Unfortunately I already look like I'm in better shape that she is. Maybe she should be getting advice from me! I'll have to go back at another time.

    Nah, it's pretty fun though. And it has made me feel a lot better. If you enjoy it you should definitely go back; regardless of what a condescending personal trainer thinks :P

    Let's hope so! I hope I get totally into it and turn myself into a GODDESS! (Can the world stand it?)

    Yesterday I put a large beef roast in the slow cooker, but it wasn't done at midnight. I put the whole thing in the fridge and this morning I cut it up, whirled the sauce around in the chopper, added some more seasonings, and put it all back in on high. I prepped some pork chops, they are ready to go in when that is done. I should have no problems with getting enough protein during my next three nights of work. I haven't worked three in a row for awhile, wish me luck!

    Feeling a bit lazy this morning. Can't decide if I want to go to the pool or not. My skin and hair are feeling extremely dry despite my ministrations (liberal applications of jojoba and coconut oil). It is sunny and cold, I think a short hike is in order.

    That is one secret to living here in Maine. It is quite sunny. Even now, the dark time of the year when daylight is at its shortest, we have a lot of sunny days. It is the sunniest cold place I have ever lived. Maybe because it is on the coast, or just where it happens to be geographically. But I like the sun.

    Yesterday I was looking through my drawers and found a swimsuit bottom from a suit that I forgot I had. The top is horrible, way too low cut and no support at all. Totally unsuitable for lap swimming, even if I weren't a D cup. But the bottoms fit perfectly and are cut very nicely. Better than the bottoms I have for my two-piece tank. I subbed them yesterday and was very happy with the result. Luckily they are black and they go just fine with the purple print top. I was thinking of getting a lycra short sleeve shirt because last winter I just about froze in the pool but so far this year (it is early days yet) the pool has been a good temp. Maybe they have adjusted things because LOTS of folks were complaining. I know a lap pool should be on the cool side, but it was ridiculous. More like a polar bear swim. I had to get out a couple of times after about 10 minutes because my fingernails were blue and I was shaking uncontrollably. Well, hopefully not this year. I will hold off on the lycra shirt because they are pricey.

    A few months ago I was all excited about trying to make injera and bought a bag of teff. That bag of teff is still sitting unopened on my shelf and when I look at it I wonder why I was so hot to try it. What was I thinking?

    I should try that on Littlest. Her hair is almost down to her waist. It would look spectacular. But how in the world does one do it for themselves? Too bad cats don't have thumbs.

    That's the problem I'm having, it is too bunchy at the top. I haven't figured out how to move my hands around the way I can when I braid the normal way. I was thinking it would be great if I could get someone to do it for me, it is quite simple. But I am sure my co-workers would think I was totally over the top if I came in and asked someone to do my hair!

    Well, here I go bragging again, but my beef turned out spectacularly. Really good. I took the cover off the slow cooker for the last hour. I think the twice-cooking method was the key. It got really tender without getting mushy and the flavors blended so well. Unfortunately I ate so much of it that there is only enough left for possibly three meals. The pork chops are in the slow cooker right now.

    Went for a short but beautiful hike just down the road in the preserve. Such a great time of year.

    Spending a fair amount of time wondering how to proceed with connecting with the guy I ran into this weekend. I'm such a doof at these things. I'm not good at devising ways to meet up again. Other than just calling him and saying, 'hey, I'd like to get together.' Of course I wish HE would do that, but if I wait around for that to happen it probably won't.

    No, he lives two hours away. Nothing is simple!

    Haven't mastered the fishtail but have managed to create a huge snarl!
