Mon, 9 Sep 2013 10:11:08 EST Yum!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5461960 Had some of those fresh picked peaches with cottage cheese for breakfast this morning. It tasted THAT much better because I picked them!! Wed, 21 Aug 2013 12:06:33 EST Enjoying the Last Days of Summer http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5461180 On my day off yesterday, I headed to the beach which is one of my absolutely favorite places! I relaxed and read and then took a 35 minute walk. On the way home, I stopped at a local farm and picked blueberries and some peaches. The picking for blueberries is really in its last days, so I found another local farm with late picking to go to Saturday. So I get exercise as well as those yummy, anti-oxidant packed blueberries! I love Summer!! Tue, 20 Aug 2013 15:43:46 EST The Beach http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5355100 Had a great Mother's Day going out to breakfast, followed by a nice long walk on the beach with my daughter, her boyfriend and Rosie. Pretty day! Mon, 13 May 2013 11:48:49 EST Not So Fearless Rosie http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5347584 Did some yard work yesterday, taking advantage of the beautiful Spring weather.Although she joined me outside, Rosie wasn't getting her exercise. Inspired by Chicchantal, I decided to take Rosie for a hike at our Town Forest. I'd never visited it before, so I was prepared for a somewhat lengthy hike. When we started, there were two directions to go. So, we started to the right and didn't get more than 100 yds when we faced a small stream which we would have to step into to get across. So w... Mon, 6 May 2013 15:28:25 EST Rosie Crosses the Finish Line!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5328844 Rosie, my very willing companion, and I finished our 5K walk on Saturday in exactly 1 hour. Not the fastest time, but truly an accomplishment for both of us. When I got Rosie as a rescue dog less than 2 years ago it was difficult for her to walk 10 minutes without tiring. Saturday she didn't show any signs of fading until 2.5 miles, but kept on like a trooper! I'm very proud of both of us. But mostly, I'm so happy I could do SOMETHING for friend Carol who has cancer, instead of th... Fri, 19 Apr 2013 15:18:40 EST Today's The Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5321619 for the 5K--Rosie and I are going for it! Wish us luck!! <BR> <BR> In honor of Carol.......... Sat, 13 Apr 2013 09:18:09 EST I forgot http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5317166 to add the most important fact---my best friend has cancer and I want to walk in honor of her and her brave battle. It's looking very good for her, but I would love to show my support. Tue, 9 Apr 2013 12:49:58 EST Needs support http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5317163 for an upcoming 5K. Because of the weather this winter, I haven't walked far---one mile tops. <BR> This weekend there's a 5k Cancer race/walk in my town. I would love to do it, but not sure I can go the distance. Any tips, advice, support?? Thanks! PS Rosie will be with me---she's not used to that long a walk, either! Tue, 9 Apr 2013 12:48:00 EST How? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5309145 I have a burning question...........HOW does a 31 pound Cocker Spaniel manage to command the bed EVERY night???? How can it be possible I woke up this morning to find my feet dangling off the bed and me on the precipice?? A 31 pound dog versus a not to be specified pound human and she manages!! Gotta love her!! ;=) Tue, 2 Apr 2013 16:49:35 EST Surprise! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5300569 What a pleasant surprise to find out that there's a Maple Sugar House in my own neighborhood! This weekend was NH Maple Sugar weekend, so Rosie and I took a nice walk to check it out! This farm where I used to pick strawberries when my kids were little has changed owners and now boards horses, as well as the Sugar Shack. Nice addition to the neighborhood! Tue, 26 Mar 2013 09:55:48 EST I DID IT!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5268810 1,000 fitness points for February with great memories of collecting fitness minutes along with the shells while doing the "Sanibel Stoop"! Fri, 1 Mar 2013 16:28:09 EST Still at it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5264979 Sad that because of the flu, I had to break my exercise streak in the 4 week challenge, but I'm determined to reach my 1,000 fitness minutes this month! Tue, 26 Feb 2013 16:35:19 EST I Think I Can, I Think I Can, I Know I Can!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5259925 Despite this nasty cold, I WILL reach 1,000 Fitness Points this month! It will be the first time ever. I can DO it!!! Fri, 22 Feb 2013 11:43:20 EST Time to get Serious http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5220245 So it's the New Year and I realize that although I've maintained a good fitness level, I'm sure not eating the best for a diabetic, which is hindering my weight loss. So, I've made an appointment with a diabetes nutritionist and a fitness instructor for next week. I've also set up these goals: <BR> Physical <BR> --550 fitness minutes per month, beginning 2-2013 <BR> ----dance more sit less (especially @ work), Zumb... Wed, 23 Jan 2013 14:02:55 EST I Love May!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4878845 SUCH a beautiful day---especially after so much rain. Went to the beach , where I walked an hour, doing intervals. Very proud of myself and I feel GREAT!! Sat, 12 May 2012 23:03:01 EST I LOVE licorice!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4840006 I had a battle with a bag of licorice and the licorice won!!! There's a lot of things I can say no to, but licorice isn't one. So, I'm stepping up the exercise---lesson learned!! Tue, 17 Apr 2012 21:07:45 EST Walking in Sunshine! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4782050 Ok, so I just got back from vacation---saw the Red Sox in Ft Myers. Ate pretty much what I wanted, but I'm very proud of the fact that I wore a pedometer to reach my goal od 10,000 steps. I not only reached it, I had some 12,000 and `13,ooo numbers, too. Now back on track! Sun, 11 Mar 2012 13:36:47 EST New Year, NEW ME!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4648022 Happy New Year! Sun, 1 Jan 2012 10:40:20 EST
