Weird and wonderful!
Thursday, December 24, 2009      5 comments

Just the way I like it! Yay. :) Today, that is. It was weird. It was wonderful. It was plain ol' FUN. This morning Toronto was under a storm watch. Again. Normal for this time of year. I had an interesting night - was in bed by 8:... Read more
Survived the holiday party
Sunday, December 20, 2009      11 comments

So ... the dreaded work holiday party is now behind me. I'd been wondering why I overate all of last week (truly atrocious calorie counts and nutrition info, trust me - or go look at my tracker!) - and finally, now that the party is over, it san... Read more

No, not like in a phone being hung up. A disconnect as in something that doesn't add up. I've been eating a LOT the past couple of weeks, pretty much since I started lifting weights again. It's not that I'm actually physically hungry. It's ... Read more
Angst and drama - part 2!
Saturday, December 12, 2009      6 comments

Well, the title of the post yesterday was very much tongue-in-cheek. You know how sometimes you say something and the very next moment it seems like that exact thing is happening? Well, that was today. I should have saved up yesterday's ti... Read more
Fear. Angst. Drama.

Hah. Got your attention, didn't I? :) Sorry. I did that *just* to see if you'd notice. :) I love to blog. You guys all know that. But sometimes I wonder why I do it. Is it because I'm such a narcissist that I have to put my though... Read more
Snow day!
Friday, December 11, 2009      6 comments

Okay, so the cars on my street aren't *quite* that old. But there was about that much snow on the ground when I woke up yesterday! It was pretty as a picture, not a footprint... Read more

Really. Seriously. Woooohoooo! This morning was exactly one week after I started with the free weights again. Well, not only has there been NO ongoing soreness other than last Tuesday (DOMS from Monday's workout), but I've actually be... Read more
Going back to the gym
Friday, December 04, 2009      9 comments

The GYM! Really! Yay! Yep. After three and a half years of not belonging to a "real" gym (my condo building had a mini-gym, but no Olympic barbell and squat cage!), I finally, a couple of weeks ago, signed up at the gym where my compan... Read more
30 days of writing dangerously!

If you've noticed, I've been more-than-usually absent from my favourite haunts on SP. And if you noticed my profile pic, you knew exactly why. Or maybe not. November was NaNoWriMo - that's National Novel Writing Month, for those who're not ... Read more
Meeting Mel!
Saturday, November 07, 2009      7 comments

MAN! I was excited. I was a LOT intimidated, but *very* thrilled. Mel actually wanted to meet up. Now Mel's not your average gal-you-meet-at-work. This woman is a Masters' swimmer. That is to say, one of the creme de la creme in Canada's s... Read more
Reading Martha Beck
Friday, November 06, 2009      5 comments

That's what I've been doing. We'd been having a lively discussion on diet books over on one of my teams, and this one kept coming up: The Four Day Win, by Martha Beck. Well, Judith S. Beck's "The Diet Solution" was on my waiting list, so I just ... Read more

No. I'm not talking about a snack food. I'm talking about those "feeling slender" moments. The ones that happen randomly. Like when you go put on a sleeveless blouse and realise that the batwings, while big and out there, are a LOT sma... Read more
Who's that woman?
Saturday, October 17, 2009      24 comments

Yesterday, I was actually downtown at lunch time. It's been about six months since THAT's happened - I just haven't made the effort, even though I really love downtown Toronto. Anyway, as I said, it was lunch time. Which means, I was hungry... Read more

Okay, it's time to toot my own horn. You all know I've been doing lots of walking and very little else for the past 4 months, except for playing with the Wii Fit the past few days. I walk faster now than I used to, but that's pretty much al... Read more
Wii Fit Plus ... still loving it!
Tuesday, October 13, 2009      5 comments

So today was Day 4. Okay, really Day 3 - I missed a day in between. :) I'm slowly experimenting with all the games and the different types of training modules. I am not sure I have any favourites yet. I mostly seem to "play" the Balance gam... Read more
