It got off to a great start! Went to Curves and did their Curves with Zumba workout. Instead of just doing the regular circuit of machines, which is a great workout anyway, in between the machines, we danced and we danced. I have two left feet, but still love to dance! It doesn't matter if you have two left feet, it doesn't matter if you can't follow "difficult" cardio aerobic moves, it doesn't matter if you are old or young, bi... Sat, 5 Feb 2011 21:41:21 EST Hey, I had an awesome Sunday morning! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3165532 I was in the TC10k run/jog/walk/whatever you like to do. 13,000 people were registered! I think about 10,000 + of those actually got up early and made it into the City by 8:00 am to do their thing! <BR> I spent all my drive into the City running through my head what I was supposed to remember to bring with me, where I was supposed to go, what I was supposed to do - so obsessive of me! Although this would be my 6th year, I was so excited! <BR> I met up with my running partner, as soon as we... Tue, 27 Apr 2010 02:57:16 EST I'll say it again... for those of you who might have missed it the first time! :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2962000 I saw a comment from a Sparker about losing weight after 50. I just couldn't stay quiet. Those of you who know me will laugh at that - "stay quiet" you say?. Don't get discouraged, I say! <BR> <BR> I know it is difficult to lose weight - my mom told me I better "lose it now because you will never lose it after 50". Well maybe I heard her wrong or understood her wrong - but, no matter, I proved that it CAN be done! <BR> <BR> It was deceiving though, the first 9 months I lost 1 pound aver...

I just realized next month (the 20th) I can put on my display picture or where ever one of those "1 year SparkVersary" photos! I hope I remember! Maybe I will download it now and save it for my BIG DAY! <em>244</em> <em>252</em> Tue, 29 Dec 2009 17:16:32 EST Interesting.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2570296 I feel vitalized! It has been dark and rainy for a couple of weeks now. I haven't been able to jog or walk outside after work - too dark, too rainy and I whine too much when I get wet! I haven't been eating well - too many snacks at night. This hasn't been working for me. So, change of pace - tonight as soon as I came home from work I put on my exercise clothes and used the Sparkpeople exercise videos (Cardio Kickboxing and Crunchless Core Workout) for the first time. They were great! A... Tue, 17 Nov 2009 23:21:38 EST Not a Blog, just a Question... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2550731 I don't know how to put this.... but.... What do you do or say when someone at work (someone much larger than you, who should really take better care of herself, a smoker at that!) says that you "shouldn't lose any more weight, you are starting to get that skinny gaunt look", when you still have those last 6 pounds to work on AND more importantly, your goal now is to run the 10k next April FASTER than you did last April so you are thinking more about exercising than ever? Also, don't you peop... Tue, 10 Nov 2009 15:26:51 EST What a laugh! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2543389 Today I put on the biggest pair of pants I own. I used to wear them - last January. I had to stuff a pillow in the front of them in order for them to stay up. I showed my kids and they just shook their heads in amazement. I showed my husband and he just laughed and laughed. He said "Those are your maternity pants, you wore those long ago!" "Nope these are my regular pants that I wore just last January!" What did he say? "Good for you!" Ya, good for me! <em>104</em> <em>9</em> <em>... Sun, 8 Nov 2009 03:37:34 EST "Be Good" http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2538662 A Sparkfriend just told me to "Be Good". I feel REAL GOOD! I just got weighed and measured, last time I did that was August! I figured why weigh and measure, nothing is happening. I'm at a standstill. So never mind that! Instead I am going to try to live healthy! Get some exercise! Eat right! Drum Roll Please! <em>215</em> TA DA! I lost 4.4 pounds and 4 inches! TA DA! Bring on the exercise and healthy living! <em>185</em> <em>104</em> <em>244</em> <em>252</em> Fri, 6 Nov 2009 01:37:55 EST Cookies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2467390 I confess ... ever since I bought that box of Girl Guide cookies (I ate 8 on the bus ride home from work then put the rest of the box in the freezer), I have been haunted by cookies. The next day it was the box of 2 dozen a family member so lovingly bought home from the bakery (I ate 4). The next day it was the cheap bulk cookies from the WallyMart (I ate 4) and the next day too (another 4) and tonight too (another 4). You would think by now I wouldn't want to see another cookie? You woul... Sat, 10 Oct 2009 04:30:54 EST Hmmm.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2327535 So to make a long story short.... <BR> Part I. I take my daughter to soccer practice and do my usual walk/jog around the field a few times. Later she comments to me that a couple of the girls commented to her "Your mother sure is fit!" <em>30</em> She replies, "She's in better shape than me!" What a dear! Of course, she was exaggerating, but I'm still beaming! <em>252</em> <BR> Part II. My son later asked me "When are you going to do your exercises on the floor?" I suspiciously ask ... Tue, 18 Aug 2009 23:54:00 EST Amazing! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2058624 This is going to be short - I really don't like to talk too much, as people who know me are quick to confirm! I must have needed some discipline in my diet and exercise. I just started in January with this "accountability" program, yesterday I got tired of my "baggy butt" pants, I went shopping for a new pair of pants - couldn't stand the thought of actually paying $40 to $50 per pair - hmph! - so I went to the second hand store and bought two almost new pairs of pants for $25.00 total, inc...
