Training #52 – No place that far

Thursday morning, training with J. Hard to believe, but today marks 1 year exactly since our initial consultation. It seems so much longer, like dog years longer. And I truly do mean that in the nicest, most celebratory way possible. In fact, I looked back through the archives to see if I wrote anything about…

Health, wellness, and the randomness of today

It is lunch time for me and I realize not a single thought has crossed my mind all morning about what to talk about today. Typically I have several topics weaving and dodging for position, to see which flows from my brain to my fingertips to share here.┬áNot today, though. I implemented my new earlier…

Training #51 – Breakaway

Monday morning and training with J. Mondays are always hold a bit of surprise potential, because the appointment before mine can be a bit hit-and-miss. Her appointment begins at 5:15, so technically I should be 6:15, but she prefers to end by 6 so my time begins at 6, then there is someone immediately after…

Food hungover :(

Spent a lovely evening with my daughter C last night. M was off at the big ultra marathon race, assisting the crews of a couple of friends running while also watching the race and socializing. A was off at his cousin's wedding. Since C just started her job and was in training/transition, she could not…

Back-up plans

Yesterday was a relatively low-key Friday, and in various ways, humbling for me. This is what happens when old friends stay overnight and other friends remind me of days gone by when I was a very different and evolving person. Tripped over a stick last night in the back yard and fell flat. Nothing new,…

Exercise love affair

Wednesday I had conversations with 2 different friends about diet, exercise, and my better health quest in general. You know, the stuff I post about ad nauseam here. Friend Elyse, who recently underwent weight loss surgery is having a difficult time motivating herself off the couch and doing the walking her surgeon and obesity doctor…

Training #50 – Fly me to the moon

Thursday and training with J, and it was so much fun. I mean, every session is a lot of fun, but some are more intense and serious fun, some are just go-me! kind of fun, and some are just "ah ha!" moments kind of fun. Today was a bit of all that, with the added…

Alarm bells ringing

When I got home from the gym this morning my phone was in my gym bag in the back seat and our alarm was set and could not be deactivated before the alarm went off. I ran into the house and was at the keypad with plenty of time to enter the disarming code, except…

My week as a pseudo-vegetarian

I have always loved a good dictionary, and once I learned what one was and how to use it, I love a thesaurus. The love affair has only been enhanced since such tools became available online, so much more portable than even the paperback versions I carried around with me in my first attempts at…
