First Time Treadmill
Thursday, June 23, 2016      2 comments

I ran on the treadmill for the first time (well at least the first time I can remember). I ran 2 miles in 29:25. Which I don't think is so bad for my first time ever. But it did kick my rump-roast. I left the gym with one of thos... Read more
Watched too much Burn Notice and now I'm looking down the barrel of a gun (sort of)
Wednesday, June 22, 2016      3 comments

I've been on a Burn Notice kick, as has my friend. Now she thinks we can run a half marathon in October. I don't run. I use an elliptical, I swim, I bike, I hike, I walk, I lift weights, but I don't run. But perhaps it's time to ... Read more
San Diego and back.
Wednesday, June 22, 2016      3 comments

I spent 10 days in San Diego. I swam in the ocean, kayaked, hiked, and walked a lot. The weather was sometimes chilly, but Beautiful. It made me want to be outside as much as possible. Even when I was home, I still wanted to leav... Read more

I'm up in weight, but down in body fat. I'm also getting ready to spend a week in San Diego, dog setting. My brother and sister-in-law are going to Europe, and I will be watching their place and caring for their pets while they are... Read more
Is sugar a poison?
Thursday, June 02, 2016      7 comments

A few weeks ago I watched an interesting documentary on the food during the rule of the Tudors. Apparently, it was around the rule of Elizabeth I that sugar was introduced to and becoming very popular in England and Europe. But what was in... Read more
Downside of Up

I was hiking my "favorite" hill, and I was passing people who were much slimmer than I, much "hotter" and it gave me a real ego boost. I was thinking that, there really is a difference between "Slim" and "Strong" and "Hot" and "Fit". But l... Read more

My office is doing some renovating. Today, they were laying tile in the kitchen/break room. The smell of the glue gave me a headache and left me feeling a little nauseated and tired. By lunch time I knew I needed to get out of the offi... Read more

I just kicked the heck out of my rump-roast, OMG; and this from someone who doesn't often use OMG, but OMG. I biked to work, then after work I biked half an hour to the Hill, I spent a hour hiking that crazy strenuous hill, then I biked ... Read more
The Cold Hard Truth
Saturday, May 07, 2016      2 comments

I have been lying to myself for a while. I tell myself, "Hey, I hike the hill 2-3 times a week! That hill is really hard, I'm soaked in sweat,gasping for breath, and feeling a little sick when I reach the top. That's enough." I've been t... Read more

The only thing more satisfying then watching a little old lady in neon sneakers power past a young chiseled hard-body, is powering past him and beating him to the top of the hill myself. ... Read more

Very little sleep, a roommate who melted down so far over a poor test score that she had to be held at a "therapy center" for the afternoon, and oh yeah, a stray who snuck into my apartment gave my cats fleas. What can I say, it's a Tuesd... Read more
Why are complements embarrassing?

I was walking through the hallway at work today, and a woman, I don't really know her, she works in my building, stopped to tell me how impressed she was with my fitness. She told me I was looking fabulous and that she'd definitely noticed ... Read more

It's a tough road trying to find motivation when you simply don't have it. Last night I finally managed to force myself to go hike the hill here in town. It's 3 miles round trip, but it's incredibly steep and hard to climb. My plan is t... Read more

That mysterious force, that sweeps across one's life, bringing with it energy, focus, and drive. It makes the path seem so clear and the goal so easily obtainable. It's filled with confidence and purpose. However, that force is not someth... Read more
