I am turning 60 this Sunday. I have a couple of friends that passed away last year. They were my age. I have another couple of friends who have serious health issues. My husband has neurological problems that started to get worse this year. <BR> <BR> I finally had an "aha" moment. I want to be healthy, so I started counting calories, which I always hated doing. My knee stopped h... Tue, 18 Mar 2014 14:19:34 EST Exhausted http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5598561 I am feeling exhausted. I thought retiring would be an easy thing. I am packing up a house to move to AZ. Thank goodness I have til the end of January! I worked 12 years in a row on the night shift. I thought I would have an easy time getting into a "normal" sleep pattern. But so far I am still awake a 3 AM. I try and wake up early and let the sun hit me. It helps, but about 3 PM, I feel like a truck hit me! Can't wait to be in AZ, then I can begin my dieting and exercising. I do fe... Sun, 19 Jan 2014 01:23:38 EST Happy new year! I'm back! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5594089 So last year I kind of went off the track. I needed a break. Not enough time, you know all the excuses. 2013 was not a good year for me. I lost 2 good friends, lost a nephew and lost my beloved furry son. I promised my self I would get back to sparking but I didn't know I would be gone for so long. <BR> <BR> 2014 is starting out to be a very good year? My husband and I retired today! January 14, 2014 will be the beginning of a new lifestyle. Our girls want us to move into a house a... Tue, 14 Jan 2014 21:59:45 EST Lost another close friend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5385321 On June 4, 2013, I lost another good friend. She was only 58 years old. I had known her for 10 years and saw and talked to her every day. She died suddenly of a massive heart attack. She just died instantly. I am very sad about this loss. I probably won't be on SparkPeople for at least a couple of weeks. I do plan on logging my fitness minutes but that is about all I can promise. Please say a prayer for Diane.

He was suffering from urinary stones in his bladder and penis. He was 9 1/2 years old. He would have to endure surgery and more pain. With my work schedule I would not be able to take care of him like he should be. It would cost $1700 that I don't have. I was with him at the end. I held him, talked to him and hugged him while he was euthanized. He went quietly, quickly and pea... Thu, 30 May 2013 00:00:01 EST May 1-first day goal met http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5342636 May 1, 2013. <BR> 3.2 mile bike ride. 20 minutes. It was extremely windy out, but i went and rode my bike. The wind was pushing me around and I was actually struggling to go forward. <BR> <BR> I am determined to ride my bike everyday for at least 20 minutes. Hopefully, I can make this a warm up for other exercises when I get home from my ride. Today, though, my thighs are sore. I am not going to push it. The wind has me wheezing a little, so that's it for me tonight. <em>332</em>... Wed, 1 May 2013 23:23:19 EST First bike ride of the season http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5335783 Well, I was all set. Then I sat on my bike and had two flats!!! Luckily my awesome hubby fixed them for me. I headed out not knowing what to expect. Traffic, mean people, mean dogs. I was proven wrong! I had an awesome ride. It was about 6:45 PM, 82 degrees, beautiful sky. I rode about 3.5 miles. I didn't want to push it. I had sore inner thighs and bum last year when I rode and did not want to do that again! My heel felt great. I have to give up walking and running till this heel... Thu, 25 Apr 2013 22:34:09 EST Bike mode http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5334799 I am about to break out my bike. Riding outside for the first time in a long time. The traffic where I live is kind of heavy and I am going to go exploring for bike lanes. My walking and running is really irritating my Achilles heel injury. I have all the gear ready. Helmet, gloves, gps watch and of course sunscreen! <BR> <BR> I have had such a week that made it impossible for me to workout. I plan on riding Thursday, if nothing comes up. Wish me luck! <BR> <BR> I know riding eve... Thu, 25 Apr 2013 00:26:27 EST felt like a weakling today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5323394 I felt like a weakling at work today. We had to move some bundles of newspaper, and half way through the night, I felt my an ache in my shoulder. I don't usually feel any aches at work. But I have laid off exercising all month. I have totally ignored my strength dvd's. I used to love to do them. Well, last night just made me feel angry at myself. I have no real excuse for not exercising, just not feeling right and just feeling lazy! <BR> <BR> So, today I went at it with renewed energy... Sun, 14 Apr 2013 23:44:23 EST Healthiest thing you do http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5321218 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/5/l252686296.jpg"> <BR> <BR> I hadn't felt very sparkly for the past week. No exercising for one week! I saw this motivational poster this morning and it helped me turn things around. I took Daisy the wonder dog out for a 2 mile walk. It felt good to be out in the morning sunshine and break a sweat. <BR> <BR> The healthiest thing I did: I walked! <BR> <BR> Fri, 12 Apr 2013 