Sometimes I just feel tough. I want to swagger and spit and, seriously, I wish I was a guy so that I could "adjust" myself... that's how tough I feel. After our initial interview meeting, and the fitness test, and then the tour of the gym... Read more
The importance of Softening into Support

I bought myself a wonderful gift this past weekend. It is a reward for all the effort that I’ve put in thus far in my year of intentional movement. It is a $20 luxury that I’ve never before allowed myself to indulge in. But much more than tha... Read more
Longest. Ride. Ever. (& Fitness Test)

I rode 22.77 miles this morning! And honestly, I am pretty sure I could have gone much farther but man-of-my-dreams had a bad case of sore-butt. I, on the other hand, have the benefit of an extra fluffy derrière to keep me comfy. We went up t... Read more

I love “beginnings” so I look for them EVERYWHERE. Grocery shopping is the beginning of all the healthy cooking I am going to do this week. The first of the year, the first of the month, even the first of the week gives me a chance to pl... Read more

Short, short blog.... went to the movies (The Last Airbender) & ate too much popcorn (eh, I go to the movies twice a year, I completely expected to eat too much popcorn and am fine with it). After a day of pouring rain and a fabulous, lon... Read more

a day off.... better yet, this is the first of two days off in a row! I haven't had two in a row in a long time. Was going to go on a distance record breaking crack-of-dawn bike ride but man-of-my-dreams wanted to go also so we didn't lea... Read more

I was about 9 miles into my 13 mile morning bike ride... oddly, I was with two others - man-of-my-dreams and my new friend Kristen. This was the first time I had shared my crack-of-dawn ride before so it was a fun and chatty ride. We were rig... Read more

My June 1 blog was the first time I set up a Month Goal so, being that it is the last day of June, it is time to revisit them. If you are not going to compare "what I want to do" to "what I did" why have goals? The following are cut & pasted ... Read more

Just a short note.... woke up this morning and had no idea what time it was. The power went off yesterday and I completely spaced re-setting my clock. But the sun was up, and not just a beam or two but fully up. Soft morning light filled my... Read more
Happy Healthy & Hopeful Monday!
Monday, June 28, 2010      8 comments

It is Monday. I am weary of self-examination and path decision. I have decided to back-burner any sort of huge life choices today and let them incubate somewhere in the depths of my subconscious. I just weighed myself.... (ouch) Somewh... Read more
