I overindulged yesterday. But I know what I did wrong and what led to the two overindulgences. I do not want to beat myself up for the two poor choices, but I want to name them. 1. I chose to "rest" on the couch after lunch. I felt sort ... Read more

I am feeling more energized today. I have gotten back to some walking and I even got myself up early to go swimming this morning. Yay. The water felt really good (it had been several weeks since I had been in the pool). The weather is lo... Read more

I was pretty blue yesterday morning. It was my 90th day of a login streak, so I wanted to make a blog posting to mark the nice round number. I posted that “the air had gone out of my sails”, even though my head knows how much I can benefit from ... Read more

The first 60 days of the summer --May/June -- I had done really well in terms of motivation and consistency. This last week has been more difficult. After having a great 4th of July weekend and going kayaking three times, I hit a wall so-to-sp... Read more

Tuesday, July 01, 2014      3 comments

I hadn't been timing myself these last few weeks as I tried to do more push-ups. So today I put on the timer: one minute. This had an interesting effect. I tried harder, went more quickly, did more push-ups and went until complete exhaustion ... Read more
