An extension of me.

It was tucked away in my laptop bag, rolled up tight, hidden. I had to bring it, I just didn’t think I could get on the plane without it. No one found it at security, and after I threw my shoes back on I ducked into a bathroom where I carefully took it from my […]

At Last…..

I am off  to Orlando tomorrow for a work conference. I am looking forward to the sun and for the opportunity to network and learn more in an ever changing industry. You have to know this was not the blog post I had originally written. I had one all set last night to post today […]

A Friday morning choice.

It’s Friday. A good excuse to blow off the fact that I did not have anything prepared to take for lunch today. I could “grab” something out, perhaps a splurge, a treat, a reward, a nice way to end the week, or start the weekend, I will be extra good tomorrow, I will….STOP it. Stop […]

The Bar Method….shouldn’t that involve bourbon?

I should have know I was in trouble the second I heard the words “I have a surprise for you and you’re gonna loooovvve it!”, coming from a very enthusiastic Lindsey on the other end of the phone. I have heard these words before from her, generally followed by such things as running laps holding […]

Yes, I am.

When I told Lindsey I wanted to run the Flying Pig 5K again this year with a goal of running the majority of the race instead of walking/running it, she asked me a simple question as we chatted about the best way to train. When you stop running why you are stopping, are you out […]

Scaling the walls.

I woke up yesterday feeling sore, you know that well deserved euphoria sore from exercise. It had been two weeks in which I had been spot on with eating and exercising like crazy (running, walking, yoga, biking, lifting, planking) spot on with making good choices and putting myself in the best places I could be. […]

Baby it’s cold outside…

Yesterday Jenny and I went on a 15 mile bike ride on the Loveland trail, it was 65 glorious degrees and a perfect day for a ride! I snapped a pic riding under my favorite bridge.   Today it was cold, rainy and while the yoga class with Jessica this morning had me feeling great […]

Drive threw.

It has been a really good week. I have not overbooked myself, I have cooked, eaten very well through the week and I found myself at the gym 4 times so far. Monday night with Lindsey, Wednesday night with Jonesy and Lauren, Thursday morning with Lindsey and tonight with AC/DC, Tina Turner and the Indigo […]

A hair raising experience.

I can’t imagine what goes through his head when I take the schnauzers to get groomed. Tristan has a hard time to say the least. They however enthusiastically go crazy when I pull out their leashes, he high tails it into his crate and stays there. He will not take a treat, he will not […]

Space #33

The red  brake light  lined streets of a busy downtown were not helping my attempt to make my way to a local pub to meet friends after work tonight.  I had already missed one parking space by not paying attention and it seemed impossible that I would be gifted another chance from the parking gods. […]

Who invited all these people?

The new year brings new hope and new resolutions for people looking to implement change. Another words it’s like trying fit a bundt cake into a muffin tin at the gym. Maybe I don’t remember it being this full last January or maybe I was too scared to look around instead keeping my head down […]

Lay my head down.

Time is a funny thing it can slowly seep like blackstrap molasses onto a fresh baked biscuit until you are forced to  grab a spoon and end the agonizing wait or it can fly by at the speed of light leaving you wondering where the hell it went. Next month will be Tristan’s two year […]

The Good Stuff…

  I was able to avoid eating delicious looking scones this morning with clotted cream, jam and butter and it’s not cause I didn’t want one, it’s that I want something else more. (it also helped that Scott was watching me like a hawk!) We got off work early today, thanks to one amazing CEO, […]

A handshake at Starbucks.

It is remarkable how I get what I need when I need it, and not a moment too soon. I met my friend Lindsey….uh, wait a minute  not MY Lindsey, I mean this Lindsey is my Lindsey too, but this is not THAT Lindsey. oh, boy…-never mind. Let’s start over…. I met my dear friend […]

Why does almond milk taste like play-doh and other thoughts….

I have to say that as far as days goes, today was a good one. I would like the world to believe that I was dreading going back to work after being off for 12 glorious days, heck I had even convinced myself that the groan I muttered this morning as my alarm blared in […]
