I wrote about wanting to get a personal trainer a couple months back. Thank you ever so much everyone who gave me pointers! I've been on the lookout, but so far, it's been a little difficult finding someone who would be willing to work with... Read more
First time: Working out in front of the TV
Saturday, March 16, 2013      6 comments

I'm an adrenaline junkie, someone who loves working out in a competitive team setting or challenging my best time when running (not that I'm up to running just yet, it's more of a staggered limp-hop walk). Using workout videos, in front of my TV... Read more

Not as late as last time, at least! I host a Super Bowl party every single year. This year's the first time I've ever done it in Germany- plus the first time I had hot dogs on the menu. They aren't pictured, though. ... Read more

I was in the mood for Chinese take-out yesterday. Well, no, I was really in the mood for General Tso's chicken and didn't feel at all like cooking for myself. I walked into the Asian take-out place close to my subway station (did I ever me... Read more

I've really been prescribed REST. No, really. I can't even... rest? That's IT? Well, a few other things too. My eye is paralyzed to let the inflammation of the optic nerve that's behind the eyeball in the brain heal, I have no pupil ... Read more
