Ten Lazy Reasons Not to Go Running


I’m good at making up excuses, and wasting time. Sometimes I call these activities “creative thinking” or “resting” or “re-charging my batteries,” which sounds like something a cheap counselor or newbie self-help coach might say. But really, I’m just being lazy. Some people say lazy people never get anywhere in the end, but isn’t that […]

Swimming with My Eyes Closed


Besides the not-being-able-to-breathe-under-water thing, swimming can be pretty relaxing. It’s just me and the water and my breath, and the muffled sound of my own splashing. Without any extra outside sounds to distract me, I start noticing how much my mind wanders through and around all the conversations I have with myself. Today I was […]

Esther Williams, Do You Like My Hat?


Oh yes, I really did buy this lovely flowered latex swim cap after my children suggested it when they saw the little old ladies doing water aerobics at the pool. But they didn’t think I’d actually go through with it. Or put it on during family rec swim at Amazon pool. On a crowded Saturday. […]

My Funny Date with Suzy Soro in Hollywood


I met @HotComesToDie, who’s real name is Suzy Soro, when I was in L.A. trying to get my big break with Oprah. I met Suzy on Twitter first, and she said “call me when you’re in town,” like people do sometimes, just to be nice. But I actually did. And then, she had to meet […]

Michael Runs from Gangbangers for Exercise


More fun on Melrose Place: I haven’t seen Michael Moldofsky since graduating from Churchill High School in 1983. Except maybe at the 20th year reunion, but neither of us could confirm or deny it. I do remember seeing Bobbie Stevens at that reunion though, along with his lovely wife Debi, and he told me and […]

Habitat for Humanity’s Pregnant Sophie Sings


My friend Sophie’s pregnant. She’s adorable, she exercises, and she sings. She’s also the Director of the Bend Area Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, a fabulous place where you can donate and buy things for houses, knowing all the money goes to build more houses for those in need. It’s a good thing. The ReStore crew […]

Oprah and Hula Hoops


I’m working on a video for Oprah’s new television network. It’s an open call, so I’ll be in the mix with 1,000’s of others, but hey, it’s a great excuse to get outside and meet new people, like the amazing Mollie Hogan of Hoopdazzle. I’ll post more soon, including a link to the video and […]

Cooking with @juliejulie: Shake Weight & POM


Alrighty then, here’s the first Cooking Show segment for Chubby Mommy Running Club, featuring the ever-popular Shake Weight exercise apparatus, and the delicious POM Wonderful juice. I cooked in red this time. What color should I cook next time? Something yummy, involving “Dynamic Inertia,” to be sure. Do you have any special tools you like […]

I just bought this thing two days ago, and decided to do a cooking show with it. Because Food Network needs me, that’s why. Full video coming soon, I promise. Also, please call your local Congressman and tell him or her that I need to make a video about them and their fitness routine, because […]
