Happy New Year Everyone!

Thursday, December 31, 2009

Well, personally speaking, I have gone a tad overboard this season. emoticon Tomorrow a new year starts and new resolutions are being made. I will reach my new me in 2010 and I expect this to happen sometime near September. A lot of work awaits me and I am looking forward to the challenge.

Yesterday, on the 30th I went skating with my grand-sons after I had not put on skates for 25 years! I enjoyed it so much and because I have been exercising, I did not feel afraid of falling as I did not feel so fragile as I would have if I had not been doing so. My legs were strong and I did not feel any pain in my shins. Next feat is to go tobogganing with the kids. Now, this should be fun.

Again all, Happy New Year and may all your wishes come true.

I am now in Canada with my daughter and grand-sons

Sunday, December 06, 2009

I did arrive Thursday night but I was an exhausted person for a couple of days because of the jet lag (we are 5 hours ahead in Dakar). It did affect my appetite but luckily for me, I am now down to 159 lbs. My exercise schedule was somewhat perturbed during the travel and aftermath but this morning, I did a core P90X session with my daughter. Man, that was NOT easy. emoticon I did finish it though but with modifications of the movements to accommodate my level of fitness. It was fun though. Yesterday, I went for a long walk by myself and in the evening did another shorter one with my daughter and her sons.

Goodbye 160s!!!

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

Yes, I have finally come off the 160s but not by a long shot. I told my niece that I now weighed 159.9 lbs and she teased me and said that I might as well say 160 lbs. I said "No way, Jose!" That one/tenth of a pound made a difference! It has not been easy, but it is all well worth it. emoticon

Had a good walk today!

Saturday, November 21, 2009

There was a charity race/walk today in Dakar. I participated and was accompanied by my niece. She ran half of the race but I walked the 5 kms diligently and did a 17 minute mile walk. A young student who is in her second year, kept on starting to run and then would stop and slow down so much that I always caught up with her. I just smiled at her and told her that if she stuck by me, she would eventually finish the walk or the run in due time. She joined me and confided in me that she felt like quitting halfway but that she was proud of herself for actually finishing. We talked about the importance of exercising and she was surprised to find out that I had full grown daughters and that I was a grand-mother of four children. She said that she was going to work on her exercise schedule. emoticon
