Wednesday & We're In The Kitchen Again!

Hey everyone! I finally got to a few of my specialty stores and put some good food back in the cupboards and fridge. So thought this a good opportunity to stop making promises and not keeping them! Here's a trip thru my well-stocked (at least for me) kitchen!

Oh, and for the record, I did NOT do the stairwells after all. By the time I got home it had gotten nice out, so I went for a ride on my legs, a lovely endurance run, instead. And, yes I was well-behaved at lunch. Had a salad w/grilled chicken & a club soda and also a coffee with some skim milk. And am very proud of self for not causing any guilt as a result of this day! :-)

What is #30DC??

Hey guys... for those of you who wonder what the heck I keep tweeting about when I say I'm leaving the twitter conversations to go back to watching videos for the #30DC or "30 Day Challenge", well this is one of the reasons I gave up regular TV!! I'm too busy watching videos on the computer! LOL

Actually, I'm trying to learn some new things about the Internet and all its mysteries and secrets. Basically, its a set of FREE lessons about how to make some bux on this crazy medium.

Learning new things is always exciting. And scary. But how does one grow unless they step out of their comfort zone? I'm determined to always be open to learning and growing in life. I hope you guys are too. So, I'm gonna do it and see how it goes.

I'll let you know what happens!

Go here to find out what the heck its all about:

30 Day Challenge

Also, f you think you might want to do this too, let me know, cuz the guy running it recommends his students do this in 'teams' but so far I'm all by myself muddling thru! At the moment I'm 4 days behind cuz I missed the pre-season videos and am now sifting thru those but am determined to catch up to the group and move forward.

Tuesday - Random Musings & Nocturnal Feedings

Hi everyone!!! Its Tuesday (already?) Today I discuss everything from my chiro visit & hamstrings to insomnia and nocturnal feedings right thru to what to replace your plastic water bottle with.

Fun With Xmas Pics

Hey you guys!!! I've been having a little too much fun perhaps with Scott from

May I call you attention to the top right-hand corner of the StraightToTheBar blog page!! I'm a t-shirt model too!!

Straight To The Bar

Ladies, Scott is looking for other models to put in this space. All you have to do is go to his site and purchase one of his awesome shirts here:

Click here to get the shirt

And then once you receive it, just have to have someone take your pic in your own home (or take it yourself with an automatic timer like I did) and send it to him and he'll do the rest!! He gets several hundred THOUSAND unique visitors a month and is offering YOU guys a link to your blog or vlog in exchange for your pic and permission to use it like he's using mine.

So, if you're interested in a little cross promotion that will likely drive some pretty good numbers to your own blog, please email me at the address in my sidebar and I'll hook you up.

Tuesday Guest Article

Hey everyone. I was asked by Scott of to do another guest article for his blog...its a topic I've already covered here in so for those of you who are regular visitors to this vlog, it may be a bit of a repeat for you but it is something I wanted to share with the StraightToTheBar people too.

Check it out!

Have a great Tuesday!

Monday Ramblings

Hey everyone... a little stream of consciousness here for you.

Oh, also I forgot to mention in the video that I actually shaved a full 2:15 off my endurance/hills run today (that's 2 MINUTES, 15 SECONDS!!) since the last time I did the same run just last week by just 'given er' instead of being delicate about it ... and man did that feel great!!!

See ya tomorrow!
