About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

Check that sidebar, baby – the LazyMan is COMPLETE! In the last month, I have walked 26.2 miles, biked 112, and swam 2.5. I started this with no clue whether I’d actually manage to pull it off, and worried that schedule conflicts would derail me, but I DID IT!!! I am so thankful that my […]

LazyMan Update, Week Two

So, here we are on the 15th. Halfway through the month. How am I doing?

Walking – I’m just 1/10 of a mile shy of being exactly halfway done with this. I’ve got 13 miles done, with 13.2 left to go.

Biking – I’ve completed 62 miles, with 50 left to go – 55% done!


LazyMan Update, Week One

OK, first, thank you all for being so sweet about my last post. I should let you know, though, that my friend wasn’t being as awful as that probably sounded. He and I have known each other since high school, and that’s just kind of how we are – we bust on each other. He […]

Day One

Day one of what, you ask? The IronChix LazyMan triathlon, which has also been adopted by some folks on Rav as the IronWeasel (We didn’t like the “lazy” part).

My friend Mary (she of the ill-advised biking attempt) is part of a group of women who do triathlons. For April, they are doing what is […]

Three Steps Forward, Two (Painful) Steps Back

So, I spent my afternoon in the emergency room, you?

It started yesterday while I was working out like a good girl. My left foot was bothering me. I figured I had just done something, and it would work itself out.

I woke up this morning, and it was ok. By the time I was […]

Boring Personal Diet and Fitness-y Stuff

If you have no interest in my weight issues, click on by. There’s no knitting here today, and I won’t be insulted. Might try to post some WIP shots this weekend, though. 🙂

So, remember the Fitness-a-Long thing I was doing last spring? Yeah… neither do any of us who were in on it. We […]

Week 3 Update!

Wow – 3 weeks already? Time flies! (Which reminds me of one of my favorite bad jokes: Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. Yeah, I know. I have a bizarre sense of humor.)

So, after the weekend of debauchery that was Maryland Sheep and Wool, I was not looking forward to […]

Week 2 Update

Weight: 224.2

Bust: 46 (no change)

Waist: 38 (up 1/2″)

Hips: 47 (up 1/2″)

Meh. Gained another 2 pounds this week, and gained back half an inch on both waist and hips. Honestly, I’m not surprised. I’ve been pretty good about working out, but I’ve really been eating for crap. Especially this weekend. Had a […]

I Heart Jason Segel

In fact, I’ve had a bit of a thing for him since back when he was on the late, lamented “Freaks and Geeks” as Nick Andopolis. He’s just adorable in a very real, teddybearish kind of way. And he’s just as awesome on “How I Met Your Mother“, which I also love.

If you are […]


So, I’ve been thinking about the comments you guys all left on Wednesday’s post. First of all, you have no idea how much those comments made the ache in my quads and abs a little less painful. Secondly, Betsy suggested something, and I think I like it. Who would be interested in a Fitness-A-Long? I’m […]
