Why I Love My Thighs

I started writing this post almost a year ago, and it sat in my drafts, semi-forgotten. I was going to write about how most women hate their thighs, but I love mine, and here’s why. But I never posted this. Then I saw a tweet that made me ragey, it was for a 30 Day Thigh read more »

February Fails

February was hit or miss. Fitness: Keep up with PT exercises. Ugh. I did worse this month than last month. Weekly yoga. I made it to yoga once. Oy. Felt really great though. 104 strength workouts. I did 6 last month. I did join Class Pass toward the end of the month, which I’ve been wanting to do for read more »

Five Things Friday – Feb 20

Woot woot, it’s Friday! #1 – It’s been freezing this week. I’m really happy I got on the blanket scarf trend because it is cozy. But I am really looking forward to the end of winter. Weird gray ice mountains are everywhere. I’m also really itching to start bike commuting again, but not when the wind read more »

Five Things Friday

One – This past Tuesday was a free blogger class at Sproing. I took a class there last year, but they have improved it – added more Sproings, and also added the option of wearing a heart rate monitor, which gave feedback on a class board. Pretty neat for someone who loves running by heart rate. Before read more »

Jammin’ January

Goals check in! Fitness: Keep up with PT exercises. Ugh. I did my PT exercises 11x this month. I would not consider this keeping up. My goal is 25x per month. Weekly yoga. I made it to yoga twice. Hmm. 104 strength workouts. I did 7 last month. Remember when I posted about 30 days of read more »

Getting my IUD

Now that you know why I chose the IUD, here was my experience getting it in. TL; DR: I realize every woman is different, but it wasn’t that bad. For me. I was pleasantly surprised. Maybe I just built it up so much that I expected it to be one of the worst experiences in my life. read more »

Five Things Friday

This is basically a mash-up of stuff I’ve posted to Tumblr recently. My thoughts in italics.   I’ve been thinking a lot lately about love, what it means to love, how we love, etc. So I’ve been collecting a lot of thoughts about love.  “But I see now that the story isn’t about us; it’s read more »

Currently: January 2015

State of Things: Things are great. Good things are happening at work. Home life is happy. I started burlesque classes again at Studio L’amour. But my knee is telling me I haven’t been keeping up with my PT exercises enough, so I need to work on that. Olive is doing well too: Books: I got halfway read more »
