Thanks, Thier - looks pretty empty here tonight -
I'm guessing most people have a life....

Oh well - I just brewed up some hazelnut coffee and I'm making up some fresh strawberry shortcake with whipped cream.

Any takers?

I'm a taker. Boy, I've got a lot of stationary bike riding to do, though, to get rid of the candy pudge around my middle. I've been so tired, and when I'm tired, I go for the sugar. Guess I'll have the coffee, but please hold the shortcake.

Thier! Take it from me - the stationary bike is a great idea for doing cardio, keeping your heart rate up & giving you more energy (provided you do it at least 30 min 2x/day....

but for the middle...the bike won't do much. Crunch those abs!

And, with the newfound slimmer tummy, you'll be less apt to go for the sugar !

Hmmm...Do you think an old computer slave like me could really get the waistline back? What else should I do for the middle (I'm skinny everywhere else...)?

Well, your waistline needs crunches. Really. People get larger around the middle from the foods they eat. It's a bummer, huh?

But, in the short 2 months I've been working with a trainer, my tummy has completely flattened. Granted, it was just a little pooch when I started, but now it's pretty hard. It's mostly from crunches, situps, pushups, and some bench work with free weights on the arms where you're keeping balance, as your legs are in midair. I do alot of cardio & stairclimbing too.
If you've got a big gym nearby, I totally recommend checking it out! Also, my sugar intake has lessened, and my water intake has increased dramatically, which is a very healthy thing indeed!

Now, back to slicing strawberries...

I'm back for a bit. But ditch the coffee bar! I got the keys to the liquor cabinet! *flipping bottles a la Tom Cruise* Any requests?

I'll take the usual....

Malibu & Coke


it's the only alcohol I can drink many of and never ever get drunk...I learned about it from a woman (about 150 years old) who played 21 with me in Vegas years ago...


sorry - still got Vegas on the brain! I wish someone from DC was going so I could meet them!
