Week One - done
Sunday, November 13, 2016      4 comments

So, I've completed week one of the Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge. I had a couple of instances where I wanted "something" but I think for me it's emotional and stress related. As you probably know, I started a new job in July. Apparently, I'm t... Read more
Happy Wednesday...
Wednesday, November 09, 2016      3 comments

Last night was a bust for working out, but a success for the Taming my sweet tooth challenge. I walked by the candy bowl at work and while I had a teeny thought about it, I didn't get any. Then a quick trip to Target after voting where I saw Dar... Read more
Taming my sweet tooth...

Yes, I'm still here. The move has been good and bad, but I'm trying to just sally forth and make it work. Maybe there's a blog entry in there somewhere. The move has left me eating more sugar again, which isn't good for me. So, I've joined... Read more
Working on a game plan...
Sunday, August 07, 2016      4 comments

I need a game plan. Right now, it's in my head, but I'm thinking maybe I need to write it down somewhere... maybe even on paper. We like to do things online, but sometimes, maybe paper is better. I've been in the apartment a little over a ... Read more
Discombobulated...

That's the best word for now. I've got another week before the movers come, but the house is 75% packed. There is just still a bunch of clutter. And, I've got to get it de-cluttered so the realtor can make it presentable and hopefully start show... Read more
Craziness ensues...

Well, it's been awhile. I have one session left with the personal trainer. I don't think I lost weight since embarking on this, but I have gained mobility and then the Saturday classes helped me get back some flexibility. Maybe the weights as w... Read more
Post Challenge - Keeping on
Sunday, April 24, 2016      4 comments

Thanks for the comments last week. I am excited about the new job and the new city and even a new place to live. I love my house, but I'm very much looking forward to downsizing and condo living. I think sometimes we think what we think we're su... Read more
Challenge - Complete
Sunday, April 17, 2016      3 comments

I can't believe it's been a month since my last blog post. The Challenge officially ended a couple of weeks ago, but somehow, I had sessions left over. My last session will be this Tuesday. So, I need to figure out what I'm going to do next. I ... Read more
Challenge - Week 11
Sunday, March 20, 2016      2 comments

I can't believe there is just one more week to the challenge! Because I get two days off for Spring Break, I was able to do an extra workout this week. The trainer couldn't make our regular Tuesday, so I wound up going Wednesday night and Thur... Read more
Challenge - Week 10
Sunday, March 13, 2016      5 comments

Well, this was the supposed to be the first week of pairing down to two days with the trainer. Thanks to allergies, which I'm blaming on the weather, by the time the end of the week rolled around, I was a zombie. Which means, only one weight s... Read more
Challenge - Week 9
Sunday, March 06, 2016      4 comments

I can't believe Week 9 has ended. Among the exercises we did this week, we did the kettlebell one that killed my hamstrings the last time. In fact, they were still feeling the effects. Fortunately, it seemed to helped. They are not tight aga... Read more
Challenge - Week 8
Sunday, February 28, 2016      3 comments

I can't believe I'm over half done with the challenge. Just four more weeks! This coming week is my last week of three sessions with the trainer. After that, it will go to two. This is one of the best things I've done, but for budget reasons... Read more
Challenge - Weeks 6 & 7
Saturday, February 20, 2016      2 comments

I missed last week! But, not because I stopped working out. I took a short trip out of town and had a boat load of stuff to do before I left. So, I'm combing the two weeks. I'm starting to see results. I'm not sure I've lost weight, but two... Read more
Challenge - Week 5
Sunday, February 07, 2016      5 comments

It's hard for me to believe that I'm now five weeks into the challenge. I graduated this week from flexibility to endurance. Holy moly. Good, though. Tuesday was the first day and through the various exercises I wound up doing over 100 squat... Read more
Challenge - Week 4
Sunday, January 31, 2016      5 comments

So, this week it seems like I'm really moving forward. We've moved from a good portion of the hour being stretching to incorporating more strength training. And, my arms can feel it. Actually, many parts of me can tell. I still stretch... Read more
