I invite you to read my story and figure out what the best word is for the blank. I went to the gym (from the office) at lunch time today. As I'm changing, I realize I don't have my sportbra (even though I was sure I had it). Decision tim... Read more

Yes, it's gonna have to be for me. I'm not proud of the way I've conducted myself in the last month (or so). I wish I held myself to a higher standard concerning my calorie intake, rather than resigning myself to be complacent. I'm not happ... Read more

I'm taking a "Trust and Estates" course. It makes for long days - or at least it feels like it. Luckily, the instructor is entertaining and the course is only two days. Of course it's in another building so I'm away from my computer - totall... Read more

I used to have chronic back pain... I believe that when I'm ill, it will show up in the weakest parts of my body. So, I would definitely have back pain along with whatever other symptoms... During this cold/flu/infection, I have not had back... Read more

It feels like I've been sick for a long time, when in fact, it has only been days. I think it first started on Thursday with losing my voice and low energy but I went to work because we had a union dinner after work. (And I'm not sorry to say ... Read more

Okay, I know I'm stating the obvious BUT, this is a reminder to myself, and others who fall into this trap. For a while now, I've been meaning to shake up my exercise routine. I want to get back into using my kettlebells. For a number of mont... Read more

Warning: I'm gonna take a moment to brag about my progress... two years ago, I could hardly lift 8lb weights. I do 3 sets of 10 reps each. I started in a "private" area of the change room gym and progressively worked my way up to 10lb, 12lb, ... Read more

when I arrived at the gym at 11:40am. I would have gone earlier but I was stuck in a meeting. Obviously I'm not the only one who has favorite ellipticals (see my last post) because those were the only ones in use! So I decided to go on the r... Read more

Oh, the things I think about as I tread along in my cardio workout. I do love the elliptical - very easy on the knees. and it's so much better when it has the individual TV screen. At the gym near my work, I ignore 5 of the ellipticals - th... Read more
