Usually when I'm 'multitasking,' it means I'm doing online work with the TV on or maybe petting a dog while talking on the phone - but this morning we had the best kind of multitasking when DH, the dogs and I walked down to the post office to ma... Read more

My my, how time flies when we're busy - I can hardly believe it's the weekend already! Well, technically not 'weekend' for a couple of hours but the 'Friday traffic' has already started and that's the cut-off in my mind so let the party begin! ... Read more

Wednesday, October 19, 2011      8 comments

Sometimes I think my fitness plans were inspired by Goldilocks - that is, I don't want to exercise when it's too hot or too cold but have a great time when the temperatures are 'just right' - like Goldilocks eating porridge in the children's sto... Read more

Dusting off the treadmill
Friday, October 14, 2011      5 comments

I have a treadmill at home that I got when I was taking care of my dad and unable to leave the house. I bought it used for a pretty good price and like it because it's a 'space-saver' type that folds up to take up less room when it's not being u... Read more
