Planning to go to the gym this afternoon

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Usually I do the steps (17) in my house several times a day, and walk several times a week. I want to increase my activity to improve my spirits and lose more weight. Since I love to swim, and have lost weight that way before, I also enjoyed swimming in my friend's backyard pool; but her husband isn't well right now, so that option is out. Fortunately, I can walk to my local Y, where my health insurance gives me a generous, and only slightly limited, membership as preventive medicine. It isn't as beautiful as her backyard, but on the other hand I won't have to drive to get there.

Planning to work out at the gym tomorrow! :D

Sunday, December 25, 2011

Holidays are difficult times, I think. Friends and neighbors all mean well when they invite us - even expect us to participate in parties, gatherings, and events. They want to elevate our spirits during the dark days of winter. All the extra food, though, can sabotage our best efforts to stay on our diets. And the time required for parties and other special holiday events can sabotage our best efforts to stick to our sleep schedules. Together, this can be a combination that may result in weight gain.

The very best antidote I can think of is to work out. Whether at home or at a gym, getting active can result in burning off those extra calories, increasing your serotonin levels (making you feel happier), and preventing weight gain that otherwise might result in depression once the holidays are over.

Now on my own at new job

Monday, November 14, 2011

After being trained for 4 days last week, I was on my own this morning, and I wasn't very well organized, I'm afraid. At least I was told that the coffee I made was potable. But there were several things I should have done that slipped through the cracks. Will have to do better tomorrow.

Extra busy

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Sorry if I've been more absent than usual: a new temps work assignment and several volunteer commitments have caused me to be somewhat absent since Friday. Our community Chorale rehearsal was Friday evening for the Saturday evening performance, and I had a Women's Caucus meeting Saturday as well. Inbetween I had to hem my dress. Sunday after church we had a Congregational Meeting regarding dispensation of our piano. Sunday afternoon there was a memorial service for an acquaintance who died suddenly. Started the new temps assignment Monday morning, then got my shingles vaccine, dropped off some printer ink cartridges for re-use/recycling, and did some shopping errands. Tuesday after work I went to vote, made phone calls for 2 1/2 hrs, urging others to vote, and had Chorale rehearsal until after 9 pm. Just recounting it all makes me feel tired. I meant to work out this afternoon, but just came home instead - maybe tomorrow....

Knocked myself out yesterday

Walked, rode the bike, and mowed the grass yesterday. Knee a little stiff today, but it will be fine tomorrow.
