35 Minutes with My Mother

I started my day with Zumba at 8am and I have not stopped moving since.  Five stops along the way and I still needed to drop something at my mother's.  I called her to see if I could drop by. She said it was too cold and she wasn't going to church so c'mon over.  Off I went. I was pooped, still in my workout clothes and had two more stops to make. When I arrived at her house, the door was open…

For once, I am speechless.

Speechless? You may ask, "Are you ill?"  Or "Lost your voice?"  Nope, just shocked into silence.  For once, I didn't know what to say. Just yesterday I posted my new resolution for April. I  wrote about my efforts to slow down, just breathe and keep moving.

2015 New Year’s Resolutions-March- Just Breathe.

I am back in the saddle this month with 54 logged in under my belt so far. February 's goal was to take it slow.  I am not quite…

What’s in your underwear drawer?

Let's cut to the chase and face it ladies, we all have underwear earmarked for specific use.  I don't know if guys do this or not.  I'd be open to have the conversation. The reason this has been on my mind is because the last few classes I took at the gym, I wore the wrong sports bra.  For spin, I wear something not as binding as the girls are not moving about.  Zumba is another story.  I need support so…

Where were you this morning when it was -10 degrees?

I did not sleep well last night. I tossed and turned and according to my Fitbit I slept under 5 hours in total. My mind racing with FASFA Forms, crew fund raising events, Chip's painful elbow, Izzy's illnesses and the challenges of my job. I am up, so I began moving around 4am and signed in to secure a spot in the 5:30am spin class.  I set out earlier than usual and got to the parking lot at 4:45 and I waited.…
