Something New

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

I stepped out a bit today so to speak-I took a Zumba class. I didn't know what to expect or really even exactly what it was. It was an hour of lots of movement to fast music that did challenge me. I am not young though I don't think of myself as old either. I thought as we were "Zumba-ing" that my husband would laugh should he see me. I also thought I wasn't doing too bad for the first time out. However, it wasn't "Dancing With The Stars" either. The instructor was very good and very petite. Ever so often she would just spontaneously do what I call a "Rebel Yell" (being from the South), which from time to time completely startled me. It was so interesting and called on reserves I wasn't sure I had that I think I will do it again next week! emoticon

    Zumba is totally awesome! I love it and have been doing it for about a year now. However, just lately I have had to give it away because I keep twisting my knee. Lots of people have twisted their knees doing Zumba, so just be mindful of that, Linda.

Here is a site you can visit for Zumba carpet gliders, that may be useful.

Good luck with it all and I'm glad you're going back next week.

Nice pic of you too! emoticon emoticon

Well, I Did It!

Sunday, July 01, 2012

What did I do? Well, I will tell you. In the last two weeks, I got through a graduation, a tree falling on my car during a thunderstorm while babysitting for my granddaughter, birthday parties for my 2-year-old granddaughter, a 40th birthday for my son-in-law, a "cousins" reunion on my
husband's side and a christening. Then there is one more thing to go--I am giving my husband a birthday party for one of those "significant number birthdays" next Sunday. I will not pretend that I got through all that anywhere close to perfect. But I did do better than I would have prior to being associated with this site. I think SparkPeople is a really great place, and I am glad that I found it quite by accident 3 years ago. I get motivation, inspiration and oh yes! Spark Points! For anyone new stay close, listen even closer and soon you will be happily and productively involved in SparkPeople. Trust me.

  Wow. Sounds like you've had a lot going on lately. I hope no one was injured when the tree fell on your car. You don't have to be perfect, you just have to get through it. Good luck with your husband's party. I hope you're able to rest a little afterwards!

Nutrition Tracker

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Today for only the second time I got all four categories--Calories, Fat, Carbs and Protein on target. I wondered why I could not get it right before. All the calorie counting, choosing the right foods, etc. I felt like somewhat like a failure. Then it occurred to me that I had been making progress all along--those baby step--that lead to greater and greater success. I also know I am now in the world of real people, not perfect ones. emoticon

Hi. I am new and would like to hear from others. Would welcome particularly ways to keep calories down (who wouldn't) ? Also have a particular problem getting up and eating at night. I have, however, made some progress there. I live on the North Shore of Long Island. emoticon
