Carb Hangover
Monday, July 01, 2013      5 comments

Sometimes I think I'm just being a prima donna and making up this little wheat/carb sensitivity thing to, I don't know, make myself feel special? Be high maintenance? Well, this hangover I have this morning is definitely not all in my head... Read more
Kickboxing No More
Wednesday, June 26, 2013      1 comments

After getting all psyched about kickboxing, and planning to buy a whole mess of classes from the instructor, I've been thwarted. So I signed up for his email list several weeks ago so I could stay on top of what was going on at the gym an... Read more

Challenge Part Deux
Monday, June 24, 2013      2 comments

This week is the last week of the June Challenge (since, you know, it's the last week of June). I did okay last week, but not great. I wound up never doing the 4th weekly workout because I ran out of time. Technically, I could have done it ye... Read more
A Little Worn Out - But Strong
Friday, June 21, 2013      3 comments

This morning I'm feeling a little worn out. Yesterday I swam 2200 meters (in a long course pool! Plus, meters are longer than yards so you should be impressed!), then last night I did 2 of the June Challenge workouts (because I can't do one t... Read more

Thursday, June 20, 2013      0 comments

The Week 2 results came out yesterday and I'm still in 2nd place with a total of 29 points! Deborah has shot ahead in 1st place with 32 points. 3rd place is only one point behind me so I need to be diligent this week. I was aiming for 7 d... Read more
And Now I Need A Nap

I knew that today would be a non-Challenge-compliant food day because I had to catch the early train to Boston for a meeting, and I like to get a scone at the train station cafe because eggs are smelly and not very train friendly. Today I g... Read more
June Challenge: Tied for Second Place!
Thursday, June 13, 2013      4 comments

For a couple of hours this morning, I thought I was tied for first place in the June Challenge, but then my friend Deborah (the one who roped me into the challenge) re-sent her scores in because they got lost somehow and she leaped to the front ... Read more
Pool Etiquette

There are signs all over the entrance to the Brown pool and at the end of each lane proclaiming, "Please Circle Swim. 6-10 Swimmers Per Lane." The lanes are divided into 3 fast lanes, 2 medium lanes, 2 slow lanes, and 1 water walking lane. Ea... Read more
June Challenge: Week 1 Complete!
Monday, June 10, 2013      3 comments

I came into work this morning to find that our network is down. We still have internet, but I can't actually do any work, so might as well post about Week 1 of the June Challenge. By way of an update, I did confirm with the organizer that ... Read more

I think I may need to modify some of the workouts for this June Challenge if I'm going to get through running a mile every week and still be able to walk when I'm not working out. I did Workout #2 last night, which included 5 rounds of 20 knee ... Read more
Challenge Progress
Wednesday, June 05, 2013      2 comments

I'm right in the thick of a working out extravaganza, and it feels pretty darn good. Monday morning I swam. Last night I did my timed 1-mile run for the June Challenge and did the first workout (burpees, planks, sit ups, etc.). This morning I... Read more
June Challenge
Monday, June 03, 2013      5 comments

A friend of mine emailed me yesterday to see if I wanted to get in on a challenge for the month of June that a friend of hers put together. A challenge? With points? Of course! So that's what I'm doing this month. Basically for the week... Read more
Active Vacation
Sunday, June 02, 2013      2 comments

Well we're back home and, frankly, kind of depressed about it. Oh well. I guess real life has to go on. The good news is, we're so used to hot and muggy weather that this mild heat wave Rhode Island is having feels like no big deal. Trip... Read more
