Trying Something Different This Week

Thursday, November 05, 2009      9 comments

Since I seem to be so full of energy this week (I don't know where this is coming from!), I decided to try doing a water aerobics class every day (a total of 5 classes). Today was day four and I'm feeling fairly good! So far I'm not sore (keep... Read more

I feel like the Eveready Bunny today!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009      4 comments

Since I'm having adjustment problems with the time change anyway, I decided to get up and get started at 6:30a.m. this morning. (That was after waking at 5:30 a.m. and lying there for an hour!) I started with packing my gym bag, and fixing bre... Read more

What are your November goals?

Monday, November 02, 2009      3 comments

I can't believe it's November already, can you? The fall colors, the cooler air and the impending holidays make November a pretty exciting month! It's also an opportunity for a fresh start. We can do this; we owe it to ourselves to commit t... Read more

Good Workout Today

Thursday, October 29, 2009      5 comments

Today our water aerobics class did something a little different. We did interval training - in the water! I did really well too! I wasn't out of breath and I was able to keep up with the instructor. Of course she's 33 and really buff, and us... Read more

Here it is, Wednesday already!

Wednesday, October 28, 2009      2 comments

I have to say that I've been doing well since I decided to re-dedicate myself to health and hold myself accountable for my exercise and what I put into my mouth. I feel very good about it and the time is going faster than I thought was possible... Read more

Stress Takes A Toll

Sunday, October 25, 2009      4 comments

This past week has been a very stressful one for me. I have accepted the fact that there are many "stressors" that I can't control and this week was chock full of them. That said, I must admit that I didn't do my best job at controlling emotio... Read more

Wednesday, October 14, 2009      7 comments

You know those times where you put yourself in an impossible situation? Well, last night I refused to let myself be drawn into one of those situations. The old me would have been sucked right into a set of circumstances that would have be detr... Read more

Mixed Feelings Today

Sunday, October 11, 2009      4 comments

My mother died 24 years ago today. I have very mixed feelings where she was concerned and am currently trying to make sense of it. She was very smart and educated for a women of her generation but I don't think the members of her family treate... Read more

I made good choices last night

Thursday, October 08, 2009      4 comments

I'm pleased with the choices that I made at last night's team dinner. I ate lots of salad and I chopped up some beets instead of using salad dressing. I did eat some pulled pork (with BBQ sauce of course) and a piece of garlic bread. Yummy! ... Read more

Today our water aerobics class really targeted our arms, shoulders and upper back. By the time the class was over, I was already tired and a bit sore. I hope we didn't overdo it ! I'll just have to continuously do some very light stretches to... Read more

Today we walked together for the seventh time in our Polk County Group. Sadly, there were only three of us walking today but we had a great time! Our time was a bit slower today due to the high level of humidity. We let moderation be our guid... Read more

A Successful Week!

Saturday, October 03, 2009      5 comments

This week was a very successful week for me! I did five "kick butt" workouts and I remembered to rest when I got home after each one. I'm caught up on all of my laundry and grocery shopping. I've been trying to eat healthy home cooked meals a... Read more
