Bring on 2014!

Geez – we are in the middle of quite the snow storm. I think it is worse in some places, too – which is crazy! Not to mention really cold. It was 0 degrees in the mid afternoon at the warmest part of the day. Nothing like starting the year off with a weather bang.


Hello 2013!!

Welcome to a fresh new year

We had a quiet New Year’s Eve. The family had gotten together on Sunday for a games and snacks and a New Year’s toast, so John and I spent a quiet night at home.

I did, however, get a chance to meet up with Dawn earlier in the […]

November Goals

Welcome to November – and Happy Day of the Dead! Or Days of the Dead as John pointed out, since technically it is 2 days. Of course, every day is day of the dead until coffee time!

Don’t you love this coffee break? I asked for permission to use this photo – if you […]

The New Year and January mission

A bright and hopefully shiny 2012 is here. The new year didn’t start off bright and shiny, though.

That was bizarre to see. Fog in January and no snow. You would think we were in the PNW.

I ended up pretty much not working on Monday. There was about 20 minutes of work and […]

December wrap up and yearly goals

Last day of the year and I forgot to do my goal wrap up yesterday. Ooops.

I had a few goals for December:

1. No weight gain over the holidays. Fail. I did gain weight this month.

2. Do some no added sugar days. I did a very little sugar days and a […]

June Wrap Up and mid-year check in

Wow – the last day of June. Sometimes it scares me how fast time goes by. I had a busy month! Time to see how I did on my monthly goals.

1. Enjoy turning 43! Done!

2. Go no TV for one week. We did this and it wasn’t bad at all! TV is actually […]

March goals

Lifting day! After the dreariness of yesterday, today’s bright sunshine was a welcome relief, even though it is still cold. I was up early, though, thanks to Ms. Pixie pushing on the door wanting her crack. So, I was at the gym earlier than usual.

Exercise Set/rep/weight Muscle worked Stiff-legged deadlift 3 sets of 10 […]

February Wrap Up and that’s a lot of fat!

Okay – March starts tomorrow and that really means spring is coming! You wouldn’t think so with the amount of snow we had since Friday. Here I am standing by a snow bank on the side of the house:

That would be about 4 feet high. Our bobsled chute:

It is very hard […]

February goals

It’s a comin’! The snow’s a comin’! I knew I would have a chance to get in my lifting workout before it really hit. It was just starting to get a little sloppy out when I left the house this morning.

Exercise Set/rep/weight Muscle worked Lying Leg Press 3 sets of 10 at 100# Lower […]

Last Hot 100 update and monthly wrap up

Happy New Year’s Eve!! It’s been a nice quiet day. Very little work to do, but there may be some more tonight.

Since it was going to be 40 degrees out, I decided an outdoor run would be nice to do today. That meant waiting until it actually got up to 40! So breakfast it […]
