Knowledge junkie

I am in a bit of a reading frenzy right now. Work-work is getting back to normal full-time busy (versus the double-time busy it has been the last month) and I have more blocks of minutes available to  pursue my interests. Yesterday in my recap I mentioned intermittent fasting. Before yesterday, I had never heard…

My growing sense of entitlement

A dirty little secret has been brewing, and I have not yet discussed it openly on this blog. Well, until now, of course. I have a growing sense of entitlement. Yep, me, glitter-bombing unicorn in the lives of a few harbors feelings of deserving things. Nope, not talking about material stuff or a tiara and…

What influences us

I had my headphones on and was listening to music while doing the dreaded domestic choring. Whether it was allergies, not eating right, or simply working really, really hard, this morning's "what day is it?" adrenaline rush told me I needed a break from my routine. So I am playing hockey taking a rest day from…

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. While I am working with Dr. Spencer primarily for the nutrition aspect, he also provides a workout program for me. Since I discuss all things diet and…

Ordinary people

When I was leaving the office this evening our maintenance man was polishing or cleaning or buffing - something with a machine and big honking brush thing - the tile floors in the lobby. I greeted him as I do when our paths cross, and he turned off his machine and reached out to stop me.…

Training #46 – Heart and soul

Thursday, training with J. It was upper body sequence review day, which is appropriate because I did this recently (Friday or Saturday) and could not remember what the dumbbell chest fly looked like, and promptly forgot about it until today. Ah well. No harm done, because I have lots and lots of other choices with…

So it’s Saturday …

It has been a fairly quiet and quite hot around these parts this weekend. M took to higher, snowier ground to run today. That's my hon - up there trudging 20 miles in the snow for the sake of fitness. He says he was hot, too, despite the white stuff on the ground. As for…

Training #42 – Amazing Grace

Thursday morning and training with J. It was a super chill session, for which I am actually quite grateful. I mean, I could always speak up and say "it's been a long, hard week; let's take it easy," but I never do that. On the other hand, I probably don't really have to speak up…

Work is Godzilla in my life right now

For awhile there, I really thought the whole better health quest with its diet and exercise components would be the thing that took over and dismantled life as I knew it the way the giant, fire-breathing lizard used try to do to Tokyo in the old movies. Instead, I think diet and exercise have been…

Sunday ponderings

My weekend project is now concluded, written, wrapped up and ready for delivery. I feel good about it, although that will not stop me from obsessively rereading and checking my figures and conclusions in the morning. I have been in an almost obnoxiously cheerful, happy place of late and it is a very good thing.…
