Wednesday, June 2, 2010....
Any readers following me on a regular basis know if it's Wednesday, it's time to Rant and Rave about the past week. I have to admit, being away for over a month has you overlook the negatives and only remember the positives. Without further adieu, here are my Rants (very little) and Raves from the past month:
Rave: I went to see the Addams Family on Broadway with Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth. A show that was panned by the critics, was in my opinion, a lot of fun.
Rave: Someone close to me recently had a breast biopsy and it came back clean. There was a bit of a scare since this person has 2 sisters that are breast cancer survivors, so I am VERY happy.
Rave: Started my veggie garden and already have lettuce I need to pick and some green tomatoes.
Rant: The right side of my neck - OUCH....I slept funny last night and now I have a crick that is making it painful to turn my head.
Rant: Wondering why it seems to take forever to get into good physical shape, but you can blink your eyes and be out-of-shape in no time.
Rave: LOVE my Polar FT7 heart rate monitor. Unlike a Biggest Loser contestant, I may have the time to work out as long as they do, but don't have the medical staff nearby to revive me. The FT7 is intuitive and makes working out a snap! I workout within my ranges and when I'm done (although, I'm a bit embarrassed because I'm not at the treadmill settings I'd like to be at) I'm sweating and can check out how many calories I burned while keeping it heart healthy. Also, the little heart rate gizmo on the strap you wear around your chest is detachable --- you can now wash the dang strap (anyone who ever had an older model where the monitor is not detachable from the strap knows the straps can get GROSS).
Rave: Have been trying to catch up with friends the past month and it's been great.
Rave: Discovered headaches for the past couple of months were allergies. Thanks Zyrtec! My days are much more pleasant.
Rave: Discovered the greatest skincare regime is really pretty inexpensive - Cetaphil, Witch Hazel and a dab of Oil of Olay regenerist.
Rave: It's Farmer Market season again! I love fresh great veggies AND love supporting the local farmer.
Rave: Helped raise funds for my local park by participating/helping in the annual plant sale. Not only did we raise some money, but I scored some great plants!
Okay, that's it for me. I would love to read any Rants and Raves you want to share? Just click on the linky thing for anyone that wants to participate in Rant and Rave Wednesday -- or leave them in the comments section here. Please, please be respectful and do not use the linky thing if you are just promoting your blog (yes, this is another Rant of mine).
