Old habits die hard!
Friday, October 08, 2010      5 comments

I tried. Really. (Well, REALLY?) To eat clean. Or at least not to eat out. I did pretty well all of LAST week, but this week, I could tell that the motivation simply... Read more
Doing something different
Saturday, October 02, 2010      10 comments

Heh. No. Not doing a headstand myself (WAY too heavy). But I am turning my own perceptions upside down since about ten days ago. Earlier this week, on Monday, t... Read more
So far, so good
Saturday, September 25, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday was an insane day in *some* respects, but worked out pretty well in terms of calories. Okay, the only reason it did was that I simply was determined not to eat everything in the refrigerator. And believe me, I really wanted to, several... Read more
Free passes
Thursday, September 23, 2010      3 comments

When I think of free passes, I usually get all excited. Something for free has got to be better than paying for that same something, right? Not always true, though. How many times have I gone for the "free" deal and regretted not paying? (Hint: ... Read more
Lazy week ...
Sunday, September 12, 2010      0 comments

Yep. That's what I had, a really lazy week. Got in *some* walking most days. Nowhere near the 6 miles I've got each weekday all through summer, but still okay, a couple of miles a day. Went and watched a movie on Friday night! The whole mo... Read more
Wii Boxing kicked my butt!
Sunday, September 05, 2010      2 comments

Okay, that was LAST Sunday. I bought my nephew a small gift - a second nunchuk for the Wii. And then, of course, he wanted to actually use it! So he and I played a ha... Read more
New shoes!
Tuesday, August 31, 2010      6 comments

Yep! Finally got 'em. The gift certificate from work came to a nice little discount and I LOVE the new shoes. Asics, the GT 2150. After going through a va... Read more
Not much going on. Lots going on.

If you want to know how the new shoes are, you're going to have to wait another week - I didn't buy those shoes yet. :) Been busy at work. But Thursday, I did get in another 6.5 mile walk/jog/jiggle (woggle) thing. Mostly joggling tha... Read more
Excited
Saturday, August 21, 2010      5 comments

My team and I worked looooong hours a few weeks ago on a project that had really tight deadlines. And one of the managers in the office noticed and decided to reward all of us with get-what-you-want gift cards that can in turn be redeemed for gi... Read more
Enjoying summer!
Saturday, August 14, 2010      6 comments

Hot, hot, hot, hot, HOT. In case you hadn't guessed, Toronto has had a HOT summer. Hot means humid when you're talking about Toronto. Humid means you have a shower and dry off, and five minutes later you're pretty soggy again. Yep. Sweat. L... Read more
Side Effects
Saturday, July 31, 2010      10 comments

You've all seen those ads for medications, right? Where they go on for 2 minutes about how great some new medication is, and then quickly slip in the disclaimers? The ones that make you go, "HUH? Is this supposed to cure me or to kill me?" ... Read more
Quick recap ...
Tuesday, July 27, 2010      5 comments

It's been a while since I blogged. Nothing spectacular has been happening. It's summer, it's hot and muggy most days, and cold and rainy some days. Today was hot and muggy, but now it's cooled down. I've been working hard, reading a l... Read more
Annoyed!
Monday, July 12, 2010      6 comments

If you noticed, I've changed my username slightly. Not so much that people who know me as BigGirl208 will be stunned, but enough that those who just know the user name (HMPH!) will not be able to locate the user quite as easily. And why, yo... Read more
Tired
Monday, June 28, 2010      4 comments

That's pretty much all I have to say. :) It's been a long week for only having started yesterday! I've already walked some 11 miles and more ... in HOT, muggy weather. And yes, I'm drinking LOTS of water. Still, I'm tired. ... Read more
Earthquakes, thunderstorms, oh my!
Thursday, June 24, 2010      5 comments

Yep. We actually had an earthquake in Eastern Canada - way over in the Gatineau (Quebec) area, but it was a magnitude 5.0 earthquake, so we felt it all the way over here in Toronto, too! In fact, I hear it was even felt as far south as Clev... Read more
