Well I just got back from 3 glorious days down the Jersey Shore! While the weather was a bit uncooperative 2 of the days, a bad day at the beach is better than a good day anywhere else!! I also had the pleasure of spending time with my two oldes... Read more

Where Oh Where?
Sometimes I read things here on SP that are so meaningful and important to me that I copy them here so I can look back at them from time to time.
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You d... Read more
Saturday August 2
Saturday is usually a day I don't go to the gym. I had planned to go today, but alas, this is my middle daughter's birthday and I went shopping for her. Plenty of walking and since I was out early(and my gym's Sat. hours aren't very convenient)n... Read more
Don't Just Count your years...
Make your years count! Today is my 53rd birthday and I know that I finally am living that adage. I've never for one minute thought about age in relation to weight loss and fitness. Though I do get reminded that I'm not in my 20's anymore by the ... Read more
Great class today!
Spinning class today was awesome! It just drove home the point I made in my blog yesterday, about excuses. This was the instructor that I complained so much about over the winter. I had been skipping her class and doing other cardio because I di... Read more
Well, I'm keeping my streak going. Spinning class 8 days in a row, with no serious knee issues. I also worked out my legs again today(Wednesday is leg day)and though it's a little tight(swollen)I'm very comfortable.

My poor baby girl!

Is it soup yet?
The humidity here in Jersey is out of control! We got 2 minute downpour, and have no relief from this horrible humidity. Alas, this is nothing new, but just felt the need to vent. I also had to go and replace my phone (just got it in February). ... Read more
What a weekend!
Well, I have a lot to be proud of this holiday weekend. Since I've been losing the weight, I've talked about running in our neighboring town's 4 Mile Freedom Run held on July 4th. But, I've always talked myself out of it, as it's touted as quite... Read more
How did this happen so quickly? I can't believe it's already July. The summer is flying by. I've only been to the beach once, due to the stinking high price of gas! I may go tomorrow, as the weather is supposed to be great. Today, I'm doing an e... Read more
I hate the humidity
Ran a 5K today, but really struggled as the humidity is really up. I was slow and didn't have too much energy either. I think part of the energy was due to the fact that I hadn't drank my usual qt of water this mornging...... Read more
Worked out with my son today!
OK how cool is it to get to work out at the gym with your incredibly handsome, and ridiculously strong 21 year old son? Well, I'll tell you, really cool. Even more so, he did my workout today(since we were both working back and bis)and he's a co... Read more
