Fitness Friday: under the weather routine

One of my favorite fitness video instructors is Jessica Smith. She has a YouTube channel full of free workouts. This week, since I’m still coughing, I took advantage of her “Under the Weather Routine.” It was a great way to be moving without overdoing it. Since cold and flu season is in full swing, I’m […]

Fitness Friday: calling in sick

I don’t have the energy or focus to write a post this week. My son and I both have some kind of cold that involves coughing. My back hurts from the coughing. I feel lucky that we’ve both been healthy for almost a year. If we can avoid this cold becoming worse, we will be […]

Fitness Friday: biddy camp

This week I took Philip to a biddy camp. The high school cross country coach offers the free camp twice a year: once in the summer and once in the winter. I took Philip for the first time in July. High school students from the team assist the coach in demonstrating technique, leading stretches, and […]

Fitness Friday: January 2018 recap

Happy Groundhog Day! Like Bill Murray’s character in the 1993 film, when it comes to my health, I find myself repeating the same mistakes over and over again. Of course, the movie character learns from his mistakes and creates the new, better habits that help him win the girl in the end. So can I […]

Fitness Friday: active minutes

For the past few months, I’ve been focused on my daily step count. In fact, I set myself a goal this year of earning the Fitbit badge for 20,000 steps in a day. Lately, however, I’ve started paying attention to my active minutes, too. I was amused to see that I ended up with seven […]

Fitness Friday: resistant

I’m resistant to change. I written it before: breaking bad habits and replacing them with good habits is what it will take to live the life I want, can, and should live.


I wish I could say I am quick-witted. I wish I could say I’m quick to kindness. Alas, I am quickest at irritability. I am quick to question, quick to complain, quick to quarrel.

I’m pathetic

Sometimes a bruise will appear and I’m puzzled. How did that happen? I’ll ponder. Then there are times I predict, “That will leave a mark,” yet none will pop up. Then there are the times like yesterday. I banged my knee on the tailgate of our truck. “I’m going to have a bruise there,” I pronounced. […]


As Dirty Harry said, “Well, opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one.” Even though I keep my asshole covered, I can’t say the same for my opinion. Many a time my life would have been easier if I had just kept my mouth shut. Of course, I can think of instances when I kept my […]
