Recommitment…Day 1 ;-)

Posted on: July 22, 2014


I’ve fallen off a lot of things recently. Blogging. “Other” exercise (than Crossfit). Amazing Race training. Watching what I eat. I definitely have a “SQUIRREL!” mentality. I start focusing on something new – and drop the balls I’m juggling in favor of …

April 1 (Day 208) – feeling kinda low . . .

Posted on: April 1, 2014


So, as you (the mythical you, since “you” really means “me”) can see, I haven’t blogged in a while. I find that I’m often spinning plates – and then all the plates crash to the ground. H calls me a “gadget freak” and that’s somewhat true. Have you seen …
