Happy Mardi Gras! We usually have a party, but did not this year. At first it was because we thought we would be in the middle of moving. Then it was close after vacation and I ripped up the kitchen counters, so no party. Oh well! Here is a shot from one of the [...]
Now that the house closing is delayed for what feels like forever, I need to rearrange things I kind of had mapped out. One of those was to join the gym after we moved and settled in. I think I will just do that after we get back from vacation next month and not wait. [...]
We had a good time at the play last night. It was a good production, although sometimes a bit hard to hear the dialogue. The Christmas carol singing was very good and I loved the staging! Good stuff. This was at Proctor’s Theater down in Schenectady. We had never been there before. Tons of stuff [...]
I was loving the AC at the gym this morning. Plus, there was a fan on near where I was lifting and I enjoyed the cool breeze as well. Gotta appreciate the little things in this heat!
Exercise Set/rep/weight 1. Plank with alternate arm/leg reach 2 sets of 10 each side 2. Complex: Deadlift, High [...]
The heat is back!
Doesn’t that picture just look hot?? I unplugged from the internet after dinner last night and didn’t get back on. That was a nice little break. I love the net, but there is the real world, you know? Plus there was froyo to be had with my mom!
I got [...]
It was gloriously cool this morning when I got up to go to the gym. Upper 50s! Too bad it won’t be sticking around too long, but it sure felt wonderful.
The gym was quiet again today. I like it that way in the mornings. Today was lighter weights higher reps. Only 3 more workouts [...]
Hope you all had a great 4th of July! We had a nice relaxing day. I actually ended up not having to work, which was a bonus, so we had a nice rest day. We watched another stage of the Tour de France last night! I was saying to John, what is it about men [...]
I was exhausted yesterday. You know those days where it is hard to keep your eyes open all day? That was me. I did get some good sleep. Woke up a little early to the neighbor’s dog barking constantly. I don’t know if they weren’t home or what, but shut up already! Good thing I [...]
Thank you all so much for your comments on my maintenance post! I actually realized that it was a week early – oops LOL! Not that it matters that much in the grand scheme of things.
There is always that concern in posting progress photos about being judged and that does happen. It’s always a [...]
You know how yesterday was supposed to be bagel day, but wasn’t? Well, John had said to me that he didn’t know if he could wait until Sunday, so we had a plan to get up and bike to Coffee Planet this morning (on Thursday). Normally I lift on Tues/Thurs mornings, so I figured I [...]
