to boot camp in the morning and run... Read more
Not Quite Right
Tuesday, June 24, 2014      2 comments

As I have mentioned approximately 87987298379487238749237423 times, I *detest* push ups. Which means I need to do them more. Which makes me even angrier about doing them. Which makes me hate them more. Repeat. This morning was a mostly arm... Read more
4-Miler Race Report
Monday, June 23, 2014      4 comments

I'm good for a 5K, but I was a little nervous about doing a 4-miler. It's only 9/10ths of a mile more, but it matters. My internal list of reasons to freak out: (1) I haven't really been running all that much. (2) When I do run, it's ~2 miles at... Read more
Pyramids & Perfection

My boot camp instructor, Tom, is not the type to dole out meaningless compliments. He's more prone to yelling at people to suck it up than pandering. So when you get a compliment, it means that much more. This morning was some sort of insane pyr... Read more

Today's boot camp was a rousing game of Chase Tom Around Sterling, Virginia. I ran/walked 4.25 miles in one hour. Now, that is a 14 minute/mile, which is not exactly record-setting pace, but I have short little legs and I was *running* for a goo... Read more
Still Stuck
Monday, June 16, 2014      3 comments

The scale is still stuck, but I'm not going to stress about it too much. Stress enough to make sure I get my ass to boot camp at least four days a week. Stress enough to put down the french fries and pick up the broccoli. But not obsess over fou... Read more
Where Have I Been!?
Tuesday, June 10, 2014      2 comments

Sheesh, have I really not posted anything since 20 May?! Well, let's see, I've been going to boot camp, and I've also been trying to run more since I have a 4-miler on 21 June. This weekend I managed to do 4 miles in 51 minutes, which is p... Read more
Excercise Isn't About Doing What You Like ...
Tuesday, May 20, 2014      3 comments

As you've probably figured out by now if you've been reading my blatherings regularly, I love me some boot camp. I also hate me some boot camp. Really, I love it when it's done, but it sure does suck for an hour straight! The instructor, T... Read more
An Uncharacteristically Lazy Three Days
Monday, May 19, 2014      2 comments

Further proof of my theory that it doesn't matter what the hell I do, my body will do whatever the hell it wants ... I skipped boot camp on Friday, was totally lazy on Saturday, and on Sunday was supposed to run a 5K (the Color Run) but as... Read more
Mid-May Check-in
Friday, May 16, 2014      1 comments

Well hello, May 16th. I skipped boot camp this morning, as planned. Last night was a work dinner for my boss who's leaving and I knew those things can stretch into 3+ hours depending on how many people feel the need to give speeches. Thank... Read more

There's a woman at my gym I chat with for a few minutes a few times a week. I'm usually finishing up and heading out as she's coming in, but we're friendly enough. Today, this happened: Her: "Good morning! Can I just stop for a second... Read more
Feeling hot Hot HOT
Wednesday, May 14, 2014      2 comments

Several years ago when I did boot camp, there were only outdoor classes. Outdoors. 6AM. Boot camp. February. Clearly I was insane. So when I went back and saw that now there are indoor studios, I thought it was awesome! No snow, no ice, no... Read more
