Onward again!

Saturday, July 20, 2013

Had blog all done and tried to submit, but having Internet trouble. Just another thing today.
I can do the second 1/2 of the 60 day summer challenge, because I have completed the first 1/2 by tracking nutrition and exercise most days. Most days I have come out with a negative differential ( thanks Donna for sharing this). That has encouraged the days that the calorie count was over the recommended levels.

I also appreciate a time that I cam be on the same page, spiritually & physically, as well as in the middle of the night some nights. emoticon

I can do this!

Monday, June 24, 2013


This spring I was priveledged to visit the Brice canyon area of Utah.
One on the areas that I really wanted to see was the petrified forest.
The brochure said it was an easy 1 mile hike. No problem. I can do that even In the condition my knee was in. The problem came when that trail head, undetermined in length was longer than the trail itself. Not only that, but it was at a significant incline, not quite straight up because it zig-zagged back and forth. Part way up I realized that I was not as capable as I should have been. I even had to stop and rest on a boulder before I reached the trail.
I survived, but knew then that I had to find a way to get back to the place where I could do what I still wanted.
I am believing that the 60 day summer challenge will be just the motivation I need to achieve the maximum level of physical fitness!

    I know how you feel. I was there three years ago, and I'm afraid I am there again. I need to really get this body moving, but the heat here right now is not fun to move in; just doing laundry breaks a sweat.

All this to say that I know emoticon

Chair exercises

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Due to the intense pain I have when do regular exercise, I have decided to try the "chair exercises" figuring something was better than nothing. emoticon I was surprised by the level in intensity and am sure that different muscles in my legs will know it, but hopefully the hip will be ok. emoticon

Hello Penny! I've done chair exercises before and it was a great workout. I like doing the ones that Spark have and they are really intense to be in chairs. I pray your hip heals if it's not already!
Blessings!

    I remembered long ago when I first started, I had twisted my ankle I was doing Leslie Sansone's walking videos in the house and I was so bummed that I thought I had to quit. NOT! I did chair exercises.
My boys were teasing me and said "Momma's done the 1 mile walk!" "She's done the 2 mile walk!" "Now she's doing the 3 mile chair walk!" emoticon emoticon Blessings on your journey! emoticon

    If it's a good intensity, I may have to try it; just for something new.

    I belong to Silver Sneakers and a lot of our exercises are on a chair, and it is surprising how much we work with them.
