Crazy past two weeks...

Thursday, April 28, 2016      4 comments

Well - I'm officially 40. :) So far, so good! My schedule has been off the rails lately. I've been on vacation... back and forth to NYC - twice! - and also took a little jaunt to the beach, as well. Crazy! I need a vacation from my vac... Read more

R.I.P., bluetooth headphones

Saturday, April 16, 2016      3 comments

My trusty bluetooth headphones - the ones I did several rounds of P90X with, the ones I wore during my entire summer training for a half-marathon - finally died this week. They just refuse to hold a charge. :( I've had them for 2.5 years.... Read more

Do YOU, boo!

So I went for a run last night - nothing insane, just Couch to 5k, week 1 - and I wore my old shoes. And by old shoes, I mean OLD. They're Adidas Supernova Cushion 6... and Adidas is currently on version 8 or 9 of this shoe, I think. So... Read more

Okay, so... today, my foot feels better. A tad bit stiff, maybe, but not the pain I was dealing with in the morning yesterday. Last night, I had a lot of time to myself to do some thinking. I was at the theatre, sewing more costumes for... Read more

Maybe this is a test of character.

Well, last night, I took my first run in a very long time. The run itself went great. It felt SO DAGGONE GOOD to be back out and running again, even though most of it was walking. I did Couch to 5k, Week 1, Day 1. Today, however, i... Read more

This weekend... not the greatest. Right on schedule, my period started, and it took all the energy out of me - and I mean ALL OF IT. No workouts, and although I didn't go completely off the rails with eating, it wasn't as great as it could hav... Read more

Not bad - not bad at all :)

So yesterday, I attempted plyo. It's the first time since last year... I have been, up until recently, under strict orders for no leapy-jumpy stuff while my foot does its thing. My foot felt good yesterday, so I attempted plyo - sometimes modi... Read more

Wilmington gets a bad rap. And not all of it is underserved - violence is at an all-time high with no end in sight. (Though I do take issue with Newsweek dubbing it "Murdertown, USA" - that's not helping matters.) The city government is in ch... Read more

Hanging in!

So I promised myself yesterday that even though I was in a poopy mood, I would do at least fifteen minutes of my planned kickboxing workout - and I ended up doing the whole hour, and feeling pretty good about it. I guess I know myself pretty we... Read more

Cold weather really robs me of my mojo. We're having a bit of a cold snap - March felt more like April, and April - at least at first - seems to feel more like March. We had snow flurries this morning, and it made me want to punch the sky. ... Read more

Well, my beloved, trusty heart rate monitor - the one I wore during P90X, the one I trained with for 5ks and the Beat the Blerch half marathon - finally crapped out. Replacing batteries did nothing, resetting it did nothing - it will just NOT p... Read more

I know that I must be entering the PMS Zone because just about everything is making me cry. I got my performance appraisals from my boss and my supervisor, and I'm happy to report that I got pretty great marks all around - so I expect my re... Read more

Coasting for the rest of the week :)

Boss is GONE until next week!! WOO HOO!!! This means I can get away from my desk a little more and walk. My foot is feeling pretty good, even after putting it through the paces yesterday with kickboxing - even so, I'm going to be conserva... Read more

Well, that explains a lot

I felt so crappy yesterday because it appears that I'm fighting something - and I'm thinking it's just a cold. I went to bed last night with aches, chills, and a sore throat, and I slept like a ROCK for a solid nine hours - which is very, very ... Read more
