A scary sight at the gym
Friday, January 29, 2010      8 comments

I've been going to the gym almost every weekday this month. Weights, weights and more weights. It feels AWESOME! Interestingly, I've never felt intimidated at the gym. Yes, there are tiny gals who can lift much heavier than I can, but ther... Read more

Sunday, January 24, 2010      9 comments

You all know that I've not hula hooped in a long time - only once or twice since March last year. I've been doing tons of walking and, recently, a lot of free weights. Well, yesterday, I was going to have it be a sorta-rest day, with just s... Read more

I started my nice little 5-day routine yesterday. Decided to make a *little* extra effort - woke up at 4:30 so I could catch the 5:50 bus. Caught it in PLENTY of time, found that the streets were completely empty, so the bus got to the train qui... Read more

That seems to be becoming a pattern. One that I don't really like, but am too soft in the head to control. :) Yesterday morning I headed in to the gym, SURE I was going to have a fabulous workout. Guess what? I *did*. I did free weights (th... Read more

Today, I'll declare, was a *much* more successful day than yesterday. I got to the gym and got in a GREAT weight workout. Then I walked to work, all 3 miles of it, and managed that in just under 50 minutes (usually I walk slow enough that i... Read more

Remember my last blog about snow, snow, snow in To-ron-toh? Well, after that huge snowstorm, there has been very little fresh snow and temperatures have often been a few degrees above zero degrees Celsius. Which has meant that what little s... Read more

... on 2009's successes, that is! My personal top ten for 2009: 11. I still smile all the time. [The ups and downs haven't been ALL that hard, I guess!] 10. I sleep at least 8 hours a night. This is a 180-degree turnaround from th... Read more

Sunday, December 27, 2009      7 comments

One of my friends on SP wrote in a thread: "I'm setting aside the question of whether guilt is ever an appropriate response to food intake." This got me thinking. Yes, that's always a dangerous thing, as you've come to realise. I think... Read more
