Tinkering under the blog hood

Chatting with fab trainer J this morning, I verbalized a new epiphany about blogging: it keeps me focused and on track with my objectives. While we were primarily discussing my blog on the better health quest (makingprogressgettingfitter.blog), it also applies to this personal blog as well. Small cakes in the epiphany universe, but through the…

Choices, stressors, negative vibes

Today, I had only one positive thing to say to anyone thus far. Meeting my friend K at the gym tonight, so that will change. She is doing really well with her barbell training and it's inspiring and exciting to witness. But for now, I'm a squatter in the negative neighborhood and feeling justified in…

This, that, the other thing(s)

Kind of mish-mash post of things I have been meaning to write about and just have not had time to write and publish. Decluttering Efforts Continue Time just slips right by me these days. I have had a glorious 3 days working on my house, the various storage spaces, and yard, yet it seems like…

Fatigue

Fatigue has been a recurring theme in my life of late. By unintentional design, character flaw (inability to say no when necessary), and frequently by choice, I have become overwhelmed and overloaded with work. The inability, or more accurate: stubborn unwillingness, to admit there is a problem and that I am not superwoman who can…

Training recaps

If you have been reading/following along with my exercise adventures, you can now find all things diet, exercise, and health related there.

Welcome 2017

When discussing the weather, everything is relative to what you know, what you are accustomed to enjoying or enduring. Growing up in northern California, anything below 50 degrees feels wintery to me. Today was particularly wintery, as there was quite a bit of moisture in the air, the wind was blowing, and I was outside…

Training #96 – What a wonderful world

Monday morning, training with J, and the doomsday clock of 2016 continues its toll. Okay, not really. Thursday, next Monday, and then J is leaving for vacation for a week. He is visiting family in a much colder place, and I know he will be returning all revitalized and happy to be back at work…

Being investment grade

Just a quick thought tonight from a couple of recent quick interactions. I was chatting with a friend tonight about a dating/relationship problem she's coping with and working through right now. It's not terribly or unusually complicated, but she suffers from the same overthinking affliction and was torn between overthinking or overreacting to an evolving…
