Eat, sleep, wander around the internet and run.
And teach piano, but I don't *like* doing that.
Such an interesting life I lead...
My DH now says I am an "official" blogger.
Outside the gym, fitness related or non-fitness?
fitness: ski, skate, hike, run, rollerblade, bike
non-fitness: calligraphy, cooking/baking, volunteering, having coffee, doing nothing, watching Top Chef, learning Italian
Jean, I think it's really awesome that you're trying to teach your kids those things. My mom sort of did the same thing. She'd encourage me to take a "mental health day", blow off school and go shopping with her. I remember feeling very split about it - it was kind of fun to be "bad" and be out shopping on a random Tuesday but I was terribly worried that the grown-ups would think I was a bad kid for not being in school (or worse - that I'd been suspended or something).
Try as she did, I still ended up a rather anal retentive adult. It's only been in my 30's that I find myself attempting to redo my childhood. :)
I have quite a few interests.
I enjoy snuggling up with DH and watching our shows together.
I love spending time with my cats and playing with them.
I enjoy Burning Man and BM-related activities. It has sparked an interest in costuming as my friend taught me how to sew boot covers and make hair falls.
I like doing random fun activities, like the Santarchy bar crawl and the Brides of March bar crawl.
I like going to parties and socializing with my close friends.
I like trying new restaurants although I'm often disappointed.
I like to bake but don't do it very often because I eat what I make. :)
I like to organize things from social gatherings to messy closets... it's weird but sort of relaxing.
I like to write. I enjoy expressing myself creatively through my blogs and also journaling.
I love music... specifically electronic music. It's one of the easiest ways to lift my spirits or get myself motivated.
I like trashy TV shows (the shows DH won't watch with me)... The Real World, Rock of Love Bus, Sober House and Tool Academy. Since I got a DVR in my gym, this is what is occupying me during workouts.
My daughter is the same way, and I wonder how much is nature vs. nurture.
I'm with you on the baking...and cooking...I always make too much and end up eating too much.
