Wednesday, June 15, 2011      6 comments

Weekends at the beach are a summer classic for most Americans. But not for me. I burn in about 15 minutes and have to be super careful about heat - I got heat stroke as a teenager and am therefore susceptible to new bouts of it. Also, and thi... Read more

Wednesday, May 25, 2011      10 comments

I admit it: I have emotional attachments to a lot of my clothes. Today is a particularly bittersweet day for me. One of my old standby camisoles, a dear friend, is on its last outing. It will go from the laundry to the "too big" box. While ... Read more
Scale Battle
Monday, May 16, 2011      9 comments

The scale and I are having a bit of a battle. Last week the scale told me I lost 1.6 pounds and I was happy; my hard work was finally paying off and I busted through my plateau. I was good all week on my nutrition and worked hard in the gym. ... Read more

Stability and Balance
Thursday, April 14, 2011      3 comments

Escape Plan
Monday, April 04, 2011      5 comments

Thursday, March 31, 2011      3 comments

Lately I have been having bad days and worse days. Monday was a worst day. I woke up from a literal nightmare about my job (it involved corpses, a sure sign that it's time to go) and ended my workday with a figurative nightmare in which I bare... Read more
