Last week was crazy. I hope that this one is a little bit calmer. I was asked to help one of our executives design a slide for a presentation. There was a lot of back and forth with him and a lot of research on my part. This one slide took ... Read more

Good news on the trainer front! Yesterday I met with her for my fourth session. She started out with having me do the same set of exercises. When she asked me how that felt. I said "Very easy. It's been pretty easy all along." Well........... Read more

I had my second visit with the trainer. It is going slowly (no sweat LOL) but she says that she is watching form and adjusting. She doesn't have me do any heart-raising exercise between sets, which I don't like. The old trainer always includes ... Read more

OK. The title may be a bit dramatic but that's how I feel.... about the removal of the lovely hemlocks border. You see, the hemlocks belong to our neighbor and she decided to take them down to the tune of $10,000!!! There are about 20 on each si... Read more

Met with the new trainer last Wednesday. I think I'm going to like her. You know how they say you can't judge a book by its cover? I guess that was what I had been doing with the trainer. She's worked at the gym for a few years now but she is ... Read more
