My Walk For Cancer May 08, 2010

Sunday, May 09, 2010

Today I was supposed to walk a 5K with the Susan G Komen walk in SLC, but the registration date had passed, so in honor of my mother, my father, and my father-in-law who all died of cancer I did my own walk...I logged 7.35 K or 4.57 miles! My pedometer isn't tracking milege exactly right so I mapped my walk on Map My Walk.com and this is what I came up with... emoticon emoticon

Counting down to Hawaii

Friday, May 07, 2010

Today is May 7th, 2010, a scant 32 days until go time... As of yesterday, our airline reservations have been made and we are awaiting confirmation for our lodging. We will be joininng my sister, brother-in-law and their teenage grandson in Kauai....there are alot of obstacles to our going but like everything else in life, breaking it into bite size pieces will get us there. Speaking of bite size pieces, I have to be honest here and state that I am 10 lbs up from my goal weight of 142...I am not certain that 142 is the best weight for me but as of right now, I am determined to get back to goal by June's weigh-in. This may be overly optimistic but hey, I'm once again shooting for the stars...it's been a tough couple of months on one side of the spectrum and awesome on the other....it is what it is and each moment is an opportunity to decide how to feel...today I feel amazing...the money will come, the pounds will go...it's all good..... emoticon emoticon


Day 1 Jan 3, 2010

Monday, January 04, 2010

Well my first day of Boot Camp and I missed it. All is not lost though, I rode my recumbant bike at a moderate pace for 60 minutes and then rode my horse for another hour. My computer is located in my office, which is overrun with scrapbooking supplies and no space to work out in. Tomorrow morning I will rearrange some things to give myself space......


Pre-Day 1 Boot Camp Video

Sunday, January 04, 2009

Since the video was posted, I decided to give it a shot on Friday. I went through it twice very awkwardly. My knees are so-oo stiff and sore. I hope I can get through this. I could hardly move my knees yesterday. Today, is a little better. Since I reached my weight loss goal just before Thanksgiving, I had determined that I would get back on the exercise bandwagon. So this comes at the perfect time. Soemhow I have managed to stay within my goal range, even losing another pound. For about 10 days I walked outdoors, chilly but tolerable. Then our weather turned snowy and colder, so that's gone for now. I do alot of kick-backs and lateral thigh moves, both in and out. I walk around my house incessantly, trying to rack up those steps. New Years Eve, I was dancing to the after party on TV. Needless to say, I was wide awake for awhile. I understand the Boot Camp officially begins tomorrow and I am committed to make it through one way or the other. I am also committed to being as physical as I can possibly be and to work through the videos at least twice but I am shooting for three times.


What will I do differently to avoid Holiday weight gain?

Tuesday, December 09, 2008

Well, for me it's not what I am doing different as much as what I continue to do. I have been going to Weight Watchers for 15 months and have reached my goal weight. That alone is a pretty big motivator. What got me here though, is going to meetings and diligently keeping my tracker. These two things keep me honest. Even if I'm slacking off, I know what is going on. I also spend time daily tracking foods, reading articles, tracking exercise, etc on Spark People. Exercise has been a new addition for me and I am working on making it a solid habit, a part of each day.............. emoticon
