Baby steps

Staying active is easier on Facebook, as I can just write a sentence or two there. Not that there's anything preventing me from doing the same thing here. (Might need to give this some thought, as that could be my answer to staying updated here. Hmmmmm.)

On the fitness front, I've been doing The Dailey Method several times a week and am getting a lot stronger. But boy oh boy do plies and thigh work HURT!!! I mean like hurt, burn, pain, yikes! Even though I'm getting stronger, I did a DVD on Wednesday (only 30 minutes of it!) and I have been crazy sore ever since. If you want to check out a really good instructor, Google Paul Katami. Or click here to see which specific DVD I did. OUCH!!!

Leaving for Southern CA in the morning to visit my mother (boy do I love her!) and attend The Women's Conference. Michelle Obama is the featured speaker on Tuesday morning, and there are many well-respected women presenting at this three-day event.

(I feel like this is really disjointed...)

Today Tim and I did 10 minutes of the Paul Katami Ab Lab DVD. Tim's had trouble finding ab exercises that don't get his hip flexors overinvolved and in pain, and the first 10 minutes are all standing ab stuff. He liked it (woo hoo)! And then we ran a hilly 4 miles in the rain. We both wear iPods when we run and I'm sure there are people who see us and think "they are out and not even talking? what's wrong with them?" But it works for us. It's just nice to be together, and of course, if we want to talk, we can.

Hoping for a GIANTS win tonight! Happy Saturday!!!

I would simply say that you should write whatever you feel is best.

You need to be completely comfortable externalising yourself in a certain way, otherwise you will just feel under pressure to do it, for reasons that aren't making it enjoyable as it could be.

Chin up, be strong and best wishes.

You can be very proud of everything you try to do with your life, so don't let anything you experience get you down, because you deserve to be happy.

:-) :-).

Happy for your Giants, since if the Padres had to lose to a team it should be the one that takes it all. Enjoy the Women's Conference in Long Beach.

And, win they did. I'm so excited for the World Series to start tomorrow night. Aren't you?
Go Giants! ;)

Congratulations to your Giants!

I'm glad to hear that you're doing well. I've been thinking about you lately!
