I have to admit, I'm feeling *much* better now. I may still *look* like a lump, but I feel stupendous! It took a bit of doing to break the pattern of the last several months, but I am slowly getting back into the swing of the healthy lifest... Read more
Feeling like a lump
Tuesday, October 09, 2012      2 comments

Yep. It's been another couple of months since I got my bike and my Pace Gloves. Which should have been a couple of months of getting in some regular exercise and healthy eating. Sadly, I gave in to the usual: work overload. Which ... Read more

Serious acronym overload, hunh? Sorry - couldn't resist! So my friend thinks it's a case of TMTS (too much, too soon) as to my feet hurting after walking home the other day. I will admit that I do tend to jump right in, head first, et... Read more

So, I'd planned to bike to work yesterday, right? Well, I stayed playing on my computer until it was late enough that I decided to just take the streetcar instead. Wearing my fun new sandals. Wore them all day at work, again immensely... Read more

Did anyone know there's a whole "barefoot" trend in shoes? I didn't. Well, I'd seen the Vibram Five Finger shoes, but dismissed them as a fad - one that I'd love to try, but still a fad. My regular shoes (a few-months old pair of... Read more
Overuse ... and navel gazing

Did you know you can get an overuse injury within 2 short weeks? Well, DUH! That's what ALL the exercise blogs and fitness experts warn you about: doing too much too soon! So, there I was, with my brand-new bike, determined to mak... Read more

Yep. Me and my bike. Did I mention it's yellow? It actually is. There were other options, of course, but who wouldn't fall in love with a buttery yello... Read more
Instant Gratification
Monday, July 16, 2012      3 comments

That's pretty much my favourite thing - instant gratification. In all aspects of life. So it's not really surprising that I gain weight rather easily ... for me, gratification seems to come from eating, not from feeling virtuous about ... Read more

Yep. You got it. Another few months have passed, and it's now officially the second half of the year. The first half? It was great in many, *many* ways. Let's just say it might have been a little TOO great in some, hmm? ... Read more
FEBRUARY????? Really?

Sigh. Not just February, but almost Valentine's Day - which means to say almost half the month of February is over! That's almost 1/10th of the year GONE! Heh. Just after I wrote my last blog, I was visited by the world's worst co... Read more

That's pretty much it! Hope you're all having a fabulous start to 2012! I've just completed 5 weeks of Insanity. And am realising that THAT was the easy bit. This week, the workouts get TOUGH. Longer, for one: averaging an hour instea... Read more
Week 3 of Insanity: Complete

Busy again, so just a quick update here. I've managed to stick with the Insanity workouts for another whole week. Yay! That leaves just 6 weeks to go. Of course, the last time I tried Insanity, I only GOT to about day 2 of week 4 ... T... Read more
July to December - no change?

I have been off SP for ages now, mostly because of work pressures (12 hour days like everyone else), but also because I just moved into a new condo and have been procrasti... Read more
Prioritising me
Friday, July 15, 2011      3 comments

Yes, that is what I am trying to do these days. I did say "trying". That means I'm not there 100% yet. I am working on it. So far, it's meant paying attention to what I am doing. And you ask, "what exactly *is* that?" ... Read more

That's all they are, folks. Yes, I've been busy. "Too busy" to cook. "Too busy" to work out. And I have a long commute. None of that has stopped me from making the time to eat out a couple of times this week (actually si... Read more
