I'm glad I finally took the risk
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?
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
Tuesday October 2
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

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
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 was...so tomorrow I'm off to... Read more
good to remember
There are natural consequences that accompany every choice we make in life. Some opportunities inevitably pass us by, but we can take advantage of others. Many people feel powerless but this is rarely the case--some opportunities just require a ... 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
wow it's been a while
Summer seems to have far too many things for me to do and keeps me off the computer(that's not a bad thing though). Much is going on in my life and it's a bit hectic right now, but I've kept up my program. The weight seems a bit sluggish, and I ... Read more
Another week gone!
Well, today is the beginning of a new week. I can't believe how fast summer has flown by! My kids are all getting ready to return to college, and my oldest son and his fiancee are preparing to move out into their own place on the 22nd(they get m... Read more
