In the wee hours of the morning

My latest routine is to have an alarm going off at 3:45 in the morning so I can be in the gym by 4:45. Yes, you read that right. In the morning. In the perfect world I have 75 minutes to get through a decent workout before work. Not going to even attempt to lie…

Well hello again!

It has been 15 months since I stepped away from blogging and this site. In that time, life has continued (obviously), but blogging on others sites has not been consistent or what I envisioned. I miss writing regularly, and I have missed writing this blog, this site. In some ways I miss my life as…

Better choices today

Immediately after bleeding my angry rage post yesterday, I was off for a visit with TM (my therapist, for newer readers unaware of my tribe of experts). Even in the midst of my own crazy, I understand when the walls have closed and boxed me in and how I need help getting out of a…

Training recaps

I seem to have mostly ironed out my technical difficulties with my better health quest blog. The first training recap has been posted on MakingProgressGettingFitter.blog. If you have been reading/following along with my exercise adventures, you can now find all things diet, exercise, and health related there.

Training #99 – Nothing’s gonna stop us now

Thursday morning, J is back from his holiday vacation, and it was our last training session for 2016. Going forward and starting on Monday, these and other exercise-related posts will begin appearing in my new endeavor - MakingProgressGettingFitter.com - going live on Saturday, December 31. Today was our final review day, appropriate since he is…

No matter; it's Thursday and even with trainer J's absence, it is kind of weird and difficult for me not to write something about my exercise excursions. To…

While trainer J is away …

clients tend to work harder? Or not - gym was looking and feeling pretty empty this morning, as if the rest of the tribe has already checked out for the holiday. I was texting good travel wishes with J at 4:20 this morning, because he had an early-early flight and I was up anyway getting ready to…

Training #98 – You make my dreams come true

I began writing this post on Monday as usual, only did not get it completed on my typical schedule. A last-minute decision to join my daughter-in-law and work friend at a new (to us) yoga studio resulted in my gym bag getting stolen when a staff member left the building without locking the front door. I was so upset by this…
