Good morning, everyone, and welcome to our old friend, SUMMERTIME! Listen, even though the calendar says it's a couple of weeks away, it was 108 degrees in the beautiful San Fernando Valley yesterday, and as far as I'm concerned, that means either (1) it's summer or (b) climate change is HAPPENING, people! And of course, … Continue reading Summertime blues weigh-in!
Well, howdy and happy Friday, everyone! This has been a different week, exercise-wise. Mostly, because the weather was a little cooler (i.e., 80s and 90s instead of 90s and 100s!), I walked every day, and enjoyed it, for the most part (although the last 50 yards are always the hardest!). Still, I did make it … Continue reading Friday Five: My 5 rules for the gym, in no particular order
Hmm, just realized it's been quite a while since I've tried to find five random things and connect them in some way. Let's see if I still have the knack!

Happy Monday, everyone! Hey, guess what? I'm getting ready to hit the road this morning for a technically unexplainable journey into the outer stratosphere! Well ... okay, Arizona. Still, a road trip is a road trip, right, Dorothy? Anyway, before that, how's about we hit the scales? Ready? Here we go! 195.4 Yippee-skip - not too … Continue reading Rhymin’ Weekly Weigh-in, Road Trip edition, plus another (unpaid*) plug for Anytime Fitness!
Wow. Well, I never thought this would happen, but as of this past Wednesday, I've actually got TWO gym memberships, simultaneously! In addition to my on-again, off-again recurring 24 Hour Fitness membership (it's all about the POOL, people!!), I've just signed up with Anytime Fitness for a year. And THAT one, my friends, is all … Continue reading On becoming a Gym Rat
