Still here

So completely uninspired to write. Apologies. I'll be back ....more

The busy-ness continues

My volunteer work is, at times, all-consuming. I honestly don't remember how I used to spend my free time. When I have...more

When last we met …

I think I was bragging about nailing 100+ miles in January.It's gonna take some serious walking to hit it in February. With three fewer days and a couple bad-weather days already, I've only managed 19 for the first week. No walking today, either, because I'll be in the car and on my butt in a meeting all day ....more

Nailed it!

Somewhere along the line last month I agreed to be part of a two-woman effort to log 2015 miles in 2015. And, of course, I'd previously set a 1200-mile personal goal to get my three-year Daily Mile total to 3500.Busting 100 miles per month would easily accomplish both goals, but hey. It's WINTER.HOWEVER: The combination of milder-than-normal temperatures (for the most part), the FitBit and a change in my attitude paid off nicely ....more

A public service announcement

I haven't written anything this week on purpose. Most blogs are, by their nature, all about the writer, whether it be day-to-day events or the writer's opinions about something or other.This week would have been awful for you to read and for me to write, because it was spent anticipating yesterday's date with my doctor. For a colonoscopy.Now that it's over – and I'm fine, perfectly fine, thankyouverymuch – I'm here to say if you're 50 or older, it's time to schedule one ....more

Better this morning. So far.

I really had to lay low yesterday. I know some people can lose their lunch (or, in my case, breakfast) and feel terrific – I'm not one of those people. When I throw up I feel uneasy and ill for a long time afterward.So I didn't walk, partly because of that and partly because it was just too freakin' cold! ...more

Here's something annoying

I hate when I'm really, really hungry and I make the effort to make a good breakfast and then 10 minutes later I'm feeling sick to my stomach and it all comes back up again.Especially when the dishwasher is broken.Bacon and eggs and nothing to show for it except, dirty dishes, a spattered stove AND a bathroom to clean up.That is all ....more

Lather, rinse repeat.

Soooooo, it's been a while. Again.And, yes, I've been busy, but here's the thing. I usually write early-early in the morning, when nothing is pressing and the day's agenda hasn't even been set.So busy isn't much of an excuse.The truth is, there hasn't been much to write about ....more

Even when I wear it …

Yes, I wore the FitBit today (and yesterday). Yesterday was great. I was glad to be home, I had some energy, I was looking forward to The Game ....more

FitBit FAIL!

So I left last Friday for Tennessee and realized more than two hours into my trip that I wasn't wearing my FitBit.I wasn't too worried. I remembered throwing a bunch of electronic gadgetry into my laptop bag and figured I'd find it there.Alas, I didn't. I kind of panicked – it sucks to think you've lost a hundred-dollar doodad less than two weeks after you got it – and called my husband.He turned the house upside down until I finally suggested checking the sleep t-shirt hanging on a hook in the bathroom ....more
