general resolution

health review (?)

January 8, 2011

Around the time I started this blog I posted about my New Years General Resolutions.  You can go back and re-read it if you so desire, but I can summarize it for you with ease- I wanted to be healthier.  I think I’ve achieved this.  Not to suggest that I’m a picture of health and [...]

the insanity rant

June 10, 2010

I may be at a lifetime high in terms of cardiovascular fitness.  I may be able to walk up the hill from the beach to the house at the cottage without getting all huffy-puffy out of breath like.  I may be able to leap small buildings in a… ok, not so much that. But I [...]

Yup… hated it. I know, I know, in the first month post I was all “Woo Hoo!  Look at me!” Month two demonstrated how skilled I am in the art of justification, regardless of reason. Now month three is done and I appreciate your kindness in letting me just quietly sweep it under the rug. There [...]

new years general resolution

February 16, 2010

I turned 30 last year and unlike most people who lament their second 29th birthday, I didn’t have a hard time with it. I was done with the post high school find-yourself period, the college studious-but-stupid spell and the find-a-job-and-act-like-you’re-grown-up stretch.  I’d had the “lots’o’fun” that is expected of everyone in their 20’s (including that [...]
