Day 35: My Karate Kid

Thursday, February 04, 2016      0 comments

Well, Kate is now officially an Advanced Junior Black Belt! I still haven't figured everything out - one of the moms said when they're 13 they can go for Adult Black Belt, but I'm not sure if that means they can start Black Belt Prep when they ... Read more

Day 34: Movin' Right Along

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      2 comments

Got some running in today - 17 minutes total (my usual 2-min increments), 2.9 miles. Tonight, Kate promotes to ADVANCED Junior Black Belt! She's kind of in a holding pattern now - she can't start training for Adult Black Belt till she's ... Read more

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      6 comments

Thanks all, for your comments on my blog yesterday about the Girl Scout mess. I'm still not too happy about it, but my co-leader and I sent out an email to the parents last night. We had to send a similar email last spring and they all respond... Read more

Day 32: Can I Get Off This Ride Now?

Monday, February 01, 2016      7 comments

Ughhhhhh. I started off today feeling so good, and then it all went to hell. First, I found out that a guy I used to work with, who is just a few years older than me (I'm 48), died last week of a heart attack!!! How is that even possible... Read more

Sunday, January 31, 2016      3 comments

So, if you saw my whiny post yesterday, you know I didn't have the best week. But that's changed! Yesterday I took Kate to get her hair cut short - her request - it looks soooooo cute! Here it is: Read more

Day 30: Keeping My Chin Up

Saturday, January 30, 2016      4 comments

It's been a rough week on some levels. I was up all night Sunday night with stomach cramps and stayed home Monday. I felt mostly back to normal on Tuesday but all week, it seems like I keep swinging between being starving, and my stomach hurti... Read more

Day 27: Keeping Up With Life

Wednesday, January 27, 2016      0 comments

I was home sick on Monday, went back to work yesterday and holy cow, I think I slammed two days' worth of work into one! Crazy day. Which was good in a way - I still wasn't feeling 100% but I didn't have time to think about it. Back to normal... Read more

Day 25: Taking Care of Myself

Monday, January 25, 2016      3 comments

I didn't have that busy a day yesterday, but I was just exhausted when I went to bed. I had some stomach issues when I first woke up, but then I took the dog for a walk and was basically fine. But I was kind of tired all day. Anyhow, ende... Read more

Day 24: Too Much Balance? ;-)

Sunday, January 24, 2016      0 comments

So, I think I may be starting to go a little overboard on this whole make-time-for-me-and-downtime thing...after running errands like crazy for several hours yesterday, I crashed out on my bed with a book for two solid hours, then sat and watche... Read more

Saturday, January 23, 2016      1 comments

Here's the post I made on the "Love My Body Challenge" FB page today...we're supposed to be choosing something about ourselves to appreciate each day, plus today's exercise was to "flip" your negative thoughts to positive: "Today I chose to... Read more

Day 22: Friday!

Friday, January 22, 2016      0 comments

Yay, it's Friday, and it's already 2pm! I've been in meetings and briefings almost the entire day, so it has gone by quickly. I was supposed to run today, but Bam-Bam was determined to go with even though I tried to explain to her that i... Read more

Day 21: Balance

Thursday, January 21, 2016      2 comments

This morning, I had planned to get out and run - haven't run yet this week! - but ended up staying in bed snuggling with Paul instead. I was starting to beat myself later, because it's not raining today and it's supposed to pour tomorrow mornin... Read more

Day 20: The Importance of Taking Breaks

Wednesday, January 20, 2016      4 comments

So, I decided this morning that the one thing I really need to do for myself today was to get out of my office at lunch! It's not raining today, but not really nice enough to hang outside, so I went to the cafeteria across the street and grabbe... Read more

Day 19

Tuesday, January 19, 2016      1 comments

Wow, was the weather crazy this morning - pouring rain, big gusts of wind...what a relief that I'd already planned to do weights today, LOL! Nasty walking into work though - I have about a three-block walk from my garage to the building, and ev... Read more

Day 18: Mom's Bday

Monday, January 18, 2016      3 comments

Well, today would have been my mom's 79th birthday. Hard to believe she's been gone almost two years. I have one of her favorite quotes in my head today - "Life is what happens when you're making other plans." So true. Rough day yesterda... Read more
