Go Red!
Friday, February 06, 2009      3 comments

Red's always been my color. I like the boldness of it, how it really pops out in most situations (that favorite red pillow in a room of beigeness), it makes me feel good whenever I wear it. Today there is a new reason for Red to be the ... Read more

Yesterday was a lot of work & then a lot of good time spent with friends playing dominoes and snacking, snacking, snacking at my house. The time with my friends was obviously good; but, my usual attention to eating healthfully and staying withi... Read more
Lucky 13
Friday, January 16, 2009      4 comments

Today is Day 13 of Bootcamp. Even though this makes it a Friday the 13th of sorts, I consider it another lucky day of working out. Whoever would have thought that I'd 'grow up' and think that it's a good and lucky day when I can get in some ex... Read more

I am soooo glad that I am doing this Bootcamp! Today's exclamation simply comes from the fact that this is probably the most strength training & focus I've ever experienced. I needed it. I feel it. I am enjoying it. Who am I kidding whe... Read more

Bootcamp Days 2 & 3
Tuesday, January 06, 2009      3 comments

Successfully completed 2 more days of the New You Bootcamp requirements. I did 2 reps of Day 2's video and 1 of Day 3's. Must say that I felt today's more than the first two. Obviously, a sign that these exercises used muscles that I don't w... Read more

Christmas Joys
Monday, December 29, 2008      4 comments

First, I'll get out of the way my confession that I strayed a bit off my regular diet the past few days. Not too horibbly; but, definitely went over my calorie range with somewhat less than nutritious items. That's the first time I fell off t... Read more
First Blog - What the heck am I doing?
Monday, December 22, 2008      6 comments

I'm a novice blogger, to say the least, as this is my initial stab at it. Other than as a teenager when I used a diary for a month or so, I've never been one to journal my life or anything else. So, if you are one of the kind souls who reads... Read more
