Better today ...
Well, better is obviously relative, so let's not push it. :)
But yeah, I'm not beating myself up over the gain quite as much - instead, I'm doing something about it. Got in a good hooping and dancing session yesterday, a tiny little gym wor... Read more
Gaining weight puts me in a lousy mood!
This past week, I decided to try NOT weighing myself every day (yeah, dumb idea!). So I weighed in on Friday, Monday, and now this morning. And every single one of those weigh-ins said the same thing - GAIN, gain, GAIN. Grrr.

The 100-pushups Challenge

Dress sizes revisited
Okay, I'm a greedy little piggy.
No, I didn't pig out. But I went to a different branch of Winners today. One where they had pretty cocktail dresses. :)
And I tried them on.
Several in size 14, two variants of a Calvin Klein dres... Read more
Dress Sizes ...
I've not tried on clothes in a LONG time - I think the last time was a couple of years ago, when I went shopping for some interview-type shirts.

Who *are* you? What do *you* want?
Anyone who's watched Babylon-5 knows that these two questions make up some kind of backbone to the entire show. Over and over again, these two questions are posed to our prot... Read more
Chips, chips, more chips!
Okay, I stay FAR away from chips on a normal basis.
But a couple of days ago, I went grocery shopping, and for some reason, I walked DOWN the chip aisle, instead of avoi... Read more
The Tabata Protocol
What's that, you say? Good question. Some of you know that one of my recent favourite workouts has been one I found on YouTube, called "The World's Fastest Workout Video" It'... Read more
Hula Hooping - Yes, Again!
Never saw a hula hoop as a kid (but I did _read_ about them - I read about *everything* as a child, and still do ...).
Grew up (so they thought) and moved to Canada. Never saw a hula hoop here. Moved to the States - didn't see one there for... Read more
When life hands you a lemon ...
... run away.
[Yes, that's the Golden Gate Bridge. No, that's not me. Yes, I've run (well, walked and jogged) the SF Marathon. No, I didn't make a great time. :) And, um... Read more
No more PopTarts!
No, I've not eaten any.
I just realised that having that poptart as my profile pic wasn't really motivating me at all.
So I went and found some more eye-candy.
Yep, that works better for me! :)

I'm a Terrible, Terrifying PopTart!
Well, in a manner of speaking. The Outlaws have broken up into smaller teams for this week's intra-team "weekend" challenge (well, the weekend i... Read more

It's all in your head - really!
You've heard that phrase just as often as I have. I've heard it before, there have been times I've actually trusted it and it's worked great. But, as often as not, I've wound ... Read more
