The Fair and Food

We went to the County Fair yesterday. My baby girl won 2nd prize for the dress she made! I am so proud of her. I know she wanted first, but the way they set up the youth categories any and all clothing was in the same category. So her original design dress was up with […]


Two goals I have: 1. In one year do 100 pushups with perfect form without stopping 2. By Christmas 2008 do 10 pull ups – easily.

The Prestige Review

We watched The Prestige last night and I was totally impressed. I had a desire to watch it when it came out but like a lot of other movies, I never have the chance so I just forget about it. Then, when I realized there was so much eye candy in it, my interest was […]

I figured 'me' out…for today

I was mulling over my “training” or lack thereof while laying in bed and not getting up to workout. I could blame it on my husband for tapping my lightly at 6:30 and whispering that he was going in to work late and I didn’t need to hurry off to the gym. Those words dipped […]

My Life: The Soundtrack

Workout success

I have taken three days off for one reason or another. I meant to take one, then my shoulder was still hurting and life got in the way. Then yesterday I just couldn’t seem to get there. So, three days of rest for my shoulder. I sucked down some creatine, which I haven’t taken in […]


I stole this from a thread on a website I visit. I like it. Please join in and post your thoughts to comments: 1) HAPPINESS…What type of fitness activity brings you happiness? Working out so hard that I want to cry, but don’t. 2) PLEASURE…What pleasurable food did you give up for better nutrition? Sweets…candy […]

The Prestige

#1 On my Netlfix. why did no one tell me it had Hugh Jackman AND Christian Bale. I will die and go to heaven. (Don’t tell me it isn’t a good movie. I won’t hear you.)

4 Minutes

To type a blog. Sorry. A little Madonna/JT reference. First, thanks for the congrats on my certification! I feel pretty darn good about it. To answer the question why… I found Cross Fit through a blog, not sure who it was now. They mentioned it and I looked it up. I was intrigued. I spent […]
