Wednesday, December 25, 2013      15 comments

Wow. It's been almost three weeks since I've written anything in my blog. I won't go into the details, mostly boring stuff. Work, blah, blah, blah... car trouble, yadda, yadda, yadda, sick, yucky, yucky, yucky... WATERMELLEN gave a shout-ou... Read more

You must read this link. It totally summarized how I feel about getting outside and having fun while I get some exercise in as a bonus. For that matter, I feel the same way as I'm silently wishing bad things to happen to Lenny the Trainer as I p... Read more

13. True of false: I need to be pushed. Elaborate. Yes. I do need to be pushed. It helps if it is a disinterested third party (i.e., not my husband). If it is my husband, it doesn't matter what he does, it'll get me mad. Today's food ... Read more
