Spring? Really?
Thursday, April 09, 2009      6 comments

Yes, really. At least, it felt like it! Today was a simply gorgeous day. Sunshine everywhere. Blue skies. Little cute puffy white clouds - almost an ad for Windows. So I decided to go for a walk. No jacket. A bit of sun-block (a bit i... Read more
One of those days ...

That's what today was. One of those days where you look back at it and wonder, "where did the day go?" because although you're wiped, you've got no real tangible results! BLC-9 officially wrapped up today with the final weigh-in. I've got t... Read more

Tuesday, April 07, 2009      14 comments

1. You can do *anything* you put your mind to doing. 2. NOTHING is as difficult as it looks before you start working to achieve it. 3. With a plan, the most DIFFICU... Read more
No exercise? Or LOTS of exercise?

So today was my first Sunday *here* at my brother's place. With all four of them at home, no commitments for the kids to head off to one class or another. Decided to go for a walk at 7:30 a.m. - kids both decided they wanna go. Checked the ... Read more

No, that's not just *any* random number. According to Wikipedia (I know, not exactly the greatest reference material), in 122 A.D., Hadrian ordered the wall now known as Hadrian's Wall to be built - 72 miles (115 kilometers) in length - in ... Read more
A positive?
Thursday, April 02, 2009      5 comments

Sheesh. Now *that* is a challenge - come up with something positive about myself 5 times a week??? Hmm. Lemme see: When I choose to, I can be extremely focused - to the point where I see nothing BUT the goal. That kind of focus can be ... Read more

An Update. And Another Update.
Thursday, March 26, 2009      1 comments

First update. The hot water is back. Yay. I've finally caught up on the cups of water for the day - got REALLY dehydrated waiting for hot water. Yeah. I *drink* hot water too, as hot as it gets, straight from the tap. Don't like the cold wa... Read more
In hot water.

Or rather, NO hot water. I like getting sweaty. I'm moving in 2 days. I'm busy packing, cleaning, the usual prep-work to leave one place and move to another. Also cranking out some good workouts. I also, strangely, like getting c... Read more
Why NOT to use the "Safety Collar"
Wednesday, March 25, 2009      9 comments

That thing. That so-called safety collar. Don't use it. Use a spotter instead. :) Seriously. Even though this device (and many other variants) are called "safety co... Read more

You might know (or have guessed) that I've been a shade on the depressed side lately. Not quite knowing what to do so shake myself out of it. It's gone on too long, and I've known that it HAS to end. Well, over the past two days, a few... Read more

Woohoooo! I can hardly believe it! After weeks of either bright day, but cold as heck, or just plain gloomy gray skies with temperatures hovering well below the freezing... Read more

No. That's not a picture of the cookies I made. But, given all the requests for the recipe, I did share the recipe on SP ... it's at recipes.sparkpeople.com/

Sigh. After doing really well on the calorie front all day, I wound up well under my calorie budget by the time dinner was done. By 10:30, I was mindlessly (note that word!) ... Read more
