I got (almost) nothing today

Kind of a low-key, uneventful for blog fodder day. I ran into another training tribe member this morning I have not seen in a few months. This was a rare Sunday gym visit for me, because I missed on Wednesday and am still relatively obsessive about my 6 days gym time schedule. But it was…

Training #54 – The good stuff

Thursday morning, training with J. New stuff going on with us, because I just this week began an odyssey of online diet and exercise coaching with Dr. Spencer Nadolsky.

M and I are flexible and willing to work with them whatever day they chose, so we are set. Now, what to make for dinner?…

The zombie apocalypse

Chatting with a friend today about the upcoming, predicted, must-plan-for, cannot-be-missed event of our lifetimes: the zombie apocalypse. Apparently she and her daughter received quite a chastisement from a cousin for being so cavalier as to be not preparing for this event. Oh the horrors! I am not above having a full pantry and freezers…
