Tides

Emotionally, feeling the bounce toward my typical push-pull life balance. Gaining perspective doesn't happen in a vacuum with all my sadness and grief under lockdown. Unfortunately grief is a process and there are no shortcuts. Tuesday mornings I have a standing 5:30 conference call with an east coast client. It is typically an energetic phone…

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…

Rocks, cars, year-end brain dump

It's New Year's Eve, and I actually feel on the verge of feeling crappy. I know that sounds sort of vague and mysterious, but I have felt "off" since last night with a stomach ache that is not going away yet not getting worse. Bad food was my first choice, because M and I ate a…

Training #97 – Walk this way

Thursday morning, training with J, and the doomsday vacation countdown clock continues. One more session before J leaves on his vacation, and then one more after he returns and before the end of the year. For someone who does not watch a lot numbers in  fitness-related things, I am acutely aware of how many sessions…

Training #83 – The heart of the matter

Thursday morning, training with J. Big fun happens on training days, and today was no exception. I spoke yesterday about my clumsiness and not having any sort of falls, tumbles, cuts, or scrapes recently. I also voiced concern about speaking of my lack of mishaps and how it has tendency to jinx me. Sure enough,…

Confession: I did not get up at 3:45 this morning and was not at the gym by 5 a.m. Instead, I lay in bed and looked at my phone at 3:58, 4:16, and finally at 4:30 and decided exercise this morning was not my priority. Sleep was my priority. So I set a new alarm for 7…

Training #27 – Faithfully

Monday morning, training with J. And despite my nightmares and concerns about being late for our appointment, I got to the gym with plenty of time to warm up and prepared for our session. And I know I say this all the freaking time, but it was glorious. For someone who initially thought an 8…

80 days of summer – weeks #8 and #9

On Friday, June 12, I posted my 80 days of summer to-do/goal list and committed to updating each week. It was a wild ride last week, but I did make some progress. Complete 1,000,000 steps on activity trackers. ON TRACK. For the 14 day period of Monday to Sunday, total steps between my treadmill desk steps and my…
