The Verdict on the Shoulder
Wednesday, April 09, 2014      4 comments

Well, swimming is going to have to go on the shelf for at least a month or so. I saw an orthopedic PA this morning and he said it's most likely a torn or inflamed labrum. I had no idea what that was until a couple of hours ago. Apparently it'... Read more
Getting Fit Part 2
Monday, April 07, 2014      5 comments

Well, I didn't win the entire March Knit and Get Fit challenge, but I did pretty well, and I won a prize (a fancy hank of yarn)! Here's what I most liked about this challenge. First, getting points for workouts means I actually made an effort ... Read more
Getting Fit
Thursday, March 06, 2014      3 comments

Unlike all the other times I don't post for almost a week, I'm actually doing really well this time. The Knit & Get Fit group is off and running and so far (4 days in), I'm killing it! Not to toot my own horn. But I did win a prize today ... Read more

So I'm not really working out like I should be, but I have done this over the last 3 days: ... Read more
Excuses - I Have Many
Thursday, February 06, 2014      4 comments

I went swimming Monday! Yes I did. Swim buddy Rebecca psyched me up via text on Sunday afternoon and Monday at 6:30 we were in the pool! The good thing about swimming in New England in February is that chances are, you'll get your own lan... Read more
Day 25 - Sick/Not Sick
Tuesday, January 28, 2014      2 comments

I'm really irritated at my body right now because it can't seem to make up its mind about whether it's going to get sick. For the past week and a half I've been waking up with a scratchy, pre-cold throat, that usually dissipates a little during... Read more
Day 21 - Reasons to Swim
Friday, January 24, 2014      3 comments

This is Day 21, right? I confess, I haven't been as stringent as I might have hoped with my diet so I can't really call this a Whole30*, if we're being technical. However, it's been a Whole Heck of A Lot Better Than the Preceding 30 Days. I kn... Read more
Day 12 - Bookish
Wednesday, January 15, 2014      3 comments

I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts on my lunch walk today* and it was all about resolutions and the panelists' success, or lack thereof (mainly lack thereof), with their 2013 resolutions. It occurred to me that for years my resoluti... Read more
Day 10 - Strength and Carbs
Monday, January 13, 2014      3 comments

I'm pleased that on the day I returned to strength training class after a very, very long absence, the teacher decided to tailor it just for me. Seriously, today was my ideal class. Lots of abs, some triceps and biceps, some quads and glutes. ... Read more
Day 7 - Back to the Gym
Friday, January 10, 2014      3 comments

That's right, I finally made it to the gym this morning, only 4 days after I originally planned. Not only that, but when I walked outside I realized it was snowing pretty hard. The snow had just started so the road was fairly slick, but by the... Read more

I love eggs. Sometimes I get tired of them, but generally speaking I eat them pretty reliably for breakfast almost every day. Just this morning I had 2 eggs scrambled in some butter with a couple ounces of leftover chicken breast and a bit of f... Read more
Day 4 - How It's Going
Tuesday, January 07, 2014      1 comments

It's going pretty okay actually. Not perfect. Yesterday I had a meeting after work that happens every month and sometimes lasts until past 9 PM and is usually very, very dull. So I ordered a Diet Coke as soon as I got there. I also ate some ... Read more
Obligatory Resolutions Post
Friday, January 03, 2014      2 comments

Like everyone else in the world, I'm making some resolutions for the new year. I'm usually pretty good with sticking to resolutions and challenges, at least in the short term. It helps to have goals and end points and rewards here and there so... Read more
