All it takes is 10 minutes

July 2, 2014

Okay, I am now convinced that a 10 minute interval is a very good thing. No surprise, some exercise convinced me. I used to think that if I couldn’t exercise for a solid 60 minutes, that it wasn’t worth exercising. Well, life gets in the way sometimes. I love how a quick 10 minute stretch […]

Confessions of a reformed runner

Torn hip cartilage, acute trochanteric bursitis, knee tendonitis, plantar fasciitis. These are just a few of the ailments that I’ve accumulated over the past few years. Flash forward to today and I am totally pain free. What happened? In short, I wasn’t listening to my body. No, I wasn’t running marathons. Heck I wasn’t even […]

I collect exercise balls and my dear husband collects computers. Here’s the story of his latest acquisition. He volunteered to help, er rather, I volunteered him to help a friend set up his new computer. Since this set up took almost a full day, our friend gave Ken his old laptop as a thank you. […]

I was at my favorite place in Cambridge last weekend, the Microsoft Research and Development Center, also known as the NERD Center; that’s appropriate, isn’t it? This conference was called Product Camp.  And believe it or not, I do have other interests in life besides exercise and Peeps.  Although, those two topics are more fun […]

A day in Nancy’s life

Not that my life is that interesting, but I thought you all might enjoying spending the day with me. 1. Wake up. Yes, you read that correctly, it’s 4:30 am. I guess you could say that I’m most definitely a morning person! 2. Eat a (healthy) breakfast. I need lots of fuel to get me […]

Another Facebook rant

I still have mixed feelings about social media. On one hand, I love it because I’ve met so many wonderful people from all over the world. On the other hand, it seems much easier for people to be annoying. Or is that I let them be annoying? Is this a chicken and egg conundrum? Enough […]

Normally, I view resolutions as things to be broken. Then you feel guilty and all out of sorts. Who needs that? But, in my quest to be more in charge of my destiny, I’ve decided to be more accountable. What better way than to publicly declare my intentions? So here goes, my New Year’s Resolutions. […]

Social media rant

Do you love social media? Or do you hate it? Right now, I’m leaning more towards the hate side. Hate is a strong word, maybe more like annoyed. Blogging is my exception. I love it because I’ve met so many wonderful people from all around the world. I haven’t traveled abroad much, so it’s especially […]

There is always a way

I love walking; it’s my favorite form of exercise. You can do it anywhere and with minimal equipment. You can also do it at work and not get too sweaty. I used to love to take a walk in the afternoons, after sitting hunched over my computer all day. It was a great way to […]
