MORE Great Oldies

Friday, February 24, 2012



I'd like to share more oldies that we work out to. And we're having a blast! Truth be told, for a while, I was starting to get bored with the same workout routine, but these tunes (a few of very many) MAKE it fun, fun, fun (no, my daddy didn't take my T Bird away, I didn't have one to begin with emoticon) Enjoy!

    We had a blast seeing the Beach Boys just this past summer at the Chautauqua Institute in western NY. They did ALL their oldies and even though only two of the original band members were there it was such fun!

My Husband is nagging me! And that is GOOD!

Monday, February 20, 2012



I knew the title of today's blog would grab your attention! It all started this past weekend, Saturday and into this morning (Monday). I'm sitting here at my computer, then just before breakfast, he came marching over with my jacket and earmuffs and said "ok, get off your *donkey*, you are coming for a walk with me---now!". "Uh, ok honey", I replied, giving a giggle. We took a 30 minute walk. Then next thing I knew, he made breakfast; oatmeal, scrambled eggs with the non-stick spray, coffee, and 1% glass of milk. Yum! For lunch, we had a turkey wrap loaded with lots of lettuce, tomato, onion, mustard, and a small slice of pepper-jack cheese (he split one slice between us). For supper, he made a huge Greek salad, a particular favorite of ours. Oh, and during the course of the days, we drank water and MORE water.
He appointed himself as my personal coach/trainer. Truth be told, I started to slack off for a bit, he noticed and got concerned, and now, with the help of him and spark friends, I got back into the swing of it! I am posting some tunes that we exercise to when we're in the house (and this will really give our ages away LOL!!).
Have fun with these 1950s/early '60s instrumentals! Here they are:

    He is definitely a keeper. At first I thought he was doing all this for a missed anniversary and birthday. But to read that he got concerned and is now your personal trainer makes this all even better. Random acts of love like this truly make you appreciate him even more. Great man for a great woman. Let's admit it, classic rock is so much better than the music that's made today. Can't stand voice synthesizers.

Working out to my most favorite group

Saturday, February 04, 2012



I am doing my at-home exercising to The Beatles! Who'd have thought that years ago (too many LOL!!) that most of their music would be great to work out to! Wow, the 1/2 hour just flew by. I was using my stretch bands, kettlebell, and just plain dancing around. And it didn't feel like a hard days night (couldn't resist!)

    I used to be OBSESSED with the Beatles. This was high school. I had a shrine to them in my bedroom, listened only to their CDs, and couldn't hold a conversation without mentioning them. I'm sure I was a total pill!

I still have all their music on my iPod, and love when it comes on during a workout! Enjoy!

    Oh yeah, got a healthy dose of Beatles in my mix! Drive My Car, And Your Bird Can Sing, Taxman, Getting Better...could go on & on!

    I came here because I saw your comment on Don's blog. I also love 'A Hard Day's Night' and 'Get Back'. Am still a huge George Harrison fan. I never would've left him for Clapton. However, one can't blame Boyd if George did tell Eric "Fine, you get her, I get your girlfriend." WTG on making a workout much more fun!

Home-made Soup to my Rescue

Sunday, January 08, 2012

My husband and I are going to a party tonight and there will be a buffet with heaven knows how many choices. Yesterday, I made chicken vegetable soup with left over chicken. It has carrots, onion, garlic, and celery in it. I used a salt-free seasoning to take away the blandness. Right now, I am having a big bowl so I won't arrive starving and succumbing to the temptation of making wrong choices and eating too much. And once again, I'm posting this blog for accountability.
Have a great day,
Chris

    Good game plan. Never go out to dinner or to a party (or even shopping) hungry.
