Or woman, if you will. I've been toiling at my ridiculously horribly organized job for four months now, and I'm so damned happy that I've only got three more months left. I swear, if it were much longer, I'd snap and kill someone (well, probably... Read more

Well, ladies and gents, I am happy to stop in to let you know I'm still around... seems like forever since the last post, and in fact, in digital terms, it has been. As I've offered several times, if you'd like to keep in closer touch with me, s... Read more
Art and Relaxation
Monday, April 16, 2012      4 comments

Boy, it was tough deciding on a title for this post! "The Art of Massage"? "Drawing a Blank"? You can tell I'm trying to update you on some loose ends that have been left precariously dangling in previous posts. Well then, let's dive right into ... Read more

I promised to share some of the creative pursuits I've been working on, so I'm uploading a couple of pics. The first is definitely unfinished. Right now, it's simply a background to which I will add... a tree. My tree drawing skills stink, so I'... Read more

Wow, I'm in the very last week of my first round of ChaLEAN Extreme!! I can say that my arms and shoulders are getting quite toned, and DH has commented on my back and that I generally feel tighter. My stubborn belly bulge is hanging on for dear... Read more
The Munchhausen Solution
Friday, April 06, 2012      4 comments

In March, one could observe an interesting phenomenon on SparkPeople. It seemed that a general lack of motivation had infected large numbers of previously dedicated fitness enthusiasts. A lot of my SP friends voiced concerns about "not feeling t... Read more

Thanks everyone for the kind wishes on my birthday! I don't think I've ever gotten that many congratulatory messages, um, EVER (counting Facebook, of course, hehe). It was a nice day that felt very busy, even though it wasn't, really. DH let me ... Read more
First Impressions: Tropical Strawberry Shakeology
Saturday, March 24, 2012      8 comments

They say you can only make a first impression once. In the case of Tropical Strawberry Shakeology, that might be a good thing, because my first impression of it was less than enthusiastic. First of all, as the name implies, it isn't pure strawbe... Read more

Friday, March 23, 2012      5 comments

According to the training schedule, today would have been a day off. I had a ton of energy, though, so I decided I would at least work out a little, anyway. As I had mentioned before, my version of CLX comes with a freebie workout from Turbo Jam... Read more

As much as I disliked Lean Circuit 2, I LOVE Lean Circuit 3!! Oh yeah, I'm SOOOO there!!!! This one's all chest and shoulders and core, with some (truly) negligible lower body work, but that means - I can lift HEA-VY! Well, heavi-er, in any case... Read more
ChaLEAN Extreme Lean Circuit 2 Initial and... Turbo Jam??
Monday, March 19, 2012      2 comments

Well, if you've followed my blog previously, you know that one of my biggest handicaps is an acute lack of balance. When it was really bad, there were times I could literally not walk straight sometimes. Things have improved a bit, with much pat... Read more

Saturday, March 17, 2012      4 comments

Well, peeps, I stand (or actually, sit) humbled before you. Today's workout seriously kicked my behind. I think that Lean Phase is going to be the hardest of the three, but certainly also some muscle tingling fun. We're back to combination ... Read more

That was one of the songs on Josh Groban's first album, and wow, was it a great one! If I could insert video here, I would, and dedicate to all of you who left so many kind comments on my last blog post. ... Read more