20:36:26 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5313146 I haven't been feeling well lately. I stopped taking a certain medication and I feel a lot better. It was giving me vertigo, back aches and really tired. It is out of my system, and I am back to exercising. <BR> <BR> Jump roped and took Daisy for a walk. Weekends are not a good time for me to exercise. I have to go to work early and it is physically harder than the rest of the week. But, I am going to try and at least get on my bike on the weekends. <BR> <BR> Have an awesome weeke... Fri, 5 Apr 2013 22:50:01 EST Introducing: Daisy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5305793 Here is a picture of Daisy the wonder walking/running dog! <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/8/l180643420.jpg"> Sat, 30 Mar 2013 22:28:39 EST new GPS watch http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5300142 I have been missing in action for a bit. Saturday was my BD. I am 59 years old now. Counting down to 60, and I am excited. Don't know why, but I am. I got a GPS watch a Garmin Forerunner 110. Couldn't get the 10 but the 110 is awesome. I love it! I tried it out on a Daisy walk and it shows everything! Even the temperature! I have a feeling I am going to use this every day! Have an awesome week, and stay healthy! <em>312</em> <em>311</em> Mon, 25 Mar 2013 22:42:15 EST Second run/walk of the year http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5291748 I kept track of my run today. I actually went a little faster this time. I also ran further! I don't know if i am going to keep on track with the C25K. I think I like running on my own schedule. I love running outside with Daisy. I am going to get a GPS watch for my bd next week! I will have to think real hard on the C25K. decisions, decisions! I will think about it tonite at work lol!! ;) But I will definetly keep running. I see the changes beginning to happen so I am very happy r...

I just threw on her harness, the only one I could find and snapped it on her and left the house. I really was just going for a walk, but it turned into a run/walk. It was great, I felt great! I have to leave the house a little earlier, because it got really dark and scary. But not scary enough to stop! Funny thing about Daisy, she hates to w... Fri, 15 Mar 2013 23:57:14 EST W3d2 feeling awesome! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5287178 So far so good. Staying on track. No injuries, staying braced up. Warming up, cooling down and stretching part of the whole package. Have a great Friday! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/1/l1107977776.jpg"> Fri, 15 Mar 2013 00:02:48 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5285978 I did not want to workout today. I just want to do my running program every other day. Today I made myself get on the recumbent bike while watching a dvr of the Biggest Loser lol! I was inspired by the contestants and my spark friends. I biked 30 minutes. I have no soreness from the running. I have learned the hard way that cooling down and stretching is absolutely necessary. Plus I just add that time to my fitness minutes. <BR> <BR> And the big surprise is that I have had not one pie... Thu, 14 Mar 2013 00:21:00 EST W3D1 DONE! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5284683 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/1/l1108796976.jpg"> Wed, 13 Mar 2013 00:36:21 EST W2D3. C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5281959 Looking forward to week 3. This time change is not doing me very good. I hate change and so does my body clock lol! I felt very good running today. My side cramp is a distant memory now. Soreness is all gone. Have a great week! <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/7/l873752123.jpg"> Mon, 11 Mar 2013 00:52:57 EST w2d2 c25k and a surprise! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5279505 I finished my c25k. I was getting ready for work, I turned to drop a kleenex in a wastepaper basket, and I felt as if someone had grabbed my obliques and twisted them. I gasped because of the surprise and the pain! I thought I was going to be really sore, but I am just a tiny bit sore. What the heck was that all about?! I cooled down and stretched after my c25k, I did not over do anything at all. So I am puzzled as to why this happened. Any ideas? <em>24</em> Fri, 8 Mar 2013 22:40:57 EST week 2 day 1 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5273699 I did very well today. Finished with c25k, and started in on my new Zumba Core. I did that for 26 minutes, I feel great. I love doing Zumba with the Xbox 360 Kinect. It makes it so fun. I know I looked really uncoordinated, but no one was watching and I was having a ball! I hope I have found the right combination of exercise to keep me motivated. <em>224</em> Tue, 5 Mar 2013 01:08:50 EST Week 1 c25k done! