First, the good news: saw my doctor this morning. He says my labs looked better than they ever have, and he’s thrilled with my progress. My cholesterol readings—both of them—are even below the lower limit for the healthy cholesterol range. (Funny to me, as I haven’t been watching that at all, since I’m on a… Continue reading good news
Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the blogroll. So, this was finals week for my Writing Commercial Fiction class. That kept me pretty occupied. I had a 3,000-word short story to finish revising and submit, plus the discussion boards were due earlier than normal. Just waiting on my grades now. I’m… Continue reading week in review: finals week

Last week I was only semi-accomplished, what with working over 40 hours at the day job (in 3 days), and getting my final project ready for my class (which ends this week). Not to… Continue reading week in review: races, rocks, and dinosaurs (oh my)!
..and I don’t mean “second breakfast.” Although I did have one of those about 10:15, after the race, in the form of a homemade breakfast burrito with some great–and spicy–salsa. Today was the Mammoth Race, the 5k the BFF and I signed up for about 3 months ago, and our first goal race for all… Continue reading playing hobbit (weekend workout #11)
