It's been a while since I last blogged, and I've been very sporadic in my visits to the site lately, but now that the wedding and holidays are over, I'll be able to be a regular again. It's amazing what Spark People has done for me over th... Read more

good spinning class today

Tuesday, November 13, 2007      1 comments

Today we had a substitute instructor for spinning class. She was really good and it's nice to have someone different now and again. Typically, my week has the same two instructors splitting the 5 days. I like the one a lot, but the other not so ... Read more

Well there are less than 3 weeks until the wedding...should be exciting, but it's exhausting. I really hope my son will be happy in his new life. I guess we never stop worrying about our children. Once the stress of the wedding and the holidays ... Read more

I'm glad I finally took the risk

Friday, November 09, 2007      0 comments

Why did we stop taking risks? In large part, we're afraid of screwing up. We've settled into our comfort zones and don't want to look like a fool, to ourselves or others. What's the price we pay for our pursuit of perfection? No growth, no sense... Read more

What am I doing up so early?

Thursday, November 08, 2007      0 comments

Well it's 5:44 am, I've been sitting here since 4:30 and can't figure out why. I think it's the wedding count down that's on...24 days until my son's wedding. All I think about is dress fittings, rehersal dinners, hair appts. etc. I'll be glad w... Read more

It's been a month

Since I last blogged on SP. I'd like to say I've been busy, but that's not so. Mostly, I've just not been motivated to write or visit the website. I've kept myself going with my exercise, in fact I recently completed a 9 week strength training p... Read more

My how time seems to fly! 22 months have passed since I began my journey to get fit and healthy. I'm still 7 pounds from my goal weight, but see such changes to my body that I can live with my current weight if I must. Of course there are some t... Read more

Very Exciting!

Saturday, September 08, 2007      1 comments

Well this has been a very interesting week for me. I've been stuck at the same weight for a number of weeks now, but it seems that my body is continuing to improve even though the scale sees no change. This week I was able to do a little shoppin... Read more

Butt-kicking workout!!

Wednesday, September 05, 2007      0 comments

This was week two of my new "strength" workout. It says it's designed for women who are not afraid of lifting heavy...that's me! However, this program has me in an extreme amount of muscle pain. Climbing the stairs is really a killer and I can't... Read more

I missed my gym workout today, and feel very sluggish because of it...however, my knee seems to be mended almost 90% today. I can still feel the knot, but it's barely there and is very small, not the baseball size it tomorrow I'm off to... Read more

Well, I'm not sure what I've done to my knee, but it has me concerned because there is a hard swelling at the top outside part of my knee. I don't know what the cause is, and it's not that horribly painful(since I have constant pain it's difficu... Read more

Well today, on the anniversary of the completion of my 52nd consecutive week at the gym without a miss, I'm missing a day. I seem to have a slight injury to my bad knee. This week I started doing leg work again (I have not worked my legs out spe... Read more

Wish I'd learned this sooner

Concentration is the ability to think of absolutely nothing when it is absolutely necessary. I've always had that ability, I just don't really know why it took me so long to use it to lose weight and get healthy. I'm constantly asking myse... Read more
