I went to the ST class this AM--I didn't know yesterday if I'd make it and told the instructor but I got there today. We used the big exercise balls so I am tall and got them down for people. At the end, I was putting them back up--a bit like sh... Read more

Monday, December 08, 2014      3 comments

I didn't think I'd do it--I had said I wanted to run 2 races this year -- and 5K is the best I do--but I didn't know if I'd manage 2. I did a personal best in May and decided that was enough. But--that goal on my goal board was mocking me--so I... Read more

Not trying Whole 30 just yet

Thursday, September 04, 2014      3 comments

I have decided that I am not going to try Whole 30. I need to get and read the book and see if this makes sense for me--cause no dairy, grains or beans will really change the way I eat for me and for hubby. I need a better understanding of "why... Read more

September goals

Monday, September 01, 2014      6 comments

Funny how Sept 1 feels like the beginning of a new year--I guess it is the school year mentality. Working with schools, even though my kids are done with school, keeps me in tune with that! So--I need to spell out my goals for this month. I ai... Read more

Newest goal--follow-up to "What to do?"

Tuesday, August 05, 2014      9 comments

I asked for advice in July--What to do? What to do?. Many people saw my fear of swimming and water and, of course, said "go for that and crush that fear." Great idea but now is not the time--end of summer, no pool access without changing gyms, ... Read more
