Yesterday after work I went to see my friend and hairdresser. She colored and trimmed my hair. I don't know why, but I love it when someone shampoo's my hair - and of course the feeling of looking good when I leave is wonderful. For some reas... Read more

Yesterday after work I got a good workout in at the Y, followed up by some time in the sauna and whirlpool. This morning I got up, walked a mile on the treadmill, took my shower and got ready for work. I really missed stepping on Mr Scale. I ... Read more

It has been below freezing for quite a few days now. Add in the wind and we get what us northerners call a windchill temp - which is what it FEELS like with the actual temp and the windfactor. I don't think those of you in the south talk about... Read more

Home from work today feeling rather yucky. Decided not to let that hold me back - not getting on the treadmill - don't have the energy. Doubt I will get in any sort of challenging cardio today. However, while resting on the couch watching... Read more
