Suck it up, Buttercup.
Yeah, yeah, I'm a whiner. Seriously, I had Oreos and potato chips for dinner last night. Thank goodness I can find the humor in it today.
So what's going well?

Winter Break = No Excuses for Missing Workouts
I like the feeling, at 1:00 in the afternoon, of my body recovering from a workout. Ahhh... I just finished 3 miles on the treadmill and 15 minutes of toning exercises, made a smart lunch, tracked everything, and here I am blogging and making a... Read more
Plan for the Night 12/9

A New Day - Day One
All positive thoughts here!
I can do this. Water. Track food. Breathe. Get some exercise.
A line from The Art of Fielding (paraphrased): She used to have toned arms and swim miles a day. Oh, well.

2. I have been making every excuse in the book not to exercise: Too tired, not enough time, TKD cl... Read more

Workout Options Brainstorm
I'm back at work (yea, 8th graders!) and while I love being with my teens, I was so exhausted after Day One that I couldn't work out. (To be fair, the glass of Merlot with dinner may have had an influence. But it was worth it!)
I can't let... Read more
On My Way
It occurred to me today that I've regained one of my good habits: exercise.
Two years ago, I would have said that I work out 5-6 days a week. That dropped to 3x...then 1x...then I became a couch-rider. Exercise seemed really hard -- and, h... Read more
Darn it, I'm Healthy...

For the first time, I actually wanted a health problem; it would have been such an irrefutable e... Read more
