Wonderful way to start a Monday, which is really a Wednesday …

well, I only have three days of work this week. So today is Wednesday for me, right? Anyway, had yoga this morning. We had a sub named Brian. (Oh, the teacher who has taken over the classes, Sarah, is really great.) Brian was really good, too. There were only two of us in class. He […]


It has been way too long

Wow, sorry that I haven’t updated in more than a month. Did a lot of traveling in November–Missouri to see Curt’s family and then New Orleans with a girlfriend on a kinda last-minute trip. Then it was Thanksgiving … I have been pretty good with keeping up with my working out even during hectic times. […]


Trying out new yoga instructors

So once again my Mon/Wed morning yoga classes are looking for a new instructor. We had Sally today. She was pretty good. Though sometimes she wouldn’t tell us what we should be doing. Next week Sarah. And the week after that someone else. I have only been going to morning yoga once a week lately […]


Trying to get back on track

I went to yoga this morning. It was a pretty good practice and I felt really good afterward. I have to say it was really super tough to get up this morning. But I did it! And I also attended a Weight Watchers at Work meeting today. So I feel accomplished in the world of […]


I kinda suck

I haven’t worked out since last Wednesday. And I have a ton of excuses. Well, I did take a yoga class Wednesday morning anticipating my flu shot that late morning. The nurse told me I shouldn’t work out or party until the weekend. My arm was still sore Thursday so no kickboxing. Friday Curt and […]


Step & Sculpt

I took a new class at the gym last night. New to the gym and new to me. I had taken step before and I just didn’t like it. It takes me time to learn a combo and before I have we are already moving onto the next one. But my friend Kim told me […]


Fit your workout into your schedule

Today is my birthday. So I am not going into work. And normally on Thursdays I go to kickboxing class after work. But not today. I will be eating sushi then. So since I am home this morning, I did a yoga workout through my digital cable. Exercise TV has a ton of options, from […]


It’s gonna be a tough food week

This past weekend was already a challenge in the food department with many activities planned. This week is going to pose many more challenges. (Jen had asked me a food question, which I will answer eventually that kinda goes along this subject.) Tonight my work is hosting a function for the home employees and remote […]


September=20 times

Well, I never did get to take that walk I wanted to take yesterday afternoon. Besides the fact that I was a total zombie I was so busy at work. But even with an altered schedule (being out of town even for a short weekend can throw me off) I still worked out 20 times […]


Good intentions

So I had every intention to go to my 7:15 a.m. yoga class this morning. I had my gym bag packed with my work clothes and had my yoga clothes layed out and ready to jump into when my alarm went off at 6:15. When it went off I thought, there is no way I […]
