Vegas, baby!

For me Vegas means a lot of drinking and a lot of eating with just a little gambling (mostly penny slots as I don’t like to lose my money). Curt and I head to Vegas on Thursday night. Our friends Jen and Dave will join us Friday morning. Jen and I were talking about trying […]


2 daiquiris, 3 beers and a Bloody Mary

And that was just today. I spent the past three days in Tucson. When I arrived Friday night there was an eegee’s slushie drink waiting for me in the car. I can’t think of a better way to arrive in Tucson. Well, having my mom meet me at baggage claim was pretty awesome, too. When […]


Back at that spin

After about a week and a half I went back to spin today. The class was tough. But it was good to be there. I could only stay for spin (no abs/core or body conditioning) since I was heading to a baseball game with Curt, my grandpa and my dad. Over the past work week […]


Time at the gym … not happening

The past few weeks I have struggled to get to the gym–but I still managed to work out four times a week. This week is looking like … 0. I had every intention to go to yesterday’s noon spin class. Then an unexpected meeting came up. I have every intention of trying the noon Zumba […]


2 pounds of weekend weight gain

Curt and I were in Missouri over the weekend visiting his parents. On Thursday, the day before we left town, I weighed in. And I weighed in today–day after we came back. I gained 2 pounds. Musta been the fried shrimp dinner and beers at the Ground Round in St. Joe; or fried tenderloin sandwiches; […]


Oh, so close to goal weight

I normally weigh in on Mondays, which I did last Monday and was, I believe, 2.4 pounds from my goal weight–on track with losing weight. I decided to weigh in on Thursday–right before heading to Missouri to visit the in-laws (eating home cooked food and, of course, Midwestern food). Really, I was curious how much […]


Another bag of baby carrots

I did my weekly weigh-in today and dropped another 2 pounds. I am really proud of how well I am doing. It isn’t hard to lose–you just need the knowledge and I do have to say a little will power. I need to be back to a reasonable weight before heading to Europe in about […]


Exercise room?

We are in Napa right now … enjoying a relaxing weekend. Last night I went down into the vending area to get some ice. I noticed right next to the ice machine was a door with a sign that said Exercise Room. I peeked in there. It was dark and small, but there were at […]


Switching it up

I couldn’t attend my normal Wednesday morning yoga class today because I attended a CPR certification class and had to be at work a little earlier to be there on time for the start of the class. So I went to the 6:30 p.m. spin class after work. This is a weird week for me […]


Lots of walking

While in Massachusetts I walked, a lot. Curt stayed in Wellesley for his training at the Babson College Conference Center. Apparently they had a nice fitness center, which I never visited. But while in Boston we walked a lot. We had a car–but just left it in the garage. We did a decent amount of […]
