Skating? Not so much!
Sunday, January 30, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday, I had plans to go skating mid-afternoon with a friend. She and I took lessons together, but I've had a ton more practice. Anyway, I bundled up and headed downtown (a 2 hour trip from home on public transit), met her at the ... Read more

Well, ALMOST a week. I went every day ... Sunday through Thursday - and I can definitely feel the improvement! I'm still very much a beginner at ice skating, but it's a fun new hobby, which means I will be motivated to do it a while longer,... Read more

Today, I didn't have a half-day at work. But I still wanted to skate. So I left home early. Out the door by 6, at the rink by 7:20 (never mind, I know I have a long commute). By the time I got the skates laced up, it was 7:25. ... Read more

Believe me, I don't want to. I hate the whole goal-setting process. At many levels, my brain just goes "Gaaaah!" at the thought of setting a goal and working to achieve it. I am the poster-child for contrarian. However. ... Read more

Wednesday, October 13, 2010      7 comments

Okay, at least once each weekday, I walk to or from the bus stop that will get me on or off the bus to the subway. Since I am usually hurrying in the morning, it takes less time on the way out than on the way back, somewhere between 18 and 25 mi... Read more