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5270523 I am looking forward to starting week 2. If I don't feel ready for it, I will do week 1 again. I want to graduate even if it takes 6 months! <em>315</em> Sat, 2 Mar 2013 23:55:30 EST Week 1 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5264177 Today was week 1 day 1 of the c25k program. I had graduated from this program about a year and a half ago. This time around I walked and ran faster than the last time. I am determined to do it right this time. I will take my recovery days. And I will cool down and stretch each and every time i do it. I am older and wiser this time around. Hopefully, no injuries this time! <em>104</em> <em>312</em> Tue, 26 Feb 2013 00:47:15 EST 5th day of no candy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5255623 Today was the 5th day without candy. At this point I don't carve it. Yay!! <BR> <BR> Today I worked out 68 minutes. <BR> <BR> I biked, kick boxed, jump roped, and walked. <BR> <BR> I hope I can continue to this at least 5 times a week! <BR> <BR> I am hoping to stop drinking diet coke on March 1. Tue, 19 Feb 2013 00:31:46 EST No candy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5253027 This is the third day of no candy. I white knuckled it last night at work. This is a habit I have developed over the holidays. I would start my route with some M&M's, or some other candy. My reasoning is "it's for the energy." I have get some rice cakes, like I did when I lost 50 lbs. Tonight, I might take a stalk of celery with a little peanut butter on it. I will cut it into bite size pieces and take a plastic fork.....I will let you know how that goes. I think this just might work.... Sat, 16 Feb 2013 21:34:07 EST Hard month to give up candy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5252106 Of course, I had to wait for valentines day to decide to quit candy. It was starting to get out of control. I just can not have candy anywhere near me. I quit candy before, but it knows me by name. It just calls to me. I have to learn to resist. I have been craving it, I have none in the house. So I am blogging to get through the craving. I will probably be through the weekend before I stop craving it. I have to buy some Carmel flavored rice cakes, I think they might help. I am stro... Fri, 15 Feb 2013 22:48:19 EST Feeling good February http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5235079 This is the second day in a row of exercising! WooHoo! Yeah, right! I am so disgusted with myself. I get side lined with injuries (exercise related) and go into a food frenzy. My knee is feeling better, my ankle and calf are feeling better. I am trying to just bike for 30 minutes to regain my strength in my legs. I am sneaking in 100 jump ropes a day. If I feel any pain at all I will,stop the jumping and just bike. Spring is coming real soon and I won't be able to wear my camouflaging... Sat, 2 Feb 2013 23:12:15 EST Tried and got it done http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5228065 Yesterday I said I was going to try and workout. Well, I got it done. I did 36 minutes of various exercises and it felt so good. Today I biked 24 minutes with no knee or leg pain at all. I will continue to exercise but I will take it easy and build on it every day. I am so happy to be breaking a sweat again! Mon, 28 Jan 2013 23:59:11 EST i am going to try........... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5225292 It is very early Sunday morning. Just in from work. I am going to try and do some sort of exercise today. I wil work on my abs, or do some arm exercises. Maybe some virtual hitting the heavy bag. I am going to "test" my ankle/calf and see if I can start jumping around again. It felt better today at work, so I am hoping to do something today. I promise to warm up and take it easy. If I post it~I will do it! Have a great Sunday! Sun, 27 Jan 2013 08:31:57 EST Jump rope fact http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5204672 I just read a spark people blog written by a personal trainer. She says that: <BR> 10 minutes of jump roping (at 120 turns a minute) burns the same calories as 30 minutes of jogging! <BR> <BR> That sounds great to me. I am going to get serious about jump roping. <em>318</em> <BR> <BR> The sparks people article is called "Jump roping For Fitness" Sun, 13 Jan 2013 08:52:11 EST Heel problem again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5204303 I wore the wrong shoes and hurt my heel again. I think the back of some shoes are too high for me and they hit my Achilles heel just right to hurt it. My left heel is the only one affected. Those shoes are now in the trash! I have been side lined from jump roping, but I am biking at least 10 minutes a day. I am taking it easy today, my hip is hurting due to arthritis, and tonight is a hard night at work. <BR> <BR> Hope you have a peaceful weekend! Sat, 12 Jan 2013 22:36:30 EST Feeling great Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5198024 I had a whole blog written and it got lost. I was pretty good too. It just said how well I was feeling physically and mentally. I hope it lasts. <BR> <BR> Thought I should do some strength training today, I usually don't but I need to add it to my workouts. <BR> <BR> Today I: <BR> <BR> Biked. 30 mins. <BR> Resistance band workout. 40 mins <BR> Jump roped. 9 min. 1079 <em>318</em> <BR> <BR> Total jumps for January : 2382 <em>318</em> Wed, 9 Jan 2013 00:30:57 EST Flu shot http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5195827 Today I got my flu shot. I know it's kind of late, but I am such a procrastinator! I am not going to do any strenuous exercise today. I will do some arm exercises, that I was told would ease some soreness that would occur at the injection site. <BR> <BR> Other than that I am really excited about jump roping. I have read that 20 minutes of jump roping burns more calories than 20 minutes of jogging! That sounds really awesome. So I am looking into jump rope workouts on the web, and it ...

