Wow! Love this song, although I'm afraid if I add it to my iPod you'll see me dancing and strutting down the sidewalk like a fool every time it comes on. Continue reading

There's a very specific reason I chose this week's song. I have entered my own personal PMS danger zone, which, given my age, can either last a week, a month or two months! It has tripped me up in months... Continue reading

Have you seen the Taylor Swift song "Shake it Off" mashed up with the 1988 National Aerobics Championship video? It sprung up last week and is hilarious. I was trying to find a version of this video that wouldn't self... Continue reading

I've been doing a lot of mom/wife/home stuff this week, and the diet and exercise have been on auto pilot, but a good kind of auto pilot. Continue reading

Y'know, I think I'm going to count my smoothie fruit Points. I usually only add one serving of fruit -- two at most -- to my smoothies, so an extra Point or two won't kill my total for the day.
