Once upon a time, my favorite thing on warm summery evenings was sitting around with a cold, sweating Pacifico (or five) and a good book. I wouldn’t move from my chair unless a bathroom break or a particularly dedicated mosquito drove me from it, and I’d sometimes lean back and just look up at the sky, filled with quiet movements and sounds.

Life is different in about a million ways now. Gone are the lazy, sodden days of buzzed inertia and meandering contemplation, replaced by frenzied noise and activity and DO and GO and TRY.





I’ll take it, though. Abso-fuckin-lutely.

    Jillian has a couple of new workout videos that look killer:
    – Banish Fat Boost Metabolism Workout
    – No More Trouble Zones Workout in Tutorial

    I’ve got these on order. They’re getting high marks on Amazon, Youtube and Collage Video.

    As my marathon-runner friend tells me every time I turn in an embarrassingly slow 5k time: “Hey, you’re out there, girl. And that’s all that matters.”
