Day 338: Christmas is Coming!
I'm getting into that holiday spirit! We're two days into Kate's advent calendar and so far I'm doing pretty well - she got a dragon coloring book on Thursday that she loved, a neck scarf thing yesterday that she's not hot on, and "reindeer cor... Read more

Day 335: Good News Bad News
So, first the bad news...I'm still up 2 lbs from Thanksgiving morning. So I guess that higher day-after weigh-in was not a fluke.

Day 334: A Badly Needed Mental Reboot
So, I went into the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with all kinds of good intentions about tackling that to-do list that I didn't get to tackle when I didn't get to take the week before Thanksgiving off. How'd it go, you ask? Well....I didn't ge... Read more
Day 330: The Day After
Well, I'm trying to kick off the holidays right - I spent 45 minutes raking and shoveling in the front yard (getting it all into the green waste can), then headed out on a 10-mile bike ride. Take that, Thanksgiving calories!

Day 328: Let's Take These Mistakes as a Learning Opportunity...
Last night I met a couple friends for dinner. And as usual, I downed two glasses of wine within a couple hours, and then was really feeling it. I used to drink 2 or 3 glasses of wine and then drive home without hardly thinking about it, but I'... Read more
Got some running in this morning! I really HAVE to get back on track or I'm going to lose all that hard-earned progress. I did three 5-minute runs again, but this time I didn't let myself break up the last one, did it straight through. I'm de... Read more
Day 325: Sunday
I've gotten some down time this weekend, which I really needed. Wish I could take this week off, but I've got to work tomorrow at the very least. But I know we'll shut down at lunchtime on Wednesday, and then I'll get a lovely long weekend, wo... Read more
Day 323: Friday!
It's Friday, and even better, I"m not at work!
Well, it's all relative...I was supposed to tak... Read more
Day 322: Getting Back on the C25K Wagon
Oh man, I've been bad, life has just been getting in the way, and after months of faithfully getting two days a week of running in, I only got one day a week in for about three weeks, and today was the first time I'd run since Nov. 2nd!!
I ... Read more

I really need to get back to daily blogging, I've been falling down on the job!
Had a great d... Read more
Day 317: Catching Up
Whew, I am so sweaty and stinky right now, I can hardly stand myself! Took the dog for a 2-1/2 mile walk, then put in two solid hours on the front and back yards - pruning, sweeping, raking. I have to say, the running really has increased my s... Read more
Day 314: Back from GOTV
I'm just not even going to say anything about the presidential election because it's just too depressing.
I got back at 3am today from GOTV (get out the vote) for a state Senate race in Orange County (Southern California). According to my ... Read more
Day 309: Turning the Corner
Okay, I think I am actually ready to hit the road this afternoon to Orange County (Southern California) for GOTV (get out the vote)! Totally crazy with both of us going, albeit to different campaigns...just sooo much prep. We've got my dad and... Read more
Day 308: That Which Does Not Kill Us, Makes Us Stronger....Right???
Oh man, what a day. What a week! Long story, but suffice to say that work has been extremely stressful the past few days. Way too much to go into, but we're all feeling pretty frazzled.
And this morning was nuts. Kate woke up with a sto... Read more
