If every week is like last week, 2010 will be fantastic!
Wow, what a great year so far!
First, the For Dummies book, "Service Chain Optimization for Dummies" was released (http://www.clicksoftware.com/

Helloooo 2010, you sexy year you!
2010...what a great year it'll be. I even like saying it: 20-10.
The theme for 2010: be healthier, happier and wiser. Not just for myself, but for the world. I can't wait to encourage my friends, colleagues, friends, and strangers to a... Read more
It'll take how long???
Oops, I did it again. I procrastinated on scheduling Spring tune ups and now everyone is busy. My b/f and I brought our bicycles into our local bike shop and he'll have them ready for us...in almost 2 weeks from now! What???
Can't wait... Read more
Day 3 - Motivating a Friend
Woohoo! Today I got a friend excited for fitness.
AW (name withheld) and I walk our dogs together in the morning. We've only been friends for a couple months now, but she strikes me as the active, outdoorsy type. Today she talked about h... Read more
Day 2 - Looked up "idiot" in the dictionary
...and saw a picture of myself. (Note that I don't really believe I'm an idiot. Just thought the following mistake was funny.)
I'm following the 12-week workout guide by Jillian Michaels (kick ass instructor on Biggest Loser) in her book,... Read more
...but that's okay. At the beginning of November I knew the rest of the year would be crazy, so I was ready for a new day 1 in January. I'm now back from FL and am ready to go.
Today I'm focusing on water consumption, planning my meals fo... Read more
Almost 2 months since the last blog entry?!?
Yes, that's about the time I started drifting and got too wrapped up in work. Thank goodness Christmas is around the block. After that my retail life will be close to an end and life can return to normal. Two of my g/f's are starting to talk ... Read more
Being sick sucks
Every Fall it happens: I get sick.
Last Thursday I hosted a little pumpkin carving party and thought I had terrible allergies during the party. The next morning I realized I was sick. Running nose, clogged ears, sore eyes, sore throat, low... Read more
It's cloudy today. ((sigh)) I didn't feel like working out this morning. This was partly b/c of the weather and partly b/c my favorite gym buddy is in CA visiting family. Knowing someone isn't at the gym waiting for me results in hitting the ... Read more
Am I brave enough?
As an entrepreneur, I'm constantly taking (calculated) risks. A lot keeps me up each night and last night was no different. Last night's thought? Am I brave enough to lease a cart at the mall for Nov/Dec to test my products and consider openi... Read more
Bike is to Lab as Rabbit is to Greyhound
My boyfriend Brian helped me burn my dog Tailor's energy last night. I threw on my rollerblades, Tailor did circles until I got up, and Brian prepped his bicycle. This was Tailor's 1st close encounter with a bicycle so the first thing he did w... Read more
Need more time to log SparkPoints
My goal this month was to be one of the top 3 on the Boston Sparkers SparkTeam leaderboard. However, I had a week long vacation and just haven't had time to catch up with logging points. Ugh! So I definitely won't meet my goal this week, but ... Read more
3 Girls are better than 1
This is great. 2 of my girlfriends came to my gym yesterday and today. It's turning into a regular party! Yesterday our newest addition took us through some pilates and then an aerobics instructor talked us into trying Zumba. This morning we... Read more
It's more fun with friends
Over the last couple of months I've tried to get different friends to join my gym, but everyone has had an excuse. Luckily I found a chump...errr...a friend to go.
Last Friday we went to the gym and really enjoyed it. I've been going to t... Read more
My Dog is Amazing!
Others may not think he's amazing, but I sure do! This morning was our 3rd attempt at rollerblading and he was almost perfect. He either jogged by my side or slightly behind me, didn't try to nip at my butt (this was his favorite day1 trick), ... Read more
