things I've been doing lately -- yes, it includes Shredding. sheesh.

Gong Hei Fat Choi!

I'm sorry it's a day late, but I've been busy, so my welcoming of The Tiger has had to wait.

"Why, Nenette? Why have you been so dang busy?!"

Well, I'll tell you. She's going to tell, she's going to tell, she's going to tell, she's going to tell...

1: Writing a new Canada Moms Blog post! Please head over, read "Because Everyday is Valentine's Day", and leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you!

2: Tw-Olympic-ing (meaning tweeting the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver from my bed). My favourite tweets of the night:

- dude running beside Wayne's truck: "Hey, Wayne, come back with that splif, man!" #nenetteshypotheticals

@thisfullhouse - oh, yeah, they have to say that, because they're athletes... they're fast at the whole "copping a feel" thing.

3: Caring for a sick kid. Yeah, my son's sick again. Fever on Friday night. Sniffles the next day on. Good thing it's a long weekend.

4: Trying to keep myself healthy. Different from the boy's illness. No fever or sniffles. Something more complicated. Fatigue, foggy-mindedness, poor/disturbed sleep, unable to handle stress (and I've had A LOT over the past 7+ years, maybe I'll blog about it sometime... not sure though -- it's heavy stuff), weird menstrual stuff, frequent flu/colds, and more. I'd go into more detail, but I'd be treading pretty damn close to TMI territory.
Anyway, I suspect adrenal fatigue. Will visit my health care professional soon to confirm.

5: Not changing despite all the borking Shredding. When I did the Shred everyday, I started to feel unwell as time went on. I became slow to recover from workouts. And I didn't lose any inches or weight. So, I cut my Shreds down to 3 times a week, with weights in between. I think the problem has something to do with that adrenal thing I was talking about in #4.

6: Moving bread around. Thanks to all who told me about their bread storing stories. I pitched my bread box... See?

And I put my bread in a "Carb Drawer" with the tortillas, rice and quinoa. See the ice cream bucket? That's my rice. Oh, and I only touch the quinoa...

7: Watching old videos. To pitch, of course. It's Box 2 of 2. Why the hell did I tape the episode of Oprah talking about her thighs?

So, what've YOU been up to?


  1. I have been a traveling fool. And eating my weight in carbs. It's a serious, serious effort.

  2. My wife is doing the Shred. Still on Stage 1, but it seems to be a new religion.

    Hope you and the little one feel better soon!

  3. I've been watching the Olympics... pretty much at every given opportunity

  4. I've been trying not to drown in Biology homework!:(
