Cardio killed me
Thursday, May 20, 2010      5 comments

I sucked at cardio today. I had to lower my speed despite doing the same hill level previously at the higher speed. (sigh) Oh well, tomorrow I'll concentrate on cardio as I have two hours to spend just on that. I did my strength circuit toda... Read more

How great is that word? So I got a SPmail from Coach Jen today to say that the language I used in one of my blog posts is inappropriate. (sigh) I wondered who was visiting my blog that was that way inclined and then I figured that SP is p... Read more
Anger, hate and sadness
Saturday, May 15, 2010      5 comments

As some of you may have noticed I had a bit of a rant recently. It was set off by a thread on the main board. It got me thinking about how much people hate fat. That makes me sad. You continually see people, it seems to be especially wom... Read more
I am so stinking miffed!

I should just stay away from the main board some days. The topic I just posted a rant about is whether obesity is a moral failing, or, as it is stated in the topic line: "Weight and Ethics." Here is what set me off today and my reply: ... Read more
Still in a funk

Mothers' Day sucks. Didn't go to the gym because I was trying to put family first. (snort) Shows what an idiot I am. Made a big fattening breakfast that I had to yell at hubby to wake up and come down to share with us. He disappeare... Read more

Didn't make it to the gym today. I had to get the kidlet ready for her dance class and then go to a baby shower for my niece-in-law. I felt really motivated this morning (but not enough to get up at 6:30 to go to the gym so I'd be home before ... Read more
Old Friends

Had a very fun day today. Went to lunch at a girlfriend's place. The five of us have known each other since elementary school. It's rather amazing really that we're all still in touch and pretty good friends despite not seeing each other a lo... Read more
Not a dang thing...

I woke up with the intention to go for a swim but I got up too late. Good thing I checked the schedule on-line before I left or it would have been a wasted trip. I am not a good enough swimmer to justify taking up a lane in the lane swim so I ... Read more
Snow on May 3rd

Yup, here in Calgary it is snowing. I managed to get the kidlet out to Fish Creek Park (a large provincial park within the Calgary city limits) for a bit of a walk before the precipitation started. Environment Canada says to expect 5 cm but my... Read more
Killer Salad

In a good way. Romaine lettuce, spinach, avocado, bacon (leftover from this weekend), sunflower seeds, croutons and strawberry vinaigrette dressing. Lots and lots of calories but still somewhat in line for what I "spend" in the morning for bre... Read more

Yesterday we went out to my Dad's to do chores, check the greenhouse and see his new Lazyboy chair. My Dad is an eighty year old widower who lives on an acreage. He has had some health challenges recently and continually threatens to move from... Read more

Thought you might like to see this article and pictures. This fellow lives less than nine miles as the crow flies from where I live. Nice to know there are so many critters in our local eco-system.

Hitch in my giddy-up

I had a difficult time trying to walk this morning. Funny how that happens. Usually I'd just pop an Advil and go from there but it does work itself out. Interestingly it goes away and I didn't have any problem on the treadmill today. I wish ... Read more
How do I do it?
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      5 comments

Today I got a nice e-mail from someone asking me how I do it. I suspect that I have been a bit misleading with my tracker and other information because I haven't said much about my real goals. I need to lose lots more than what my tracker show... Read more
I owe BL an apology...

I usually have a bit of disdain for Biggest Loser but I have to give them credit because I was in tears most of tonight's episode. The cast went to Texas and ran a 5K with locals. They were all perfectly lovely with the people who came out to ... Read more
