I'm a wus on a mission
Saturday, March 05, 2011      1 comments

I'm trying something new: a SP Virtual 5K. I like having both the walking & jogging/running options. I'm a flabby mess right now, so I'm walking my way through 49 so I can run when I hit 50 next year. I've never 'run' (or even walked) th... Read more

A winsome life
Tuesday, January 11, 2011      1 comments

An odd thought popped into my head yesterday: the word "Winsome". Don't know how often you use the word, I only use it occassionally. I wouldn't describe myself as 'winsome'; amiable, friendly, cheerful - maybe; but 'winsome' isn't the top... Read more

Monday, January 03, 2011      6 comments

While exercising my priorities; i.e., using my treadmill first, then tackling morning chores, I remembered the value of treadmill walking - free form thinking - letting my mind wander to pass the time, daydreaming in other words. The wander... Read more

A new view for me: change something, anything. So: - Got a new haircut - Got a manicure - Bought a treadmill for home (and have been using it! woo-hoo!) - Emptied out the tired, old-me, clothes - only keeping things I actually wear - D... Read more