But, I am a glutton for punishment. I hand scrubbed the edges of my bathroom and the mopped it. I laundered all the bath mats, dried them and put them back in place. <BR> Mopped the rest of the house. My house is completely tiled. <BR> Started watching my Freaky Friday ghost programs, decided to jump on my recumbent bike and biked 5 miles in 28 minutes. <BR> <BR> I like to spot clean, I can't clean everything in one day.

This is the last day of my hellacious work load. Things will be back to normal on Sunday, but the worst is over. <em>224</em> I will exercise on Friday! Hope your day was a good one! Thu, 27 Dec 2012 23:27:00 EST Work interferes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5177163 Work is interfering with my workout today. My job is extremely physical today, so I am not working out, just working. I am burning calories though. I am considering this a strength training day. <BR> <BR> Biked 3 miles in 18 minutes~just could not resist real exercise! Wed, 26 Dec 2012 22:40:16 EST Sparking! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5176245 I once was addicted to exercising. I think it might happen again. But it is a good addiction. <BR> <BR> Today I: <BR> <BR> walked 1 mile <BR> 5 minutes of 3 lb weight arm exercises <BR> 50 jumping jacks <BR> 10 minute jump rope cardio work oThe last one was really hard, really had my heart pounding! <BR> <BR> for a total of 38 minutes. Wed, 26 Dec 2012 00:31:01 EST I am motivated http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5175551 Today I felt the spark! <BR> <BR> Thanks to all that commented on my previous blog. It helps to know there is someone out there that cares. <BR> <BR> My heel still feels good. I like to exercise, it helps relieve stress and depression. But, sometimes I get lazy and just give up. I had previously had a 50 lb. weight loss. I have gained about 16 lbs. back. But this year, well, I just might be different. Now that I know the Mayan prediction is not coming true, lol! <BR> <BR> I have... Tue, 25 Dec 2012 00:20:59 EST New goal set today in honor of my son http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5174785 Today would have been my sons 28th birthday. He was killed in a highway accident. He was only 18, soon to be 19. He was going to be a good man. We still miss him everyday. He is forever loved and never forgotten. It is a hard season to lose a loved one. So for about 3 weeks, I kind of lost control of the whole diet and exercise thing. I indulged in goodies, that I would not have normally. I gained weight. <BR> <BR> Well, I got a grip today. In honor of my son, I started walking a... Sun, 23 Dec 2012 22:54:11 EST no more walking~back to dvd's http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5162054 My achilles heel is still a problem. It gets sore when I do a little bit of walking. I have to ice it down and tape it too. I did Jillian's Kickboxing dvd and it didn't hurt at all. So, no walking but back to the dvd's. Which is OK with me, because I like that a lot better. I am doing Jillian again tonight. Tomorrow I will start strength training. So I can alternate days with cardio and strength. <BR> <BR> Hope you all have an awesome day.

I think my body is telling me "I don't think so!". About a week ago, I walked 2.75 miles. When I got home, I had a raised bump on my achilles heel. It's not painful, just kind of scary looking.
