Powerlifting Meet circa 2014 I might be afraid of sleep. Or afraid of losing control of my time I’m awake, or maybe I’m just a whacko and let my mind spin in circles. I didn’t sleep much last night and I committed to being at the gym by 6. So, of course my restless legs […]


I haven’t done a “proper” Crossfit workout since March. I’m going tomorrow. I may die. If you don’t hear from me in a couple of days – check around C Street Crossfit. I’ll probably be laying in a ditch nearby. I’ll just imagine I’m working out with Leo. That will help, right?

Back to Basics

This morning I was reading some old blog when I FIRST started blogging in 2006…yes, THAT long ago. I realized I liked what I wrote. It was basic and what I was going through. Then FaceBook stole me. Now, I’m trying so hard to come up with something deep, witty and poingnant that I […]

Journey Towards Joy: Body

And by tomorrow…I meant in a week. Ooops! So this brings me to how I wanted to start by saying…my work schedule has been very unpredictable. This is ok, but hard to plan things in advance. Sure does keep me on my toes and make me creative about scheduling laundry and working out and such. […]

Two things that may be killing your metabolism and fat loss.

I’ve noticed in my 40′s that my metabolism has slowed. And it wasn’t a gradual thing. It was like an all out sudden slam of the brakes. (Mammoth Lakes, Duck Pass Hike 2013) I had gained a little weight when I decided to power lift but, I just figured that went along with the style […]

There is hope.


Some days I feel old. Like, I know I’m really not, but dang it…it seems like I should know what I’m doing with my life. I have a new opportunity to branch out from my usual circle and broaden my reach. I’m excited and scared all at once. It’s kind of like a moment of […]



I’m healthy. As far as I know. I’ve been doing some version of Crossfit since 2008. I’m not gonna water it down, I miss the Crossfit of 2008. But, that’s not my point here. I’ve been trying some other fitness venues, just to change it up. I was asked today, “have you gotten hurt doing […]

I’m here. In my stretchy pants.

The holidays happened. It’s not like we have a choice whether December 25th comes. We can embrace it or ignore it or even some level in between. I embraced it. At least the gluttony was on level 11. I’m not sure where this post is going exactly but I will tell you this, I’m getting […]

Just put the pants on.

I had the opportunity to have a wonderful weekend away. I was with 40 women and we sang, talked, hiked, swam, had cocktails and simply had a lovely time. It was a a beautiful weekend, but then the end came. As we drove back home, I began to panic a bit. I left all my […]

You deserve it. I mean it.

Let’s talk about how you think of the things you do everyday and the way it makes you feel. First, I have a few questions. 1. Do you put off taking time to relax? I’m not talking about an afternoon at the spa. I’m talking maybe 10 minutes to sit quietly and think about who […]
