I haven't blogged for the past couple of weeks because my evenings have been tied up with drama practices. Just about every night has been practice from 6:30 til 9pm. I've managed to squeeze a little exercise in there, but not enough. Today... Read more

Since getting my beloved Mr. Foo, I've hardly been doing any toning and strength exercises. I just hate sticking him alone in the kitchen behind a baby gate, while I try to workout in the livingroom. He starts to whimper because he wants to ... Read more

Since my best walking buddy, my sis, broke her foot, I haven't been on any real calorie burning walks. I've just had trouble motivating myself to get up and get out there early enough to avoid the heat when I know I'll be walking alone. I hav... Read more

Tonight my daughter and I harnessed up Mr. Foo and set out on a little walk. He isn't use to being on leash, so for a little bit at the beginning he would try to wander across behind me, or in front of me and I'd have to gently get him to move... Read more

I admit it. I've been naughty. I've been on vacation since the 2nd of July. The 4th of July I gave in to the call of bbq'd hamburgers and macaroni salad. The day before I had a piece of deli chicken and some potato salad and some cole sla... Read more
