Walking for charity

Today I participated in a charity walk with work and for the MMRF. (There’s still time to donate if you are so inclined. Click here for my page. Thanks to those who have already donated.) Since I didn’t have time to go to yoga (and parking and driving into that part of the city can […]


Riding 100 miles and then some

My company recently launched a wellness program. We first started with biometric testing. Our results were input into a web portal. After that there was a wellness assessment in which I answered questions about my mental and physical health, fitness and exercise, work and personal situations, etc. From there my strengths were identified and areas […]


Eliminate holiday travel stress

  This time of year gets stressful. Many parties to attend. Travel to visit family or friends. Or family or friends travel to visit you. Shopping. Cooking. End of the year work projects to get complete. Curt and I are eliminating a lot of this time of year stress. We are staying put for both […]


Surviving travel as healthy as possible

Someone recently asked me for suggestions on how to healthily survive a 10-hour flight. My advice was not good. I told him that I survive international flights with booze and a sleeping pill. Seriously, here is my advice on how to survive an international flight or even a domestic flight: Stay hydrated. Drink lots of […]


Dealing with time change

Tomorrow very early (2 a.m.) we fall back. I hate falling back or springing forward. The time change completely wreaks havoc on my body–physically and mentally. You would think one hour wouldn’t be a big deal. But for some reason it is. (Being from Arizona I never dealt with time change until I first moved […]


Go Team Onyx!

At work I signed up for a virtual walk to raise funds for MMRF. My plan was to do the virtual walk via the couch. I went to an hour and half Vinyasa Yoga class and then Curt and I put in our garden. That is a lot of physical labor. Once done with all […]


Please sponsor my virtual walk, if you can

My company, Onyx Pharmaceuticals, has created a team to support the MMRF Race for Research. Check out my page by clicking right here. I signed up for the virtual walk, since I will be on vacation that day. But I assure you, there will be much walking in London, Paris and Amsterdam. If you can […]


I only I were a runner

When I first started working out almost three years ago I started walking. I walked at least three times a week for a month. Then I decided I needed to be a runner. Running is easy cardio and you can do it anywhere. You just need your tennies and preferably some workout clothes (which don’t […]


Walk on the boardwalk

Curt and I took a walk today to head out for lunch. (Oh, by the way, we are in San Diego for a few days for some relaxation.) Curt said it would take up about 15 minutes to get where we were going. (He walked it last night.) But I don’t walk as fast as […]


Thanksgiving morning walk

I had to pick up a few things at the grocery today. So I decided to walk. It was a nice, quiet walk. Just listening to my iPhone. The gym is closed today. And I figure when we get home this evening from my dad and Hilda’s I am not gonna feel like working out […]
