I've had too much to think.
Friday, May 27, 2016      2 comments

Still hanging in. I'm in the process of gathering my thoughts because my friend Neil took notice that I've not been myself and asked me what's wrong. The fact that he noticed this is remarkable, because - for better or worse - I am... Read more
Treading water

So I've been taking some time to myself lately. I still check in every day just to give myself a semblance of routine and not go completely off the rails... but I am having an extremely difficult time of late. I think I'm battling a bout o... Read more
Crazy past two weeks...

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
Regrouping.

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!
Wednesday, April 06, 2016      2 comments

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
THE COLD
Tuesday, April 05, 2016      1 comments

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
