I feel a whole lot better than I would if I had done nothing.
I did not exercise this morning before work, had a ton of things going on after work. But when it was time to update my blogs here and other places, I didn't want to whine about not exercising. So I set a timer for 10 minutes and did some marc... Read more

I Wore a Pair of Jeans Yesterday I'd Outgrown Two Years Ago
Measurements aren't as accurate as the scale and I've been getting numbers that confuse me, but still, I'm showing a decrease in either my waist or hips each week.
And a few days ago, I put on a pair of pants to go to a meeting and they we... Read more
I'm happy with this week's progress
I'm not using the scale to track my progress this year. What I'd like to do is just go by my clothes, but I need something to measure. So I'm tracking my waist and hip measurements.
This first week of my re-commitment, I lost 1 inch off m... Read more
Had one of my really good walks today
I walked 3 miles today which hasn't happened in a long time. I want to get back to that being my norm. It's my preferred form of exercise and without getting out to walk, I don't move around much. I'm going to start wearing my pedometer again t... Read more
Today has been so full of inspiration
I woke up this morning with the answer to something I've been pondering for weeks. So I was able to start doing some things, where I'd previously been stuck.
Then, I saw a video on facebook that I can't link to from here. Thanks Lorraine f... Read more
Lynn Lewis for hire
I have all the right-brain, artistic, ADD tendencies: easily distracted, often procrastinate, day dream, and so on. For quite some time, I've wanted to start an online business. I've read and read and read on this subject, taken some minor steps... Read more
Unexpectedly got a little exercise today
I hadn't planned to get any exercise today, even though I made a decision last night to become active again on the site and get back to some of the things that worked for me a few years ago.
But while taking out the garbage, I found that d... Read more
I can imagine how I'm going to feel tomorrow, my back and thighs and abs are sore already from today's exercise.

I had my first Zumba class today!
That was fun. Fortunately, the steps weren't very complicated and I know that could change in other sessions, but this was a great way for me to get started.
I also walked about 5 miles today. One mile before and the other four after Zumb... Read more
This gym might be the right spot for me
I think I have found a gym where I can be comfortable by virtue of the fact that there are a lot of people there my age and much older. There were old, fit people everywhere. They played racket ball, basketball, worked out on the machines and th... Read more
Why is consistency such an issue for me?
I wouldn't dream of going a day without brushing my teeth. Other than that, I can't think of anything else that I do consistently. Thinking about it, I realize I don't even watch a tv show for more than one season. There are exceptions but most... Read more
I put off walking until this afternoon, then walked the 3.5 miles to my hustle class. Then danced for 45 minutes. Then went to the grocery store! I think I'm going to sleep very well tonight.

Just reporting what's happening
Although it may rain soon, it's a beautiful fall morning and I had a perfect walk.
The location I wanted for TOPS was approved. That's great, but now I haven't heard back from the person who was going to start this with me and I've gotten ... Read more
