Cuy! Cuy! Cuy!

I believe the Peruvian name for guinea pig is an onompatopeia (spelling?) Anyway, today to gain one littel Spark Point I did a search, and usually I just think, "hmm, what shall I look up today?" So I decided to look up guinea pigs. Found an article that mentioned them as food. I had my first taste of it when I was with Pastor Patricio for the day. He is from the sierra and wanted me to have a taste of their regional cooking. I KNEW it was guinea pig by the little paw on the leg quarter! Anyway, I was glad to see that it's low in fat and high in protein. So, when I go to Cusco in February, I'll make a point of enjoying it when it is served.

I broke through the barrier of 204! Weighing in at pre-poop 203 this morning, I am hopeful for 202 tomorrow morning - SIXTY pounds since I started. A Happy Anniversary present to myself (I suppose to dh as well, not that he really cares about my weight - in fact he is still wont to bring home snacks which I would rather he did not!)


water water water

Wednesday, October 25, 2006

Since i started school, I've been filling 3-4 half liter bottles halfway and freezing them the night before, then filling them the rest of the way with water before heading to school. With 4 bottles I can easily reach the 8 cup goal before lunch! Also, because I've drunk all that water I have to pee a lot. So if I canhold it, I go to the restroom on a different floor so that I can take a quick trot back upstairs, thus getting a little extra cardio.It's especially good, because being seated for too long makes me stiffen up.I need to move around some!
I've also taken to meeting my daughter on her way to get my granddaughter from school to walk with her part way. It's a mile round trip, which I'm not up for yet (I did it one day, and I was in a lot of pain afterwards). So, I'll work my way up.I'm sure as I lose more weight it won't bother me as much.


Almost forgot about blogging!

And what does it mean, BLOG? Is it an acronym?
Well, anyway...
While I appreciate the Richard Simmons' workouts, and the oldies can be fun, I DON'T like having "Upside Down" and "Maniac" stuck in my one night I sat and jotted down the routine, for the most part, and today I put in one of my favorite cd's, by Marcos Witt, and I worked out to TAHT. I didn't follow Simmons' routine EXACTLY, and I even put in some moves from the dance dvd, but I kept moviing vigorously and worked up a good sweat to " Tengo Libertad" , "Vengan Todos, " "El Gozo Del Senor" and., yes - "En Los Montes, En Los Valles". I even did a warm up to "Mi Deseo" and a cool down to "Dios Ha Sido Bueno". But I owe a debt of gratitude to R. Simmons and to D. Austin for at least showing me some moves, and I'll probably STIlL do them from time to time. But give me the worship and praise!


Daughter is best buddy

Friday, October 20, 2006

Abi lives with me (along with her 2 younglings, my grandkids) and it's she who got me into SP. She's been the greatest buddy, keeping me from trying calorie rich samples while we shop and saying no to things when I couldn't...and at the same time, understanding when sometimes you just gotta go over a bit. She's helped me to press on and challenge myself in exwercise when I felt like settliing for the minimum, and she's also "allowed" me to take a break from exercise when I've gone beyond the weekly goal. She's been a great encourager all around, and it's been wonderful to have a live-in buddy!
