  1. A week on the ranch (March 16 - March 22, 2009)

    And what a week it was!! Another one of those maelstrom of energy kind of weeks that makes the days fly by!!

    I had to fly to Vegas in the middle of the week, for work. The weather was beautiful, but I really hate that city, and couldn't wait to get back home. I think I'm allergic to Vegas! Or maybe I'm just allergic to noise, traffic, and really low-class people who are too self-absorbed in their own hedonistic whirlwind of self-destruction to give a thought to the damage they ...

    Not my best day, but not my worst. I didn't really do any exercise, mostly because I ran out of time doing all my chores for the week! I was up and down stairs, doing laundry, cleaning cages, feeding the time I thought about exercising, I was too darned tired! I also am anticipating a very strenuous day tomorrow, as we have training all day, which is kind of like being stuck in gym for eight hours. I am usually VERY stiff and sore for a few days after training, so I'm being a bit ...

    Didn't drink any water today. Bad, bad, bad. I was running back and forth to work, to the airport, back to work, then home, and I totally forgot. Oh, well....

    Went on a three mile walk today and got my push-ups in.

    Had about 1/2 serving of huevos rancheros for breakfast, along with a cup of coffee. I had a soymilk smoothie (Chocolate Silk and frozen bananas) for lunch, and a large serving of wild mushroom tart (yum!!) for dinner.

    I'm running around ...

    Ups and downs today. I missed breakfast, because I was in a hurry to get out to an early meeting. Lunch was a very hurried "bowl" (about a cup) of chili (of which I ate about half) in a bread bowl (of which I ate about a tenth). Dinner was salad.

    I did get all my water down today! Woo hoo!!

    Took my multi-vitamin with a swig of fruit juice.

    Exercise-wise, I did 32 minutes on the treadmill and I did my free weights.

    I am not ...

  5. A week on the ranch (March 9 -March 15)

    It was a good week overall. I feel like I progressed as an individual, which is the best thing I can hope for in my life.

    My sister celebrated her 47th birthday this week, and we went out to lunch together. She was diagnosed with breast cancer six years ago, and watching her go through that, and how it has changed her as an individual, makes me more appreciative of my own time here on earth. She lives under the shadow of a darkness that affects every day of her life, more so right ...
