WOW! What a day

Friday, November 15, 2013

Today was my first day to work out on machines. I did a 5 minute warmup on the stationary bike. Then I worked out on 8 weight machines And then I walked on the treadmill 1.25 miles at 3 mph on a 3% incline. Tonight I walked with my husband 1.75 miles around our neighborhood. What a great day.


My journey to a healthier life

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

I went to the Glendale adult center and had a one hour session with a personal trainer. I was doing great until I saw myself in the mirror while working on the bench. Geez. I remember a time when that would send me running for chocolate. Not only did I walk almost 3 miles today I worked on weight machines AND I did NOT eat any dessert anytime during the day or night even though I have been craving one of those ice cream bars in my freezer. I am so proud.

Excuses give us reasons to fail....

Sunday, February 13, 2011

I just read this on Spark People. So so right. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I just rode my bike for the first time in over two years. If riding my bike makes me feel this energized, why don't I do it more often? I am going to look for a group of ladies who are willing and dedicated to walking 3 days a week at least two miles. It's much more fun when you have buddies to walk with. ANybody up for hiking. My hubby and I found a short hike (30 minutes up the hill and about 20 minutes down) at Thunderbird Conservation Park north of 101 on 59th ave. I am going there next Sunday about 10 am. Any takers?


I need some ideas

Monday, February 07, 2011

I finished reading Robert Maurer's book "One small step can change your life....". One chapter says to give myself a reward (small) for succeeding in my small steps forward to my goal. I need ideas. Small - inexpensive - ideas.
